CABOT FRENCH PEPPER x NEMOURS MARCHIONESS
Pedigree
Fostered in NH
Rescued July 2020
Adoption Fee: $700

Mindy was an Amish buggy horse from the age of 3 until she became too sore for road use a couple of years ago. The Amish family's veterinarian suspected suspensory issues. Mindy was turned out to pasture and had one foal in 2018. She never regained soundness for road use and was sent to an auction when breeding attempts in 2020 were unsuccessful.

The most recent recorded owner described her as a very sensible mare that was safe for everyone to drive when she was sound. His teenage nephews used to ride her, and he thinks she is likely kid safe to the point that if someone fell off she would just stop and stand there. He reported one could do almost anything with her and said she is easy to catch. We will not know if she could be sound for future riding or driving until our veterinarian is able to evaluate her. She lived in a pasture with free access to a shelter and does fine in turnout with mares or geldings but keeps to herself. The former owner said she ties and cross ties, gets right on the trailer, and does not crib or have other vices.

JRH Are You Kiddin' Me

2013 Chestnut Registered Morgan Gelding, height : TBD
Dragonmeades Axios x Ring Girl
Pedigree
Boarded in PA
Rescued August 2020
Adoption Fee: Special Needs Horse - The adoption requirement that he receive regular vet exams for his eyes and treatment as designated by the vet, with annual update reports to Forever Morgans.

Kid is described by a former owner as a fun horse to drive who loves attention. He is blind in one eye but still drives. An Amish buggy horse, he came with a note that said he is not sound for long trips and balks if not handled properly. For that reason, he is best suited for an experienced handler. We were told that starting him off uphill sometimes triggered the balking but that he was fine for hooking; doesn't take a hold; and is generally traffic safe, although he might look at a scary vehicle or puddle. It is not known whether Kid was taught to ride. We do know that he spent a short time at a professional training barn as a 2-year-old but was sold before his education progressed beyond longlining because his owners were looking for a different type of horse. He had no vision or soundness issues then.

A former owner from several years ago said Kid tied, cross tied, and loaded on trailers at that time. He did not crib and had no other vices at that point. Because he recently came into our rescue, we have not had a chance to evaluate him yet.

2005 Registered Black Morgan Gelding, 14.1hh
Nodaway Tolie x Ranchboss Ariana
Boarded in NY
Rescued December 2019
Adoption Fee: Special Needs Horse

Nordic, Quite the beauty. He is one stocky built boy. Old style build Morgan. He is more beautiful in person than what his pictures show. This boy was never taught to properly lead, he will often use his brute strength to take you where he wants to go forgetting anyone is at the other end if the lead rope. It is not uncommon for him to barge down the barn hall or outside dragging you around. He would do well with a refresher of being taught to flex his neck and give to pressure. He is leary of fly spray at first but then adapts and allows it. He does have a steady limp, Equioxx helps but does not control all of his pain from the high ring bone. He enjoys grooming, and getting his handful of Senior is the highlight of his day. He will suck in his tongue and drool afterward to savor the flavor and is quite comical. He is not bad for the farrier but can be pushy during his trim. Very easy keeper.

He is also the dominant horse and will often let the others know on the other side of the fence that he won't back down if another attempts to dominate him.

Dark Shadows Mystery #

2011 Registered Black Mare, Height : TBD
MATLICK VIEW RANGER x MONACO MEXACALI ROSE
Boarded in PA
Rescued November 2019
Adoption Fee: Special Needs Horse

From previous owner .....
This mare's barn name is Mexi (as in her Mexicali from her dam’s name). Mexi was broke to drive at 2 and was used for trips to town. She was too slow as buggy horse, so they used her as a broodmare. They decided to sell her when she was open this fall even though she had been bred.

She has not been driven in six years. They don't recall ever riding her. They said Mexi had no safety issues and does not crib. She probably ties but that they would have had little reason to tie her. They said she loaded into the trailer easily.

Mexi foundered at some point, although it was a mild case. Her low fetlocks (which I had to specifically ask about as the owner thought they were mild) did not seem to bother her, but she had stifle soreness. They had a chiropractor work on the stifles a couple of times, but she was still sore.

KAT

Kat

GETTERDUN KATBIRD COMMAND

2000 Registered Bay Gelding, 14.2hh
UVM Alliance x TM Kathleen Command
Pedigree
Fostered in OH
Rescued October 2020
Adoption Fee: $700

Kat is like a sturdy time capsule - he's spent several years on pasture and he moves like a horse half his age. His hoofs and legs are phenomenal. Lots of substance to this guy! He was ridden when he was younger, but because it's been awhile, he's being started like a young horse. So far, he's polishing his sense of personal space, his patience and always showing his very best manners. He should be under saddle again by December, 2020 - probably sooner.

Kat is a friendly, agreeable sort, not at all skittish but sometimes unsure of what's being asked. He tries hard to cooperate and learn, and he rarely needs to repeat a lesson. He's easy to catch and is an easy keeper. His current setup is a stall with attached 10'x20' paddock, plus 8-12 hours of turnout daily, and he does very well on that plus a handful of grain with, if the weather is bad, a couple flakes of grass hay per day. He's a little too "round" right now.

Kat wants to bond with one person he trusts 100%. He was deeply attached to an equine friend he spent many years with, and he acts like he wants that again. Although he's shown zero aggression toward other horses, he's turned out alone so that he doesn't get separated again after deep attachment. He's been very respectful of fences.

Kat is a "talker" who rattles a gate or a door if he thinks you're ignoring him. He's getting a lot of not-so-fun stuff done right now - dental check-up, farrier work, deworming - to update his veterinary records. His vaccinations are up-to-date.

Once he wraps up his groundwork, a certified Centered Riding instructor will handle his under-saddle work, and he's expected to progress quickly.

Snoopy

Snoopy

Blossoms Wink and Nod

2003 Registered Bay Gelding, 15.3hh
BLOSSOMS SUDDEN IMPACT x BLOSSOMS AMBROSIA
Pedigree
Fostered in RI
Rehome June 2020
Adoption Fee: $300

Updated July 2020

Blossoms Wink and Nod, now called Snoopy, was acquired by Forever Morgans in fall of 2018 and adopted in December of that year by someone who wanted a horse to drive the neighborhood roads and trail ride. He is described by the adopter as "the sweetest horse" with wonderful barn manners. Snoopy was returned to the rescue in June of 2020 because he is anxious on the road and has not settled down for trail rides. He spooked and sidestepped into traffic but never bucked.

A professional trainer worked with Snoopy at his adopted home weekly for a year and a half. There is no ring there, so the focus was on trail work.Hw also spent two weeks of professional riding and driving training in February of 2020. The trainer felt that in time he would be OK for arena riding but said he is spooky and overreacts. She recommended a low-key environment and suggested that he would be a good companion horse. He ties and is well-behaved for grooming and in his stall. He loaded and unloaded from the trailer without incident when transported to the training barn. He does not crib.

Snoopy lets other horses take the lead in turnout and is good with both mares and geldings. The adopter felt Snoopy would likely be fine as an only horse. His teeth were floated in 2020, and he was up to date on vaccinations at that time. The adopter reported that Snoopy does require a good amount of food to maintain his weight. He has shoes on but could be fine barefoot if not doing roadwork. At 15.3 hands, he is able to carry a taller rider.

Dia H Valor

2000 Registered Chestnut Gelding, 14.2hh
DJB YUKON JACK x DIA H TOMBOY
Pedigree
Fostered in AZ
Rehome July 2020
Adoption Fee: $300

Valor is a sweet boy who is easy to handle once we catch him, as he’s rather cagey. He has fears from some past trauma or mishandling that makes him wary of what you're going to do to him. But once he sees you mean him no harm he settles down and he can be led, brushed and have his feet handled. He has excellent feet which rarely need trimming. He stands well for the farrier. Valor needs a very experienced rider who can take their time with him and gain his trust. We have saddled and bridled him but have not ridden him because of our ages and his skittishness. Before he came to live with us he was ridden by a trainer and seemed to do fine. He is very responsive when we work with him in the round pen. He seems to be gaited.

Rose Valley Reflection #0127429

1992 Registered Chestnut Mare, 14.1 hands
Pinehaven Chief x FrostyPine ShadyLady
Pedigree
Fostered in PA
Rescued October 2013
Adoption Fee: Special Needs Horse

Reflection is a calm, quiet mare who is easy to handle. She is a former broodmare with heavy Funquest lines, a daughter and granddaughter of the popular stallion Pinehaven Chief. She was not familiar with being lunged but tried hard to understand what was wanted; previous owners said that she is not trained to ride or drive and was only used as a broodmare. She has a bit of a swayback, so would not do well being ridden. She is funny about being caught -- she is initially hard to catch, but comes right to you if you ignore her, and once you scratch her neck she stands to put the halter on. Reflection is a sweet mare who would be happy in a quiet, peaceful pasture. She can be an alpha mare, not aggressive but clearly in charge; her foster mom says that she is a good broodmare who is used to running the herd, but does not have to be the boss. She is a very easy keeper.

Kayla

Julie's Fine Kayla 144538

1998 Registered Bay Mare, 14,2-14.3hh
Wales Farm Echo x Magenta's Portia
Pedigree
Fostered in IL
Returned Feb 2018
Adoption Fee: $300

Updated November 2020

Kayla is described by her foster home as a lovely, sweet girl with big doe eyes who loves people and being fussed over. She was adopted a number of years ago but had to be returned to Forever Morgans when her adopter could no longer care for her due to family health issues.

She had not been ridden much in the year prior to that and has been ridden only once since being returned to us, at which point she was described as nervous, although that is understandable as she was barely ridden in the last few years. In her adoptive home, she stood quietly to be tacked up and had a nice walk and trot but could be challenging to get into a canter, as can be typical with former Amish buggy horses (her previous life). The adopter took her on some trails with other horses but never solo. She tended to be anxious on the trails, but the adopter felt that she was an extremely sweet horse who would make a wonderful riding horse with some work. The foster took her to a local Amish trainer for a driving evaluation. She was fine for hooking but was then strongly focused on going forward at a swift pace and would not walk. She resisted several types of bit by tossing her head. The Amish trainer reported that her teeth were bad and floated them. He also noted that she has some wear and tear on her legs so is best suited for light use.

Kayla gets along beautifully with the mare she is turned out with and does well in a stall but prefers a run-in shed. She lives in a large pasture but is an easy keeper and might benefit from having her pasture intake limited.

Kayla behaves well for the vet and farrier. We think she would blossom in a home where someone could give her a purpose and consistently work with her.

Updated Sept 2018

She is a real joy to have around the barn. She is sweet and loving and gets along beautifully with my paint mare. I do not ride, so I can't tell you how she does with that. I love to drive and bought a cart and harness for her. I did not feel comfortable just hitching her so I took her to local Amish trainer to see how she would do. Good idea, she hitched just fine but has a lot of git up and go, would not walk. We had her teeth worked on but she still fought the bit(we tried 3 different kinds) It was decided that in order to try and work this out, which would take quite a while, I would just bring her home. She would do well with an experienced person, but as of know, not a real pleasure to drive for a beginner or older person who wants to go slow. I still love her and she has a home here unless she gets adopted.

Kayla stands around 14.2 or 14.3. She is a lovely, sweet girl with beautiful big doe eyes! Loves people and loves to be fussed over. Great for vet and farrier. Loads excellent. Will stand quietly for tacking. However, she has not been ridden much over the past year or so. Walk, trot is great but it is hard to get her to canter sometimes. Has only been trail ridden with other horses and is a bit clueless and can get a bit antsy on the trails. Before we had her she had been a buggy horse. I think with a little work she would make a wonderful riding horse. She has an extremely sweet personality. She does well in a stall but prefers the run-in shed.

Phoenix

Phoenix

Penncrest Phoenix Rising #145816

1998 Registered Bay Gelding, 14.2hh
Nobility X Atavista Alouette
Pedigree
Fostered in FL
Rescued January 2017
Adoption Fee: $600

Updated June 29, 2020

Phoenix loves people and is looking for one to call his own. He would be an eye-pleasing pasture ornament and an ideal pet for someone who enjoys spending time bonding with their horse through grooming and groundwork.

He is safe for anyone to handle on the ground and also enjoys giving leadline rides to small children but is not a fan of heavier riders. One of his hips appears to be out of alignment and likely causes discomfort in his pelvis area when he asked to carry the weight of an average adult. He prefers to walk and trot only. Phoenix gets very attached to people and is good natured but has opinions about what he will and will not tolerate. One thing he will not tolerate is whips. He will lunge without a whip but refuses to cooperate if the handler carries a whip. He also does not like to leave the barn but is cooperative once he is out of the barn area and on the road.

He is easy to catch; ties well; stands for grooming, tacking up, bathing, and picking his feet up; and does everything he should do on the ground. He does not show any inclination to bite or kick. He has become very attached to the person who works with him on groundwork, such as going over cavaletti to strengthen his hind end.

A former Amish buggy horse, he has been harnessed several times at his foster home with no issues but has not been driven there.

He does well living with other geldings in a run-in shed and was also fine in a stall, although he is a chronic cribber so does better outside. He sucks wind but does not chew wood. If given the opportunity, he likes to be the herd boss but will back down. It is unknown whether he gets along with mares as we have not turned him out with them. His foster feels that he would likely tolerate being an only horse as long as he gets enough human attention. He is not a difficult keeper and maintains his weight well on a quality grain with a timothy/alfalfa/coastal grass mix. He did have some trouble sweating last summer in Florida's heat and humidity and might do better in a cooler climate. His teeth were checked in January 2020 and were in good condition, and his foster said he has good feet.

While he has not traveled since arriving in foster care, the shipper who delivered him said he rode fine in the trailer.

His foster feels he would be a perfect companion for someone who enjoys having a horse to groom and spend time with but not ride. It is possible that he might do well as a trail horse for a lightweight rider who does not want to canter.

Holly

WHETSTONE HOLLY

1997 Registered Chestnut Morgan Mare, 14.2hh
Charlestown Scotland x Charlestown Light My Fire
Pedigree
Fostered in MD
Rescued November 2018
Adoption Fee: $300

Holly came to Forever Morgans after her elderly owner's health issues prevented her from keeping Holly any longer. Holly was with that owner since the age of 2 and had been ridden lightly for a short time but was never trained to drive. She has not been ridden since she was 3 years old and unseated her owner. Her only job since then was to be a companion to an older gelding in a large pasture in northern Vermont. Though not affectionate, she has adjusted well to being at her foster home and now enjoys being groomed, getting treats, and greeting her foster person at the fence. She has a mild personality and has gotten along very well with the foster's other two horses from the start. She tolerates the resident border collie.

The foster home reported that a vet exam with bloodwork in spring 2020 indicated Holly is very healthy and doesn't seem to have arthritis. Her teeth were brought up to date on care at that time. The foster has not seen Holly crib, kick, bite, or display any other vices. She seems to have good feet, although she has needed sedation for farrier visits.

Holly does well with free access to go in and out of a stall as she pleases and prefers to hang out under an overhang when she's near the barn. She is only locked in the stall to eat meals and is on pasture the rest of the time. She loves her food and answers to the foster's whistling.

The foster has not tried to ride her. The foster did try to blanket her but said Holly was too skittish. Though not handled much before coming to Forever Morgans, she now crossties and stands quietly while being groomed and leads without issues. She has only been trailered twice in her life, once when she was 2 years old and the second time upon intake by Forever Morgans. It took a good amount of time to load her and she had to be sedated during the trip, so she will need further work in that area and a long-distance adoption would not be advised.

Holly could benefit from training in a home with an experienced handler who can consistently work with her.

1989 Chestnut Morgan Mare, height : TBD
Windhoverenchantmint x MR. R's Miss America
Pedigree
Fostered in VA
Rescued April 2018
Adoption Fee: Special Needs Horse

They called her Amy. The owner's wife described Amy as amazing. They would have kept her to live out her life on pasture but are very limited on space and did not have room for both Amy and another horse. Amy still drives wonderfully, even for their 10-year-old child. She is safe for anybody to ride and will adjust her level of energy to suit the rider. The 16-year-old gets on her and "rides hard," and Amy appears to love it; yet when the 6-year-old rides, Amy becomes a complete babysitter. In general, she has more fire riding than driving. She ties and is thoroughly safe on the ground. Even their family's youngest, not quite 2 years old, was in the stall trying to brush her legs to prepare her to leave. It was hard for the entire family to get rid of their "darling Amy" but especially terrible for the kids. They were overjoyed to hear that people might be working to find Amy a good home.

They estimated Amy to be about 15 hands. They said they would call her sound, although she has recently had some trouble with her back fetlocks giving while driving downhill on pavement but not to the point of falling. They also noticed this when she did a 180-degree turn too fast when riding. They described her feet as fine with no laminitis issues. Although her teeth have not been done in recent years, they have not had a problem with her teeth and did not need to give her special feed.

Although she can be bossy, she is fine with other horses.

Jasmine Adoption Pending!

2010, Bay, Said to be Morgan, 14.2hh
Fostered in SC
Rehomed December 2020
Adoption Fee: $300

Jasmine is a beautiful bay mare with lots of personality. She greets you with a friendly nicker every time she sees you (and sometimes if she just hears you). She would love to find a younger rider with whom she can bond as Jasmine is a smaller horse. We are a foster family with lots of kids in and out of the house and she has been very loving with all of them. She is great with dogs, cats, and chickens too.

Jasmine is dominant in nature but gets along well with geldings and mares that tend to be lower on the hierarchy. Once a person gains her respect, she is very willing to work. She does have a stiff stifle so she will need to be ridden by a younger or smaller person. She also has developed a cresty neck which is believed to be due to insulin resistance. For her health, she needs to be kept active, given "Remission" (obtained at Tractor Supply), and kept on an appropriate diet. (She gains weight easily.) However, if you meet these needs, she will be a wonderful addition to anyone's barn. She has great feet and does not mind having them trimmed by the farrier. She also behaves for the veterinarian. She goes willingly into a trailer, cross-ties, and obeys cues when being lunged.

SAPPHIRE IN GOLD #0175051 Adoption Pending!

2006 Registered Palomino Mare, 14.3 hh
Lah Ben x Siskowit Golden Lady
Pedigree
Fostered in MN
Rescued November 2020
Adoption Fee: $600

Sapphire In Gold was saved from the kill lot in Wisconsin and brought to my place on 11/21. When she got here she was sick so we just let her settle in to her "private suite" (we are lucky enough to have 1 stall on the other side of the barn away from all the others with dutch doors that lead out to a 3-sided shelter and a small paddock. So it is perfect for quarantine). kept her comfy and let her settle in and rest. After about 3 weeks she was totally better.

We actually do not know anything about her history. She was never transferred after her breeders. We don't know her training level or if she has ever been ridden. She is a little leary of being haltered. I found the best way for her is to treat, put the lead rope around her neck, halter, and treat again. If you try to halter first she's gone! You can tell she has some trust issues, but wants to trust. She is getting better and better everyday. She now comes up to me for scratches.

The biggest issue is it is like she was never properly trained to respect a person's space in-hand. When you're leading her she just goes where she wants and doesn't want to stand still. She is improving with a fim hand, but needs someone who can work with her consistently. She had her hooves trimmed and she picked her leg up right away so she knew what to do. But she did not want to stand still the whole time. It was a workout for both the farrier and me. I don't think she was being mean or purposely bad. I think it is anxiety.

Otherwise, she is an extremely beautiful, sweet girl - we love her and would be so happy to see her go to a loving home. She deserves a home with someone who has time and patience to earn her trust. We were thinking about adopting her, but my husband was hospitalized on 12/21 with a spine infection from a back surgery he had in September. He is home now, but will be on IV antibiotics for months and it will be a long recovery. This beautiful, special girl needs a home where she can get more attention than I can give her more love.

Rena's barn name was Robin!! Robin started life an Amish buggy horse and was a broodmare for a short time but is now ready to learn a new job as a saddle horse. She came to Forever Morgans at only 9 years old after her former owner decided he had too many horses with winter coming and she was not traffic safe. While he felt Robin has potential for an experienced driver who wants to do competitive or leisure driving rather than road driving, our veterinarian discovered that she is 90% blind in her right eye and would be better suited for riding. The eye does not seem to bother her, and our veterinarian feels that it can remain intact.

Her driving training gives her a head start toward saddle work, although she has not been driven in a few years so might need a refresher course of groundwork. The previous owner rode her bareback once in a bridle at the walk only, and she did well. He noted that she can be high strung and on the strong side both in the bridle and on the ground so requires an experienced, understanding horseperson. In his words, as long as you can keep her calm and she trusts you, she is good. The blindness in one eye likely contributed to her uneasiness in traffic.

Stetson, kind, loving and gentle. He was leary of being groomed when he first arrived, until he realized it was pleasant and the brush wasn't going to hurt him. He is very easy to lead, walks quiet and gentle. Easy to worm, and trim. Back ankles are enlarged, x-rays show fractured sesamoids in both hinds. He is stalled during the day to allow for some healing and turned out late afternoon/night. This helps in fly season also so he is not constantly stomping his feet. He doesn't mind being sprayed with fly spray. He will sway his head from side to side in his stall when the weather is bad and he missed his turnout as he enjoys being out. Would do great in a pasture situation, and/or a place where there is a small paddock with a run in adjacent to a turnout field where he can be in a smaller turnout area complete with shelter to rest when needed. When you are filling up his water bucket in his stall he sniffs you and will slurp your face or arm, (giving kisses). A kind and gentle natured boy.
