Day 6: 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.

Today’s story about is about this handsome boy!


Brantley came to AAE with six other equine (JakeShayLady RoseSammyConway, and Twitty) after the passing of their elderly owner. Due to the owner’s health conditions and physical limitations, this herd had not received adequate care for quite some time. Brantley had summer sores in both eyes, and he had not received hoof or dental care for a while.

Shortly after arrival, Brantley’s eyes were treated, his hooves were trimmed, and his teeth were floated. He was vaccinated and dewormed, and he got a microchip. We were told this handsome guy had been used as a trail horse several years prior. We started evaluating him under saddle, but he was cantankerous and irritable. He didn’t seem to have much training.

It wasn’t long before we realized Brantley was battling a hoof abscess, then another, and when they finally resolved, he was much more quiet and willing.

Before long, Brantley found his person!

Brantley was number six of this group of seven to find his forever home.
