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.
is a 5 or 6-year-old grey, Quarter type mare. She is 14 hands tall, which makes her perfect for any average person who might find it difficult to get on a larger horse. Her size would also make her perfect for a kids horse once she has had more training. Willow is very smart and willing, and is proving to be very easy to train. She has recently been moved into the training program where she is learning to be a riding horse. She leads easily, stands tied, loads in a trailer and picks her feet up for the farrier. She has been saddled a few times and is just learning how to be ridden.
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.
Available Shetland Ponies:
Blondie: Blondie is a 10 year old mare who is approximatly 10 hands high. This shetland pony is a gorgeous chocolate palomino in color. She has been handled and will stand for the farrier. She also leads, ties, and easily loads into a trailer.
Tonka: Tonka is a 8 year old shetland pony that stands 10 hands high. He is a chocolate palomino paint who is gelded, and has been handled. This friendly little man will stand for the farrier, leads and ties. He will also easily load into a trailer.

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 »
