Tiny Hearts are the miniature horses and youngsters under 2 years old. We believe size and age DOES matter in the case of special consideration for the care and handling of equines. Small in stature does not diminish their greatness of heart.
Favored Hearts are the horses we are fortunate to be allowed to bring out of killpen as fosters.. We pull the horses most in need first. Horses who are suffering from illness, injury, or low body weight; the ones who come into the lot and immediately start to lose ground, the ones who suffer from herd starvation within the lot. Pulling these horses allows us to give them a better chance of surviving long enough to be adopted.
Guardian’ Hearts are horses who are available for adoption. While they still may be in various stages of recovery, they are trainable, rideable, sound, and sane. These horses come in all shapes, colors, and disciplines, and make amazing partners to share your life with.
Embraceable Hearts are the horses that we post as private sale courtesy listings for friends, or horses in need of new homes that we can help, providing intercept options so they aren’t at risk of going to auction and ending up victims of the slaughter pipeline.
Healing Hearts are our Companion Horses, they may be limited or no longer rideable for various reasons, but these horses can still be partners & friends. Forgiving and social by nature, they have faithful, loyal hearts still willing to love unconditionally and without judgment. These amazing creatures often serve as mutual bridges to companionship and healing in therapeutic settings for children, vets, people with disabilities, anxieties, PTSD and so much more.
These are our fosters or adoptable to the right homes.
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.
