This Old Horse has a limited capacity to accept eligible horses into our program and we maintain a waiting list of wonderful horses looking for good homes.  Some are the horses are fully retired and would make wonderful companion horses or pasture mates.  Some are recovered horses from our rescue program.  Many are retired from full time work and ready for an easy job.


If you are interested in partnering with us to adopt, foster or support any of these horses, let us know and we'll see if we might find a perfect match.

Cobalt is a handsome, 2013 registered American Paint gelding who is looking to join some pasture friends. Cobalt is 15 hands and was a lesson horse for a young girl until he was diagnosed with a left front fractured navicular bone. He wears padded shoes on both front feet, takes a daily dose of Equioxx, and should not be ridden. Cobalt is a little shy and cautious at first, but is gentle and easy to catch and halter. He loves frozen apples!


Cody is arguably one of the most solid and dependable quarter horses you will ever encounter. At 28 years old, this beautiful bay boy has a quiet independence about him that incites awe in to anyone that encounters him. He has been with the same owner since he was 3 years old. He has no health concerns and no history of lameness. Cody is claimed to be rideable, we have not assessed this.


Iron Horse Alteza/Alteza is a lovely gray Andalusian. She was born in 1998 and is 15.2 hands. Alteza was never ridden but does have wonderful manners.She is very sweet and curious. Alteza would like to stay with her good friend Dora.


Iron Horse Llamadora/Dora is a beautiful, 2000, Andalusian at 15.2 hands. Dora was trained and was ridden but it has been 8 years. She could possibly be ridden again if you are willing to take the time and work with her. She would like to stay with her long time friend Alteza.


Poco Bueno Signal/Poco is a 2003, registered QH at 16 hands with a dun stripe. He has some lameness due to mild navicular and arthritis. Poco is sound at the walk and often at the trot and canter. Poco is a lovely trail horse but does need a confident rider. Leisurely and lighter riding would be best.


Rio is a 2000, QH at 16 hands. She is all mare but loves her herd and to be groomed. Rio is truly a pasture princess and would like to continue to be one.


Charlie the Curly is as cute as can be at 14.2 hands and 13 years old. Charlie loves his food and treats but one needs to be careful not to give him too many sweets or grass because it causes laminitis. He would do best on a dry lot. Charlie is smart and energetic and talkative. Charlie does lead and lunge well so a variety of groundwork exercises would be great! At this point, he should not be ridden but is greenbroke. Charlie is looking for someoneto play with. Are you the one?


JJ is as bright as a shiny copper penny and if you 'pick' him up, you will have good luck! He is a 2000, 16 hands, Quarter Horse gelding. JJ has kissing spine but you wouldn't really know. He is pasture sound. JJ is a sweetheart and loves to be loved on. He is good for the vet and farrier and is low in the pecking order. JJ would make a wonderful addition to your family and a great companion for any horse.


Lady is a gorgeous 21 year old 16hh Chestnut Arab X Quarter Horse mare. Lady has had some rough months - neglect, Lyme's disease and now with Cushings. Through all of this, she has remained a loving and kind horse. She has super manners and would be a perfect addition to any herd.


RF Premonition/Prem is a stunning, 2007, 15.1 HH Arabian/Pinto cross. She was shown in halter classes and has been ridden intermittently on the road and in an arena. Prem has not been ridden in a few. With time, patience and groundwork, she would be great! Prem does have a hernia just behind the girth that may need to be fixed. She is a stunner!


Syriana (Syri) is a beautiful Arab/Pinto cross at 15 hands. She was born in 2006 and was started under saddle in 2011. She was only ridden about a dozen times so she is at best green broke. Syri is smart but also needs a lot of patience and consistency to help her be all that she can be. Are you the one?


Spot is a Paint (part TB); 16hh, 1994. Though submissive in the herd Spot loves cows, pigs, dogs, cats & kids. She has excellent manners/attitude & was previously shown under saddle. Spot is not on meds and has had no illnesses past/present. She has a good appetite though no back teeth. Summer heat & flies diminish her appetite, so she loses weight but puts it back on in the fall. Spot is on senior grain & wet down hay cubes. She is unable to be ridden, companion only.
