The Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL) is searching for a home for two mini stallion siblings, who were surrendered by their previous family on Martha’s Vineyard to a horse sanctuary in Plymouth County, and who now reside at ARL's Dedham facility.

The 20-year old brothers are named Dwight and Stanley, and are described by ARL as “not only stunning, [but] they are in fantastic health and are very social horses. They also have a bit of a mischievous side as well." They are at ARL in Dedham after spending “a little too much time trying to interact with the mares” at their last sanctuary home.

ARL notes that mini horses usually live longer than full-size horse breeds. Dwight and Stanley are expected to have many more years to enjoy their full lives.

The two mini stallions will be gelded later this month, and then will be ready for a new home. ARL encourages prospective adopters who have capacity for both brothers to reach out to the ARL Dedham adoption team at (617) 426-9170 or email

ARL has a special affinity for horses, as founder Anna Harris Smith purchased ARL's over 20-acre site in 1907 for the purpose of providing a sanctuary for the working horses of Boston. ARL notes that those horses endured "grueling working conditions and were often treated very poorly." Seeking to improve their lot, Ms. Smith established the Animal Rescue League of Boston in 1899.
