Let's introduce you to those we have helped since the first of the year and show you a picture of each. Beautiful Hope, who sadly passed the day after her she got here. The first horse that ever arrived at the rescue so badly starved that her body was already shutting down and all we could do was comfort, not save her. RIP Hope.
January 14th, we picked a weanling named Twinkle and she spent a month with our foster Ginny (who also has Dann Sister horse Remi) before coming to the rescue in February. We housed a horse in March for a family who live in Tucson and needed a safe overnight place for him and they fell in love with Twinkle at first sight. Guess who was in their trailer the next morning and now lives with the Nieman family in Tucson?
|Twinkle, now called May.|
Also in January we were asked to take in an 27 year old mare for a family having a rough time and unable to afford to keep her. On February 2, we transported Copper Rose to the rescue and she is settling in nicely with the oldsters. She has put on a few pounds since her arrival. She is still rideable so we would consider finding her an adoptive home. We are pleased that we have been in contact with her prior owners and they are following us now too.
A few days after his arrival Lary and I made a turn around trip all the way to Yuma, AZ to pick up Stella and Jenny, two mules who needed a new home. We were so tickled when our neighbors offered to give them a forever home. The girls spent the night with us and the next day we delivered them to Darlene and Judee who are over the moon in love with them.
We still have Cinnabon at Aliki's for training. We brought her back from California last December when her owner moved out of state and could not keep her. She needed a 90 day layup to heal from lameness pain she had when we got her. We did a thorough vet exam, x-rays and two chiropractic visits. She received Previcox to help with swelling and pain for 60 days and next week will have another visit with the vet. She has been able to do ground work, but nothing under saddle. 2017 we have been tapped really hard with medical bills for her and Missy. This is Cinnabon, we first rescued her as a weanling from the Fallon Feedlot in 2012.
As you can see there have been lots of good things happening at the rescue as we have been able to help many all ready this year and add new adopters and fosters to the EqWBR family.
We can't thank you enough for your donations which have helped each and every one of these horses, donkeys and mules this year, in addition to 15 at the ranch, two others in training and Gen who will be coming back to the ranch now that the weather is warming up.
We recently set up the ability for people to make monthly, tax-deductible donations using our website. If this is something you would consider, even small monthly donations help us, just click this link: I'd like to make a donation. It is easy to do and can be stopped at anytime.
Thank you, thank you all so very much!
