Beautiful "Cowboy" in search of a new home. Please contact 828-817-3508 if you are interested. He is a 7 year old, black, quarter horse gelding. He is registered but owner does not have papers. He is an extremely good looking horse, well put together with long, straight legs and nice head. He is in good body condition and his feet are in good condition. He is not broke to ride but seems very gentle and easy to be around. He has basically been a pet all his life.


No Longer Available. The owner of these 2 horses suddenly and unexpectedly passed away on Wednesday, September 14th in his home in Columbus, NC.  The owner does not have any family that can take the horses.  The grey Quarter Horse is a gelding named Patrick.  He is 31 years old and has an old injury to his right hind fetlock.  The bay Arabian is a gelding named Kinsdale.  He is 22 years old.  Both horses are in good condition and have been well cared for.  They are up to date on vaccines, dentals, and farrier work. The home must be approved by FERA (Foothills Equine Rescue Assistance) and the executor of the estate and must be a forever home.  The horses must stay together and the home needs to be in Polk County or one of the surrounding counties so they can be checked periodically by FERA. Please contact if you are interested in giving these 2 guys a forever home. Thank you.

Even if you're not quite ready to adopt, your donations whether financially, or time wise - as a volunteer, will go a very long way in providing much needed care and humane options for these and other horses in our community. Please consider signing up as a volunteer via the form below or donating a few dollars online via the DONATE button below. Your donations are tax deductible.

Success! Message received.
