Success Story Wednesday: Indy and Believer


Here are our recent success stories, Indy and Believer!

Indy just got adopted last week. You can see him here with his new mom (don’t they look happy together)! Indy was one of 57 horses taken in through law enforcement due to abuse and neglect. We’re just thrilled that he finally found his forever home with Susan!

Believer is the paint horse out in the pasture with his new pasture mates. His mother was seized due to abuse and neglect and he was born in TBAR. Now, as a well behaved three-year-old he has finally found his new home too!

Thank you to all of the TBAR volunteers that fed, cared for, and helped socialize and train these beautiful horses so they could find their forever home! And many thanks to their new families for opening their hearts and pastures!

Success Stories: Egan

This is handsome little gelding was found by Washington County Sheriff and turned over to T-Bar when no owner claimed him.

Egan was rehabilitated in a wonderful TBAR foster home who decided that they were the right fit for his forever home so they decided to adopt.

Egan is now living the good life with his new family. We’d like to thank Nic for taking such great care of Egan and for giving him the forever home he deserves!


Success Story: Grayheart


Grayheart was rescued with a large group of horses as a baby. Her foster home worked with her and taught her to trust and love people. Then Amanda and Greg met her and decided to adopt. They work with her and are training her to ride. Hooray for Grayheart and her new family! 

Success Story: Skywalker

Skywalker’s foster home intended to work with him and find him a new home but in the end, they fell in love with him and decided to adopt! We call these foster failures and even though it sounds negative, this is the best kind of failure. You fail to adopt them out but you decide to love them forever and never let them go. Who else out there is a foster failure?? I am!


Success Stories: Shawnee

This week’s Success Story is all about Shawnee!


Horses like Shawnee don’t come along every day. She is a rare and beautiful snow-flake red roan Appaloosa with four white stockings. Like so many of T-Bar’s adoptable horses, Shawnee was taken from her owner due to abuse and neglect and was very skinny when she was taken in by T-Bar. She was placed in a wonderful T-Bar foster home where she received the nutrition, attention and TLC needed to rehabilitate her into the the loving lady she has become.



Shawnee, now named Pinky, was understandably a bit shy and nervous in her new foster home. But with some time and patience, she began to trust again. She remembered round pen work and tried very hard to please her foster. With T-Bar’s foster-to-adopt equine fostering option, Karlene was able to spend some time working one on one with Pinky making sure that they were the perfect match before making her commitment to adoption. After spending some time getting to know and work with this gorgeous girl, Karlene decided it was time to make Pinky a permanent part of her family.

Pictured is Pinky with her new adoptive mom, Karlene! Here’s what she has to say about this wonderful mare:

 Hi T-bar folks. Just wanted to say thank you for the privilege you have granted me by permitting me to give your Shawnee her forever home. She is a sweet little mare and as you can see we are enjoying our ground lessons very much. We look forward to seeing you all on the trail someday soon.

Horse Success Stories: August 2013



Junebug came to TBAR as a result of an abuse case. Her companion did not survive, but Junebug fought to live. She is a sweet horse that deserves the love and tender care that her new home will give her for the rest of her life.  The scars on her body are evidence of her ‘life experiences’, but Junebug’s forever home can see her inner beauty and survivor’s Soul.




This is is Sheik!  He is a wonderful gelding Arabian that will be best friend and companion for his new adoptive Mom and Dad. He’s a lucky boy.  Congrats Sheik and your new family!
