Six New Miniature Horses Have Arrived at HART Rescue

HART received six new miniature horses from a private party in Grants Pass.  If you are interested in adopting one or more of these adorable little fur balls please let me know!

Lilapp (pronounced Lap) was a stallion upon arrival at HART Rescue but we all know how I feel about stallions in my barn!  He has already been castrated and is recovering quite well.  Lilapp was very shy when he got here, would strongly avoid contact and shake with fear when caught.  I have been spending a lot of one on one time with the little bugger and he is warming up to people very quickly.  My niece is had decided to make Lilapp her senior project.  I believe her goal is to train him for in hand trail, in hand jumping, showman and halter, he will then be a very nice, adoptable little guy.

Little black pony with clubbed foot.  This sweet little FURBALL is a kind, gentle gal.  She has a clubbed foot that needs extra trimming to keep in check and severe locking stifles so if she runs around too much she will drag her hind leg for a little while.  This is not a painful condition and does not in any way inhibit her quality of life.

Little Huggy Bear Pony

Huggy Bear has the same sweet personality of the Club Foot pony, she just needs someone to help her out with all that HAIR!!!!

Little Red One

Yeah I know, I'm terrible at coming up with creative names, with time I'm sure I'll come up with something better.  Red is VERY SHY and needs a lot of one on one attention.  She is sweet and willing so I'm sure it wouldn't take much to bring her around.  Yes, I know she is dirty, I took this photo before she received her "welcome to HART" brushing.

Mom and Baby

Mom is a little more refined than the other two black minis, of course since there was an adorable baby in the stall with her to capture all of my attention I didn't get very good photograph of her, sorry about that!  Anyway, Mom is very friendly and gentle, she will make a nice mini for anyone.  Baby is VERY SHY and had very little handling before arriving at HART.  Fortunately, this adorable duo is currently in foster care with a wonderful family that is teaching baby the essentials to be a good little horse.
