Bless the Broodies
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 they are and not just the babies they produce.
Mason - Training Evaluation
Mason's foot is feeling much better, and he's calmed down a ton, so before taking him back out to pasture we did his evaluation today.
Light at the End of the Tunnel ... end of QT!
It's been a long haul for these 5 girls that came from Ryon's Rescue Pen the week of December 7. Ran through auction in Jackson, MN on Dec 6, they found themselves owned by a kill buyer and in a broker pen. Thanks to the shock of finding Chanelle, one of the Iowa Morgans we weren't allowed to take during their initial rescue in the pen too, and with their colors and looks matching the Morgan herd, they found their way to us.
2016 Starting with a Bang!
Four horses - Hannah, EZ, Angel, and Rubi - left for their adoptive homes today. Three horses - Moxie, King and Paison (now named Mason) came into our Adoption Program yesterday. Three more horses come in next week - Sabre, a Saddlebred gelding enters our Adoption Program; Sampson, a Paint gelding enters our Rehab to Adoption Program; and Comet, a 22 year old pinto pony with heaves and Cushings enters comes in as a Permanent Resident as part of our Bug Club Children's Program.
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 headed out to help.
RIP Queenie, May 23, 1985-Sept 20, 2015
With heavy hearts we regret to announce that 30 year old Society Golden Queen, one half of our famous elderly couple Sam & Queenie, was laid to rest at 12:30 this afternoon.
