STANDARDBRED-GELDING-7 YRS OLD
Like so many Standardbreds B.B. had a racing career then went on to become an Amish buggy horse. We found him in rough shape standing in a killpen in November after a buggy accident in which he had been impaled in the back leg by one of the shafts. This poor horse was thrown away to be slaughtered, standing in pain in need of medical care. We rescued him, brought him to GER and got him the medical attention that he needed to make a full recovery! He went to a foster for the month of January and was on his way back to GER to meet his new adoptive family! On the way back he fell in route and got his hoof stuck in a small gap under the trailer’s back door. He managed to free himself but cracked his hoof in half in the process. We immediately rushed him to the Myhre Clinic where he underwent surgery to wire his hoof back together. He spent two weeks in the hospital followed by many months of stall rest and small turnout. His hoof has finally grown back, and he is pasture sound now. This poor horse has been through A LOT but through it all he has managed to keep his gentle, kind demeanor. It is finally time for us to find him a home of his own. Right now he is pasture sound and will make someone, who has patience to build him up physically, a great trail horse. In time will be ridable and drivable!
STANDARDBRED-GELDING-20 YRS. OLD-16.3 HH
Big Ben is a sweet, sensitive, and regal horse who is looking for a home as a light trail riding partner. He enjoys walking trail rides with a buddy and is looking for a family of his own.
THOROUGHBRED-MARE-5 YRS OLD
Alena is a gorgeous, super sweet and loving TB who is ready for a home of her own. She arrived from Bastrop Louisiana only being able to walk on three legs---she had somehow lost a large part of her hoof and it has taken more than a year to grow out. Whoever adopts her needs patience and should only walk for a while before asking her to trot. She is sound, but with the weight of a person and if someone asks her to trot too soon, she will regress. The ideal home is one that is light in body weight, experienced and patient! She will blossom in a home of her own!
PONY-GELDING-10 YRS OLD
Cosmo is a super cute red roan paint x pony who is ready for a home of his own. He is interactive and enjoys being the center of attention in the barn. He will always come over to greet you and check out what you are up to! He has insulin resistance and has foundered in his past but is doing well now on a no sugar dry lot combination. He really enjoys giving pony rides to little ones and is green broke so will make someone willing to put the time and training into him a great little pony. He is levelheaded and eager to please. He will also make the ideal companion/pony ride pony for your kids/grandkids!
THOROUGHBRED-MARE-12 YRS OLD
Belle is a beautiful TB mate who has great ground manners. She gets along well with everyone and will be the perfect companion for your horse!
THOROUGHBRED-MARE-12 YRS. OLD-15.3HH
Geneva is a lovely TB mare who is looking for a home as a companion due to arthritis in her back. She is sweet and loving, gets along well with others and is good for the trimmer and vet. She is an easy keeper and would make a great buddy for both you and your horse.
PONY-GELDING-20 YRS OLD
Spike is a calm, gentle pony who is more woah then go. He is friendly and kind and is looking for a kid of his own to love and spoil with his attention. He has had his right eye removed but that does not stop him from being the best partner to learn about horses with and build your little one’s confidence.
