BrookeJul07Web Brooke had a bright future. A young, foundation quarter horse filly, with beautiful sorrel coloring; part of a herd of mares and watched over by several stallions – she had her  whole life ahead of her. But then the nightmare began. The grass was gone, the grain was gone, the hay was gone – for a long time. Brooke watched sadly as some of her fellow horses and cows died from lack of food. Only the strongest would survive. The old and the young were the most at risk; and she was one of them. One day, several people with badges came and brought food. It felt good to have a full belly again, even though it would be a long road for Brooke’s  body to look healthy again. With the help of a lot caring people – some with badges, some who rescue horses – Brooke  came to True Blue Animal Rescue. Now, at only 2.5-3 years old, Brooke has a bright future again. She’s halter broke, willing to trust, and ready to start under saddle. She would make a beautiful addition to your stable. buster2006

Mocha is doing beautifully, she’s in a stall with a  run  and she is coming up to us on her own now and letting us pet her she still flinches a little, when we first touch her but she LOVES attention, she likes to lick your hand, and she loves to have her face right next to yours, we got a halter on her and she seems much calmer now she didn’t even put up a fight when we put the halter on her. We just slowly introduced her to the halter and within a couple of days we got it on her. She just stood there while I cut her mane, she is such a good girl!!!! We’re working on leading her with the lead rope and desensitizing her back half now hopefully soon we can get ahold of that tail lol!! I have attached a few pictures so you can see her. Take Care, Gin’a

Color: Flea-bitten gray and white pinto with some appaloosa characteristics
Breed:  Pony of the Americas (POA)
Registered Association: Reg #:  
Abilities: Can be ridden
ADOPTED – Thank You! Location: Brenham
Description: Riverdancer has had lots of groundwork and been ridden some with an experienced English rider. She is the alpha mare in the pasture  Riverdancer is cautious around people at first, but warms up and is then very sweet. She needs an experienced rider and will do great with children with some more training.. The little cloudy spot on her left eye is from an old injury, but it’s cosmetic – it doesn’t cause her any difficulty or vision problems. 

RoseyHdweb

Name:  Rosey T-Bar #:  H088
Age: 10 yrs Sex:  mare Height: Weight:
Color: Red Roan
Breed:  
Abilities: She is halter broke, gentle on the ground. Rosey is rideable; and needs an experienced rider. 
ADOPTED – Thank You! Location: Washington
Description: Rosey’s life had taken a dire turn; and she didn’t know how much longer she could go on. She and 3 other horses shared a small pasture in the country that had long since run out of grass. Water was scarce, and there was no cover from the winter weather. When the owner did bring some food, Rosey and the 2 other horses let the baby horse eat first. Then the older boy horse, Chief, let the two girls – Rosey and Duchess – eat next; but it showed. He was skin and bones. Thankfully, the authorities seized Rosey and the other horses; and the court awarded them to True Blue Animal Rescue where they could be rehabilitated. Rosey is halter-broke, has fabulous ground manners and is probably rideable. A beautiful, 10 year old strawberry roan, Rosey is healthy again and ready for a loving, forever home.

Description: Once upon a time, a skinny mare was rescued from her sad situation and brought into True Blue Animal Rescue (TBAR) for rehabilitation. Turns out this poor girl was not only trying to sustain herself on the little food that was available, she was also trying to feed her baby. Fortunately, with the good food and TLC at TBAR, this mom had a healthy baby girl. Being the first baby born into TBAR, she was named True Blue. Fast forwarding to the present, True Blue has grown up into a beautiful three year old ready to start under saddle. She has deep brown, soft eyes that show her gentle, loving character. Her most stunning feature is the white heart on her forehead. If you’re looking for a young, beautiful horse to train, True Blue might be just right for you! She is current on her vaccinations and Coggins negative.
