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.
We were contacted by someone in Trabuco Canyon (south Orange County) who is looking to find a good home for Candy, a 14 year-old brown and white Paint mare. Candy is about 16 hands and is healthy and up-to-date on her vet/farrier care. Candy was given to her current owner when another family member could no longer keep her. Unfortunately, Candy is food aggressive, and is not getting along well with the person's other horse, who is now suffering. She would do well if she were in her own stall … [Read more...]

She will now get the care and love she needs to live out the rest of her life in peace and safety. Thank you … [Read more...]
We were contacted last week about a horse who needs a home. Remi is a 7 y/o Quarter horse who has been diagnosed with a bone chip and contusion in one of his legs. He needs several months, up to a year, before he will be sound and rideable again. His owner does not have the ability to care for him during that time. Remi does not have an adoption fee, but will need someone who is willing to take the time to rehabilitate him. We are hoping that someone might have a pasture or backyard available … [Read more...]
We were contacted by a woman who is trying to help a horse at her barn. The owner, an elderly woman, passed away, and no one wanted her horse. A woman at the barn offered to help find him a home. Jackson is a 20 y/o bay Arabian gelding. He is rideable, and was being ridden by his owner who was 70 years old, before she passed away. He is very sweet and loves attention. Jackson is missing some back teeth so he needs to eat pellets that have been soaked in water, but otherwise he is very … [Read more...]
