Pony 6x4


The hackney pony mare, pictured above, is one of 56 horses seized from a field in southeastern Minnesota in 2012, died of starvation. Brought to the U of M in a desperate attempt to save her, no amount of medical intervention could — extreme emaciation had taken too much of her. We will always remember this pony, and we are hell-bent on making her death one that matters.

The Minnesota Hay Bank’s year-end campaign is in full swing. From December 1- December 31, our goal is to raise $10,000 for certified Minnesota horse rescues:

  • Hightail Horse Ranch and Rescue (Hawley, MN)
  • MN Hooved Animal Rescue (Zimmerman, MN)
  • Sundown Horse Shelter (Hugo, MN)
  • This Old Horse, Inc. (Hasting,  MN)
  • Truhaven Ranch, Inc. (Winsted, MN)
