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.
Looking to add to our hay!
