We are extremely excited to report that thanks to Betsy W’s donation to get this program up and going, our microchiping program will be reintroduced.  The horses will still be freeze branded, but now with two forms of permanent identification, the adopted horses will be as  safe as we can make them!  We would also like to thank Microchip ID for their support as well.  We are now going to start holding low cost microchipping clinics for people who their horse protected in the event of theft, natural disaster, et .  If you are interested in getting a clinic held in your area, please let us know.  There does need to be a minimum of 10 horses that are going to be microchipped.  Please contact us for more information.

Friday morning we had a new arrival.  Meet Goaty.  His family, who had bottle raised him from 2 weeks old, could no longer keep him and asked if we could find him a home where he would not be eaten.

On Friday, Tank was adopted!  His new mom was so excited to add him to her family.  She also…

…adopted the remaining two chickens.  Poor little survivors.  It was just a terrible massacre, we believe it was neighborhood dogs.   We are so glad that Mrs Crow and Buffy survived and are in a great home.

Tank’s mom’s daughter fell in love with Nichole.  So, Nichole got adopted and went home Friday too.  What a great day!  Nichole now has the perfect home where she will be loved on and can enjoy the trails.

Sunday was a terribly windy, rainy day.  Some of the shelter roofing was blown apart and will have to be fixed before the next rainstorm.  The winds were blowing up to 50 mph, it was a really crazy storm.  Even the horses blankets were getting blown off of them.  It was just a really rough day.  To make matters worse, people were calling up saying they wanted to come visit the shelter.  We are always closed on rainy days, and especially when it is a cyclone!

To make Sunday a little more interesting, the kb called up and said he had 3 horses and a donkey in his trailer, he was driving back north and he would sell them to us if we wanted.   We said “Yes” and due to the rain wind and mud, we rerouted him to another location.  Thanks to the $10,000 that was raised, we were able to save more lives from the slaughter pipeline.

We didn’t get a lot of pictures of the newest arrivals, but this is the cute little donkey.  He is an approximately 2 year old jack, who is going to soon be a 2 year old gelding.  He is really cute!

Don’t forget to vote today!  We are in 38th overall and 3rd for California. Vote for us using our old name: NorCal Equine Rescue  Click here.

The next blog is expected to be Thursday, giving us time to get the shelter put back together.

Thank you, I wish you could see her entire body…….we also found out that she is trained well beyond what we thought, she has definately been trained in reining as well as cutting, she tracks a cow with persition! My daughter is very happy and when she goes to meet her she comes to her…no chasing this horse around. By the way she remnamed her Tee-La. Cute huh?
