PONG-GELDING-20 YES OLD
Cornbread came to GER very thin so is still putting weight now but otherwise is healthy and ready for his new home! He would do best in a situation with one other friend, he can get anxious with multiple horses. He is quite playful and can be competitive with other geldings. He has been ridden a little bit and will be further evaluated as he puts on more weight. Currently he is recommended for an intermediate rider 5’5 or shorter and under 120 lbs.
Sydin is a beautiful Arabian cross that is looking for a home with an advanced intermediate rider. He loves people and attention and is a happy, interactive horse! He is great at groundwork, long-lining and is a safe ride (no rear or buck). He was gelded later in life and his stallion drive for the mares never left so is looking for a home without mares on the property. He would do best in a situation where he can be next to a buddy but have his own paddock/space.
This beauty queen came from a killpen with her foal. She has been weaned and now is her time to shine! She needs a home with someone with patience and a quiet manner to continue her training and she will bloom! She is willing and ready for a family of her own.
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!
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!
MaMa Cass is a sweet mare who gets along well with everybody. She is easy to handle and work around and loves being groomed and pet! She is available as a companion and will be evaluated as a walking/lead line horse in the spring if she is still here.
Benjamin is a super sweet and affectionate companion. This sweet gelding has really settled into outdoor life and would do best living outside 24/7 with access to a run in. He does have previous heaves which occasionally flares up to coughing when stabled inside but has not had any issues when outside. Benjamin has not yet been evaluated for riding; he will be in the spring if he hasn’t been adopted. He currently is sound and available as a companion.
HACKNEY PONY-MARE- 20 YRS OLD
Ember is a sweet petite pony who will make a great companion for any horse. She is calm and gentle to work with on the ground and cross ties. She enjoys being spoiled and groomed but is not broke to ride. She is at the bottom of the pecking order and her quiet and sweet demeanor will melt your heart.
MORGAN CROSS-MARE-16 YRS OLD
Winter is looking for a place to call home! This beautiful 16 year old Morgan Cross mare is available for adoption as a companion only. Winter has excellent ground manners, is good for the vet and farrier, and loves working in hand at the walk. Unfortunately, we recently discovered that Winter has a condition called Degenerative Suspensory Ligament Desmitis and cannot be ridden. DSLD is a progressive disease, but Winter appears to be in the early stages and is still very happy and comfortable in her everyday life. Winter deserves a family of her own, to love and cherish her for the rest of her years. Do you have room in your heart and barn for this beauty?
She is currently located in Maine at Horses with Hope.
THOROUGHBRED-MARE-12 YRS OLD
Belle is a beautiful TB mare who is looking for a home as a companion due to arthritis. She is an easy keeper (no special medication or supplements), stands on the cross ties and is good for the trimmer/vet. She gets along well with everyone and will make the perfect companion for your horse! She really seemed to enjoy doing horse agility and will happily give bareback leadline pony rides to a small, light child.
Juniper is a super sweet pony that was pulled from a killpen with a foal in toe. She has a handicapped back leg as you can see here but she isn't in any pain and manages well in her own way. She will be a wonderful companion for your horse and will bring a little bundle of joy to your farm at the end of May!
