Laverne and Shirley – Found Their Forever Home!
Laverne and Shirley were a surrender case here in North Carolina. We were contacted by their previous owners that they were moving, and they need to re-home these babies. It was a four-hour ride (2 hours each way) to pick them up. We brought them here to the rescue on March 31, 2021. Their original names were Flower and Priscilla, but we did not think that those names fit them quite well. It is very clear at some point Laverne was abused in her past and is very skittish. However, Shirley is very friendly and loves attention, she is willing to climb in your lap for treats and pets. They are very emaciated with both being a 2 on the body scale, currently they both have their winter coats. Laverne is very wormy as to why her stomach is large. Poor Shirley gave us a scarce because she was colicing so the vet had to come tubed her. Once she was tubed it allowed everything to pass through her system. They both will be dewormed, checked out by the vet, possible teeth floating, updated shots and coggins. They are finally ready for adoption as a bonded pair! They are super sweet horses that will only be companion horses (cannot be worked or ridden). Laverne is still learning to trust but slowly everyday she is building her confidence and wanting to explore more. These cutie pies were not here for a long time before they found their forever home with Taryn S. and her husband! They are soaking up all the love and treats they are receiving daily.
