We want to thank everyone for their love and support! We hope you enjoy these stories as much as we do! Have a great holiday season! It's AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018:  Quinn and Blaze Quinn & Blaze came to AAE when their family was preparing to downsize. Fortunately, Quinn and Blaze's family were planning ahead, and when space became available, AAE was able to help, which is often not the case.  Quinn and Blaze were in good condition when they arrived. Quinn was a very fancy 23-year-old half Arab (registered) and half Saddlebred mare. She had a mild injury to her front right leg but, was lightly ridable in the past. Quinn was a sweet ol' girl that tended to be higher energy and a bit impatient. She was trained English and Western in the distant past, and she spent time in the arena and on trails.  However, she had not been ridden for about 5 years.  Back in the day, Quinn was forward on trail and loved to go!  Quinn was a bit more complicated and needed an experienced person. Not long after arrival, Quinn's teeth were floated and hooves were trimmed.  She was dewormed and vaccines were updated.  She was also evaluated by our vet and okayed for light ...

It's AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018:  Dixie, Patsy, Kitty, June and Dolly AE welcomed this group of five girls, Dixie, Patsy, Kitty, June and Dolly, from the DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary on Feb 28, 2018.  AAE has been supporting the DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary's recovery and herd reduction efforts since April 2017, after the long illness and passing of their Executive Director, Barbara Clarke in November of 2016. All five of these young girls spent some time at the Monty Roberts International Learning Centerfor gentling and learning basic groundwork before arriving at AAE.  All accepted haltering on arrival, some better than others, and they all still needed considerable time building trust and confidence. Dolly, Dixie and Kitty later returned to MRILC for participation in additional courses and further development.  They were all introduced to ground driving and a saddle (no rider).  All three did quite well. DIXIE Dixie is a nice looking and well-built, 7-year old-ish mustang mare.  She came back the "Most Improved" of this class.  She returned a different horse, much more calm, confident, and social.  She shows steady ...

It's AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018:  Amigo, Rudy and Gunner Your support in 2018 probably had the biggest impact in the lives of our next intake group: Amigo, Rudy, and Gunner. These three boys came to AAE in mid-January 2018 from a neglect situation.  Amigo and Rudy were in very poor condition. Fortunately, Gunner was in pretty good condition.  This is a long one, enjoy! AMIGO Amigo weighed about 850 pounds upon arrival.  As thin as he looked in photos, he was much thinner.  His coat was thick with dead undercoat that felt like a wool rug draped over his bony skeleton beneath.  He was also covered with hundreds of ticks that took days to remove. We were told he's 29. We were told he was a riding horse, but bucks after a couple hours (at his age, I'm sure he's saying, enough already!). Other than that, the rest is a mystery.     Thankfully, Amigo's vet check went surprisingly well, and he was started on a slow refeeding program consistent with UC Davis' protocol for rehabilitating starved horses.  After about a week at ...

It's AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018:  Dia and Noche Dia came to AAE with her buddy Noche on January 14, 2018.  Her owner lived alone and was experiencing a major health issue.  She was unable manage the physical requirements of caring for her two horses.  These two girls were delivered to AAE by a friend, and they unloaded from the trailer like it was just another day.  Ho hum! Noche appeared to be in good health.  She was a 20 year old Quarter Horse/Paso Fino mare in good condition, and very easy to handle.  She was about 13.2 hh, and we just loved her lil' legs!! She was scheduled for updating dental, vaccines, and farrier.  She was a gem, soooo good with the vet and farrier, and she loved grooming and attention.  Noche was going to make someone a fabulous pony. Dia was a super cute little (~14.0 hh), 21 year old Arabian mare.  She had a history of showing successfully in halter, and her easy going temperament occasionally allowed someone to hop on and head down the trail, even though she had no ...

It's AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018:  Gentry and Foley AAE welcomed Gentry, a pretty young mare, and Foley, her little "red" colt from the DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary in September 2017. AAE has been supporting the DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary's recovery and herd reduction efforts since April 2017. DreamCatcher has been in a recovery period after the long illness and passing of their Executive Director, Barbara Clarke in November of 2016. What a cute "little" pair they were.  Gentry was an attentive mom, but also a kid herself.  When they arrived, young Foley seemed a bit lethargic and small for his age, but mom was small, too. They were vet checked shortly after arrival, and no issues found. After a few weeks at AAE, Foley's energy level increased, and he was finally running and bucking through his paddock, like baby boys do.  That being said, he was still a super calm, easy-going gentleman for such a young squirt.  Gentry had only recently been introduced to humans when she arrived, so she was a bit shy and unsure about the new humans that were ...

You Gave Sandi a Second Chance!

It's AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018:    Sandi Sandi came to AAE on January 7, 2018, after her family was experiencing a family health and financial crisis.  Sandi was a 5 year old Arabian mare that had some training but was considered a green horse. We picked Sandi up from her boarding facility in the midst of winter stormy weather.  The facility owner said she had been moved to the round pen because she ran right through electric fencing, "very hot" electric fencing.  Sadly, we found this very cute, but skinny lil' mare enduring the winter elements with no shelter, no wind break, and no food.  We can't help but wonder if she was in the round pen because her owner was months behind in rent, or maybe she braved the "hot" fence because she was cold and needed food. Sandi loaded quietly, but she didn't travel well.  She danced around in the trailer the entire ride to AAE, and graceful she was not. Once at AAE, she had a difficult time settling into a paddock, alone.  She paced the fence lines creating ditches along her path, ...
