Here is a current list of horses in our care, more details to follow:
Onni – (A. A. Flutterbye) Foaled May 16, 2002, now 19 years old. Onni is a thoroughbred mare who was retired from racing and lived on a farm in PA where she was to be a broodmare. The farm was decimated during a hurricane, followed by a tropical storm, which left Onni living under a collapsed overhang, with debris in her field and no running water. The owner reached out to ERR for help, and we took in Onni, along with 3 other thoroughbreds there. Onni has since been rehabilitated and retrained as a low level hunter under saddle and shown locally, placing well in classes. Onni was then trained in dressage and shown, winning her classes. Since then, Onni is living a life of leisure, waiting for someone who does not mind that she is a mare, middle aged and only 15.3H tall. She needs a person, not a program, so if you think Onni would be happy in your barn, we would love to hear from you. Please know photos and video taken at various times during her time with us.
Hope – 13 year old haflinger mare. This stocky built mare has been tried under saddle and was pretty unflappable at the walk and trot. We have sent her out for assessment and training, and she rides English, Western, and drives. She spent time trail riding, packing, working as a therapy horse. She is sweet, loves people, is very food motivated, and needs a specific adopter who understands the breed.
Bo – COMPANION only -12 year old medium sized pony. Bo came to us, as he was purchased for pony rides at a petting zoo but was unable to perform his duties. Now at ERR, he is very sweet and personable. Unfortunately he will not be rideable and after veterinarian care, he has an old pelvis injury from earlier in life. Bo will continue to be mechanically lame, and we are continuing to manage any occasional pain due to the compensation on the rest of his body. His personality stays bright and he turns out well with other equines.
Bob – COMPANION ONLY – 28 year old quarter horse gelding with a sway back. Bob was left at a NJ horse auction, where he was unsold and unwanted week after week because he was no longer rideable. ERR was given the opportunity to help a horse from there, and we chose to take in Bob, to prevent him from being shipped to the New Holland Sales Stables in Lancaster PA. New Holland is known for selling horses to slaughter, and a kind retired lesson horse who spent his life working with people, deserved better.
He is easy to handle, cross tie, good with farrier and veterinarian. Due to a sway back, he is not a good riding horse candidate. He is middle of the herd in turnout and would be best suited as a companion horse or for someone who wants a deserving old chap to groom or use to teach basic horse care.
Murphy – SPONSORSHIP only – Murphy is a very senior quarter horse. In his younger days, he was a barrel racer. This gentleman of a horse lost homes twice due to cancer. At this time, he is in long term foster care and we provide for his grain, veterinary and farrier care. Unless circumstances change with his current arrangement, for his health and happiness we feel he should remain where he is. Murphy is seeking guardian angels and sponsors to help see him through his golden years.
Rosalie – SPONSORSHIP only – Rosalie was part of a stray/cruelty case in Sullivan County. She is a miniature horse, that was running loose for a minimum of 2 days before we caught her and brought her and her herdmates to ERR. She was found to have a halter embedded in her head and severely neglected teeth, both which hindered her ability to chew and digest food properly, leaving her underweight. To complicate matters, Rosie was also very pregnant. Her conditions were corrected, she foaled out a beautiful mini mule and was adopted in to a local farm.After years of loving Rosie, her mom fell ill and had to give up her farm. If you wish to sponsor a portion of her care, we would love to hear from you!
Tulip – SPONSORSHIP only – 30+ year old Haflinger. She was a rescue picked up at auction. When she came to ERR she was very skinny, malnourished, had both internal and external parasites. After lots of love and some consistent veterinarian care, she is healthier. Unfortunately she is neurological and cannot serve as a companion for a full size horse, so she will remain in ERR care to live out her time comfortably.
If you are interested in our horses, but cannot adopt, consider sponsoring!
Any amount is greatly appreciated towards the animals’ care. $150 will provide basic feed for one horse, for one month. Some of our horses are on supplements or have special needs.
If you would like to help with a specific need i.e. hay, medical, feed, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
