Horses


Renegade.jpg

Renegade

  • American Paint Horse

  • Gelding

  • Foaled in 2000

  • 15.2hh

Renegade was rescued from a brutal Louisiana kill pen. He is a 15.2hh American Paint Horse gelding, foaled in 2000. If you have visited M&M Acres, you have probably encountered Renegade - when he is inside, he is constantly looking for someone to pet him. He loves attention and loves kids!

Prior to his life at M&M, Renegade sustained a left shoulder injury that did not heal properly. He has no muscle mass in that shoulder, so he is no longer rideable. He also had a cancerous growth in his left eye that was removed at the University of Illinois. It was squamous cell carcinoma, which is common in white-faced horses. If he wears a UVA/B mask, the cancer is unlikely to return.

QUICK FACTS: Not rideable, but loves having a job. Loves kids. Gets along well with most horses. Stands nicely for vet, farrier, and chiropractor.


Butters.jpg

Buttercup

  • Palomino

  • Mare

  • Foaled in 2015

  • 13.2-14hh

Buttercup (Butters) was pulled from a kill pen in Oklahoma as a yearling (she was foaled in 2015). She was very clingy and preferred people over horses, leading us to believe she was an orphaned foal.

Butters loves attention! She is very petite so will best suited for a rider no more than 100lbs. We do not expect her to grow much more. We lightly ride her around the property both bareback and in a saddle and bridle. We’ve even used her for pony rides for our itty bitty riders. Butters is not easily phased, it takes quite a bit to spook her. She is probably the laziest horse at M&M, constantly napping and sunning herself.

She stands for the farrier, though prefers her head on your shoulder when doing so. She enjoys baths and, like a typical Palomino, even moreso enjoys rolling in the dirtiest spot she can find after a bath. She is lower on the totem pole in her herd. She also enjoys escaping so sturdy fencing is a requirement.

Buttercup would be best suited for a home with a petite rider who will give Butters lots of attention. She stands 13.2-14hh.


Brandy.jpg

Brandy

  • Quarter Horse

  • Mare

  • Late Teens

  • 15.1hh

Brandy is an quarter horse mare in her late teens. She was sent for retirement from the Hansen Center for Therapeutic Riding. She is quiet and suitable for small children. She has navicular, but is sound enough for light riding by small riders. She is wonderful on trail, loads and hauls easily. She stands nicely for the farrier and vet. She would be best suited for a mostly pasture, minimal riding home. She stands 15.1 hh.

Brandy typically prefers people over other horses, and she loves food!


Miss Belle.jpg

Miss Belle Rae

  • Belgian Draft Horse

  • Mare

Miss Belle Rae (Belle) was rescued from a kill pen in Oklahoma. She is a Belgian Draft horse. Large horses are purchased quickly by kill buyers due to their weight. Luckily, she wasn’t in the kill pen very long. Her old owner tracked us down and told us she sold Belle to who she thought was a loving home. M&M offered to return Belle to her previous owner, but her owner declined as she could not afford Belle due to a divorce situation. Belle was used as a vaulting and parade horse in Nevada!

Belle requires an intermediate rider as she’s very forward moving. After about 3 miles on trail, or 45 minutes of arena work, she becomes sore. She has some arthritis in her hips. She would be best suited for a light riding, w/t home.


Trifecta 1.jpg

Trifecta

  • Argentinian Polo Pony

  • Mare

  • ~30 years old

  • 15hh

Trifecta is an Argentinian Polo Pony mare, standing about 15hh. She is around 30 years old, but still has much pep! She is a little forward moving, so would need an advanced beginner rider. She can handle a weight limit up to around 100 pounds. She has been used in our lesson program for several months.

Trifecta would love to be adopted with her buddy, Fern

Max Em.jpg

Ember & Maximus

We would really like to see Max and Ember homed together. They are best friends.

Ember is a QH mare, around 15.1hh and in her upper teens to early twenties. She is beginner friendly and neck reins. She’s quiet and a favorite amongst our lesson students. She’s good on trail and very quiet.

Maximus is an Azteca gelding. We are guessing he is in his twenties, but has cribbed so much that his teeth are nubs. Since coming to M&M, his cribbing is very, very minimal - so much so we don’t even use a cribbing collar. He is very quiet and beginner friendly. His weight limit for riding is 50 pounds and walk, minimal trot only.

Both are great for the farrier and vet. Both load, haul, and bathe well. These are two of the sweetest horses at M&M and deserve a superb home.


Cookie 1.jpg

Cookie

  • Appaloosa

  • Mare

  • Late 20’s

  • 16hh

Cookie is an Appaloosa mare in her late twenties, standing 16hh. Cookie is an owner surrender; she was a livery horse at a very busy facility. After a severe active cellulitis infection, Cookie became difficult to handle by beginner riders and the workload was too heavy for her.

Cookie needs her legs to stay wrapped under bandages when she is inside. This promotes circulation in her leg and prevents swelling and infection. Her legs must be checked daily for cuts or abrasions. She is on special supplements to help her immune system and is on a specialized senior diet.

Cookie loves attention, and is looking for a home where she can be a pasture puff with constant love and affection.

 

ponies


Tinsel.jpg

Tinsel

Tinsel is a 10 year old Shetland Pony. Upon her arrival to M&M she had a severe parasitic infestation and ulcers. She was still nursing her foal and was so emaciated that our vet gave her a body score of “2.” Her hair was very long and more matted than our staff had ever seen in a horse. We had to shave her, which she was not a fan of!

Tinsel was treated for both the parasitic infection and ulcers. Her hair was shaved and has grown back. She and her foal, Dreidel, were slowly separated from each other. Tinsel is now healthy and had obviously gained weight.

Tinsel is broke for pony rides. She would be a great project pony to be whoever you want her to be. She is dominant in herds.


Annie Lucky .jpg

Annie & Lucky

Annie and Lucky were rescued from a man who no longer wanted them. He had Annie, Lucky and a third pony. He said if they weren’t picked up in a certain period of time, he would put them down. Sadly, despite clearly stating all 3 ponies would be homed, he put the third pony down. Luckily, we were able to rescue Annie and Lucky and bring them to M&M. Annie is very sweet and willing to learn. Lucky is a spitfire. Lucky is an escape artist and able to escape from many enclosures!

Annie and Lucky must stay together. Annie is broke for pony-rides and can pull a cart. She is in her mid-late teens. She stands about 34” tall. Lucky is a spitfire and escape artist. She would make a good project pony. She’s about 10 years old and stands around 32” tall.

Pigs


Dax 2.jpg

Dax

Dax’s previous owners could no longer keep him so he came to live with us at M&M in hopes of finding a forever home. Dax was born in 2014 and is a male potbellied pig.

Dax needs an owner who has pig experience and will take time to understand him/help him adjust to a new home. He is very sweet and loves to snuggle once a trusting relationship has been established. He will even follow you around and come when his name is called! Dax currently lives with 3 other pigs at M&M (all adoptable - watch for upcoming posts!) He requires an experienced pig, no children home.

Dax is a very sweet, smart pig - could you be the one to give Dax a home?


Pinky Pie.jpg

Pinky Pie

Pinky Pie was an owner surrender and would do best in an indoor home. She is about 3 years old.

Fran Bern.jpg

Frannie & Bernice

Frannie and Bernice are best friends! They are at M&M temporarily until they find our forever home. These lovely ladies had a home and family, but due to a move, these loving piggies were surrendered to M&M. They have adapted to farm life just fine, but wouldn't mind being house pigs again either.  Frannie is the boss of the bunch and loves sitting in her pool when it is hot outside. Bernice is the rebel and likes to go exploring! They are both friendly with children and other animals. These girls would love a family of their own!  

Frannie and Bernice are available for adoption.  They must go together. Frannie is a one year old, female (not yet spayed) mini pig.  Bernice is a one year old (not yet spayed) pot bellied pig.  They are suited for either a home or a farm.
