We are looking to find a home for a 15 year old, 14.3 hand Friesian/QH cross. He is a very stocky boy! His name was Gabriel but his current owner calls him Alfie. She adopted him from us and her plan was to train him as a driving horse, but he just is not comfortable driving alone. He has been doing well in arena work and has even done some low jumping (we would rather he not go to a home where he will be jumped a lot, however, as he has a shoulder injury that crops up when he is worked too … [Read more...]
Horses Who Need Homes
Horses who need homes that are not at Hanaeleh: We support adoption in all ways. We periodically post adoptable horses that are not at Hanaeleh to help struggling owners find good homes for their horses. Each horse listed on this page is not at Hanaeleh. Please contact the owners for more information.
Danny Boy is a 9 year-old, 16.3-hand bay Thoroughbred who needs a home! He is an off-the-track-Thoroughbred (OTTB). His registered name is El Huerfano, which means "The Orphan," because he was an orphaned foal. He is actually a great-grandson of Seattle Slew! (Which means he is related to our lovely Ruby.) He had 53 starts, with 9 wins. You can see his racing history HERE. You can view his pedigree HERE. He was only retired from racing about six months ago. His owner adopted him from the … [Read more...]

Parker is a 20 year-old chestnut Quarter horse who needs a home. He is currently at Baldwin Park Animal Shelter- this is the same shelter where we rescued Lou Dillon. He was found as a stray horse, wandering around Compton, CA. He was emaciated, had a growth on his genitals, horrible thrush in his back feet, and canker in his front feet. The shelter was able to perform a surgery in order to remove the growth and has been treating the thrush and canker in his feet. He has gained some weight but … [Read more...]
SAN DIEGO, CA: This is a story about a real life Black Beauty who needs to find his "Joe," or his final home. This is a horse who has worked hard for people for almost 30 years. This is a horse that we at Hanaeleh truly wish we had a place for, but we just don't have any open stalls, and so we are asking our network to see if someone else has a place for this very special horse. Raven is a registered Arabian gelding, and just turned 30 years old in April. He spent most of his life as a trail … [Read more...]
UPDATE: These horses are safe! The owner notified us that she found a person who will take all three horses, so they can all stay together! Thank you to everyone who shared the post- together we can help save them all! We are hoping the Hanaeleh network can make a miracle happen! There are three horses up in Taft, CA (near Bakersfield) who need homes. The owner is moving (she needs to be out by THIS SATURDAY- 4/24) and her trailer broke and cannot take them with her. These … [Read more...]
