Photos Tell a Story ... Any Story!

i Oct 27, 2017 by Tiffany Ring

I want to discuss something that is very important to us, and that is the power of social media in animal rescue, both good and bad. Social media has made it easy to share animal neglect, and has done some very amazing things in cases of neglect.

At the same time, it can be manipulated and used to paint just about any picture you want to paint.

Worried. Things have to Change.

It's been a long day.

We got news today that one of our major granting sources is not able to fund us this coming year. While we hadn't *really* counted on it (you can't count on grants) ... in the back of my mind the fear of our hay fund being so low was eased some by the thought of that grant.

Now I'm scared.

I looked around the barn tonight[...]

It’s October - Time for Adoption Updates!

It's October which means it's time to hear from our adoptive family! Per your adoption contract, you agreed to send in photos and updates every April and October. We love seeing how well you are all doing and are always willing to help if there is a need. And remember, your horse always has a safety net with us ... and cannot be rehomed without[...]

Check out Rachel’s Progress with her Hoof Rehab!

i Oct 07, 2017 by Tiffany Ring

Our farrier posted a quick "first trim vs now" about Rachel's hooves that made me want to share quickly what we see, and what we do. Sometimes it's easy to forget where we started and how much of a difference we can make with your support!

Rachel was one of the very first horses that came in to GSH through the ISPMB neglect and seizure case last[...]

Faith is done with her rehab and ready for a home!

i Oct 06, 2017 by Tiffany Ring

After five months of stall rest due to a broken coffin bone, four of them with a shoe for stability, Faith has earned turnout in one of our paddocks.

Faith was a previously adopted horse who returned to GSH this spring as she wasn't a good fit for what her adopter's needed. She was delivered to GSH extremely lame and in need of a trim. The[...]

Let’s talk rapid growth and contracted tendons… Erin’s story

Let’s talk rapid growth and contracted tendons… Erin’s story

i Oct 04, 2017 by Tiffany Ring

While we were in Wyoming for Hamilton's procedures, we received a frantic set of text messages and videos regarding Erin. After several months of rehab for the starvation she had suffered, she'd finally turned the corner and was growing and packing on weight very quickly. In fact, too quickly, as she was now showing symptoms of contracted tendons[...]

Babysitters Wanted! Adopt or Foster a young horse today!

i Jul 18, 2017 by Tiffany Ring

Everyone loves babies, right? GSH considers every horse under 3 a baby since we start them under saddle at three. That doesn't mean they don't learn things or have training, but it's age appropriate prior to that.

We love our babies and have a hard time imagining them elsewhere. But the truth is babies just are hard to adopt out. Everyone wants[...]

Next steps for Sampson

Next steps for Sampson

i Jun 25, 2017 by Tiffany Ring

One of our very special adoptable horses, Sampson, has started the next step of his life. Sampson has been a borderline rehab horse, with severe insecurity and trust issues. What we know of his history is heartbreaking - Sampson was actually in another rescue's program, but when adopted out he was bounced from home to home when the rescue wouldn't[...]

Yesterday was yearling Ash's SIX MONTH anniversary of his surgery ... and officially the end of his rehab period. To celebrate he attended an event at Petco where he met many, many people, and got to go from his little pen out to the paddock the other babies including Arden are living in. I took video but he didn't do anything fun, just wandered[...]

ASPCA Grant Awarded to Help with ISPMB Seizure Costs

i Feb 22, 2017 by Tiffany Ring

As most of you know, Gentle Spirit Horses has been working hard after taking in 17 unhandled, thin, wormy mustangs from the ISPMB neglect and seizure situation in Lantry, SD this fall, which amounted to a 50% increase in horses in our care at our South Dakota location. This also has lead to increased expenses which are ongoing as we have x-rays,[...]
