Rescue Me ID: 16-12-06-00092Symphony 'SYM' (female)

Horse   

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 

    She is an Arabian I got her from a lady I knew who didn't treat her well and I thought I would have her trained to ride. I did but just never found the time to ride her and I'm not even sure if she remembers her training. Now with me working second shift I just feel bad for her I don't have time to even go get hay in the winter. My friend does but that's if she's not too busy with her business. Her name is Symphony I don't know much about her I just need her to go to a nice place.

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses

    May came to us when her owner moved away. She is an Arab cross mare between 14 and 16 years old. She had been his trail riding horse for several years, but has not been ridden for 3 years. She needs an experienced rider as she is no where near her senior saunter! She can be hard to catch, but she loves grain and carrots! She loads, ties, stands ok for the farrier and is respectful of the other horses. For the right person, May will be a perfect addition!! To meet May, or get more information, contact me.

Horse    Age: Senior

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

    Jake and Flame need a new home immediately as their owner's home is in foreclosure. They have been together their entire lives and would like to keep them together. Jake is the appy. He is about 23 years old and has moon blindness in his right eye. He can be difficult to catch, but once you catch him, he's a prefect trail rider. Flame is a 27 year old Morgan but he acts 15. He doesn't get ridden much and therefore he's spunky when you first get on him. However, he's very well trained, knows all his leg aids, friendly, great around kids, trails, etc. I'm really going to miss these guys but I have no place to keep them as I am caring ...

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Intact (Needs to be Fixed), Vaccinations Current, Blind 

    May is 90/40 blind. She can see fairly well on the right as long as she isn't sun blind. She is in good health. She is good on the ground, has good manners, but has not been started. She does accept weight, and has been ridden bare back a few times. She would make a great brood mare. She needs an experienced handler with time and patience. She is not an easy loader, only been trailered twice. She eats grain once a day, and four flakes of orchard twice a day, with treats here and there. I am having her hooves trimmed next week. Comes with two blankets, halter and lead, and grooming supplies. NO barbedwire or electric fencing.

He is very handsome with a gorgeous black coat, blaze and socks. Magic is not suitable for riding due to ringbone in both front feet.

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-04-00248Lola (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Arthritis 

    Lola is a Liver Chestnut Paso Fino mare. She is registered and has papers. She's 18, but certainly doesn't act like it. She likes attention and is always easy to catch. She can be fussy about picking up her hind feed but has gotten a lot better. Lola is rather fine-boned and small at 14 hands, but she has a big personality! Lola was ridden extensively as a trail and mountain horse but has not been ridden in many years due to her arthritic changes, extensive riding may not be in her best interest. She can be a sassy girl with a lot of spunk and should have a confident handler as she will take advantage of a timid beginner. Lola is not ...

Rescue Me ID: 14-06-04-00246Summer (female)

Horse    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Horses 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, EPM 

    Summer is a 12-year old, 16.2hh, Thoroughbred mare looking for a home with a calm equine companion(s) as well as a horse experienced human family. She was raced as a filly but later fell into neglectful circumstances. When Pasado's Safe Haven rescued Summer she was severely emaciated, but she has made a complete recovery and is a beautiful mare. While she has some physical challenges would make riding difficult for her, she is smart, active and still loves to have a 'job'. Summer has been a wonderful therapy horse as part of an Equine Facilitated Learning program (this is an unmounted program). She is people-oriented and has a kind, calming ... (Read More)energy. Summer will need an owner who is experienced in caring for horses and able to manage her special needs. In 2013 she was diagnosed with EPM (Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis), which can cause neurologic symptoms. She improved with treatment but has not cleared the protozoa and relapses when off her medication. She has been mostly symptom free for some time but she should stay on medication long term to prevent a relapse. Summer's front legs have poor conformation and so her right front knee has slowly broken down and become more bowed over time. This has caused arthritis in her knee as well as difficulty locking her knee to sleep standing up. She wears a supportive knee brace at night to help slow the progression of the condition and aid in her ability to sleep while standing up. She also wears protective boots over her fetlocks to prevent sores from falling to her knees at times when she sleeps. Her activity level needs to be minimized because of this condition (she is not a riding horse) and she should remain on supportive joint supplements but turn out is essential for her emotional well-being. She will need one or more mellow pasture buddies where she has a place to be separated for feeding time at night. She has been pastured with horses much older than her and was very kind and respectful to them. She enjoys attention and would love to have her own person to bond with over ground work, liberty training, trick training or just snuggle time. (Less)

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