Fundraising - Tack Sales, Horse Blankets and Whatnot.

Most of the money that runs HART Rescue is raised by selling horse tack and other animal related products.  Most of the tack is purchased used from other horse people but we also take donations from our generous followers of course all donations are completely tack deductible!!!  Please contact me if you have any tack you would like to sell, trade or donate to HART Rescue.  Don't be shy, we take everything regardless of condition, if we can't clean up or fix the item for resale we can salvage parts especially from horse blankets.

I get such a large amount of tack coming and going that it is too time consuming to keep a list here on the website so please email or call me to find out what we have in stock.  There is always a very large selection of all kinds of horse tack.  Everything is clean, in good repair and ready to put on the horse.

We get a large booth at the Canby Tack Sale two times a year so make sure to come and visit us in the Ely Arena at the same end as the food vendor and restrooms.

There is always a pile of tack here that is needing cleaned, sorted and priced and of course many MANY horse blankets that need to be scraped out so if you would like to volunteer an hour or so let me know and we can set up a time.

Mom and Baby

Mom and Baby

Mom is a little more refined than the other two black minis, of course since there was an adorable baby in the stall with her to capture all of my attention I didn't get very good photograph of her, sorry about that!  Anyway, Mom is very friendly and gentle, she will make a nice mini for anyone.  Baby is VERY SHY and had very little handling before arriving at HART.  Fortunately, this adorable duo is currently in foster care with a wonderful family that is teaching baby the essentials to be a good little horse.

Little Red One

Little Red One

Yeah I know, I'm terrible at coming up with creative names, with time I'm sure I'll come up with something better.  Red is VERY SHY and needs a lot of one on one attention.  She is sweet and willing so I'm sure it wouldn't take much to bring her around.  Yes, I know she is dirty, I took this photo before she received her "welcome to HART" brushing.

Huggy Bear

Little Black Pony with Locking Stifel

Little black pony with clubbed foot.  This sweet little FURBALL is a kind, gentle gal.  She has a clubbed foot that needs extra trimming to keep in check and severe locking stifles so if she runs around too much she will drag her hind leg for a little while.  This is not a painful condition and does not in any way inhibit her quality of life.

Lilapp (pronounced Lap)

Lilapp (pronounced Lap) was a stallion upon arrival at HART Rescue but we all know how I feel about stallions in my barn!  He has already been castrated and is recovering quite well.  Lilapp was very shy when he got here, would strongly avoid contact and shake with fear when caught.  I have been spending a lot of one on one time with the little bugger and he is warming up to people very quickly.  My niece is had decided to make Lilapp her senior project.  I believe her goal is to train him for in hand trail, in hand jumping, showman and halter, he will then be a very nice, adoptable little guy.
