Fiona (Princess Fifi)
Fiona is a very sweet 30+ year old mini rescue by FHHR from an auction in January of 2007. Fiona has a congenital condition called Kyphosis (a humped back). It has never seemed to cause her pain and she will sometimes even trot about the pasture when happy or excited! She has developed Cushings in her later years but keeping her clipped, groomed regularly and on medication, she is comfortable and happy. Princess Fifi is a super love bug and enjoys cuddling; loves getting attention from children. Her current residence is an off site foster home where she is spoiled daily by her foster mom, Brenda and her pasture mate, FHHR adoptee, Jack.
Currently being fostered off-site by Brenda W.
Dawson, born in 1994, is a 16hh Thoroughbred, came to us in 2015 when he was retired from a rigorous lesson and jumping program. Dawson has a wonderful temperament and has been a very willing partner in the Equine-Assisted Learning and educational programs at the rescue. He had an eye removed last year but has adjusted quite well. He continues to be a well loved goofball at Freedom Hill.

Badger is an 18 year old, 14.2hh, chestnut and white paint gelding, with a bald face. Badger is a very sweet guy, former trail partner and kid's pony. Badger was diagnosed with EPM and Lymes Disease and was very wobbly. Owner had to make the hard decision to ask for help and give Badger up as they could not afford the multiple treatments needed to help Badger. FHHR asked our vet to do xrays to check his back and neck and also do bloodwork. Results showed very high titers for EPM and Lymes so we started him on 2 medications and then took him in to our rescue. He is still currently being treated for EPM and is making great progress!

River is a very handsome 19 year old Tennessee Walker gelding standing at 16 hands with lots of trail and arena experience.
