Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current 

    Oh my - this is cuteness overload! Meet Elmo! He is a TRUE Miniature Horse Gelding, a stunning cremello (actually a palomino paint but you can only see his 2 spots in summer)! Elmo has a peppy - look at meeeee personality (he suffers from little-man syndrome, lol). He likes to show off and makes sure everyone knows he's the man! He is an easy keeper and you have to watch his weight in the summer but he has never foundered or coliced - very healthy little guy. You also have to watch his sun time, should be stalled or wear a fly sheet/mask etc if out during the daytime in summer as he is blue eyed and pink skin and can burn quickly. Elmo is ... (Read More)VERY typy and could make an amazing ground games or driving mini! He is NOT a childs horse - just too much spunk and I'm the man attitude! He gets along with other ponies and even big horses pretty good but can be a little tough on other minis that are mild mannered - again that I'm the man attitude! Would make an excellent driving mini with training. Elmo is sure a fun guy to play with and watch in the field! If you are looking for a cute little guy to bring you laughs and smiles or a talented little project then apply to adopt Elmo today! at www.rugbycreekanimalrescue.org, (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-05-27-00175Tessa (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    'Tessa' (Tea Jay Sea) is a very elegant beautiful OTTB mare. She stands aprox 16hh, 10 yr. A+ daisy clipper movement! Excellent ground manners, good for the vet and farrier. Loves to be groomed and pampered. Was retrained after the track as a jumper but found out she had an issue with her throat/breathing if competed or shown in heavy work it doesn't open up enough... This issue has been fully checked out at the state vet school and found that it is not a hinder if she doesn't compete. She can run across the field forever enjoying stretching her racing legs and never have a problem. It requires no maintenance. Tessa is looking for a ... (Read More)confident intermediate + partner for flat work, light dressage and hacking out. She has had a couple years off work so needs a restart/refresher but is willing and smart. This is the type of mare that enjoys her people and wants to be treated like the princess she is. If you are interested in fostering or adopting Tessa, please contact us at www.rugbycreekanimalsrescue.org and turn in an adoption application. We do ask that you make adoption when adopting. In whatever ever amount you feel you can give or are impressed to give to help cover costs. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-05-27-00162Penny (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    'Penny' - this beautiful girl is just just as lovely to watch run across the field as she is to work with and watch her learn! Penny is a fairly easy keeper and goes barefoot, she gets along well with others and is a great companion. She is only 3-4 years old, approx 14 hh and we assume she is probably a QH or MFT cross. Penny is a little shy at first but warms up with some love...she is very smart and a quick learner - just hasn't been taught much and needs someone to show her the good things in life with some tlc. She does lead, tie, load and is learning about having her feet worked with. Penny has an unlimited future ahead of her - she ... (Read More)just needs that special person who has the vision to see what she can be! We can't wait to see what her life has in store! Penny was a neglect case in which she and her friend 'Belle' were running at large, once caught they were found in such horrible condition they were seized by animal control and turned over to our rescue - we are very grateful they escaped wherever they were so that they could be found and now have a fresh start on life! We would love to adopt them together but also willing to adopt separately if the right homes come along. If you are interested in adopting please go to www.rugbycreekanimalrescue.org/rcar to submit an application. We do ask that you make a donation when adopting.

Rescue Me ID: 14-05-27-00141Belle (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

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

    'Belle' - this gorgeous buttermilk buckskin is ready to fill your field with her beautiful color and heart! Belle is a fairly easy keeper and goes barefoot, she gets along well with others and is a great companion. She is only 4-5 years old, approx 14.2 hh and we assume she is probably a QH cross. Belle is a little shy at first but warms up with some love. She is very smart and a quick learner - just hasn't been taught much and needs someone to show her the good things in life with some tlc. She does lead, tie, load and is learning about having her feet worked with. She could be a great horse to use with Natural Horsemanship ground work and ... (Read More)games.... she may could be a light riding horse but does have a condition in which her trachea was crushed (or she may have been born with it) - at any rate she was been checked by a veterinarian and it does not pose any issues at present with no ongoing care and we dont foresee it ever being a problem... with the exception that if she were ever ridden to a point of exercise that it might not allow her to breath enough for the riding therefore she would be best as a companion or light riding. Belle was a neglect case in which she and her friend 'Penny' were running at large, once caught they were found in such horrible condition they were seized by animal control and turned over to our rescue - we are very grateful they escaped wherever they were so that they could be found and now have a fresh start on life!

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 

    Beautiful Thoroughbred gelding. He has a little arthritis in his back ankle from an injury when he was a yearling He would benefit 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. He just 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. He could possibly be a candidate for surgery, which I can not afford. I was injured from a fall in October and I have not been able to continue my work with him. Noble is extremely well bred, his father ... (Read More)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.

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.

    Horses evolved from small mammals with multiple toes. Horses were domesticated for human use as early as 4500 B.C. Horses can sleep standing up. The smallest horse in the world is a mature miniature horse named Thumbelina. She is seventeen inches tall and weighs 60 pounds.
