We have two large horses, Hope and Harney.
Harney is a registered paint, approx… 17 hands. Harney came to us for North Dakota and had suffered a mountain lion attach at age two. He also suffered a serious accident while drawing a carriage. This trauma caused Harney to be unreliable, but with continued training and love and care from visitors and staff, he has responded positively. When you visit, ask Harney to give you a bow.
Hope – Is a standard bred. He came to us in 2016. He had serious health issues and was near death. He was seriously underweight and his systems had collapsed and was unable to absorb nutrients. He had an abscess in his jaw that blew a hole through his flesh. His hoofs were in such bad shape. They were split and cracked so badly that he could hardly stand without pain. We immediately had him vet checked and put him on an anti-biotic needle program every day for three weeks to heal the abscess. Then with the help of an equine nutritionist, we had a special diet formulated to help with the weight loss. He receives this special food two times daily. The farrier trimmed his hoofs every six weeks and now are in great shape. Hope is progressing well and becoming stronger each day. If you ask Hope if he wants a carrot, he will nod his head to say “yes”.
