Horse    Age: Adult

Health: Gelded 

    Nova Oscar and Nova are a sad story. They had a great partnership with a teenage girl, were showing and trail riding and having a fabulous life. The girl went off to college, and was killed in an automobile accident her first semester. Her family cared for the boys for several years longer, keeping their beloved daughter's beloved horses; but they realized that sitting in a pasture with little care and attention wasn't what was best for the boys. They visited CWER, were pleased with what they saw in how we care for our horses, and asked us to bring them here. Stands to mount: B-. stands reasonably well, sometimes shifts away from the ...

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.
