Full of Spice is a 2001 15hh chestnut American Saddlebred mare who originally came to MHARF during a 2011 Pine County humane case. Spice was pregnant at intake and gave birth to her colt Spot in October of 2011. After he was weaned in 2012, Spice competed in the 2012 MHARF Trainer’s Challenge of the Unwanted Horse with trainer George Walker and she is broke to ride. She was adopted a few years later but is now being returned because her adopter can sadly no longer keep her. Spice did spend 90 days of refresher training at Dart Ranch during the summer of 2017. Her previous adopter says she is very smart and can be a bit lazy and resistant to move out. She feels Spice gets really bored with arena work and would do great on trails or obstacle work (but she does not have experience with these at this point). She is not spooky or reactive but is not suitable for a beginner because she is super smart and will take advantage. She has great ground manners and is easy to catch.
Bojangles is a pony who came in during an April 2018 humane case. He was an extreme case of neglect and in serious need of farrier care. Bojangles was taken into foster care by the Hay Chix (haychix.com) who are working on rehabbing him. He is well on is way to recovery!
May is a 2005 standard donkey jennet who came to MHARF during a June 2017 Pine County humane case. This case involved 6 other donkeys, all of whom had not had any veterinary or farrier care for many years. Because of this neglect, several had hooves so long they could barely walk. May was not one of those in the worst condition but she did have very long and misshapen hooves and has required specialized farrier care. They were also all suffering from severe internal and external parasite infestations. May has come a long way since intake and is ready to find a new adoptive home with someone who preferably has experience with donkeys. She is extremely bonded to her friend Apple Brown Betty who came in during the same case and they do need to be adopted together.
