Sochi is a 2006 POA (Shetland Pony x Appaloosa) mare who stands approximately 13hh. She originally came to MHARF from a February 2014 Wadena County humane case. Sochi was pregnant at intake and her colt Ivan was born in May of 2014. She was adopted but her adopter now regretfully had to return her. Sochi is broke to ride and this past spring has had some refresher training, including a clinic and some trail riding. She is not suitable for a beginner but would be great for a confident youth or small adult. She is also blind in one eye due to an old injury


Jemma (Graduate of the 2019 Trainer’s Challenge)


Jemma is a 14.2hh chestnut  Morgan x quarter horse mare who came to us from a late-April 2018 Brown County humane case. Her estimated date of birth is approximately 2013-2014. She was underweight at intake and badly in need of veterinary care.  Jemma was not broke to ride at intake time so she was placed with trainer Nate Stener for our 2019 Trainer’s Challenge. She spent the spring and summer in training and competed in the Challenge on Sept. 7th, where she and Nate took 3rd Overall Highpoint! We really can’t belive this gorgeous, quiet young mare has not been adopted yet! She has trail experience as well!

Jiminy Cricket

Jiminy Cricket is a chestnut grade Arabian yearling gelding who was foaled on April 29th, 2018. His mother, Della, came to MHARF pregnant during a December 2017 case.  Jiminy Cricket was premature and showed failure to thrive and both mare and foal were admitted to Anoka Equine Veterinary Services so he could receive i.v. fluids and plasma. Bloodwork showed infection so he was also started on antibiotics. Within 48 hours Jiminy Cricket was doing well enough to be released. He needed to stay on stall rest for 30 days. As of June 2019 Jiminy is weaned and gelded. As you can see, he has turned into a well built young horse and he would love to find a new home!
