2021 Gimme Shelter Challenge


Update June 7, 2020:

Fortune continues to shine in her groundwork sessions. She enjoys working and getting some exercise. She is currently fine-tuning her work in the round pen at liberty, going over obstacles and focusing and maintaining attention during classes.

Update October 4:

Fortune has progressed right along in her training and now we are just waiting for her to grow up. She is cute as could be with quite the personality. Fortune will be in our 2021 Gimme Shelter Challenge pool of horses. Until then she is being handled and exposed to the necessary things on the ground to have her prepared for the future.

Update May 11:

Fortune had the opportunity to participate in a 60 day ground working challenge through the Forever Foundation and succeeded with flying colors.  She has now had experience with trailer loading, tying, farrier prep, and much more.  Fortune enjoys being groomed on and getting attention from people.

Update March 21:

Fortune has started halter training and is progressing quickly.  She is learning to lead and take instruction on how to move her feet in a suggested direction.  Fortune also has had a basic start on some ground obstacles, including a bridge and ground poles.  She still can be a little spit fire and is very athletic.

Update June 26:

Fortune is a beautiful little sorrel filly out of Fiona. She was born here at THS ranch on 5/17/18 just a couple of days before our May auction where she received a three-year sponsorship to see her into the 2021 Gimme Shelter challenge pool of horses as a three-year-old. She is very friendly and enjoys lots of love from staff and volunteers. Fortune does appear to be changing color to either a gray like her dam or to a red roan.

Fortune was born shortly after the morning mucking between 9:00 and 10:00 a.m on May 17 and appears to be very strong and healthy. She arrived as the tent was going up for this year’s auction and how can she not bring THS great luck at the fundraiser! Please enjoy her photo journey which begins with Fortune just an hour or so old. I’m sure there will be many more coming as all the volunteers had their phones and cameras out. Fortune’s dam Fiona is feral mare and most likely a first time mom.
