Spotsylvania, Virginia's Equine Assisted Living Facility, where the Oldies are golden and Geezers rule. If you are owned by a senior horse, join us to celebrate the wisdom and humor of elder equine. Tips for caring for older horses also discussed. (More information at www.equineelders.org)
(This horse is being place by a private owner and is not a resident of, nor affiliated with, Traveller's Rest Equine Elders Sanctuary.)
20+ year Quarter Horse mare. Sound and healthy, no special needs other than being grained twice a day (senior and sweet feet). Leads, trailers, very timid with people. We feel she's someone's old range broodmare and it will take a lot of time and patience to gain her trust. She's made many improvements here, but is still not a people loving mare. She would however make an excellent companion horse or lawn ornament. Were she a "kid safe pet" type horse I'm sure she would have found a home by now, but she's a bit of a wilder old lady. Still deserves a good home! No adoption fee but references requested. Located in central MN. (218) 746-4161, firstname.lastname@example.org

Regular visitors to Traveller's Rest may remember that one of our residents, 40-year-old Jeb, lost his appetite for many many weeks during the summer and was losing weight. Offering different feeds produced no results. Vet exams and blood tests revealed no obvious cause. We were at a loss as to what to do next. And then...............

It is obvious that Rienzi needs to gain more than a few pounds. What is not obvious, at first glance, is his dental condition. Rienzi's "underbite," sometimes called "monkey mouth," is probably congenital. He's dealt with it his entire life. In recent years, however, it is likely that the abnormality was too much too handle on top of the uneven wear patterns so common in elder equine teeth. The way Rienzi's teeth wore literally made is impossible for him to move his jaws in a normal chewing pattern.
