Bill is bonded with his younger brother Abe, and they are now available for adoption as a pair. They will not be separated.
A lady called us in tears! She and her husband were at their wits end! Someone had talked her husband into letting them keep their horses and minis on their property over a year ago. They said they would pay all the expenses, buy feed & hay and care for the animals. It just did not happen that way and after not seeing the owner for a year, this woman and her husband did not have the means to continue caring for and feeding these animals that did not belong to them. Animal control had paid them a visit and they could not take responsibility for these animals any longer! Animal Control is aware of the situation, this is not the first time they were notified about this same owner and her lack of ability to care for her animals. They tried to contact the owner and she just would not answer their calls or texts. What else could they do? They did not want to animals to suffer, so they called PPER!
They were malnourished, all wormy and in desperate need of hoof care. They did have their shots and our vet evaluation to check their age and health.
Abe has gained 200lbs and likes attention but is still learning to get along in a herd as they were kept in small, enclosed space for years.
We have put the harness for diving on him with no issue but have not yet hooked him to the cart or tested them for riding.
Abe and Bill need a sponsor for their care and a dedicated volunteer to work with them.
Abe and Bill are now available for adoption as a pair. They will not be separated.
