This morning Tawnee was spending some time with her personal horse, Boaz. He needed some worming and then she gave him some grain so that he could have something yummy in his mouth instead of that nasty tasting wormer. Tawnee stepped back into the tack room as Boaz was happily munching his grain, and when she stepped out, Boaz was standing wide eyed and bewildered as two dwarfs came over and took over his grain. Being a good natured boy he just stepped aside and shared his treat.
Jason and Ron moved some round bales into the large pens for the horses. There is only 1 more round bale, we really need to get another truck load on the way! Let’s hope we can get this together soon. Ron enjoyed playing “Hay Rodeo” as he rode on the big bale as it was drug along.
We would like to take a moment to welcome the very first horse of 2009! Tawnee spent a great deal of the day compiling the 2008 equine statistics for NorCal Equine Rescue. There was a total of 383 equines rescued in 2008!!! 344 horses, 20 pony’s, 9 mini’s, 6 donkey’s, and 4 mules. Of those equines, we had an 88% success rate of adoption for this year! Our adoption rate since we began rescuing is 93% out of 781 equines. Our goal for 2009 is to keep our adoption rate extremely high, unfortunately there are still many more horses than there are homes. To be rescued by NorCal Equine Rescue is a lucky day for a horse! With your continued support in 2009 we hope to further our rescue efforts in remarkable ways. Our hearts are full of commitment to rescue as many equines as possible from abuse, neglect, abandonment, slaughter and worse! Together we will make this a remarkable year!
