Nitro came into our rescue program on January 14, 2015. Nitro came from the Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office along with 11 other horses as an abandonment case. Sadly, help came too late for 2 other horses. We lost a 6 month old foal 3 days after she arrived and we found 1 dead on the property. Nitro is a Beautiful, Bay, Quarter Horse, Mare. Nitro is estimated to be 9 years of age. Nitro is body score of a 3. She is infested with internal/external parasites, has rain rot and is mildly anemic. Nitro is covered in ticks and possibly pregnant. Nitro is a sweet girl, but very scared. Nitro, along with the 11 other horses, haven't experienced much hands on attention. Most are not halter broke or broke to lead, but learning. It is going to take some time and patience and this beautiful herd will learn to accept love and attention. It clear that no human has been there for them in the past, and they don't understand that we are here to help. We will update as Nitro improves. Please consider making a donation towards Nitro's Rehabilitation.
Update October 2015 Nitro is now seeking her forever, loving home to call her own. Nitro has a lot of potential and needs a family that is willing to spend a lot of time with her and give her a lot of attention. Nitro was turned out on pasture and received nearly little to no contact with humans. She was not halter broke when she arrived in our program in January. She is very aloof and unsure of humans. With some consistency, time, attention and training, she will make someone an excellent horse. She is a beautiful girl! Nitro has a current negative coggins, up to date on vaccinations, deworming, teeth floating and hoof maintenance. If you are interested in giving this sweet girl the forever, loving home she deserves, please submit an adoption application or call/email to schedule an appointment to come visit Nitro.
