Blaze is a small, 14.2 hands, gelding, about 30 years old, (in 2017), who had just arrived at Mylestone in time for Valentine's Day 2008. Lucky for him! He was taken last fall by the Gloucester County Animal Control from an owner who had starved him and refused to care for him properly.

Unfortunately, the Gloucester County ACO's were unable to find him a home who wasn't looking for a horse to ride. With his severe sway back, Blaze could never be ridden without being in pain, nor would any saddle fit him comfortably. As Blaze was taking up the only spot Gloucester County had to house equine cruelty cases, they'd become in a bind. One of the NJ State vets contacted us, asking for our help in finding Blaze a home, which we offered the gentle boy.

If you would be interested in adopting Blaze, it will only be as a companion horse - he is absolutely not ridable! He's been through plenty, and now needs to spend his senior years relaxing with good food, good friends and lots of love. Contact us if you are interested in adopting Blaze and are looking for a companion horse only.

Blaze needs your help and support. Mylestone receives no funding from any government agency when we accept their cruelty cases; you are the rescue horses' hope. Please sponsor Blaze so we can keep him well-fed, healthy and happy.
