Day 10: It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!


The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

As we count down to 2021, join us every day this month as we share stories from the barn that show how your support has helped horses in 2020.

With the uncertainties and challenges of this year, we truly appreciate your generosity and support.

Next up is the cutest lil’ dude we’ve had in a long time!


Billy is a sweet mustang born on the Virginia Range in Nevada around March 1, 2018. This lil dude was orphaned when his mom was run off by a bachelor band when he was just days old. He was fostered by local volunteers before coming to AAE to continue his recovery as an orphan foal. His rescuers suspected he had a hernia and additional veterinary needs were anticipated.

Billy came in with Luna, another orphan mustang. They were like kindergarten boyfriend and girlfriend. They were absolutely adorable together and together all the time, until Luna had to be a big girl and go to her new family. It was a bittersweet day, but she is doing very well.

Billy loved his Grammy Sierra! If he wasn’t spending time with her, he was hanging out with all the other littles in the pasture!

His castration was delayed a bit due to a suspected scrotal hernia as a foal and the need for surgery in the clinic, just in case. Thankfully, surgery went well, and no signs of a hernia were found. This big guy was ready for his forever home. While he waited, he spent some time with a foster family where he got to be a little brother to big mustang Moose and play dress-up with his foster mom (we think he liked it!).

Billy loved entertaining our volunteers. He was a volunteer favorite, and as you can tell, he gave us a lot of memorable moments. Everyone loved getting a chance to spend time with this guy.

This lil’ guy was absolutely adorable when he came in….and he got so handsome as he matured! Billy was very social and inquisitive, calm and easy-going, and he couldn’t get enough grooming and any kind of attention where he could simply hang out. He was playful, yet respectful, and almost a model “citizen” of AAE. He had the perfect amount of sass! Exercise, well, that’s another story. He was a lazy guy that would rather be a couch potato than out racing around the pasture. He could do no wrong.

Billy was adopted in May. He waited a long time to find his forever home, but sometimes good things take time!
