Jiminy Cricket is a chestnut grade Arabian yearling gelding 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. As of June 2019 Jiminy is weaned and gelded. As you can see, he has turned into a well built young horse and he would love to find a new home! Jiminy has now been placed with trainer Courtney Stanek for our 2020 Promise of the Future in-hand training competition for young horses. He will spend the summer in training with Courtney learning all about how to be a good citizen from the ground. He will then compete at the event in September and be available for adoption.
