HOME Haven is a part of our rescue that provides long term sanctuary to minis that will have a harder time finding their forever future. This part of HOME was started in honor of HOME’s dear friend Caren McMillen. Caren was the heartbeat of this organization. She spent many hours a week helping get the facility ready and safe for these little equines. When Caren wasn’t replacing fencing and helping to prep the farm, she was building our website, designing HOME’s logo and doing all the online presence for this organization. To know Caren is to know laughter and joy. When we say she was the heartbeat of this organization, we mean this literally. HOME Haven was started in her honor and is a program to sponsor our mini equines that are unlikely to find a forever home and will stay in our sanctuary program for the rest of their lives. Right now, we have 7 animals in this program. All of these animals have some kind of health issue making them unlikely to be adopted. For example, two are blind, one has allergies to everything except Orchard grass and another has shoulder pain that requires medications and body therapy.
When you sponsor one of these animals for $25.00 each month, you will receive a cute plush mini horse and a picture of the horse you are sponsoring. This pays for this equine’s monthly grain and vitamins.
When you sponsor one of these animals for $50.00 each month, you will receive a cute plush mini horse, a picture of the animal you are sponsoring, and a HOME T-Shirt. This will pay for farrier or hay for this equine for a month.
When you sponsor one of these animals for $100 each month, you will receive a cute plush mini horse, a picture of the animal you are sponsoring, a HOME T-Shirt, and a HOME mug. This will pay for both hay and farrier for your sponsored mini for a month.
Napoleon was an 8 year old owner surrender in January 2022 who came to us with a lot of “unknowns”. We did an allergy test and discovered he is allergic to just about everything EXCEPT his hay! Despite his jealous looks at his pasture mates enjoying their grain, he truly is loving life on the farm. He is bonded to Juniper, and he makes sure to let her know he’s still there during her training sessions.
Spitfire is a 21 year old mini who came to us in July 2021 blind in both eyes. He has taken everything in stride since coming to the barn and is bonded closely with HOME Ambassador Merrylegs. They are best buds and she is his “eyes” for getting around their paddock. Because of his special situation, he is a permanent resident of HOME.

These two girls came to us in their 20s in extremely rough shape. They were abandoned in a field for approximately 15 years, fending for themselves with no care or attention. Fortunately, they’ve had each other through it all. They were a local intake and while we specialize in taking in mini equines, the desperation of their situation caused us to welcome them into the HOME family immediately. They have made so much progress from the feral state they came in, with still some work to be done. Due to their age and the medical attention still needed, they will be staying on the farm.
