These Three Girls!

We are all so very thankful, incredibly grateful, and unbelievably blessed to have your support in making better the lives of so many horses!! This beautiful trio is still looking for a home. Chesney, Clare, and Teea are so very bonded, the ideal situation is for them to move to a home where they can be together. They are mid-teens and each very unique!

Oh Danny Boy, We Love You So!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: As we're settling into our new home in Pilot Hill, it seems the perfect time to reflect on some of the special horses you have helped over the years. Another oldie but goodie is elderman, Danny! This ol' guy is well known for his sweet demeanor and his hugs. DANNY Danny's story isn't one of neglect, abandonment, abuse, or poor care. Sadly, it's one of human health and aging. Danny was loved beyond words. So much, his former owner considered euthanizing him rather than risk him having difficulties transitioning to a new home, ending up in a bad home, or worse, the fear of auctions and the slaughter pipeline. It was an emotional day ...

Is Amigo One of Your Favorites!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: As we're settling into our new home in Pilot Hill, it seems the perfect time to reflect on some of the special horses you have helped over the years. None is more special than our elderman, Amigo. At 33, he is the grand dad of all the horses enjoying their new views in Pilot Hill. AMIGO Amigo came to AAE with two of his pals in mid-January 2018 from a neglect situation. He weighed-in about 850 pounds, and we were told he was 29. As thin as he looks in photos, he was much thinner. His coat was thick with dead like an old shag rug that tried to hide his bony frame. He ...

Chilly Pepper – Great Grandma “Norma” – Will you Help her?

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: Another emergency in the middle of "vetting the 46". I have been asked to give "GG Norma", a chance. At the very least she deserves the best feed, love and care until she crosses over. However, even though two vet's looked at her and didn't give her much hope, she is telling a different story. Her eyes are bright and she is alert and curious and says "PLEASE don't quit on me!" Will you help me give her the best love and care for whatever time she has left? We are due for a Miracle, and I'm hoping you will help me give her a chance. We have spent over $1400 on fuel ...

Chilly Pepper – URGENT 911 – 46 Lives at Stake – Can we turn heartbreak into inspiration and help the 46?

The following is from Chilly Pepper - Miracle Mustang: My heart is shattered as I write this. Although he fought valiantly and beat all the odds, our beautiful Norman is running free in heaven with his Mama. Sadly, Norman's lungs were permanently damaged and he let me know when it was time to go. He was having seizures and was so weak he couldn't always get up. His knees were buckling over and although his heart was pounding constantly and Doc said it sounded like he was trying to breathe through a straw, he was a happy, playful little boy. Doc and I both knew it was coming, but that doesn't lessen the devastation. She said he picked the right time. He was starting ...

Thank you, Volunteers, Gabby Who?, Big Day of Giving, and Boots & Bling, too

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue: It's National Volunteer Week! It's time to shine a lil' light on all of AAE's volunteers. You make a difference for our horses every single day! Through rain, sleet, and snow, and through the heat you go! Day in and day out, you contribute more than you know. Thank YOU for all you do, YOU are making lives better, one horse at a time! We are adjusting to many the many changes a new home brings. Unfortunately, it’s not all rainbows and roses… we recently had a positive strangles case with one of our lil ponies, Minnie. She's been with us for quite some time (more than a year). We have ...
