Hello! My name is Rosie
|Breed:||Quarterhorse/Pony - Other Mix||Color:||Bay||Age:||Young|
Rosie came to the rescue with Blue, a walking horse. Her previous owners had taken her in when neighbors would no longer care for her. She was surrendered to the rescue because she was becoming a burden for her current home. Outside of needing to be wormed, Rosie was healthy when she came to the rescue and has continued to be an easy keeper.
Rosie has grown some since she came to the rescue, but it seems that she will not grow into a full-sized horse. We expect that she will remain pony sized. She is a pretty mover and has great potential. Rosie is extremely friendly. She will come over to you, just waiting to be petted or fed treats. She is waiting for an adopter who teach her some manners now, and get her into a training program when she is old enough to ride.

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.
