Novella

Novella

Breed: TWH Age: 21 (approx) Size: 15.1 hh Gender: Mare Novella is a 21 year old Tennessee Walking Horse that originally joined Safe Harbor in Operation Free At Last, a legal seizure in White County, TN.  She came rescue with a yearling on her side, and having recently miscarried a foal. She was a body score of 1. Novella returned to Safe Harbor earlier this year due to an adopter who did not follow guidelines of care. She has spent a couple months regaining weight, seeing the vet and farrier, and is now clear for adoption. At 21, she does need an easier job, although she will benefit from hill work and rides to help rebuild her topline. We recommend an intermediate rider for her at this time. She has a very sweet disposition and leads, loads, ties, and stands for the farrier. Her adoption fee is...

Lavena

Lavena

Breed: Arabian Age: 20 (approx) Size: 14.2hh Gender: Mare Lavena has returned to Safe Harbor after being adopted in 2014. She was the ‘first horse’ for the kids in the family and taught them to ride. Sadly, those kids have grown and moved on to other interests. Lavena has some arthritis and at this stage of her life, is ready to be an ‘around the farm’ horse for an adult, or teach another child to ride. She will not be suitable for hard riding or any sort of performance discipline, and would benefit from a daily joint supplement. For the past few years Lavena has wanted for nothing, and has had exceptional experience being ridden on the farm by the whole family, and off farm by adults in the family.  She is forward and energetic, so we suggest an intermediate rider for her, though she could do well with a beginner who is taking lessons or is a confident rider. Lavena does well with a bitless bridle, and can be ridden barefoot.   She is a gentle beauty, and ready for her next chapter. Arabians are known as easy keepers who live long and healthy lives. Lavena’s adoption fee is $350.   The following details and photos are from Lavena’s intake back in 2014 when she was originally rescued: Lavena came to Safe Harbor from a seizure in partnership with Animal Rescue Corps.  She was BCS 1 on arrival to rescue, and her muscle tone was entirely depleted.  This lovely mare is absolutely trusting and loving.  She just wants her new lease on life, and is willing to fight for it.  Lavena is good with children and dogs in the pasture, and craves attention. November 19th Update: Lavena was down on the morning of November 19th due to extensive muscle weakness as a result of starvation neglect.  In agreement with our vet, we decided that Lavena should leave her foster home and go stay at the clinic as an inpatient for 7+ days.  Now,  more than ever, we appreciate your support of this sweet mare. February 4th Update: Lavena has been cleared from rehab and is officially adoptable.   We expect her evaluation to be completed within the next 10 days.  Lavena is broke to ride, and we anticipate that she will be intermediate ready.  She can be a little flighty of fearful objects, but she enjoys accompanying her foster mom on regular hikes through the woods.  Lavena also enjoys a gallop across the property, and is feeling in peak condition now that she has been re-fed, and is once again at a healthy weight.  Lavena is currently eating Triple Crown Senior and Alfalfa Pellets in her foster home.  When she has reached...

Henry Gram

HENRY GRAM (2D968, G) HENRY CLAY – LEXIE GRAM – SWAT TEAM   GENERAL INFORMATION Foaling Date: 02/25/2006 Sex: Gelding Foaling Place: SALEM, IL Color: Bay Tattoo: Freezebrand: 2D968 Death Date: Embryo Transfer: Markings: STAR; STRIP CONNECTING SNIP; LEFT FRONT CORONET; LEFT HIND PASTERN WHITE. Parent Verified: Yes Eligibility: US – Pace Henry Gram; born Feb 25, 2006 is an Off Track Standardbred with over $200K in lifetime earnings.  He was actively racing until late 2017.  Henry had a goat buddy when he was on track, and was well-loved by all who worked with him.  He is broke to ride and drive. On the ground – Henry is somewhat pushy, and needs a strong and confident owner to take a leadership position with him.  We recommend an experienced owner who knows how to set boundaries. Under saddle – Henry is soft and calm.  He is safe for a beginner rider.  He has a nice walk and a gait that is super easy to sit.  He’d fit in perfectly in a group of walking horses for trail riding, and would really enjoy that as a future path. Driving – Henry currently looks at being hitched as being at the races.  He needs time with ground driving to calm his brain down, and to learn to slow his speed to normal levels for pleasure driving.  Driving is old hat to him, but going slow with a cart is not something that has been asked of him much in life yet. If you are looking for a gorgeous, sound, younger standardbred ready for trail riding now, then Henry Gram is a great fit for you!  If you want a trained to drive horse that can be retrained for pleasure driving then Henry is great option as a project.  An owner with solid horse experience will be a must for Henry, but he will be one of the horses in your pasture that you can let a beginner friend safely ride.  His adoption fee is $500.  ...

Eve

Eve

Breed: Straight Line Egyptian Al Khampsa Arabian (out of Shams Al Shalimar) Non Registered Age: Approx 13 Height: 13.3hh Eve (pronounced Evie), is a beautiful mover who is in need a quality experienced home.  Eve has been in training with Lyons riding, and is progressing beautifully.   Eve likely spent the beginning of her life as a brood mare with limited handling.  She is registered, but initially came into rescue through a cruelty/neglect case and registration is not able to be transferred.  She is a petite mare, pony sized.  She is very very intelligent but also sensitive, and will require a home experienced not only with horses, but preferably with her breed as she is a very typical arabian–seeking a connection, and wanting a bond with a single individual.   She is fine in a mixed herd, and is pastured in a large field and handled daily.  Eve does better in a nylon halter than a rope halter as she is sensitive around her head.  She is eligible to be adopted by an experienced home only, willing to continue her training.  Her adoption fee is $300. Eve is T.I.P. Program...

Salt-N-Pepa

Salt-N-Pepa

Salt-N-Pepa, or Pepa as we call her in foster is an approximately 20 year old leopard appaloosa mare that came to us with a digestive issue caused by a hormonal imbalance.  Pepa receives a hormone shot once a month which solves this issue, but it will be something she requires as ongoing maintenance.  The cost for this shot is about $20/month, so it is affordable, and she is a great horse worth every cent! Pepa is an absolute darling on the ground.  Exceptional manners, gentle, craves attention, stands ground tied for grooming or blanketing, and has no issues with the farrier.  She is not currently food motivated, but we suspect that is due to her perpetually upset tummy, and once that is under control she should be perkier about food. Pepa is cleared for adoption, but has not yet been evaluated under saddle.  We are classifying her as “intermediate/advanced” at this time based solely on the merits of her ground manners.  Her adoption fee is...
