We have named her Ariel. She is a big 16.2 hd bay mare around 9 years old. She may be pregnant. After she settles in we shall have the vet out to check. She stood at the pen for weeks and contracted strangles while there. She is in quarantine as we do with all new animals. Strangles is very contagious so we must ensure she is still not contagious.
We saw this cute 12 year old pony while getting the 6 broncs onto their trailer. She is a cutie. Rides nicely. More Buttercup in the future.
Joy has been adopted by the Shipskys.

Rocky's Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation is a 501c3 non-profit horse rescue ( EIN# 46-5656223) located in Thurmont, Maryland. It is run and cared for with a 100% volunteer staff. We rescue equines from all over the United States to give horses, donkeys, and mules a soft place to land after being abused, neglected, or thrown away at an auction to the highest bidder. We also assist in helping horse owners find a new home for their horse if we are unable to take them in to the rescue.
Our goal as a rescue is to rescue , evaluate , rehabilitate , and find them forever homes. This process can be easy or difficult depending on the needs of the animal rescued. Many of our equines are adopted out to live their lives happy in their forever home. However, some of the equines we rescue can't be homed and these equines will live out their lives at our Sanctuary. Most of our horses, donkeys, and mules can be found on the "Our Horses" tab above.
