Tuesday morning Kirsty was busy getting the microchips, vaccinations and dewormers ready to do the new auction horses.

Kirsty and Tawnee got busy with the initial intake information, heights, ages, and photos, along with all their medication and microchips.

This is Dandy, a 15.2 hand Paint gelding.  We believe he is in his 20’s.  He does have lameness we are going to have our vet check out to make sure it’s not causing him chronic pain

This is Atlas, we believe he is a Warmblood, 16.1 hand gelding in his teens.  He too is suffering from lameness in his legs.  It’s always sad how many lame horses are dumped at auctions.

Vidal is a 13.2 hand sorrel gelding who is 2 years old.

Vidal has a problem going on with his shoulder, as you can see in this picture the bone is protruding abnormally.

This is Smeda, she is an 11 year old 14.2 hand mare.

Smeda is trained to ride, just needs a tune up but she is a sweet horse.

Leeza is 15 hands tall and about 12 years old.  She is trained to ride but seems to have some issues going on with her front that the vet will be checking out.

Sam is a 15.1 hand gelding in his teens.

Sam is trained to ride and will probably be a great kids horse.

Twila is a 2 year old Quarterhorse roan mare.  She is very flashy.

Zuri is a very cute paint filly.  She does have some lameness we believe is caused from an old injury.  We are really hoping our vet can correct it!  If you are interested in any of these horses please contact us: click here.

Jessica was out trimming horses.  Kachina was a pretty good girl for her trim.

While Jessica was finishing up with Kachina, Tawnee got to work on Munchy’s hooves.

Munchy had a hard time standing, so they helped him lay down and did his hooves that way.  Tawnee and Jessica worked as fast as they could on getting his hooves done.  He seemed to sit back, relax, and almost get a smile on his face, he was no doubt thinking “Wow, some people finally decided to help me!”

His hooves were so long, but in not time they got trimmed up and looking like normal hooves.

Finally it was all done and he was able to take his first steps on his newly trimmed hooves.  He is such a cute little guy, but oh so skinny.

Radar got his hooves trimmed too.  Every time we look at him we all feel sick, he is SO skinny.  He was a good boy for his pedicure.

About this time Animal Control was pulling into the shelter with some transfers.  Some of them were big, and some were little.

We would like you to meet Fluffers, she is an Angora cross.  She is so cute and fluffy.

This is Brinco, he is a very cute Dutch cross rabbit.  He really enjoys being with people.

They also transferred two horses to us, we will have them evaluated for quality of life.

As you can see the condition is pretty bad.  It’s so sad to see horses in this shape.

This very cute silky rooster named Annabelle was surrendered to the shelter.  His owner loved him dearly, but…

…Annabelle was supposed to be a girl  and since Annabelle started crowing he could no longer stay in his home.  We get a lot of roosters surrendered to us because people live in communities that do not allow roosters to crow.  Annabelle is a very pretty boy.

Thank you all for your support!
