Not Much Time… Chip FOUND a Home.


Thanks to the coverage we get from our web site, plus the sharing ability on facebook, Chip has found his new forever home.  Thank you everyone who contacted Cynthia, and those of you who cross-posted and shared Chip’s information.  It really does take a village to do rescue, and an electronic one is just as effective.



We’ll need to move quickly on this one, folks  because time is short,  so if anyone out there would like to add a little color in their pasture, here he is!  This horse is sound and trained, just needs a tune up. Please remember that he is not in the care of the Rescue, so you’ll want to contact his helper at the number and email below. Thank you, Cynthia, for caring about him.


This 14-hand gelding needs to find a refuge, as the current owner is ready and willing to put him down. He is 20 ish but goes like a youngster,  has always been sound, recently shod and has spring vaccinations. He is an easy keeper and personality plus. BUT he has too much pull on the bit to be an enjoyable ride for his older caregiver. (White Bird note:  A candidate for a bitless bridle?) Over the years they just have accumulated too many issues to be good for each other any longer.  She has given up on him; I am trying to find him a better outcome. Chip is located in Lexington, VA.

Deadline for Finding a Home: 04/30/2013

Please contact:  Cynthia Ruark

    You can try contacting Middleburg Humane Foundation, they may or may not take him in. Their number is (540) 364-3272, this is the best I can do, if I was rich I would take them all

    Good news! Chip has found a new home! Thank you to everyone who called and inquired about him.
    There are so many good horse folks out there who were willing to open up their hearts and homes to this guy.I could not have done this so quickly without White Bird’s help by posting on their facebook page. Thank you over and over! Cynthia
