Rescue Me ID: 17-04-28-00384Cole (male)

Horse    Age: Colt

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious 

    Cole is part welsh, 14.1 hands and growing, 2 year old gelding. I purchased him as a 9 month old feral colt. He is becoming a nice horse, still very timid and fearful. He is either a blue roan or a grey. He changes color every season. Under the white is a grey. Not broke to ride as I am still winning his trust. I don't have enough time and skill to work with Cole. I'm looking for home that can provide gentle horsemanship methods and handling on a more regular basis. Adoption contract and references will be needed. I don't want him to end up at an auction, kill buyer or bad situation. Price negotiable with experience and home.

Rescue Me ID: 16-10-01-00344ANTHEM (male)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    ANTHEM is the most recent adoptable rescued Saddlebred to be added to my list. He was a little timid at first but has come around nicely to enjoy grooming and being petted. He is good for paste de-worming and the farrier, stands tied and has very good ground manners. Anthem was said to be 15ish years old where he was rescued from. He stands approx 14.2-14.3H and is as cute as a button. He was an Amish buggy horse and doesn't seem to know much about being a riding horse but he does take tack fine and carried a rider while being led - no buck, bolt, rear, bite, etc. He could not have been more of a gentleman. Although he will need someone who ... (Read More)can teach him more cues to be a riding horse, he was calm and relaxed during his evaluation. Anthem is available now to an approved home with a signed contract. (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.
