Rescue Me ID: 14-09-23-00150Paris (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Paris is handled by green volunteers with little to no experience week in and week out. She is patient, polite, and courteous for basic ground handling every day. Paris is often used for round penning demos and to teach new volunteers, because she is so attentive and aware of her handlers. Paris has a very solid foundation under saddle, but hasn't ridden much in the 4 years prior to her return in '12. Paris has always been VERY responsive and a joy to ride. She is NOT for a beginner rider because she responds so easily to leg, voice, weight and rein commands -- even if a beginner did not mean what s/he said! Paris will hold a line as ... (Read More)asked seemingly indefinitely, until her rider asks her to change course. Paris strives for challenges, puzzles, new things to learn and explore and DO.

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-23-00146DJ (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Intact (Needs to be Fixed) 

    DJ Is a 2000 Few Spot Appaloosa-: DJ was part of a massive seizure of 113 badly neglected/starved/abused horses in fall 2010. At the time, DJ was horribly emaciated (body score of 1.0), and she was afraid of people and handling, and would rapidly defend herself with her hooves. In May 2012, the ASPCA National Office asked CWER if we would accept any of the most difficult and 'at risk' horses still in custody from this enormous case. We agreed to accept DJ and two companions-- three special needs horses that we felt would fit well into our rehab and training programs -- and 6/1/12 they arrived at CWER. DJ has pink skin, which leads to ... (Read More)extensive sunburn and some other potential skin care challenges, but has no major skin issues other than summer sunburn. DJ does have vision issues, the vets at Purdue could not identify them clearly; she responds to light and has little to no euveitis, but she clearly has difficulty seeing, bumps into things, spooks at shadows, etc. Otherwise, DJ has no signs of any sort of health challenges. She is overweight, active and playful with the other horses. DJ has some vision limitations and requires an intermediate horse person who understands that she could startle in an unusual situation. She is just started under saddle, but doing incredibly well...trusting her handler on the ground, then the rider on her back. Currently, she needs a trainer to continue her education.

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-16-00149Sassy (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Intact (Needs to be Fixed), Vaccinations Current 

    Sassy was being purchased by someone who had starved horses to death in the past, so we purchased her instead to prevent her from going into a bad situation. She has been a pasture ornament for the most part here for the last few years. My grown kids have put complete beginner riders on her for trail rides since she is slow and will simply follow the other horses. She has not been trained enough to get on and just ride by herself. She follows wonderfully. She has good ground manners has been around lots of other animals and is not flighty. I think she is part gypsy vanner or draft. she's only about 14.2, but weighs 1200. is a super easy ... (Read More)keeper and tends to be too chunky. Easily can carry an adult due to her very stout build. Never been lame, farrier states she has excellent solid hooves. she has teeth floated last May, which we have had done yearly since w shave had her. Contract with first right of refusal, plus vet name and number for a reference is required to adopt. Sorry picture was on a bitter cold day a few weeks ago and haven't had time to even brush her which is why we are hoping to find her a home who will give her some time and attention. (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.
