Horses Available for Adoption
Grace is a delightful and charming Quarter Horse (or QH cross). Grace was born on September 1, 2016 to a mare who came to us from the Nottoway County seizure. Since the beginning she has adored people and thrived on attention. Grace is very smart and willing and is going to make someone an amazing horse.
Grace's adoption fee is $400.
Sawyer is available for adoption as a companion.
If you need more personality in your pasture this is your horse! Sawyer is an approximately 16 year old, 15.1 hand Arab cross who unfortunately does not stay sound under saddle. She is goofy and sweet and adored by everyone who meets her. She is an easy keeper.
Sawyer's adoption fee is $100.
Ginger is a 20+ year old survivor of the Peaceable Farm case. She is not able to be ridden, but she is an easy keeper and would make a great companion!
Ginger's adoption fee is $100.
Aphrodite is a lovely Quarter Horse mare who has been a brood mare her entire life. She is in her mid-20s. She is now looking for a quiet field to retire in. She does have some vision issues but gets around quite well. We do keep a fly mask on her to keep her more comfortable.
Aphrodite's adoption fee is $100.
Donahue is a 15.3 hand, 11 year old Thoroughbred gelding. He has been started under saddle (walk/trot/canter) but is still green. He has been out on trail rides and did very well, but does need a trail buddy.
Donahue's adoption fee is $750.
These horses are our permanent residents. They are the horse who, due to health issues, age, etc. we feel are not suitable for adoption and need a nice peaceful retirement at Hope's Legacy. Please consider sponsoring one (or more!) of these wonderful horses. Monthly sponsorships start as low as $10 a month. Expenses for these horses usually run about $200 a month.
Van, a 35 year old Appendix Quarter horse gelding, was a beginner lesson horse for 25 years. After his retirement, the farm owner was planning to send him to auction. A family member stepped in and brought Van to us instead. Van has few teeth left and is unable to eat hay. He gets large amounts of soaked feed. This feisty guy is quite the character and a big favorite of everyone who meets him. Thank you to Paula Eager for your generous sponsorship and loving care of Van!
DONKEY AND DOLLY
Donkey is an elderly survivor of the Peaceable Farm case from October 2015. He will be living out his life as a mascot and ambassador for Hope's Legacy. This small, yet very opinionated charmer loves meeting new people. Dolly came to Hope's Legacy from the Virginia Donkey Rescue to be Donkey's companion. He likes horses, but they're just not the same as having his very own donkey friend who never leaves him. Please consider sponsoring Donkey and Dolly with a monthly donation.
Cindy is a 20+ year old Peaceable Farm survivor. Due to some behavioral issues she was not suitable for adoption, however she is thriving, living out her days with lots of green grass and her new friends Oz and Van.
Thank you to Parke Capshaw and Paula Eager for your loving sponsorship of Cindy!
Arthur is a 30+ year old gelding with navicular. He was surrendered to Hope's Legacy by an owner who loved him dearly but was no longer able to care for him due to financial issues.
Please consider sponsoring our beloved Arthur.
GENTLEMAN AND DAKOTA
Gentleman is a 19 or 20 year old Peaceable Farm survivor. Change stresses him out quite a bit so we made the decision to let him spend the rest of his years hanging out at one of our foster homes. He has become best friends with Dakota and is loving getting to hang out and be a horse again.
Dakota is a handsome Saddlebred cross who is blind in one eye. He loves hanging out with his buddy Gentleman, they even share a stall! Dakota came to us thanks to a good samaritan who saw him starving in a field. Thank you Melody and Gregg for your loving sponsorship of Gentleman and Dakota!
Oz came to us as an owner surrender who was no longer able to care for him. He was adopted to a wonderful home but then sadly had to be returned to the rescue. Now he lives out his days with his friends Van and Cindy.
Thank you to Parke Capshaw and Tiverton Farm for your generous sponsorship of Oz!
Meet Amber Three. She came to Hope's Legacy from Orange County Animal Control in the early spring of 2015. It is hard to see how thin she truly was when she arrived because of her thick winter coat, but she was very thin and completely covered in lice. Several good medicated baths, lots of food and even more love turned Amber into the princess she is today.
On Christmas of 2015 Amber found her people when she was adopted by the Thomas Family. They volunteer with Hope's Legacy and fell in love with her. Amber is their daughter Taylor's first horse, together they have galloped through fields, competed in the show ring and at hunter paces and spent countless hours just enjoying one another's company.
