|Breed:||Other/Unknown/Tennessee Walking Horse Mix||Color:||Chestnut/Sorrel||Age:||Young|
Rusty came to the rescue as a foal with his mother Cheyenne (registered Spotted Saddle Horse) and father Reddy (Tennessee Walking Horse/QH Cross). The three were surrendered because thier owner could no longer afford to care for them.
Rusty has done a lot of growing in the past year, and he has been gelded. He does not show any signs of being gaited. He is very friendly and he loves people. He's been given a lot attention over the past year at the rescue. He has a great temperment. He has responded well to the basic training that Ken has done with him. You can put a halter on him, pick up his feet, groom him, etc. He is ready to go home and grow up with you.
Rescue Group Info...
River Edge Farm Horse Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3) public charity that is owned and operated by folks who have been rehabilitating horses for many years. The rescue consists of 63 beautiful acres in Middle Tennessee where horses of all breeds and ages are taken in and cared for.
We strive to provide the best care possible for every horse that comes to the rescue by beginning with an individual evaluation. Each horse receives vet care (including dental work and vaccinations), hoof care, and a nutrition plan. Nutrition requirements and feeding schedules are developed initially, and then adjusted as the horse progresses. In addition to the basics, some horses have special needs that require long term training in order to make them candidates for adoption.
Adopting a rescue horse can be a very rewarding experience and some rescue horses require special handling due to their past. References are required for all adoptions. Adopted horses must stay with the adopter for at least one year. After that, the horse may be sold. If there are extenuating circumstances and the adopter cannot keep the horse, it must be returned to the rescue.
Adoption fees are based on the age and training of the animal. The fee helps with expenses, but does not begin to cover the costs of hauling, vet fees, feed, and rehab.
Our equines come from middle Tennessee. We are willing to adopt horses to permanent homes outside of this area.
