We have an update on the guy who was arrested for horse abuse near Olivehurst / Lincoln. In September we rescued quite a number of horses from him, you can read that blog by clicking here. Just a quick update, his court date is Friday the 13th at 8:30 AM at the Yuba County Courthouse. It is a public hearing, and anyone following the case or interested in the case, however, please do not bring any protest signs or wear protest type clothing into the courtroom as you will be forcibly removed.
Thursday morning we had two peahens surrendered. They are really beautiful!
Kaffir has not been ridden in 5 years either. Kirsty worked with him refreshing his mind on being saddled and worked him in the round pen. He is in adoption pending and hopefully will be going home soon!
Sunday we had a nasty storm hit, but that didn’t stop our staff. It was going to be a busy morning with 7 horses scheduled to be going to their new homes! The first two horses were getting ready to be loaded up and delivered to their new home.
Peaches and Forest were heading to their new home together. Peaches was a good girl and hopped right in too. We are so happy to see these horses going to their new home. Forest is one of the horses that was rounded by the state of Nevada and was going to be shipped to slaughter if we didn’t take him and Peaches was rescued from an auction.
They each had to be microchipped, so one by one they went into our padded chute. Typically microchipping is done during gelding, but with the large number of gelding operations, our microchip supply ran out and we had to order more.
They loaded right up and soon they were on their way. They are headed to a ranch where they are going to be trained to be ranch geldings. We really appreciate the rancher adopting rescued horses instead of going out and buying top dollar horses for his ranch. With TLC and training he is going to have a wonderful group of geldings for his ranch.
