Petfinder Adoptable Horse | Arabian | Monroe, WA | Ego Afire

Ego Afire ("Fire"), is a 12 year old Reg. Arabian gelding, 15.1h, bay with a star and left hind sock. He is by Bacardi Afire out of Neriah and does have papers. He was surrendered by his owner due to finances, and came to us very underweight, with extremely poor feet and a very large untreated sarcoid growing out of his ear. He is now at a healthy weight, his feet are in great shape and his sarcoid has been removed and had several cryotherapy and Xterra treatments and will hopefully not return. He is a very sweet boy who has had some previous dressage training and is very willing and agreeable under saddle. He is a little nervous still but getting better every day. Suitable for an intermediate rider at this point. Sound and healthy and ready for a new home. Adoption application required prior to meeting an adoptable horse. Adoption contract, site check, reference checks required. No breeding
Generally speaking, rescues posting on Petfinder have a formula they follow and they just change the details, especially at the end. They probably just cut and pasted those last three sentences (starting with "Adoption application..." from another ad, most likely a mare's. Just sayin'...

Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

no mice.
I think I've seen two dead ones in the past three years, one left for me as a "prize", and the other being thrown in the air to make it look "alive" for more fun time (read: torture).

Registered AQHA Red Dun Filly

Exceptional filly: "Josie", a 2010 foal -- 2 in April. AQHA registered. We have started her gently with imprinting at birth, ground manners and now easy training so she is greenbroke -- 90 days professional training from Rustic Pine Farms. No cantering yet but a great gaming and performance horse potential. All she needs now is time and miles in the saddle. Champion bloodlines: She is out of Dynamite Jac / Boggie's Flashy Jac; dam: Chic Please/Smart Chic OLena. These are reiners and working cow horses. Josie is a true red dun, big mane and tail, perfect confirmation and very fast. 14.3 hands. Quick turn and stop -- very athletic. Clips, bathes, trailers, stands for the farrier. UTD on shots, worming and hooves. She is a great project horse and will pay back over time -- an intermediate or experienced rider is best. She learns very quickly and is very personable. This is a nice horse and a great deal. Boarding and additional training available. $3500
What the h*ll sort of professional puts 90 days on a year and a half old horse? Idiot.

You're lucky. Of the two cats, I have one mouser. He's a giant fluffball, always been an inside cat until he came to live with us. Now he goes in and out as he pleases and learned that he's a predator. Except not really. He LOVES to catch things, mice, shrews, field rats, brings them inside to show us, and then he promptly lets them go...in the house.

I really think he likes to watch the ensuing panic as we all jump into action. Me trying to herd the dogs into the bedroom and my hubby running around with a cup trying to catch the rodent of the week. During all this, he sits quietly by the door, watching. As far as I know he has never killed anything. But he loves to catch things.

I'm really thinking some people need to go back to the basics of horse colors. This mare is most definitely NOT a sorrel!

[QUOTE=twogeldings;759906]She's just a regular trail horse, not too spooky, just 'general'. Around here, your lucky if you get $600-$800 for a good 'general' horse 5-12 years old. Since she's not a trained roping, barrel, head/heel horse, and she's considered 'old', she's going to have a really tough time selling her. I was darned lucky to get $600 for my four year old general mare, and she's broke enough for children and green beginners to ride.

Ohohoh, I almost forgot about this guy:
"Oreo is a 4 year old paint mustang stallion. He stands 14 hands tall and is green broke but never finished... He never bucked or even got skittish when I saddlebroke him.
He threw a beautilful paint colt with a 4 year old quarterhorse mare this year and I just seem to get my kids to ride him and finish training him so I want to find him a good home with someone
that will be able to finish training him and ride him. He comes to the fence when I call and loves to be scratched and rubbed but I just dont have time to finish him out and dont have
the heart to cut a horse that throws such beautiful colts. "

"I don't have the heart to cut an unpapered, barely broke, poorly put together 'mustang' (probably just a poorly bred QH) because he makes paint babies."

I mean really. I bet he would make a fine riding gelding, but a stallion? Nu uh. If he's so sweet and gentle, castrate him now before it's too late.
Paint Mustang Stallion 4 Years Old Green Broke[/QUO

A horse doesn't have to be papered to be a good horse. Also, nowhere in the ad does he say it's "poorly put together". Maybe it's a gorgeous horse who does throw great unregistered colts. Are you just assuming it's poorly put together because it has no papers?

Sorry, I made a mistake on that last comment. That was a quote, only the last two lines of that are from me.
