Success Stories

We at SHARE are very proud to share some of the happy endings resulting from our rescues. These horses now have loving forever homes and hope for the future!

ADOPTED!!  Fancy came in with the Muncie 13. She was started under-saddle as a 3 year old and was coming along nicely. She was then adopted out and had some more time under-saddle. She came back to our facility in February 2015 and was once again looking for her forever home. Fancy, a very cute mover and so willing to please, was adopted by a couple who has other horses in need of a friend. Fancy has settled in with her new friends, even the ones in the next field that go MOO! Congrats to Fancy and her new family!

SHE'S ADOPTED! Lady is a beautiful red roan pinto Missouri Fox Trotter mare who came to us when her previous owners could no longer care for her. She is a docile and very nice mare and will make a great horse for a lucky family. Lady has smooth gaits and is broke to ride. She was adopted by a family looking for a family horse and they got a great gal!

YES! HE'S ADOPTED!! Prince is an approx. 9 year old gelding who is roughly 14 hands high. He came from the Toledo Ten rescue and was severely emaciated; in fact, he was one of the worst, covered with burrs and just skin and bone. Prince had come along very nicely, gained some much need weight but still needed to learn to trust people again. And along came his heroine! She worked with him, gaining his trust. She was willing to give him the one-on-one time he needed to turn around. We are so very happy for both of them!

ADOPTED!  Shygirl came in with the Ernest Rose horses in 2007, and was very nervous and shy. She was pregnant with Sunshine, also available for adoption, and foaled during her stay at SHARE. She has made leaps and bounds with consistent ground training, and now lunges well, and walks over scary things like tarps without a problem. Shygirl is a very sweet and intelligent horse who would love to find her forever home. Shygirl found her forever human - a volunteer who worked with Shygirl, taught Shygirl to trust in her and a bond was formed. Shygirl is now Scarlet; and the two of them are enjoying forging that bond that will last a lifetime.

ADOPTED!   Twiggy is a 2011 Nurse Mare orphan. She came in with horrible urine burns and a fungal infection that had taken most of the hair on her face and some spots on her body as well. She was our youngest nurse mare foal and not one we'd planned on, but she clearly wasn't doing well and we couldn't leave her behind! Twiggy's hair had grown in and she is a healthy and lovely young lady. She is used to lots of handling, is halter broke and will stand pretty good for the farrier. At 3 years old, she's doing great. In May 2012, at almost exactly 1 year old she was 13.2 hands high. She has no signs of her rough start and our vet said the nurse mare colts will not have any lasting issues because of it. She's adorable, sweet, and was ready for her forever home! A young lady fell in love with Twiggy, worked hard to make Twiggy hers and the pair has bonded and are heading to college together! A wonderful life ahead for our little Twiggy!!

ADOPTED BY A WONDERFUL FAMILY!  Sunny is a gorgeous palomino who spent quite some time as a resident of SHARE before finding a wonderful home. She is now a companion to another mare and well loved by her new adoptive family!


ADOPTED!  Dazzle came back to us after being adopted when her family was moving and couldn't take her with. She found a new home where she will be a pasture mate to another horse, and she will also be a riding horse and hopefully will be teaching people how to ride!
