Rescue Me ID: 14-11-22-00128Garnet (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Garnet is a 14-15yr mare who was salvaged from a slaughter auction in 2004-5. Since then she has been living on pasture on a coastal Louisiana ranch. Their owner is now needing to find homes for them. My role is that I am a trainer/hoofcare provider who has been visiting the property since 2010. I don't want to see these horses brought to general auctions as they would have little chance in going to loving homes- neither are trained to ride. Garnet is in good health except for seasonal skin irritation caused by rain and insects. The intense summers (bugs, rains, heat) are beginning to tax these mares and I am moving and no longer able to ... (Read More)visit the property to look in on them. Garnet is a very sweet and beautiful mare who could be an excellent pasture buddy or auntie mare for younger horses. She is hardy and even-keeled. I can handle her safely but she is not trained to ride, and is shy around people so will require someone with some experience and patience with horses. Please contact me for more information if you may be interested or know someone who can help me. Bless you and thank you. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-11-22-00100Ginger (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Ginger is a 18-19yr mare saved from a slaughter auction in 2004-5. She has since lived on pasture on a coastal Louisiana ranch. She has lived fairly well, without any health issues, but she mostly fends for herself and the conditions of the ranch are harsh on the older and younger animals. I am hoping to find a home for her as she is reaching seniority and would be much more comfortable with someone who could provide basic care and attention. For years she has lived mostly on grass, but she now needs hay supplemented through the cold season. During the summer she could really use more protection from insects which are awful where she lives, ... (Read More)and a dry place when the rains persist and flood the pastures. This wise mare is not trained to ride but could be an excellent pasture buddy or auntie for younger horses. She would do best with a turnout situation with choice shelter, and bringing her in the barn for the worst weather and bugs. She isn't hard to handle but is shy of people. I was hired by her owner as a trainer and hoofcare provider and have known her for years. Please contact me if you may be interested or know of any rescue groups that can help me. I am concerned the horse will be taken to a general stock auction if I am not able to find her a home. Thanks for reading. (Less)

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