Nellie Nellie is a 2011 model. She
is a sorrel filly with star and stripe features who is
curious, intelligent and shy. Nellie will pick up all four feet, leads
and stands tied. She learns new things easily and really likes mental
stimulation. She would really enjoy having a job. According to our
trainer it looks like Nellie was bred for speed and might make a good
gymkhana or barrel horse prospect. Definitely a quarter horse type. Click here to watch a video of Nellie »

and confident horse. Leads, picks up all 4 feet, stands tied and is a 2011 model.

Ringo Ringo is a pretty headed lady and has color and chrome to die for. She is a dark chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail and has 2 white stockings in the rear. She has a bold, easy going personality and nothing seems to bother her. She is excellent about picking her feet up for the farrier; she stands tied and will jump right in the trailer when asked. She is just being started under saddle and is accepting her new job willingly. She doesn’t get in a hurry to go anywhere and borders on lazy, but this will make her a very steady mount for someone once she has more experience under saddle. She is stocky built and measures 13.2 hands tall. Since she is a 2011 model, we expect her to grow a few more inches before she is finished growing. She should be big enough to carry an average sized adult with no problem but still be small enough for an experienced kid.
Twink: Twink is a gelding that was rescued while he was still nursing on his mama. He has been handled a lot since he came to us so he is very gentle and has learned to love people. You don’t have to catch him when you want him; he will catch you. He stands tied, leads, picks up his feet for the farrier and loads in a trailer. What more can you ask of a yearling? With all the handling that he has had throughout his youth, he will be easy to train under saddle. He has been saddled once (with a pony saddle) but will not be ridden until spring of 2014, since he is a 2012 model. He is a good looking colt, with a pretty head and nice lines. He has a very flashy way of moving. His mother is 13.2 hands tall and we expect Twink to be about that size when he is mature.
one is the perfect size and color. Luna is a 2006 model, gorgeous
buckskin mare who stands 14.2 hands tall. Based on the way she moves
and the set of her head and neck, we believe that she is a Morgan or
Morgan cross. She is extremely gentle and good minded. We have done a
lot of ground work with her, have saddled her and have sat on her
back. We will be riding her in the days to come. She has stood on a
pedestal, had a tarp draped over her back, has pushed a ball around the
arena and has stood on a bridge. She is easy to catch, stands tied and
picks up her feet for the farrier. Luna is available for adoption at
this time to a person who would have the ability to take her on in her
education. Since our adoption fees are based on the amount of time that
we spend working with our horses, her adoption fee is low at this
time. Because she is a perfect size, is easy to work with, her adoption
fee will increase rapidly with further training.
is a 6 year old chocolate palomino Rocky Mountain Horse. He has the
typical Rocky Mountain Horse gait that makes him comfortable to ride on
the trail. This boy laid back and easy to train. He is gentle, level headed,
and shows no bad habits, but is still green and simply needs some miles.
Kip will stand tied, lead, and is fine with the farrier and vet.
Gage 5 year old paint gelding that stands around 14.1 hands. This has been one of the easiest horses that we have ever worked with. Once he decided that he could trust people not to hurt him he became extremely friendly and gentle. Gage is being started under saddle at this time and has been ridden 10 times. He is coming along beautifully. He has been ridden in a round pen, an arena, in the pasture and briefly along the road. He is very laid back and really doesn’t get upset by anything. He is a rugged little guy with lots of bone and a good steady way of going. He stands tied, loads in a trailer, crosses a bridge and crosses water without blinking an eye. He picks his feet up for the farrier and will let you fly spray him. Because of his size and bone he would make an excellent little roping pony for a kid that likes to rope. Or he would be an excellent trail horse with more experience. He could be registered as a pinto if a person wanted to show him. He is stout enough to carry a small adult. Don’t miss this one. A good quiet gelding like this is hard to find.
Tipper Meet Tipper. We don't know her breed but she is a very fancy pony. She looks like she might have some arab in her but we don't know for sure. All we know for sure is that she is 3 years old, has a beautiful thick mane and tail and moves very pretty. She is easy to catch...she actually catches you and will follow you around like a puppy dog. She stands tied, loads in a trailer, crosses a bridge or a tarp, picks up her feet for farrier and is now being ridden. She has been extremely easy to work with and has excellent ground manners. She is not very tall, somewhere around 13.2 or 13.3 perhaps. We haven't measured her lately. She would make an excellent pony for a kid that knows how to ride. And we think she would be stunning pulling a cart as well.

Star Equine Program The
Star Equine Rehabilitation Program at the Nebraska Humane Society began
in earnest in September of 2012, spurred on by a growing number of
neglected horses coming through the agency’s gates. Generous donors,
and horse lovers came together to form a more comprehensive program
that includes housing the horses, providing proper nutrition, vet, and
farrier care, and then working the horses on basic skills needed to
ensure their adoptability. Click here for more info »
