Never Say Never Stables

One of the barn bunnies is looking for a winter foster home and/or a new “furever” home!

Last year the barn bunnies were able to be fostered by volunteers over the winter (the barn setting is too cold for them to stay in the harshest months, late October- April or May), but we have still not found anyone willing or able to do so this year for Sage (The other rabbit, “Spring”, has happily found a foster and possible permanent home ).
“Sage” is an approximately 3 yo blue otter colored standard Rex.
We are not exactly sure of her age as she came from a prior situation which did not provide much insight into her past. She is not spayed, but does not spray or have any aggressive behavior.
Sage is a sweetie - gentle and a little shy but very snuggly. She loves her greens and out of cage play time!
She was likely never litter box trained, and has not been interested in using a box, but she restricts her potty mainly to one section of the cage.
Sage has been handled by people of all ages and exposed to a wide variety of stimuli at the stables with all the activities that go on there.
Sage would come with her cage, water bottle, toys, and any remaining food in her current bag.
Feel free to share with family and friends you think would be interested!
Comment on this post or PM our page with interest in fostering or adopting Sage, or with any questions.

It was a good morning on Saturday for a stroll (uh...I mean run. Yeah, really fast run!) through Genesee Valley Park to support the Autism Council's 5k. Met some fantastic folks who also support families living with autism in our community. ❤️❤️

A HUGE thanks to Rachael McVeigh and her NHS crew from Webster Thomas H.S. and our fabulous NSN volunteers for helping out at the barn on our Spring Clean Up day!

General information

Sessions include assisted recreational riding on trails and in our outdoor arena, as well as time to groom, pet and bond with the horse. The gentle movement and warmth of the horse stimulates flexibility and a natural release of tension and stress. Participants can learn about the principles of safe horsemanship and the basics of riding, if one of their goals includes learning how to ride. For those who are unable or not ready to ride, many find deep satisfaction and empowerment in learning how to lead a horse from the ground, and most children simply love just being near these kind, intuitive, and loving animals. This program is unique and personal to each participant.
