Misty

  • Foaled: 1990
  • Sex: Mare

  • Rescue Status: Fostered Off Site. Not available for adoption.

Don't let the name mislead you - Misty is a crystal-clear farm favorite. Originally rescued from a local auction, she was later surrendered to RVR by her owner, emaciated and with her teeth in poor condition. But nothing could keep this pretty girl down, and with lots of care and attention through the Barn Buddies program this gentle and affectionate girl has risen to new levels of confidence.

Kimie

  • Foaled: 1997
  • Sex: Mare
  • Breed: Paso Fino
  • Color: Bay
  • HH:
  • Rescue Status: Sponsored. Permanent RVR resident, not available for adoption.

Kimie was found in an industrial park emaciated with shoes falling off her feet. The workers of the park contacted RVR Horse Rescue for help. We rushed over to find Kimie standing there. It was amazing she was alive. We brought Kimie back to RVR where our farrier was waiting to tend her her feet. Kimie has called RVR home since that day. She is a very sweet girl who is quite the clown. Kimie isn't sound to ride anymore but is a nice pasture pal.

Sarge

  • Foaled: 1987
  • Sex: Gelding
  • Breed: Appendix
  • Color: Grey
  • HH:
  • Rescue Status: Sponsored. Permanent RVR resident, not available for adoption.

Sarge was found emaciated and with an injury to his back right leg. RVR rescued him in 2012 and nursed him back to health. He suffered from arthritis that keeps him from being ridden but he has many years of love to give still.

Sally

  • Foaled: February 1998
  • Sex: mare
  • Breed:
  • Color:
  • HH:
  • Rescue Status: Sponsor Needed/Available for Adoption!

Sally Date of Arrival: 1/16/17. Owner Surrender. Approximately 19 yo pony. Sally's teeth hadn't been filed in a very long time. Her mouth was full of sores. We've already had them floated. She has a floppy ear (injury not known) and her right eye is swollen. Dr. Gold took care of some ingrown eyelashes and her eye is being treated daily. She normally wears a fly mask, but we took it off while she had her woolly coat, mane & tail brushed today. She enjoyed the attention. More info to come.

Freddy

  • Foaled: 2007
  • Sex: Gelding
  • Breed: Paso Fino
  • Color: Bay
  • HH:
  • Rescue Status: Sponsored. Permanent RVR resident. Not available for adoption.

This shy, sweet boy was found, scared and emaciated, in a dog cage in someone's back yard before he was rescued. But far from belonging in the dog house, this little gentleman takes direction very well and exhibits excellent ground manners while on walks. Still uneasy around loud and sudden movements, he has gained lots of confidence through our barn buddy program and continues to come out of his shell. Though he is unsound for riding, Freddy has made a permanent place in the hearts of many.

 

Chancey

Chancey - Chancy Pants

  • Foaled: 04/15/1995
  • Sex: Mare
  • Breed: Thoroughbred (OTTB)
  • Color: Bay
  • HH:
  • Rescue Status: Sponsored. Permanent RVR resident, not available for adoption.

Chancey came to RVR when her previous owner was done with her. She was abused, neglected and starved. Chancey was abused so badly that she suffered neurological problems and needed regular chiropractic care to be comfortable. Chancey can never be ridden due to the abuse she endured. She is a great pasture pal and companion horse.

Rose

River Rose

  • Foaled: 2004
  • Sex: Mare
  • Breed: Paso Fino
  • Color: Gray
  • HH:
  • Rescue Status: Sponsor Needed, but Rose is a permanent RVR resident and not available for adoption.

If you're looking for a sweet, quiet horse to build a relationship with, River Rose is the one for you! This expressive girl endured a great deal of trauma while being kept at an illegal slaughterhouse, but that hasn't stopped her from shining. A tad bit timid, but very social once she feels comfortable, she loves hanging out in her stall, getting rubbed on, and anything carrot flavored. Tested under saddle and was a dream, she is  full of love to give, this is one rose that has blossomed in spite of her past!
