|Rescue Me ID: 14-04-09-00004Peaches (female)|
Peaches is a 16 year old, about 16 hand purebred Apaloosa mare,but we were not given her papers. We were told that someone in her past paid $8,000 for her at one point. I know nothing about this breed, but she is out of Joker bloodlines, which is supposed to have won a lot of money. She is starting to get moon blindness. I say starting to get moon blindness because she can clearly see to some point and has only had one episode about 3 months ago, since I have been around her. To look at her eyes I doubt if the average horseman could see anything wrong (this pic doesn't do her much good, her eyes are brown and do not look light like that). She came to our barn about 6 months ago with a 15 yr old girl that had only had her a few months. Peaches is so special because we heard stories about her not getting along with the people she came from, and that we were going to have our hands full trying to ride her. She has been nothing but sweet as can be. The 15 year old has trail rode her all over the trails where we live and everything seemed to be fine (This horse is even leg cue trained better than any horse I have seen). About 3 months ago, her eyes looked hazy and she seemed a little off, the 15 yr old was riding her and she didn't seem to have her footing very well, after seeming to have trouble with uneven surfaces several times she started to go down on all 4 legs at one point, but did everything she could to stay on her feet, and did. I realized then that something was wrong with her sight,even though I'd never been around this, I also realized this mare did everything she could to keep from falling on this youngster and hurting her. It is hard for us to try to find her another home because we have become so fond of her, but we are not doing her any good. Her owner is having financial trouble, it is hard for her to afford her board, let alone any other bills that may come up. We only pasture board, and the horses run in and out, which is not good for her because they are starting to push her out and dominate her. I just know if we could find someone that is used to doing arena work like 4h or contesting where she doesn't have to deal with uneven surfaces, it would be better for her. Her owner is in agreement and understands that she cannot afford to take care of her as well as she should be taken care of. And I can't keep eating the cost of it. I have my own horses. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 13-01-31-00438Nester (male)|
Nester is a 9yr old gelding. Nester is a big pet with tons of personality. He is kind and gentle but can be pushy. He needs an owner that can keep him in check. He hasn't been ridden or trained to cart. He has just been a loved pet. He doesn't kick or bite. Nester can be bossy with other horses. He is good for the farrier and the vet. He is a bit on the plump side and would do well with a weight loss program. His adoption fee is $200.00. If interested in meeting this cutie please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 419-591-6621

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