JESSICA- 24 year-old 14.2hh Standardbred mare- companion/pasture pet only. Jessica is a former Amish buggy horse who was saved from slaughter via New Holland auction. She is an absolutely excellent companion who gets along with minis to drafts. Jess would do best in a quiet home as a companion to another horse or pony or with a small group of kind horses. Due to her past, Jess needs time to warm up to new people. She likes to be left alone at times, but is a charmer at heart. She loves being brushed out during shedding season especially. Jess has a very expressive face. Jess comes with her own leather halter and nameplate. She suffered from laminitis during the winter of 2015 and foundered with a slight rotation (~5 degrees) in one hoof, but is barefoot and currently only on pergolide to keep her Cushings disease under control. Jess currently lives outside 24/7 with a shed. Available FREE to an approved home with contract with a minimum 60 day trial period. Adopter must be located within a three (3) hour drive of Howell, NJ. For more information or to request an application, please email [email protected] Adopt from HRU and you'll receive a painting of your horse after a successful trial period! You may also qualify for FREE transport within 200 miles of Central New Jersey.
