Available for adoption
Ebony is a POA pony mare in her late teens - early
twenties. She is safe to ride, not spooky, crossties well, good for vet
and farrier, loads well, utd, and is a super easy keeper. Ebony does
have a crabby side when eating and will threaten to bite. Ebony would do
best in an experienced home where children would be supervised around
her until she learns her routine. Would make a nice w-t, lead-line,
trail, or companion pony. Ebony's adoption fee is 300.00 more pictures
and other available horses at www.neernorth.org

submitting a Featured Horse available for adoption, please e-mail email@example.com This is a free service for
was adopted through SHHR in 2001. We adopted him before ever
seeing him. He was a PMU foal, born on a large farm in Canada
as a byproduct. Hundreds of mares were bred, so that a hormone
could be collected from their urine. The foals were generally
taken to auction or slaughter once the summer was over, and Gina
Brown of Spring Hill Horse Rescue wasn't going to let that happen.
These were beautiful, healthy babies. 2001 was SHHR's second
PMU rescue, and they wanted to save as many foals as possible.
Due to pre-adoptions and lots of hard work, they were able to save
over 90 foals! Remington was one of them. Sadly, the
other half of the foals on the farm were sold for meat.
Remington was only 4 months when we adopted him. Meeting him
was so exciting.
Now, he's 12 years old! He's still just a big baby. He
is about the most playful horse I have ever met. Remington is
smart, healthy and loves people. He'll be mine forever :)

Prince Fluffy Kareem
(rescue), Cairo, Egypt
resident tail-eater, was quite a "fat" rescue compared to many others,
and we thought he would put on weight very quickly. However, the first
months he was here he barely ate anything but chaff and hay, probably
due to ulcers, and thus got a nice gut but not much muscle. Now however
he is coming along very nicely!
About Us: Prince
Fluffy Kareem is the name of a cheeky grey stallion with an affinity for
food and cute mares. Having grown up in the shadows of the pyramids in
Cairo, Kareem spent his life working as a pyramid horse, taking foreign
tourists and locals for rides around the pyramids and the surrounding
desert. Little did he know that he would one day become the symbol of
the Pyramid horses’ difficult lives, have his own Facebook page with
more than 20 000 followers and be loved by “fluffeteers” all over the
Marte from Norway first met Kareem in June 2011, he was severely
emaciated and dehydrated and suffered from babesiosis (equine malaria).
It was love at first sight, and that same day Kareem was brought to the
stable where Egyptian stable manager Sherif had been taking care of
Marte’s first rescue mare, bought one month earlier. Two days later, a
British woman made a Facebook page for Kareem to follow his progress.
Nobody expected how big it would become.
The Facebook page attracted many horse enthusiasts due to the horrendous
condition Kareem was in, and many wrote asking how to donate money. The
donations enabled the team to buy supplies to go around to neighbouring
stables to clean saddle sores, and to do the first Saddle Pad project,
producing saddle pads for local horse owners.
1.5 years later, Marte and Sherif run the PFK stable with 13 horses, of
which 11 are rescues. Together with Hungarian Sofia, as well as Emma
Thompson (the “UK office”) and Sue Foley (the “Australian office”) they
run what is now known as “PFK” (Prince Fluffy Kareem). In addition to
stabling rescues, PFK foster other working horses that need rest and
treatment for various issues, run clinics where local horse owners bring
their horses for treatment and have made three editions of custom made
saddle pads for the horses with horrendous saddle sores.
They have organized “The Fluffy Feet Farrier Project” where Australian
vet and farrier Dr. Jude Mulholland visited to train local farriers and
teach about laminitis, as well as “the Fluffy Tooth Fairy Project”,
where Australian equine dentist James Sheppard came to train Sherif in
On the schedule for the next months are another visit from Dr. Jude, a
neuter-and-spay project for the area’s stable cats as well as continuing
the frequent clinics.
