Horses & Donkeys

hibouanahata horse hibou

Hibou is the lead mare of the herd. She is a 16 year old grey Arab. She is affectionately known as the our "Anahata horse"or "the horse with a heart", as she has a perfectly shaped heart marking on her back end. Hibou is the French word for Owl. She has transformed from a wild, aggressive and distrustful demeanor on her arrival to that of a strong, sensitive and deeply caring horse.

Raven a 13 year old Quarter Horse cross, is the lead gelding of the herd. He carries "black horse wisdom" and is a gifted shaman and healer. He and Koko were rescues from the slaughter house.

Koko is a 12 year old sooty brown Quarter Horse gelding. He is very much the trickster and joker. This goofy face occurred spontaneously from him as I was wishing I had a photo of a horse making funny faces.

Caribou is a beautiful 9 year old Paso Fino gelding. He loves to play and will turn anything into a great game of fun. His favorite game is taking the key out of the ignition of the ATV or tractor.

Bob is a 18 year old Quarter Horse gelding. He loves playing and swimming in water as well as giving and receiving hugs. He enjoys and even insists on being involved in the training of the other horses.

Naomi is a 12 year old Miniature Horse mare with a lot of hair. She loves people, especially children. Not to be underestimated by her small size, she invokes powerful emotions and deep transformation within people.

Bella satoriBella Satori
Bella is an 11 year old Quarter Horse mare. She adores the healing work with humans so much so that we changed her name from Bella to Bella Satori to reflect her healing nature. Satori is the Japanese word for insight or awakening.

Velvet is a 16 year old Hackney Pony who demands total freedom. Through her freedom she in turn provides a sense of playfulness, love, trust and nurturing.

Diamond is a 9 year old Quarter Horse. When Diamond initially arrived at AHC she was too wounded emotionally to facilitate healing work with people. She has changed remarkably and is now an emotionally strong and a deeply caring horse who loves to do the FEEL work.

Merlin is an 10 year old Hanoverian Thoroughbred gelding. Merlin is a graceful, strong and kind horse who loves to learn. He embraced the FEEL work fully since his arrival in the spring of 2011.

Zahara Zahara
Zahara is a confident, insightful 7 year old Paso Fino mare. She comes from a lineage of FEEL horses who work at liberty with humans. She loves life as well as guiding and helping others freely.

Kota is a 7 year old Quarter Horse gelding. He spent the first four years of his life in a stall prior to arriving at Anahata Horse Centre in the spring of 2011. He is enjoying learning to be a horse and a free spirit.

Molly is a 10 year old Standard Bred who joined our herd in February 2012. She is an off the track pacer with great gratitude for her new life. She is endlessly loving, patient and wise. Molly is that perfect horse you dream of who always keeps you safe and can trail ride anywhere with you happily and alone, even on busy roads.

Walker Walker
Walker is a 23 year old Tennessee Walker. She was a western gaming horse for most of her life. She joined our herd in June 2012 tired and was struggling severely with the heaves. The sparkle has returned to her eye and she is breathing easier after receiving herbal cleanses, many CranioSacral treatments and roaming on fresh pasture. She is a radiant and beautiful addition to our herd.

Blazer Blazer
Blazer is a 19 year old Clydesdale Quarter Horse cross. He is stunningly handsome, adorable and lovable. He is a wise horse with a deep understanding and caring for humans. He is a joy to be with at all times.

Daisey the donkeyDaisy
Daisy is extremely patient, affectionate and deeply caring. She loves to chase away the wolves at night and can sometimes be heard bellowing off in the distance in the middle of the night.

Jacquie the donkeyJacquie
Jacquie is shy around people. She has transformed from once being a dog and cat "killer" to peacefully laying by their side sharing a special moment together on a warm sunny day.

Horse Ancestors

Rusty has earned his wings! He became a horse ancestor after over 36 years of being a horse here on earth. In many ways we feel his presence more deeply as a horse ancestor. He lives in our hearts forever.

Axel is now enjoying his time with Rusty as a horse ancestor. He was a noble character with a strong heart and immense compassion. He had performed dressage, eventing, jumping and racing. He ended his years as a magnificent therapy horse at Anahata Horse centre. We are honoured to have had him here with us during his last years.

Wild Elkie

Affectionately known as "Elkie", she is our resident lone elk. She has joined our herd of horses and resides with them year round. For those who wish to connect with her, she is a willing and insightful teacher.

Cat Tangerinne photo Tangerine
She looks like a cat but based on her wacky personality we're not actually sure what she is.

cat Cupcake Cupcake
Mysteriously showed up in our barn one morning. The barn is no place for her. She is definitely a house cat through and through.

cat Alice photo Alice
Alice is our sole barn cat due to the fact that she will not tolerate any other felines in her barn! On the other hand, she sat on my hands and "helped" while I was giving a healing treatment to one of the pigs.
