|Animal ID: #475Betty (female)|
Betty is a 13 year old Standardbred Chestnut mare. She came to us after receiving a call from a Fountain County resident on February 16, 2016 about her being left abandoned by her owner. The true story usually comes out after we start talking to people. Betty was bought from an Amish Auction in October 2015 after being rtired from being a buggy horse. The person who purchased Betty gave her to his daughter's boyfriend after repayment of the purchasing cost. Well the daughter & boyfriend split up, he moved out, and left Betty there with the family. The family had contacted him numerous times to come & pick her up & take her, he refused to pick her up or return phone calls. They tried sending her back to the Amish & they refused her stating as far as they were concernedit was his horse. Betty has been diagnosed with Heaves when we got her & was started on Albuteral Sulfate for oral suspension at the dosage of 10cc twice daily. We are working on getting her on a management program to help her heaves. Heavs is a chronic, non-incectious airway condition for horses that is also called recurrent airway obstruction. This disease occurs in horses more than 6 years old & is the result of an alllergic reaction to inhaled particles. Betty looves attention from people, loads & unloads very well, stands great for a farrier to get her feet trimmed, & takes Albuteral smoothly. Betty doesnt get too excited with new things & situations. She is curious of new things. She adjusts to new herds well. Betty has had a couple set backs but has healed & still looking for a new home.

Cinnamon is a good boy who does well with the other geldings who share his pasture. He will assert himself though if another tries to. He's a quick learner & usually only needs to be shown once or twice that something isn't going to hurt him & he'll accept the situation.

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