|Breed:||Paint/Pinto/Tennessee Walking Horse Mix||Color:||Paint||Age:||Young|
Clover came to the rescue with her mother, Choctaw. She was very thin and avoided people. After gaining some energy from regular feedings, she began to act like a curious young horse. One of her favorite activities is splashing water out of her trough. She really came around as a friendly little horse once she realized that people could scratch her and give her treats.
Clover is now at a healthy weight and she is growing taller. She loves to follow people around in the pasture. She is ready for her forever home!
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.
