Amari is a sweet bay Arabian mare who stands 14.2hh and was foaled in approximately 1998-99. She is well broke to ride and is suitable for a child or a small adult for lighter riding. She is a timid mare with other horses and tends to be at the bottom of the pecking order so she needs a home where she will be kept with a kind companion or in her own paddock. She is currently getting grain twice a day and will need this to continue. She is also accustomed to being blanketed in the winter. Sweet mare with a great temperament!
Fritzy does have an adoption pending.
Fritzy is a medium pony gelding who was foaled in approximately 2000. He originally came to MHARF as a yearling and was adopted. He was recently returned because his adopter could sadly no longer keep him. Fritzy has been used for lead line rides but needs further training to be ridden independently. Fritzy (like most ponies) should be kept on a dry lot.
Secret Black is a paint gelding in his late teens who was originally adopted form MHARF in 2009. He is a nice gelding and is well broke to ride. However, he requires a joint supplement and is best suited as a companion horse or for light riding.
Meeka came to MHARF in an August 2019 Stearns County humane case. She was not halter broke and had not had vet or farrier care for a long time (if ever). She was also pregnant. Unfortunately, Meeka’s foal was born prematurely and he did not survive due to complications from Neonatal Maladjustment Syndrome, despite in-hospital veterinary treatment. Meeka was very distressed at first but she is doing better every day. She is doing well with handling and becoming friendlier all the time.
Quinn is a beautiful buckskin gelding (most likely a quarter horse cross) who was foaled in approximately 2006 and who stands 14.3hh. He originally came to us from a 2013 humane case. He was very thin and had been kept in a stall with another horse who had beat him up pretty badly. He had large hematomas and cracked ribs. He had also not had much farrier care (and had possibly been handled roughly while having hooves trimmed) and was terrified of being trimmed. Quinn was adopted as a companion horse but his adopter can no longer keep him so we would like to find him new placement. He has not been assessed for training level although at intake time we were told he was broke to ride. He needs work on ground manners at this time and he needs work to learn to stand for farrier (he still needs to be sedated for trims at this time) because he has basically been a pasture pet and hasn’t been worked with much since being adopted. He does have a sweet temperament and will be a great horse someone who is willing to put time and training into him.
