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.

Liberty's Sunshine Sonata/Sunny

Sunny is a gorgeous 2007, buckskin, Paso Fino mare. She has good manners but has no training under saddle other than she has had a saddle on her back. Sunny is smart and willing to learn and if she is anything like her dam, she will be amazing to ride. Her one quirk is that she does not like the trailer. She will definitely need some training there. Sunny loves attention and is kind, especially to her blind friend, Taz. They would like to stay together.

Dans Star Taz/Taz

Taz is an eye-catching, 1998, blind, leopard appaloosa gelding. Other than his lack of vision, Taz is a well mannered, well trained, healthy horse. He was just ridden bareback by our foster. Of course, Taz does need to build trust with you first. Taz's only problem is that he tends to walk into things. A paddock/pasture with few obstacles is best. Taz would like to stay with his good friend Sunny. They make a fun pair with different challenges.

True

True is a handsome, mid-teens, 15 hh, Arabian gelding. There is very limited information about his history, but you can tell that it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows. True is ridden in an arena but he is very unsure of himself. He really needs a confident, consistent, kind and patient person in his life to bring out the best in him. Basically start from the ground up. True is well worth the extra work. He is a beautiful mover and so wants to trust. Are you his next True blue friend?!

Eternal Vandalia/Vandalia

Vandalia is a 1993, sorrel, registered Quarter Horse mare at 15.2 hands. She has a swayed back, bad teeth, slightly cracked hooves and arthritis but these are all signs of her survival and wisdom. Vandalia loves to be groomed and will stand quietly. She has a very calming energy about her. Therapeutic even. Vandalia is a good girl but does need some extra patience doing her hooves. It is all her imperfections that make her the perfect companion horse for you and your herd.

Theo

Theo is a stunning Arab around 15 hands. His age is a mystery but probably late teens. Theo came in with a body condition score of 2.5. He certainly does not look that way anymore. He is perfect! We believe that Theo was ridden in the past but has just been hanging out the last 3 years. He loves to run in the pasture and is a sight to behold. Theo has nice manners but a bit anxious for the farrier, loves attention, and can be in charge. He could be a project horse or a friend.

Sunny

Sunny is a 1991 Quarter Horse at 15 hands. He is an awesome trail horse but at his age, the trails need to be shorter with a lot of walking and a little trot and lope tossed in for fun! He has wonderful manners and is really great with kids. Sunny does get 10 pounds of grain/day due to lack of teeth. He still enjoys a little hay to chew on and loves to munch grass. Sunny would like to stay with is buddy, LaBraun, a great trail horse. If you need a some sunshine, you will want these two.

LaBraun

LaBraun is a 2000 Quarter Horse at 15 hands. He gets much shinier and brawnier in the summer. LaBraun is an excellent trail horse but is not in a big hurry. He does have a little arthritis so lots of walking with a little trot or lope thrown in for fun. La Braun has excellent manners but does get impatient if no one is paying attention to him. He wants to stay with his really good friend, Sunny, an excellent trail horse. If you are look for 2 then you want LaBraun and Sunny!

Rosie Z

Rosie is an amazing 32 year old, 14.3 hands, chestnut, Arabian mare! She is sound, healthy, and a fairly easy keeper. Rosie went on her first trail ride of the spring and was so good. She walked and trotted but her owner did not want to canter but Rosie sure did. Rosie would be great for easy rides by just about anyone. Rosie also has great manners and is sweet! She is the whole package! Life will be rosier with Rosie!

Maggie

If you like long leisurely walks, Maggie is for you! She is a 1994, lovely chestnut, 14 hands, Quarter Horse mare. Maggie is healthy and sound but is just getting older so needs soaked alfalfa cubes to eat and easy going trail rides. Her only downside is that she gets nervous being saddled. Once on, she is good to go. Her owner thinks that she must have had a traumatic experience when she was younger. Maggie would also make a lovely pasture mate because she is sweet, sweet, sweet!

Rosie

Rosie is a lovely 15 hand, 2001, red roan, Quarter Horse looking for a new home. She is a well-broke horse but has navicular. The vet feels with proper shoeing, she could be ridden. Rosie has awesome manners making this sweet flower a wonderful companion for you and your horse(s). Life will be rosier with Rosie around!!

Freckles

Freckles is a 1990, Morgan cross, at 15 hands. Freckles is a barn favorite! He would love to have his own special someone in his life. Other than needing extra grain, he is healthy and sound. Freckles is so cute too! How can you resist not having him in your herd?!

Sputnik's Bonanza

Sputnik's Bonanza is a 1998, shiny red dun, Quarter Horse at almost 16 hands. Bonanza has wonderful manners and is very calm. He is more animated around water - loves to play and splash and blow bubbles. Bonanza has navicular but is pasture sound. He cannot be ridden but Bonanza still likes a job such as walks, being ponied, or ground work. Maybe you could teach him some new tricks?! Bonanza likes to be groomed and would enjoy hanging out. Add him to your herd and heart!

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.

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.
