Misfit acres was there when two aging, starved arabian mares needed them immediately. There wasn't any time to find other options, they needed to be removed the day I found out about it. Misfit acres was there. Even though at the time they weren't set up for two more hungry horses they knew the timing of the rescue was top priority for these two horses. The body score on the one mare was maybe 1.5 and the other 2.5 and I might be generous here. Jodi made room for the two mares and took great care of them. She found a great home for the younger of the two and kept the oldest one to live out her days there. Without Misfit acres these horses would not have lasted another week without suffering permenant damage. Their horses always look good and happy. These are great people who put forth more than they will ever get in return. Honest, Humble and Hardworking is how I would describe them. Value of their service cannot be measured for the lives of the horses they have helped.

I've known Bruce and Jody for around 6 years. Our pony Shadow is now a resident of Misfit Acres, along with her friend Dixie from Dakota Ridge Stables. Bruce and Jody are able to give these ponies the medical and farrier care that they need, while providing a safe forever home. The horses and ponies are always kept in the best condition possible, and couldn't ask for a better life.
