Sochi

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!

Delia (Potential Candidate for the 2019 Trainer’s Challenge)

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.

Jemma (Potential Candidate for the 2019 Trainer’s Challenge)

 

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).

Isabeau (Potential Candidate for the 2019 Trainer’s Challenge)

Isabeau 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 year in our rehab program but is now at a good weight and is available for adoption. She is not broke to ride.

Jiminy Cricket (Potential Candidate for the 2019 Promise of the Future Competition)

Jiminy Cricket is a chestnut grade Arabian colt who was foaled on April 29th, 2018. His mother, Della, came to MHARF pregnant during a December 2017 case.  Jiminy Cricket was premature and showed failure to thrive and both mare and foal were admitted to Anoka Equine Veterinary Services so he could receive i.v. fluids and plasma. Bloodwork showed infection so he was also started on antibiotics. Within 48 hours Jiminy Cricket was doing well enough to be released. He needed to stay on stall rest for 30 days. Jiminy is now a healthy, feisty and energetic colt!
