Adopted horses

We work hard to find forever homes for our horses that are up for adoption. This is a list of the horses we have loved and nurtured until we found them good homes! They are our success stories.

Smokey, Rain, Cisco

Thelma &

Louise

These two best friends came to use in 2019. Louise is a 11-year-old mule and Thelma is a 4-year-old miniature horse.  Thelma is bossy and Louise is shy. They both had a rough start in life but they are now living their best life together! Their fun personalities have led them to become our ambassadors. They love being in the spotlight and engaging with the community.
