This week we had a volunteer and her daughter come to the shelter to help out. They worked with the miniature geldings. Mystery was really good. He will make a great kids pony for someone. He was really quiet and walked around the round pen, with the best manners.
Next they moved them to the small animal pen. They have been gelded for about a month now and are ready to become more socialized.
It was exciting watching them say hi to the big horses on the other side of the fence.
This handsome rooster was surrendered to the shelter. He is so beautiful! Lots of roosters come to the shelter that have no where else to go. They are available for adoption, but if no home is found, they enjoy roaming the shelter keeping the fly population down.
Some visitors to the shelter really fell in love with Budbud. They also really like a couple other horses that are at the shelter. We are really hoping they will be adopting soon.
Jake, the donkey, loaded up to head to his new home. He has a bright future ahead of him as a therapy donkey. He seems to really love kids and will be perfect for brightening their day.
Our vet came out to look at a few horses and the new auction group.
We recently had a horse surrendered with a large lump on the side of his throat, the vet took blood see if it’s cancerous.
Brodie (our gelding saved from the Texas feed lot, if you missed that blog click here) was getting his check up. He checked out A-OK and we are very happy for him.
Next were the auction horses.
Vegas was getting looked at as he was lame at the auction and still is.
He has severe stone bruise on his left front hoof. We will be soaking his foot daily and the vet is hopeful that he will be fine after some treatment.
Next was Scarlet’s turn to be examined. Our vet checked to see if she was pregnant, and sure enough, she is about three months along.
Scarlet already has a baby, Hidalgo, and he waited for his mom safely in our holding room while his mom was examined.
First thing on Wednesday we had bunnies surrendered. They are really cute, and they are available for adoption.
It’s definitely fire season in California! There was a fire fairly close to the shelter.
We are thankful that Cal fire was able to get it out by the end of the day.
Shiloh and the rest of us here at Horse Plus wanted to say many thanks to the firefighters that assisted with putting out the fire.
Many thanks to all of you for your support, both financial and emotional. It really means a lot!
