Della

Della is a 2008 chestnut Arabian mare who came in from a December 2017 case. She was in foal at intake and gave birth to a chestnut colt on April 29th, 2018. The colt (who has been named 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 did need to stay on stall rest for 30 days–but he is now a feisty and energetic colt and has been weaned.

Della is now available for adoption but only to a very experienced, knowledgeable home. This poor mare has some major ongoing trust issues due to very poor handling in her past. We would like to give her a chance if the right person comes along, but we will be very cautious about placing her for her own safety as well as that of any adopter.

Dollar

Dollar is a chestnut grade Arabian gelding who came to MHARF from a December 2017 case. He was foaled in approximately 2008. Dollar had some lameness issues at intake and after vet and farrier care and rehab time he is doing much better. Dollar has thin soles and requires shoes but other than that he is sound. He is not broke to ride at this time.

Foxy (Student of the 2019 Trainer’s Challenge)

Foxy is a nice bay grade Arabian mare who came in during a December 2017 humane case. She stands 14hh. She was pregnant at intake and gave birth to a healthy bay filly (Faline) on May 5th, 2018. Faline has now been weaned so Foxy is ready to find a new home! She was not broke to ride at intake so she has been placed with trainers Kaitlyn Fedewa and Anna Hill for our 2019 Trainer’s Challenge. She will spend the spring and summer in training and will compete in the Challenge on Sept. 7th. For more information on how to adopt Foxy or any of the other horses at the Trainer’s Challenge, please visit our Adopting a Trainer’s Challenge Horse page!

Nutmeg

Nutmeg is a sorrel grade quarter horse mare who came to MHARF from a December 2017 humane case. She was foaled in approximately 2006. She was in foal at intake and she gave birth to a beautiful filly we named Alice on August 18th, 2018. Nutmeg is an extremely sweet mare and a great mother! We know she is well broke to ride but she has also been diagnosed with navicular disease. She is doing well right now but does require front shoes and is suitable for light trail riding.
