Lily George, a Henley High School student, recently took Flynn under her wing for her Senior Project. The pure black, two and a half year old miniature gelding, was surrendered to the Large Animal Division this fall. Lily is no stranger to cart horse training. Her family already owns five mini horses. Lily and Flynn are working on light line driving and in-hand obstacles. Flynn has partiticpated in Kingsley Air Field Family Day. He has also appeared as a lump of coal in a local children’s Christmas carnival. Lily reports that Flynn did wonderfully at both events.
Lily is proud to be training a rescue horse for a future adoption. And the volunteers at the Large Animal Division are delighted to have this talented and dedicated horsewoman’s help.

Twinkle Toes Lands on her New Feet
Twinkle Toes, a 12 year old jenny, arrived at our shelter with very, very long, curled hooves. She was covered in manure and suffering from frostbite. Cindi and Roger Boehner offered Twinkle a foster home. She has thrived under the Boehner’s care, and her adoption is pending. Twinkle now enjoys bubble baths, sipping apple juice, and having her ears rubbed. This little donkey has landed on her feet!
Annie was bred in 2010 by Jim West Quarter Horses near Bly, Nevada. She was sold at auction and moved to southern Oregon. In 2015 Annie and nine other horses were seized from a ranch in Klamath County. Annie arrived at the Klamath Animal Shelter/Large Animal Division suffering from malnutrition. She was also grieving over the loss of her six month old foal.
Annie did recover and she participated in the 2015 Pegasus Project. Her trainer was Jasmine Cyphert. She was adopted by a northern California family at the Pegasus Project auction and then continued her training at Seal Rock Stables with Jasmine. In March 2016, Annie moved to northern California and began working with her owner and a local trainer, Denise Whiting.
In July 2016, Annie’s owners were injured while riding her – in separate accidents. Annie moved to a nearby ranch in November to further her foundation skills with trainer Brian Drake. She now gathers cows for Brian and is his demonstration horse when he provides riding instruction. Annie’s owners visit weekly to groom her and watch her progress. Annie loves to work and she is doing what she was born to do.
These are horses that we helped who have moved on to their forever homes!
