AH HA.....a person from Phillips. My aunt and uncle live there and my grandparents are buried there so we visit often. When I was just a kid (Oh so many, many, MANY years ago) I took riding lessons in Lugerville. The town has changed a lot over the years but still a great place to be.
Rosie was always one of my favorites. Thanks for sharing the pictures.
Spring is right around the corner!
It's so great to see Rosie! She is as gorgeous as ever, and I will tell Pride she says hello. :) Thanks so much for the update Gena!!
Rosie looks so beautiful...as do your other horses! Thanks for sharing!
Miss Copper Robin (Rosie) - 16 yrs. $400- Miss Copper Robin, or Rosie as we have always known her by, is a registered APHA mare. She is sound, healthy and broke to ride. She has been used as a lesson horse as well as trail riding. She has been ridden both English and Western, but mostly Western. Rosie is current on all her shots, wormers and trims. She leads, loads, ties, is good for the vet and farrier and gets along well with her pasture mates. We have known Rosie for the past 5 years and also know her original donors who live in the neighborhood, so we know where Rosie has been and what she has done for a good share of her life. Rosie stands at about 15 hands tall and will make someone a great trail or arena partner. Attached Images
Just lost my QH last week. He was 28 and I had him for 11 yrs. Looking for a new horse, thought it would be great to adopt one. I have 2 other horses I board- 28 yr old Mustang- broke and trailrides and a QH paint gelding. I live south of Pittsburgh. What is the process of adoption and in what area of PENNA is rosie?
Karen, not sure what PENNA is, but Rosie is here in Wisconsin. I also posted the thread that is pinned at the top which explains the process of adoption. Our policies and procedures are clearly laid out not only here, but on our website which we hope people look at before coming here to the forum. The process of adopting a horse from MHWF is simple, go to our website and print out the application. Send that in along with a $5.00 processing fee and photos of your farm. Or you can fill out the application on-line and email that along with a $10.00 processing fee. Once the application is received we will get in touch with you via telephone and will answer any questions you might have, whether they be about our program and policies or a particular horse in our program. If after that phone call both parties feel like one or more of the horses is a possible match, we will set up an appointment for you to meet the horses. If the horse is a match, you may choose to adopt it and take it home after a little paperwork. 1. You must have an application on file to inquire about adoption horses, no exceptions. 2. You must call during our posted hours and not on off hours. Hours are posted on our website 4 pm - 9 pm weekdays and anytime on weekends. 3. You must set an appointment via telephone with us before planning on coming to the MHWF farm. Calling or emailing to let us know you are coming is not setting an appointment and will not be honored. We try our best to make adoption as easy and fun as we can make it. It is for that reason that we have set these policies. Everyone at MHWF has a regular daytime job and we must make good use of our limited time as this is a volunteer job and the people who take their time off to spend with the horses do it because they love it and believe in it. Thank you!
Hey I want to give a bump to this thread for this beautiful and qualified mare. I am shocked she is still available.
Is this mare still available. I am interested in her. Please send me contact information.
Here is the contact information:

How is she with kids?
Do you mean for riding or just handling? As far as handling, she is fine with kids, but she is not a kid's horse as far as riding goes.
Also adopted?? Wow, spring has sprung!
Rosie did get adopted and went to the same home as Cheyenne. I had scheduled my lunch break from work today so that I could help with loading and get adoption day photos, but unfortunately the adopters were quite late and my work break time had passed, so I have no adoption day photos.
Scott can update Rosie's thread with more info as soon as he has time.
Apparently Scott is not allowed to touch the camera, lol.
Congratulations, lucky adopters of two horses!
Rosie and her new adopter!
