|Rescue Me ID: 15-08-18-00513Sambucca (male)|
'Sambucca, or Sam, is 18-20 years young, 15.1 hh and around 1,000 lbs. He is a flea-bitten leopard Appaloosa Quarter Horse mix. He has large QH feet that are striped. To my knowledge, he hasn't ever had shoes. Since he is 3/4 Appy and 1/4 QH, he has that quirky Appy personality. He has abuse in his past and I had to be gentled and taught to not be fearful of all people. He and I took things very slowly and connected with equine massage. He is UTD on everything, stands for farrier and vet. He has no problem loading. Sam is not for a beginner because of his past abuse. He has some Natural Horsemanship training, rides English and Western and goes bit-less. If you don't know what you are doing, he will take advantage of you! The ONLY reason I am looking to find him a home is because of my health issues. He is a wonderful horse and for that reason, he needs to go to the right home, where he is appreciated for the unique horse that he is! Contract with buyer will include a no auction clause and first right of refusal to seller. (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.
