Today Jason beat the heat and unloaded the stock trailer that was still full of hay before the sun got to hot. That’s another 72 bales of heavy hay. There’s still about 150 bales waiting to be picked up. It is such wonderful hay, we are very fortunate to have been able to stockpile more hay.


The trailer rental company, Surplus City Fun Center in Oroville, really made it right when it came to the tire fiasco the other night with the flatbed and the hay. Not only did they not charge us for replacing the tires, which they legally could have chosen to do, they also gave us credit for a free rental in the future because of our trouble. With an attitude like that, they are sure to do well.

Mid morning Jason and Tawnee headed off to the vet for our Last Act of Kindness day. It was hard saying goodbye to the unadoptable horses, but we just had to keep our hearts focused on the big picture. We saved them from slaughter, gave them love care and attention, and gave them a dignified and peaceful end to their magnificent lives. We love them all and miss them very much!

Ranger was also taken to the vet today for evaluation and hopefully for stringhalt surgery. He is such a sweet boy, and watching him hop along with the vet assistant, it really made us hope he will be a good candidate for surgery! He was in our round pen the other day, goofing around, and he laid down and rolled. When he hopped back up, he felt like running and bucking, but that stringhalt leg soon hoisted itself into the air and he had to stand there with his head hung, looking so sad. He wants to run and play! Hopefully soon he will.

Tawnee worked feverishly on the Petfinder website this evening, our high speed Internet really showed it’s colors, and now every available horse is on our website. There are currently 43 equines needing homes! Please spread the word!

We would like to introduce you to all of the equines that were rescued at the last auction. Please enjoy their pictures! Some of them have already been adopted, so if you see one that you are interested in, contact us ASAP! All these pictures except the 5 at the end were taken at the auction when they were initially rescued.

  1. Have you ever looked into getting credit for internet traffic? Like the Humane Society and Cancer research where anyone can go there and CLICK on a button which gives the organization funds (albiet pennies) to them? I am guessing if people are like me who log in almost every day to read your blog – we could at least CLICK to give you something since our pockets are empty……
