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.
Catness: Is a Pretty Bay mare, 2006 model, Tennessee Walker, not started under saddle but handled a lot, will be entering our training program soon.
Spirit: Is a 2000 model, black with high white, very pretty, she is a spotted saddle horse/Tennessee walker cross, gentle, some ground work/ground driving 4-5 years ago, not yet started under saddle but will be entering our training program soon.
New Horses at NHS: These horses are part of a group that came in on February 6 from a property in Boone County. The horses were pulled from the property due to lack of feed and veterinary care. They were underweight and in generally poor condition. They range in age from 8 months up but are a nice young group and are responding well in our care. They have been dewormed, vaccinated and are otherwise healthy and gaining weight. We are working with them on the basics: approaching them, haltering, leading , picking up feet and learning to trust.

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 »
