Ash's Story...
**Please click on our organization name "Circle P Sanctuary and Ranch" for more information on adoption policies and fees** ____Ash History____ Ash was surrendered to us in December of 2011. He was seen by The Ohio State equine veterinary team and has been doing great. We have been told that Ash is a great riding and trail horse. After spending some time in foster care, Ash was moved to the equine center to begin evaluation. ___Ash Current_____ Ash is a friendly horse that gets along well with other horses, although we have had to separate him from the mares. He is a bit nervous at times around humans and we are working with him every day to re-establish his trust in people and he has really come around. He came to us underweight and with skin issues. Now that he is healthier and is shedding out his winter coat, Ash is starting to look a lot better. Along with continued groundwork, Ash has also accepted saddle and a bitless bridle without a fuss. He does still have some anxiety about allowing us to work around his mouth (such as accepting the bit and de-worming). He has been ridden in our indoor at a walk and trot with a bit less bridle and behaved well. Ash was taken into OSU for surgery on his right hock due to persistent swelling. At OSU, it was discovered that Ash had sustained an injury to that hock for a long period of time. His prognosis is good-fair and is still expected to be fine as a light riding horse. Since his recovery, Ash has taken back to under saddle work easily (although he can be lazy at times). He even maintains his calm demeanor while out on the trails through the woods and streams.

___Ash Future___ Ash has great promise as your next trail or show horse, as long as he is not pushed too hard. He has been responsive and kind while we work with him, and has really become a friendly and people orientated horse. Ash is looking for a home that is willing to work with him as he continues his under saddle work. Ash will likely always have some arthritis and swelling in his hocks, but it can be easily managed with a daily supplement or hock injections. He is best suited to a home looking for a light pleasure or trail horse.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ash, a Marengo Appaloosa/Pony - of America was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Appaloosa/Pony - of America for sale in Marengo, or seeking a Appaloosa/Pony - of America from a breeder in Marengo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Marengo already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Marengo breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Appaloosa/Pony - of America breeders who help with Appaloosa/Pony - of America rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Marengo paves the way for another one to be saved.
