Health: Intact (Needs to be Fixed), Vaccinations Current, Blind,
 Abused/Neglected 

    Hope and her filly Faith were rescued from New Holland auction with a home offer lined up. The home offer fell through, leaving these two in my care. Both are solid paints and were sold as qhx. Hope is 6 yrs old and has some blindness in her right eye...correctable with surgery and does not affect her. She needs a kind and experienced hand to teach her how to trust again. She's had a few good training sessions under her belt, but is not broke to ride that we know of. Faith, her 5 month old filly, is a total lovebug. I do not have the know how to give them what they need...looking for someone willing to save two lives and take on a project. ...

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-17-00626Jaxx (male)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Jaxx is a tall 'drink of water' with sooty buckskin coloring, 16.2H and 12 years old. He has some training in saddleseat, western and a dabble of dressage. Western seems to be his forte. He has never been shown but does have a lot of trail miles behind him. Jaxx was rescued from a kill lot with his registration papers and a current negative Coggins. He is not for a beginner so I am recommending him for an intermediate rider with quiet hands and a good seat. Jaxx is very curious about things in his surroundings. My pet name for him is 'Nosey.' Jaxx is available only to an approved home with a signed adoption contract.

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Badger is a very cute 4-year-old- bay American Saddlebred gelding. He is broke to ride w/t/c but is green and needs someone who can finish his training and put some time into bonding with him. He is a little skittish to halter but calms right down once he is being led. At his young age, he could probably do well in several disciplines and has most recently been ridden in western tack. Badger is available only to an experienced approved home with a signed no auction/no slaughter contract. A video of him under saddle is available upon request.

Horse    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Low Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Gelded, Needs Vaccinations, Arthritis, Fearful/Anxious 

    This is Charlie. He is a 24 yr old TB. He is very sweet and loving, but can be anxious with some separation anxiety when taken away from his other horse friends. I recently moved and don't live close enough to provide the absolute best care that I can for him. I am looking for someone who is experienced with horses and can give him a loving home. Charlie has some mild arthritis in which he gets a supplement for daily. He hasn't been ridden in a few years, but with the right owner and some work he could be used for light riding. He would be just as good as a companion horse or someone looking for a friend for their horse. If interested or ... (Read More)know someone who is, please contact me. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-03-25-00393Miles (male)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Gelded, Needs Vaccinations, Abused/Neglected 

    Miles is a 15.3H to 16H bay 19-year-old trotter Standardbred gelding. He is freeze-branded and has quite a story. Born in New Zealand, he was first raced there then shipped to Australia as a 5-year-old. That was followed with him being shipped to the USA where he continued his racing career. He became a hard working Amish buggy horse but was sent to auction when he could no longer do the long trips they require of their horses. He was rescued from a PA kill lot in terrible condition in 2006 and rehabbed for a couple of months. Then he was sold to a woman who kept him for approximately 8 years. This woman in turn sold him to a family with no ... (Read More)horse experience. All started out well with their young daughter riding him but their lack of experience soon caught up to them in the way of a behavior problem they did not know how to correct. Miles became kind of pushy so they put him up for sale at a very cheap price that was well within the range that the kill buyers will pay for meat horses. With the help of some friends, I was able to bring him to Ephrata PA where he could get a refresher on proper handling behavior and also get protection for the remainder of his life. This boy has changed hands enough! His general demeanor is very friendly. He loves attention and is starting to remember his better manners. He is very willing to work and I've been told that he does not buck, rear, bolt, etc. under saddle. Miles stands nicely in cross ties and is cooperative for the farrier and vet. He is available to a non-jumping home (occasional cross rails and low fences are okay on occasion but not regularly.) Miles is available to an approved home for an adoption fee of $700 with a contract. Please contact me personally for additional info or to set up an appointment to meet Miles. (Less)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Abby is a beautiful 5 year old Saddlebred cross mare. She is saddle broke-but green. When you ask her to do something you have to be patient. She is in the middle of the herd and leads well, loads, is good for the vet and farrier. She is current on shots and worming. Not a hard keeper. Currently she is barefoot. She carries herself very well. Abbigail is still waiting for her FOREVER home.

Rescue Me ID: 13-02-09-00005Daisy (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Daisy is a 16H to 16.1H 16-year-old dark golden chestnut American Saddlebred mare with flaxen mane and tail. Her papers are up to date with the American Saddlebred Registry. She was rescued from a local auction after serving as an Amish buggy horse since she was two years old. Her legs are 'clean' in spite of all the pounding on the hard roads. She was excellent to lunge and ground drive from day one even though she never had any formal training as a youngster. She is easy to bridle and tack up, picks up her feet nicely for cleaning and for the farrier, loads and unloads nicely on a trailer and is now doing very well at dealing with certain ... (Read More)'scary' stimuli after being desensitized to different stimuli for several months. Although not broke to ride when rescued, she now accepts a rider willingly and will stand next to a mounting block for mounting and dismounting. Her feet are trimmed regularly and she is kept current on de-worming. She does fine in a pasture boarding situation or with a stall as long as she gets lots of turnout and is handled regularly. Otherwise, she tends to become shy. Ideally, I would like someone to adopt her close to home so that he or she can spend some time getting to know Daisy before she would be re-located, but all good homes will be considered. She is a beautiful candidate for the western country pleasure division at small ASB shows or she could do local shows and would also make a nice at-home partner or trail horse. She has been ridden under both western and english tack but does prefer the western gaits. She is not a saddleseat candidate. Daisy is currently doing well w/t under saddle and cantering on command on a lunge line or while free lunging. She is also available as a recreational driving horse. A no kill/no auction/no dealer contract and adoption fee are required. Short videos and more photos available via email. This beautiful mare will make an awesome partner for someone who is patient, kind and confident. (Less)

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