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 »

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.
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.
Luna: Luna is a beautiful little buckskin mare that measures in at 14.2 hands. She is extremely gentle and likes people. She has been ridden 20 times and is coming along nicely. She is a little touchy about a rear cinch at this time and because of this she would require an experienced rider. We are certain, with careful handling, she will get over the cinchiness and we continue to work with her on it. We are exposing her to a lot of things and have ridden her in a Peter Campbell clinic with a lot of other horses. Luna will stand tied, picks up feet for farrier, jumps in a trailer, walks over bridges and tarps and has excellent ground manners.
Kip Kip is a 7 year old gelding who stands a very sturdy 14 hands tall. He is a chocolate palomino color with paint markings. He is a gaited horse, probably a Rocky Mountain Horse cross. He will walk, trot, lope and do a 4 beat gait. He has perfect ground manners and has been under saddle for some time. He was recently ridden in a Peter Campbell horsemanship clinic where he learned very valuable skills and was ridden among a lot of other horses. He is a sensitive guy and needs a rider who can help develop his confidence. He is very playful in a herd and can be a little dominant with his buddies. He stands tied, loads in a trailer, crosses bridges and tarps and has been used to pony other horses. He does very well on trail rides and doesn’t seem to care if he is in front or behind in a group.

Gage Gage is a 5 year old, paint gelding that stands 14.1 hands tall. He is a rugged little guy with lots of bone and a steady way of going. He is laid back and gentle. He stands tied, loads in a trailer, picks up his feet for the farrier and has been exposed to many different kinds of obstacles at a local trail competition. He has been on extended trail rides a couple of times and has done remarkably well. He will make an excellent trail horse or would be a great little roping pony for some kid that likes to rope. He is big enough to carry a small adult and gentle enough that he might make a good kids horse in a couple of years.

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 »
