Rescue Me ID: 14-09-11-00232Jaegermann (male)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Go to goodhorse.org to see his pedigree and his race record. Jaegermann is a 6 year old Thoroughbred gelding who stands 16.2 hands. His owner sold him but found that it had turned into a bad situation so she went and got him back. She put the weight back on and then sent him to Kelley Williams for some additional training and evaluation. He is a nice horse but also a cribber, though not thru the strap. He did need to gain some confidence after some bad riding, which is why she sent him off. He is good now although he is obviously green. However he has been let down and had some retraining so he is not right off the track. Please ... (Read More)click here to see his video. Jaegermann is completely sound and a good mover. He is available to an approved home and located in Taneytown, Maryland. Please email, Trainer@goodhorse.org for more information. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-11-00230That's What I Mint (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 

    Mint is unraced. A frantic call was made to TPR making a plea for the life of two year old Thoroughbred filly, That's What I Mint. 'In this case, we were able to say YES! We can help her.' says Kimberly Clark, Executive Director of TPR. Due to the extraordinary support of our donors who contributed to our 2013 end of year fundraising campaign.' Mint had never even raced and now had a slightly displaced slab fracture. The prognosis was very good, with surgery and time to heal. Her breeder/owner could not afford to rehabilitate her so the decision was made to euthanize her. Fortunately Mint had friends who contacted TPR. Thanks to our ... (Read More)donors, we had the funding to provide Mint with the care she so desperately needed. 'We receive calls like this a lot, sadly we just don't have the funding to give more Thoroughbred racehorses this happy ending to their career.' said Clark. Spurlock Equine performed the surgery at cost, donating their incredible expertise. Mint is now at a TPR foster farm recovering. She had her five month radiographs done and is now cleared to be turned out. She is at the Metler foster farm turned out with Midnight Terror who is also recovering from surgery at Spurlock Equine. Mint is sound and now we begin the process of finding her the right home! She is up to date on all vaccinations, deworming and dental. Mint stands 16.2 hands at just 3 years old. She is elegant, friendly and loves human companionship. She is handled daily by her foster mom, Mary. Mint has no vices. We are looking for a home where she will be loved and adored for the rest of her life. We feel she would be an excellent candidate for pleasure/trail after turn out for another 3 months. Mint is located in Upper Marlboro, Maryland and is available to an approved home. Please me for more information at kclark@goodhorse.org (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-11-00217Noble Commander (male)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Noble is a beautiful and unraced thoroughbred gelding. He is 7 years old and stands 16.2 hands with a small white star on his forehead and one white anklet. Noble is extremely well bred. His father was Harlan's Holiday who won the following Stakes Races: The Dubai World Cup, Hollywood Gold Cup Handicap, Florida Derby, Breeder's Futurity Stakes and many others. Go to goodhorse.org to see his Pedigree. The following is from his owner%BD'%BD| Noble has no vices. One year ago he was shown locally over fences and on the flat. He pinned in both classes. Noble needs an experienced rider right now because he is out of shape and stiff on his ... (Read More)circles. Once he gets going again in a regular program, he is very nice to ride. Noble is an easy keeper and loves to eat! He is kind when turned out with others also! Noble had an injury to his back right ankle when he was somewhere between a yearling and a two year old. I saw a picture of him from the farm he was bred and there was no indication of the injury yet on his back ankle. So sometime in between one and two when he started into training he must have been injured. I had x-rays taken of his ankle and the vet said he should be okay. I will also be taking some new x-rays for a potential adopter to have. The injury was to Noble's growth plate. Noble would do well being in a place where he mostly has to be ridden on level ground. He can jump and do dressage and just about anything else. He just needs to be on good ground.' Noble is residing in Orlean, Virginia, please contact me for more info. at goodhorse.org (Less)

We are hoping that this pretty horse will find a loving human who she can bond with and begin to really enjoy life! She has no vices but x-rays taken after her last race showed a knee chip.

Missy is a New York bred by Golden Missile out of a With Approval mare. She last raced on December 6, 2014. She was hand walked each day at the track (thus the chain in her mouth for the pictures as she was bouncy, not unusual for a young horse who is basically stall bound other than a 30 minute walk per day!) She has now moved to a farm. She is an easy keeper and loves her horse friends, a social butterfly of sorts! She gets along well with geldings and mares alike. She is currently residing at a farm in Reinholds, Pennsylvania. Please contact me for more info on this (Less)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Woody is a 4 year old gelding, 16.1 hands and with tons of potential! After a brief racing career in which he showed no interest, he was retired to the farm where he has been relaxing ever since. He last raced on 11/29/2013. At this point he is more than ready to start a new career and seems to be quite bored with all the R&R out there on the farm! He is sweet and friendly, but definitely has some energy to put to good use. Woody would be best suited for pleasure riding or dressage, not jumping as he had an injury to his left ankle while racing. He is sound but we feel his best chance to stay that way is to avoid jumping or hard ... (Read More)impacts on the front legs. Go to goodhorse.org for his Pedigree and his Race Record. Woody is a Kentucky bred by Latent Heat out of a Salt Lake mare. He is sound with no vices and turns out well with other horse friends.

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Impressive. That is what this boy's achievements are. Now he just needs the right human to come along so he can continue on with his impressive ways. During his very successful racing career, Oopers demonstrated an incredible work ethic, athleticism, soundness and all of the qualities needed in a successful show horse. One of his numerous race fans took him upon retirement to insure he got a future. He's been let down and rested on the farm and now she is ready to let him go on to his next owner so she can help another horse. This is a guy who is used to working and it would be a shame if he was only a pasture puff. As much as she ... (Read More)loves him, she knows he should go to someone who will work with his talents. Go to goodhorse.org to see his pedigree and his impressive race record. This boy is a true war horse, running 87 times, 10-14-9 with earnings of $303,082. He will be eligible for the OTTB Shows special War Horse Prizes! He suffered an injury in his last race which was diagnosed as a non displaced fracture of the left sesamoid. He has been on the farm since March 2014. He has never had a lame step even when the injury was new. Oopers is sound but it's recommended he still be off till February/March 2015 for best chance at him having a full productive second career. The owner has had 2 sets of xrays taken this summer most recent in July I believe. Oopers is 16 hands and big boned. He is 9 years old with no vices. He is a wonderful mover and would be suited to most any career, but with that build I can see him jumping and loving it! He is offered for our standard $300 adoption fee to an approved home and is located in Burtonsville, Maryland. Please contact me for more information. (Less)

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