I started my etsy shop " HardlyAbleStable " to help with the feed and veterinary bills on the rescue animals here at the farm after loosing my good job due to the economy.
Thank goodness for all the great buyers on etsy ! I have been able to keep the animals I have and also help foster and find forever homes for many more.
Most of the animal that stay here at the farm are considered un-adoptable for different reasons. They may be old, crippled or abused. I can not turn them away and they can live their lives out here.
I have always loved all animals. When I was young I was always bringing home stray dogs and cats or hurt wildlife to help. Thank goodness my Mom and Dad supported me! Now I have a small farm and try to take in any animal that needs help.
Ellie & Dazzle
Ellie She is a 35 inch tall mini horse. She came to Hardly Able Stable as a dumped pony when the DHL hub closed in my town of Wilmington, Ohio. She had been left by someone tied to a fence at a friends farm.
Dazzle He is Ellie's foal. I did not know she was in foal, I thought she was just fat, and had a great surprise on night !
Spanky He is a 27 year old Quarter Horse. He had broken his pelvis and can not be ridden but enjoys life here at the farm.
Stripper He is a 27 year old retired lead horse from the throughbred race tracks. He still enjoys an occasional hack through the woods.
Boo She is a 7 year old Maine Anjue Cow. She was beaten by her owner when she was a baby. A friend of mine bought her not knowing if she would live or die and brought her to my farm. She is fine now.
Wilie He is a Blank Angus Steer. He is pretty much blind, we think he can see shadows. He was a slaughter house reject and a friend bought him and brought him to my farm. He and Boo are now best friends.
Suzie She was rescued from a kill animal shelter.
King He was tied his whole life with a logging chain. He was about 10 years old when he came to live here at the farm. No more chains ! He has the run of the farm now.
Rescue found on road 2006.
