Adopted

We are happy to have helped many of our rescues find loving forever homes.

BEAR

rescue horse - BearBear arrived as a malnourished, stunted colt. In fact, he even had lice when he came.

He was badly in need of some good nutrition, lots of grooming and time to catch up on some growth. 

Bear has an extremely sweet disposition, is a lovely mover and a quick learner. He is going to develop into quite a nice riding and show horse.

He has been trained on the longe line and has been lightly started under saddle

Bear found his forever home as a companion to a young horse named Corgara. He plays in big pastures with trees and beautiful run-ins with Corgara and his mother, Front.

Bear’s new home

 They have a brand new barn with 12′ x 15′ stalls for the inclement weather. 

Since Bear loves treats, making friends and playing with the other horses he is a very lucky boy!

ZENA

rescue horse - ZenaZena is a recent addition to the rescue. She came because she had a problem with her front foot.

Her owner had tried, without success, to correct it. If we were unable to take her she was going to have her euthanized.

We have been able to treat her and make her comfortable with the help of our blacksmith and veterinarians.

Zena is a very safe and confident horse and behaved quite well in the Labor Day Parade as you can see in her picture!

She was adopted by a family and now lives with them at their home an hour away from the rescue. We miss Zena but are happy that she has a loving forever home.

KIRA

rescue horse - KiraKira arrived at the rescue three years ago. We were begged to take her in because someone who cared very much about her was worried about her fate.

She is sweet and kind and wants to teach everyone about caring and acceptance. Kira is almost completely blind, seeing only shadows from her right eye.

She lost her sight after a recurring series of infections that left her with major scarring in her eyes.

Kira loves being part of the team and enjoys grooming and treats!

She became well loved and cared for by her special friends Amy and Nicole. When Amy and her husband bought a house with some property, they prepared a place to take Kira home to.

A horse that I thought would be with us forever is in a permanent, loving home. There isn’t a luckier horse anywhere!

rescue horses - Justin

Justin

JUSTIN

Justin came to the rescue because he was no longer needed at the farm he was at. He was scheduled to go to a sale if no one wanted to buy him.

A woman that loved him, but was unable to own him, bought him and asked if we could take him in to prevent him from being sold at auction.

We were happy to be able to accommodate him at the rescue.

Justin did well here and was wonderful for all levels of riders from first-time to advanced. He is a favorite of everyone that works with him…not to mention handsome and talented.

Justin was adopted along with Kira and spent over a year in a loving new home with his new family and his companion, Kira. Sadly, one of his legs gave out and he became unable to stand. He was humanely euthanized and buried at his new home. He will be forever in all of our hearts.

rescue horse Cali

CALI

Cali was a race horse and then, when she was too slow to win, she was used as a broodmare.

She passed on her “slow genes” and ended up at the rescue because she was no longer wanted by the racing breeder and had nowhere to go.

Cali has found her “special person.” She was adopted by a teenage girl and her family last fall.

They work together very well; she and Cali go to shows together, hang out, and ride in clinics and lessons. Cali loves “her girl.”

rescue horse Moon

MOON

Moon is a nice, solid, all around good guy. He is 15.3 hand, mid teens, chestnut paint gelding that enjoys being loved.

He came in very underweight. The people that had owned him could not afford to feed him.

He was sound, but due to having slightly crooked front legs would not be suitable for heavy work. His ideal situation was a place where he could do light pleasure riding and be a treasured companion.

His original owner, that had bred him and owned him as a baby happened to see one of our placement ads online.She came out to visit and we even got to see his baby pictures!

She was so happy to see him again and to be in a position to offer him a permanent loving home. A happy ending for all!
