Here are the fourteen Pegasus horses awaiting your adoption today!
When you are ready to apply to adopt a particular horse, please follow the instructions at the bottom of this page. Thank you!
Aquaman is the father of Tommy. Aquaman will usually be found in close proximity and behind the geldings’ herd leader Leonardo. He is 14 years old and proving to be a good student and teacher in Pegasus’ Horse Interaction Program.
Belle is low in the herd pecking order and often stands on the periphery of the herd. She likes to be with people and tries very hard to please. She loves being scratched on the underside of her neck but can also be a bit moody when she is in season.
Daughter of Joy, Eva is now 3 years old. She is the oldest of the foals, born just after the herd was rescued. She is docile and gentle. Eva enjoys galloping around the paddock at full speed and loves the attention of anyone who is visiting in her paddock.
Lady Avalon is a confident horse and is the herd leader in our paddock of older mares. She is a benevolent leader, often checking in on grandmother Glorious when she is not feeling well.
20 year old Neptune is the son of Glorious. After being kept isolated in a small enclosure for many years for breeding purposes before the herd was rescued by Pegasus, Neptune now enjoys the company of his best friend Dalimondo and the other geldings for the first time in his life. He likes to spend time watching the mares over the fence and he is slowly learning to overcome a deep-seated distrust of humans.
Nikaya has made great strides since first being rescued. Once quite aloof and flighty, she is now very curious toward humans. When rescued, Nikaya would not stand for being approached or touched from the rear. She is now quite comfortable being touched all over–even on her backside.
Shianti is a flea-bitten grey mare who is confident and enjoys interacting with people.
Tommy is Aquaman’s 10 year old son. He is shy and timid but tries his best to please. Tommy most often stays directly behind his father, Aquaman, reflecting his place in the pecking order in the geldings’ paddock. Ironically, he often steps out of his place in the pecking order and challenges the geldings’ herd leader, Leonardo, most often right as the geldings are first being fed! Apparently, food is his achilles’ heel–so to speak!
15 year old Daemon has very rare ‘bloody shoulder’ marks on either side of his body. According to Bedouin legend, this is the sign of a brave horse that has carried his mortally wounded warrior back home from the battlefield. Daemon is a friendly and confident horse.
Jasmine is a beautiful flea-bitten grey mare. She was initially slow to heal and was one of the most flighty of the mares. Now, she dutifully halters and leads when approached with calm and loving confidence.
16 year old Joy is the mother of Eva. Joy has a calm nature. She is a clever mare, always waiting for the last feeder to be filled with hay so she has it all to herself.
10 year old Leonardo is a very handsome horse and he knows it! He is a dark dapple grey color who may eventually turn completely white. He is the herd leader in the geldings’ paddock and a very bold and confident horse; somewhat of a “bad boy.” Thus, Leonardo requires special handling by experienced equine handlers.
16 year old Ruby is a lovely looking bay mare. She is the herd leader in the younger mares’ paddock but leads in a benevolent manner.
Valenti’s Star was born December 20, 2008 — the first of the foals to be born at our facility located at the Valenti Ranch in Rancho Santa Fe, California. Valenti’s Star is bay colored with a small white star. She is confident and friendly but a bit flighty–very sensitive to sounds and quick movement.
