Rescue Me ID: 14-06-08-00147CADENCE and SALUTE

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs Vaccinations, Founder 

    Cadence and Salute were both rescued with their feet in a horribly neglected state from pounding the roads as Amish buggy horses. After a lengthy rehab, both are moving soundly again. They are rideable, preferably with front hoof boots due to minor rotation of the coffin bone in one foot (Cadence's right front, Salute's left front). Cadence appears to have been to 'Saddlebred schoo' and exhibits movement of the saddleseat riding discipline. She might even be showable in fun shows with front glue-on shoes. Salute takes a rider but does not seem to know much about riding. However, he is smart and tries hard to understand what is being asked of ... (Read More)him. Because of past road founder, both horses require a home where they can be turned out regularly but kept off of any grazing except sparse grass. Cadence has a good temperament but has become a little feisty now that she is feeling so much better. Salute is more laid back and is a perfect gentleman from the moment a lead is snapped onto his halter. She is 16-16.1H, he is in the 16.3H range. Cadence is approx 14 and Salute approx 16 yrs old. Because they have the same turnout and dietary needs and have become a bonded pair, I would like to see them go to the same home but it is not required. Our barn manager has suggested that they would make a nice matched recreational driving pair. An adoption fee of $650 each and contract are required, with a discount to a home that adopts both.

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

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. (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!

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, Submissive 
Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current 

    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 first couple of years. Now that he has been ... (Read More)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.
