Willow is being offered for adoption again. Willow is a 14 year old hackney mare who is around 10.2hh. Willow was assessed by our driving trainer, Tanya W on Sunday. Tania reported the following; "Willow showed skills as a cart pony! Willow softens nicely once she feels comfortable. She accepts a bitting rig well and did not fuss with her bridle. It appears she knows her walk and trot commands and steers with a light hand. With some constant work and some gentle treatment she will have no problem getting back into shape. Willow did not seem to be bothered by any of the traffic driving by the ring or any of the people watching. This is a nice pony for someone to bring back into work and have some nice long road hacks."
Willow is fully up to date with her vaccines, dental care, and hoof care. She is a fancy little Hackney. She loads and trailers beautifully. She also parks out. She has been lunged and did fabulous and was great with voice commands.
When I visited Horses With Hope Equine Rescue on Thursday I took home this little guy with me in hopes of finding him his forever home. Can you believe he was at the rescue for over a year with no interest? I felt we could find him a home rather quickly and in an effort to help each other and help more horses he is now at our rescue. Taffy is a five year old mini (8hh) gelding. Horses with hope saved him directly from New Holland Auction in June 2015. He was a stud, and they ...gelded him shortly after brining him home. He is very curious, interactive and likes to have friends. He gets along well with his full size companions. He likes to play...he is young and has some energy. He had recently started to learn ground driving. Due to Taffy's energy and being slightly "mouthy" he is not being recommended for children under age 12. Taffy's adoption fee is $400 with a contract. Half of his adoption fee will go to Horses with Hope Equine Rescue and half will go to All The Kings Horses Equine Rescue. What a great way to support two rescues.
Snapple is available for adoption. Snapple is a Quarter horse type Mare that is 15hh. She is in her late teens/early twenties, very sweet in your pocket personality. Snapple was once used in 4h and taught children how to ride. Snapple could easily be your first horse, or a horse for a young/beginer child. Snapple will teach a young child everything there is to know about horses. Snapple requires a light rider as she has arthritis in which she is taking Previcox for. Light exercise is actually very good for Snapple. Snapple is available for a $350 adoption donation with a contract, and adopter must be within 3 hours of the rescue.
Rain is a 15 year old mare that was part of a neglect situation in Lyme, CT. She came to us with Tucker and Pepper. Rain hasn't gotten a lot of attention however, she was probably the one in the worst condition. When I saw her she was standing in a triangle paddock that was only three round pen panels. She was filthy, covered in manure, rain rot, and other horrible skin conditions including lice. She had the worst leg injury that I had ever seen that was infected and draining... out of her hoof wall. After good wound management, and anti-biotics her injury has healed. She had x-rays that are clean (no breaks, tears, infections) however, they do show a trauma to her bone. We are unsure if she will be sound, it may just take a long time. She is very loving and is very grateful for her new start on life and will be looking for her forever home. Please contact us if you would be interested in meeting this great horse. Rain is available for a $300 adoption donation with a contract and the adopter must be within 3 hours of the rescue
