Helen is a donkey jennet who was foaled in approximately 2005. She came to us with her young foal, Wait, in desperate need of farrier care and proper nutrition. She has put on weight and she has regained soundness due to careful care and hoof trimming. She will need this to continue in order to remain sound. This lovely girl is now available for adoption to the right home.

Hans update: Hans has been adopted!

Update: Hans has been adopted! Hans is a chestnut National Show Horse (Arab x Saddlebred) gelding who was foaled in November of 2011. He stands approximately 15.2 hands He has not been started yet but has nice manners and is sweet and friendly.

Eddy (Update: eddy has been adopted!)

Eddy is a black/bay off the track thoroughbred gelding (racing name Judges Shoes) who was foaled in1998 and stands 16.3hh. Eddy was only raced twice as a 2 year old and was found to be much too laid back for that career. He started his reschooling in 2004 and was used as a jumper. Eddy had not been ridden in approximately 8 years but was very good for a recent assessment. He is very responsive to leg cues. Eddy has had good care throughout his life. He comes to us from a caring owner who can no longer keep him. Eddy recently spent time in training at Wrisky Ranch in Prescott, WI. We have discovered that he has some arthritis, most likely due to his time on the track, so he is not suitable for heavy work.

Daybreaks Abbey Road (Abbey has been adopted!)

Daybreaks Abbey Road is a very nice registered chestnut American Saddlebred mare who was foaled in 2006. Abbey originally came to MHARF from a 2011 Pine County humane case. In July of 2011 she gave birth to a beautiful filly who we named Penny Lane (who was adopted upon weaning).  Daybreaks Abbey Road is a very pretty chestnut mare with an athletic build and a nice temperament . She is very friendly and extremely interested in people. Abbey was started under saddle several years ago but had some time off. She is now back in training with Anna Hill and we have high hopes of finding her a home soon! You can follow Abbey’s training on her Facebook Page!
