Sochi is a 2006 POA (Shetland Pony x Appaloosa) mare who stands approximately 13hh. She originally came to MHARF from a February 2014 Wadena County humane case. Sochi was pregnant at intake and her colt Ivan was born in May of 2014. She was adopted but her adopter now regretfully had to return her. Sochi is broke to ride but she has not been ridden much recently and needs some refresher training. She is also blind in one eye due to an old injury. We will have more info posted on Sochi when we have her training level assessed!
This chestnut mare came to us from a late-April 2018 Brown County humane case. Her estimated age is early to mid-teens and she stands approximately 14.2hh. We have DNA confirmation from the Canadian Morgan Horse Association (thank you to the American Morgan Horse Association for their assistance on this!) that she is a purebred Morgan. Her sire is Sable Knight Kursier and her dam is Krila’s Eagle Feather. This mare is not registered but she is registerable. All of her vet work has been completed, including dental and preg-check (not in foal). She is now at a decent weight and is ready to find a new home! She’s very pretty and a nice mover. Temperament-wise she is a little on the hotter side but is smart and willing. She is not broke to ride.
This chestnut mare (named Jemma by her foster home) came to us from a late-April 2018 Brown County humane case. Her estimated age is 5-7 years. She was underweight at intake and badly in need of veterinary care. She has been preg-checked and is not in foal. We have not done a training assessment yet but we don’t think she has had any under saddle training. We don’t know her breeding but we believe she is a Morgan cross (most likely with quarter horse).
Isabel is a uniquely colored palomino mare who came to us from a late-April 2018 Brown County humane case. DNA results from the American Morgan Horse Association have proven that she is MEMC American Idol and was foaled in 2005. She has had all of her veterinary work completed, including dental work and preg-check (she is not in foal). Her dental exam showed she had many sharp points and hooks and it appeared that she had not any dental care for many years. She has spent the summer in our rehab program but is now at a good weight and is available for adoption. She is not broke to ride. (Thank you to Sydney Jordan Photography for the June 2018 updated pics!)
Banner is a 2003 15hh black and white pinto gelding who was originally born at MHARF after his pregnant mother, Kite, came in from a large 2002 Pine County humane case. Banner was adopted as a youngster but was never started under saddle. He has now been returned because his original adopter could no longer keep him. He is currently a student of our 2018 Trainer’s Challenge of the Unwanted Horse with trainer Thomas Smittle. Because Banner is spending the spring and summer in training and will compete in the Challenge on September 22nd, he will not be available for adoption until that date. If you would like more information on becoming pre-approved to adopt banner at the Challenge on 09/22/18 please see Adopting a Trainer’s Challenge Horse.
