We currently have several horses in our rescue program.
Horses In Our Rescue Program:
UPDATE ON TAWNEE & GRACE
Tawnee and Grace are retiring to a quaint little barn run by Sharon Dillon in Ottsville PA along with her two older horses. As other horses go through our programs and eventually retire, we hope this can be a great temporary, or even permanent, safe landing space for them. They will have their own cushy stalls, an ample dry lot, and a couple grassy fields! Tawnee and Grace are still available for adoption while they reside at "Royce's Rescue #2". Donations would be greatly appreciated as we get the barn up and running! Right now we are in need of cash donations, fly spray, and Swat fly repellant.
Teddy is a thoroughbred with the longest legs. He loves his field-mates and a good grooming. Teddy is a wonderful teacher for all riding levels!
Noble is one of the horses in our rescue program, he did not do well at the race track so he came to us. He was adopted and came back to us three times due to no fault of his own. He is a 19 year old thoroughbred gelding, standing 16.1. He is loved by everyone and has turned out to be one of our best lesson horses!
Andy is 13 years old and is doing exceptionally well in our lesson program. His sweet nature and willingness to learn make him one of the favorites here. Everyone calls him the Labrador of the barn since he is always the first one to meet you at the gate!
Banner is a sweet 6 year old OTTB who learns quickly and enjoys being in our program. He also enjoys going to shows and showing off his athleticism! He has the goofiest personality.
Kaia is a 19 year old sweet little Arabian who would stand on the cross ties for hours completely surrounded by children grooming her. She has been a wonderful addition to our program and enjoys toting around all levels of riders.
Lily came to us in 2017 as a petrified little girl; she would not let the kids catch her or ride her for almost 3 years! She's grown into the perfect lesson, camp, and show pony. You will likely find her to be the most spoiled member of our program. The children absolutely love her and she is famed for being the only pony that LOVES to work. She is 13 years old.
Tawnee is a beautiful Arabian mare looking for a person to call her own. When she first came to us in 2017, she was emaciated, nameless, and clearly afraid of everyone and everything. She has blossomed into a quirky and loving girl, who enjoys lazily strolling around her pasture, munching on carrots, and getting a good grooming. At first, Tawnee may come across as nervous and cautious around new people, but once she trusts “her person” she will do anything for them. She is retired and offered as a pasture mate only. Tawnee is in her mid-teens and 15 hands tall.
Grace is a beautiful 21-year-old 15.2 hand thoroughbred mare with a stocky build. She has worked her way through the training program at Royce’s Rescue. She is now ready for retirement and we are looking for a home where she can be a great pasturemate. She is very gentle, laid-back, and will stand all day to be groomed.
-Taylor's wish came true when her parents bought Rhythm for her 12th birthday. They are a wonderful pair with a beautiful road ahead of them!
-Kylee & Gabby have a new family member. Niko has just come into their lives and they are busy spoiling him with everything he needs!
Paladin was found in a bad situation until Leigh Berman with Two Bit Farm rescued him. Paladin is a well-mannered and kind 9 year old Hanoverian stallion. With the help of Dr. Joanne Vecchione and Dr. Laurie Cameron, Paladin is now gelded and up to date on vaccines. He has joined the Royce’s Rescue family where he will recover and brush up on his under-saddle skills.
Our beautiful, sweet Lavk has been adopted by Najeedah who has spent countless hours rehabbing her to make her the wonderful horse she is today. We are so happy that Lavk has found her person and Najeedah is so happy to have the opportunity to adopt her.
Fiona is a 16-year-old thoroughbred. She is a very sweet mare who is working hard in our lesson program.
We can't wait to see what this special girl can do!
FIONA IS ADOPTED!
Our rescue horse Fiona was adopted today by Olivia who has ridden with us at Sommerfield for many years and has been in love with Fiona for a long time. Olivia will keep Fiona here with us at Sommerfield Stables and continue her training. We are very happy for them!
