Here at Missouri Forget-Me-Not Horse Rescue and Sanctuary, we believe that every horse should be loved and valued. We have horses that are ridable that are available for adoption, as well as non-ridable horses that can fill the much-needed job of “companion,” acting as friends for other horses. Companion horses are available for adoption or foster. We also have horses that are permanent residents of the Sanctuary that you can sponsor.
If you would like to come out and see our horses, just contact Connie at 573-216-3838 to arrange a visit. Visitors are always welcome.
Our adoption process is comprehensive and designed to assure the best possible match between horses and adopters. Horsemanship skills, level of training, inherent personality, and the ability to properly care for a horse are all considered.
To adopt a MFMN horse, review our adoption policy, and complete and submit the adoption application, and go through the approval process. We'll schedule a time when you can come meet the horse, and observe your interactions with the horse, including riding if the horse is trained to do so. We want to make sure that you are a good fit for the horse, and that the horse is comfortable with you as well.
PERMANENT RESIDENT HORSES
Ghost, pictured at right, is one of our many permanent resident horses. When we took Ghost to MU Equine Clinic they told us she had multiple issues and advised us to just take her home and keep her comfortable. Well.... Ghost must have not gotten the memo! She looks great and has no plans to change anything in her life. She strolls around the yard. Snacks in the barn and even goes down the road a bit to visit and nibble grass. Just have to love her spirit!
Permanent Resident horses generally cannot be adopted, due to age, illness or injury. They will live out their natural lives, as long as they can be treated to alleviate any suffering. When they let us know that it is time to say good-bye, they are humanely euthanized by a veterinarian. Because these horses are often with us for many years, they become dear to our hearts. They enjoy being petted and loved on by the volunteers. These horses could use a sponsor. Will you help?
