Mountain Valley Horse Rescue helps every horse that we can, one horse at a time, and that includes horses who are not here at our ranch but still in need of a home. Below is a partial list of horses MVHR has been contacted about that are in need of homes, with the contact person for each horse listed. If you don't see what you're looking for, please contact MVHR for information about others we may know about that could be your new member of the family!
 
PEPPER  He is a 24 year old gelding Arabian. We have had him for 6-7 years. I ride him about once a week, he does great riding with a western saddle and I also ride him bareback. He has a very sweet disposition and temperament and sometimes spooks with gusts of wind. He has recently seen the farrier and vet for a teeth floating (he stands well and behaves for both). He has few posterior teeth left (anterior are all intact and healthy) and is on a mash regimen 1-2x a day of beet pellets, rice brain, alfalfa pellets and senior grain with canola oil soaked in hot water. He is still able to eat hay and alfalfa flakes that he has 24/7 access to and also likes to graze on grass. We are looking for a home with large pasture for him to graze on and even someone with other horses for him to be around. We want him to go to a good home where they can take care of his needs. We will be giving away almost everything needed with him; any feed we have, water tank, halter, lead ropes, grooming tools,winter coat etc. We have a neighbor who's dog likes to chase and nip at him and we are unable to get this resolved and don't want him going through that anymore. Our winters are sometimes brutal and even though he has a shelter they are tough for him to go through. He does great around people and kids, he has never bitten,kicked or bucked with us. I enjoy riding him as he listens well and is a smooth ride. He is registered and I have his papers.  Contact Nikki for more information at nburley@hotmail.com

LOKI  He is a 14.2 hand ,18 year old Columbian Paso Fino bay gelding with a wonderful personality, no vices, good health, a little fat right now. Extremely smooth,has 5 easy gaits, very sure-footed on the trail, does not spook on the trail either.Has never reared,kicked,bitten.My doc says no more barn dust for me (I am 85) so no more riding.

HOLLYWOOD  Eleven year old registered buckskin, was broke to ride but haven't ridden in 3 years. Has one knee that has arthritis, will only flex about half way. Was left a stud until 4 years old. Has bucked me off a few times but mostly because he is herd bound to one of my mares. He was at a trainer for one month and never bucked for her. The knee doesn't seem to bother him. He does not limp or hold it up. He does not like his feet handled. I can get the front done with a bucket of oats but the back I can't. Just to be around, he is in your pocket, very curious horse so always checks out what you are doing. So friendly he gets in the way sometime. Contact Wally for more information at glassdwg@aol.com
