Animal ID: 14-01-04-00086Joseph (male)

Horse    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis, Laminitis, Thrush 

    I received a free horse just over a year ago with the only knowledge of a right broken long pastern from about ten years prior and UTD on all shots. His name is Joseph, he's a flea-bitten grey Arabian, and he's very sweet (a favorite among kids). Upon initial assessment, his hooves were terribly overgrown- he had collapsed and underrun heels, and the worse case of thrush I had ever seen. I took off a solid three inches of long toe and was working on pulling his heels back to grow naturally and in the correct conformation, as well as packing and battling thrush. He had a horrible limp and his left 3rd metacarpal has rotated (correctable). ... (Read More)On top of that, I discovered he has sensitive skin, and wave mouth from neglecting to have them floated for years. He dropped a substantial amount of weight for a while, which has been corrected with probiotics and additional supplements. Long story short- he still needs a lot of work, but I am deployed. My family has been supportive and helping Joe in any way they can, but they say that the corrective shoeing has caused his leg to rotate further, where I had it almost straight before I left. I want to keep working on him, but it's getting to the point where I can no longer afford it. I need help. I've attached a photo of him before I left and am currently looking for a different farrier. I'm not sure if you could help me, but he is a sweet boy. I don't want to give him up, but what he needs extends beyond my financial capabilities. Do you have any advice for me, or could you take him? (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Horse in Vermont
    Horses can make good pets in Vermont 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.
