Boomer is a shy little fella who (like many mini horses) suffers from some health problems due to being bred to such a small size. But, with his best friend Lollipop by his side, Boomer is gaining confidence and tackling physical therapy like a champ!
Ripley is a young pony, with plenty of playfulness. He likes to tussle and play with Squirt, who is about his age. When he was first rescued, he was to be adopted out to a safe home, but his genetic orthopedic issues make it a great thing for him to have found sanctuary.
Cash is 18, from Tolland, CT. He had never lived with other horses before he came to the Sanctuary, so when he first arrived he lived with the goats. He is very calm natured and now enjoys living with the other minis.
Lollipop is a sweet little pinto who came to the sanctuary with her BFF Boomer. She is only 27 inches tall, but that doesn’t stop her from taking charge! Snacking used to be her main passion, but we’re working on helping her expand her horizons.
Squirt is a 5 year old strawberry roan Welsh Pony and came to the Sanctuary with his mother, Dory. He is the youngest horse at the Sanctuary and is playful and wild. Like his mother, Squirt is also partially blind.
Dory is a Welsh Pony who was rescued with her son, Squirt. She was completely blind in her left eye and is enjoying her retirement at the Sanctuary. She loves baths, walks, and meeting visitors.
Micky Blue Eyes
American Cream Draft/Appaloosa
Micky is a "gentle giant" draft horse with a long history as lesson barn favorite. He is also special because he was a foal rescued from a Premarin farm! He wears that fly mask as his sunglasses to protect his very pale blue eyes from the sun.
Sunny is a 22-year-old former lesson pony who could no longer be ridden due to a hoof problem. He is a stunning, sturdy, and super-sweet boy who loves to run around his paddock and nuzzle up next to his many admirers.
