Five Dwarf Nigerian goat bucklings who we took in to help out an organization in the northern part of the state. They are approximately 3 weeks old (as of 11/18/17), have now been castrated and vaccinated but are not dehorned. Very Cute!
Bug is a very nice 2010 14.2hh cream red dun Spanish Mustang mare who originally came to MHARF as an orphaned foal. She competed in our 2015 Trainer’s Challenge, winning Third Overall High Point and People’s Choice with trainer Maddie Kanda. She was then adopted and has been in consistent training since that time. However, Bug’s rider has now outgrown her so Bug is back at MHARF and is available for adoption to a new home. This is a very special little mare with a lot of training, clinic experience, and show experience (eventing). She is looking for a home where she can be someone’s special horse. She needs a youth or small adult rider with soft hands who knows the cues with which she has been trained.
Twizzler is a 14.2hh 2005 pinto gelding who originally came to MHARF several years ago in a humane case. He was adopted out but is now looking for a new home because his current rider has grown and needs a taller horse. Twizzler (formerly known as Ian) is a very nice horse and would be suitable for a confident advanced beginner on up. He has some dressage experience and has done well. He has also done some jumping but does not seem to enjoy it. He is probably happiest on trails. He does get a little “looky” when he encounters things he isn’t familiar with–so he needs a rider who will stay calm. We aren’t certain of his breeding but our best guess is that he has some Standardbred and also some Arabian.
