Hello! My name is Hope and Joy
Hope and Joy's Info...
I am purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, rideable, and up to date with shots.
Hope and Joy are twin QHs that almost died at birth. They were given to DETC as yearlings. They were adopted out but returned due to being too small. They have been back at DETC for four years. They were started under saddle as 3 yr olds and have been trail ridden taken to shows and their training continues. They are available to someone that has natural horsemanship training experience. They need a confident rider as they are very smart and will test inexperienced riders and just not go if they sense you dont know what you are doing. They must go to a home together. Hope is more lazy and more of a western pleasure mare, where Joy could go english or western.
Rescue Group Info...
I have rescued nurse mare foals since 2000. The nurse mare industry is based primarily in KY. The mares are bred for milk production only, the mare is then rented to an expensive TB race foal. The mare's original foal is a byproduct and is starved, left to die or taken to auction at just a couple days old. This is an industry with thousands of foals needing rescue every year. We have started an HIL(hormone induced lactation) program which brings mares into milk with hormones, thus preventing the unwanted foal and still allowing adequate milk production for the race foal. We have been promoting this for 2 yrs and this will be our main focus in the future so we are not only rescueing these babies but trying to stop them from even being born, preventing thousands of unwanted horses.
