Our Team

...otherwise known as "The Unicorns"

Walter

Standardbred- 9 yrs old

We purchased him Walter off the track where he raced as a pacer.  He has some amazing relatives in his blood lines and has won more than a few races.  He came to us as his groom thought it was time for him to "be a horse".  He is happy in his new & undemanding career as our resident happy guy. His favorite thing is having his forehead tickled.

Cisco

CEO/Appaloosa- 17 yrs old

This guy has never had a hard day in his life.  He was purchased as a 3 year old as Dave's personal riding horse.  He has won many ribbons competing in endurance style races. His favorite things are pears, apples and carrots

Dakota

Quarter Horse- 18 yrs old

Dakota was used primarily as trail riding horse. He is very calm and experienced under saddle. He arrived extremely overweight and in need of a fitness program. He loves food.  All food.  His passion is food. lol

Roy

Quarter Horse- 15 yrs old

Sherry purchased Roy from a situation where he was roughly handled and fearful of people. 10 years later and with plenty of TLC he has become a people lover.  He is also Sherry's personal riding horse, but she usually shares him with guests.  His nicknames are Mr. Namaste & Cuddles.  He loves carrots

*****5 star ultimate beginner horse!


Reno

Appaloosa- 6 yrs old

Reno was purchased as a non-rescue.  We were seeking a horse that was ready for anybody to ride that would fit in with the rest of the crew.  He is a lovely boy with a lot more "whoa than go".  He loves people and meal times. 

Jack

Quarter Horse- 16 yrs old

Jack was an owner-surrender to The Humanity for Horses Rescue.  He needed some good nutrition and hoof care to become the lovely boy he has become.  He loves people and going for walks....sounds more like dog than a horse.  lol

Apache

Appaloosa- 12 yrs old

Apache came from a place where he wasn't getting the nutrients he needed.  He was very thin.  We have given him a lot of groceries, some good exercise, and a lot of love.  He has turned into a very handsome fellow with nice muscles.  He has also bonded very closely to our Walter.  His favorite thing is being told he's a good boy.  oh...and...carrots...of course

Mick

Appaloosa- 14 yrs old

Mick was purchased at an auction, saved from slaughter. He needed rehabilitative work done to his neglected hooves and some convincing that people can be kind.  Can you believe he didn't know what a carrot was for?!?!  He is now doing very well, enjoying his work and eating carrots!

Dave

The Boss

Very experienced horseman with a kooky sense of humor.

Sherry

The Other Boss

Another very experienced horse-person, also with a kooky sense of humor

Seamus

Draft Cross-22 years old

Seamus was purchased at the same auction as Mick. Saved from Slaughter.  When Seamus arrived at Sun Hills we noticed some swelling on his knee and a slight limp.  It was diagnosed as arthritis.  We concluded that Seamus was due to retire after a long life as a hunting guide's, pack and kid's horse.  With the help of Humanity for Horses Rescue, we found him a home as a little girl's companion horse.  Seamus is now living the dream.
