Deacon   $750
18 yr old, 15h, blk gaited gelding. I was asked to help this horse out and I have. I've been on the trails with the horse and he is a wonderful trail horse, quiet, easy to mount, no spook..... Super smooth and easy to ride! The gentleman that asked for help stated that his 7 year old grand daughter rode him often. The old owner also stated that his farrier claims he has tender soles and would do better on rough terrain with pads. He is up to date on everything. Rode him bareback after being turned out all winter. No issues just a gentle horse looking for his new home.

update:  4/29 Deacon got front shoes on.  His price went up $50

Hi Guys,
I found this site awhile ago and have been lurking. Decided a few days ago to sign up. I could not find a place to post newbee questions so I guess this is as good a place as any to jump in   Smile  Before I go into much about myself I will wait to see if you have other means for me to do so. However I will mention that my husband & I are selling our house in Alaska and moving BACK to Washington. If all goes well we found a nice place off of HWY 12 with lots of room for horses! If not this one we have a couple others in mind with pretty much the same set up. At this time I'm not sure how much or what kind of support I can offer but I am head over heels in love with what you are trying to accomplish!

Deacon & Boogie: I can't make any kind of offer on these guys at this time due to the move, but I was wondering do the horses on this list get moved to the feed lot list if they don't sell right away? How does this all work? Can a person go to the feed lot to see & perhaps handle or ride the horse of interest?

Well you can see I have a ton of questions and I'm not sure this is the place to ask them. I am really interested not only with these two horses but the over all program. Please let me know. Thanks! Seahorse

Welcome Seahorse!!
The 2 horses you speak of (Deacon and Badger?  - not sure who Boogie is) will NEVER go to the feedlot.  They are personal 'saves' by our fearless and big hearted leader Sam.  She has them at her personal home and will hold them as long as it takes to get them a great home.

Basically we list horses that are on a feedlot outside of Yakima WA.  When you are interested in a specific horse, the best thing to do is call Sam.  509-952-3866.  She can give you details and answer questions regarding the horse that the rest of us can't - because she is the one who does the feedlot evaluations.  The rest of us live around the state and manage this online bulletin board and the FaceBook page, we don't actually get to touch the horses - unless (or until) one of us brings one home (which we have all done).  Smile

Due to insurance, horses can not be ridden at the feedlot by anyone who has not been approved by the feedlot (and property) owner.  They certainly CAN be handled, but again, speak with Sam.

If you have general questions you can post them under General Chat and one of us would be more than happy to answer them.

How exciting to be looking at a new place!  Good luck!!!!

Melis, Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. Yea I found the general Chat shortly after I made this last post. (Don't know why I didn't see it before) I will leave my general questions/comments there =)

Boogie is listed under the ~Safe~ category, 21 listings down. He is listed as an 18yr old Reg QH. He is also black and is almost identical to Deacon! At first I thought they were the same horse, (I noticed that sometimes the horses get renamed) but in doing a side by side look, the face marking are considerably different.

I don't know how long it will take for us to get moved back down to Washington, and of course it is much more important that these guys find a good, safe, forever home than to sit around waiting for me. However, God works in mysterious ways. If it was meant to be, the way will be reviled. BTW looks like we will be making an offer on the Hwy 12 place. The 6 acres next to it are for sale too and we are in the proses of getting more info on that as well. If we get both that would be 13 acres of prime horse property! Can't wait  =)

Ahh.... THAT Boogie.  Smile

"Safe" horses are just that, Safe.  They've already found their new homes and we keep them on the bb so we can update information if it becomes available.  Some of the people who take horses off of the feedlot occasionally let us know how things are going after the fact and it's nice to be able to put up information for others to read.  Smile

p.s.
We learned early on that when dealing with feedlot horses and slaughter truck deadlines that we need to respond FAST to every and all questions.  Lives have been saved because of a quick response.... now it's just a habit.  Smile
