Tiara Que Si (Lucy)

Donate Breed: Paso Fino; Born 1986; Gender: Mare Sponsorship Status: Sponsor Needed This little lady is a spanish gem.  She epitomizes all great things about Paso Finos with a fiery personality, fabulous gait, and compact size.  Tiara Que Si, or Lucy as she is known in foster came to rescue through a Robertson County neglect seizure.  A bad smell was emanating from a home, and neighbors thought the owner had died—the homeowner was not deceased, but sadly, the home was full of living and deceased cats, urine, and feces.  In the case law enforcement had all animals removed from the property and the owner was court ordered to not own animals again.  The horses in the case all came to Safe Harbor.  The younger horses were adopted out, but in Lucy’s advanced years we decided to have her stay with Safe Harbor to avoid the stress of transitioning again.  Lucy is in a fabulous foster home where she will live for the remainder of her life.  She enjoys the quiet life and lots of brushing and love.  Can you be her sponsor to show her that she is...

Mozart

Mozart

Breed: Mini Horse; Born 2011; Gender: Gelding Sponsorship Status: Fully Sponsored With Love By Marla Smith. Mozart joined Safe Harbor in 2016 during a neglect intake of a large herd of minis.  The herd had owned by a well-meaning individual who was just in over their head.  They did not understand that miniature horses have the same care requirements as large horses, dietary restrictions, hoof care and more.  They did not understand that miniature horses must be trained like full size horses to be good equine citizens.  The result was a herd of a significant size with issues like founder, urinary obstruction and more.  Mozart instantly stood out from the herd.  There was a softness in his eye that we could tell even while scared he wanted love.  We knew he had something a little more to him, and brought him to our training center for recovery. Mozart has thrived. He has a good nature and gets along with all other animals in the training center.  He has gone to churches, schools, the Garden Show and more to teach others about equine welfare.  He is a favorite of visitors to the farm whether they come to volunteer or for therapeutic experiences.  Mozart is in sanctuary with Safe Harbor and will live his whole life in th...

Mandy

Breed: Arabian, Born 1985, Gender: Mare Sponsorship Status: Fully Sponsored with Love by Linda Dudash! Mandy came to Safe Harbor after being over-used in a kids camp environment; ridden with a terrible chain bit and shanks by children with no knowledge of how to ride or how aggressive the bit was.  Mandy had a great deal of anxiety when she first arrived to rescue, but with gentle touch, retraining for slight contact, and very little pressure she has blossomed in her time in rescue.  At 33 years old she still canters daily, and enjoys occasional light riding.  She does love children and participates actively in equine experiential therapy at the barn.  Mandy will live her whole life at the training center, and is a favorite little old...
