RIP Omar’s Wendy, grand old lady of the Iowa 41 Morgan herd

i Feb 12, 2014 by Tiffany Ring

If you've been around long enough, you know that GSH went from being a private, family run rescue to an incorporated public rescue in a hurry, when in November of 2010 we ended up working with a breeder to place 41 Morgan horses who were out of food and out of control. These were all lovely, well bred horses, and the grand old lady of the herd was[...]

i Dec 13, 2013 by Tiffany Ring

Cold weather can be very hard on our horses, and in Renner we recently went through an early extended cold snap.  Actual temperatures were hovering around 0 and down to -15, with windchills of -20s to -30s.  The snap lasted for several days, which increased the problems.  At the same time, the cold snap brings out lots of opinions and debates as[...]

A Look Back at Sumner

I personally hope that things continue to grow but not because we are needed, but because of the generous people that support our little rescue in everyday little[...]

Morgan Update - Beating the storm

i Dec 11, 2010 by Nina Ring

Jumping Jack was first - his new owner Annie came and picked him up herself and took him back to his new home, where the vet came out to beat the weather and gelded him last night!  He's in an indoor arena, recovering and out of the weather, with food, water, and someone who will love him like no other!  I look forward to being able to go visit[...]
