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 »
Two Socks Two
Socks is a sorrel, gelding with 2 white stockings and a
blaze. His markings and body type suggest that he has paint
bloodlines. Two Socks is curious, sociable and intelligent. He thinks
a lot of himself and has lots of attitude. Two Socks will be a brave
and confident horse. Leads, picks up all 4 feet, stands tied and is a 2011 model.
is a bay, Arabian type filly with 2 white pasterns, a star
and snip. She is very cute, quick and agile as well as incredibly
intelligent, curious, playful and confident. She is a strong leader in
the group and others seek out her companionship. She will make a good
all around horse that will be quick on her feet. She is very
personable, sensible and likes people. Leads, stands tied, picks
up all 4 feet 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.
is a black or smokey black (definitely not a bay), filly with
no white markings. She is confident, curious, and sociable. Hope is a
very sensible and laid back filly with just the right amount of
sensitivity to be easily trained. She should be a very stocky mare, not
too tall and very possibly cow bred. Her build and attitude suggest
foundation quarter horse bloodlines. Stands tied, leads, picks up
all 4 feet, and is a 2011 model.
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.
Classic: Classic is a 2006 model, stock horse type, Bay Roan mare. She is gentle, has excellent ground manners and is perfectly sound. She is just the right size at 14.2 hands, has a stocky build and is a beautiful mover. She is easy to catch, stands tied and is just being started under saddle. At this time we are also teaching her to pick up her feet for the farrier and to load in a trailer. Classic is available for adoption now to someone who can take her on in her education. Our adoption fees are based on the amount of time that we have spent training our horses. Because of this, Classic's fee is low at this time but will increase as we spend more time working with her. Someone please take this mare and give her a great home before the trainer decides to keep her for herself. She doesn't really need another horse but this one is really tempting her.
Luna: This 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.

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 »
