January 11, 2015: This summer, Happy Trails assisted in the removal of 9 horses and 24 chickens from a hoarding case that also involved 30 dogs, a few cats and 80 parrots. The horses were starved and getting eaten up by flies, the chickens were locked in coops with the cats, the dogs were in small cages in the basement and the parrots were in a shed in cages that had not been cleaned in a long time. After months of fighting in court, these animals have finally been signed over and the horses and chickens are now available for adoption!
Halley is stunning! This girl was a little on the thin side when she was rescued. She is sound and has no health issues. Halley is trained but still needs evaluated under saddle. We believe she would make a great show horse! She is responsive on the ground and is very sweet. She likes to be the boss and is usually in charge of the herd. Halley was named for Halley’s comet, the only one visible from Earth with the naked eye and it only appears once in a lifetime. Halley really is a once in a lifetime horse!
