Rescue Me ID: 14-08-18-00290GUNSMOKE (male)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    This Haflinger cross pony is very sweet and friendly. He is said to drive and ride but has not been fully evaluated yet due to early signs of cancer on his sheath which is being treated to shrink the growths as much as possible. He was saved from going to auction by a dedicated group on Facebook known as Ray of Hope Haflinger & Hackney Helpers. The group will be posting a fundraiser in hopes that Gunsmoke can have surgery to completely remove the cancerous growths that appear only on the outside of his sheath, making his prognosis really good. His meds are affordable at only $53/mo if purchased over the counter. In the meantime, he is now ... (Read More)at a local foster home until the end of September for ongoing care and evaluation of his training level. He is available for adoption at any time with a written contract specific to his needs. Please contact me. UPDATE: Gunsmoke has been lunged and ridden under tack a couple of times and is proving to be fairly well trained. He could use a little work with flexing but is doing well otherwise. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-07-30-00351Rio (male)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Very Low Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current, EPM 

    Rio is a 17 year old red road QH gelding that is super sweet. He was diagnosed with Lyme and EPM last winter and has been sucessfully treated for both. He has residual EPM neurologic symptoms. He is not able to hold the weight of a person on his back. He sometimes will trip over his own feet. I am not sure if these symptoms will ever get any better and i am doubtful that they will. However, he is a real love and gets along with all the other horses. He would make a wonderful companion. He is a low maintenance guy. Barefoot, not on any meds and UTD on shots. He could live outside if there is a run in shed available. He is a beautiful ... (Read More)red roan. He deserves a wonderful home as he has not been treated very well in the passed. All vet records could be provided as to his treatments in the past. I have plenty of photos of Rio but I could not seem to get the photo uploader to function properly. He is not a resale horse and I am very doubtful he will ever be a safe riding horse. However, I have been told that some horses have come back from EPM and have been able to be ridden again over time. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-08-00147CADENCE (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    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)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Digby 14 year old Appendix gelding, 16 hands. Digby is in search of a forever home. He has been retired from regular riding/jumping due to a non-healing injury, but is sound for turnout and walking trail rides. He is a barn favorite, very gentle, and would also be great for kids pony rides. He is sweet, loves grooming and attention, is an easy keeper, and gets along well with others in turnout. Perfect companion/babysitter!

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.
