Thank you to Abby for this update on Turtle. Abby adopted Turtle after he won our 2020 MHARF Trainer’s Challenge (w/ Nate Stener) and it looks like it was a great match!
Today is Turtle’s 4th birthday (Nov. 5th). He is doing great and is super friendly. He likes to follow people everywhere and loves the attention. Turtle and I are taking Parelli lessons with Anna Hill and going on trail rides. Turtle has a girlfriend, Kita, who is formerly known as Wakita (also adopted from MHARF). They enjoy long strolls through the field together.

Thank you so much to Kristina for these pics of Raspberry! Raspberry is an orphan Boer goat who was originally rescued when she was just a few days old by Jennifer, who knew she was sick and needed help even though she wouldn’t be able to keep her. Jennifer took her to the vet where she was diagnosed with pneumonia. Knowing that this baby goat needed to go to someone with “goat experience”, Jennifer contacted us for help. Kristina had recently contacted us looking for a companion for her older nanny goat. We knew she didn’t want a youngster (much less a 3-day-old bottle baby w/ pneumonia), but we thought just maybe we could talk her into it. Once Kristina saw how tiny and helpless Raspberry was, she knew she had to help! Both women drove a long distance to meet up so Raspberry could be transferred to her new home. It was touch and go for awhile for this little girl, but with the care of Kristina and her family, Raspberry was soon thriving! We have been receiving photos and videos ever since. Now they just need to convince Raspberry that she is a goat and not a house dog…

Thank you to Emily for this update on Eowyn (formerly Electra). This pretty Arabian mare came to MHARF from a 2017 St. Louis County humane case and competed in our 2018 Trainer’s Challenge with trainer Natalie Linders. Emily has been great about sending us regular updates and we really love to receive them!
“She’s so darn smart. If I know there’s going to be a loud noise or engine or even when she was getting her teeth floated, all I have to say is “noise” and she prepares herself. She will touch her nose to my open palm when I say “hand,” which is great for bending and flexing. She also knows stand, wait, back, walk/trot/canter, turn, naughty (lol), and a few others she’s starting to understand. I have no interest in dressage or any sort of showing or eventing, so I have really made verbal cues a part of our relationship. We also use only a halter and reins, no bridle. She loves my disabled son, Finn, and is incredibly gentle with him. They like to play with a giant ball. Finn is very proud of his ‘AO’.”

Thank you to Macy for this update on her adopted mare Raine (formerly known as Amber). What a perfect team!
“I just wanted to send a quick update on Raine (Formerly known as Amber) who I adopted a little over 3 years ago! Over the three years, our relationship has grown immensely and it is amazing to see how much more confident she has become. She truly is my heart horse and I trust her with my life.
We also had a lot of fun this summer. We went on lots of trail rides, participated in a Parelli cow clinic, and trailered over to our local state park a few times. She was amazing with the cows and acted like a natural! She had a lot of fun pushing the cows around and was extremely confident. We are hoping to trailer over to our local state park more this fall once all the bugs are gone. She is an amazing horse and worth her weight in gold!
Thank you again for allowing me to adopt her, I am lucky to have her as my partner!
I attached a few pictures of our adventures.”

Thank you to Kylie for this update on King of Spots! She says the “crabby old grandpa” is still the “love of her life”.. He’s retired from riding now due to his advanced age but he still loves getting lots of attention. King of Spots is a Saddlebred gelding who came to MHARF from a 2011 Anoka County humane case. He competed in our 2012 trainer’s Challenge with trainer Colleen Carter and then found his forever home with Kylie.
