6 gorgeous WBs/Hackneys, giveaways in NY
***ETA: All are placed now except Carousel... beautiful Hackney/TB... extensive driving experience, but has arthritis. Could be rehabilitated to drive, but a retirement home would be ideal. Very sweet horse who deserves a good home!***
My friend and her mom are caretakers for six carriage horses at the Wethersfield estate in downstate NY, and the owner of the estate has decided he no longer wants horses on the property and wants them gone. Here is info she posted and links to pics (they're from her FB page, but hopefully the pictures will work):
ALL 6 Wethersfield Horses need new homes. If you know of anyone that would foster one, two, or more of these wonderful older horses, some of whom are in good usable riding and or driving condition please contact for more info. Any good home will be considered. No horse dealers please. Please forward this on to anyone who might help. Below are photos with descriptions. Contact: 845-373-8589 Ask for Sandy or Cerice. Or, email pangaeaequestrian (at) live.com for an email with photos and descriptions.
