Defenders’ Hearts are our success stories. Horses who have already been adopted and are in wonderful, loving homes with their new families. Here you will find the heartwarming stories of their Homecomings, and the futures they so richly deserved.
Pony, 16-17 yrs old, 11 hh, kid friendly and safe, $300.00 This poor gentleman of a pony needs a home for Christmas. Seven years ago this pony was rescued out of a killpen, loved by children who he taught how to ride and have fun. Now he is back in the same killpen he was once rescued out of. He is currently lame in his rear right leg, we dont know why or if it can be treated, but he doesnt deserve to spend Christmas without a family. Listing as a companion, but could likely still ride the small ones around, and would do great with leadline. Most of all he needs a home where he will be taken care of and loved again.

Good with other horses, he is calm on the ground, while having the spirit and carriage you expect from the breed. Advanced beginner/Intermediate rider, this boy has the potential to go any way you want, he knows lungeline, sidepass, W/T/C, Backs. With a little work he could excel in any discipline, endurance, western, english, trail, hunter/jumper, even dressage. Beautiful mover & smooth ride. Registered, his papers are being sent from previous owner and should be available shortly.
Halflinger Mare, 13.3hh, estimated 14-15 yrs old. She is a lovely, sweet, girl, but doesnt ride. She did let us tack her up, tho she was extremely nervous about it & required a great deal of reassurance. Selling as Companion or Project only.
Stella has the unique position in our rescue of being our first donor bailed & sponsored Sanctuary horse (Thank you, Mitzi, for your wonderfully kind & caring heart!! These horses need more Champions like you!! Stella & Guardian Hearts are Blessed to have you on board!)
Stella (formerly Dolly) was rescued from the killpen in Asheboro, NC. Her equinenow ad read "Dolly - Tag#4231(T) Haflinger Mare, 13.3hh, estimated 14-15 yrs old. She is a lovely, sweet, girl, but doesnt ride. She did let us tack her up, tho she was extremely nervous about it & required a great deal of reassurance. Selling as Companion or Project only." A big, beautiful Haffie mare, she was a good girl, but strong, a little pushy, mostly due to anxiety; and while she rode for our volunteer at the lot, it was obvious that she was rusty and needed a complete refresher. It also seemed likely that she had done at least some broodmare duty. With her apparent issues, I wondered how we would find her a home & someone willing to give her the time & work she needed.
... Enter Mitzi ... who saw Dolly's inner beauty, her potential, and her need. She renamed her Stella, which means "Star", and she is fast becoming exactly that ...
After she was bailed and brought into the farm, her transformation was amazing. Looking at the before and after pics, she barely appears to be the same horse (trust us, she is!). Unlike so many that come in, her problems did not stem from lack of nutrition, or starvation, she was borderline obese, most likely due to the misconception that a big horse needs a lot of grain, or possibly simply a high carb sweetfeed. She is likely insulin resistant (possibly borderline or pre-Cushings), but changes in her diet, free movement, good hay, etc. has done her wonders.
We are working with our volunteer farrier (Thank you Rex) to correct her hooves ... long neglected, she has a ways to go. Stella is also the first of our horses to be part of the Hearts for Hooves Program (also thanks to Mitzi). Her sponsor comes regularly, grooms her, loves on her, spoils her with homemade horse treats, and Stella is blooming with the TLC and additional one-on-one care. She has made friends in the pasture (note the picture of her with bff Soldier). With continued care, we believe she can also be refreshed and become a limited riding horse under very light work. Haffie's have an amazing history, they are wonderful partners, versatile and typically have great dispositions. Stella is the perfect example of her breed, despite her past misfortune. She is safe now, and loved ... and we can't wait to see what happens as Stella continues her road to recovery.

Thanks to Alison's bailing her, bringing her to the farm, and giving her immediate care, she has since made a full recovery. She rides English and western, and has the potential for any discipline. She is Registered and comes with her papers (See her Pedigree below). She was adopted out, and had to be returned due to issues with boarding (not Dixie's).

Cricket Tag#315(V) Liver Chestnut QH Mare, 14.2hh. Good ground manners, stood to groom, tack, and mount. Rode well, needs Intermediate Rider. She has all the right moves, just needs miles and some patient understanding. We couldn't get an age on her bc she was very shy & nervous about having her mouth handled, tho she took the bit well as we tacked her up. May need her teeth floated.
Bay Roan POA (Pony of the Americas) Mare, estimated 13.2hh. This pretty little mare is gentle and sweet as they come, she is kids safe, well broke, and has been a camp horse. It doesn't get any better than this, pretty, bold color, & well trained. We don't have an age on her yet, but we have teeth pics for you to estimate. Clean, sound legs, she is still a little thin, she is making a good recovery, is clean thru quarantine and only needs a Coggins and vaccines. She is getting lots of TLC and groceries, but needs her own special child to love.
Bay BLM Mustang Mare, Freeze branded no title, $800.00. We haven't researched her brand or aged her, tho we have teeth pics for you to use. I'd guess by galvayne's groove alone that she is early-mid teens, but that is a rough guesstimate only. This sweet guy is a wonderful all around horse, ridden english, western, bareback in a halter, no nonsense, sane & sound. She isn't bothered by cars, golf carts, dogs, geese, sheep, llamas, emus, etc. We put our resident pony whisperer on her and let her climb all over her, ride her up and down the farm, and she has been smooth, gentle & calm. Tested kid friendly, no buck, rear, bite, kick, we haven't found a vice. Gets along in the herd no matter where we put her. Rides sound, clean legs, stocky classic mustang build. Her feet, like so many that come out of the killpens & feedlots need work, but we have started corrections with our volunteer farrier (Thank you Rex).
Chestnut Grade QH Mare, early teens, est. 14.2hh, Beginner, $650.00. We don't know much about this mare yet, we found her one evening when we picked up at the lot, shivering in a cold rain and were lucky enough to bring her in with the other horse we went to pick up. She is doing better, gaining weight (every time we look at that belly, we wonder if she MAY be in foal). We haven't done more than a cursory evaluation. So far she is sweet, personable, and willing to meet you and be handled, but we haven't attempted to ride her. Her teeth say she is early teens.
BLM Freezebranded Red Roan Mustang Mare, 14.3hh, 5-6 yr old, $1250. This flashy girl with the blonder than Barbie mane & tail, came out of the killpen in Asheboro, NC from an auction in TN. And she may toss that blond hair, but there is a good brain beneath it. She doesnt have a title, but she has the freezebrand. Vet checked her teeth to verify 5-6 years of age, and tho she could use a few extra pounds, she is in good shape otherwise. She is gentle, well mannered, leads well, good in the herd tho upper level with the two geldings she is currently pastured with. She stood in crossties, was well behaved for the farrier to trim, she's barefoot with no issues. She seems to have some groundwork training, but we aren't sure if she is saddlebroke or not yet. Sweet & willing, she's sound and seems to have a good head on her shoulders.
*Percheron Cross Gelding, 15hh, mid teens. This big stout fellow rides advanced beginner & drives better than he rides. Dropped off locally at the Asheboro NC Killpen with Emmett, they were a team. Supposedly they had some time off, about 2 years or so, but he is a well seasoned horse and fell right back into the groove. A gentle giant, he is a strong guy, and while he rides easy & well at walk/trot/canter, has a sweet little trot & canter, but he turns slow and needs someone who can give him direction & cues. This is a guy would happily follow along in a group on trails, and walk all day. Or harness up & hitch to a wagon with a team and roll along with good will. We haven't tried to drive him as we don't have the equipment. Sound & sane, no vices that we have seen, no kick, bite, rear, bolt, or buck. He's been in with all sorts of horses, ducks, geese, sheep, dogs. Still owned by the killpen, we have fostered him in quarantine over 30 days now, so he comes clean, ready to go, and de-wormed. We're told he doesn't have a Coggins, and he still needs his vaccines, adoptive owner can make arrangements to have him vetted prior to taking him home.
Bay Thoroughbred Cross Sporthorse, Gelding, 16+hands, 10 yrs old, $1000.00. Big, bold & beautiful. We have no idea of his history as he was rescued out of the killpen in Asheboro NC as a stallionback in the end of August 2018. Gelded 9-1-2018, he is clean thru quarantine, UTD on his vaccines etc with a clean Coggins, this boy is ready to go. We've started him with some natural horsemanship training, and he is learning being stalled, about the barn, leading, etc. He is pasture sour at times, and has moments of anxiety once he leaves whatever pasture he is coming out of, but he is willing, tries hard to please, and truly does well with some reassurance. He has a lot to learn and a long way to go, but will make a wonderful sporthorse and more, dressage/jumping/eventing/trail the sky should be the limit for someone willing to put the time and effort into his training.
This adorable little black jack is ready to be weaned & head to a family of his own. He has the longest legs imaginable, already nearly as tall as his Momma, he is going to be a beautiful boy. And if his ears end up matching his Momma's his looks will be pricelss. Price $150.00
Mini Spotted Jack donkey, coming 4 year old, 34-35", $350.
Bay Thoroughbred Mare,15.3hh, 12 yrs old, Adv. Beginner, $2000.00. Rescued several months ago out of a killpen in Pennsylvania, she is clean, healthy and ready for her special someone. We dont know what her history is, but we do know she has quite a story to tell if she could tell it. She may come in a plain brown wrapper, but this beautiful & versatile mare has it all, she definitely has training in flatwork and likely over low jumps, she does walk, trot, canter, transitions, etc, she has the potential to go any way you would like to finish her. On sound, tight legs, with a sensible calm mind, she is the kind of horse you can do anything with.

Palomino Gelding (Grade QH Type), 14.3hh, estimated early teens, $500. Super sweet gelding is blind in both eyes, rescued out of a killpen in NC. He rides beautifully, altho we did only lead him, he accepted the tack and rider willingly, walked off fine, & did a super job!! He is certainly rideable enough for leadline for grandkids, and with a bond of trust I imagine you could ride him around the pasture and maybe more.
Chocolate Rocky Mountain, coming 3 yr old, 13.2hh, Halter broke Project, $550. Gorgeous filly needs an experienced home, coming 3 year old she is ready to start under saddle. As versatile as any other Rocky Mountain, she will be well worth the effort to train & finish any direction you want to go. Rescued from a local NC killpen, she is thru quarantine, clean, with UTD Coggins, de-wormed and vaccines. When she got here, she could barely be handled. She is halter broke, and getting used to being handled now. We've started her with some natural horsemanship training, and she is learning being stalled, about the barn, leading, etc. She has a lot to learn and a long way to go, but will make a wonderful trail horse and more, for someone willing to put the time and effort into her training.

Bay BLM Mustang Gelding, 14hh, 8-10 yrs old, Adv Beg, $550. Freeze branded no title
Flashy Bay Quarter Pony, tons of Chrome, Roper, Jr Rodeo, 13.2hh, $1250.00. This gorgeous little guy supposedly has a bunch of training as a fancy show pony, but an issue with bucking unexpectedly. He came directly out of the killpen in Asheboro, NC and we brought him in as a foster to try to buy him some time. We have a trainer coming to work with him, but we also decided to post him up as available if someone wanted to tackle his issue themselves. As he is trained, his price will reflect.
**UPDATE**After some hours in the arena, it turns out that Bammer is a nifty little Jr Rodeo Pony, he ropes beautifully, will pull, drag, and understands rope tension, we haven't tried poles or barrels with him, but no doubt he has done some of that also. He's good with the littlest ones for leadline, moves right out with the bigger kids. We don't know why they said he had a problem, he hasn't done anything wrong or put a foot out of place (much less a buck) since we started working him. Walk/trot/canter, nice responses, good handle. Clean sound legs, sane head, Bammer is lower end of the herd he is with (mixed mares/geldings, with both full size horses and several ponies), he's been pastured with llamas, sheep, geese, swans, ducks, isnt bothered by dogs, ponies behind the golf cart, all round good fellow so far. Sometimes I just think "the stories they could tell" bc I am certain Bammer has a lollapalooza of a tale!! Check out his videos & see what he can do...
Named after Kitty Wells 1919-2012

Standard Jenny Donkey, 40-46", grey dun, halter broke, young, rehoming fee $400.
Jack Sprat Tag#360(V) Chestnut QH Gelding, 15hh, estimated age 11 years old, Beginner, $675.00. This boy is sweet, and savvy. He stood tied, to groom, tack, mount, and rode very well. He needs TLC and lots of groceries. He wasnt bothered by other horses, dogs, cats, etc. He's been ponied with golf carts, he falls mid bottom of the herd and has been pastured with mares, geldings, minis, ducks, geese, swans, rheas, emus, sheep and llamas without issue. We expect he has trail experience. He knows the routine of grazing loose around camp without wandering off, too. We've ridden him Western, English, and I listd him as a project bc I believe he could turn to almost anything you choose from playday, 4H, Pony club, Jr Rodeo, jumping, etc. He may not know how, but he could certainly learn and I believe will learn quickly. We've had absolute beginners on him, from 11 yr olds who have never been on a horse and find themselves able to do walk/trot/canter on him in the arena, to husbands who have only been on one trail ride, and just want to mosey along at the walk. We havent hacked him out on a trail, but he should do fine, he is just that sort of horse. He may be the "plain package" but he is the epitome of "never judge a book by its cover".
SAFE!! Thanks to a generous donor out of CO, this boy is headed home with a lady who was fundraising him. Thank you all so much for giving this boy a second chance and a much deserved retirement in safety!!

Mambo*Titled, Freezebranded BLM Mustang, Bay, Gelding, 15hh, $1500, Green broke-in training, Advanced Rider/Experienced Handler required. This gorgeous, flashy gelding is a rescue we bailed from a killpen in TN. We don't know how they got their information or riding video, but he is a bit less the calm gentle trail prospect that he was touted to be (it happens, we are still glad we got him). He has all the majestic beauty & regal bearing one loves and admires in these national treasures, and he has a good brain, is sound, and will be able to go any direction, he just needs experience, patience, and to gain trust, to be finished any way you want. We have him in training, with natural horsemanship, and his price will reflect his progress as that continues. He trailers well, gets along with in the pasture (mixed herd, mares, geldings, and llamas), leads, tacks up English or Western, lunges, and he will ride walk/trot once he is worked through to a certain point. He needs continued desensitization, groundwork, and time under saddle. This is one horse that will be worth the time and effort.

Jimmy is one HUGE guy ... at 18.2+hh, his head alone simply dwarfs you, but he is a gentle giant. He is strong (and doesn't always know his own strength) so he can be a bit pushy at times. He has the most adorable and amazing tiny mustache (see pic) it just makes you have to smile!! He was ridden around bareback and he rides confident advanced beginner, and needs a strong hand, but we couldn't do a full riding evaluation bc we simply don't have the tack to fit him. He came right over to the gate to see me, and definitely enjoyed having his chin and some other prime spots scratched, so I have a feeling he will be one to spoil with scratches and grooming (his size makes that a full time job LoL). Amish trained to drive also, tho we have neither the equipment or the skills to put that to the test. He is supposed to be early to mid teens. This boy doesn't have a coggins. But he seems healthy and while he is a little thin, is still in reasonably good weight . He definitely needs off the killpen lot asap tho, as these big guys never do well there.
