Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Gelded, Fearful/Anxious 

    Ohanu is a 10yr old Mustang gelding. Recently brought back from an adoptive home due to care issues. He is a bit more nervous now then he had been before. He wants to trust and does feel more confident with a person holding him for farrier or when tied he prefers someone near. Was told has had saddle (not sure on rider) before he came in first time but during a longe session it had flipped underneath him and scared him. We had put some people on him and he was nervous but wanting to try. Skittish though when sides were touched. Not sure what all was done while in home before coming back. Just had feet done and dewormed. He is a bit more ... (Read More)dominant in herd setting. More so with the boys if in mixed herd. Usually fairly good with mares. Ok with other boys if only boys. If mixed he wants to be in charge, but with right grouping he gets along fairly well. Comes with an adoption contract. (Less)

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