Pumpernickel's Story...
Pumpernickel (Nickel for short) was surrendered to the rescue by his owner. A few days before he arrived at the rescue, he cut his left hind leg on a barbed wire fence. His owner did not want to surrender him, but she knew it was for the best since she could not afford vet care. The cut in his leg ran deep with bone and tendon exposed. Thankfully, nothing serious was injured and he was able to walk on his leg from the day of his injury. He had numerous vet visits throughout the healing process.

During his first 6 months at the rescue we were diligent about changing his wound dressing several times a week, and his leg slowly healed. Finally this summer he was able to be released into the herd. His previous owner said that she rode him but we have not put a saddle on him, and we cannot verify how well he is broke. He has a gentle temperament and is ready to go to a barbed-wire free home where he can have the attention he deserves.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pumpernickel, a Lyles Quarterhorse was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Quarterhorse for sale in Lyles, or seeking a Quarterhorse from a breeder in Lyles.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Lyles 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 Lyles 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 Quarterhorse breeders who help with Quarterhorse rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Lyles paves the way for another one to be saved.
