Rescue Me ID: 16-08-05-00304Grace (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Morgan Mare 19yrs old Roughly 14.2h Lovingly called 'Gracie Girl' Rides English/Western but will need some retraining before being ridden. Can be fussy on cross-ties. Good for farrier and dentist. Very good with other horses, and very good with children. Does not kick or rear. Would be a great companion horse. Last founder was in 2013. She has been on 1st cut hay and a virtually grass-free paddock. I limit her grass intake to a bare minimum. Low sugar and starch is key for her. She only foundered that one time in 2013 and since then she has been completely fine. She had been shod before for a short time but she is bare foot. ... (Read More)Grace prefers to be outdoors in a run-in or shed with 24/7 in/out access. She is not comfortable in a stall. Grace is an amazing girl. She is extremely lovable and loves to be fussed over. I had fallen in love with her the instant I saw her and I'm confident you will too. She must go to the right person that will give her the attention, time, training and love she needs and deserves. Contracts (First right refusal and no auction/no slaughter) will be signed and I will check in on her from time to time. Please text me if you are interested. (Less)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    BSER Avoca, Pryor Mountain Mustang mare, 15 h. DOB 4-1-2003. Avoca was born with sight but soon developed bi-lateral cataracts. Now Avoca has limited sight. She gets around fine at the rescue and volunteers regularly enjoy a ride on her. Avoca will never be a trail horse. She can only be ridden in very familiar surroundings. She does go w/t/c/b, those are her gates. She needs to be ridden with caution. She is a strong, special horse that deserves a good home that understands her limitations. Are you the special someone Avoca is looking for?

PIease Read Before Adopting a Horse in Massachusetts
    Horses can make good pets in Massachusetts 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. The smallest horse in the world is a mature miniature horse named Thumbelina. She is seventeen inches tall and weighs 60 pounds.
