I don't know if this would actually qualify since we didn't actually get her from a rescue. However, she did belong to a friend and had simply been turned out to pasture with no handling for a few years. She was 7 years old and had been bred by the QH stud that she had been turned out with. Her owner was planning to just take her to auction and you can probably guess what would have happened to a 7 year old mare that was halter broke and nothing more. Anyway.
