GARS has a selection of Minis ready for adoption. We work with them regularly and fully disclose all information we have regarding the horses history and behavior. If you are interested in one of them, send us an email or call so we can discuss your situation and get the application in process. (See the app on our forms page).
Adoption fee is $500 for any one of the horses, unless specified separately.
Whiskey. 9 yr old unregistered Gelding. Height: Color:
Whiskey had a serious injury (scar on his lower back), as he lived with two full sized stallions and one took a chunk out of him when the mare in the adjacet pen went into heat. A vet was not called, the former owners, did some minor surgery without benefit of anesthesia to remove the flap of skin and he scarred the way he scarred! Animal control removed him from this awful situation.
He loves people and is very inquisitive and would make a great human companion, trick pony or pasture ornament! (He’d love to be a house Mini!)
Trixter. 5 yr old unregistered Gelding. Height: Color: Sorrel Pinto
He has club feet which need to be trimmed every 3-4 weeks. Possibly can be trained to cart. He will require a knowledgeable person as he has an Alpha type personality.
Mitey. 15 yr old unregistered Miniature Gelding. Height: Color: Bay
Mitey had been allowed to bite other horses and people, one of the reasons we took him in. GARS is working with him on that. His overgrown hooves are about 12 weeks from being fully corrected, so he will be available some time in the Fall/Winter 2016.
Carmelo. Teenager, unregistered Miniature Gelding. Height: 30″ Color: Chestnut Pinto
Carmelo is an ultra mellow boy and can be an excellent service animal. He tends to be a bit of a loner and might do well as a solo animal.
Lucky. Unregistered Miniature Gelding. Height: Color: Red
Lucky is not available yet. He is a suspicious and cautious Mini and is going to need a steady hand and consistent care and calm gentle training with his new family. He also has ulcers which has led to chronic colic. We’re working closely with a veterinarian to get his stomach and gut in working order before he will be available for adoption.
