Buddy is a paint gelding who is approximately 13 years old. He’s a big gelding, standing over 16hh and well built. He came in from a recent St. Louis County humane case. Now that he has all of his vet and farrier work done we should be able to get him in for a training assessment soon. He has nice ground manners. We will have better pics soon!
Zip is a nice palomino gelding who is approximately 12 years old and 15.3hh. He came to us from a St. Louis County humane case. He is in decent body condition so we should be able to have a training assessment done on him soon. Watch for updates!
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.
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.
