OUR SPECIAL NEEDS HORSES AND A WONDERFUL NEW MATCH GAME!

It seems as if we are constantly asking for help and that isn’t easy for me. But we are a charity which operates solely from donations and grants and we must depend upon help from others in order to make a difference in the lives of our horses. Our golf cart batteries have unfortunately, died…

Our Rescue of Misfits II

Our Rescue of “Misfits”

This is how our day started on Friday. Peggy Sue was down on her bad side and couldn’t get up. When this happens, Peggy Sue doesn’t panic – she just lays there and waits for us to help her. We roll her over and she usually rests for a few minutes and then gets up…

Crickets Visit with Dr Bess

Cricket’s Visit with Dr. Bess

Once Dr. Bess was finished with Billy’s dental examination/ procedure, it was Cricket’s turn. Cricket’s teeth were bad, too, but not as bad as Billy’s. She also has some missing teeth. Cricket had an old injury on the upper eyelid of her left eye. The eyelid had been ripped, likely on a branch or fence. It had not been…

Billys Visit with Dr. Bess

Billy’s Visit with Dr. Bess

     After the mini’s arrival, I noticed right away that Billy was quidding. He could not chew the hay that was on the ground. Although Billy tried to eat, he ended up spitting out balls of semi-chewed food. This alone could make a horse depressed as well as cause weight loss. This is usually caused by issues with the…

A New Chapter Sophia

A New Chapter for Two Older Mini’s

On Thursday, we picked up the mini’s – a new chapter in their lives has begun! When it was time to transport them to the rescue, I told Cricket and Billy that they were going on an adventure. They walked right onto the trailer. I felt a bit of sadness – they were leaving behind the only…

August 26th, 2017 – Saturday The kittens had a calm night – their warm nesting bed is in Popper’s stroller.  They can’t control their body temperature so it’s important that us humans do what we can to help with that.  I parked them right next to my bed and every 2 hours they were fed,…

LITTLE E – OUR SENIOR MOST RESIDENT

08/23/2017 Little E is an Arabian gelding that is our senior resident here at the rescue.  Recently I noticed him laying down and when he got up he seemed a bit odd.  He had a strange look on his face and his breathing seemed different.  After he stood for a minute he walked off and…

Rainbow Bridge Cookie

COOKIE – LETTING GO

I apologize for not sending out an update during the past few days, but it’s been tough. Letting Cookie go was more than difficult and accepting that she is gone is just as hard. Some history – Cookie returned to us from an adoption a few years ago with a sore on her left ear that…
