Erika is a wonderful person and in the 6 months that I have known her has saved so many sweet horses and gave them a new life with their adoptive family.
Wrangler came into our lives just a few months ago and cannot imagine life on our farm without him. He is the most loving and appreciative horse I have ever met. Wish I could adopt more horses from Erika. I highly recommend Grune Heidi Farm for your next horse.
I adopted my horse, Flair, from Grune Heidi and Erika and they did such a great job with her! A total sweetheart saved from the kill pen! I'm so glad this rescue does what it does or else I never would have found her!
Erika Gilbert of Grune Heidi Farm is the best. The rehab and re-home she does by giving the horses from kill pens a second chance is absolutely fantastic.
I only wish I could help her more but I do what I can with donations. I love seeing the transformations and love the happy endings when the horses get the perfect homes.
The work and dedication that Erika Gilbert puts into the rescue of the horses is truly amazing. You see the results each and every time one of her rescues is adopted. Not only does she rescues them from the kill pens but she makes sure they are going to good homes where they can finally feel loved and appreciated.
GHFR truly is a labor of love. We were lucky to be able to have a wonderful tour of their facility with Erika and meet our beautiful filly, Doodles (known on the page as Shortcake). We met some of the current rescues and listened to their individual stories of heartbreak to triumph in the horse slaughter/rescue pipeline. Erika's hard work and dedication is admirable. She is passionate, knowledgeable, and honest. This is so much more than a rescue or a place to adopt your new best friend, this is a place of hope and new beginnings.
I adopted my mare ‘Joy’ from this rescue 2 years ago and couldn’t be happier with this horse. She was well cared for and is sound. A friend of mine also adopted from here and she too loves her horse. Erika is passionate about this cause and puts everything she has into these horses, all you have to do is visit. I’ve visited other local rescues that were more of a ‘business’...owners with cute cowboy hats on and drove new trucks...this gal with buy feed before putting gas in her aging truck if made to choose. #1 rescue. No doubt about it.❤️
I've had the pleasure of knowing Erika personally the past 17 years. The passion and commitment to these horses goes far beyond a job for her. She pours every bit of her life into her rescue and it speaks for itself in the amazing rehab efforts and results! Rehoming these beauties is the best gift she can give them! Adopt your dream!!!
I've known Erika Gilbert for many years. The dedication and determination Erika and Grune Heidi Farm Inc. puts into each one of these saves is truly amazing! Long hours, hard work and lots of love go into the process and the end results are something Erika and GHF can be proud of. Erika does an amazing job rescuing and rehabilitating these beautiful creatures and giving them a second chance at a real and happy life! The before and after pictures tell the story very well!
Erika is efficient and effective in her approach to equine rescue. She does a wonderful job of rehabilitating horses, and has a proven track record of placing them in qualified homes once they have completed their recovery. A hands-on, hardworking equine rescue!
I have had the pleasure to be following Grune Heidi Farm Rescue for several years waiting for the right companion for me. Well, I found him and he's coming to his new home tomorrow! Ericka at Grune Heidi Farm Rescue has been wonderful with the process. Their compassion and dedication to helping these fur babies get a second chance in life touches ones heart deeply. Thank you for rescuing Shade. I will love him always and he will have a good home for the rest of his life. I will always support Grune Heidi Farm Rescue!
It was an honor and an absolutely privilege to meet Erika at her farm today. She is professional, extremely knowledgeable and has incredibly high expectations when it comes to her horses care. She knows exactly what she is doing and has a huge heart. From the minute I met her, I could tell how much she loves each of these horses and how passionate she is about them. The transformation of the abused and neglected horses is unbelievable. If you are looking for a place to donate to animals, look no further. This group is very deserving of the support it gets. Erika’s compassion and dedication to improving horses' lives is truly admirable. What an awesome rescue group Grune Heidi is, and what an angel of a woman Erika is! THANK YOU for all that you do!
What can we say about Grune Heidi rescue??? Well, quite frankly... they’re AMAZING. The love and dedication, the hard work, and the beauty of not only the horses, but the farm, is truly a testament to Erika and her team. Each person we have encountered there has been a pleasure! I’m in awe at how Erika has transformed these beautiful creatures who were once at kill auctions into magnificent, kind, regal horses with the most beautiful, glowing coats I’ve ever seen. Our Spice and Copper are just stunning and we could not be happier. Thank you!
Ive been volunteering for over 3 years and i LOVE it here. Erika has taught me so many wonderful things and i learn more and more everyday.
Grune Heidi is where miracles happen. Erika almost singlehandedly has created a utopia for what some have tried to throw away. She has done this with knowledge and elbow grease not to mention a huge heart. It may not be fancy, yet the results speak for themselves.
Erika and Grune Heidi Farm are setting the example of what a reputable rescue looks like. I am happy to be a proud supporter of this rescue and of all the animals that have had the opportunity to come through her barn doors to find a new beginning! ❤️
Truly a blessing to the equine community. The love and premium care given to the rescues knows no bounds.!! Would highly recommend supporting and adopting from this wonderful rescue !!!
This is a wonderful rescue. Erika does an outstanding job finding, rehabbing and re-homing the horses. Any horses needing medical care receive it promptly. A horse is lucky to come here!
Grune Heidi Farm is a fantastic rescue. They take superb care of all their rescue horses, getting them the medical care and attention that they need. They make sure to provide a safe environment for the horses and provide high quality feed. Any horse is lucky to get to this rescue!
I visited a few months ago and was immediately impressed by the love and dedication Erika has for these beautiful horses. I love this rescue!
I have adopted two very special horses from Grune Heidi. This is an incredible farm that saves the wonderful, smart, personable, and athletic American Saddlebred breed. They work tirelessly to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome these amazing horses. I will continue to support their efforts in every way!
I try to volunteer at Grune Heidi Farm when my schedule allows which is about once every other week. I love going to the farm to see the horses and Erika. Erika is always welcoming and the farm is always clean.
Grune Heidi Farm rescue does such wonderful work in saving the horses from the kill pens and THEN rehabbing them to be the beautiful horse partners that they are meant to be.
These folks in my opinion go above and beyond to help the rescued horses get back into shape,and find a home that is right not only for the horse,but the person adopting.
