    Hi All, I recently came across this beautiful stallion which i want to rescue. I would say rescue, since it's stabled with a tendon injury. I would like some guidance on what sort of injury it is and if the stallion can recover from it. I have walked the horse on halter and shows no signs of...

    Hi everyone, thanks in advance for reading! We have a wild brumby stallion that we rescued from a meat auction. He’s about 3-4 years old (guessing by his teeth) completely unhandled and the only experience he’s had with humans before we got him was being rounded up and scared to death at an...

    So back in May 2019 one of my friends pulled a bred mare from a Kill Pen in Eaton, Colorado. In April 2020 she gave birth to a minimal white buckskin roan filly. I'm now on the hunt for her brand and her past. She takes a saddle after 60 days training but no one has ridden her yet. Help me...

    I’ve encountered two or three horses with similar faces and conformation. Both have been near pony sized, almost horse, or almost pony. Both have also been pintos, though that might be a coincidence. They both have wide foreheads and wide set eyes, with quarter-horse type conformation. I think...
  5. Horse Grooming
    My horse is fine with almost anything - except grooming. Currying or brushing his body is a nightmare. He will bite at the crossties and get very agitated. However once you move onto his hooves or even his tail, he's fine. I've tried to get very soft brushes, but he is still sensitive. He is...

    Hi, I'm new to the whole forum set up so please be patient while I figure it out... 18 months ago I brought my pony home from a local gypsy sale. At the time people in the local area were aware of this herd of neglected ponies and wanted to try and help. However, after these wild ponies...

    Hi, I am rescuing a pony that is located 6-7 hours away from me, I don't fully know this pony I have met him on a few occasions but he doesn't trust people and I suggest he hasn't seen or been in a float for 5-6 years. I am looking at myself and someone else to go pick him up and bring him...
  8. Horse Breeds
    Hey, so the barn I ride at rescues horses, unwanted, slaughter. This one was given to him, he was a show horse (jumper) and not sure the reason the owner no longer wanted him. But I have noticed for previously being a show horse, when riding him he doesn't like to listen and bolts off all the...

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone on the forums might be able to guess what colour this little fellow might turn out to be. I'm not bothered by colour, but I am really curious :'D ** ALSO, please excuse his poor condition. I bought him as a rescue as his previous owner had too many horses and...

    I rescued a gelding of about 3 years and his previous owners had no idea what he was and everyone kind of has their own opinion at my barn. I was just wondering if anyone could give me any ideas? Thanks

    I recently rescued a 20yr old paint gelding. Extremely skinny, had I not rescued him I do not believe he would have made it. I have had him about a month. Here is the problem when I went into his stall about two weeks ago to put a halter on him to let him out he bit me in the chest and shoved...

    Hello, I recently adopted an OTTB from a rescue who has a very faded tattoo. She is on a 60 day trial and I would love to figure out who she is to help in my decision to keep her. Of course that is not the only thing I am looking at but, it would certainly help fill in many of the holes in her...

    I frequently see that people are taking unwanted/unpurchased horses from auctions and things, or saving them from slaughter. I was wondering if anyone knows how that works? I live in MN, if anyone knows about any good resources, I'd love your input! I'm just looking for another project horse...

    Taloua is a 4 year old slaughter rescue mare. Saddlebred is obviously part of her breed, but I'm looking for opinions on what may be in her apart from ASB, or if she's just a poor quality purebred. Looking for educated guesses, not guessing "pinto" because of her coloring, mostly all breeds of...

    Hi all, I just received my stallion back last Friday evening in horrible condition. I had him listed for sale last fall and was contacted in December by a woman wanting him. I explained to her that the most important thing for me was the home he was going to. I have been very specific & turned...
