Turtle – (ADOPTED!)

Turtle – (ADOPTED!)

Turtle was an owner surrender from a women who has done an immense amount of rescuing of her own but has fallen on difficult times. She was a previous hunter jumper with a shoulder injury. We are carefully, with guidence from the vet, going to put her back under saddle to see if she can be suitable for any sort of riding. She is as sweet as they come. Stands well for farrier but isn’t fond of baths or fly spray. She is 7 years old and...

Queen was rehabbed at Valhalla Plantation under the watchful eye of Jennifer Cahoon and Judith Stuckey. She can be...

Boone – (ADOPTED!)

Boone and Queen came from Monticello. Their owner had a stroke and cannot talk or walk – and we have little to no info about them. David and I brought them to Valhalla, our newest foster, a week ago. Amazingly, you can already start to see a difference in them, now that they are on good graze, regular hay and senior feed (we started at three small feedings a day.) Boone is definitely a gaited horse. Within a couple of days they were...

Through great nutrition and some medicinal herbs, he is doing wonderfully!         These photos are from his foster mom, Sue, who reports that his first day under blanket and saddle went “exceptionally well!”...
