Stormy (Brown County Mare #5)

This chestnut mare (her foster home has named her “Stormy”) came to us from a late-April 2018 Brown County humane case. Her estimated age is late teens to early 20’s She is currently in rehabilitation and is gaining some much needed weight. She has been preg-checked and she is not in foal. We have no certain information on her training level at this time and will not be doing an assessment until she is physically ready. We have reason to believe she is a Morgan and we have applied to the AMHA for a DNA test kit. We will have more info on her soon!

Tansy

Tansy (Pine County Donkey #5) is a 2001 standard donkey jennet who came to MHARF during a June 2017 Pine County humane case. This case involved 6 other donkeys, all of whom had not had any veterinary or farrier care for many years.  Because of this neglect, several had hooves so long they could barely walk. Tansy was one of those in the worst condition and still requires specialized farrier care. Tansy is also still has some trust issues but is coming around very well! She is currently still in rehabilitation but we would consider adopting her out to the right home with donkey experience. She is extremely bonded to her friend Atticus who came in during the same case and we prefer they be adopted together.

Oliver

Oliver is a chestnut grade Arabian colt who came to MHARF during a December 2017 humane case. He was foaled in early 2017. He was relatively unhandled at intake but is currently in foster care at Wrisky Ranch where he is learning all about the basics in ground manners like leading, tying, loading, standing for vet and farrier. At time of intake bloodwork indicated that all of the young horses from this intake were suffering from selenium and vitamin e deficiency. Oliver was the worst case and we believe this was what was causing some wobbliness in his hind legs. He is has been under veterinary supervision and has been treated with supplements and good nutrition and he is now doing very well. Oliver has also now been gelded and he would love to find a forever home to continue with his training!

 

Atticus

Atticus (Pine County Donkey #7) is a gelded 2010 standard donkey jack who came to MHARF during a June 2017 Pine County humane case. This case involved 6 other donkeys, all of whom had not had any veterinary or farrier care for many years.  Because of this neglect, several had hooves so long they could barely walk. Being the youngest of the herd, Atticus wasn’t in quite such dire condition. However, he did have severely misshapen hooves and has required specialized farrier care. Atticus still has some trust issues although he has come a very long way since intake! He is still difficult to catch and does require a knowledgeable handler. Atticus is still in rehab but we would consider adopting him out to the right home with donkey experience. He has not been separated from his friend Tansy and they are extremely bonded so we prefer they be adopted together if possible.

TomTom

TomTom is a nice black pony cross who came to MHARF in an August 2017 humane case. He was a malnourished stallion at intake but was gelded and has spent the last several months gaining weight and getting the care he needs. He was born in approximately 2010 and stands 13.2hh. TomTom was not broke to ride and was placed in our 2018 Trainer’s Challenge of the Unwanted Horse with trainer Elizabeth Robins. He was stared under saddle but it was discovered that he had ongoing pain issues in his back. He has been receiving veterinary and chiropractic care but we have determined that he will most likely never be comfortable carrying a rider. He is a nice pony and could possibly make a light driving pony or a good companion. We want to thank Elizabeth for all of her help with TomTom over the summer!
