Here are some "SGER Alumni" that have gone through and been adopted to loving families...
SLIPPERS FOUND A HOME! This most excellent fellow left for his new home Dec 1, 2011 and will be deeply missed around here. Slippers was here for a year and a half an really made an impact on us here in the rescue. We wish him and his new family, the Kings, all the best!!
Pics of Slippers hooves before....
AND AFTER, one year later...
THE CHEXICAN - A chocolate palomino minature who was part of a group effort to rehab and rehome! All this fellow needed is some good groceries and he certainly got that. He is off to his new home to be a buddy of another mini that recently lost his pal.
SQUEAK is the latest to be adopted from SGER! He will be staying here for a little while before going to his new home. He is such a sweet little guy he will most definitely be misssed when he finally goes to his new familys farm!
ABOVE - Twiggy the day before she went to her new home. She is a grade palomino QH mare, approx 12 years old. Came into the rescue with a 2 week old foal at foot (SQUEAK can be seen on FOR ADOPTION page) and was exceedingly emaciated. Scored a 0 on the Body Score charts. Rehabbed and adopted out 30 days later and 200+ lbs heavier. Twiggy was adopted to a private equine therapy centre in Markham where she will be used as a therapy horse. What a perfect job for such a sweet mare. Good luck B.P. with your newest "employee"!!
BELOW - Twiggy on her first day at the rescue.
DOZER - a sweet Clyde gelding who was rehomed to a loving couple. What a sweet fellow he was!
CHUNK - appropriate name... this guy was a SOLID QH gelding whose mission in life was to be a buddy of other horses. He was adopted out as the pal of a perchx filly.
FORD PINTO - This guy was going through a laminitic episode when I first got him. Through the use of meds, magnet therapy, laser therapy and icing he was brought back to full health and SOUNDESS! He was adopted to Park Lane Ranch as a lesson/pony club mount! Ford was also started under saddle, gelded and had iodine injections as he had a locking stifle issue post laminitis. This fellow certainly got the works while he was here!
AUDI - This tall handsome fellow was a Hannoverian gelding who needed a new home. He had some arthritis in the front joints and needed some groceries.
DAMIAN - Yes, he was named because he was a Wee Devil and was a stud when he came into the rescue. He was adopted out as a driving pony and went with a gelding clause as it was fly season and not a proper time to geld. He made himself at home in his new family!
HETTY - a funky Saddlebred cross mare who was a fantastic jumper and eventer! Nothing wrong with this girl that a few groceries couldn't fix. She went on to continue showing and working as a lesson horse!
MINX - This girl came in as a show prospect but turned out to have a twisted front leg. She was a reg'd CSHA filly who was adopted out to Dr Calarco.
POCKET - cause all he cost was pocket change! He was an appendix colt with a dropped rear pastern. Other than that he was a lovely sweet guy who went out to the Windsor area to a new family.
RAVEN - A black STB mare who went on to a new and loving home. This girl was a sweet tempered as they come. Was going for meat.
SPUD - a 12hh pinto pony who came in with some SEVERE attitude problems due to improper handling. He was quite aggressive and he demanded some special treatment (namely, removing the manlies!). He was started under saddle following much groundwork using natural methods... he was first leased out as a lesson pony then as a pony for a little girl to learn on. He finally went as a mount for a little boy to learn the ropes with. He was a definite success story in rehabbing and getting a new lease on life.
MADDIE - TB mare who was under threat of euthanization as the owner was afraid to let her go to anyone else. She was rehomed as the mount of a young lady who loved her to bits!
Irish bred jumper mare who was rehomed.
The day Stretch arrived....
2 months later...
Ah, nothing like a shiny blooming coat! Strech packed on the weight and grew about 3 inches in the 4 months he was here...
STRETCH - was a 2 y/o TBx colt who went to the Great White North. He came in very underweight and went out a pudgy, happy, virtually BOMBPROOF fellow to a loving new home. This guy would stand in front of the ATV while it was running and keep asking for more treats. NOTHING fazed him and I think he would make a great show horse!
ASTIN - This guy came in with AUDI and was a white aged pony/hony who was blind in one eye. He was underweight, but VERY sweet and trusting. He went out to be the mount for a little girl who was physically handicapped.
PIGGY (below) a sweet Halflinger mare who came here with the help of a bunch of great people. She was relinquished into the care of a lovely girl who helped get her started on her route to a new home. Piggy had foundered and has turned out to be Insulin Resistant.
Piggy was adopted by a loving family who can't get enough of their new best buddy and are working together with their vet and farrier to keep Piggy going down the right path to slimness and health! Happy to say this mare was adopted out only 30 minutes from my place so I get to see her whenever I like!
SUGAR - (below) was a chestnut AQHA mare who had the ever so common issue of navicular. She was originally bought as a trail horse but was not working out due to her soundess issues. I was given the mare and she ended up coming up servicably sound through the use of barefoot trims. She went to a home out in Niagara on the Lake
Bet Lar Little Tom - 12.3hh reg'd Welsh Section C. Adopted out again to a family involved in Mounted Games! Looking forward to following this guys career as a games pony! Congrats! :D
Horses added as they find new homes! Thanks for checking out our alumni!
GERT - 12 year old purebred Fjord mare, purchased from the meat dealer at OLEX. Gert was scanned for a microchip with the help of the Muskoka SPCA and we found out who she is! Gert was adopted out to the Renfrew area along with CHUCKIE, the dwarf mini who came in with The Chexican. Lots of fun in your new home guys!!
CHUCKIE - 5 year old dwarf mini who was part of a group rehome/rescue effort via the MuckBucket message board! He went with Gert to a new home in Renfrew Ontario!
