It is not whether your words or actions are tough or gentle; it is the spirit behind your actions and words that announces your inner state.
A collection of our thoughts, tips and tricks, resources, training and adoption news, and pretty much everything that crosses our mind!
September Adoption Special: Peggy & Eliza
For the month of September, we want to place friends with friends - so we're offering an adoption special. Take home two horses, pay one adoption fee (the higher of the two if they are different). For Peggy and Eliza, that means $250 each takes them both home (must adopt two horses, must return both to receive the refund for our trial placement policy).
September Adoption Special: Eliana & Vanessa
For the month of September, adopt two horses and pay one adoption fee (the higher fee if one horse has a higher adoption fee). For mother/daughter Vanessa and Eliana, who could not only be a great riding team but could even be a great driving team if trained, that means $550 and an adoption contract will take them both home.
The #SoYouThinkYouCanTrain Youth Training Challenge is Complete!
Congrats to our nine teens and their nine former ISPMB mustang horses (aged 2-3) for completing the #soyouthinkyoucantrain #youthtrainingchallenge! They used the Forever Foundation Plan 4 Progress program and did great! Stella has a home but the other 8 need homes still!
A Taste of Freedom
The Fourth of July is all about Freedom. The horses define freedom a little differently. Thanks to a lovesick mule (Emmett) who opened two panels on the round pen, and a small area in a fence, Cola & Di took full advantage of some freedom today.
Hamilton's Recheck with Dr. Ted Vlahos
Hamilton, 2 year old mustang gelding from the ISPMB neglect situation, traveled back to Cody, WY for a recheck with the vet who gave him a chance to live. Hamilton was born missing most of the coffin bones in his hind feet, and with Dr. Vlahos' help now is a healthy, happy two year old!
Unpacking the Saddlebox with Mariah!
SaddleBox is a "Monthly gift of happiness for your horse". It's a subscription based service that sends a box of horse-related items every month. Adoptable horse Mariah was happy to assist because this month included no-sugar treats - and since she is insulin resistant she can't have most treats so these are exciting for her!
