Breezie

Breezie

Breezie came to MVHR back in 2012 when her previous owner just didn’t want her anymore, and refused to buy more hay for her.  Sensitive and responsive, this special mare seems to have taken to heart tough treatment in her past, and at times struggles with overcoming her fears and worries, and so has had a hard time finding a new person of her own.  Well broke and lovely to ride she will be...

South Dakota Mustangs

Well, they made it! With the support of a number of generous donors who helped sponsor the transportation, MVHR was able to offer space to 4 of the mustangs from Lantry, South Dakota.  After quite a journey through snow storms and icy roads to get here, the four beautiful mares arrived December 9, 2016.  Unhandled, they will be quite a project to even get our hands on, let alone halters!  Stay...

Jackie

Jackie

Update 5/9/16: MVHR bought Jackie at auction in May of 2014 to keep her from slaughter. Emaciated and with only one eye, she was the poster child for rescue. In spite of her own terrible condition, Jackie was a steadfast friend to her corral mate Rosie, who was emaciated and also terrified. Turns our Rosie was pregnant, and gave birth to a colt just weeks after being kept from slaughter. Jackie...

Sparky

Sparky

Update 4/9/16: This little cutie came to MVHR desperately in need of hoof care. Just 3 years old, it is likely he had never had his feet trimmed – and they looked like elf slippers (or bananas as one child said). Barely able to walk, MVHR rushed to get Dr. Silvia Stocker and farrier Gary Hoza to come help. And help they did – with sedation so Sparky could rest comfortably throughout the...
