JoeBabe

JoeBabe

JoeBabe. 2012 More Than Ready – Brief Bliss, by Navarone JoeBabe is spectacular.  Big (17 hand) beautiful bay, retired unraced.  JoeBabe was pointed toward foxhunting as a second career, but he craves structure.  He LOVES arena work, and does not enjoy working out in the big wide world.  He would be a phenomenal mount for an amateur dressage rider.  For the experienced rider he could get right into show season.  Hunter Jumper is also an option for this beauty.  He’s great in the arena and sound for jumping. JoeBabe has an excellent personality with no vices.  He’s a solid, remarkable horse.  PPE welcomed. JoeBabe’s adoption fee is $3,500. Apply today!

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...

Henry Gram

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. Henry is one of those horses that breaks your heart. We know where he was his entire life, except for the last three months of 2017. In January, 2018, he turned up owned by a kill buyer, where the Standardbred Retirement Foundation found him. One of his grooms who adored him paid to save him from a terrible fate, and he arrived at Safe Harbor in February. Upon arrival, he was at least 250 pounds underweight, stressed and still in race mode. It has taken several months of food, pampering and love from his foster mom to get him to a good weight, but Henry’s problems don’t end there. At age 12, he has the body of a 30 year old. Henry has arthritis in all 4 fetlocks and some tendon damage from his years of racing. He is beginner broke to ride and gaited, but he will require an owner willing to maintain his comfort with Legend/Adequan, spa days, and etc. Short rides around the farm would be perfect for him and he does enjoy feeling useful. Henry pastures fine with mares or geldings. He will do best on 24/7 turnout with access to shelter. Henry has a huge personality and needs an owner who will maintain a leadership position on the ground, as he can be pushy. He is wonderful for grooming, baths, and routine care. His adoption fee is well below our “After the Track” minimum due to his care requirements, at $200.  If you can give him the fairytale happily ever after he is looking for, apply to adopt today!  ...

Snow Flow

Snow Flow

Breed: TWH Age: 12 (approx) Color: Champagne Height:  14hh  SnowFlow is an approx. 12 year old, 14 hand Tennessee Walking Horse mare. She’s had 60 days of professional training with Perry Neal, plus she had some obvious halter-horse training in a previous life, as she will park out. Snow has never known neglect; she was simply a pet to an older gentleman who entered hospice care. She would excel under an intermediate-advanced rider who can finish her under-saddle education. Snow gaits in the field, but trots under saddle, so her adopter could take her in either direction. Her foster mom reports that she is a forward, beautiful mover who may make a nice English pony.  Snow leads, stands for the farrier, stands for grooming, and is up to date on shots/Coggins. Her adoption fee is $400....

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...

Cool Mac

Cool Mac

Age: 20 Breed: Tennessee Walking Horse Height: 15.2 hands Rider Level: Intermediate with Walking Horse experience/Advanced Cool Mac is 20 years young and about 15.2hh.  As soon as you mount he works towards getting a head set and is ready to move out.  He’s best suited to a rider with experience that likes a forward horse, and could be intimidating to a beginner rider.  He is very easy to handle on the ground, very social, and easy to catch.  Mac is easy to lead, load, tie, and he stands for the farrier.  He has a mild swayback, which actually makes this TWH even more comfortable to ride. Mac was likelya former padded show horse but he gaits beautifully barefoot.  His foster mom is taking him out trail riding, so his experience in rescue is not limited to farm only.  He is veterinarian evaluated to be sound, but shoes are recommended for off-farm riding due to a medial scar on one coronary band that affects the hoof wall. This gentleman has an adoption fee set at $300, and he is trail ready.               ...
