This is Paisley. She came into GSH Iowa a few weeks ago and we haven't had a chance to introduce her yet! She is a 22 year old halflinger/paint cross pony looking for a retirement home under our Pasture Pals program. She has good ground manners, loves to be groomed, and has been used for lead line before. There are reports of bucking which is why she ended up in the rescue, however we are hoping to rule out saddle fit and back pain and see what's going on. At 22, though, her training is a low priority so she'd love a companion home. She's about 13.3hh tall.

Our Pasture Pals program is a long-term, hopefully lifetime, foster program. Horses placed under this program follow most of the same guidelines of our adoptions, but are placed without an adoption fee. Because it's a foster program, your expenses can be deductible, and if for any reason you can't keep the horse, she must be returned to GSH and can't be sold for any reason. This is currently not a sponsored foster program, however GSH will help cover up to $200 of final expenses when the time comes, unless the foster home is willing to donate that as well.
