Verdani gets along with others well, she ties, grooms, loads. She had a rough start in life with a home that didn't care for her well, she was even bred and lost the foal, her feet were unkept and she lived in a small mud paddock with little nutrition. Through all that she survived and stayed true to being a good-hearted mare. She is a true gem that just needs polishing. Verdani has a future as a trail horse but will need a confident, positive and patient person as she may have been ridden with ... (Read More)less than okay manners with her previous home. She will do best with being started in the natural horsemanship methods. She loves attention and is very people friendly, nickers to greet you and is truly a sweetheart! Verdani is seeking a forever spot in your heart and barn. If you are touched by her story and want to be that happy ending to a bright new future with this special little lady please contact us about adopting Verdani!

Rescue Me ID: 15-01-19-00236Belle (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    This beautiful Trakehner mare is looking for a special person/place to call her forever home and landing spot! Belle is originally from Canada, had a early career as an Eventer who excelled at the dressage phase, then she had a pasture accident that re-agrivated an old bone chip and is on/off but pasture sound and could be light riding sound (with shoes and supplement - though she would need a tune up and would only be for an intermediate rider). Belle has good manners and really buddies up to a friend and is a good and close companion. Belle is about 18 years and 16.1 hh. She was adopted from us a couple of years ago but her adoptive ... (Read More)family had a major medical issue recently that will require a lot of rehab and thus Belle had to be returned to us. Belle is currently in a temporary foster home but we are seeking a long-term foster or permanent adoptive home. Please apply today! She is currently located in Chapel Hill NC (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-01-29-00336Noble Commander (male)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    Noble is the Big Bay dark bay in the Picture! Beautiful, kind, fun, Thoroughbred gelding. He has arthritis in his right back ankle from an injury when he was a yearling. He would benefit from being in a place where he mostly has to be ridden on level ground. Noble can jump and do dressage and just about anything else. Although Noble can jump, it is not recommended that he be jumped a lot, due to his old injury. He needs to be on good ground. He can not be turned out on frozen ground or slippery wet, muddy ground. Noble could benefit from getting some Previcox for his treatment daily, or some other pain relieving medicine for his ... (Read More)arthritis, but not Bute. He could possibly be a candidate for surgery, which I can not afford. Anyone adopting Noble will have to be ever observant of his right hind leg and work him accordingly to what he can tolerate. So this is not a horse that you can take out and ride the heck out of. You will need to be very mindful of how he is tolerating whatever kind of riding you are doing with him and how much he can tolerate. Noble is extremely well bred, his father was Harlan's Holiday who won the following Stakes Races: The Dubai World Cup, Hollywood Gold Cup Handicap, Florida Derby, Breeders Futurity Stakes and many others. If you think you could give Noble what he needs and deserves, please contact me. Thank you very much. (Less)

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