Facts about Sunshine

  • Breed: Missouri Foxtrotter Mix
  • Color: Palomino
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large
  • Sex: Female
ADOPTED BY SOME LUCKY LADY!! What an absolutely stunning filly. Sunshine is an extremely gorgeous palomino filly with a blaze. While very shy, she is extremely intelligent. With a beautiful refined head, she is quite the eye catcher! Sunshine is 9 years old.

In February of 2012, Sunshine went to a professional trainer to get more consistent work on her training. She made great progress during this time! However, we have not had enough experienced volunteer trainers available to continue her training, and she would benefit from an experienced adopter or foster to bring her along. Once again, in February 2016, Sunshine has been sent to a trainer for 90 days. We are excited to see her progress - thus far we have had great reviews about her (end of March 2016). Sunshine has returned to SHARE and we are so pleased with her progress! She has a very nice soft foxtrot. She still needs an experienced gaited horse rider to continue to bring her along.

Sunshine's adoption fee is $500.

She is available for adoption in Illinois or within a 3-hour driving radius of Champaign County, Illinois.

About Society for Hooved Animal's Rescue and Emergency

About Our Rescue Group...

About Us

Our mission is to maintain the integrity, well-being, and health of hooved animals through education first.

SHARE is a nonprofit humane society established in 2005 in the Champaign area. We have investigators that cover a large portion of Illinois.

At SHARE, our goal is to help equines trapped in situations of abuse and starvation. It is also our wish as well to educate horse owners on how to properly care for their horses.

The humane society offers to help educate owners on the proper daily care and maintenance; vetting and hoof care as well as nutrition and emergencies. The society also rescues severely neglected horses and provides rehabilitation services and placement through adoption.

This is not an easy task; many volunteers are needed in order to provide this care and support. There are many people who are not aware of hooved animals that are abused and neglected. SHARE would like to inform people about this

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Requirements

1. You must live in Illinois or close neighboring state.
2. Must own the property where the horse will be kept.
3. Must provide a letter of recommendation from your veterinarian and one from your farrier if you are now a horse owner. If you do not have a farrier, a letter from another person will suffice.
4. You must visit the horse to see if you are a match with the particular horse you wish to adopt.
5. We will visit your facility to see the facility and your animals.
6. If you continue with the adoption, you will be required to pay an adoption fee which is set by the board of directors for each animal. We will continue to inspect the animal for two years.
7. If at any time the animal is not being properly cared for SHARE has the right to seize the animal.
8. You are NEVER allowed to sell the animal to slaughter. We ALWAYS have first right of refusal if you decide not to keep the animal.
9. You must keep the animal for at least two years or it reverts to SHARE.

Adoption Fees:

Adoption Fees vary from animal to animal depending on the skill sets of each individual horse, starting at about $450.00 dollars. Each individual animal will have the adoption fee posted on it's profile, or view our website!
