Happy Trails has been contacted by a member of our senior community in an effort to help his bonded pair of Haflingers, Bonny and Clyde ages 25 and 30. This gentleman is 82 years young and his wife is in failing health. They have owned the two horses for the majority of their lives, and love them dearly but the care is just getting to be too much for him now. These freezing temps and heavy snow make it even more difficult, especially for hauling water from the house to the barn.
We are reaching out to you, our compassionate followers, in hopes of finding a forever placement for Bonny and Clyde. They are healthy and easy keepers just needing someone to love and take care of them.
Please keep in mind that we have no training information, we don't recommend they be adopted for children or grandchildren, and they would be best suited as pasture companions.
If you are interested in adopting these two beauties, please contact our Placement Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org ... See MoreSee Less
Do you have a local trainer that would evaluate them? That would help get them placed.
Where are they? We are in WA
I asked a local sanctuary about horses in a very similar situation recently (not mine) and they asked me to consider the horses perspective. If there is no underlying financial difficulty, they suggested that the elderly couple hire someone to care for them. They thought the horses would prefer not to leave their home. If it can't be afforded that is different but I feel compelled to mention it since this relays frequently with caring, older horse owners. Prayers this all works out for the beauties.
I know you used to ride / still do sometimes. Thought you may have some kind of know how in this lane Cathryn Martin

Due to the extremely cold conditions we have had recently, we are in need of additional heated water buckets for our horses. These keep water at a tepid temperature so there is always fresh water for them to drink.
