Star is a gorgeous Morgan mare that came to Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary very emaciated 2 years ago. She is very healthy, happy and sound now at the estimated age of around 20 and has a stocky build and stands 14.3H. Star gets along with other horses and does well in her stall. She is broke to ride and a blast to ride around on. We feel Star is best fit for a confident beginner or intermediate rider because she does still have some prance in her step and can be a bit “looky” although, she rarely spooks. She stands well in the cross ties and to be saddled. She lowers her head for the bridal and is overall easy going. Star is an easy keeper and has good ground manners as well. Star is up to date on farrier, vet, and dental work. She is looking for her forever home to bond with and love her. Please fill out an adoption application at happytrailsfarm.org/adopt-an-animal/ if you are interested. Her adoption fee is $500. ... See MoreSee Less
May I add that our Amish horses make such amazing friends and companions for the right family. This girl is such a sweetheart and deserves the best forever home. She has worked hard and now she needs to enjoy life a bit. Cmon, we know you’re out there.
It kind of looks like her spine is sagging a little. That may be from for than being 20. I am not a fan of riding horses myself. Some more recent study has shown that it is not very good for them, a spine that long shouldn't be bearing a lot of weight right in the middle.
Hope this pretty girl find a loving and kind home.
Dakota is looking for his special foster or adopter. This handsome gelding is in his early 20's and would make a great pasture pal. He is almost totally blind, but don't let this steer you away from him, he is very gentle and does well out in the pasture with others and in his stall. He has not been ridden while at the sanctuary, but we have had a saddle on him and worked with desensitizing to give him a job. Please fill out an adoption application at: happytrailsfarm.org/adopt-an-animal/ and return to email@example.com ... See MoreSee Less
We are hoping to have a huge turn out of Happy Trails supporters at the Chipotle located at 429 E. Main St. in Kent on November 20th from 4-8. Chipotle will donate 33% of all proceeds if you show the flyer, show it on your phone, or mention you are a Happy Trails supporter! Cold temperatures bring higher expenses to the sanctuary and this is an easy way for you to help us. Bring your friends, sit down and have some delicious food. Don't forget to try the vegan sofritas! ... See MoreSee Less
Wilby wants to thank his friends Kori and Julianna from Hudson High School. Each semester we have two students who volunteer at Happy Trails doing various tasks. Towards the end of the semester, the students complete a project. The girls have been busy creating some custom grave markers for Heaven's Trail Cemetery. Everyone appreciates all the hard work that is going into this project. Thank you! #WilbycrushWednesday ... See MoreSee Less
We are in awe from all of the supporters we have. Most of what we need for the upcoming winter has been sponsored! One item that is still high on our list is another 1500 watt de-icer for the horse troughs. These keep the troughs in the pasture from freezing so the horses can have fresh water to drink when out. This item has free shipping and don't forget to use AmazonSmile 🙂
