    Grace is a 9 year old, 15.2 hh red thoroughbred mare. She has calmed down so much since she came to Doxy's, and has settled into one of our herds very nicely.

We are working to bring up her weight and she is filling out quite nicely. She has shown us great ground manners, and she is good with other horses. Grace enjoys being groomed, and has allowed us to pick up her feet to clean them without hesitation. She had not been ridden for years until coming to Doxy's. She rides English and we are ...

Personality: Average Energy

    Tiny Dancer is a 12 year old bay mini mare. She stands 9 hh and is learning that people can be trusted since she arrived at Doxy's. Tiny Dancer gets along well with the other horses and is more than happy to come into the barn to eat, but is difficult to 'catch'. We have been working on her trust issues and gradually she has been coming to us. She halter leads well now that she has gotten to know us better, but Tiny can be skittish around new people. Tiny Dancer's ground manners are good, although she has kicked out when having her back legs groomed. She does not exhibit any signs of ever being saddled or ridden and may have been what we ...

Ellie is a gorgeous girl, very stocky and sturdy and could handle a small adult rider. 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 to her future. She has been under saddle with a rider, is willing and receptive ... (Read More)but knows nothing about being a riding horse.

His bloodlines include some 'royal' horses so we decided to give him his new name. He is the grandson of Spectacular Bid on his dam's side and the grandson of of A.P. Indy on his sire's side. He had spent his life in an all thoroughbred pasture before coming to Doxy's on December 2, 2012 as a flighty, nervous horse. By December 31, 2012 Royal had settled right in and has become 'one of the crowd'. He leads well and is very people friendly. Royal is the perfect ... (Read More)horse for someone who's looking for a project. He gets along well with other horses, has great ground manners, a great personality, mellow and laid back, and is a very quick learner. We began lunging him in May 2013. Royal is not suitable for activities related to jumping. Royal will be trained to ride western using natural horsemanship techniques and has had a saddle on, receptive to the weight but was not crazy about the girth.

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.
