(Description and photos provided by Rescue Group):
Max: An “adorable” 17-year old Arabian/QH gelding. He has pinto markings and a beautiful long mane and tail. Sadly, he was severely abused in his early life (he was used as a “dancing horse” in a circus) but has a come a long way and is a wonderful and loving boy. Part of his abuse was that he was beaten until a few of his left teeth were knocked out, but he eats just fine without quidding. He’s a bit head shy so you have to go slowly with halters and fly masks. He is rideable but will take an intermediate to advanced rider. He has excellent ground manners, stands well for the farrier, trailers and ties just fine, no food aggression (he shares his lunch with his best friend Misty). He is a sweetheart and would love to have a forever loving home. (Max is very bonded to Misty if someone wanted to take on these 2 beauties.)
Misty: A gorgeous White “Flea Bitten” 18-year old Arabian mare, standing at 15.1hh. She has lived most of her life as a 4-H horse, however, once her usefulness was over, she was then left to pasture, received no veterinary care and starved. A wonderful woman learned about Misty and that she was going to be euthanized so she rescued her (at that time Misty’s body score was a “2”). She spent 3 years rehabilitating her. Misty is a true beauty inside and out with a great temperament, she is an “in your pocket” kind of horse and an easy keeper, social, stands for the farrier and vet with great ground manners. She is rideable and would be suitable for a beginner or intermediate rider doing trail or arena
work. (Misty is very bonded to Max if someone wanted to take on these 2 beauties).
