|I am trying to find homes for
four miniature horses I rescued almost 3
years ago. I love it if they could stay together or at least in
they have been through enough already. They have to have 24/7
consistent barefoot trims, grass hay, and somone who is kind and
patient, preferably with natural horsemanship training. Serious
inquiries only at Comgabrielle@aol.com.
are all in their winter woolies already, all four slick out
beautiful in the spring. E-mail me for more information.
This is Rik-O-Shea, he will turn 3 years old on St. Patricks day, 2008. He is one of the hooligans, very brave, very smart, and in to everything. His mom Faith was pregnant with him when I rescued her. I started a little parelli with him, very little but he thinks it is great fun, he comes when called, and follows you around like a dog.
This is Rain she will turn 5 years old in 2008, she is very curious , and very sweet. She is a very easy keeper, and gains weight easily. She loves to be groomed, she a very long mane that she loves to have brushed.
This is Cloud, he will turn 4 in 2008, he is another hooligan, very smart, started with a little parelli also, and he loves it, gets bored very easily, thinks everything is a game, and wants you to always chose him.
This is Faith, she is the mother of the above three hoolingans. She is sweet, still a little timid, but better all the time, she's absolutely gorgeous with a beautiful head, the vet guessed she is around 9 years old. She was used as a broodmare and constantly pregnant. She is to never be bred again, ever!!!
|I need to find a good home for Alo (means "Spiritual Warrior"
He has healthy barefeet. He is a registered 14.1 hand Arabian
bloodlines) gelding, foaled 5/30/96.
I've just owned him 6 mos, but the woman I bought him from owned him from birth, and said he had a wire injury to his hind legs at about 2 yo. His LH fetlock is the most severe, and he is currently not rideable. The LH fetlock joint has alot of old scar tissue, is mis-shapen, and the joint holds alot of fluid.
He eats great, and still runs, bucks and plays. I need to find a home where he will have a large turn-out and remain barefoot, both are crucial to his well being. He would probably do best in a mild climate, as he is already showing signs of arthritis.
Although he may improve to be ridden again someday (he is gentle, calm and well-trained), he will never be completely sound (opinion of the vet, chiro and equine touch practitioner who I've had examine him).
I am located in N AZ. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

|I am seeking a boarding facility for my 23 year old Galiceno
She has been receiving the barefoot trim for many years, but was
last winter on rich alfalfa hay. She has recovered well, but needs to
in extensive pasture suitable for a foundered pony (dominated by warm
bunch grasses and a variety of substrates). She will only be happy
with a herd. I cannot find such a home for her near my own home in eastern Illinois. I am willing to maintain responsibility for her and pay board for her care, but I am looking for someone who would watch over her as if she belonged to them, since I will be so far away. You can email me for more information and photos at: email@example.com

He has been barefoot for about 3 years, but we are just now educating
in proper barefoot trimming. Ziggy Zamboni is a 15.3 hand bright
chestnut that was purchased as a 4 year old to be my husbands next
mount. Zig did 3 CTR as a 5 year old and did very well.
in November 1996, he managed to crack his right front navicular bone
racing his buddy in the pasture. He came back and even did
25 mile CTR a couple years later, but we feel he will not stay sound
the rigors of heavy riding. He has been sound for the past couple
years, but doesn't get ridden. Ziggy needs to find a home with
willing to work at retraining him for show or light trail riding.
He is a pleasant horse to be around, likes people, but does require an
experienced rider as he is rather "reactive" to his surroundings!
We are willing to give him to a good home, preferably one that is
to keep him barefoot. Zig lives in SE Iowa.

has had some additional work on his hooves since this photos, but he
still needs more foot work. He is a nice horse, but has been abused and
needs more work than I can give him. (Note: He does lead and he accepts
a saddle, but he has never been ridden here.) He is also very low in

I am asking $500 for him (or make an offer) I will require a short painless questionnaire to weed out killer buyers.

|AQHA 4 year old gelding needs a new home
The owner purchased this young registered gelding a few months ago and sent him to training. Received a call that he was lame. Vet w/x-rays could not determine exact problem but thinks it's early stages of navicular, although navicular bone looks good, according to vet. Possible sidebone, too.
Corrective shoeing has been recommended to this woman but she said she would be willing to GIVE him to the right person who is willing to care for him and do the natural trim/barefoot rehab. He is currently barefoot.
She said he is very sweet and has been started under saddle. Because of time constraints and her strong interest in barrel racing, she didn't think she could keep him.
He is located in northern California and anyone can inquire by emailing her at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org

We impulse bought her at a killer sale last winter and have
