** = Horses that are sound and ready for adoption

ADIEU is available for sponsorship and companion adoption.
Adieu is a Standardbred foaled in approximately 1997 who was owned by a Horses' Haven member who bred and raised her. She was sold and in harness training in Florida when her new owners found she was going blind. They were going to take her to the auction until her previous owner (our member) heard about her difficulties and bought her back. She knew a handicap like blindness wasn't a problem here at Horses' Haven, so asked if she could bring Adieu to come and live here. Adieu is pretty and has a nice personality. She plays with her feed dish a lot. She throws it and carries it around her pasture just for fun.
   
adonishead ADONIS is available for sponsorship and adoption (with Clint).
Appropriately named after the Greek god who was known for his beauty, our Adonis is a Percheron foaled in approximately 1997. Before coming to Horses' Haven in 2009 he spent most of his life pulling heavy wagons and trailers full of people at one of our local metroparks. He was put up for auction when he developed a bone problem that limited his usefulness for pulling. A concerned friend called Horses' Haven and asked that we bid on him in order to save him from an uncertain future. He is a big, gentle sweetheart who enjoys his pasture with Clint out by the small pond. Volunteers and visitors like to shower him with attention and he loves it.
   
ANGEL is available for sponsorship and companion adoption.
Angel, a Saddlebred mare foaled in approximately 1992, came to Horses' Haven in Dec. 2007 after being seized by animal control. We were so sad when we saw her come in with Cloud, as they were both so painfully thin. Angel was a surrogate mom to little Cloud, whose mother was traded for hay when he was two months old and still nursing. As you can see, Angel is now healthy and beautiful thanks to all the care and love she has received here at Horses' Haven. Read more about Angel and see before and after pictures in Horses' Haven Stories.

CASEY is available for sponsorship and companion adoption.
When Casey and her two sons, Moses and Joey, came to Horses' Haven it meant no more starvation for all of them. They arrived in 2008 from Animal Control. Casey, foaled in approximately 1985, was a wonderful mother and will take care of any youngster. She made friends with Winnie, a younger mare, and they love to run and play together outside. Moses and Joey are both happily adopted out.

Hootie is a handsome gray Quarter Horse/Thoroughbred cross who was foaled on Mar. 22, 1991. He has navicular and arthritic hocks, so was looking for a good retirement home. Where better than Horses' Haven? He was on the waiting list for two years before there was an opening for him at Horses' Haven.

JULIETTE is available for sponsorship.
Juliette is a Quarter Horse who arrived at Horses' Haven in 2008 as a four-month-old filly born with a bad knee. Two vets checked her out and both said they could do surgery that would make the knee look better but it wouldn't help the knee itself. She is just the sweetest thing, and from the way she runs and plays we don't think she even knows she has a problem.
   
KENTUCKY is available for sponsorship and companion adoption.
A real sweetheart, Kentucky arrived at Horses' Haven in March 2014. She is a Saddlebred mare foaled in 1987. For the past few years she was living with longtime friends of Horses' Haven. Due to their own health concerns, they thought Kentucky would be taken care of best by our terrific volunteers here at the farm. She's been a lesson horse for children, including those going through cancer treatment. What a great gal.

This Thoroughbred/Trakehner gelding has an approximate foal date of 1995. He's broke to ride on trails or for dressage. He came to Horses' Haven as an owner surrender.
   
LUKE is available for sponsorship.
Luke was born on Apr. 24, 1997. He is a Thoroughbred gelding who was a former event horse until he started going blind in one eye which ended his career. He is a big, handsome fellow and it's a shame this happened to him at such a young age. He is now going blind in his other eye. He enjoys spending his days grazing with Maizie.
   
MAIZIE is available for sponsorship.
When Maizie came to Horses' Haven, we put her out with Luke, who had lost his friend Hollywood and was feeling blue. We had high hopes he would find a new friend in Maizie and he did. Maizie, who has an approximate foal date of 1990, like Luke is blind. The partnership worked out so well that we now call them the "Velcro Kids" because they always stick together.
   
MOOSE (aka Big Freddy) is available for sponsorship.

We welcomed this Belgian gelding with a foal date of 2005 back to our farm in December 2013. He rocks the scales at approximately 2,500 lbs and a massive 18.3 hands. For those of you that aren't sure... that's really, really tall in horse lingo! When standing near the front of our property you can see this handsome boy all the way back to his pasture. Moose's first visit to our farm was in December 2006; he was adopted out in April 2007.

THELMA & LOUISE. Thelma is available for sponsorship and companion adoption. Louise is available for sponsorship.
Thelma and Louise, both Belgians, came to Horses' Haven as part of a rescue in March 2007. These ladies are good friends. Thelma, foaled in approximately 1992, is pretty quiet. Louise, foaled in approximately 2004, is the opposite and full of energy. A photographer tried to get pictures of Thelma one day and it was kind of funny watching her trying to get Thelma to put up her ears for the photo. She is so laid back and unflappable.
   
WILMA is available for sponsorship.
Our barn tour guide Wilma is a blind Standardbred mare, who had a very important job before coming to Horses' Haven. She was a blood donor at Michigan State University.
Wilma, who has an approximate foal date of 1987, served her fellow horses for many years in this capacity, and when it was determined that it was time to retire her from this duty, rather than euthanize her, the folks at MSU wanted to find her a place where she could live out her remaining years in comfort and with people to love and fuss over her. So, they decided Horses' Haven was the place and donated her.

We'll bet you never really thought much about horses like Wilma who helped other horses so they could live. There are probably lots of horses throughout Michigan who owe their lives to Wilma. We're sure they extend their thanks to Wilma for all the good she's done throughout her useful life.
   
winnie WINNIE is available for sponsorship.
Foaled in approximately 1998, Winnie was frightened half to death when she arrived in 2009 because she had been through several auctions in a row. She had a serious eye issue, and a lot of scars on her front legs. She was so nervous and frightened that she backed into a corner ready to defend herself. Now she has an equine friend in Casey and loves lots of volunteers too, because she comes up to the stall front every day to say "hi" and "thank you."
   
ZEKE is available for sponsorship and companion adoption.
After being on our waiting list for over a year, Zeke's owners were very excited that Horses' Haven finally had an opening to take him in. Zeke is an American Quarter Horse gelding, foaled on Feb. 29, 1988. He is blind in his left eye. Although trained for western pleasure and trail riding, he's now ready to take it easy due to lameness in his right front leg.
   
  ZEPHYR is available for sponsorship.
One of the Davison Rescue Thoroughbreds, Zephyr was foaled in 1995 and came back to Horses' Haven in April 2012.
