Wild Horses Available for Adoption
Trained Horses For Adoption
Cash is an older horse that was found roaming south of Gallup. His owner said it was originally his grandfather's horse. Cash was relinquished to the McKinley County Humane Society. We think he is probably broke to ride, but a long time ago. Tenatively adopted. Link here
Hudson is a big stout horse. Okay, stocky and strong. Maybe even chubby. But he likes to play and he is nice to handle. There is a good chance he has been ridden in his younger days. Tenatively adopted. Link here.
The former band stallion of the horses gathered by the NM Livestock Board from Cabezon, now a shy gelding. He doesn't seem to have ever been trained, but he is branded. Gobi would be happiest to be adopted with Sahara. Link here.
Sahara is just a pony of 13.2 hands. We think she must have been trained at some time in her life because she seems to know stuff. She wears the same brand as Gobi. She is highly food motivated.Link here.
Trained Burros for Adoption
Chansey is the shy one of the herd. 12 hh She currently loves being scratched on the left side of her body, but is too nervous to have people stand on the right. This will change, but she is going to need some time. Link here.
Rosalia is a tiny roan girl with a can-do temperament. She tends to go her own way, so it took her a while to warm up to humans, but now she is a trusting friend. 10.2hh Tenatively adopted. Link here.
Bellsprout was briefly with an adopter who realized he did not have the capacity to care for the animals. She is back. She is super friendly, calm about horses, and pretty old.
Jerome runs to get petted when he sees us coming. He loves people and can only go to a home where people will spend time with this old fellow.

Animals adopted to homes in states other than New Mexico require a veterinary health inspection. The cost of this is generally around $50 per animal. We will take the animal to the vet, but this charge must be paid by the out-of-state adopter as a deposit on the delivery.
