bentley - adopted!
Little Bentley is now 21/2 years old and once a cute little guy is now growing up and very handsome. He's a bay pony who needs a very special person to keep him busy and having fun!
Bentley was saved from the kill pen in Bowie, Texas just hours before he was scheduled to ship to Mexico. He tugged on our heart strings and is now part of the Blue Horse Rescue family.
After a very lengthy quarantine in Texas, Bentley has finally arrived! He made the trip from Texas to California and we all eagerly awaited his arrival on April 18th - it seemed like he would never get here. He is now much healthier - no more respiratory infection, and is settling nicely into his new foster home.
We will be posting more information as we receive word from Bentley's foster mom. It is rumored that he halters and leads very nicely which is always a bonus!
Looking forward to meeting this little one and helping him on his way to a great home.

Update: August 25th, 2017:
Bentley has been in training with Ray Berta for the past six months and is really doing great! He is out on the trails of Carmel Valley doing a lot of ground work, and getting strong on the hills. He has come a long way and we are beginning to fine tune and start thinking about finding this little one a great home. If you are interested in adopting Bentley, Ray Berta has agreed to give potential serious adopters the chance to attend a training session to see what Bentley is all about. If you are interested please contact Blue Horse Rescue at: email@example.com
Update: September 1st, 2017!
Great day today!!! Bentley has found an amazing new home! He will be joining his new mom, Sharon and her herd of nine horses this coming Thursday. I visited with Sharon this weekend and I am so happy for Bentley - he is already loved, and has so much to look forward to in his new life - a herd of nine, a beautiful 12 by 24 stall, a large, large shared paddock and multiple pastures to roam. He will also be able to go out on the trails and ... learn all about the beach! So looking forward to hearing all about Bentley's new adventures. This little pony has a huge heart, a ton of curiosity, a huge play drive, an amazing sense of self, and a whole lot of "let's go!". This is a perfect match for Bentley and Sharon, and I so look forward to hearing about all their new adventures as they live their lives out together. It's like a pony Cinderella story!
