This section is for Rescue Horses that are currently part of our rescue organization that are currently not up for adoption as they are in training, elderly or have medical issues. They support the second part of our mission which is to educate the public on horse care and rescue in general.
Star was among 24 horses in Ashland, Ohio in December, 2007 that needed to be rescued. Star came to Angels Haven with severe malnutrition, and her hind feet had grown to 15 inches long, and were curled up. Her hind feet were so bad she was actually walking on her ankles and pasterns. She, like Eclipse, was covered in manure. Star wears a special type of horseshoe to try and help her feet. Star has made a full recovery but is not able to be ridden because of her rough past. Her ankles are much better. Star is lunged at a walk, trot and canter. When she is out she makes sure to get her running in, especially when you want to catch her! Star is not up for adoption, but she is currently being sponsored by Linda.
Garnet and her brother Lucky Boy (now deceased), were rescued by Angels Haven in 2007. Garnet is a Welsh Mountain pony, and stands about 8 hands high. She is about 23 years old, and is chestnut in color, with some white markings on her legs and face. When she was younger, Garnet and her brother pulled a carriage for the Biltmore Hotel.
At the time Garnet was rescued in 2007, she had been tied to a tree, along with her brother. She was eating tree bark and dirt, and was malnourished and underweight. Some neighbors tried to help Garnet and her brother, and put them inside a garage. Unfortunately, the garage had pieces of glass on the floor. When Garnet and her brother were brought to the Rescue, after paying their owner $950, they were given a nice large, clean stall with a small attached paddock to go in and out of as they pleased. A healthy diet, with supplements, was fed and Garnet’s weight increased. Regular vet and farrier care have also aided in keeping her healthy.
Garnet is used for groups of Girl Scouts, Indian Guides and Princesses, Pony Parties, and other functions. She’s used for teaching grooming, pony rides, and will not be up for adoption, however she can be sponsored. Garnet has found a very loving home here at the Rescue.
Squirt is an absolutely cute, strong, black mini horse. He has the bushiest mane and forelock, and sometimes it sticks straight up! Squirt was rescued by Angels Haven from an elderly lady who was unable to properly care for him, due to her inability to move around without falling. Squirt was brought to the Rescue, in hopes he would be a new friend and companion for Garnet, after she lost her brother Lucky Boy.
Squirt may only be 1/2 the size of Garnet, but he is very strong. He is able to lunge at a walk and trot, and loves to be brushed. One of Squirt’s favorite activities is running in the arena with Garnet. Squirt has made a good friend and companion for Garnet. We have hopes that he will be able to help with group activities. Squirt is now a friend of the Rescue and will not be available for adoption, however he can be sponsored.
Thunder, the baby of Rain, is a mini-colt who was rescued by Angels Haven in 2009. He has recently been worked under a saddle at walk and trot, he is still a little uneasy about a canter. He is great on a lunge line. Thunder is not up for adoption, but is currently being sponsored by Sharon.
Rain is a mini-mare who is the mother of Thunder. Rain was rescued by Angels Haven in 2009. Rain is not up for adoption, but can be leased or sponsored.
Casper, a gelding, was rescued from a situation where there was no shelter, and he was not receiving proper food or hoof care. He was very thin, but has been steadily gaining weight. Casper is about 24 years old, an Arabian cross, and can be lightly ridden. Casper is a favorite in our educational camp programs! Casper is currently being leased.
Jackpot is a pony, and came to us with behavioral issues. Jackpot is doing much better now, he can jump and is a solid pleasure horse for an intermediate rider. Jackpot can be feisty, but is still a favorite in our educational programs. Jackpot is currently available to be leased or sponsored.
The newest addition to our Rescue family, Painted Glory was rescued in 2012 at 8 months old as she was being sent to auction. She has a sweet temperament and we are enjoying getting to know her.
