BEAU (CL)

BEAU (CL)

Category: Riding
Age: 20
Gender: Gelding
Height: 15.3

Breed: Tennessee Walker

Bio: I am looking for a retirement home for my sweet, older horse Beau. He is in his early 20s, 15.3, and gaited. He is extremely people-friendly and gentle. No buck or bite and is a "bomb-proof" type under the saddle. I would like to find a home where he can be cared for in a relaxing and loving environment for the rest of his days. He is still able to be ridden lightly but would need to gain a little weight and get back into shape. I often hop on him bareback but haven't done many long rides on him lately. He is up to date on everything and is very healthy overall. He does have a bit of stiffness in his left hip that might benefit from supplements or pain meds, but is doing okay without them now- consistent, light riding has helped to loosen up his hip in the past. He does best when he can make a connection with another docile horse as he is extremely submissive and always the lowest of the pack in group settings- he can be a hard keeper when kept in a group because he is easily pushed around. Beau is a very gentle soul and can get anxious when removed from his buddy or when faced with new, unexpected environments. He is most confident when he has a consistent routine and knows what to expect. If you are interested in learning more about Beau or coming to meet him, please text, call or email me. Thanks!

GEORGE (CL)

GEORGE (CL)

Category: Non-Riding Companion
Age: 22
Gender: Gelding

Breed: Quarter Horse

Bio: We are very sad to announce that George will be retiring from the programs at Hearts & Horses. Prior to joining the herd, George had a very successful competitive, but physically demanding, career as a cutting horse. As he has aged he has been experiencing periods of lameness that over the past year have not responded sufficiently to treatment to allow him to comfortably continue to serve our participants. We are beginning the careful search to find that perfect home for George, an amazing gelding who has been a favorite here at Hearts & Horses since 2016. George's ideal home is one with a space large enough to live without too much fresh grass. He needs the company of geldings rather than mares. George is retiring from Hearts & Horses to become a companion horse, however he would LOVE to be able to continue to do an occasional pony ride at the walk with a young child from time to time. If you are interested in George, please submit a "Letter of Interest" to our Director of Equine Services, which should contain information about the following items: - your experience with horses - what George's job would be - a description of the living situation available for him (turn out, quality of feed, shelter and general care) - your ability to meet, maintain and provide care in case of a veterinary emergency Send your Letter of Interest to Liz de Kock - liz@heartsandhorses.org. If you have any questions, you can also call Liz at (970) 663-4200 x 304 Thank You!

Monterey and her four foals were brought to Colorado Horse Rescue to rediscover life. Monterey is an EXCELLENT liberty horse! She loves to play with people on the ground.

SOPHIE (CL)

SOPHIE (CL)

Category: Riding
Age: 11
Gender: Mare

Breed: Quarter Horse

Bio: This 11 year old registered mare is a sweetheart that has been started. Over time we have seen swelling above her back hooves which the vet said is from mal-nutrition when she was young. As long as we keep her trimmed on a regular basis she is fine and I believe would be ok with light riding if she is finished but I cannot guarantee. She is very sweet, halter broke, accustom to the saddle, ties well, stands well for farrier, in good health, up to date on vaccines. I have been on her many times and was ready to start moving out with her and I got injured so she had no further work for the last 5 years. $800
