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[...]

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[...]

i Apr 02, 2014 by Tiffany Ring

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)[...]

The next big step

i Feb 16, 2014 by Tiffany Ring

The next big step for GSHGSH has taken the next big step in our organization.  As of today we've completed and submitted the 501(c)3 application and paperwork.  Now we wait for our determination letter!

When we originally incorporated, it was always our plan to become a 501(c)3.  We've saved up the funds for it a few times, only to have to use the money for hay or other[...]

When we first incorporated, the Iowa41 Morgans were placed under a different contract than we use now. The unborn foals fell in a gray area. Because we placed the Morgans mostly with very respected people in the Morgan community, we placed them with a Transfer of Ownership with First Right of Refusal clause. The unborn foals fell into a gray area.[...]

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[...]
