Lila is 35″ miniature mare who came in during the summer of 2016 her 3 month old colt.  Happily her vet and farrier check ups found no evidence of founder like we first thought–just hooves badly overdue for a trim. Her foal, Sparky, has recently been weaned and adopted and now Lila is also ready to find a new home!

CU Later (Graduate of the 2017 Trainer’s Challenge)

Update: CU Later has been adopted! Congratulations to CU Later and Marirose Berner for being our 2017 Trainer’s Challenge 3rd Overall High Point Winners!

CU Later is a dapple gray stock-type mare who came to MHARF after she was found running down Highway 35W by law enforcement (for the second time this spring).  Her owner surrendered her to MHARF at the request of law-enforcement. She is approximately 5 years old and stands approximately 15hh.  During her intake vet exam we discovered she was in foal. In August of 2016 CU Later gave birth to a beautiful filly named Sayonara! Sayonara has now been weaned and is available for adoption.  CU Later will be competing in our 2017 Trainer’s Challenge of the Unwanted Horse with trainer Marirose Berner. She will be available for adoption on the day of the Challenge (September 16th) by silent auction to pre-approved bidders. If you would like more information on being pre-approved to bid and adopt please see Adopting a Trainer’s Challenge Horse.

Bad Lass (Bad Lass has been adopted!)

Bad Lass is a paint mare who came in  during the spring of 2016 from a Pine County humane case along with her colt, Deacon (who was weaned and adopted). She was foaled in approximately 2006. At intake Lass had an umbilical hernia in need of surgical repair. The surgery, the cost of which was generously sponsored by Judy Welch Blue in memory of Bob and Holly Welch (both long-time friends and supporters of MHARF), was completed and she has fully recovered.  Lass was adopted but it ended up not being the right match so she has come back to us. She is broke to ride and is currently in training with Marirose Berner. You can follow Lass’s facebook page Here! Contrary to her name, Bad Lass is a very nice mare!



Ole is a very nice sorrel quarter horse gelding who was foaled in 2011 after his mother, Lena, came into MHARF from a humane case. Ole, who stands 15.3hh, was adopted but has sadly been returned because of a death in his adoptive family.  He is green broke to ride and has been ridden in snaffle bit only.

Norman is a 2007 15hh Paint gelding with blue eyes. He’s a very nice, mellow horse with good ground manners. Norman is broke to ride but is still relatively green and does need an advanced rider or continued time with a trainer.
