THE WAIT ROOM

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.

Shiloh

Shiloh is a 2003, 15ish hh, brown and white Paint gelding. Shiloh is playful and will poke around to see what’s up. This curiosity has him a tad overweight as he will help himself to another horse’s grain. Shiloh had some police horse training. Shiloh has laminitis which may be better controlled through ground exercise, diet, farrier and pain reliever. Unless Shiloh’s laminitis improves, considerably, he should not be ridden. Shiloh needs you to bring out the best that he can be.

Dakota

Dakota is a 2002, 15.2hh, buckskin gelding. He is low in the pecking order and is underweight due to herd mates taking his feed. He had some police training. He has navicular, which is better managed when he is on a sugar-free diet and Equioxx could provide better pain relief. Dakota should not be ridden, he will melt your heart as he is charming, friendly, calm, content and not easily spooked.

Chakka

Chakka is a buxom black Percheron/Shire cross at 16.3 hands born in 1996. She is sweet, well mannered, and an easy keeper. Chakka can still be ridden though nothing too strenuous. Chakka does have mild allergies that can affect her breathing at times. A little medication helps to clear that up. Chakka is best friends with Junior and is his eyes in new situations. Junior and Chakka must stay together. If you have a love of the big horses and the space, these 2 are for you!

Junior

Junior is not a little boy at 18 hands. He is a handsome (even with burrs) 1997 Percheron. Look at that tail! Junior can only be ridden by a very experienced rider. He is picky about who is on his back and with his eyesight waning, he needs someone that he knows can take care of him. Junior has great manners and is calm. He could stand all day to be groomed. He must stay with his good friend Chakka. She is his eyes in new situations and lovely. If you like big, these two are for you.

Meadow

Meadow is as fresh and lovely as the locale her name suggests. She is a 15 hh,1998, Registered Bay Tobiano Paint. Meadow has RAO (recurrent airway obstruction) and takes a decongestant to help. Meadow is up to date on all vaccines, worming and dental floats plus sees her farrier as needed. Regardless of her name, pasture can aggravate Meadow’s breathing issues. Meadow’s ground manners are perfected. She loves kids, cows, dogs and cats.

Twister

Twister is a hunky, 2001, bay, Morgan at 15.2hh. As you can see, he loves to eat and is an easy keeper! Twister was ridden at the Heartland Girls Ranch until he hurt his hips. He should not be ridden. Twister is a fun guy to be around but can take advantage. He needs you to be firm when handling him. Twister enjoys mares and geldings and people. Let him twist his way into your heart!

Morgan

You would think with a name like Morgan, that he would be all Morgan but no. This shiny, chestnut 1998 gelding is a Morab at 15hh. Morgan was a lovely riding horse but after a bad injury to his knee, the arthritis has crept in to the point where he should no longer be ridden. He still has good manners and loves to be in a mixed herd. Morgan enjoys people and horses and would love to spend time with you!

Spider

Spider is about 24 years old and a 15hh gray QH gelding. Spider has woven an interesting web over his lifetime. He may have been abused by his original owner but he thrived and participated in team roping in his teens. Until recently, his life partner was a sheep. Spider is an easy keeper, robust, sound and has great ground manners. This is one Spider you will want to be around.

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 but 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!

Alteza

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.

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.

Rio

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

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

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

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.

Premonition

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!

Spot

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.
