AAE support of DreamCatcher herd reduction efforts:
During 2017 and 2018, AAE has supported the herd reduction efforts of DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary after the long illness and passing of their Executive Director, Barbara Clarke in November of 2016.  Though preservation of genetic lines were part of DC’s mission, none of the boys were castrated, the horses lived in a free range environment, and overpopulation became an issue.  In May and July 2017, with a new director in place, over 90 colts and stallions were gelded.  Though tremendous efforts were made to keep mares and stallions separate, sadly, some mares were impregnated for 2018 foals.
For AAE, it all started with an orphan foal, that little Rascal, in April 2017! We continued to support and adopt.  We had another orphan colt, Cowboy, arrive in May, and June brought three young geldings, Waylon, Whitley and Walker.  Then came the first three burros, followed by Ford, Gentry and her colt, Foley.  Two more burros topped off the year.
The following horses/burros were ADOPTED in 2017 and 2018:

 
COWBOY
 
     
WAYLON, WHITLEY, & WALKER
 
 

 

BURRO ZAC, 
BURRO ZAC, & 
BURRO JOE
 

 

BURRO BROWN &
BURRO GRAY

GENTRY &
FORD (ADOPTION PENDING)
 
The new year brought five young girls the end of February:  June, Kitty, Dixie, Dolly, and Patsy.  An unexpected delivery the beginning of March brought mom, Martina, and wee little filly, Valentine.  More babies and more urgency to get them out of the winter weather brought Tegan and colt, Austin, Gypsy and filly, Calico Girl, and Kelsea and days old colt, Rucker.
Unexpectedly, we learned June was pregnant, and along came Johnny in April.  One more call for help came in early May when travel plans were complicated by a mom that wouldn’t let little one nurse.  Tae and days old filly, Maddie, came and thankfully worked through their challenges.  That filled our barn and paddocks for most of the year, and we are happy to be able to support DC’s efforts.
 
Because of your support, AAE has been able to continue to support horses in need. 
The following horses are (or will soon be) AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION.  Click their name to visit their page for more information.

If you can’t adopt, SPONSOR a horse and
help support AAE’s efforts while homes are found.
There are many more older mustangs at DreamCatcher that are in need of soft landings at sanctuary-type homes, ideally keeping family bands together.  Do you have space where older mustangs can live out their lives??   If so, contact us or visit the DreamCatcher website:http://www.dreamcatcherhorsesanctuary.org/
