The next auction is this weekend and we need your help to save lives! Every month we rescue as many horses as we can at livestock auctions to keep them from slipping into the slaughter pipeline. Please help us save precious lives, click here.
Thursday morning Prancer was getting adopted. He had a fancy new halter and was quite the stylish looking guy as he rode away. He is one of the horses from the Grass Valley group. The previous owner that Animal Control seized the horses from has been trying to track down people who are adopting the horses, if you receive a message from Fred, please forward it on to us. He is upset that the vet recommended the Last Act of Kindness for some of the horses that had chronic medical problems that were causing them continuous pain. Our security cameras have caught him snooping on the shelter property at night despite being repeatedly told to stay off the shelter property. He has also left threatening messages on our phone and email. It is an Animal Control case and these horses were legally surrendered to us from Animal Control. Our goal is to get them healthy, happy and adopted into great homes.
Our farrier came out to work on the Mustangs feet in our padded chute. This machine has been an absolute lifesaver for horses and humans.
Kirsty and April also made sure to dip their umbilical cords in iodine. Dipping their umbilicus in iodine as soon as possible after birth is important as the iodine drys the umbilical stump and prevents bacteria from traveling up the stump and entering the foal’s body.
The people who surrendered him said they found him a week ago and he was emaciated. After a week of great food and care, he made a full recovery and is looking for his forever home. He is well trained and friendly.
Saturday March 28 is our benefit trail trial, we hope you can attend it should be a lot of fun. For more information, click here.
