Lakota Bay (update: Lakota Bay has been adopted!)

Lakota Bay is a 1998 mustang gelding who MHARF originally donated to the equine program at the St. Cloud Children’s home several years ago. The Children’s Home has discontinued the program and Lakota has been returned. He’s a nice, calm horse with good ground manners as long as he is reminded of his boundaries. He has been having some refresher work this summer and would be good for an intermediate rider.  Lakota stands approximately 14.2hh.



Dixie (Update 01/18/18 Dixie has been adopted!)

Dixie is very sweet pinto mare came to MHARF from a Sept. 2016 Stearns County humane case. She was foaled around 1998. She had been locked in a closed up barn with the stallion from the same case (Waylon, who is now a gelding) and was pregnant at intake. She gave birth to a large, healthy bay overo colt, Turtle, on 11/05/16. She did need assistance during foaling so luckily she was in a safe place at the MHARF farm at the time! Turtle has now been weaned and both he and Dixie are available for adoption. We don’t have a training assessment on Dixie yet but will have that done soon.





Willa (Update: Willa has been adopted! )

Willa is a beautiful chestnut mare who was foaled around 2002 and stands approximately 15.2hh. We believe her dam is Korea Norsk, a registered National Showhorse, but we don’t know who her sire was. Willa and Korea Norsk came in together during a July 2016 Crow Wing County humane case in which they were rescued from flood waters. Willa spent the spring and summer of 2017 in training with trainer Beth Ash for our 2017 Trainer’s Challenge of the Unwanted Horse.  Willa and Beth competed successfully in the event on Sept. 16th and Willa is now available for adoption! (You can view Willa and Beth’s 2017 training journey Here!)

Update: As of May 2018 Willa is back in training with trainer Marirose Berner of MJB Horse Training. You can follow Willa’s progress on her Facebook page Here!



Sayonara (Sayonara has been Adopted!)

Sayonara is a bay mare who was born in August of 2016. Her mother, CU Later, was surrendered to MHARF earlier that summer after local law enforcement found her running free down Highway I-35 for the second time.  CU Later is a quarter horse-type mare but we have no idea who Sayonara’s sire is, as the mare’s previous owner was not aware of the pregnancy. Sayonara is a beautiful stock-type mare and is very smart and very sweet. She is also beginning to gray out so we think she will look a lot like her mother! Sayonara is currently in training (ground work) with Anna Hill. You can check out their progress on Sayonara’s Facebook Page.





Sonny is a handsome, solidly built 2008 grade quarter horse gelding who stands 14.3hh. He is a very nice horse and is currently in training with Jamie Moeller who says he is good for trails and arena work. She thinks he would make an excellent 4H horse.  Sonny
