Roxy came into our rescue program on April 06, 2013. Roxy came from the Seminole County Sheriff's Office along with 62 other horses and 3 Llama's as a severe cruelty case. Seminole County investigated an animal cruelty case consisting of over 120 animals, where several carcasses were found. Sadly, for many horses, help came too late. We were able to assist Seminole County and save 63 horses and 3 Llama's from neglect. Roxy is a Beautiful, Sorrel/White, Paint, Mare. Roxy is estimated to be 20 years of age. Roxy is extremely emaciated with a body score of a 1. She is infested with internal/external parasites, has rain rot and is moderately anemic. She is super sweet and very smart. She loves attention and always easy to approach and catch. She loads in a trailer and stands for the farrier. Roxy has a long road of recovery ahead of her. We will update as she progresses. Please consider making a donation towards Roxy's Rehabilitation.
Update August 2014 Roxy is now seeking her forever, loving home. Roxy is still in foster care, but arrangements can be made for her to be seen with advance notice. Roxy is looking great and ready for a forever, loving family to call her own. Roxy is broke to ride and rides really good in any situation, however, she must be ridden by a light rider. Roxy had some tune up time with Trainer Jed Ward and his son Jax. She can't handle a heavy saddle and rider. We assume she has an old injury that makes her very uncomfortable with a large saddle/rider. As long as you ride with a smaller saddle, she is great for trail rides or even play days. She walks, trots, and lopes. She even picks up leads and has an amazing sliding stop. Her mouth is super soft and it takes very little pressure to turn, back and stop her. She prefers Children! She will always approach them first and is eager to be caught by a child. We certainly recommend a home with kids for Roxy. She has been ridden by several kids, bareback or with a light saddle, and she does great. We do however, recommend an experienced youth rider, as she isn't quite ready for a beginner. In a herd she is not a dominant mare and gets along with just about anyone. She rides (direct rein), leads, bathes, fly sprays, ties, loads (in anything), good with the farrier, stalls well, and has no bad habits. Per the vet she will require Senior feed to stay at weight because her back teeth are pretty worn, but she can eat hay and grass just fine. Roxy is a beautiful girl and deserves a wonderful home and family. Roxy's foster home put together this wonderful video to show you Roxy's rehabilitation process. Roxy's Journey: Roxy's Journey Roxy has a current negative coggins, up to date on vaccinations, deworming, teeth floating, and hoof maintenance. If you are interested in adopting this sweetheart, please submit an adoption application or call/email to schedule an appointment to come visit Roxy.
Roxy has been adopted to a wonderful family in Belle Plaine, Kansas. Roxy is going to be extremely well loved and spoiled rotten for the rest of her life with her foster family. We are so happy that Roxy has the forever, loving family that she deserves where she will receive the time, attention and love she needs.
