Boone

SEX: Gelding BREED: Miniature Horse REGISTERED NAME:  
COLOR: Strawberry Roan MARKINGS:    
YOB: 2002 AGE: 18 HEIGHT: 9.1 WEIGHT: 280lb
LOCATION: Redmond ADOPTION FEE: $300 Online Adoption Application  

Boone is an 18 year old strawberry roan mini horse. He’s one of a group of four mini horses that were seized by animal control in March 2020. SAFE didn’t have space for new horses at that time, but we were able to line up a great adopter who took them all in. As they got healthy and stronger, it soon became obvious that four mini horses were more than their adopter could manage (especially at feeding time!!), so once again SAFE was asked to help. We were able to facilitate an adoption for one of the mini mares, and we took Boone into our rescued herd last week.

Boone doesn’t play well with other minis, so he’s best suited to be a companion for a bigger horse.

BOONE IS CURRENTLY PENDING ADOPTION

A Boone for us all!

A Boone for us all!

Boone has quickly become a volunteer favorite! This sweet little guy seems to be very adaptable to different situations and loves scratches and attention, especially if you have a snack for him! We have started doing a bit of groundwork with Boone and he has taken to it very quickly. This is one smart mini. He seems to enjoy having a job and has a lot of try and interest. Boone was turned out with Amelia for about a month and they did very well together. Amelia had to teach him a bit about manners, but they seemed to coexist quite well. We’ll be introducing him to some other regular sized horses soon!

Welcome Boone!

Welcome Boone!

This handsome little fella is another new addition to the SAFE family. Believe it or not, he’s already pending adoption!

Boone doesn’t play well with other minis, so he’s best suited to be a companion for a bigger horse. And if all goes well, he and one of the SAFE horses will be headed off to a great new home together! That’s all we’re going to say at the moment, but fingers crossed we’ll have some more good news to share very soon.
