Pal

Height:
Age: 0
Level: 9
Status: Currently Unavailable

Pal was born at Bella Run just one month after his mom was rescued!

He had a rough beginning (being born to a skinny/senior mother isn’t exactly the easiest start!) but is now thriving! Jane has plenty of milk for him, and he’s now running and bucking like a real live rodeo horse!

His legs may look crooked in the pictures, but they have straightened up w[..]



Thumper

Thumper was born here just 6 days after his mom, Bunny, was rescued.

He is a little stud colt (will obviously be a gelding eventually) and is a handful already!

We are going to be weaning him in a few months to give both him and his mom the best chance for success! Stay tuned, this one is the man of the hour!

If you are intereste[..]



Jewel

Height: 15.2
Age: 18
Level: 7
Status: Available

Jewel came into our program because she was at risk of being sent to a kill auction.

Though someone purposely bred her, she was not educated.  For most of her life, Jewel was nothing but a pet.  Jewel is flashy and LOVES to be scratched, but a lack of education and an owner that passed away put her at risk of entering the slaughter pipeline.

Now at Bella[..]

Janis (Joplin) came into our program because she was at risk of being sent to a kill auction.

Though someone purposely bred her, she was not educated.  For most of her life, Janis was nothing but a pet.  She learned that people meant butt scratches and attention, but a lack of formal education and an owner that passed away put her at risk of entering the slaughter pipeline.[..]



Foxy

Height: 15.0
Age: 30
Level: 6
Status: Available

Foxy is a phenomenal mare. Don't judge her by her age... you will be surprised! Foxy competed in the Versatile Horse and Rider Competition at Equine Affaire and she is the farthest thing from "old and tired". This mare has the zip, the work ethic, and the desire to continue to be someone's favorite horse!

She can open and close gates, turn on the forehand, spin, sliding stop, ba[..]



Mia

Height: 13.3
Age: 2
Level: 6
Status: Available

Mia was seized by animal control after being involved in a hoarding situation. She was then auctioned off... twice. A group of people rallied andthanks to the BAIL program, she landed safely at Bella Run.

Mia was pretty untouchable when she came, but now can be caught, is friendly (once your prove that you aren’t a bad guy) and leads well. She loads onto a trail with just a litt[..]



Flip

Height: 15.0
Age: 12
Level: 6

Flip was passed around quite a bit before being sold at auction. Her behavior indicates unpleasant interactions with humans.

She is currently being physically rehabbed and is recovering emotionally before we start looking for a home for her. Throw her on the back burner... this gal needs a little time to heal. Eventually, she will return to trail riding and other disciplines, sh[..]



Norah

Norah Jones came into our program because she was at risk of being sent to a kill auction.

Though someone purposely bred her, she was not educated.  For most of her life, she was nothing but a pet.  Looking at her, you can tell that she is a well-bred mare, and now we are adding the education to match!

Now at Bella Run, she is learning how to be a so[..]



Punky

Height: 14.1
Age: 4
Level: 5
Status: Available

Punky is a local gal that came to us because her owners wanted her to be educated and safely placed in a home.

She has done extensive Natural Horsemanship, and we don’t think there is a horse on the farm that has had more groundwork done! She has also been saddled and ridden by her previous owner, and will continue that education here. She loves people, is sweet, and has one hec[..]



Sam (plus one... she’s pregnant!)

Height: 15.0
Age: 5
Level: 5
Status: Available

The other two mares that Sam came in with (Bunny and Jane) were pregnant, so we had an ultrasound done on Sam “just to make sure she isn’t pregnant”. What do you know? SHE IS. Her baby is due in June, and until then we are making sure that she has everything she needs nutritionally to pop out a healthy baby!

Sam is so incredibly friendly. It’s almost impossible to clean out her [..]



Skeeter

Level: 4

Hang on to your hats! Skeeter has enough personality for a whole herd of horses! He gets along well with dogs, cats, sheep, goats, and other horses. He LOVES attention and is a “people person”.

Skeeter would love an owner that can keep him busy. Obstacle courses, trail riding, or cow work are all things that he would be a happy little clam while doing. Lots of arena w[..]

Maggie

Height: 16.0
Age: 16
Level: 3
Status: Available

How about a blast from the past? Maggie was adopted out years ago and was loved by her family for years and years.  Eventually, the kids went to college and the family had to downsize.  Selling a horse is often overwhelming and can be scary, so they were happy to hear that we would welcome Maggie back into our program.

Maggie has a big walk, and a very smooth trot and canter.  S[..]



Mae

Height: 15.1
Age: 13
Level: 3

Mae was saved from slaughter at the very last minute. She was covered in lice and rain rot, and has since blown most of her coat. Finally, healthy hair is starting to grow back in underneath and she is gaining weight. She plays with her tongue at mealtimes, and whinnies when she sees us.

Mae has a while to go before she will be ready for her new home, but we are so proud of the [..]



Abraham

Height: 15.3
Age: 24
Level: 1
Status: Currently Unavailable

Abraham was surrendered to our program because his owners couldn’t keep him anymore. Initially he was a sulky horse, but was retired after just a couple years (thankfully sound). He spent the bulk of his life as an Amish buggy horse for an old Woman, and when she passed away he was taken to the Sugarcreek auction. Thankfully, he was rescued, and was ridden by kids and on trails with his family. [..]



Jane

Age:

Status: Currently Unavailable

Jane was rescued when she was pregnant and very skinny. Almost exactly one month after her arrival, she had her colt, Pal. They are both doing well and now Jane can focus on gaining weight and getting healthy!

To ensure the best possible outcome for both horses, we are waiting to adopt out Jane until after Thumper is weaned. Jane is an older mare that is broke to ride. She is ve[..]



Chickadee

Height: 14.3
Age:
Level: 0
Status: Currently Unavailable

Chickadee is a prime example of the shuffle that horses in the slaughter pipeline go through before landing at a slaughter house.

The farthest back we can trace (without bringing in the CIA) leads us to the fact that someone rode this little mare, in an effort to show her off at auction, until she was dripping with sweat. She was then auctioned off only to be bought b[..]



Bunny

Bunny was rescued when she was VERY pregnant. She had her foal (Thumper) just 6 days after coming into our program, and thankfully he was a healthy, bouncing little boy! She is still battling a hoof abscess, but it is currently draining well and will be resolved in no time!

Bunny has been an absolute sweetheart the entire time she has been with us. Because we believe that an edu[..]
