Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current 

    Life's Pursuit (Rosco) (Lord - Neone) 1992 Holsteiner gelding 16 hands Rosco is an exceptional and experienced show horse. He is a winning, and proven jumper with ovely ground manners and a fabulous personality. A confident, consistent and intelligent jumper, Rosco approaches each fence without hesitation and we've never seen him refuse. At WEF, against the 'professionals' he read the course and jumped clean without a practice round. He does best in a consistent program and can be fresh if given more than a week off from work. A confident rider of any skill level can easily ride him and be in the ribbons. He has smooth, consistent lead ... (Read More)changes, long extended trot, flawless rhythm and a commanding presence in the ring. Rosco is an ideal horse for a competitor who wants to win in the 2'6' arena - child or adult. He is an easy keeper, gets along with other horses, and has no vices. Stills and film available. The first video link below is the show in which he had not practiced the course...competed against 'professionals'...and won with a clean round!

Health: Intact (Needs to be Fixed) 

    2007 Belgian cross 16 hands Sunflower is a beautiful mare with a captivating personality. She is a lovely mover, and a real 'looker.' She is stunning. Sunflower could excel at Dressage or could be equally comfortable as a pleasure or trail mount. She is very inquisitive and wants to be involved in whatever you are doing. She is an in-your-pocket horse. She's in training, and we have started ground work with her. She is a quick study and loves doing things. It won't take this gal long to learn a particular discipline and really...the sky is the limit. Sunflower gets along well with other horses. She does like to be the boss and at ...

He is always curious, very intelligent and loves to be involved in what you are doing and often tries to 'help.'

Gat has been schooled English and has done training level Dressage, flatwork, trails, and has jumped cross rails. He is sound with great feet. He's a looker and a lovely mover. His conformation and open-minded attitude make him suitable for a variety of disciplines. Gat would also make a great addition to a family riding program. (Less)

Beauty is a 'cute as a button' miniature mare who is very well schooled for riding or driving. She listens very well and can do lead line, beginner with supervision, or a novice rider with ease. She has been driven often and enjoys both jobs. She's a sweet horse with a lot of personality and would be a great first horse for a young child.

Horse    Age: Colt

Compatibility: Good with Male Horses Only 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current 

    2011 Florida Cracker Horse (breed) 13.3 hands / should mature to 14.2 hands Cracker has a fabulous personality and loves attention. He is curious and brave and a good work ethic. He loves to learn and wants to please. He has a nice smooth trot and is working at collection at the canter. He leads with respect and has great ground manners. He loads, stands tied, stands for vet and farrier, has been desensitized to sounds and objects and movement. He moves nicely off the leg, backs nicely, stops when asked, and stands quietly under saddle. He pastures best with geldings as he can become possessive of mares in a herd situation. Cracker has a ... (Read More)great attitude and a good foundation to build from. He would make a wonderful horse for a pony clubber or 4-H. Florida Cracker Horses are bred for speed and agility. They were bred to cut cattle. NOTE: Cracker has a small frame and is still growing, so his rider needs to weigh 130 pounds or less. Video link: https://vimeo.com/105507968 (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-09-23-00253Gus (male)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    1999 Appaloosa gelding 15 hands Gus was used primarily a trail horse for years. He's well-schooled, an easy keeper, he's honest, and enjoys work. He's sound, fit, and up to date on shots, farrier and de-worming. He's a kind horse that appreciates affection, and a rider with a light hand and leg. He responds well to voice commands, neck reins, and can go bareback with halter and lead ropes, or in tack. Gus would be an excellent trail or endurance horse for the occasional rider as well as for the more frequent rider. He has also done lessons for advanced beginner/novice riders. Gus can be ridden by an advanced beginner with supervision in ... (Read More)the ring. He would need a novice rider on trails. Gus needs a situation where he will be ridden from his home. He does not trailer well and becomes quite agitated when asked to load, and while traveling. He also becomes agitated at shows where there is chaos - even controlled chaos bothers him. That said, if you are a rider who can tack up and go from your home to wherever you'd like to ride - Gus could be the horse for you!

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

    Cadence was rescued with her feet in a horribly neglected state from pounding the roads as a buggy horse. After a lengthy rehab and careful farrier care, she is moving soundly again. She appears to have been to 'Saddlebred school' and exhibits movement of the saddleseat riding discipline but could also do western and possibly hunt seat. She does w/t/c and picks up all cues easily. Not for a total beginner but would do well with a rider who has a good seat and steady light hands. Cadence is fancy under saddle and exhibits that typical Saddlebred pride. Because of past road founder, she requires a home where she can be turned out regularly ... (Read More)but kept off of any grazing except sparse grass. Cadence has a good temperament and has good manners both from the ground and carrying a rider. She is approx 14 yrs old and stands approx 16H to 16.1H. (Less)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    This cute little girl's name is Peekaboo and she is one of my rescues from a kill buyer. She is approx 6 yrs old. She is not to be used for breeding and can be adopted with a no auction/no dealer/no kill buyer contract and adoption fee. I had started working on her ground manners before Old Man Winter struck us with several hard blows and she was doing very well. She can be a little firecracker when she wants to do something different from what her handler wants but she is receptive to firm kindness. She absolutely loves being groomed and petted. Because of an underbite, I'm not sure how she would do with a bit if an adopter wanted to train ... (Read More)her for riding or driving but of course there are always the bitless bridles. I'm sure that she would be quite content being a pet. With some training and because she loves being petted, she might also make a nice therapy 'pony.' Peekaboo is approx 32' tall. UPDATE 8/18/14: Peekaboo is currently being fostered at a local facility with intentions of teaching her to drive. She is still available for adoption at any time. I am still the contact person.

Rescue Me ID: 14-05-05-00373Peppy (female)

Horse    Age: Senior

Personality: Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Malnourished, Abused/Neglected 

    Pretty little chestnut mare; probably technically a pony but we haven't measured her. We rescued this mare this spring when we found she'd been locked in a stall and half-starved all winter. We estimate she'd been in there 8 months. If you've seen her on here before you know she looks much better now! She's put on a lot of weight but we need to find her another home because our horses kick and bite her. She's always coming in from pasture with new cuts and scrapes and we have no way to keep the horses apart. She deserves a quiet home as a beloved pet. If you have room in your barn and your heart for this sweet little mare, email us. ... (Read More)References will be required. She's not strong enough for a long trailer ride so you must be less than 30 minutes from 17020. If you're interested in taking her home I can tell you what we know about her but it's not much at all. We do know she's sweet and easy to handle. She stands quietly for fly spray, to have her cuts doctored and for the farrier. She loves attention. She whinnies for her grain. She is now able to walk, trot and canter. She's old but we don't know her age. She's on senior feed and 24/7 pasture with a run-in. We'll send along the remainder of a bag of feed and a halter and lead rope. She seems to have been broke to ride earlier in her life (my daughter jumped on her the other day bareback with a halter) and may be strong enough to give very light children hand-led pony rides but no adult riders and no saddles due to an injury to her withers. Email for more information and with your references. We'll look them over and contact you. (Less)

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 15-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. Fortunately, she was maintained reasonably well. 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. (Her first Amish owner purchased her as a 4-month-old baby along with her dam.) She is easy to bridle and tack up, picks up her feet ... (Read More)nicely for cleaning and for the farrier, loads and unloads nicely on a trailer and is now doing very well at dealing with 'scary' stimuli after being worked with on hypersensitivity 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 vaccinations and worming are up-to-date and she has a current negative Coggins. Her feet are trimmed regularly. She does fine in a pasture boarding situation or with a stall as long as she gets lots of regular turnout and is handled regularly. 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 trail horse. Adoption fee and contract are required. *UPDATE 4/30/13: Daisy is currently doing well w/t under saddle, is cantering on a lunge line or when free lunging and she is now cantering willingly in the round pen while free lunging. Short videos and more photos available via email. (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.
