Skittles is a miniature horse (about 9hh). She has been adopted.


Sunni was adopted as a 40th birthday present - what a wonderful gift he has become! HE IS DOING GREAT IN HIS NEW HOME WITH LOTS OF LOVE AND ATTENTION.

Taz came to the rescue in April 2008 as a wild colt who had never been handled. After many hours of handling, veterinary care and being gelded, he has now gone to his new career at a schooling barn in Binbrook, Black's Equestrian Centre. He is doing very well! Along with his new home, he has a new name - Rhett Butler.

Thank you, Harlee!

Hi Brenda and Dave!!

I just wanted to send you an update on the ponies! Rhett Butler is doing extremely well and I have included some of his best pictures. He is my most reliable lesson pony and a barn favourite. I use him for Jamie who is an advanced little hunter rider and he is kind enough to take my 7 year old nephew Johnny for a ride every Friday for his western lessons. I will get pics of him and Johnny soon. It's the cutest thing you have ever seen! He will do anything for food including getting his whiskers trimmed (he was pretty nervous at first!) 2 weeks ago he went to his first off property show and although he didn't trailer perfectly he was an angel upon arrival. We love him to pieces!

We have our Whispering Hearts calender up at Northstar and I promise to visit soon. Thank you again so much for saving these 2 wonderful ponies, they are very much loved and appreciated.


Tecumseh is an unusually coloured pinto gelding who came to WHHR with Cherokee in April 2012. Tecumseh has been adopted by one of our volunteers.

Congratulations, Jo and Tecumseh!
