Horses and Donkeys
Acton: (Feb. 3, 2016), Tobe and Mahogany horses are in need of a new home as their current family is experiencing hardship. Tobe is the horse on the left. He’s currently in his 20s, and his current guardians have had him over ten years. He is a thoroughbred rescue, an abused and worn out jumper their veterinarian called “a walking trainwreck” when they got him. He’s no longer a trainwreck but still cannot be ridden. Tobe has poor balance at rest; in other words, he falls. He is also a bit hyper and would do well in the company of other horses. The female horse in the photo on the right is Mahogany. She is 20 years old and her current guardian has had her since she was six years old. Mahogany used to be used in dressage and jumping but hasn’t been ridden in several years, though she would probably enjoy walking on a trail.

Edwards AFB: (Jan. 19, 2016), Faith is an approximately twenty year old mare who was recently rescued from a livestock auction. Her new guardian loves Faith dearly but believes she would benefit in a more experienced horse home. Faith is lame due to low ringbone. Some days are better than others and Faith still has the spunk to trot around and even sometimes run when she is in the turnout. Faith is a sweet girl who loves to receive love, and she will do about anything for a treat! Since Faith has been used and abused in her life, she would benefit from a home with horse experience.

Rockford: URGENT (March 28, 2016), These two bonded, blind Appaloosa horses need re-homing due to their humans’ upcoming move out of state on April 15 and not being able to financially care for them any longer. The horses’ names are Bonnie and Joe. They are a mare and gelding and both are about 15 years old. Joe has been blind for about 3 years and Bonnie for about a year. A veterinarian was not able to make a diagnosis as to the blindness but they appear to be in good health otherwise. They are good with other horses, donkeys, dogs, and children. Joe does not like being in a stall and prefers open spaces. Bonnie loves being brushed.

Bath: There are several Thoroughbred horses available for adoption at the Finger Lakes SPCA. Some of the horses came from a cruelty case involving 80 Thoroughbreds who were rescued from severe starvation and neglect. The horses have received lots of handling and care since the rescue and are ready for permanent homes. They range in age, color and temperament. If you can provide one, or more, of these horses with the loving home they deserve, please contact Vicki at the Finger Lakes SPCA.

Poyntelle: (June 20, 2016), Mystic – (JC Name: Girl George, chestnut mare born 2008, 16.0 hh) has survived starvation and neglect and is now looking for a forever home as a companion or cuddle buddy. This charming mare was seized from a “rescue” that wasn’t feeding their horses. We have absolutely fallen in love with her. She’s miraculously pulled through and blossomed into an intuitive, fun bright and friendly lady. We hoped her soundness issues could be overcome for her re-homing, however she cannot be ridden. She has kissing spine and subsequent hind-end issues but is sound and happy to live in a pasture.
