Raspberry is an 8 year old, silver bay mare, approximately 32” tall. She was rescued off of a slaughter truck in Pennsylvania by a Good Samaritan as a very sick horse who we were told was possibly pregnant and very unruly. She found her way to CMHR in October 2013, where she saw the vet right away and was brought up to speed on all her medical work, including pregnancy tests which showed she was not bred. We have no idea what has happened to Raspberry in her past life, but she has issues. Our foster home reported to us that she acted like she has never been handled and hates to be touched. She is aggressive towards people and she kicks. However Raspberry is very smart and is catching on quickly. She is being worked with daily and is learning all her basics including lunging, and ground driving. For the short time she has been in CMHR, she has certainly come a very long way. We will only adopt Raspberry to an experienced horse person who has the time and patience to continue working with her. Needless to say, Raspberry is not a horse that should be around children. Raspberry requires a dosage of tranquilizer for the farrier to trim her feet and she has a clean bill of health. Raspberry is located in East Hampton, Connecticut. Adoption fee: $350.00

Midnight is a 17 year old black mare. CMHR was contacted in regards to this mare who was pregnant and tied to a tree in Texas who required an immediate rescue. We hired a vet to go to the location and take a coggins test and health paper to enable her to travel across the border to Oklahoma to foster care. However, the vet refused to release her to us because she was not stable and her feet were too sore for her to travel. We continued to work with the vet who sent a farrier out there for us to trim her feet and get her stabilized enough so she could finally be moved. Midnight was unable to carry her foal to term and lost it in the fall. She is now ready for adoption and is in very good health. Midnight is a little doll. However she does have touch of laminitis which requires a bit of bute sometimes if she seems uncomfortable, but for the most part she bucks and plays with the other horses. She is a very loving little girl who is very well mannered and craves attention. She stands nicely for brushing, feet trims, clipping, fly spray and doesn’t even mind dogs running all around her. She is located in Durant, Oklahoma. Adoption fee: $350.00

Dusty is a 28" black gelding who we think is in his middle 20's. As soon as his teeth are floated, we will be able to give you a better idea of his actual age. Dusty was part of a herd of 80+ horses who all suffered gross neglect for years. He came into CMHR and was adopted and was living the good life until his owner became too ill to take care of him. Dusty is blind in one eye but handles it very well. He is having fun being groomed and led around by a little girl so apparently he likes kids. CMHR brought Dusty up to date on all his vaccinations, coggins, farrier, de-worming and is ready to go to his new forever home. He is located in Joshua, Texas.

Billy is 35” tall, dark bay, and 10 years old. If you are looking for a character with personality plus and over the top enthusiasm, Billy is your horse. Billy is every bit a people horse who wants to be in the middle of the action all the time. He insists on being with people, especially kids. He is crazy about kids and is always waiting for someone to come out and play. Billy doesn’t have a mean bone in his body and is perfect for someone who has a sense of humor. He is a powerhouse and a little pushy so a small child couldn’t lead him around, but an older child who is used to handling a horse could. Billy is an example of a horse who needs a job to stay busy. He can be trained to do just about anything you want and he does want to do everything! He is up to date on vaccinations, coggins test, and farrier work. He is located in Oostburg, Wisconsin.

Sonny is a 15 year old sorrel gelding who is 31" tall. Although he is short in height, he makes up for it in width as he is a very muscular little guy. Sonny is as cute as a button with a personality to match. Sonny is the thinker and takes things in stride and usually goes with the flow. He likes kids, and stands nicely for grooming, but he might rear on occasion to avoid doing something he might not want to do, but that issue is being worked on. He is submissive and easily changes his mind to be a good boy if he thinks he’s in trouble. He is a nice all around family horse. Sonny is up to date on vaccinations, coggins test, and farrier work. He is located in Oostburg, Wisconsin. Adoption fee: $350.00 - FEE IN FEBRUARY REDUCED TO $200.00 **ask about other incentives offered to aid in finding Sonny a forever home**
P.S. - Although not neccessary, Billy and Sonny would LOVE to find a home where they could stay together

Harvey Update: January, 2014
Harvey has come a very long way in a short time and he has been gelded. He had his teeth done and his feet are coming along very nicely. He has no problem trotting or running around and he is not limping. He has the mechanics and movement to become a nice driving horse. Harvey has turned into the sweetest boy and is very friendly and kind and wants to follow you everywhere. He doesn’t mind being handled a bit and enjoys time spent with him but can be spooky on occasion. He continues to put on weight slowly. His back bone and hip bone still protrude so he has a ways to go yet to reach his full weight. Harvey has some spirit to him, but in a kind way. He will make a wonderful equine friend for someone with a little previous equine experience. He is up to date on vaccinations, coggins test, and farrier work. He is located in Emmett, Michigan. Adoption fee: $350.00
