    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)

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.
