John + Manny

by | Mar 2018 | Story

Breed Appendix Quarter Horse

Age 7

Sex Gelding

Color Gray

Height 15.1hh

My girlfriend who has been riding for over 20 years took me to the Lorain County Fair, where I hung out with horses for the first time and was hooked! After that, I knew I wanted a horse, but I wanted a rescue.

We found Manny on Facebook and went to go meet him. I knew right away that he was my Right Horse! He was rescued off of a feedlot by the lady I adopted him from. He is a 7-year-old Appendix Gelding. He has severe Ringbone from a previous injury, and whip scars all over him. Poor Manny had a terrible past, but not anymore! Now he is the most spoiled horse around! He can’t be ridden, so he is my companion horse. I do ground work with him, and we just hang out together. He even follows me without a lead line. I made him an Instagram account so people can follow his adventures. He is Manny The Brave Horse!

What #RightHorse means to me

Finding that horse who you have a special bond with. And saving the lives of horses!

Lindy + JoJo

JoJo is the right horse. And to think she would have taken the last trailer ride of her life, if it hadn’t been for Julie and her team doing what they do. I’m so thankful. Our barn is now full, and we are having fun camping, trail riding and making lots of memories.

Marissa + Nevero

We both felt like this was a sign from up above that Nevero was meant to be with me. I have used her in parades, drill team practice, trail rides and my “therapy” sessions when I’m having a bad day. Nevero has brought the joy of horses back to me that I thought I had lost.

Miranda + Blue Blue Sea

Blue Blue Sea lived more than seven years after that diagnosis and brought me some of the best years of my life. People who have heard his story tell me that there seemed something akin to destiny to it all, that the two of us were meant to be together.
