Pasture Mates for Adoption

Gunner

Birth Year: 2010

Height: 14.2 Hands

Breed/Sex: Appaloosa gelding

Gunner was an owner turn in situation. He was deemed "wild" and "crazy" and "dangerous" and his sides were crushed in from previous attack by a stallion when Gunner was just a colt. The woman said she had been advised, by two farriers to shoot the "dangerous animal."   We welcomed Gunner to our rescue group and he was neither crazy, nor wild, nor dangerous but his had been a life of trials and tribulations. Three years later and Gunner has learned that not all people are bad and being groomed feels good, even when done gently over his severely crushed chest walls and neck. Through his situation we have been reminded that every life matters and love conquers all.  Gunner is fully sponsored until he finds his forever home.

Ruby Louise

Birth Year: 2000

Height: 14 Hands

Breed/Sex: Arabian mare

Ruby Louise came to LEARN from Orangeburg County Animal Control as a starvation case. Today, she is fully rehabilitated and ready for her new home!  Ruby would make a wonderful companion horse, as she is not rideable due to a tendon issue with her back leg.   Ruby is very sweet and an "in your pocket" mare who pastures well with other mares.   Ruby Lousie is available to adopt, sponsor, or foster.  

Goldie

Birth Year: 1996

Height: 15.1 Hands

Breed/Sex: Palomino mare

Goldie is an amazingly sweet mare who arrived at LEARN with nine other starved and abused horses from a local animal control seizure case in January of 2016. Not only was Goldie emaciated,  she was full of sand and parasites, and very weak making hers a very difficult recuperation.   Once returned to good health she presented with lameness issues. X-rays revealed Goldie suffered from a pre-existing fracture of the coffin bone in her right front hoof. With weight management and anti-inflammatory medications as needed, Goldie is sound and loves her pasture mates and being groomed.  Goldie is fully sponsored while she waits for her forever home.
