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 very light riding.
Mijo is a bay Arab gelding came to MHARF from a July 2019 Crow Wing County humane case. Luckily he isn’t in terrible condition as far as weight goes, but he was no longer being cared for by his owner and was removed along with many other companion animals. It is estimated that he was foaled in 2000. We don’ t have a training assessment on him yet but hope to soon.
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.
Bill is a 2011 Haflinger gelding who originally came to MHARF in 2014 after having been abandoned in a park reserve. He stands 13 hh. Bill was adopted but has been returned to us. He has a really nice temperament. He has been started under saddle but is still very green and needs training. We would recommend him at this time for an experienced rider. Bill tends to be on the heavier side and needs to be kept off of pasture grass for the most part.
Update: As of July 2019 Bill has gone into training with Anna Hill. You can follow his Facebook page Here!
Sassy is a 14hh Rocky Mountain Horse mare who was foaled in 1992. She is gaited, has a nice temperament and is broke to ride. She is still a little on the thin side so needs to put on a few pounds. She is a smaller mare–so suitable for a smaller adult. She like trail riding and likes to lead.
