Gertie

Gertie is a dark bay (brownish-black) miniature mule who was born around the mid to late 1990s, as far as we know. She was rescued as a young animal from a horse farm, suffering from abuse and neglect, when the farm was closed by the Humane Society.

The horses who could be saved were taken to new homes but no one wanted Gertie, until a caring person who worked in animal welfare stepped forward. For 15 years, she led a happy healthy life with this caregiver, a few horses, and other animals. However, personal circumstances changed suddenly for her owner who sought a new forever home for her much-loved mule where she would be well-cared for.

We were very happy we were able to welcome Gertie in September 2014.
