Blue

Blue

There is no mare more stunning at HSES than Blue. This mare – we believe to be approximately 10-16 years old – was again at the meat processor following a sale. As stunning as Blue is – she has ripped her hind leg at some stage and it has taken a long time to heal....

Shorty

HSES Shorty is a very tall 17hh THB Gelding with a racing name of Valley Mascot – although registered he had no races so no doubt Shorty felt that wasn’t his thing. Shorty arrived with an infected hind leg and just skin and bones. We asked for his surrender, owners...

Elvis

Elvis

This little pony arrived within a truckload of stallions (11) and 3 mares! Owned by a hoarder, we know little of his background other than he is an older pony. At some stage he has ripped his muzzle open on a fence – and although healed, he carries the scars. And with...

HSES Frankie probably one of our most stunning Sanctuary horses, arriving from the Echuca saleyards as a young gelding with a broken whither. While educated here at HSES, Frankie is nervous and has been retired to the Sanctuary. And of course he is our merchandise...
