Facts about Skye

  • Breed: Paint/Pinto Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large
  • Sex: Female
Skye is a 15 hand 6 yr old Paint mare (unregistered). She came to us from a feedlot where we were told she was going to ship soon to slaughter. She came to us underweight and handled very little but has quickly gained to a healthy weight.

Skye has received 2 months of professional training, focusing primarily on groundwork, at Sweet Carolina Acres and is currently in training at All Purpose Horsemanship. where she is being ridden daily. Skye will walk/trot/lope under saddle and has been ridden in an arena and out on trails. She does still get nervous under saddle so needs a very experienced rider / trainer to continue her education under saddle. She leads, loads, picks up all feet, stands tied. She's barefoot (riding boots are used for very rocky ground) with good hooves. She's sound and healthy. She will sell with a no breeding contract. Skye's adoption fee is negotiable considering that continued training is needed - if you are interested in adopting her, please contact us and we can discuss details of adoption. Our goal is for her is to go to a great home where she will either continue in professional training or, if a new owner didn't wish to ride her, they would have the option of not continuing professional training. We are including continued professional training through March 1st as part of her adoption.

Our rescue is in Seneca SC. Our horses are current on basic vaccines, dentistry, hoof care, and Coggins.

About CARE - Crossroads Animal Rescue

About Our Shelter...

CARE was founded to decrease euthanasias in Oconee County, SC. We primarily aquire animals from the local animal control. Most of these pets would be euthanized if we did not take them. Once in our program, they are adopted out through us or transfered to another rescue/shelter where they are not at risk for euthanasia.
We work primarily with puppies and kittens as this is the age group most likely to be euthanized at our local animal control.
Our equine rescues are primarily neglect cases from animal control. We design feeding programs for them to gain weight back safely, provide hoof care, and treat any medical problems. Once healthy enough to adopt, we find them loving homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Come to 8409 W. Oak Hwy, Seneca, SC anytime during business hours to meet our on-site pets. Our on-site pets are primarily puppies in the 4-6 month range and all ages of kittens and cats. To meet a pet in a foster home (this includes most young puppies as well as most adult dogs and all the horses), call or email to schedule a time. We will arrange to have the dogs/puppies brought to the clinic for you to meet or arrange for you to go to the foster home where the horse is staying.
We periodically have adoption events where we take some of our adoptable pets. Follow us on Facebook to learn of adoption events.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt a pet from CARE, contact us and give us the information for our adoption application. This can be via phone or by going to our website, downloading the adoption application, and filling it out and emailing it to us.
Once we receive your application, we will contact your vet references and review the application to approve you. This can usually be done on the same day you apply. Sending in the application does not obligate you to adopt.
You may meet our onsite pets prior to filling out the application if you prefer. For off site pets, we do request an approved application before scheduling a meeting.
To adopt after being approved, you simply pay the adoption fee and take your new family member home! You may adopt over the phone and then schedule to travel to meet your new pet. Adopting over the phone does require paying the adoption fee which is non-refundable if you change your mind about adopting.
Adoption fees vary depending on which pet you are interested in. These are often listed on the pet's profile but if not, feel free to email or call to ask.
We are available for phone calls weekdays 8a-5p and Saturdays 8a-Noon. You will reach the receptionist for Crossroads Animal Hospital which is the vet hospital who founded CARE. After working hours, we can be reached via email which is usually checked daily but may take up to 48 hours for a reply.
