Meet the animals that grace Wind Horse Sanctuary
Each member of the herd has their own unique personality and gifts to offer...
Blue is an 11 year old gorgeous Paint with one blue eye and one half blue and brown eye. The Native Americans called horses like this 'Spirit Horses' due to their different colored eyes. He is quite the character adding a fun, playful and curious element to the herd. Built for speed and called a 'race car' by Tara's farrier, he is definitely impressive to see him gallop at full tilt. Blue loves to be close to those around him with his sweet, friendly personality.
Comanche is a gorgeous 13 year old Spanish Mustang who was taken out of a wild herd in Nevada when he was a year old. Small , yet sturdy Comanche is a wise old soul who can bring folks to the depths of inner transformation. Mellow and easy going by nature he also possesses a slight stubborn quality that can be empowering to work with. As he was born and raised in the wild till he was one, he still possess that special wild, intelligent quality that Mustangs have but with an endearing sweetness to him. He has a solid, grouding presence which is healing to be around!
Xaria (at the time of writing) is a 5 month old adorably sweet, intelligent and fun little Australian Shepherd puppy that came into Tara's life on January 20, 2016. Although Leilani is missed, Xaria's is a beautiful healing presence who's name literally means 'Gift of the Heart'. If you come to visit the Sanctuary you will get to experience some puppy bliss too! One of Xaria's favorite past times is herding the horses.
Spirit is an 18 year old Arabian gelding who has a very sweet, inquisitive personality to him. He's sensitive and easy to work with yet sometimes has a flair for the dramatic, Arabian style. Spirit has a famous sire whose name is Ali Jamaal. He has had a variety of names with his birth name being Hot Jamalee, his nickname 'Baby' and the newest incarnation being 'Spirit' which he embodies quite well! With the beautiful white unicorn color and blond mane, he possesses a certain grace to him that will charm your heart.
Daisy is the newest addition to Wind Horse Sanctuary. She is an 18 year old Haflinger who’s mother was originally from Austria. Daisy was a lesson horse for many years and recently had an injury which prevented her from continuing her previous career. She has a wonderfully sweet temperament with a slight stubborn streak which is typical among Haflingers. She is now happily holding the role of lead mare role among the males at Wind Horse Sanctuary!
In Loving Memory
Leilani, playfully called the 'Hawaiian snow dog' was a beloved companion to Tara for seven years. She was quite the independent, intelligent, sweet and special creature, true to her Siberan Husky lineage. Her spirit passed on September 18, 2015 but lives on at Wind Horse Sanctuary.
