"Blaze," a grade 1-2 year old paint gelding, needs a great new home. He was rescued earlier this year from a man who had shoved him in a dog kennel. Yes, really. I saw the pictures myself (though I can't seem to find any copies, sorry).
Anyway, this is Blaze:
Blaze's rescuer is Heather Lynn Kraus, who lives down by Janesville. She says, "he was gelded September 20th, wolf teeth pulled at that time as well.
He has been on a rotation wormer schedule, trimmed on a 6 week basis,
never been "off" or lame. He stands 13.3 up front, 14 at the hip. He
has a negative coggins from 2012. Whoever gets him can pay for the
coggins at their expense. No health or soundess issues at all. He
vetted out in September as well."
Heather has put some training time on Blaze, and has spoiled him rotten with great food, a warm blanket and regular handling. Now, however, he needs to find a permanent new home. She was originally asking $400 just to cover part of his medical bills, but will take any offers and may even give him away free to the perfect owner. References required!
Heather prefers that you contact her on her Facebook page.
Aww, I just want to kiss the little snip on his nose.
Other free horses needing homes:
Beloit: Ancient App That Should Be Euthanized + Small 5 Yr Old Paint: Ad here.
"I have two horses that I need to rehome to a good home. I have one
strawberry roan appaloosa that is approx 25 years old. You would never
know her age by looking at her. She is up to date on all shots and just
had her feet trimmed. She is very easy going and friendly. The next
horse is a short breeding stock paint. He is a dark brown color. He also
is up to date on shots and just had his feet trimmed. He is approx 5
years old and is a bit timid but very nice. Both are pasture pets. The
appaloosa is too old to be ridden but the breeder stock paint is young
enough that he would be a great horse with training. Asking $95 for each
horse for an adoption fee to cover a coggins test. Please call
815-243-9532 with any questions."
