MOONLIT TORI 
Age
: 19 Years Old (March 30, 2002)
Height: 16hh
Suitability: Companion OR Light Riding At A Walk

Tori is a gorgeous mare who needed a bit of a leg up before she was ready to find her adoptive family! Tori was rescued from a kill pen in the summer of 2020, but found herself in another less than ideal situation this spring and we were able to offer our support and a place for Tori to come and get the next steps in rehabilitation that she needed. he had a long racing career, with 267 starts and 40 wins; before disappearing and likely being an Amish driving horse for a number of years. Tori does have knees that show wear, tear and scarring; as well as some pelvic and stifle soreness. 

She will need a continued regular farrier treatments to bring her feet around, as she was not done for many months before her arrival. She also would benefit from fairly regular massage, chiropractic and/or PEMF therapies to continue to help balance out her pelvis and keep her feeling comfortable for the long term future.

Tori is currently outside 24/7 and loves it. She is good in a stall as well though. She stands for hours in cross ties and loves attention. She currently is grained twice a day to continue working on her weight build up; and being outside 24/7 allows her to exercise at her leisure to build topline. Tori is brave, willing and an overall wonderful horse to have in your family! She is high on the pecking order and will put others in their place; but doesn't go looking to cause trouble. She is not for a timid handler, as she can be pushy and will "make the rules" if she is allowed to. 

 

Tori loves to explore trails but is quite forward so needs an experienced rider. She is sensitive to cinch up though, as well as when you put a heel in her side to ask her to move - likely due to what we suspect is a hormonal imbalance that we have been treating. She is a leader on trails and will go faster than a walk if allowed to - we do however recommend her in a walk only home as she's not quite 100% sound at the trot.

 

We know that not everyone is looking to add an older horse to their family but we hope that someone out there will open their hearts to this beautiful mare who has seen so much hardship in her life - she's ready to be showered with love in a true retirement!

IDONTWANABEFRIENDS
Age
: 9 Years Old (April 27, 2012)
Height: 17.1hh
Suitability: Companion - For Now

Taco is a giant gelding with a heart of gold, however life over the past few years has not been kind to him, and he has faced a long road to recovery. Taco is one of the slaughter pipeline saves that your donation dollars went towards helping back in June. He arrived to our rehabilitation program after completing his quarantine period in early July. His 17hh lanky body is a lot to fill but he continues to gain weight steadily on a careful program to avoid overfeeding too quickly.  


He spent his first 6 weeks learning how to be a horse again. He feared human contact, certainly could not handle therapy treatments (partially because he was skin and bone) and has clearly seen some terrible things in his life the last little while. We feared that Taco's rehabilitation was extensive and long-term, however as the weeks have gone on - Taco has shown us his resilience and his eagerness to come out of his shell. At this time, we feel that he has reached maintenance rehabilitation stage and simply needs time, food and TLC. We would love for him to find a family to grow and bond with before he becomes too connected to his foster home and struggles with rehoming down the road.

Taco does come with stipulations for his adoption - the feed and care necessary to get him completely healthy is paramount, but he will also benefit from PEMF, massage therapy and chiropractic appointments throughout the next few months. He still has a lot of sore body parts that need to be worked on. He was ridden at the slaughter lot, however did not understand what it was all about. We feel he has the potential to be a trail/pleasure horse in the future but that is a long term goal and not something that will be happening in the next little while.

We also would like Taco to be adopted with one of his current foster pasture mates - Oliver or Tori - as he will adjust better to a new home if he goes with a friend. He is a nervous horse and fidgets quite a bit, so needs an experienced handler who is quiet and will not get mad at him for not being perfect. We do not recommend him to a home with young kids as he may not mean to, but his size and nervousness could accidentally injure someone. 

Taco needs consistency and someone to bond with who will show him that people in the world are not mean to him any longer, and that only good things will come from his future. We hope that someone out there has followed Taco's journey and is willing to open their home to him and one of his pasture mates.

FUNNY MAGIC
Age
: 13 Years Old (June 4, 2008)
Height: 14.1hh
Suitability: Companion / Light Riding or Driving

Peanut is the cutest little mare! She is an extremely quiet and friendly easy keeper who is looking for a companion or very light working home who won't push her too much. In July of 2020 she had a small tear in the superficial digital flexor tendon on her right front. The tendon healed however in March 2021, similar swelling appeared in her left front. Both front suspensories are currently cool with no swelling, but there are no guarantees she will not have flair ups. She has been sound throughout all of the flair ups and her owners have been proactive in care to ensure she stays sound and happy! She is well broke to pleasure drive, but had not made it to her under saddle training before showing signs of inflammation, and has been a companion since July 2020. Peanut is up to date on her shots, deworming, teeth, farrier and is ready to find her perfect match!

LEO
Age
: Approximately 20 years old
Height: Approx. 15hh
Suitability: Companion 

Leo is a companion gelding whose owner is unfortunately no longer able to keep him and he needs to have a place to go by NOVEMBER 30, 2021. He does have a brand but it is illegible and his owners think he will not stand to have it clipped to pull his ID. They do not know his history as they got him a few years ago from someone who also did not know much about him. He has simply been a companion so unknown if he has ever been ridden or driven before. He has been saddled and didn't react, so likely has done something in his past. He is a very anxious horse and herd bound. He can act studdish around mares, so would do best in a gelding only herd. He will stand for the vet and farrier, and is up to date on his shots and feet. He does get medications for mild heaves but otherwise is outside 24/7 and is a fairly easy keeper. Great companion horse for someone who has a place for him and just wants to let him retire and be a horse!

SHEMAKESMEGRIN
Age
: 17 years old (March 30, 2004)
Height: 15.3hh
Suitability: Pleasure Driving or Riding

Grim is a lovely mare who has been a loved member of the WETRA program over the past couple years. With their program going in a different direction, they are hoping to find a family who would welcome Grim into their lives. She has extensive driving experience and is great to drive, but can be a bit impatient when asked to stand still - she likes to be on the move! She has also been ridden, but only a handful of times so is still considered green. She is UTD on her farrier (she currently has 4 shoes on), veterinary care and deworming. Grim is turned out daily with mares and stalled at night, she does get a bit of grain each day. Grim is a typical mare and can be a bit saucy around other horses but is very safe to handle and will stand for hours to get attention. This is a rare chance to get a super nice mare who has extensive experience around different people and a busy atmosphere!
