Hi everyone,

Over the next couple of weeks, we're going to be posting the stores of the individual equines at MHR&S. Hope you'll enjoy them and find them informative.

The first story is that of Baby:

This picture was taken at approximately 6pm on July 9, 2011.

Baby is 28 years old. She was turned over to us when she was 22 along with her mother who was 32 yrs old. Baby had very little handling, and could barely even be walked with halter and lead rope. She had a halter on when we picked her up. She had been with her mother and only her mother all of her life. She had no other social skills with either horses or humans. Now she has had a great deal of human contact and does lead well. She can have her feet done, but there are times she goes off into a place in her mind that can and has created issues. However, with a great deal of patience and gentle touches we can get through it. When placed in a herd situation she becomes very nervous, paces back and forth and will go off her food. She does okay with a single horse and is perfectly content being next to one in her own stall. Though she is healthy and it would be great to place her in a herd situation, we cannot and will not place her in a situation that will stress her.

Baby is a permanent resident with us. People are seeking horses they can ride. They are not looking for horses that are pasture pets, nor horses with issues or that require constant vet care. Our area is very economically depressed, and individuals are giving away perfectly sound horses. Adoptions are down, and when we were adopting in better times, the adoption fees were assisting in providing feed and vet care for those horses remaining at the facility. Now that is not happening. Additionally, we believe matching horses to humans is very important. Just because a person thinks a horse is beautiful and that is what they want, we ask that they spend time with the horse to ensure there is compatibility. It either works or it doesn't.

Baby is seeking a sponsor(s) and she is accepting more than one sponsor as all the horses are. Any amount is helpful. At $19.00 for a bale of hay, everything helps.
