  • White Bird Appaloosa Horse Rescue

The Year of the Appaloosa

We wish we meant this in a positive sense, but we've been just inundated with requests for help this year. For some reason, Appaloosas and their owners just seem to have had a run a bad luck!

Today, we are going to start with some Clearinghouse horses. As you may recall, these horses are not at the Rescue. They either belong to individuals who meet our criteria for urgent need, or have been rescued by organizations that are trying to find adopters for them. So please don’t contact us, but please do contact the owners through the information provided, if you think are the right home for them.

Bucky: What a cute little guy this is! Bucky is a 7yo, bay blanket Appy gelding who can be registered. He is not trained to ride, but he is handleable and friendly. He stands between 14.2 and 14.3 and weighs about 1200 lbs.

Breezy: This 2yo filly was sired by Bucky. She is a bay Appy x who is part grade mare. She stands around 14.1 and weighs about 1000 lbs. She is not trained, but is friendly and likes attention like Bucky.

Both of these horses are hardship situations and they owner must find homes for them. These horses are located in Virginia. If you think you can provide them, please contact Holly at:434 390 6912

Next, the Director of the Warren County Animal Control in Warrenton, NC is still seeking loving homes for some seized horses who deserve caring families.

The horses that are still available are for adoption are: E43, C4 and C5 for adoption. Correction! Other horses are available, also. So please take a look at the rest of them. It is vitally important that these horses find new homes. This is a rural shelter with limited funding and they cannot afford to continue caring for these horses. Information about the horse can be found in this attachment Adoption Gallery 12-2014-1.

Please contact: Elma Rae Green, Director, Warren County Animal Control, 142 Rafters Lane, Warrenton, NC 27589.Ph: 252-257-6137

This past week, we have been advised that Sundancer Farm Rescue in PA must close and is seeking safe homes for their horses, which include many Appaloosas, as well as some other animals. the complete listing can be found at this link: Again, remember that these horses are not at White Bird, so please contact Sundancer if you can provide a safe home for them.

This year has been an extraordinary one for White Bird and we still have many of the Sparky Project Horses available for adoption, as well as other horses who would love to find a home and family for Christmas. Many of our horses are listed on Petfinder: location=23922&animal=horse&primary_breed= You can also locate them by searching, horses for zip code 23922. Not all o our horses are listed on the site, so if you have a special horse wish, please contact us through the web site. We’d love to hear from you.

We have so much to be grateful for this past year and we could not have accomplished what we have without each and every one of you. You rock! We would like to wish our friends, donors, volunteers, supporters and followers a wonderful holiday season!
