Featured Horse

Cassie

Aquarian Star Vision

2020 Chestnut Morgan Mare - 15.0 hh
Aquarian Supremacy X Capes Olive Command
Fostered in NY
Rescued April 2023
Adoption Fee: TBD After Veterinarian Evaluation

A foster or adoptive home is needed immediately

It is our understanding that Cassie was an Amish buggy horse. She is not broke to ride but was said to drive. She is currently living as a pasture pet. Cassie is a kind horse. She has shown no inclination to kick, bite, or pin her ears towards people. She can be head shy when putting a halter on or off, especially if you move fast. She moves her head away very quickly and could hit someone not expecting it. She leads fine with no chain but is not for beginners because she can get animated. She stands well for grooming, tied or not. She allows her bridle path to be clipped with no problem despite some head shyness at times. She tolerates baths but can be a little dancey. She stands well and lifts all feet for the farrier. She is good for the veterinarian when receiving vaccines.

She is currently in an indoor double size stall that is always open to a 3-acre grass pasture. She decides if and when she wants to go out. Hay and water is always available inside. She is grained and supplemented morning and night. She has been the only horse here so it is not known how she is with other horses but she does not seem to be mean. She is currently in a hotwire fence that is not always on and respects it. She would likely be fine in any fence although she likes to occasionally chew wood. She paws a lot, not aggressively just casually, when she is standing around and any time of day or night seemingly for no reason as she can always go outside and always has access to hay.

She has an old scar on the right hock but it does not seem to affect anything. She is missing 3 top incisors and 1 bottom incisor so far on the right and there are more bottom teeth that look like they will be next to fall out. However, she currently does not have any issues eating. Cassie also has stringhalt and will be evaluated by a veterinarian soon to determine if she is sound enough to be ridden.


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 - Needing A Foster Home

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.

Judy

Spirit Ridge Judy

2006 Bay Mare, 14.2 hh
RKT Nordic Vals Shadow X Bramblerun O Joy by BRW Corboni
Boarded in NY
Rescued November 2023
Adoption Fee: $500 Companion Horse

Judy is in need of a foster or adoptive home. Forever Morgans Rescue will provide a foster home with a $100 monthly stipend for hay/feed and will pay for her Equioxx. Please e-mail us at forevermorgans@hotmail.com if you are interested in adopting or fostering Judy.

Judy is a very easy keeper, has a good mind, enjoys people, and respects your space. She is easy to catch and halter. She has a little sway back but we love the old-style Morgan build and she is full of dapples in the spring. She stands to be groomed and enjoys it. You can walk right up to her and groom her. She will stand still in the paddock eating hay while groomed also. She is good with fly spray and wormer.

Her current routine includes daily turnout in a dry lot and stalled in the evenings. However, during fly season, she is turned out in the evening and night to avoid too much stomping. She does not have any bad stall habits and enjoys laying down in the shavings. She respects electric fences as long as it is on and working well. If it is not on, she will lay on it and rip it down. She has also been in round pen panel fencing and does not push on that.

She loaded well into a 2-horse straight load trailer with a ramp. She ate hay and was quiet for trailering.

Judy is pushy when coming in the barn on a lead for feed time or inclement weather. She will try to drag you to get to her stall as fast as she can knowing feed is there. The boarding barn where she is located is working on this with her. She is not for a beginner to lead for that reason. Judy is very herd bound and will scream in a panic if she is the last horse to turn out, or when a horse she is attached to gets turned out first. She is a dominant mare and will push others around to establish her dominance while in turn out.

Judy receives Equioxx daily for comfort due to a previous ankle fracture which is fused. She has her days when she is sore and limps on her left front. Most of her weight is put on the outside side wall of the hoof because of her crooked ankle. This cannot be trimmed to straighten out as the bone structure in the hoof is higher on the inside than the outside of the hoof. This is a result of how it healed. Severe pigeon toe is a way to describe that hoof. Often after a night of stall rest, she is comfortable. This injury does not prevent her from standing for the farrier. However, she does not stand long on her injured ankle, so the farrier needs to give breaks often while trimming the opposite front hoof.

Sparky 2

Sparky 2

2004, Bay gelding, Said To Be Morgan, 14.3hh
Boarded in PA
Rehome December 2021
Adoption Fee: $300

Sparky is a personable, in your pocket sort of horse who needs to be kept in a gelding herd only. He will try to mount a mare over the fence, so a strong board fence is recommended.

His daily routine involves feeding, stall cleaning, turning out, and fly spray. Sparky handles very well.

He cross ties well and it behaved for grooming, farrier, and bathing. He loads in a step up trailer and hauls well. He is currently turned out in wooden fending alone.

Former adopter noted he was demonstrating stud-like behavior around their mare. It was discovered upon an initial vet exam that he has a healed broken coffin bone in his front left, that is managed well with aluminum shoes on the front only. We do not recommend him for riding.

JW Alladdin

1998 Bay Gelding, 15.3hh
Nobility X Serenity Tisa
Fostered in PA
Rescued April 2024
Adoption Fee: $1,200

Justin is an Amish driving horse who is looking for a retirement home. In addition to driving, he is broke to ride. His current owner says he is a wonderful riding horse, and is her preferred horse to ride. He is still able to be lightly ridden by a light weight rider. He has also been used for therapy riding, and has experience giving lead line rides to kids. Justin loves people and nickers to his mom each morning. This horse has a great personality! Justin is also an easy keeper. His diet consists of hay and a little grain. He is very well behaved to lead and to handle on the ground and for clipping and bathing. He loves to be groomed and loves treats. He is great with the farrier and veterinarian. He loads into a trailer and handles trailering well but has not been trailered a lot. He does not have any behavioral issues, no special needs, no vices, and no health issues. Any type of horse safe fencing will work for Justin. He is currently in electric fencing but even bailing twice will keep him in. Justin is an alpha horse, so he is currently not turned out with other horses.

Adoption Fee: $300 Companion Horse

Max, or Big Ben’s daily care routine includes feeding, stall cleaning, and fly spraying. He is quick when leading so an advanced handler would be best.

Kid

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: $300 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.

Not Rideable

His current daily routine involves feeding, grooming, and fly spray. Kid is blind and can only see shadows. This makes him nervous to handle and should have an experienced handler. He loves being groomed, but has not been cross tied. He stands well in the stall for grooming. He has only trailered when picked up in 2020 before losing full sight. He is very loving and has no behavioral issues. He is currently turned out in wood fencing and round pen panels. He is gentle and stands well for the farrier.

Kid is described by a former owner as a fun horse to drive who loves attention. 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.

Nordic

Nordic

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: $300 Special Needs

Not Rideable

Nordic gets daily turnout, but in the summer does best with limited turnout as he does not tolerate bugs well. He will stand for fly spray when haltered. He used to be pushy when leading, but has largely improved. He will attempt to escape his stall when it is being cleaned, he is very smart.

Nordic would benefit from some firm handling and work on giving to pressure. He is sweet, kind, and so beautiful. He is not mean at all, he was just never taught much. He is adapting and we are seeing many changes in him for the good. Experienced handler who can work with him to lead, in a contained area.

He has tied in a stall well, and loves being hosed off with water. He stands well for the farrier in the stall.

He is on Equioxx in the winter and as needed in the summer, and is good for administering medications. He stands for floating without sedation in a stall.

He has been turned out with other geldings, but can be possessive around mares. It is best for him to be turned out without mares nearby.

He is an easy keeper and does not require much grain. It would be best to keep him in a dry paddock to avoid overeating on grass.

He is a beautiful horse with a very kind demeanor with people. He is in no way at all mean, no bite, no kick, no pinning ears. Has never ever showed any aggression ever to anyone. He was never taught how to be led or handled and he goes with what he knows, using his brute strength to do it. People failed him, but he is trying and not so pushy as he used to be, he has a beautiful expressive face. He is very easy to love.

It would be best if he is turned out in solid fencing with an electric strand to keep him from walking through it. Round pen panels and just electric fencing will not be suitable for Nordic.

Dark Shadows Mystery

Dark Shadows Mystery

Dark Shadows Mystery #

2011 Registered Black Mare, Height : TBD
MATLICK VIEW RANGER x MONACO MEXACALI ROSE
Boarded in PA
Rescued November 2019
Adoption Fee: $300 Companion Horse

Not Rideable

Notes from previous owner: Mystery 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 Mystery 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. Mystery foundered at some point, although it was a mild case. Her low fetlocks 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.

Notes from current boarding barn: Daily care routine involves feeding, stall work, fly spraying, blanketing. She is nervous to lead and needs an advanced handler. Mystery cross ties and is good for the farrier. She likes grooming and bathing. May have some trauma in the past that causes nervousness but would do well with a patient hand. Loads well but gets nervous hauling. With a personality that is always aiming to please. Has been trailered in a step-up trailer. Currently turned out in round pen panels and stalls. Has used electric fencing in the past. Possible DSLD.

King/Casanova

2011(?) Bay grade Morgan, 14.2H
Fostered in AZ
Rescued in May 2023
Adoption Fee: $500 - Companion only

King was rescued from a pen in TX as a stallion. DNA did not match so he is grade. He has been a gelding for 9 months and still can act masculine but easily managed. He can be boarded next to mares/geldings but needs turnout alone. He respects all fences here, braid electric and pipe. He is fine in a stall and turned out.

He has an old suspensory ligament injury and arthritis RH fetlock so is not rideable. He is sound at the walk and not on any medication.

He is not a pocket horse but is quiet and easy to lead and stands for the farrier. He eats grass hay with a pound of senior.

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.

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: $500

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.
