We just adopted out two mares, Phantom and Cali.  They went to a farm in North Carolina with lots of pasture and horses to play with.

Volunteer Orientation

Tomorrow, we welcome anyone who would like to volunteer with a horse rescue. We will begin at 2pm at Merry Oaks Farm. If you would like to join us and need directions, please email us at rescueahorse@hotmail.com.

  1. Phantom  and Callie (need to adopt together) Рmares, upper teens, western, trail horses.  Phantom is a black & white paint, Callie is a tri color, and they are sisters.
  2. Tiny Tim Рanglo arab gelding, born in 2007.  He can be shy and he is just under 15 hands due to malnutrition.  VERY SWEET:)  And a fantastic boy in the saddle.
  3. Marley Рblack and white paint saddlebred gelding (1994).  Needs groceries before we will ride him, but he is broken to ride and said to be amazing under saddle.
  4. Riddick Рquarter horse (2002) and recently gelded in early January.  Very calm for being a stallion so long.  Also ridable.
  5. Minnie Mae – is a for sale mare pony ($800)
  6. Sassy Рis a bay mare TWH (1985) and ridable
  7. Bella Рis a black mare TWH (2003) and ridable

We are happy to report we have had a few recent adoptions;)

Doug and Betsy have adopted Butterbean¬†(formerly known as Bute), Ellie, and Arabella.¬† All of them will still be at the farm, but now have very loving “parents”.¬† Doug and Betsy do and amazing job at caring for them.¬† Doug, Betsy and Bonney have become our resident horse pediatrist¬†for helping to care for abscess.¬† They have done such an amazing job rehabing these horses with the feet issues.¬† Thank you:)

Chase and Austin have also been adopted by the Perry family.  They will also remain at the farm until they can gain some more weight.  We are hopeful and think they will be able to go to the Perry farm in April.  We would also like to Thank the Perry Family for their hay donation.

Diesel was also adopted out… I’m going to miss my “Denis the Menace”.¬† He is going to a gentleman that has several years of experience with horses and he fell in love with Diesel, who wouldn’t though?

Busy day on the farm

SurryRescue1This lovely little lady was brought to the farm yesterday.  We also have six others who came too and they all need groceries.  All of them seem very kind, but it is going to take us some time to put weight on them.  This little mare is about 250 lbs. under weight.  The farm they came from still has several more horses and animal control is handling the issues.  We are just taking in the ones they allow us to have.  We are told that the farm owner became overwhelmed with the number of horses she was trying to help.  We don‚Äôt know the whole story, but we are glad to have them at the farm where we can make sure they are fed, vet checked, and sheltered.  I will be at the farm in the morning and I look forward to seeing our amazing volunteers.  These amazing volunteers worked so hard today to make sure we had cleaned out, freshly bedded stalls, fresh buckets of water, and yummy alfalfa hay.  Two of our local tack shops, Sesroh‚Äôs and Horse & Hound also made donations to us for the rescues.  Without everyone coming together, this would not be possible.  You are all amazing!
