Quotes I had a nice little Standardbred who treated me well in the racing game, ( Cruisinart ), he brought me to the pinnacle of the sport locally and gave me everything he had. When he started to lose his touch I retired him immediately. I wanted to find him a nice forever home in return for how good he was to me racing. I got in touch with Morningstar Acres who came highly recommended from a fellow Horsemen. After messaging Gisele, she came off as very friendly, compassionate and sincere to our situation. And when we met her and her staff in person the same thing rang true. They are a top notch caring organization. Everything she told me and promised she delivered on. She trained him, and matched him up with a great home. All along the way keeping us updated. And we were also introduced to his new adopted family. And they in turn keep us updated on how Art is doing. If you are looking for a great place to retire an old equine friend. Look no farther then Gisele and Morningstar Acres. Quotes

Quotes We are glad that we were able to adopt Groovy for James through Morningstar Acres. We adopted our Bernese Mountain Dog as well through "rescue". Groovy is a perfect match for James, and a perfect companion for Mocha, our other older Standardbred. When Groovy gallops, it is obvious by his bow legs that he was a cart racer. This is awesome in visual contrast to Mocha's traditional gallop. Being able to save Groovy, and giving him a second chance to compliment the lives of others is a blessing, thanks to Morningstar Acres. Quotes

great for finding a match that works

Quotes As both a veterinarian and owner and breeder dealing with Standardbreds, I have always been aware of their versatility, eagerness to please, and great manners. To have met someone like Giselle and her team has been a wonderful experience for me. I recently had the great fortune to find Giselle through others who have used her service, and I have been nothing but impressed throughout the process. She helped me find a wonderful loving home for a gelding we raised, whose only fault is not being able to trot fast enough to race! These horses don't all make the races, and many more do race and then need retirement homes. When you love each of your horses like we do, knowing they have a great future beyond racing is like nothing else. Thank you Giselle for being such a great friend and caring advocate for these wonderful horses. I would recommend Giselle and her team to anyone looking to place a standardbred in a new home, or anyone with a loving home to offer. Quotes

Quotes I have used Morning Star Acres twice already, & both times have proved to go extremely smoothly. I've never dealt with a more thorough & helpful horseperson in my years; one whom displays a true concern for the horses & their well being. She was more than willing to go the extra mile to give me the opportunity to home my 'dream' horse. I absolutely cannot say enough good things about Gisele, her help, & her service offered - free service at that which, of course, attracts many more people. All around it's been a fabulous experience & I look forward to one day have the chance to meet the crew in person. Thank You Gisele & friends for my Standardbreds - there is nothing like them!

Quotes I am so pleased to have found the horse of my dreams. A huge thank you to Gisele, Christi and the Fosters for making this possible. I understand the many hours spent in rehoming an animal and the care taken to find great homes. I was thrilled to find out that I was the 100th rehome. Owning a horse is new to me and I'm loving every minute of it! My mare, Busy, is just perfect and we have lots to learn together. I am looking forward to trail riding and doing some jumping with her in the near future. Again, thanks to everyone for their hard work in finding these horses their forever homes. Quotes

Quotes Gisele I am writing on behalf of our family, to thank you for all your hard work and patience in placing Dads horses. You have made the changes, we unfortunately, had to make go MUCH easier. knowing that the horses had good, loving, homes to retire to has made this so much easier on Mom. Dad was a horseman, through and through, but the well being of an animal came ahead of financial gain. He would have been pleased that families that truely wanted a horse to love have given his a home. Once again Thank You, this could not have happened without you and your families support of your service. On behalf of Kilkerran Farm Barrie Ferguson Quotes
