Rescue Me ID: 18-05-30-00296Dodi (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    6/24/04 foaled; Reg 1/2 Arab (Arabian Horse Assn #HAHR* ); 1/2 saddlebred mare A bright, energetic, girl with a lot of forward energy. We suspect she was intended to be a saddleseat show horse and that she would excel in that arena once trained. She would also be a lovely skilled rider trail mount, english show horse, hunter under saddle, or any thinking sport. This is a little PERFORMANCE horse just waiting for the right partner!

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-14-00119Supreme Ruby Rose (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    Pedigree: http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/supreme+ruby+rose Both Rose and Dodi arrived VERY frightened, from a heartbreaking situation. They were exceptionally well bred and cared for, trained and shown at a young age. Then their owners' health deteriorated, and was soon diagnosed as dementia. Her husband has cared for the horses as well as he could, but his priority is his wife's care of course. Finally he could no longer keep them, and so her sister contacted us, then drove hundreds of miles to pick up the horses and bring these 2 to us, and the 3rd horse to another facility. Rose arrived significantly underweight -about 125 lbs on her ... (Read More)900 lb frame - with a shaggy rough coat, in need of dental care, farrier care, groceries, and possibly a muzzle to manage her cribbing. She behaved well for the vet for her physical and basic exam, and was found to not have any major health issues except nervous habits like cribbing, and a need for dental work come late spring. Ground Manners-C Rose is excitable when led, worried more about Dodi than about the humans handling her. This is improving with time, as their separation anxiety is easing and they now often even come into the barn separately, with one remaining in the pasture with a friend and CHOOSING not to come to the gate together. Basic Riding Skills:unknown We believe both mares have basic riding skills. Until Rose reaches a proper weight and fitness, we will not put any weight on her. However, she saddles and bridles easily, lunges exceptionally well, and has learned to round pen at liberty easily. Ideal Career -We suspect Rose was intended to be a saddleseat show horse and that she would excel in that arena once fit. Stall Manners-D If both mares are in the barn, then Rose is fairly calm, but still cribs and plays with doors, latches, etc. She will stand calm to be groomed once asked to settle. She is better about remaining behind alone than Dodi. Trailering Skill-B We're told they trailered with ease Companionship / Pasture Manners-A Both mares originally wanted nothing to do with the herd, but have since settled in beautifully and get along well with all the herd. Manageability for Routine and Medical Care-B Rose was well behaved for the vet. She is edgy about having farrier work done. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Horse in Illinois
    Horses can make good pets in Illinois 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.

    Horses evolved from small mammals with multiple toes. Horses were domesticated for human use as early as 4500 B.C. Horses can sleep standing up. There are over 300 different horse breeds. The smallest horse in the world is a mature miniature horse named Thumbelina. She is seventeen inches tall and weighs 60 pounds.
