Ace in Minnesota
Ace was a horse that came to the Kentucky Equine Adoption Center from a difficult
divorce situation. His owner was desperate to find a home for him and she had limited
time. He came to the Center as a stallion and was gelded shortly after arrival. After a
bit of time here, he was adopted sight unseen by a lovely woman in MN. We are thrilled
that this match is the perfect one and grateful for the home that Ace now has. This is
“To Karen and Julie and all the folks at the rescue here is a post I put up earlier about
my awesome horse I adopted from you (formerly known as Ace) :
I’ve been meaning to send a photo of my Valhalla, formerly known as Ace to you. I
adopted him in 2013 when your rescue was very crowded and he had had very little
handling and was newly gelded. I adopted him sight unseen and had him shipped up
here to Minnesota. Your trainer was very helpful in putting us together. She just knew!
I’ve had horses all of my life but this is the smartest, most loving horse I’ve ever had. He
is the love of my life and an amazing dressage prospect. Thank you for bringing this
horse into my life. “
Pam and Lobo
Lobo was one of our older horses here at the center, and had been here for several years. Even for his age (he is in his mid 20's) he had such get up and go!
We were so happy when Pam called and said she was interested in Lobo. She was so gung-ho on getting him quickly because Pam, her husband and her other horse Sally, an Arabian mare, winter in Florida.
Pam picked up Lobo on their way down to their summer home and as you can see he is adjusting greatly and is enjoying the sun and warmth. She is riding him and loves him!
She has even gotten him to slow down and enjoy the scenery. Thanks Pam for the great update, we look forward to many more!
Sara and Mr. Foster
The following is an excerpt of what Sara had to say on how she and Foster met. (FYI- Sara was an intern here at the center. She now does therapy on some of our horses, as she owns her own equine therapy business call "Lady Luck Equine Therapy")
"Two years ago, I walked out into a field at the Kentucky Equine Adoption Center and was almost knocked over by a small, brown thing that insisted I be his friend. Two years later, he’s reserve champion in the long stirrup division and the circuit champion for the November/December shows at Lakeside Arena. He’s come so far and made me become a better rider and work to improve myself so I can improve him. Here’s to the next two years and beyond #ottb #fosterthepeople #hunter #rescue #adoptdontshop"
Echo & Danielle
Echo (Now Misty) has been a busy girl since she has been adopted! She started out in dressage and has since branched out to jumping and cross country. She has competed in several shows and has placed in the top 3 in each of them, even placed 4th on her first cross country course. Her owner is enjoying her greatly and they competed in a couple highly recognized shows this past spring! We can't wait to see the next update on Echo (Misty).
Caspian and Aragon
Caspian and Aragon were born here at the center to mothers who came from a feral herd in Eastern Kentucky. They have been buddies from the beginning, and we are so happy that they were adopted together to continue that buddy connection. These guys were adopted by a lovely couple who have big plans for these sweet boys. As you can see they are fitting right in in their new home. We couldn't be happier!
