Hello! My name is Cookie
Cookie came to the rescue after worried calls from her previous owner. The owners of the farm that she was staying at would no longer allow her to stay there. They told her owner that if she was not removed from the farm, Cookie’s life was in danger. After some scrambling, her owner found transportation, the rescue found space, and she is now safely at River’s Edge.
Cookie has an interesting story. Her mother was a mustang adopted directly from the BLM. A few months after the adoption, there was a second animal in the field with her mother. At first glance it looked like it might be a deer. A closer inspection showed that it was a foal! This means that Cookie is a full mustang — bred on the range — but she doesn’t have a brand because she was born in here in Tennessee. Unfortunately, Cookie’s mother was not very interested in having a foal, so Cookie was bottle fed by her previous owners.
So far, Cookie has been a friendly horse. She is a little pushy and needs some ground manners. She is healthy, but has some cloudiness in one eye, so she may not have full vision on that side. Cookie is ready for training. Please call if you would like to add her to your family.

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.
