Photos Tell a Story ... Any Story!

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.

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[...]

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[...]

A Moment of Contentment and Relaxation

The lovely sorrel mare gave me a moment today that reminded us WHY we do this and a reminder of why we have a policy of treating each horse individually. You see, that's Vanessa. She's a 6-8 (best estimate) year old mustang mare who came from the ISPMB neglect situation. As we've stated, when faced with 800+ horses that needed help, we made the[...]

May is Mother's Day month! Broodmares are one of the most needy horses - desired, loved, needed while they could have babies; often not trained, then when they are no longer needed or when breeders stop breeding they have no choices or options. Your support lets us help broodmares either retire or be trained for a new career and learn love for who[...]

Sorry for the lack of horse photos lately - Nina needs a new phone as it doesn't take great pictures and Tiffany is up there in the dark. Tiffany (who is sick) whined last night that we haven't posted anything but event and business type posts all week and Nina responded by sending her pictures today. We work together well that way. Though the[...]

An Impactiful Trip to the Lower Brule Reservation; Introducing Ina, Mato, Gleska, Tahni and Chikala

Today, we made a trip to the Lower Brule Reservation near Chamberlain, SD, after being contacted by a vet about some young horses who were in need of help quickly. A kind young man had come into her clinic this past week and asked for help rehoming his young horses, as he was taking a job in Texas and leaving in a week. With little information, we[...]

Keeping Callie Safe - A Recap

i Apr 02, 2014 by Tiffany Ring

For the past six weeks, Gentle Spirit Horses has worked hard to fundraise to secure the offspring of a previously adopted mare who was consigned to the Buckeye Morgan Horse Auction in Ohio.  The good news is we secured her and she's now in foster in Michigan, settling in, has a pending home, and is doing great!  The bad news is we are about $900[...]
