1.) un-named BLM Mustang gelding – dark bay, beautiful – very shy and nervous around people, little to know handling – needs experienced natural horsemanship trainer to love him and give him the TLC and socialization training he deserves – during our visit, he shyed away from us in the stall but did absolutely nothing wrong – it was not HIS choice to be taken off the range and forced to live with someone who didn’t want to give him the time and attention he deserved, and it Certainly was not his choice to be thrown away in an animal shelter to be standing in a stall at risk for euthanasia or adoption by a bad person – please consider saving this horse’s life and giving him the choice he deserves….
2.) Cody- gorgeous, sweet, personable, friendly TB gelding – was originally confiscated for starvation and neglect in terrible condition – much better now – 17 years old – approximately 16-17 hands tall – average energy but very easy and calm to handle on leadline, very respectful and appears to have great foundation training – likes kids and attention, no fear of people – has a nasty looking puffy wound on one leg, but it does not impact his ability to lay down, roll, get up, walk, trot, lope at liberty and looks to have no pain or stiffness, and be serviceably sound – good feet and current on everything – ready to go to his new home as a trail riding or pleasure riding partner – adoption fee is $200 and very worth it – he is chestut with a long stripe down his nose
3.) un-named small TB gelding – around 15 hands – 17-20 years old – was confiscated from an owner who was arrested for drunk and disorderly behavior while riding him – severely neglected and emaciated a month ago – doing better now – average energy but low in the herd hierarchy and seeks comfort from his leader and/or herd – not unmanagable, but would benefit from some join up games to realize that the person is his leader/partner, rather than his stall mate horse – very sweet and gentle boy – easy to handle his feet – very thin, but gaining weight steadily – feet were very, very long a month ago, but trimmed since then and doing better – this horse has straight legs, good feet, and looks to be totally sound – just needs groceries, someone to love him, and someone to spend time with him – he will make an excellent partner for a Parelli type person or someone who believes in relationship training between human and horse – adoption fee is only $100 – Our rescue will adopt this gelding and place him in full training with our trainer if we find a sponsor for him – Contact us if you would like to sponsor or provide sponsored foster care for this little guy – Let’s give him a name, hm?
4.) Snickers – beautiful and kindhearted, mellow 22 y/o Saddlebred gelding – approximately 14.2 to 15 hands – beautiful liver chestnut color – straight legs and sound in the feet, but has an injury of unknown etiology that makes it sore for him to lie down and roll – he is able to do it, but when he stands back up, he is stiff and sore in the left hind quarters – He would make a babysitter type horse for a child or beginner if he was healed – current on everything and available for adoption but does require chiropractic or bodywork to help heal him and make him whole again before riding or exercising him – This horse was surrendered with his former horse buddies, Al and Kellie. Kellie was humanely euthanized at the shelter due to pain from arthritis and swayback. Al was adopted. Snickers is very sad and misses them a lot. He needs a family or child to love him and mend his broken heart. Our rescue will adopt this gelding and place him in sponsored foster care if we find a sponsor for him – We will work with Dr. Fenton (Vital Equine) to heal him with sponsorship. – Contact us if you would like to sponsor or provide sponsored foster care for this beautiful boy – He deserves a second chance at life. Can you help?
5.) Toodles – gorgeous mare, age 15, QH/Arab cross – big stocky QH body in a mocha brown color almost grullo, small dainty Arab head – This is a big mare, probably around 15.3 to 16 hands – she has been in the shelter for nearly a year now (Aug. 2012) and is more than ready to find her permanent loving home – Toodles has a former injury to the front left fetlock, rendering her fused around the front of the fetlock. She is perfectly capable of running, bucking up her heels, chasing butterflies, rolling, and getting back up, in the round pen at liberty, but due to this former injury, it is probably best if she maintains a light riding job on flat only, and not climbing or jumping, no rodeo, etc. – Toodles is current on everything and would be a wonderful partner for a person who practices natural horsemanship and wants a good friend in their horse – Toodles is not a warm and affectionate mare, but she is silly, playful, and respectful, and would make a great partner. Adoption fee is only $150 for her.
All of these horses qualify for the “Another Chance For Shelter Horses” Training Program at Brass Ring Sun Farms.
