    'Sam' is 18 years young, 15.1 hands and about 1,000 lbs. He is flea-bitten and leopard Appaloosa Quarter Horse mix. He has large QH feet that are striped. To my knowledge, he hasn't ever had shoes. He is 3/4 Appy and 1/4 QH so he has that Appy personality. He has abuse in his past and I had to gentle him and teach him not to be fearful of people. He and I took things very slowly and connected with equine massage. He is UTD on everything, stands for farrier and vet. He has no problem loading. Sam is not for a beginner because of his past abuse. He has some Natural Horsemanship training, rides English and Western and goes bit-less. If ...

PIease Read Before Adopting a Horse in Connecticut
    Horses can make good pets in Connecticut if they match your IifestyIe. Horses are beautiful, romantic animals that many people love. Sadly, however, horses are being neglected, abused, and abandoned at an alarming rate. The reasons a horse would need to be rescued are quite varied. Some horse owners in the Western U.S. have lost their homes and land to foreclosure, leaving nowhere for their horses to go. These horses are sometimes abandoned in the plains and deserts, where they often die of slow exposure. Droughts, rising food and fuel prices, and other economic pressures mean that some owners can no longer afford to feed and care for their horses. Other horses are purchased by inexperienced people for sentimental reasons or as gifts for children, but their owners are unprepared for the ongoing expense and involvement of caring for the horses.

    Like horses, donkeys and mules (sterile hybrids of a horse and a donkey) have their own charm and usefulness. However, these animals have also been affected by hay shortages and some have sadly become victims of abuse or neglect.
