Thank you so much to Alison for this update on Shilo (formerly known as “Storm”) and for her wonderful testimonial regarding her adoption experience. We are thrilled that Shilo has such a wonderful home and that we were able to help bring the two of them together!
“I adopted Shilo over a year ago from MHARF. It was love at first sight and a journey we would embark on together. At the time, Shilo’s name was Storm. She came through surrender, and our uniting has helped us heal but in very different ways. I am a survivor. My work helps others heal and provides me a platform to help others see their dreams, goals, and person-centered growth to those wanting to be safe. Shilo needed to be safe, and now she is “SAFE” and loved. This dream was only possible because of MHARF and also a personal and dear friend Renne Walker. Renne has a rescue and sanctuary now in Prior Lake, Minnesota.
Alison and Shilo, We love MHARF!!!!!!!!”
Thank you to Paradise Ranch for the photos of some of the adopted MHARF horses who are lucky enough to call this beautiful farm home! Cinnamon the mini mare was adopted in 2020 after she came to us as an owner surrender. She had been turned out with a mini stallion prior to coming in, so we did a preg check and, sure enough, she was in foal. Charlie was born in 2021. Sky came to us from a 2017 humane case. You may remember this pretty mare as “Cherries” (who was our 2019 Trainer’s Challenge Reserve Champion w/ trainer Sarah Lemke and our 2018 Promise of the Future Grand Champion w/ trainer Brenda Boyd). Sky, Cinnamon, and Charlie are all well-loved and enjoy plenty of attention from the lesson kids at the ranch!
This update comes courtesy of Charlotte who wanted to let us know how well Harley (formerly Kristoff) is doing at Welcome Ranch:
“Harley is a big goofball! He is king of the game ‘bite face’ with all of the geldings. He is VERY active and plays a lot. He’s not so sure about his acupuncture treatments, but he sure feels better when they’re done! He tries to “help” so… tools/shovels/tractor/wheelbarrow beware He is spoiled rotten, crazy smart, and a super fun horse. Love, love, love our boy!”
You probably remember Harley from our 2020 Trainer’s Challenge (known then as Kristoff) where he and his trainer Jadyn Mossengren placed in every class, earning them the Reserve Championship!
