FILLY MAE - Available for Adoption
Meet Filly Mae, a 14.2 hh, 13-year-old pony-sized mare.
She is a dark bay with chrome. Mae Mae was a kids' horse down in Ocala, Florida. Kids grew up, and she moved to the broodmare field to spend retirement.
She was sent to us by the owner to find her a new home. She also prefers kids to adults. Because of her time off, we suggest a few weeks with the trainer of your choice.
Filly Mae is super smart, and everything comes right back to her. Truly a diamond for the right home.
PLEASE MESSAGE US FOR ADOPTION INFORMATION AND REQUIREMENTS. 865-438-7678
*UPDATE: We have been awarded a grant from After the Finish Line to train Filly Mae!
Adoption fee: $1,700 - Located in Knoxville, Tennessee
MISTY - Adopted
Barn name: MISTY (Located in Knoxville, TN)
"Misty," a 12-year-old, 15.3hh mare is up for adoption. She is one of our estate horses.
Misty has had ground training and started under saddle. She is willing, super smart, and learns quickly. Sound, this very nice mare would do well in English or Western disciplines, with her naturally low headset. She is familiar with woods, trails, and crossing obstacles. She loads, leads, and stands for the farrier. Papers will be available.
Her only negative? She makes the most mean, crucial mare dragon face we have seen when she needs to keep the other horses in line. This mare will make a nice horse for an intermediate and above rider.
For more information or to apply for adoption, please contact us at 865-438-7678 or via email:HomestretchTbredRescue@gmail.com.
Adoption fee (for approved adopter): $1,800
RED GIANT SUN
Barn name: SUNNY
RED GIANT SUN, a 10-year-old, 16-hands dark bay gelding. Grandson of Giants Causeway, who left his mark on his offspring who have an extra special attachment to their person.
A good boy under saddle with experience in trails and jumping obstacles. He is a solid horse with no known injuries. "Sunny" is one of the most social horses we have had here. He loves and trusts people.
Sunny also has a brain with a knack for storing new information like a steel cabinet. For example, after racing only four times, he was caught up in a multi-horse wreck at the starting gate. He was uninjured. Despite the fact that he lost his jockey during the wreck, this horse charged ahead riderless and finished the entire race in 6th place. The other horses were still at the gate area. You teach him and he will remember!
Great work ethic, personality, and gorgeous confirmation. Sunny is one of our estate horses and has never had any trauma or bad treatment.
To adopt, please message us for adoption information and video; or text 865-438-7678.

RUSH - Adopted
Barn name: Rush
Rush is a long yearling KY-bred gelding.
He’s over 15.3 and growing. We have begun his training with ground work and gentle conditioning. He’s sound, smart and gets along fine in a herd.
A barn favorite, Rush loves going to the fence and greeting visitors.
When he was still a baby, Rush came to us as a true-blue slaughter rescue. I personally pulled him off a truck and the rest of the horses from his farm left for Mexico.
We would love for Rush to be someone’s Cinderella story.
