The Horses at Ever After Mustang Rescue – Available for Adoption
Cinnamon, 22 year old chestnut mare with history of founder. Gentle, friendly girl that would be a great companion horse or good for light riding. Also a candidate for “In House Adoption”.
Waiting for adoption

Magic, an 8 year old bay gelding. 14 hands. Progressing well with ground training. On a very happy note: He has been chosen by a kind, patient, knowledgeable person for his forever home. They are working together and with trainer prior to moving to his new home late spring.
Grace, a 24 year old black mare, was found at the Camelot auction by a N.J. rescue, who outbid the “killer buyers” to save her and her unborn foal. Only later did they realize she was a mustang and shortly after she foaled they asked us to take them, gentle and train mom and find them both a good home. This 15H mare is now in a regular training program and doing very well with groundwork. She is very intelligent and responsive and would welcome a human partner who has the experience and time to continue her training.

Long-Term Residents – Available for Sponsorship
We named her Star when she arrived here in Dec. 2002. She was brought here by kind adopters who could not keep her. Although she had only minimal handling she was trusting and in excellent shape. Her color is light Bay with a white star. She is approx 14.3-15 hands. She had been captured in the Calico Mountains Herd Management Area, near Gerlach, NV. on Dec.18, 2000 at 2 years old. Now at 23 years she still has many years to give to a special person who can appreciate her kind, gentle nature. Are you her person?

I am a 27 year old mare. My soft brown eyes are kind and gentle, although I am still a little distrustful. I am a beautiful liver chestnut with a flaxen tail and mane. I can lift my feet for the blacksmith and tolerate saddling, however my physical abilities are limited due to allergies and respiratory problems.

Charlotte is a 32 year old, big boned 15h bay mare, came to the rescue at the age of 17, had never been handled but has learned to trust and love humans and can be groomed and led. She has been ridden and we think she likes it! She is very social and could be your best friend as well as a great companion horse.

Cheyenne is a 23 year old bay mare with a real presence. She was captured September 19th, 2000 in the Delamar Mountains of Nevada. Although very distrusting and fearful, she is very sweet and kind.

Destiny (22 year old) arrived here Feb. 17, 2009 from a dealer in Maine. She was frightened and aggressive, but settled in well with the other horses. Her freeze brand revealed her history: foaled in 1998 in the Monte Cristo HMA. She was gathered as a yearling on 1-26-99 and adopted a few months later on 5-22-99. The next 10 years are lost to us . Only Destiny knows what her life was like. We only see her at present as fearful and distrusting, although there are moments of curiosity and a desire to be nearer to us. She is now accepting of us and allowing petting and light grooming. We will continue to work with her to further her training and trust in humans.

Jazz is a handsome 21 year old gelding born in captivity. His sire being a mustang and his mother a POA, he definitely shows the best of both breeds. His winter coat is pure white with black mottling around his mouth and nose, but shedding out reveals large black spots on the skin surface of his chest and sides. Truly unique. At 14 hands his mustang heritage reveals a stocky, solid body, strong durable legs and great hooves. It was very hard for us to accept that we were seeing changes in him. Our veterinarian has confirmed that Jazz is now totally blind.
In-house adopter: Dr. Sarah Denning-Bolle
Grant, 25 yrs old, was born in captivity from a mustang mare (Charlotte) and a burro on August 13, 1996 in New York. He was brought to this rescue along with his mother; neither having had any previous handling. Mom did very well with training. After some serious attempts to train Grant, he decided to remain independent. Not all of us ever fit in “the box” we’re given. So it is with Grant. He lives happily here, providing assistance to Jazz. He has become Jazz’ eyes and protector.

Ginger, 29 yrs old, got the attention of a whole city when she required surgery for fractured bones in her knee. The entire community came together to finance necessary surgery and follow-up care. Her recovery is complete and although pain free, she is left with a slight limp. Thus, she will require lifetime care here.

Drifter is a life long resident. He came to the rescue with a past shoulder injury that causes him to be 3 legged lame. After consulting with a vet it is his belief that Drifter is not in any major discomfort. We continue to work along side the vet with routine care. Things like getting his feet trimmed takes more resources than most horses.
In-house adopter: Anita Coupe
Justin is a life long resident. He came to us as a very guarded and reactive 28 year old. He clearly had a very traumatic life. Our goal for him is to just give him a safe place to live out his remaining years.

Remington has been with us almost 3 years. He was a bold, willful and unpredictable horse, needing consistent handling and training. As his training progressed, he was taken to venues to introduce the public to wild horses. He had found his niche. At present he has appeared at retirement homes, allowing wheelchairs by his side, and at day care centers where he has given pony rides to the children. He even appeared at the gala event at the Seaside Trolley Museum as the Headless Horseman. Remington will help us bring awareness of the thousands of wild horses needing a chance at a home and a job.

BraveHeart, now 21 yrs old, was foaled on March 30, 1997, in captivity at the Litchfield Corrals in Lassen, CA. He was shipped to Cross Plains, TN for adoption on September 15, 1998 where he was determined blind. He was adopted and then brought to Ever After Mustang Rescue, for possible lifetime care. Braveheart has since grown into a handsome 16 hand blue roan that our vet does not believe is blind. His bold and strong personality requires consistent and firm care along with plenty of love. He now serves as an ambassador, where you can see him at many events.
