Rescue Me ID: 15-07-29-00547Gemini (male)

Horse    Age: Yearling

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

    When 2 yo Cremello Gemini (36 in) was first seen at auction in PA- prior to rescue, this little baby (4mths) was being drug through with a full size Western saddle on his back... shameful! It's taken him a long time to come to trust humans, and he still has moments of shyness and dodging us. However, he has come to enjoy attention and even joins his herd-mates in the mini/pony herd when they approach for attention. He has come to enjoy grooming sessions, leads, ties, is adorable-he may make a good therapy or agility horse.

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-29-00537Bella (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Bella is adoptable as a Pasture Pal only! She suffers from DSLD, which is being managed with regular trims and attention of a hoof care specialist. The specialist is actually developing a pair of 'magic boots' to help Bella get around well - she'll be able to wear these boots over a regular pasture trim. She also requires a carefully managed diet, to keep the weight off of her affected limbs (both hind legs). She is very dominant and sassy with humans - don't be fooled by the DSLD, she can and will drag you anywhere she pleases! We love her sass though - she was rescued from New Holland, heavily pregnant with Zander. When first rescued, she ... (Read More)was very untrusting, but she's come to enjoy and seek out human company - especially if she thinks she can con treats out of you! She does enjoy the attention though - she is beautiful and her long mane and tail need regular brushing to keep untangled. Bella should not live in an active, aggressive herd, because she cannot physically defend herself. She gets along well in the 'pasture pals' herd at GO, and would do well with a handful of chill companions who aren't likely to pick on her. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-29-00532Zander (male)

Horse    Age: Colt

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

    Zander was born after his mother, Bella, was rescued from New Holland. He's now 3 years old and more than ready to start training in earnest. A Halflinger gelding, Zander is very much in your pocket and seeks out human attention. He has a lot to learn but is willing and very clever - he is a creative problem solver! You laugh that we describe a horse like that, but he truly is! He will make someone a fabulous partner. He gets along with other horses but isn't particularly dominant, just persistent.

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Rusty is adoptable as a Pasture Pal only! He suffers from navicular disease, which is being managed through regular therapeutic trims from a highly qualified specialist. Medications also help him feel better. He is friendly with humans, and seeks out attention - he loves to get grooms, as well as bathed and sprayed, whether it's water or fly spray! Rusty and Chief Joe get along well sharing the 'top' of the little herd of pasture pals. Rusty, like Joe, would not do well in an aggressive herd due to his physical limitations.

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Chief Joe 16hh is adoptable as a Pasture Pal only! He is a very handsome adult Standardbred gelding, rescued from New Holland. Everyone who meets him falls in love - he's got a generous spirit and is friendly and in your pocket. He enjoys and seeks out human attention, and is a goofball - he loves to drink straight out of the water hose! He has recovered from EPM and a broken pelvis, and needs regular attention and special trims to help him get around. He lives at the 'top' of his quiet little herd, but because of physical limits would not be able to defend himself in a bigger herd with more aggressive members.

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Saint is a Morgan gelding transferred to GO through Morgan SafeNet. While he has had a lot of time to decompress and remember how to be a horse, his re-training process has just begun. He is uncertain of people and thus requires cautious handling. Outside of situations where he knows something is 'expected', he is curious and friendly, seeking attention from humans. During his most recent training session, he was a very good boy for his handlers and demonstrated he has had past ground work training. As his training progresses, which will eventually include riding, his adoption fee will go up accordingly.

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Hercules is an enormous Belgian gelding 18.1 hh. He was rescued from New Holland after a hard life as an Amish work horse. He is a big teddy bear and wins many hearts here! He is a hard-keeper and currently has on-going hoof issues which require frequent trims and constant attention. For this, it would be ideal if Herc could be homed where there is high, dry ground to make it easier to maintain and improve his hoof condition. Hercules would have a good future with a relatively light work load - we could see him as a cart/wagon horse, and even as a riding horse. He is currently the dominant gelding in his herd (there's a pony who would ... (Read More)disagree!) but he is too big to bother defending his position - he has loyal girlfriends in the GO herd, so we would prefer he continue to live in a herd environment where he can have a girlfriend or two. :) In general he gets along with everyone, but when it comes to food he prefers to only share with his 'girls' and will send away others who try to sneak in.

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Rambo & Rod are nearly identical brother Halflinger geldings (15hh) which must be adopted together. After rescue, they had extensive rehabilitation time learning to trust people again, they are ready for a forever home and the next step in training. As former Amish horses, it is likely that they were trained in driving and possibly riding prior to their rescue; at GO they have received some evaluation and training which indicates this. Both geldings are friendly and in your pocket once they 'know' you, but they are currently elusive with most strangers and visitors to the farm. With patience and quiet movement, they are not difficult to ... (Read More)catch and they have good ground manners once caught. Both geldings tend to hang out with the herd of minis and ponies and are not particularly dominant. (Less)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Scarlett is a 15.2 hand Appendix-type mare. Solid bay, she was rescued from New Holland and has recently begun riding training at GO. We suspect she has had prior training - her evaluation went swimmingly and we believe she is going to show us that she is a been there, done that sort of mare. As her training continues, her adoption fee will go up accordingly.

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Mango is a gaited pony mare who was rescued from New Holland with a foal (Finn) at her side. She is the dominant mare in the mini/pony herd, and remains somewhat wary of human company. She is well-behaved once caught, but she is generally evasive and requires patience. She has speed, a big motor and beautiful movement - we think she would make a good prospect for a child's eventing pony; we've seen her jump and she gets a lot of height! She has not yet been evaluated to see if she has previous riding training, but if not adopted soon we will begin riding training at GO and her adoption fee will go up accordingly.

Horse    Age: Yearling

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

    Tiny (31 in) Anya was born shortly after her mother, Pegasus, was rescued from New Holland. From her very first day, Anya has been a free-spirited, feisty, dominant horse. She has no fear of anything she's encountered thus far in life, and in her first months she ran her mother ragged with worry by disappearing through fences where her mother couldn't follow. Now that she's a little older, however, she and her mother stick together more often than not, and they as a pair hang out with the 'big horses' far more often than with the rest of the minis and ponies that they were rescued with. We'd love to see Peg and Anya adopted together, but ... (Read More)either way, Anya is likely to make a fun agility mini, for someone with time and very good fences! (Less)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Pegasus was rescued from New Holland while heavily pregnant - she gave birth to Anya shortly after they were saved. She was obviously handled very roughly in her past life as a broodmare, and as a result took a long time to regain trust in people. She is still shy with strangers and even with familiar people when they are too 'loud' with either their voice or movements. However, with a handful of people at the rescue she will now seek out attention even if there are not treats involved. Peg tends to follow her daughter around most of the time, and since Anya prefers to hang out with the 'big' horses, they are often separated from the rest of ... (Read More)the miniature horses who call GO their haven. We'd love to see Pegasus and Anya adopted together if possible. (Less)

Horse    Age: Yearling

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

    Imp (40 in) was just a baby when rescued from New Holland. He has grown up into a friendly opportunist- he enjoys and seeks out human company, and gets along well with the herd - not submissive but not dominant either. He's quite large for a mini, so we suspect one of his parents was a pony. We think he'd make a cute 'team' for cart driving with Finn, another rescued in the same herd of minis and ponies. When full grown, he should be large enough for children to ride.

Horse    Age: Yearling

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

    Finn (40 in) was only a couple days old when he, his mother, and a group of fellow ponies and minis were rescued from New Holland. He has grown up to be a friendly, feisty colt who gets along with the herd although is not the most social of them. He is not 100% mini - his sire may have been but his mother is a small pony. When full grown, he may be large enough for children to ride. We kind of picture Finn and Imp, another colt from his group, as making a cute 'team' for cart driving.

Personality: Average Energy, Very Dominant 
Health: Intact (Needs to be Fixed), Vaccinations Current 

    Kiwi (34 in) was born a couple weeks prior to her mother's rescue from New Holland with a large group of fellow miniature horses. Kiwi has grown up friendly and curious - she is very much in your pocket and seeks out human company any chance she gets. She has several 'best friends' among the mini herd, but also wanders off on her own to seek out attention from humans who are nearby. This summer she finally shed out her 'baby' coat to reveal a gorgeous roany Appaloosa color - the picture doesn't do her justice!

    Cherry Cracker (35 in) was rescued in 2013 from New Holland along with a whole group of miniature horses. She had her baby, Kiwi, shortly before rescue. Cherry is a sweet, curious mare who seeks out human company if available, and enjoys pampering. In her prior life she was a broodmare.

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