Horses on this page are available for adoption as companion horses only. They cannot be ridden for a variety of reasons. Some are older and have spent their lives in the service of their humans. Others have medical conditions that don't allow them to be ridden. If you can offer one of these deserving horses a home please contact FCER at email@example.com
Cindy is a 17 year old ex-broodmare. She was used in the PMU (pregnant mare urine) industry to collect urine to be transformed into pills for women seeking Hormone Replacement Therapy. Cindy was not treated well and retains her distrust of human intentions. With care and time she will halter, lead, load and stand for the farrier. But first her trust will have to be earned. Cindy is NOT a riding horse. The right home for her would be with an experienced horse person willing to develop a relationship with Cindy so the two can enjoy doing Groundwork Games. Cindy has much to teach the right person!
Adopotion Fee for Cindy is $200

Regalo came to FCER when his owner abandoned him and 5 other horses they had been using to breed mustangs. Regalo was one of the 2 stallions they used. He is 22 years old and is halter trained. Regalo has adapted very well to life as a gelding.

Beau is a 4 year old gelding from the Gallup area. He is not rideable due to extensive damage to both hind legs from what appears to be wire. It looks like the wire had wrapped around both hind legs and the injuries were not treated. Because of that Beau doesn't have full use of the tendons and is handicapped. Beau has also undergone surgery to his nasal cavity on the right side on his face. This surgery was successful in stopping the constant drainage we were seeing from his right nostril. This was probably due to the halter that was too small and imbedded itself in his face. You can see the indentation in the photo. He is a very smart horse, and wants to be friend with people. As Beau was formally a wild horse, he will need a patient person to bond with.
Adoption Fee for Beau is $250
