Common Sense Cold Management for Horses

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[...]

Announcing our "Home for the Holidays" Adoption Event.  The 7 horses listed here - Star, Jackie, Jinny, Sammy, Dex, Butters, and Shelly - are a special group. All have good ground manners, but for various reasons are currently either unbroke or have physical reasons that limit their adoptability. So, for the rest of the year, these seven are[...]

A Look Back at Sumner

i Dec 20, 2012 by Nina Ring

This year for Gentle Spirit Horses was crazy to say the least. It seems that every year GSH gets a bit more well known, a bit more wide spread and bit more needed for the horses we help. 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[...]

With the exception of Aries, one of the buckskin Morgan stallions, all 41 of the Morgans we placed in the last six weeks will be in their new homes for the New Year.  Please take a look at our Available Horses page as they would all like new homes for the new year as well!

We did have one very low point in the Morgan effort - the beautiful filly[...]

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[...]

CRAZY day. Woke up to wet snow, wind, and all in all a yucky day. Got to the Morgans - lots of pictures and overall video coming. They were hyped and we weren't really able to catch many of them to tag and id. But got pictures of all of them, overall info, and we're taking the pictures to the breeder to get as much info as we could. There are 12[...]

Posting the Morgans - at least 26 need help!

i Nov 12, 2010 by Tiffany Ring

I have started posting the herd of Morgans that need to be rehomed ASAP.  Due to financial difficulties, the breeder WILL take these horses to auction if we can't home them.  We have a very short window of time to rehome a minimum of 26 Morgans - with another pasture of mares and babies yet to catalog.  It's probably closer to 40 horses that need[...]
