Stix is one of the favorite horses at EAD. He is big and unique. People love his spots. He works with lots of kids, and they relate to him because he is different just like them. People always want to fit in, whether it is at school or work, and quiet, level-headed Stix helps build confidence and self-respect.
Carm has been with us for 9 years. Her story is tragic. When she was being trained, they would tie her and beat her face with 2x4’s if she did some-thing wrong. When we got her, she would not let us touch her face, and she did not like men. Over the years, Carm has realized that we treat her with kindness and respect. She is the image of resili-ence and love. She is gentle and kind, perfect for people that are hurting.
George is 12 years old and was rescued from Hes-peria, MI. He lived in a herd of 42 horses and had very little contact with people. George is smart and curious. He has the habit of bobbing his head up and down as if giving you the answer “yes”. He is quick to like you and will follow people he trusts! This makes him a great therapy horse for people looking to build trust and respect.
Noel has been with us for 16 years. She is one of the only miniatures left of our herd. Over the years, her sweet personality has won over the hearts of young and old alike. She has been the mom to five, the latest one being Miracle. Noel is easy to keep and even easier to love.
Miracle, Miracle, Miracle, what can we say about you? You fit perfectly in our program. You are the cutest mini-mule, and your personality is like many that come to EAD. Your size makes it even more special because everyone can that you relate to anyone working with you. Being only 1 1/2 years old helps with your childlikeness. You and your mom (Noel) together make the perfect team for kids to see their relationship with their parents.
Cora was rescued 5 years ago along with her son. She came from Montague, MI. Cora was won in a poker game and left to stand behind a barn for many years. Her life has been full of love since she came to live at EAD. She is a sweet, loving and beautiful pony. Even though Cora is 28 years old, she doesn’t act her age. She is seen as the perfect size for those a little timid around the bigger horses. Lots of our clients relate to Cora’s story.
