Oliver – Permanent Resident – Fully Sponsored by Jeanette C.
Oliver Finnegan also known as “Oliver” is a 23-year-old Appendix Gelding who stands at 16.2 hands. Oliver came here to the rescue in his late teens on April 4, 2013. I was forwarded a Craigslist ad from a person concerned about his condition. I decided to go look, and upon arrival I found he was in much worse shape than described. His owner at the time would not release him without a cash payment. I put a deposit on him and brought him to the rescue the next day. He was anemic, wormy, and in dire need of good food. His back was also covered in rain rot. The book Oliver Twist is where his name came from, he always picks up his feed pan when he finishes eating as if he is asking for more. Oliver has a stifle issue making him able to be ridden lightly around the farm. He is an extremely sweet horse who loves to get attention as much as he can.
