Show Me Your Rescue.

I do not have a rescue horse. I may feel like I rescued him but he is not technically a rescue. I am looking at rescues in the state for horse number 2 once we are ready for it.

I want to see your rescue horse and hear it's story! Please share your experience and beautiful friend with me.

Back in '06 my aunt took in a bunch of "rescue" horses. They were owned by a lady in Ontario who did a very scabby business of breeding Paints & QH's. She had well over 100 head & not enough feed though she continued to breed them. I wont go into detail about the horror stories of her place...

Anywho..they took in 13 mares, 2 of which were in foal. They had all travelled 2 days nonstop from Ontario to Alberta crammed inside a 6-horse trailer
Out of all the mares (ages ranging from 2 years to 21) only 4 were approachable & several werent halterbroke. Though there were a few that had alright weight (including the 2 preggos) the majority were skinny, covered in matted fur and feces and none had had their feet clipped in a long time.
One mare had bad arthritis & could hardly walk while another suffered from a shoulder problem.
All horses were registered and so my aunt kept a few later on for breeding, but most were eventually sold over a period of 3 years.

Here are some pics of a couple of the mares, though I didn't get alot from when they first arrived. Most of my photos are from when they were all fat & healthy again
This is a pic of a few mares gathered around the water, about a week after arrival.

This was the oldest mare & was in the worst condition. We named her "the Grulla". I know - very inventive!

This is her a year later..
This is one of the mares after foaling. She was one of the prettiest, I think, though she was nuts!

Wow the paints are beautiful and the Grulla grew into gorgeousness quite nicely! Thank you so much for sharing!

Yes she was a pretty old gal. Very sharp facial features lol. We later discovered that she was very well broke & she was even ridden as a beginner's mount by her new owners :)

This is Persia our Percheron/QH. She came from a rescue in California that got her from a percheron breeding ranch that went out of business. Her name was Cookie when we got her but we didn't think she looked like a Cookie so we called her Persia (for percheron) while my husband was thinking of a name. Needless to say he never came up with one. She wasn't really in bad shape when we got her except her mane and tail were pretty ratty. She is really aggressive with her food so who knows what she had to deal with at the ranch. The pictures are from a couple weeks after we got her.

This is the rescue mare I am leasing I don't have any before pictures but this is her now when they got her she had to mane or tail and she was covered in wounds from other horses she would buck and didn't like to move forward. Now that we are getting her back to liking work she has showed us she knows poles to a T and barrels somewhat. I plan on making her my barrel horse if she likes it which she seems to she really hunts for barrels even if we arent doing the actual pattern lol
