Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Sammy is a great in-your-pocket Shetland Pony. If you are in the field, he is there with you 'helping'. He is hardy with a very thick coat. When he sheds out, he is all black. He is about 12hh. He has had boys climbing all over him and doesn't flinch. He is great at leadline, but doesn't seem to understand what is asked of him by a single rider, so he will need work. He comes when called and is good for the vet and farrier. He has bonded with his pasture mate, a Haflinger mare, Marigold, so they are only offered for sale together. Sammy is UTD with all shots, hooves trimmed every 7 weeks, and is a very easy keeper.

Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Hi everyone! I am sad to have to say goodbye to this beautiful friend but my life has led me to live in Oregon and therefore I cannot take her with me. She is a wonderful horse, good with children and I know she would be perfect for anyone seeking a sweet companion. A little more about her---she's pastured by herself, but when I bought her she was with other horses and they got along fine. She's sweet, she lifts all of her feet for you (she has really good feet for a thoroughbred), --she's off the track and loves to run. She's also Secritariats granddaughter. I do have the paperwork but I'm not able to get it to you due to the fact that I'm ... (Read More)already living in Oregon. But you are able to look her up by her tattoo on her lip. If you have more questions, please feel free to call me at the number provided. (Less)

Horse    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Intact (Needs to be Fixed) 

    16H Homozygous Art Deco son out of a Tra khener/Appendix Paint mare. Very good temperment. I have not had him fixed due to his breeding and homozygous status. I still get people asking to breed to him. My husband recently passed and I have to move. He has been ridden but not in several years. He has never had any health or lameness issue and was born on my farm so I know all of his history. He is registered and I have many more pictures of him as well as some video clips. I can't stress enough that I would like for him to find a very good home as I am very fond of him. Thanks for looking

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)

Rescue Me ID: 14-05-11-00323PEEKABOO (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average 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 going on 7 years 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. With regular turnout or living outside 24/7 she has great ground manners. When she is nervous she responds well to patient kindness. She absolutely loves being groomed and petted. Because of an underbite, I am 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. A long-time friend ... (Read More)fostered Peekaboo over the winter and did some training with her for showmanship and in-hand trail classes. Some of the things she has learned so far are crossing a tarp, standing on a makeshift bridge, having an umbrella popped open next to her and then placed on her, and standing still while a special needs adult walked all around her with a cane. The foster home's farrier remarked that she is one of the best behaved minis he has ever trimmed. Peekaboo is a little timid with new people but she comes around quickly once she is sure no one is going to be rough or do her any harm. Anyone interested in giving Peekaboo a forever home should contact me directly. (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 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.

    Horses evolved from small mammals with multiple toes. Horses can sleep standing up. There are over 300 different horse breeds. The smallest horse in the world is a mature miniature horse named Thumbelina. She is seventeen inches tall and weighs 60 pounds.
