Rescue Me ID: 16-05-29-00345Midnight Oasis (male)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    We purchased Midnight from a woman who said she saved him from the show circuit (but she only had him 4 months). He was to be my late husband's project horse, so he needs an experienced rider. Midnight is a great trail horse and enjoys ring work, but shows are not an option for him. When we got him he would not come near people, did not know how to be part of a herd, would not take treats, would hide in his stall, was scared, and had such bad feet we almost had to put him down. Since coming to this home 5 years ago his feet are great, he knows he is a horse and has good interaction with my little herd, has learned ground manners, and is ... (Read More)usually the first to greet people, and enjoys treats! He has become a love (and likes kisses). I lost my husband almost 2 years ago. Since then I lost a horse to health issues and placed another to a lovely equestrian camp. Unfortunately I have to place my beloved Midnight a well, as I cannot keep him due to time and money. He deserves better than I can give. I brought him this far, I need a loving home for him, one that provides the love he did not get before coming here. He is 12 years old, about 15.2h, has just been floated and his feet/shots/Coggins are current. NO TWH SHOW INTERESTS NO SLAUGHTER BUYERS REFERENCES REQUIRED MUST BE GOOD LOVING HOME (Less)

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Gelded, Vaccinations Current 

    This fella had been roaming free all along a rural highway for weeks when finally someone caught him and called Animal Control who brought him to us. He has been with us for several weeks and his 'stray hold' is up....he now belongs to RCAR! Logan is gelding now and was previously a very good stallion. He enjoys his FOOD and is relatively quiet and minds his own (has since moved to a grass paddock after we t ook care of his major parasite load). Though it appears he has had a rough life and some rough handling he is smart and just needs some TLC and to learn what it is that people want and how to accomplish that. He is a long legged fella ... (Read More)that is a floating mover and with the right person willing to take some patient time with him he would have an unlimited future!

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.
