Facts about Holly $500

  • Breed: Thoroughbred Mix
  • Color: Bay
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large
  • Sex: Female
Holly is a 2002 model 16.3 hand Thoroughbred mare. She wasn't very fast so didn't stay long on the track. By the time we got her in May 2016, she was extremely neglected in poor body condition and had very neglected hooves. After a veterinary treatment and a veterinary feed plan, she's now feeling great, at a healthy weight, and her hooves are rehabbing very well.
Holly has received some groundwork training with us and assessments under saddle. She has good ground manners, leads, loads well on a trailer, stands great for vet and farrier, and is very easy to catch. Under saddle, she seems green as far as retraining from the track but she's sensible, not spooking, and willing to learn. We haven't been able to do much under saddle work with her yet, as her hooves are still rehabbing.
At this point we are not yet sure whether Holly will regain full soundness under saddle. She has made outstanding progress so far. At this point, we would consider a forever home offer to a home who is willing to keep her whether or not she becomes rideable for a low adoption fee of $500. We would also love to find her a foster home. If and when she does become sound enough for us to continue her training under saddle, we will raise her adoption fee to reflect that.
Our rescue is in Seneca SC. Our horses are current on basic vaccines, dentistry, hoof care, Coggins, and are microchipped.
To be considered for adopting Holly, go to and fill out an adoption application. This doesn't obligate you to adopt, it just gets you approved so that we can have you meet and ride Holly. If you don't hear from us within 2 business days of sending in an application, then call us at 864-972-9994 or email You can also email with any questions about Holly.
Holly will sell with a no breeding contract.

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.
