RH&MJ Aprils Bob-a-Rebob #176744

2006 Registered Chestnut Gelding, 15.1hh
OHF Creative Endeavour x Esther's Pretty April
Pedigree
Fostered in VA
Rescued December 2016
Adoption Fee: $800

RH&MJ Aprils Bob-a-Rebob, aka Bobby, will knock your socks off! He is a 10-year-old, 15.1hh, former Amish driver - not broke to ride, but that can be remedied. Great ground manners, bathes, ties, clips, lunges, loads and trailers well. His former owner said he is sensitive to 'white things' since he had a buggy accident. The owner also said Bobby was off in the hind end after the accident. He has a swollen left front fetlock. It doesn't seem to bother him much, but he is off a little at the trot. Bobby has a lot of personality and presence and that goofy, Morgany sense of humor - he is just a doll! If you are interested in fostering, or better yet, adopting Bobby, you need to act fast!

Recent Rescues, in quarantine


These horses are currently boarded at a quarantine (QT) facility; due to the nature of QT, they cannot be handled much. Information is still limited to what we know but will be updated as soon as it is available.
 

Boarded

Horses in the listed section below are currently boarded. The horses have completed quarantine and are ready to move to a foster or adoptive home. The provider gives excellent care, but due to the number of horses at the facility the horses cannot receive much individual attention and are not able to be ridden. Forever Morgans has to pay standard rates for their board and care. Please consider adopting or fostering one of these horses.

Currently in Foster Homes

These horses have completed quarantine and are now in foster homes. Fosters treat the horse like it is one of their one; they help to evaluate and work with the horse to help it find a forever home. Some fosters can provide formal training, others simply offer a safe place for the horse to regain its health and trust. Fosters provide regular updates and photos of the horses. If you are interested in adopting one of these horses, contact forevermorgans@hotmail.com to be put in touch with the foster home for more information.

Tes Changing Times # 140209

1996 Registered Bay Gelding, 15 Hands
Troutbtook Top Brass x HVK Dark Rum
Pedigree
Fostered in PA
Intake July 2017
Adoption Fee: $600

He rides wonderfully, He has enough spirit for a seasoned rider to enjoy riding but is gentle enough that children can ride him as well.

He stands slightly less than 15 hands.

His ground manners are good and he gets along well with other horses. As a younger horse he had a reputation for being a little feisty in the stall. He would reach across barriers and harass other horses etc. He also was adept at untying other horses tie ropes. Not usually his own but any others that he could reach. He didn't do this type of thing nearly as much after he got bit pretty badly by another horse. He has a scar on the left side of his neck from this bite. Overall I would consider his manner very calm. He has enough personality to be fun but is easy enough that even an inexperienced handler could enjoy him.

Everything that I listed above pretty much applies to his driving. Easy to handle but with enough spirit to keep it fun.

This is overall the best horse I have ever owned. It is extremely hard for us to see him go. If I had the resources to keep him as a pet horse I would not even consider letting him go.

STORM

2016 Bay Filly, height TBD
Fostered in NY
Rescued August 2016
Adoption Fee: $250

Storm and her mother Mina, were part of the feral Easter Twilight herd and on August 15, they were in the first batch of the Morgan Herd at Risk to be rescued. DNA has been none and there was no match for this pair. As more members of the herd are identified, it is possible that further identification may be possible.

The stress of the rescue was too much for Mina and on August 15, she delivered Storm in a crowded pen the day after the herd was rounded up. Unfortunately, within minutes of her arrival, Storm's left hind leg was stepped on by one of the horses in that small pen.

Forever Morgans Rescue members arrived the next day. They purchased Mina and Storm and the pair were transported to a nearby farm, where Storm could begin to get the medical attention she needed. The initial exam of Storm's leg did not indicate a fracture, but there was extensive damage. After the initial inflammation started to recede, Storm was examined again, and this time digital x-rays and ultrasound indicated that there was a fracture, as well as a partially torn ligament. Surgery was recommend to repair the damage, but this required fund-raising.

During this time, it was discovered that Storm was developing an umbilical hernia that needed to be addressed. By the time Storm was ready for surgery on her leg, the pre-surgical exam showed that the fracture had healed and healed correctly. However, Storm's fetlocks were weak and glue-on extended shoes were recommended to provide support.

Storm's hernia was repaired and surgery was successful. She developed an infection, but it cleared up after treatment with antibiotics. She was a champ at taking her medications, and even willingly opened her mouth for the syringe. It helped that the meds were peppermint flavored!

By the end of November, Storm was completely healed and recovered. She and Mina have a brand new paddock at their wonderful foster home and are able to go outside and enjoy the weather. Storm got to experience her first snowfall in the second week of December and she decided that snow is pretty cool stuff!

WCG'S DOLLAR #157121

2002 Registered Chestnut Gelding, 14.2hh
WCG'S LITTLE CABALLO x WCG'S LITTLE SUE
Pedigree
Fostered in NE
Rescued November 2016
Adoption Fee: $600

WCG's Dollar is a pretty red chestnut gelding with a striking blaze and a kind face. He was in rough shape when he was taken in - poor guy - but he's looking much better now. He was under the care of a vet to help treat a hoof abscess and try to resolve any other physical issues he may have. According to his previous owner, Dollar lived in pasture with a herd of other Morgans. He has good ground manners, but can be a little hard to catch in the pasture, unless he is consistently handled. He is more on the laid-back side than the hot side. Through no fault of his own, he was not broke to ride or drive and has been a pasture pet. At only 15, he is still a young guy and it is certainly not too late for him to go to school and learn some new skills. It would be a blessing for Dollar if someone took him in and showed him how good life can be, with regular grooming, some special treats and personal attention. Who will step up to be Dollar's angel?

1998 Registered Chestnut Gelding, 14.3hh
CRISPIN OF QUIETUDE x MEADOW OF QUIETUDE
Pedigree
Fostered in NC
Rescued November 2016
Adoption Fee: $300

Though we've ridden him some, he still has his demons and becomes anxious. He's good on the ground, a lovely uncle for any equine needing comfort or manners and a simple, friendly soul. His face is scarred, so no telling what he's gone through. We do know that his education was rushed, his papers were eventually lost and that he passed through multiple hands.

Ideally he would go to a place where he can continue help raising colts or a quiet pasture to retire on.

Vicky is a sweet, pretty, obedient mare who has thrived in foster care. She has been ridden and is green but willing and line driven with no issues but not hooked because the foster does not have the equipment. She is said to be a reliable driving horse by the breeder. She has had her feet tended to, her teeth floated, massages and lots of food. She is thriving and would make someone a nice riding and driving mare.

Missy is a very sweet, kind mare who came to foster care thin and depressed with an evident hip injury. She is thriving in foster care with lots of food, turnout, hoof care, massages and teeth floating. She is putting on weight and her hip asymmetry is beginning to change. The masseur has recommended line driving her in straight lines to further help her injury. She is very grateful for any kindness. Pretty and royally bred. She would be an easy companion horse and could well be an equine therapy horse.

ULTRAS SPARTICUS #166229

2004 Registered Brown Gelding , height 15+ hh
ULTRAS SPECIAL AGENT x SPRINGMILL ONE MORE TIME
Pedigree
Fostsered in CO
Rescued November 2016
Adoption Fee: Special Needs Horse

Ultras Sparticus, aka Sparky, has been designated as a Special Needs horse due to suspensory ligament damage in his back legs.

According to the vet, it is possible that with time and extensive rehab, he may improve well enough for light work, or at least a good quality of life as a pasture pet, but only time and rehab will tell. In terms of rehab, the vet would recommend wrapping the hind limbs with standing wraps and poulticing every day or every other day to help reduce inflammation. She also recommends short, controlled hand-walking so the ligaments get used but not damaged, and possibly hind shoes for support. More advanced options would be laser or acupuncture therapy. The vet said that on a scale of 1-10 for pain, he is a 3 or 4. She recommends pain medication (Equicox) to keep Sparky comfortable and he could stay on those as long as needed.

Sparky's caretaker would need to be very dedicated. As far as trailering to a new home, his legs would need to be wrapped and if it were a long trip he would need a layover at night.

Sparky is a nice horse who was well-trained for driving. He is a former Amish driving horse who 'couldn't do the 20 miles anymore.' One of his former owners who had Sparky when he was about 4 years old said that he had a lot of common sense but was a little on the hot side at that point in his life. The owner also said that he heard Sparky had gotten into a buggy accident when he was around 5 or 6 years of age. It put a scare into him but he apparently got over it, because he continued to be used as a buggy horse. Sparky is a very nice horse with a beautiful face and a sweet expression. It would be wonderful if a kind adopter would step up and give this pretty boy a chance at a new life!

Bewitched

Bewitched

FMRescue Bewitched

Grade mare, 14.2hh
Fostered in KY
Rescued October 2015
Adoption Fee: $300

Bewitched is a lovely, typey (unpapered) mare who would be suitable for an experienced horse owner or an intermediate owner with a trainer. She would benefit greatly from some professional training in order to fulfill her true potential. She appears to have had some saddle training but is far from finished. She would also benefit from a groundwork refresher. Bee is very sweet and is an easy keeper. She is great in a herd and is about in the middle. She loves getting scratches and hugs, and will lay her head on your shoulder - she's a typical Morgan in that regard. She has a lovely head carriage, halters easily and has beautiful motion, with a lovely stride and trot. Bee takes no notice of dogs and cats in the pasture with her, and takes them in stride. She has had a professional evaluation and here are the results: Bee seems to have some fear issues, which may indicate a lack of basic groundwork training. She tends to crowd and circle you and sometimes rushes forward. She is skittish when having her back feet trimmed, so needs a patient, experienced person for that. She often paws the ground, especially when eating. She is not very quiet on the cross ties and will try to turn. She is better single-tied, but still does not stand very patiently. She seems somewhat anxious inside the barn and does not like being in a stall. She loads reasonably well into the trailer; however, she hauled nervously, and was sweating when unloaded. She knows how to lunge reasonably well. Simple ground work, e.g., bending, backing, etc., seems to help her learn how to lead better. When preparing for saddle work, she tacked up nervously but did OK. She was lunged carrying a lightweight western saddle, and reared up. Overall, she was forward, but was not wild. She stood well and allowed a rider to mount. There were no issues while she was led carrying a rider during a short walk. She is likely broke to ride, but would need further evaluation under saddle.

Penncrest Phoenix Rising #145816

1998 Registered Bay Gelding, height TBD
Nobility X Atavista Alouette
Pedigree
Fostered in FL
Rescued January 2017
Adoption Fee: $700

Penncrest Phoenix Rising's former owner had this nice gelding since Phoenix was 2 years old. The owner really did not want to part with him but could no longer keep him. The owner was previously unfamiliar with Forever Morgans, but was very happy to hear that this is where Phoenix landed. He said that Phoenix is a sweet horse with no health issues. He was used primarily as a buggy horse, but his owner did ride him some, mainly on trail rides. He stopped riding him a few years ago because he acted like he was getting a little stiff, maybe due to age. The owner took Phoenix on a 3-day ride when Phoenix was 8. He was pretty hot on day 1, but settled down nicely on the 2nd and 3rd days. Due to being a buggy horse, Phoenix always had shoes on. He was both stalled and turned out to pasture and got along well with the other horses. At the end of his time with his owner, he had become boss man in the herd. He was wormed on a regular basis, but did not get immunizations, so those would need to be started from scratch. He does crib, but only when he is stalled. The owner tried a cribbing collar but it didn't stop Phoenix from hooking his top teeth on a rail and sucking air. He was a good driving horse but could be a little hot at times, so is not recommended for a novice driver or rider. He does listen well. Phoenix seems to be a special boy who could be that all-around horse for some lucky person.

He rides well however he is gate sour or barn sour. when you discipline him for this he bucks and kicks out at your leg. This is a behavior he has gotten away with. Working on this. He does lunge but hates it. He will try and charge you or kick you if you aren't on your game in the round pen. If we have him long enough we will fix theses things. He will kick at another horse if the horse gets too close to him while riding. He's good in the stall and well mannered with his feet, for Farrier, bathes , rinsing brushing etc . He will let you clip him with the electric clippers. He crossties but I wouldn't leave him alone on the cross ties. He's a friendly horse . He should go to a experienced Horseman and this person needs to be a Int. Rider. Not a kids horse. Not yet.

HVK My Flaire Lady #0131229

1993 Registered Bay Mare, 15-15.1hh
Noble Flaire x HVK Bold Lady
Pedigree
Fostered in VT
Rescued September 2016
Adoption Fee: $700

"Flaire" or "Flaire Lady" was an English pleasure horse for the majority of her life, bringing home the ribbons at A-shows out West, including OKC. She has had 5 foals to date and is not recommended for breeding at this time. She was retired from the show ring and lessons in 2008 and ended up at an Amish farm in 2015. When she wouldn’t take, the Amish gentleman called us as we have a working relationship with him.

She is sound. She loves treats. Once she is back up to weight, she's said to be an easy keeper. Her ground manners are good, she listened even as she wanted grass. She's at ease in QT, watching what goes on and assessing. No health issues, no vices.

Her past owners claim that she is hot and spicy under saddle, then again she was in "show horse mode". She had a job to do, she was not a pet by any means. Isn't it time that someone loves her for her? Gives her treats, takes her for hand grazing walks? Shows her the beauty of a trail ride perhaps? She may be 23 but she has a stunning sparkle in her eye. Who will show her a life outside of the show ring?

Rescued November 2016
Adoption Fee: $600

We are stepped up for this lovely Tedwin Topic/Fiddler's Trustee granddaughter whose owner has found themselves in a situation where they must find her a new home. She can be lightly ridden and drives. Here's what we have from someone who rides her: "I keep the rides to about 1/2 hour. She revs up so just about trying to keep her from overdoing it. She requires an experienced and patient rider. If she is harshly ridden makes it worse. She is well behaved on the ground, with a sweet temperament and could potentially be around beginners for that."

Morgan Hill Southern Belle #0152458

1998 Registered Chestnut Mare, 15hh
Carlyle Cartier x Green Mist Firebelle
Fostered in KY
Rescued March 2015
Adoption Fee: $700

Belle is a sweet mare with Morgan spunk. She rides and drives, very forward so she would be best suited for an experienced, calm, kind person. She took some time to trust us and her new environment but once she settled she is fine. She does need a large area attached to a stall so she can move around more. If she is put in a stall, her hind legs bother her and become stiff. According to my vet and chiropractor, she has a mild case of Shrivers, so pasture with a stall attached is perfect for her. She does love her stall and large paddock as she move freely between the two. I have not had an issues of soundness with her kept in this set up. However she still is thrush, though we have made lots of progress. Occasionally she maybe be tender on her feet if we have too much rain. Farrier said it takes a long time for new frogs to grow as hers were eaten away severely. She needs her own human and will bond. I believe she is best suited for a smaller framed adult who is comfortable with a forward energetic mare. We have not cantered her yet, I wanted to get her in better shape, I plan on doing that this summer. She is not spooky. I have driven her and I have an adult student who rides her once a week. She is a little flirt, whinnies at all horses who walk by her and is very Mare-ish around new horses and when she is in heat. She squeals and strikes out with her front feet. This is her worse behavior which is not really bad. I have seen worse mares.

Music Rose

Music Regency Rose

1996 Canadian Registered Black mare Height : TBD
Windhover Regency x Shalom Gypsy Rose
Fostered in IL
Rescued October 2016
Adoption Fee: $600

Who would love to be a benefactor and try to help a beautiful, black Morgan mare? Music Regency Rose is a well-bred mare who originally came from our Canadian neighbors. She was used as a broodmare for a while and produced three foals. We believe that she may be broke to ride but she hasn't been evaluated for riding. When Rose came under our care, her feet were trimmed and she was well-behaved for the farrier. Under most circumstances, she is a well-behaved mare; however, she can be quite reactive under certain circumstances. For example, during a November vet exam, her handler was holding her by the lead rope in her stall and when a second person went into her stall, Rose lunged and pinned the second person against the wall. When trying to give her shots, she kicks and strikes. Using a sedative does not quiet Rose as much as would be expected; she can still be difficult to handle. Rose will be adopted out only to a suitably experienced person and a liability rider will be required. A potential adopter must realize the risk involved in adopting Rose. She is only 21 and, with the right adopter, she has many years left to brighten up their pasture.

NONESUCH SUDDENLY #0167598

2004 Registered Bay Mare, Height : 14.2hh
UVM Addison x Nonesuch Secret Storm
Pedigree
Fostered in NC
Rescued July 2016
Adoption Fee: Special Needs Horse

Nonesuch Suddenly has an undiagnosed hind limb injury. She has had a chiropractic treatment and is improved but needs further diagnostics to determine the exact issue and if it's resolvable. She showed some response to fetlock flexion so diagnostic nerve blocks are recommended to differentiate a lower versus upper limb issue.

At this point, further diagnostics are needed to determine if Nonesuch will be rideable or pasture pet. Should not be ridden until a diagnosis is made.

Special Needs Horse
Adoption fee will be waived on the condition that the contract between the adopter and FM is amended to include specific agreements about future treatment and training.

1992 Registered Chestnut Mare, 14.1 hands
Pinehaven Chief x FrostyPine ShadyLady
Pedigree
Fostered in OK
Rescued October 2013
Adoption Fee: $300

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.

CHAD'S BLACK JACK # 166104

2004 Registered Bay Gelding Height :14.3hh
Rushbruk Ezekial x Jo's Mariah
Fostered in WI
Rescued October 2016
Adoption Fee: $700

A personable and inquisitive boy, Blackjack enjoys being with people. He follows his foster mom around the pasture. Blackjack came to Forever Morgans along with his mother (Jo's Mariah) and sister (Richmond's Fancy Abbey) when their owners could no longer care for them due to family health issues. At the time, Blackjack was not trained to ride or drive, but we were told he had done extensive ground work.

His foster is now riding him at the walk and trot in a snaffle bridle but has not yet cantered him. He's doing very well under saddle but at this time will need an experienced rider who can work with him consistently simply because he's so green and needs to build confidence under saddle. He wears a bitting harness (surcingle and crupper) and would likely make a nice driving horse but has not been driven only because his foster does not have the equipment or experience to do so. A quick learner, Blackjack has a laidback personality and does not tend to spook. He responds well to "whoa." He is strong on the ground and can be pushy with his head but was good about allowing his foster mom to apply eye ointment without an assistant when he had allergy issues last fall. He leads well and lunges. Although picking up his feet isn't his favorite thing, he stands sufficiently for the farrier. He ties and crossties for grooming, sponging, vacuuming, and clipping.

When he arrived at his foster home in October 2016, he would weave whenever another horse wasn't in the stall next to him or when he was stressed. He no longer weaves at his foster home, although it is possible he might pick up the habit again in a new environment if stressed. He would not do well as an only horse and will require at least one other equine companion. He leaves the other horses to work in an arena quite a distance from the barn without protesting.

The dentist veterinarian who floated Blackjack's teeth in March said he has a very nice mouth. He does not crib. According to the veterinary records we were able to obtain, Blackjack seems to have been kept up to date on vaccinations and worming much of his life. He is doing well barefoot. The farrier said that though Blackjack's feet are somewhat flat, they don’t need shoes unless he is ridden on rocky trails.

He appears to be a good mover with a nice canter, although his foster feels he might not be happy with speed work like jumping or gymkhana as he prefers a slower pace. He has been turned out with the foster's mare and gelding and does well with both, generally being the submissive one. Overall, this is a sweet, willing gelding with Morgan personality who is easy to work around.

Fostered in IL
Rescued October 2016
Adoption Fee: $600

Jo's Mariah is a pretty red chestnut Morgan mare who has had 5 foals over a ten-year period. She is also broke to ride; however, she would need a refresher should anyone want to ride her. That said, at her age she might enjoy living a life of luxury in well-earned retirement. Mariah, her daughter Abbey and her son Black Jack were owner surrenders. They were taken in by Forever Morgans because their owner could no longer care for the horses due to serious health issues. Perhaps some kind adopter would love to have a pretty chestnut mare who could be ridden around the pasture now and then. That would give Mariah something fun to do and would also let her know that someone still loves and cares about her.

Pedigree
Fostered in NE
Rescued March 2016
Adoption Fee: Special Needs Horse

From the foster home : Larue has had 3 busy months since he arrived at our barn. Most important is his opinion, was making friends with the other horses and getting used to being on full turn out. He did the usual running and bucking, but he showed good judgment and good manners with the other horses. It was a smooth transition for everyone. Larue was very deconditioned and also had an unusual looking left shoulder/front leg. His left foreleg was weak and it caused an obvious irregularity in his gait. His defect was never painful but all of the turnout must have been exhausting for him, he took a lot of naps. But, the sunshine and exercise have made him a much stronger and happier horse.

Larue is smart, likes attention and tries to please you. He learns quickly. He leads very well, ties, cross ties, is excellent for grooming and bathing, He also loads and trailers very easily and knows how to lunge.

We also made a trip to the vet clinic to get his shoulder evaluated. It appears that the abnormality was a result of a grain based diet and a calcium-phosphorous imbalance. The abnormality in his shoulder affects the strength of the bone as well as the range of motion and flight path of his left front leg. The rhythm of his gait is irregular at the walk but he looks fine at the trot and canter. The vet feels that he will not be sound for riding due to the condition of his shoulder. He is now being offered as a special needs horse.

That being said, Larue is a very beautiful, intelligent young horse. He is a pleasure groom, he loves to do groundwork and I am sure he would easily learn to do some tricks, too. He has a lot to offer in terms of companionship and friendship. He is a great stress reliever who always puts a smile on your face.

MLF Aire Bourne #0131720

1994 Registered Bay Mare, 15.2hh
Aristocratic Aire x LCS Inspirations
Pedigree
Fostered OH
Rescued October 2015
Adoption Fee: $700

An Aristocratic Aire daughter out of a Tedwin Topic daughter, she was a show horse in her youth, and appears to have been trained to ride and drive. Her life appears to have been predominantly as a brood mare. I have been on her back but she is very rusty. I am sure it has been quite some time since she had any under saddle work so I am trying to get her legged up. She was good for the farrier. She leads well but can be a bit strong. She gets along well with other horses but can be a bit shy. She can be a little funny about her head but I think that is from some rough handling in her past. Nothing a little time can’t fix. Her coat is gorgeous!

CAPTIAN'S DESIGN #183416 Adoption Pending

2010 Registered Chestnut Gelding, 15.3hh
SHARP DRESSED GENTLEMAN x PARTY SURPRISE
Fostered in CO
Rescued October 2016
Adoption Fee: $800

Design is an elegant and flashy Morgan gelding who is mature for being only 6 years old. He is blind in his right eye due to an old injury. His eye has been evaluated by a vet who said Design does not appear to be in pain. The vet does not recommend removal of the eye unless it causes him problems later in life. Design is very attached to Music Regency Rose (Rosie) and becomes agitated when she leaves her stall. He is young and impaired and yet he stood calmly for the farrier, even picking up his feet in anticipation of being asked. When the farrier was finished on the left side, he walked in front of Design, petting his nose, then down his neck, shoulder and finally down his right leg. Design appreciated that courtesy by the farrier, as he stood patiently and picked up his right front hoof when asked.

We were told that Design drives, but there was no one at the quarantine facility who could confirm that for us. The note that came with him states, "Hot the first mile, then holds hard after that, been to town". A riding evaluation has been completed and photos and video from that evaluation are available.

Comments from Design's riding evaluation:
Design was a very willing horse and easy to work with in the round pen. With the handler in the middle of the pen, he lunged with ease when his good eye was to the inside. He was reluctant to lunge in the reverse direction, when he could not see his person guiding him.

As the lead rope was raised up next to his cheek (on the side of his good eye), he quietly parked out and looked very handsome and proud to pose. He obviously knew what to do!

Cinching the saddle was no problem. Design seemed to be a little uncertain about the saddle, but carried it without protesting. He didn’t appear to be familiar with a mounting block. He stepped away the first few times and then stood quietly.

When the handler put weight in the stirrup, Design moved as if to say, 'What the heck was that?' When the handler tried to lie across his back and add a little weight to the saddle, Design wanted to jump forward, and then he looked back, a little startled.

It appears that, at some point in his past, Design has had training in ground work, lunging, parking out, being saddled, and probably being led around under saddle in a round pen.

Comments from Design's quarantine barn owner:
When Design arrived, he was very fearful, and he panicked because he was the last to unload and could no longer see the other horses. He actually slammed into one of the partitions and broke the hinges. As time progressed and he started settling in, he became a much calmer boy as he learned the routine and became familiar with his environment. Design does holler and paw for his food and wants to be fed first. He gets upset if his next door buddy leaves the stall. It appears that he becomes reliant on a buddy for security. Perhaps this behavior is connected with Design learning to adjust to having only one eye. Learning to trust in his handler may make a big difference in helping him learn to adapt. He appears to be a very willing horse.

Bottom line, this young, handsome gentleman needs an equine companion to show him the ropes and be his friend wherever he lands. He also needs a kind and gentle adopter who will be his friend forever. He gives every evidence that he will repay that in spades. Might that kind adopter be you? If so, email us at ForeverMorgans@hotmail.com.

KTM Lady Victoria #0148436 Adoption Pending

1999 Registered Chestnut Mare, 14.2 hh
Dia H Dandy Walker x KTM Lady Hawk
Pedigree
Fostered in WA
Rescued November 2015
Adoption Fee: $700

This beautiful mare was used as a broodmare. She is gaited as well as all of her offspring. She appears to be in decent body condition.

From her foster: Victoria came to me in December. The first thing I noticed was that she was about 200 pounds underweight, the second thing I noticed was her huge, beautiful eyes. I was taken by her curious, cheerful expression despite her condition. She thought of nothing besides eating and completely ignored her barn mate at first.

I had my vet check her and she seems healthy. There is a large swelling on her neck which we surmise is an injury from a stallion bite. It is not an abscess and doesn't seem to bother her at all.

Victoria has gained all of her weight back. She has had several ground work sessions and she totally rocked them! Victoria learns a lesson quickly and doesn't forget it. She is very respectful of her human and willing to do what is asked. She has never offered to bite or kick. She is cute as a button and smart as a whip! Little seems to bother her and I think she will make a great trail horse for someone.

Victoria was very submissive to my older mare when she arrived, but after gaining weight and confidence she has become quite the alpha mare. She and my other mare do a lot of squealing and kicking at dinner time. They do get along fine out in the pasture together, but Victoria would probably do best in a home where she is not in close confinement with another mare.

It makes me very happy watching Victoria gallop around the pasture and kick up her heels in pure joy. My other mare taught her to come galloping in when called...they are both very cute!

Pedigree
Fostered in UT
Rescued November 2015
Adoption Fee: $600

Mika has put on weight, she has been learning to lounge, I have found she seems to work best in a rope halter, she can be bit pushy. She loves to be brushed and also likes apples a lot. Will not even look at a carrot or any other treat. I have put a English saddle on her and cinched it up and she did not seem to mind it much. She lets me pick her feet and still needs to have them trimmed. She is still a little scared of people, so I have waited to have anyone come out to do them. I had our vet out to pull blood and check for any more worms, so she will have a blood panel to go off of. I do believe she needs to have her teeth done, but She would have to be sedated for that to even check for sure, so I have not even tired to put a bit on her. She is fine in the stall for the night, but is ready to get out in the morning, I think she would prefer to be out all the time, but we have a large herd of elk that seem to come through and she gets spooked by them, so I feel better knowing she's contained at night. She is a big girl and is very interested in what goes on around her. She needs further training, I would guess, but she may have been rode, it is hard to say, I only have a small pasture, so I will not be the person to find this out. She is not a lead mare, in fact, she needs to be a bit more so with the horse she is pastured with.

LS Cindy's Revenge #138334 Adoption Pending

1995 Registered Bay Gelding, 15-15.1hh
BRASS COMMANDER x L S MISS PINE
Fostered in NC
Rescued October 2016
Adoption Fee: $700

Elegant and classy are two words that come to mind when first seeing LS Cindy's Revenge. He is a proud looking Morgan! Revenge was owned by the same Amish family for about 16 years and was their buggy horse. He was like a family pet and they said he loves candy. His former owner said that recently he seemed to be a little off and lately he would sometimes get scared when driving. His owner also said that Revenge rides, but an evaluation would need to be done by an experienced person to determine how well he goes under saddle. The transporters who hauled Revenge to his current location in New York said he appears to be laid-back and easy going. According to his breeder, Rev's dam, LS Miss Pine, was an awesome jumper who had a heart like a lion - she would not quit. She won several working hunter and jumper classes with her owner. She was 14.1 hh and could clear a 4 ft 9 inch jump! The dam line is known for their longevity; Rev’s dam lived to her late 20s or early 30s and Rev has an uncle who is 31. His sire, Brassy, was a typical Morgan clown. And yes, Rev loves candy but he hated candy corn! This is a very handsome Morgan who would love to find his special person and be someone's pet once again!
