Rescue Me ID: 16-08-05-00123Taffy (male)

Horse    Age: Colt

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current 

    Taffy is back! In November 2015, this little cutie was fostered to a wonderful family. Taffy spent his days with Horses with Hope Alumni, Austin and certainly received lots of love and attention. They were then able to adopt another rescue from us. Although Taffy did enjoy life as a companion, it is time for a new chapter in his life. We were able to bring Taffy back to the farm for the next phase of his career. We are now introducing him to long-lining and eventually, driving. In the meantime, Taffy enjoys playing with his friends, both large and small. Because he is rather intelligent, he would best be suited with a family who can ... (Read More)continue his training and challenge him with interaction and activity. We also feel that his forever home should only have children over 12 years old. Taffy arrived in June of 2015 from the New Holland Auction. This little cutie was so young that we didn't even realize he was a stallion until our vet looked him over. We are always glad to be able to take in stallions like Taffy before they begin breeding. He was then gelded and recovered well. This boy showed signs of malnutrition and was quite skinny (and very eager for food) upon his arrival at the farm. He is well behaved for the vet and farrier, and enjoyed his recuperation time with his pals. Taffy is 9.2 hh. We are now looking to find this personable little guy his forever home, and we are confident that he will make a wonderful addition to his future family. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-15-00221Scooter (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Versatile young Morgan mare for adoption Scooter is a 4-year-old Morgan mare available for immediate adoption. Scooter came to Horses with Hope along with another mare in a fostering project between two rescues. Scooter is a 4-year-old Bay Morgan mare, approximately 14.1hh. She was removed from a property belonging to hoarders. The farms originally had 60 animals removed 2 years prior and were ordered by the court not to own any more. Hoarding is a psychological disorder, and so the previous owners once again started to collect animals. The state came in and again, removed 12 more animals in terrible condition, including Scooter. The ... (Read More)Hooved Animal Sanctuary took 2 horses and the others were fostered out. Scooter was a mess. She had lice, worms and was very malnourished. They were not sure if she had been born on the property as the owners had a stallion and several mares. Scooter had not been handled so she had to be trapped and run into a trailer, and then haltered. It was difficult for the first 30 days, and they worked to gain her trust and get a lead rope on her halter. It was 60 days before she let them start to lead her, work with her feet and to be groomed. She has truly come a long way. Horses with Hope has continued with Scooter training through the winter. She can W/T/C and enjoys going out on trails. Recently she attended her first horse show and came in first place in the Tadpole 2-phase division. She is a smart and curious filly who likes to investigate everything. If you are interested in adopting Scooter, please contact The Hooved Animal Sanctuary in Vermont or Horses with Hope in Maine and we will guide you to the correct application. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-15-00217Tommy (male)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Flashy 2001 Paint gelding for adoption Tommy is a 15-year-old Paint gelding available for immediate adoption. Tommy was saved in November 2014, from a PA kill pen. After his quarantine, he arrived at Whispering Woods Farm in Maryland. While at Whispering Woods they noticed that he was afraid of being separated and would become very attached to other horses. They worked a lot with Tommy and thought he had worked through his stress, and eventually adopted him out. Unfortunately, the new home did not have another horse, and Tommy was unable to handle being alone. In a cooperative effort, we adopted Tommy from Whispering Woods in order to ... (Read More)provide him with more intensive training. Tommy came to Horses with Hope in late October 2015. It is apparent that Tommy suffers from Separation Anxiety, likely due to traumatic situations that he must have experienced. The beginning of his training and rehabilitation has focused in on these issues. Tommy has made great strides, but there is still some stress when initially separated from a friend, Tommy is a handsome and bright horse that will need a companion once he is adopted. Horses are herd animals and many are not happy unless they have another horse or equine friend with them. If you are considering adopting Tommy, please take this into consideration. Tommy is currently available and we are accepting applications for his adoption. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-15-00207Charlie (male)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Charming 11 year old Quarter Horse Cross gelding available for immediate adoption. Charlie was purchased at the New Holland auction in Pennsylvania in December 2015. Unfortunately, as with most rescues, we do not have any history on this sweet horse. He had been through several auctions previously before coming to New Holland, but because he had no buyer, his fate was not looking good. Horses with Hope rescued Charlie and brought him back to the farm. Shortly after Charlie started his retraining, we noticed he was a bit off on his right front foot. After x-rays, it was revealed that he has some slight navicular changes in his hoof. Because ... (Read More)it was picked up early, his prognosis is good. We had our farrier put a 2 wedge pad under his shoes to alleviate some pressure on his heels. We kept his work schedule light and had him re-x rayed in a month. Under our vets advice, we increased the wedge pad to a 3 and gave him an injection similar to what is currently used in Osteoporosis patients. Charlie continues to improve and after another vet exam, his career outlook is promising. As of June, he has already been downgraded to a 2 wedge. With consistent farrier work, this will continue to improve. Charlie is 15.1hh. Charlie will not be able to be used as a competitive horse, as high impact work is not recommended for his condition. However, he can have a wonderful career doing flat work, trail riding and as a pleasure horse. He is very independent and enjoys time alone with his rider. He has a very friendly and playful personality and is a delight. Charlie is currently available and we are accepting applications for his adoption. (Less)

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