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. Our new caregivers are keeping an eye on me so Roxie will put on more weight.

Junior


Junior is a 20ish adorable 13h Welsh pony.  He came to us as an owner surrender in 2015 with Romeo (below).  Junior is a fun push-button pony who has extensive show experience.  He suffers from PPID and chronic founder so must be kept off grass.  He can be ridden lightly by a lighter rider if his feet are feeling okay.   Junior knows natural horsemanship.  He also knows his manners and will mind them unless he suspects he is dealing with an inexperienced handler.  He is very much loved at FHHR and is very smart!  Junior is available for adoption. 

Adoption Fee: $150 - Negotiable to the right home.
Available for on site foster ($200/month) or off site foster (no fee).

Brocca

Brocca is a 30+ yo, Standardbred gelding, standing 16 hands. He was pulled from an auction in 2008. He leads, ties, and stands for the vet and farrier. He has Cushings Disease and will need to be treated with medication for the remainder of his life. He was recently diagnosed with EPM, so he will live in retirement with us until he tells us it's time for him to cross the rainbow bridge. Once you know him, you'll see a big, sweet guy under a "grumpy old man" exterior.  For his age, Brocca still has quite a pep in his step. 

Not Available for Adoption.

Tiny Timmy


Hi! My name is Timmy. Pretty cute name for a girl, huh? I am a Dark Bay Thoroughbred, 11 years old, 14.2H Mare. I am registered with the Jockey Club as Tiny Timmy. I am a surviving twin with orthopedic complications from being crushed and malpositioned in the womb. I cannot be ridden and I have difficulty moving and raising my feet. I’m in pretty good shape and my humans tell me I am as sweet as can be. I have to take lots of medications to keep me comfortable. My owner mom passed away, so I will be spending the rest of my days with FHHR to be well cared for.

Romeo

Romeo is a very handsome 11 yo Welsh Cross gelding standing at 14.3 hands. He is an owner surrender that came to us in 2015 with Junior (above).  Romeo has a genetic degenerative suspensory disease.  This disease is stable and light regular exercise by a lighter rider would be good for Romeo.  Romeo is well trained under saddle, stands still at the mounting block, and is a lot of fun to be around.  He is a very sweet boy who is still looking for his home!




Dutiful Sun


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 28 year old Palomino, Gelding and I stand at 15.1H. 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!

Dawson 

Dawson, a 16hh, 26 yo, Thoroughbred, a former lesson horse that 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 wonderful new partner in the Equine-Assisted Learning and educational programs at the rescue. He is terribly fun to ride, knows it all, has done it all.  He requires an intermediate level rider as he can get strong at the canter and throw an occasional light buck at times. 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.  He requires weight builder and hoof supplements but is otherwise very healthy!
