Arrived at HCW: Aug 1, 2016
Barn Name: Josephine
Breed: TB or Appendix (Has a Lip Tattoo But We Can't Read It)
Height: Approx 15.1hh
Age: 19 y/o (a Very Young 19, She Does Not Act Her Age)
Health: No Known Health Issues.
Lameness: No Known Soundness Issues But Does Appear a Little Stiff When Lunging in The Round Pen (aka Tight Circles)
Most Recent Farrier: Jan 27, 2017
Vices: Hard to Catch in Big Field
Personality: Friendly When She Wants to Be (If You Have Food), Easy to Catch in a Smaller Paddock, She Has Separation Anxiety When Away from Her Friends, Not the Kind of Horse You Can Pull Out of the Field Once Every Blue Moon and Expect Her to Behave. She Does Best When Handled on a Daily Basis and Has a Routine. Not a Cuddly Horse.
History/Training: For Past 6 Years She Has Just Been a Companion/Pet and the Occasional Ride at a Walk as Her Owner Had Hip Issues.
Future/Suitability: Would be Best if She Was Started Over From Scratch to Teach Her To Be More Willing and Patient, and That Being Caught/Handled IS a Good Thing! She Needs Someone Who Will Spend Time With Her, Someone With Experience and Patience. This is NOT a Beginner Horse. I Think She Would Make a Great Trail Horse (As Long As She Was Ridden with Other Horses).
Additional Info: Previous Owner Said She Came From a Riding School Around the Kingston/Picton Area 6 Yrs Ago, and Teeth/Vaccs Were Done Last Fall
Adoption Fee/Purchase Price: DONATION ONLY. The Donations can be $$, Hay, Feed, Supplements, Feed Store Gift Cards, Saddles, English Tack, Western Tack, Riding Apparel, Blankets, etc (in good usable/sellable condition).
We would also gratefully accept volunteer chiropractors, massage therapists, vets, dentists, farriers, etc. Please Email us if you are interested in helping out in some way! Thanks!
We no longer accept cheques due to all of the NSF cheques we have received in the past. We accept email money transfers or cash. We know we will never recoup what we have invested into Josephine, so we understand we will be taking a loss, and we are used to that, but we do need to get something for her, as we cannot help more horses, ponies and donkeys until we find good homes for the ones that are here. The adoption fees are very important in keeping HCW running. Josephine needs and deserves a good permanent loving home.
Current Status: Located at HCW in Cameron, ON. Available for Adoption/Sale or Fostering/Lease (Until Adopted). If you have any questions about Josephine and/or would like to make arrangements to see her, please email Claire at
