Rescue Me ID: 14-04-14-00299Zooey (female)

Horse    Age: Yearling

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

    Zooey is a yearling pinto filly. She is a beautiful chestnut color with splashes of white all over her legs. If you look closely, you can see the splash on her knee... Zooey came to us with Oprah. She too was locked in a barn with no food or water. She has been through a lot in her short life. Her feet were in very poor condition when she arrived and she behaved nicely for the farrier, although it was clear she was not sure exactly what was going on! With the right home, Zooey should blossom into a lovely little horse. She is young enough that she may soon forget any ugly past. If you are interested in meeting Zooey, please email ...

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-10-00054Anna Belle (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 

    Anna Belle is a registered Suffolk (we do have her papers). She is 10 but will be 11 on April 26. She is very good with people and other horses but she does want to be the boss, especially at meal time. She is a big eater!!! She came from a farm that used her for pulling farm machinery and we have loaned her to an Amish farm near us. She does work better as part of a team. We were told that you can ride her but we never have. We dislike seeing her go but my husband has serious health issues and we can not longer care for her properly. We are asking $1,500 or best offer. We paid $2,000 for her 6 years ago.

Rescue Me ID: 14-01-01-00284Lady Topaz (Lady) (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Lady gets along well with one or two other horses. She needs a somewhat quite pasture mate, because she is blind. Lady is a sweet, kind horse that loves attention. That said, she is absolutely amazing! Her lack of sight is no reason to pass over her. Give her time to trust you and she will prove that she is a reliable mount. She has proven herself time and again when being ridden by a variety of people (see the video above). She is sensitive to all cues, neck reins, and can easily be ridden by a confident, intermediate rider. She has been ridden regularly both in the ring and outdoors since losing her sight. She needs a home with a ... (Read More)pasture that is relatively free of trees and obstacles. One or two trees is fine... a grove of trees is not good as she could easily bump into one after another and become disoriented. She knows her boundaries well, and responds perfectly to voice commands, step, whoa, wait. (Less)

Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current 

    Josh has been ridden primarily English, has shown, jumped, done flatwork, trails and training-level Dressage. Josh is a laid back horse with a good work ethic. He easily adapts to the skill level of the rider and would be a wonderfully suitable mount for the advanced beginner rider. Josh has not been ridden much the last couple of years, so he will need a short refresher by a more experienced rider, initially. He has an 'ankle' on the LF from an old racing injury. He is sound for pleasure and trail riding. He is utd on shots, farrier, and dental; he is passive in the pasture and gets along well with other horses.

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)

Rescue Me ID: 13-02-09-00001MAC (male)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    ****TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE FOR 90 DAYS**** After much 'waffling' for about a year, I decided to offer my registered Saddlebred gelding for adoption. Mac stands just shy of 16.3H and is 8 years old. I bought him with my own funds from Camelot Auction House in Sept 2009 with the intention of working with him for awhile then adopting him out. However, he is a friendly laid-back goofball that won my heart quickly so I thought he might be that western show horse I've been wanting for a long time. He was announced at the auction as broke to ride and drive but has not been hitched since I got him. His training got put 'on a back burner' a lot the ... (Read More)first couple of years. Now that he has been worked more, I am seeing a difference in his way of going that indicates his primary niche to be english (hunt seat or dressage) instead of western. He does have nice motion in his extended trot. He would probably enjoy doing some trail riding too. His height and long stride are a little intimidating for me because of my disabilities and although he enjoys just being a 'pet,' it is not the best thing for his brain now that he has physically matured. He has a current negative Coggins and is kept current on worming and hoof trims. It will not be easy to let him go, but I would love to see him excel with someone who is a better match for him. He has been ridden under english, western and australian tack and does not have any problems accepting any style. An adoption contract and fee are required. If you have a sense of humor this tall handsome horse will keep you chuckling with his antics, but he is a good boy and wants to please. Short videos and more photos are 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.
