Please help them be rescued....
The traditional rescue that we do helps horses
from abuse, neglect, auction, unfit for sale horses, owner surrender
(emergency), consignment horses looking for new homes and zero fee listings
to assist owners to place horses rather than send their horses to the
auctions or kill pens. We help them, we quarantine them, we work with them
to prepare them for their new homes but we are not able to fulfill the
special needs that only “their family” can supply. Only you can do that.
have been abused, neglected, sent to auction, slaughter bound,
starved and ultimately betrayed. Help restore our faith in humanity.
www.ac4h.com has been been the
voice for the hopeless for over a decade. We can't do this
without you and neither can they. Please help with your life changing financial gift or by helping them
find a home.
It's wonderful to know that they are safe and in loving homes read some of the success stories of horses that received "another chance".

*Reg. QH mare foaled 2007 Sweet Snazy Tinker
#4960370 out of Leo's Snazzy Tinker
and Sweet Glo Jr. which goes back to Two Eyed Jack take a look at her
more pictures page.
Snazzy was rescued as a yearling from a killer sale where mini's and young horses frequently ship to slaughter. She was slaughter bound and not people friendly or halter broke. She has a sway back which is a genetic problem. She is friendly, leads, loads, ties, picks up her feet and could be a companion or a driving prospect. We have done stomach exercises with her touch her belly and she arches her back but even these exercises are not going to correct the issue. She needs to be a companion or be taught possibly to drive for pleasure.
Bo - Bay quarter horse approx 15 hands 15 yr old extremely well broke (Western) will go from standstill to canter, responds to cue's instantly and without hesitation he is a lot of fun with get up and go yet completely sensible and with a been there done that I will take care of you attitude. Excellent ground manners, gets along well with others. He does have a navicular growth its actually not the normal navicular its a bone growth off the navicular that looks like a fish hook - he can be used for light riding for experienced rider best home for him would be as a companion.
