Shireman Homestead is a non-profit 501c3 that provides homes for animals in need. The farm then rehabilitates and provides any special care until they are ready to be rehomed in their new homes that the farm helps to find for them. Shireman Homestead also attends many different events with our barn yard friends. Our barn friends help with many therapeutic and rehabilitative needs in the lives of many people. We have ongoing educational services at the farm.
Now visiting with our barn friends / Please call to make an appointment
This team of miniature horses, Max (white) and Dozer (sorrel), is where it all began. I had never known about the history of the miniature horse, but I had love in my heart for my barn yard friends. The more I researched the historical events of the miniature horse, it became my passion and now my mission. It is a part of the visit at the farm to share the historical facts of the miniature horses with all of our visitors so the stories will go on. I have found that there are many others that had no knowledge of their history. Dozer and Max have an easier lifestyle now in their golden years with their re-homed new families. They are first horses for their new little children friends.
