Our mission statement is "rescuing one mini one day at a time " we run a Horse Haven for laminitic minis or minis at risk through neglect.
Mini Ha Ha Horse Haven was created in April 2012 by husband and myself but as time as gone on it became apparent that there were many many little minis that needed our help and we have recently become a Charitable Trust so we can reach more horses and also try to empower people with knowledge about laminitis and also the special care that wee mini horses need. We also help owners re home and take in abandon , abused and neglected minis and ponys.
The the weekly cost just for basic needs being met like Hoof trimming, Dentist visits, worming, Hay and Chaff is $25-00 to $30 a week per horses depending on its size. Things like the vet, blood tests, worm count tests,Chiropractor treatments, halters, covers, feed bowls etc is not included in this weekly amount per pony. We estimate the cost of running the Haven currently for basic things is approx $35,000-00 a year
Mini Ha Ha Horse Haven is based in Fernside North Canterbury and is a safe place for miniature horses,ponies and donkeys that mostly are unwanted,abused, neglected, laminitic, cushings or abandon on property's that are rescued and come to The Haven to heal and rehab while we look for amazing forever homes when they are able to be adopted out however many will always live at the Haven due to being chronic laminitic sufferers. We specialize in Laminitis and have healed many many wee minis over the last nearly years and currently have 20 under our care.
It costs us over $59,000 a year to run the Haven and that is just the basics and doesn't cover the costs of vets or chiropractor treatments and the many unexpected cost that arise from having laminitic horses and Cushing Horses.
We would love the help of New Zelanders so that we can continue with our work which also focus's on empowering horse owners with the knowledge of how to care for a horse with Laminitis and Cushings and how to avoid it too.....
We help owners of all sized horses not just minis !!!!!
We also are very heavily involved in the community and especially eldery & youth helping making a difference in their life especially with so many youth suffering from anxiety and or mental health challenges.
We are a place of healing for not only horses but humans alike ....
