Facts about Briar Rose

  • Breed: Morgan Mix
  • Color: Bay
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Medium
  • Sex: Female
Briar Rose

was an immediate danger pony/small horse that ETMHD Rescue purchased to keep from going to auction. We were contacted by a group that does auction pulls about a pony that was at risk of being taken to the next sale. They asked if we could pay her "ransom" and take her in. We said of course and asked for others to help us raise the funds to save her.

Briar Rose was supposedly a child's horse who foundered this spring and the owner could no longer afford the board. A couple in a nearby town runs an ad in local websites stating they want to take in horses to graze down their land. What they really do is take free horses and sell them at the local auctions.

The couple notified the auction pull group that they were given this pony and because of its feet being bad they were willing to sell her to them for 350 rather than take her to the sale barn. We rescued her a week before the sale and are working on getting her feet in shape so we can her level or training. She is extremely sweet. Around 12-14 years old and is about 14hh. She may be part Morgan or Welsh Pony, we really have no idea.

This girl is a prime example of why you should NEVER GIVE A HORSE AWAY FREE TO A STRANGER - this girl with her messed up feet would have been headed to Canada or Mexico if we had not been able to help.

We will be evaluating her after her feet are in shape and will determine her level of training but she handles very well and was supposedly a child's horse (which makes this even more sad).

We are a 501c3 rescue that is dedicated to helping miniature horses, donkeys and mules to help prevent them from going to auction. Our goal is to help people understand how to care for minis and know that we are here to help. Donations are used to feed, shelter, provide medical care, transport, farrier costs and site visits. We do not receive any grants so we rely on your help. Together we can do big things for these little equines.

We want you to come and see what this little equines are all about and help spread the word about miniatures in need.
