Light at the End of the Tunnel ... end of QT!

Sorry for the lack of horse photos lately - Nina needs a new phone as it doesn't take great pictures and Tiffany is up there in the dark. Tiffany (who is sick) whined last night that we haven't posted anything but event and business type posts all week and Nina responded by sending her pictures today. We work together well that way. Though the[...]

An Impactiful Trip to the Lower Brule Reservation; Introducing Ina, Mato, Gleska, Tahni and Chikala

Today, we made a trip to the Lower Brule Reservation near Chamberlain, SD, after being contacted by a vet about some young horses who were in need of help quickly. A kind young man had come into her clinic this past week and asked for help rehoming his young horses, as he was taking a job in Texas and leaving in a week. With little information, we[...]

With heavy hearts we regret to announce that 30 year old Society Golden Queen, one half of our famous elderly couple Sam & Queenie, was laid to rest at 12:30 this afternoon. About six weeks ago she suffered a serious choke, which we were able to clear and get through barely. She has not been quite right since, lost weight, has slowed down eating,[...]

Headaches in Horses

i Aug 08, 2015 by Tiffany Ring

GREAT article. Tommy, fly mask burier, gets headaches. Perhaps something to do with the compression in his neck (Wobbler Syndrome) but he gets tight in the poll. Tommy is a kind, sweet horse but then out of the blue he'll start pinning his ears as you walk by and get what can only be called as grumpy. He doesn't bite, lunge, or show any other[...]

Changes and Growth

We've hinted, posted some pictures, even said it a few times.  Now, we officially announce: as of May 1, GSH is leasing an additional 28 acres approximately 6 miles from our current Renner location. 

It's exciting, of course, and overwhelming.  There is a lot to do.  This land has been a cattle pasture for the last several years, so retrofitting[...]

For the past six weeks, Gentle Spirit Horses has worked hard to fundraise to secure the offspring of a previously adopted mare who was consigned to the Buckeye Morgan Horse Auction in Ohio.  The good news is we secured her and she's now in foster in Michigan, settling in, has a pending home, and is doing great!  The bad news is we are about $900[...]

We announced back in January when we filed our 501(c)(3) paperwork, and now have received the first in a series of steps from the IRS to reach our determination.  This simple letter is simply the verification they have received and are processing our application.  With this letter in hand, we can legitimately state we are a pending 501(c)(3)[...]
