This is a post about longears available from the Save Your Ass Long Ear Rescue. They are a 501c3 doing great work to try to rescue these abandoned and sometimes abused equines.
The poor economy has affected us all. We only have eight animals at a time in the rescue. This ensures every animal getting the individual care and attention it deserves. Every time an animal goes to it’s new home, that makes room for another to come in. Hopefully the move to lower our adoption fees a bit will help more people be able to welcome a long ear into their lives.
Visit our Adoption Information page for more information on how to adopt a long ear from SYALER.
Pepper is a three year old mini donkey gelding. His former owner rescued him from life in a dog cage!! He is a sweet little guy, and adorable to look at. He was very pushy with other donkeys when he first came in but now, a month later he has calmed down a lot and is getting along well with his pasture mates.
He is a bit of a handful for the vet, but not horrible…just doesn’t like to stand still. There is no aggression at all, just antsy. Same for the farrier. He does much better if he is not restrained tightly, but a bit of sedation for the first couple of trims would not be a bad idea.
I would like to see him in a home with a gelding of a similar age so he will have someone to play with. He loves to play!
He is utd on rabies and tetanus and has a negative coggins.
Adoption fee: $600.00

Maggie is a 3 year old, sweet molly (female) pony mule. She is a little bit shy, but once she is socialized a bit I think she will be in your pocket. She is said to be good for vet and farrier, but I can not verify that yet. She will be examined by our vet within the next week or so and brought up to date on rabies and tetanus vaccinations, and have blood drawn for coggins.
Adoption fee: $500.
Abby is a striking 5 year old molly (female) pony mule. She is a little bit shy, but once she is socialized a bit I think she will be in your pocket. She is said to be good for vet and farrier, but I can not verify that yet. She will be examined by our vet within the next week or so and brought up to date on rabies and tetanus vaccinations, and have blood drawn for coggins.

Willow is a beautiful, sweet 12 year old, dark bay mule. She is fine with having her feet handled. She is utd on rabies, tetanus, and has a negative coggins. We do not have a history on Willow as she came from auction. She was here before and adopted out for a year. Her former owner had to surrender her back to us due to unfortunate family cricumstances.
She has some fear issues, which we are working with her on getting past. She would be a great companion animal. She is easy to work around, loves being groomed and fussed with.
Adoption fee: $650.00
Vera and Rosemary
Have you ever heard of a hinny? We have two of them who are available for adoption. A hinny is the result of breeding a male horse to a female donkey. The hinny is sterile, due to having an uneven number of chromosomes. Vera and Rosemary are both young females. They came from auction without much history. They are a perfectly matched bay pair, about 13.3hh. They will be up to date on rabies and tetanus vaccines and have a negative coggins.
Vera and Rosie are coming along nicely, although just getting them to the point they can be handled has been a very long row to hoe. Vera can now be easily caught and handled. She is very good for the farrier and loves being groomed and loved upon. Rosie is much less shy, though she still needs work. She was excellent for the farrier for her last trim. We were very proud of her brave behavior.
These animals will need to go to someone with mule experience. They still need a lot of work before they can be used in any discipline.
