Intakes, Training & Evaluations

General information on equines currently at HOMe but not yet available for adoption, as well our permanent residents.

March 15, 2022—They've arrived!

We have just purchased 11 mini horses from the Elkhart Auction.  This is our second buy from an auction and our third buy from the south. Bringing the unwanted, neglected and abused from the south where there are far too many, to the north where there is tremendous demand is working well.

So now we plan—where they are going to live, when to have the vet and farrier come out, and building a training plan for each. All HOME equines rest and recover until they are ready to learn the basic skills to be a valued and appreciated member of their new family.

This group will cost us around $15,000—quarantine and shipping is very expensive. If you want to help us out, we would be so grateful. Every $20, $100, $500 and $1,000 we receive allows us to finally do right by these animals.

And if right now isn’t the time you can make us a donation, please know we appreciate all your support. This is a community of supporters, amazing volunteers and donors who are coming together to help those in need.  Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
