Freedom Hill Horse Rescue
Maggie & Roxie
Hi! I’m Maggie. The little brown pony, approximately 12H. I’m the lead mare here, so I will speak for both of us. Roxie is the white pony, approximately 14.2H. We came from the Davidsonville Wildlife Sanctuary. Our caregiver passed away, so now we are the (Thelma and Louise) of Freedom Hill Horse Rescue. We don’t know our breeds, but you know, it’s all about acceptance so it doesn’t matter anyway. We are both over 30 years old. I still have a little pep in my step and Roxie is a little slower. We both love attention and we are very good girls. Gentle and loving with soulful eyes. We just love to be fussed over. Because of our age, our teeth haven’t kept up with our spunky attitudes. Our hay needs to be shredded so we can eat properly. Since Roxie eats a little slower than me, I may go steal her food. Currently at off-site foster home.
Both are seeking Horse Angel Sponsors
Gabriel, a sweet and striking 15.3h QH chesnut gelding with a white blaze foaled in 1997, has a goofy and loving demeanor. He likes to make funny expressive faces and will quickly find his way into your heart. His favorite activity is having you groom him. "Gabe" has extensive western show experience and is a wonderful, patient teacher. He is perfect for a beginner rider. He is very forgiving of the unbalanced new rider and is a good babysitter. He stands for the vet, farrier, dentist, and loads in a trailer. Gabriel can be ridden lightly with proper treatment for on and off lameness due to arthritis and a cyst on his navicular bone. Special shoes and regular light exercise help him stay sound. Gabe would love to go for light trail rides. Because Gabe was found abandoned and starving with four other horses in early 2017, he may get a bit anxious at mealtime and lift his front leg up or paw at the ground but this is easily remedied by separating him at feeding time.
Currently being fostered with intention to adopt!
Adoption Fee: $250
Delilah is a Quarter Horse mare born in 1997. She is a beautiful cremello color with a possible champagne gene with green/blue eyes and stands at 15.2 hands. Delilah was found abandoned along with four other horses and taken in by Freedom Hill Horse Rescue (FHHR) in early 2017. She has rounded ears due to frostbite on the tips earlier in her life. Delilah has past western riding experience. Delilah can be boss mare in some herd situations. She stands well for the vet, farrier and does well being trailered. Delilah would be best suited for light riding.
On-site foster: $200/month
Delilah's Bronze Horse Angel is Marcie S!
River is a very handsome Tennessee Walker gelding standing at 16 hands with lots of trail experience. A very loving, soulful, and sensitive boy who deserves a special someone to love him back. He is currently in rehab for EPM, although not showing any symptoms. He was recently treated for Lymes as well and we can now happily say, his titers have come down and he is asymptomatic and being ridden and refreshed with groundwork weekly.
My Horse Angel Sponsor is Diane Hermann!

Currently being fostered on-site by 3 mom and daughter teams!
Goldie is a lovely 10 year old stocky Bay TB mare standing 16.2 hands. She has been on trails and has arena experience, ridden English and western. She is sweet, loving and very willing to please, loads nicely, great for farrier, vet and dentist. She is a little apprehensive about shots though. Barefoot, UTD on coggins, all vaccines, dentist and deworming. She has minor swelling in her left hind leg, mostly around the fetlock, from lymphangitis that requires minor maintenance. The vet says that consistent moderate exercise will help keep the swelling down and that wrapping her leg when it does swell above the fetlock will control the inflammation. Goldie would be a wonderful trail or equitation horse. Goldie is NOT able to jump and is not a good dressage candidate. Temperament 3 out of 10.

Goldie's Bronze Horse Angel is Sharon F!
Hi! My name is Dutiful Sun. I’m a registered quarter horse (Dude’s Rising Sun) but you can call me “D”. I’m a very handsome Palomino Gelding and I stand at 15.1H. I was born in 1988. My owner mom passed away and I will be spending my golden years at FHHR with my new people that love me. I’m an older man now and have some arthritis in my front left foot and I have trouble picking up my hind legs. I can still walk and trot some. I can no longer jump and canter and play gymkhana games like I used to in my younger days. I sure make a beautiful pasture ornament now and enjoy attention from my humans. My temperament is rated at a 1 and I know that means I’m a very good boy!
Not Available for Adoption
My Horse Angel Bronze Sponsors are Janet L and Diane H!
Dawson, born in 1994, is a 16hh Thoroughbred, came to us in 2015 when he was retired from a rigorous lesson and jumping program. Dawson has a wonderful temperament and has been a very willing partner in the Equine-Assisted Learning and educational programs at the rescue. He is a delight to ride, knows it all, has done it all. He requires an intermediate level rider as he can get strong at the canter. He can W/T/C. Due to his previous years as a lesson horse, he would be best suited to a non-jumping home. An occasional small fence is fine.
Adoption Fee: $250.
Currently being fostered on site by Jaylee C - Congratulations Jaylee!
These horses are looking for their forever home. Once they find the perfect match, spaces will open up for more horses to live at the rescue. If you are interested in meeting a specific horse, please contact us at email@example.com.
Note: Horses may be adopted out within an approximate 60 mile radius of Dunkirk, MD. Horses are herd animals and need their own kind to live with. Horses will not be adopted out to homes where they will be an only horse unless stated.
