A Successful Adoption Story 
Prince (now Phoenix) is also also featured in our 2014 calendar as the August horse

Prince is a 7-year-old palomino, Quarter Horse gelding about 15.2 hh. He arrived at WHHR as an unstarted, stallion. While in our care, he was gelded and backed. He was sound and a lovely mover, and because he was so green and very confident, he needed a home with an experienced, confident rider to help him reach his potential.

Prince found just the person he needed when he was adopted in June 2013. His human partner recently sent this update:

Prince Phoenix

Prince has now been home with me for 7 weeks. He has been renamed "Phoenix" which he chose out of long list of names. He was like "Yep! Thats me!" ( We wanted to make sure we honoured his roots and the story of the Phoenix fits where he has been and our rebirth together).

Last Sunday was my birthday and I decided that I wanted to spend it with Phoenix, because honestly, what's better than time with a horse??

Race (along with Victoria) cheerfully went on his way to his new home with Debbie and Mike Wills!

Race is an in your pocket kind of horse, loves people. He is the first to walk up to me in the herd, very curious and friendly. He is a real doll.

Race is about 4 years old, sound and healthy. He is still growing, and about 15hh at this time. Leads, picks up his feet and is ready for a new career!

Up to date of vaccinations, hooves and worming.

Riddle is a 14 yr old Arabian mare. She is 14.2 hh, sound and healthy. Riddle is very friendly and has been trained in hand, lunging and has been ridden. she would make an excellent trail horse and loving pet.

Riddle has been adopted by a caring family in Vineland and is ding great as their first horse!

THANK YOU SHERI AND ANDREW FOR GIVING HER A GREAT HOME!

Rosie was rescued from euthanasia. She was severely emaciated, dehydrated and near death. With many hours of care, she has developed into a beautiful healthy horse.

Rosie has been adopted by a caring, loving family.

Scarlet is a 13 yr old Standardbred mare. She is excellent to ride and would make a great first horse. She is a very quiet mount and has also been worked with in hand and lunging here at the rescue. She is 15hh, sound and healthy waiting for a new loving family.

SCARLET HAS BEEN ADOPTED BY A WONDERFUL COUPLE, THANK YOU TO JEFF AND TIAH FOR GIVING SCARLET A LOVING HOME!

Shanoa (our sweet, pinto pony who is blind in one eye) is on a new journey with her adoptive family. We are very happy to see her go to be loved and pampered. She loaded on the trailer like a champ. Amazing what they can do when they trust.

Congratulations, Tara and family.
