October 16, 2013: The day you have been waiting for! Ahote is now available for adoption. This beautiful gelding is full of color and personality. He is a little shorter and will need an experienced hand to show him the way. What a payoff! A strong, young beautiful friend to add to your family.
October 3, 2013: Ahote was gelded today! He is doing well.
Ahote is a black and white paint horse rescued in cooperation with the Greater Akron Humane Society. Ahote was rescued with an elderly mare we named Paix, who sadly was euthanized due to her condition and quality of life. Both were kept in stalls inside a barn for two years with no turnout, not even hope for turnout, considering there was no fencing on the property. Beyond the caked manure, horrific hooves and unbearably thin stature was a beautiful horse. Read our Paint Horse Rescue for the complete story.
