Beetle is a 11 year old bay thoroughbred gelding. He stands approx. 15.3hh. He is a new arrivial. So he will not be ready for adoption yet. We are working on correcting his hooves. He is a very sweet boy. He has been ridden previously, but we will not be assessing him until he is ready. Updates will be posted.

Beetle has been adopted by Shannon and Henry, he now has a familly to call his own!!!

 

 

Bella came to the rescue severely emaciated, a fungal infection on her skin and in foal. She was very scared of humans. She lost her foal. It took a year to bring her back to health. Bella has become a wonderful horse that has brought much joy to a loving family. She now has a caring home to live out the rest of her years.

Owner Update:

Hi Brenda,
Just wanted to let you know that you gave me the greatest gift in Bella. I am so glad that you rescued her, and let our family adopt her. I ended up not renaming her, beautiful just seems to suit her! She is the most wonderful mare, it is like she knows she has been given a second chance at life and she is determined to enjoy it to the fullest!! She is the first at the gate, adores rubs and snuggles, and is so patient when my kids want to brush and snuggle her. She has settled in really well, and is just the most delightful mare. We love her to bits!!!

We have ridden her english and western, and she is very willing to do whatever we ask her. My son is working on teaching her to bow for a carrot, and she loves the time and attention, and especially the carrot!

Thank you again, you are doing such a wonderful thing at your rescue, I wish all the best, Rachel.

ADOPTED! Tall, dark and handsome, Buster, a 10-year-old Shire came to WHHR with some training as a jumper and also as a rodeo bronc. We are confident he will do well with his re-training in the good hands of his new partner. Congratulations, Buster and Kendra.

Candy Cane is a Thoroughbred mare that is being restarted. She had a carreer on the track and then was a brood mare for a few years. She is a really sweet horse that will be available soon. 

CANDY CANE HAS BEEN ADOPTED BY MARIE DEAN AND IS LIVING A LIFE OF LOVE AND LUXERY IN HER NEW HOME, SHE IS A VERY LUCKY HORSE THANKS TO MARIE!

 

Cass is a 16.2hh stunning bay thoroughbred gelding. He is solid! He is broke to ride and will make an amazing dressage, hack or pleasure riding horse!

He has been adopted! Thank you Connie!

Chance came to the rescue absolutely terrified of people. He wouldn't let anyone near him. He had curled hooves, lice and was infected with parasites.

After many hours and weeks of care and patience, Chance has been adopted to a nice family. He has become this strong, curious horse that loves attention.
