Quinn

Quinn is a beautiful buckskin gelding who was foaled in approximately 2006 and who stands 14.3hh. He originally came to us from a 2013 humane case. We have reason to believe Quinn is an Akhal-Teke x quarter horse cross. He was very thin at intake 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, who is now all healed up, was adopted as a companion horse but as of this past summer his adopter could no longer keep him, so he is back with us .  His foster home/trainers (Michelle and Kaitlyn Fedewa) are currently working on ground work and he is now great at standing for the farrier.  Unfortunately, a recent veterinary evaluation showed us that Quinn has a rare condition of the navicular bones in both front feet. The navicular bones have formed with a fibrous band holding the two halves together rather than a solid piece. Because of this, the vet feels (and we agree) that Quinn should not be asked to work as a riding horse. He is, however, very comfortable as a pasture pet/companion. He is a very sweet horse with a lot of personality and good looks!

Sassy

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.

Patches

Patches is a very nice Tennessee Walking Horse gelding who was foaled in 1999. He stands approximately 15hh. Patches is a nice older gelding who came to MHARF in 2019 because his owner could sadly no longer keep him. He was adopted but it turned out not to be the best match for horse and rider, so he is once again looking for a new home.  He is broke to ride and he does have trail experience but he will do best with a confident rider with gaited horse experience. He has very nice ground manners, is great for vet and farrier, but needs a little more work on loading in trailer.

Titan (Graduate of the 2019 Promise of the Future Competition)

Titan is dun grade quarter horse colt who was foaled in 2018. He came to MHARF from a a late March 2019 Fillmore County humane case. He was still with his mother who was also emaciated. He was weaned and gelded (thank you to the Minnesota Horse Welfare Coalition for sponsoring his surgery!) He was then placed with trainer Deb Anderson for our 2019 Promise of the Future Training Competition, an in-hand training competition for young horses. He competed successfully in that event and is available for adoption. He is a healthy, energetic young gelding.

Cheyenne

Cheyenne is nice older mare came to MHARF recently at request of social services because her elderly owner could no longer care for her. She is blind in one eye. We don’t know yet if she is broke to ride (although it is unlikely) and hope to have a training assessment done on her by spring.
