    Default NEER rescue story

    Back around April of this year, New England Equine Rescues( NEER) pulled a scrawny lice infested 3 year old stallion from a neglect situation.
    (See below " before" pics )

    Fast fwd to now

    (See below "after" pics)
    name changed to Gigolo he is doing great, looking ever so handsome and sporty. Gig is now gelded, quiet, and in need of a little rider to help break him to saddle to ensure a good home.

    Gig is in North Dartmouth Ma. If you would like information on fostering Gig (like a free lease with first rights to adopt) or if you would like to donate training to NEER, he would greatly appreciate it!

    email his current foster mom for more info secret02871@yahoo.com


    Thanks for your time and interest in NEER..

    He looks awesome. Good luck finding a trainer, heheh I have five or so who could use one LOL
    Our horses are not seen as the old and disabled they may have become, but rather as the mighty steeds they once believed themselves to be.
