Adopted!! November 21, 2012 - Fannie and her brother Pharaoh have found a home together! We are so excited!! They have moved to a farm in Delaware to live out their lives with a very awesome family, another rescued horse, and a few other farm animals. Congratulations Fannie, Pharaoh, and the Carpenter family!! We look forward to receiving updates!

Pharaoh is an owner surrender from NJ. He came to us with his partner Fannie Mae. An elderly married couple bought Pharaoh and Fannie together from a breeder. They were brought up as pasture pets and had not been off the property prior to coming to FHHR. One of the owners died and the other wasn’t able to continue caring for them – they were to be euthanized if placement couldn’t be found. Both horses had quite a fan club and the information shared was that they were wonderfully kind and intelligent.

Pharaoh and Fannie Mae...A gorgeous pair! This pair of half sibling arabs are the epitome of lawn ornaments and have been together since they were six months old. They don't come any better than this.....beautiful, kind and friendly. Time was drawing near and the neighboring horse community became involved with their case and worked hard to beat the clock to find them homes. No potential homes were on the horizon for them ... down to their last days..... we stepped in to care for these stunning horses. They have been very well cared for. Although neither was trained to ride they have nice ground manners and enjoy the company of humans and are very healthy and have a zest for life. Both of these horse tie, stand for grooming, farrier and vet. We have the registration papers for them both. Arabs are known to live long healthy lives. These horses really are in the prime of their lives.

Pharaoh - Dark bay/ Black gelding 15 years old 15 hands tall. Pharaoh is the leader of the two. He is the explorer and makes the way for them both. He is very confident and kind in every way. He has a snip and four white socks.

Watching these two interact is fascinating. They have been together their whole lives. We would like to place them together. If they don't find a home over time we will try to separate them for saddle training but we feel the cost of separation anxiety may be too high. Training them to be a driving pair has also been a topic of conversation. They certainly would be stunning and would work well together. Ultimately they may simply need a home that loves them for what they are. Horses do not have to be ridden to be be enjoyed. They can be taught to do in hand or at liberty maneuvers together. There are many folks out there that love horses but are not confident enough riders to feel safe while riding. These horses can give you a different dimension of horse don't have to feel guilty about not riding!. They are intelligent and want to learn and be handled. They will not be happy tossed in a field and left to be bored without regular interaction with their owner.
