Rescue Me ID: 14-08-22-00133Grace (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Hi folks, my name is Grace! I would like to tell you a little bit about myself and share my progress since I have come to Doxy's: I used to be called Red, but I left my old name and my old life behind. I am so much happier roaming around the pasture here at Doxy's with all my new friends! It is so much better than constantly living in a barn. I am nine years old, and a 15.2 hh thoroughbred mare. I used to feel uneasy and anxious, but I have calmed down so much since I came to Doxy's. I just love being a part of my herd! Yesterday, I swear a saddle jumped off the stall wall and tried to attack me! It scared me pretty darn good, but my herd ... (Read More)leader came over and soothed my fears away. I really am enjoying all this new found human and herd contact. I just love to be groomed, and I don't mind it when the people here pick all that yucky stuff out of my hoofs. Doxy's thinks I'm a little skinny for my size, so they have been giving me extra feed to fatten me up a bit. No arguments here! I would like to find a family of my own who will take care of me like they do here at Doxy's. I can tell they love me here, because they make sure I have everything I need, and that I am a happy girl! I have great ground manners, and as you can see I am good with other horses. I think Hogie loves me... I had not been ridden for a very long time until coming to Doxy's. I did pretty well for my first time out, I just need some help in polishing my skills. I like to be ridden English for those of you who may be interested. Stay tuned for more updates on my new life here at Doxy's! My adoption fee is $550 and I will consider all excellent homes. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-10-00120Raina (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Pretty 14 Year old QH Paint mare no papers seeks special home. Raina is up to date on vaccinations and teeth. Raina is rideable, however, due to a bone spur in her right front foot, she has off days and receives isoxsuprine daily. Raina would be best suited to an intermediate rider or she would make a great pasture buddy.

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Lovey is a retired thoroughbred. I've had him for over 12 yrs. I sold my farm last year & have had to board him since that time. I have not been able to re-home him & boarding is getting expensive. He has not been ridden in over 10 yrs & will need re-training (has been ridden Western in the past). He loves the company of other horses & would make a great pasture companion. ** A reference letter from your veterinarian is required!

Ellie is a gorgeous girl, very stocky and sturdy and could handle a small adult rider. You have to see her to appreciate how well her name fits her. She gets along well with other horses and has developed good ground manners since coming to Doxy's. We did discover a small band of scar tissue on a rear fetlock. This was examined by our vet who suggested lunging 3-4 times a week on sod to break it up. Ellie exhibits no signs of lameness, just looking ... (Read More)to her future.

Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    ***ADOPTION PENDING*** Hogan, previously known as Hulk, is a 13.2 hh 6 year old paint pony/draft mix who came to Doxy's from the Humane Society after being seized from his owner in the middle of March 2013. He arrived as a stallion and has been gelded. We initially named him Hulk because of his thick neck and body, just made us think of 'Hulk Hogan'. He is a very people friendly guy and smart as a whip, expecting great things for him as we get to know each other better. Hogan is receptive to a saddle pad, leads well and picks his feet up without any fuss. He has been pastured only with mares and gets along nicely with them. He can be a ...

Candy's ground manners are excellent, she leads well with a halter and gets along well with other horses. She has worked at two events, providing pony rides, and did an awesome job for a young girl.

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