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: Companion 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.

RKT NORDIC CHI TEA #174399

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

2003 Chestnut Gelding, Said to be Morgan, Height : TBD
Fostered in NC
Rehomed August 2021
Adoption Fee: $300

Rides

He is an Angel! Does not like a bath, but will stand for one. Stands in cross ties perfectly. Let's me groom him and clean his feet with great patience. Likes his stall, but came from 24/7 pasture. Eats well.

Really mixed well with my herd! I introduced him one at a time and no problems at all! My mare is on stall rest so when she gets out there might be a little fuss, but am hoping not.

Loaded onto trailer first try. He is beautiful! My vet says he is a bit on the chunky side so I will start trying to get some weight off.

Willie is about 18 years old he was ridden about a year and a half ago. He is very well trained, but he doesn't do flying lead changes. Walk trot canter he is good at in the ring or with a drill team. He will need shoes if ridden because he has rather flat feet. I think he can work on the trail, just needs confident rider, good in the ring and goes in a full cheek snaffle bit advanced beginner. Rides English or Western. Easy going under the saddle.

MISS STARS N STRIPES 0160626

ARBORIA EXCELLENCY x CHF FREEDOM’S GLORY
2003 Registered Bay Mare, 14.1 hh

Fostered in IN
Rescued April 2021
Adoption Fee: $600

Update May 2021:

Birdie arrived in foster on April 17, 2021. She is quiet and timid. She has the sweetest face with bright eyes and she will now nicker at me in the morning for breakfast. Birdie loves to get scratches, pets, and treats.

She is easy to groom, will stand quietly with the lead rope draped around post. She becomes frightened when tied to the wall or when trying to put her in cross-ties. She was said to be wonderful with her feet, but since coming to foster, she has been reluctant to let her feet be picked up. You can, however, run your hands up and down her legs without issue. Birdie has not offered to kick or bite. We will keep working with her on her feet and will try to determine if she's just afraid or if she is in pain when standing on only three legs.

Birdie has been fairly easy to catch. She is said to be lightly green broke under saddle and supposed to be well broke to drive. Once quarantine is complete, we will start seeing how she is under saddle.

Birdie is said to get along with everyone. She has been introduced to our two goats and has been very good with them. Once her quarantine is complete, we will see how she does with the other horses.

Birdie appears to be in good health, but she does need to gain some weight. She did receive her first round of spring vaccinations from the vet on 5/6/21. She was nervous and scared with being handled by the vet and technician she was unfamiliar with so she didn’t stand still well for exam and shots.

Birdie does well in a stall and is fairly neat with no destructive behavior, however, she is a cribber.

I believe overall she is a very sweet horse who just needs to regain some confidence that she is not in danger with strangers.

First Update:

We got Birdie at auction. She came with the name Raven but since we already had a Raven, she's Birdie until we find out if she's registered/registerable. There were no papers with her but hair will be sent in for DNA.

This is the note that was with her from the auction. She "is the sweetest thing you will ever meet. She's easy to catch, loves to be groomed and is wonderful with her feet. Never has offered to kick bite or have any attitude at all! She is lightly green broke under saddle and supposed to be well broke to drive. Gets along with everyone and doesn't have a mean bone in her body. She has her coggins and teeth were done (March 16) The bad: Raven is a cribber, not destructive and not a wood chewer. And she sits back against the halter when frightened but will not break it.."

2009, Black mare, height TBD
Fostered in NC
Rescued Feburary 2021
Adoption Fee: $700

Update 8/7/21:
Meet sweet M&M (Beauty), fostered in North Carolina and available for adoption. She was the mare who was rescued some months back with the pinto gelding. He didn’t end up coming but she did at the end of May, a complete mystery. She was pretty rough, even after a couple of months boarding from quarantine, and boy has some sunshine, nutrition, and love done well for her!

She has many fears and her primary response is to go straight backwards, but she is less afraid every day. She now passes through all gates, wide and narrow, without issue. She stood beautifully for the vet and vaccines today, she is easy to catch in a pasture, she stands well for grooming. She got a bath today and while she didn't love the hose, she tolerated a bucket and sponge okay, and she LOVED getting her face washed.

I’m concerned that she doesn't see well (or at all) from her left eye and I think that's part of why she gets scared of enclosed things like narrow gates. Once she establishes some trust though, she's so much better and easier! She’s a lovely, sweet mare who's clearly been really abused in the past (zoom in to pics of the deep indentation in her nose), and deserves a family who will give her a life of love and kindness. I haven't tried riding her, but I did put a saddle on her and walk her around with it, and she was just fine. DNA has been sent and was no match.

Wick has been living the life outside 24/7 this summer with another gelding. He is fly sprayed daily. He is currently eating a bute tab daily out of my hand with a majesty's flex cookie wafer & a handful of feed. He appears comfortable. He was happy to have his fly mask off today in the rain.

Wick is enjoying summer in NY grazing with a buddy. He is about 900 pounds now, and gets just a 1/2 cup of senior feed with a bute tab.

He's easy to catch with or without a halter, wears a flymask outside, crossties, stands quietly to be groomed, clips, fine to handle hooves, takes treats, and parks out.

2012, Bay Mare, Said to be Morgan, 15.1hh
Fostered in MN
Rescued January 2021
Adoption Fee: Companion Horse

Eva was an Amish driving horse. When she got here I had my farrier pull her road shoes off. Her hooves are very brittle for some reason. About 5 days after pulling her shoes a huge chunk of her right front hoof broke off. Both the vet and the farrier believe she had an abscess about 3 months prior so it was a weak spot. Now a couple days ago a chunk of her left front broke off. We are starting her on a hoof supplement to help strengthen her new hoof growth.

I also trailered Eva to the vet for leg x-rays she has mild ring bone in both hind legs. In both of them they are starting to fuse so the vet isn't too worried about them. Her left front is normal. Her right front has severe ring bone. He gave me an anti-inflammatory to try and see if it helps her.

Right now she also has girth itch that I am trying to treat (it is hard when it is cold and the treatment is to use shampoo and other liquids!) right where her harness went on her.

Eva is a super sweet girl! She follows me around like a puppy. I call her my shadow! She loves attention from everyone. She is great for the vet and farrier. She is the dominant horse in the herd.

KAT

Kat

GETTERDUN KATBIRD COMMAND

2000 Registered Bay Gelding, 14.2hh
UVM Alliance x TM Kathleen Command
Pedigree
Fostered in MD
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! We were told that he was ridden when he was younger, but because it's been awhile, we started him like a young horse. He has polished his sense of personal space, his patience and his manners. His groundwork is good; he gets haltered, led and cross-tied daily. He also quietly handles longeing (both directions), bridling, saddling, surcingle and side reins. Kat takes his work seriously.

This gelding is a friendly, agreeable sort, not at all skittish but sometimes unsure of what's being asked. He tries hard to cooperate and learn, but he sometimes has to search his mind for the right "tools" to respond correctly. He rarely needs to repeat a lesson. He's easy to catch and is an easy keeper without showing any signs of insulin resistance. His current setup is a stall with attached 10'x20' paddock, plus 8-12 hours of turnout daily, and he does well on this plus a handful of grain and 2 flakes of hay per day.

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, we turn him out alone so that he doesn't go through attachment and separation again. He's been respectful of our fences.

Kat is a "talker" who will rattle a gate or a door if he thinks you're ignoring him; he greets you with a big whinny, and he continues with rumbling little nickers to be sure you don't forget him. Although his weight is good and has been good for some time, he worries that you might forget to feed him. He's been quietly curious of our trails, where I've taken him in-hand, and I think he'd rather be a trail horse than a show horse...although he does have clean, straight action and is a very good-looking gelding.

Kat's teeth were floated in October, 2020, and he had his spring vaccinations, Coggins (negative) and fecal for parasites (negative) in April, 2021. His hoofs wear themselves off on their own, and he hasn't needed farrier work, although he was trimmed before he arrived here and I'm told the farrier had no problems handling him.

Watch Snoopy's Video

Updated March 2021

Blossoms Wink and Nod AKA "Snoopy" is a sweet natured gelding who is always curious about what you are doing! He has built trust over the last 2 years and is now an in your pocket type of horse. He gets along with the other gelding and mare at the barn and is playful. He has excellent barn manners and stands great for the farrier. Snoopy was initially underweight, but since reaching an ideal weight he is an easy keeper, he is also barefoot. He is gentle around adults and children. He would do best with an intermediate rider in a quiet ring setting who is willing to be patient and consistent.

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.

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: Companion 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.

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.

Fostered in AZ
Rescued December 2017
Adoption Fee: $700

Update May 2021
Nobi/Nic is very good boy. I have been working on ground work with him. He's a good boy but tends to get scared and reactive sometimes. I don't think he is being anything but reactive to certain situations. He lunges pretty good and is doing well on his ground work. I have given him a few spray downs now that it is getting warmer and is starting to accept the water. He's good for the farrier. He's good with my 3 yr old and is teaching her some manners. I don't think he has ever been ridden. He tend to be a bit spooky of any thing coming towards his back. That I am working on also. Does great in the round pen.

Update Sept 2019
Nobi is learning appropriate ground manners. He is currently babysitting our just weaned colt. He will start saddle training in the next few weeks. He can be stalled or turned out, respects fences. More pictures to come as he begins saddle work.

Nobi loves attention. Ties loads good in stall. Good on fences and with other horses. Low man in pecking order. Easy easy keeper. Good feet. Good for farrier. Utd on worming and shots.

Rides

She is lovely and quiet, does not react to anything. Her brakes are very good and she knows how to move off the leg. She is blind in her right eye but she has clearly learned to compensate as she is not worried when you are working with her on that side of her body or riding her around obstacles. She does still have some thrush in her feet which I am treating though it does not seem to bother her. She continues to flourish with good nutrition and regular handling. Her only handling issue has been rushing out of her stall or through a gate. With treats she has quickly figured out those ground manners!!

2005 Bay mare, Said to be Morgan, 15.1 hands
Fostered in MD
Rescued June 2021
Adoption Fee: $1200

This is Bindi, a gorgeous 16 year old bay Morgan mare fostered in Maryland. She is a very quiet, sweet mare with wonderful ground manners, who loves a kiss on the nose. She stands 15h1 and is happily putting on weight since her rescue. Her feet need farrier work from road shoes left on way too long, but with regular work her angles can be corrected and she will be much happier.
