    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...

    It all started with this horse, a scared rescue from a kill pen auction brought in for rehabilitation and rehoming. They never understand what is happening to them, how they ended up on a lot with masses of other strange and new horses, not knowing their fate once on that trailer to their death...

    Hi to the community! I’m new here, live in Australia, had horses from age 4 until around 30 years ago, but have ridden other people’s regularly since then. We have just moved somewhere that I can have a horse on my own land and I decided I would just get a sensible sh/qh for trail riding etc-...
  4. Horse Conformation Queries and Critique
    Hi All, First time poster and just picked up this rescue boy and looking for some advice. I’m faced with a horse that has a odd body shape and I’d like to know if you think this is because of some poor breeding (being his situation I wouldn’t be surprised) or if I can expect that with weight...

    Quite a few of you saw my last thread on these two, titled "New Rescues - Help!" ( New Rescues - Help! ) and gave me some great advice for how best to rehab these two girls. Today we got them outside and I was able to take a few "before" pictures of them. For anyone who didn't see the last...

    Hello all! I'm pretty much categorized as a lurker on the forum, though I've posted a few times. I currently have two horses, but I just got two more as a sort of impulse decision. Meet Ellie and Basil! Ellie - 7 year old QH/Standardbred mare, probably around 15 hands. She was used as a pack...

    So I've been thinking for a while on this, and I need some advice on it. I have a 16 year old gelding who seems to be forming laminitis. I have been talking to many different farriers in my area about what I could possibly get done for him as in correction shoes and trims. He is the sweetest...

    Hi!! Jack was my graduation present and he’s made a lot of progress! The first picture is when we got him and the last two are him now :) he is the sweetest boy!!

    I'm not sure how many of you remember since it's been several months, but my grandma took in an auction rescue horse around October. For those of you who are new or need a refresher, here's a quick summery. A mare who was nearly skin and bones with last years winter coat still clinging to her...

    Things went differently than expected today. My grandma has been somewhat on the hunt for a new horse to put in with her pony to keep him company. We weren't able to find anything decent for a while, but recently, I saw a lady I know post on FB that she was giving away her mare for free to an...
  11. Horse Jobs Available & Seeking Positions
    So over the last few weeks, I've had a few ideas knocking around in my head and I'd like to get some outside opinions. My grandma loves the main/first idea I had but I think that's mostly cause she has a soft spot for horses and is biased when it comes to me xD Hence why outside thoughts and...

I have a budget since she wants him to go so quickly and it was unexpected for me. Please give me some recommendations or please tell me if...

    Hello everyone! I am trying to think of name for my miniature horse rescue and I need suggestions. Something cute and catchy, but not cheesy or long. My rescue will be focusing on ex-party ponies, which is a very big problem in my area (I live in West Texas). I have been rescuing horses for...

    Attention: Have you ever adopted a horse from a horse rescue facility in Ontario? If so, you are being invited to participate in an online survey.

    Hi everyone! This is my first post here. I rescued this precious mare from a nearby kill lot and there is no information on her at all. The lot estimated her to be 14-16 years of age. My horse knowledgeable friends and farrier are all over the place on their guesses. Care to take a guess...
