COMPANION HORSES 

Does your horse need a pasture buddy? Companion horses can be a great way to provide needed socialization for your horse.

Companion horses also make wonderful pets.  Just because a horse can no longer be ridden does not mean they do not enjoy human company or learning something new.  All horses have been cleared medically and are up to date on vaccinations, dewormed and up to date on hoof care . they can pick up all 4 feet, easy to catch, halter and lead, lunge and load in a trailer. Read each horse' bio for more information!

Apollo

AGE: 16

GENDER: Gelding

HEIGHT: 16.3

BREED: Thoroughbred (Appendix)

Bio: Apollo is a sweet soul with a stifle injury that makes him un-rideable. He came to us from one of our partner rescues in Texas. He would make an excellent companion horse for anyone in your pasture. He is not an alpha and knows his place in the herd. He is easy to catch, halter, lead, load in a trailer and stands tied. He loves to be groomed and loved on! Good for the farrier and vet as well. He has lots of love to give and is looking for that special family to call his own, he loves kids too! He has been cleared by the vet to allow kids on him and lead them around your property at a walk or if he chooses to go in to a trot on his own then he can trot, otherwise he would stay at a walk. No event riding though.

Cinna-Rosa

CATEGORY: Companion

AGE: 29

GENDER: Mare

HEIGHT:

BREED: Miniature Horse

Bio: Cinna-Rosa may be an older gal but that does not slow her down one bit. She came to us as an owner surrender. Unfortunately by the time she got to us she had foundered pretty bad. Her hooves were grown out and twisted and she moved very slowly. We worked with our farrier and got her feet under control and she started to be able to walk like a normal mini again. In fact, she now runs freely when we turn her out for her play time every day! She does however require to be sedated for the farrier. Her hooves will always have a slight twist to them, but the vet has made it clear that this is not affecting the quality of her life and she is not in any pain. She is very food motivated so she can easily be caught and haltered with a bribe and then will lead and load in to a trailer with no issues. She loves to be "beautified" and is such a sweet girl. She is our longest miniature resident, having seen many come in after her and leave for their forever homes before her, so we really would love to find her a home soon because she is such a deserving girl.

Tess

CATEGORY: Companion/Lead line

AGE: 28

GENDER: Mare

HEIGHT: 15.3

BREED: Quarter Horse

Bio: Tess is a gentle girl who came to us as an owner surrender and due to a club foot is not cleared for riding. She may be an older girl but that doesn't slow her down any. She is looking for the right family to come along and scoop her up and give her a forever home. She can be caught (it helps to have a little something to bribe her with), haltered, lead and loaded in a trailer. She stands tied and is good for the vet and farrier. She loves to be brushed on and made "pretty" and just needs someone to call her human. Won't you consider giving this sweet girl a spot in your heart?!

Theia

CATEGORY: Companion/Lead line

AGE: 16

GENDER: Mare

HEIGHT: 15.3

BREED: Quarter Horse

Bio: Theia is a special girl who came to us as an owner surrender. She is easy to catch, halter and lead. She loads in a trailer and will stand tied. She loves to be loved on and brushed. She does have string halt which makes her un-rideable. She is good for the vet and does require a little more time and patience with the farrier due to the string halt and picking up her feet. She gets along well with others and is usually the first one in the morning to greet us at her paddock to be let out to play! So will this blondie win her way in to your heart????

Luey

PENDING ADOPTION

CATEGORY: Companion

AGE: 24

GENDER: Gelding

HEIGHT: 15

BREED: Quarter Horse

Bio: Luey came to us on a case out of Eastern Colorado. He arrived to the shelter completely emaciated, looking more like a skeleton and barley able to walk. Even in his condition he still trusted us and knew we were there to help him. From day 1 he won the hearts of every ingle volunteer at the rescue. He is a gentle soul with a story to tell. Due to a completely rotated hoof, likely from an injury that no one cared to have looked at by a vet and poor healing, he is not able to be ridden. This does not take away from the giant love bug that he is though. He also LOVES kids and will always lower his head so that they can give him scratches and rubs! He is easy to catch, halter, lead and load in a trailer. He stands good for the vet and farrier. He just has a limitation as to how much he can handle at one time on his bad hoof. He loves to be groomed and brushed and will do anything for a treat! He gets along well with other horses and does not seem to be an alpha and knows his place in the hierarchy. So are you willing to give this sweet boy a loving home????
