Melody

Melody

SML Enchanted Melody

2000 Registered Chestnut Mare, 15.2hh
Nanton's American Made x Corinthian True Destiny
Fostered in VA
Rescued October 2019
Adoption Fee: $700

Update 4/21/20 from foster: Melody, who came to our farm in December 2019. She was very thin. I did not think it would be good to saddle her up, so thin, with her shoulders, withers etc so bony. With the Covid virus, I have not taken her to the trainer as I had hoped to do, they have shut down their farm, for now. So, she is happily here, eating grass, enjoying my herd, and I think feeling very well. She moves wonderfully, and has an incredibly nice temperament, very easy to handle, very responsive. For now we are just waiting. For a twenty year old, she is fabulous, does not seem that old at all, plays in the field, sometimes bucking for fun. She gets along well with my mare and my other two geldings. I have had no problems with her at all, except keeping weight on, which I think will be easier with grass coming in now.

Last recorded owner bought her as an investment because she was green broke and he enjoys the excitement of finishing horses and selling them to a new owner. He trained her to ride and drive. While she initially tried to buck him off, he could eventually ride her anywhere and got to the point where she was fine for an amateur to ride and drive with no trouble. He used her as a road horse and also used her under saddle on trails. She listened quite well to commands and was pretty easy to handle. She cross tied. She did not crib, and he can’t recall any issues with trailering her.

If he recalls correctly, she was built in a slender way but tall for a Morgan at 15.2-16 hands. He said she was totally sound when he sold her and can’t recall any issues with her feet. He sold her at Mel’s Sale. After so many years with another owner, who knows what might have changed. But in her younger years she was a solid riding and driving horse.

Rena

Belle Fonte Rena 195955

2010 Bay Registered Morgan Mare, 14.3hh
RKT Nordic Sunny Hawk x RanchBoss Arianna
Boarded in PA
Rescued October 2019
Adoption Fee: $500

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.

Dream Girl

CHMH Dream Girl

CHMH DREAM GIRL #0166752

2004 Chestnut Registered Morgan Mare, 15.2hh
Black Tuxedo Issac x Roche Jaune Miss Montana
Fostered in MA
Rescued October 2019
Adoption Fee: $800

Dream is described as a big, strong, nicely built mare with impressive looks by her two most recent recorded owners. She is said to be sound with nice feet and no vices.

She was trained to drive by the Amish but was not driven much and ended up becoming a broodmare because she was never at ease pulling a buggy. She does, however, have potential as a riding horse. Though the owners we spoke to could not recall if she was ridden or broke to ride, her driving training should give someone a head start toward saddle work. At approximately 15.2 hands, she could handle a taller rider.

Dream is described as good-natured but with a tendency to be nervous and can easily get worked up if her handler does not stay calm, so she will require an experienced, patient horseperson who is used to working with green horse. Previous owners said she ties, loads, and trailers without issues.

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 her previous owner since the age of 2. She was ridden lightly for a couple of years when she was very young but has not been ridden since and was never trained to drive. She lived as a companion to an older Morgan gelding in a large pasture in northern Vermont. She was never blanketed and was accustomed to roaming the pasture. She is very sweet and quiet. Upon intake, a veterinarian evaluated her and described her as healthy. Holly was a bit skittish upon arrival at her foster home but has adjusted well to being there and now enjoys being groomed, getting treats, and greeting her foster person. She has bonded with the foster's Morgan gelding and mustang mare.

W-B Amazemint

1989 Chestnut Morgan Mare, height : TBD
Windhoverenchantmint x MR. R's Miss America
Pedigree
Fostered in VA
Rescued April 2018
Adoption Fee: $300

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.

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 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.

Penncrest Phoenix Rising #145816

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

Updated September 6 2018

Phoenix is great on the ground and in his stall. Still doesn’t like lunging. Rides well at the walk and trot. He will also ride out side the ring. Would make a decent trail horse. Can be hard to get to canter. He’s sound as far as we know. Is suitable for a Intermediate Rider. Can be handled by beginners on the ground.

We have decided he doesn’t lunge. He hates it and doesn’t really need to be lunged. He will ride either English or Western. He is still sticky at moving forward but he is getting better. Not dangerous and can be ridden by a experienced /rider. Either adult of older child. Phoenix likes people and is well mannered to work around. Good with Vet. Farrier Bathing Clipping, tying bridling, and saddling. Needs a Strong Leader but can be handled on the ground by anyone. He does wind suck and is a hard keeper because of that. Phoenix is a healthy sound horse. Just needs more riding. He would do well in a pasture where he wouldn’t crib so much.

The Baptist #163603

2002 Black Registered Morgan Gelding, 14.3hh
Black River Trojan x The Cat
Pedigree
Fostered in WY
Rescued December 2017
Adoption Fee: $700

This boy is a reg Morgan named The Baptist - 15yrs old - 14.3h. He was saved off the Peabody, KS kill lot and is looking for his adoptive family. The Baptist is going to need at least an intermediate rider - someone who can keep him calm, who can stay relaxed if he spooks, and who can ride through stuff like that. He is reserved at first but succumbs to scratches easily - he has excellent ground manner.

The Baptist has trust issues especially around men. He needs a person who has the skill and time to build his trust.A really good fit would be someone who could train as well as build the relationship.
