January Arrivals Update

As you know, in Janaury, AAE took in seven horses. We have been very busy helping them back to good health, and wanted to share an update on their status.
 If you’d like to contribute toward the monthly costs for a specific horse to support our work as we rehabilitate these horses and search for forever homes, please consider sponsoring one of these special souls.  Visit our website for more info.  If you would like to be a monthly sponsor fora specific horse,
please click the “Sponsor” link below the horse.
No doubt, these horses have already put a dent in our vet budget.  After reading each horse’s story, if you’d like to make a donation to help with the costs we have incurred, please click the link below to donate.

Dia and Noche – ADOPTED!!

These two girls came to AAE together after family health issues, and they found their forever home together.
Dia’s surgery went well.  Thank you for your donations to help her.  She had multiple melanomas under her tail, on her hip, on her neck, and in her mouth.  Two under her tail were aggravated.  One was internal and growing, pushing her rectum to the side.  Continued growth could block feces from passing.  Another was ulcerated, which is painful and attracts flies.  These two were removed.  Turns out, she had four inside where her mouth where her upper and lower lips meet….painful if bitted/bridled for riding, so these were removed, as well.  Last, she had a large one on her hip.  It wasn’t actively an issue, but with it’s size and location, we opted to remove with the others to prevent future issues.  Many more beneath her tail were lasered while she was under, as well.  Her healing went well, and both had their dental care, vaccinations,deworming, and hoof care.
Dia and her buddy, Noche were adopted together.  These are two really sweet, super little mares, and they moved on to their “happily ever after”. Dia is enjoying life as a sun goddess while she heals, and Noche is entertaining the family with her gentle, carefree ways.
Thank you for your support in helping these two back to good health and finding their new family.

Remember Sandi?

 Due to a family health crisis, Sandi was basically abandoned at her boarding facility.  Sandi was housed in a roundpen in an open area with no shelter or wind break, and obviously, her nutritional needs were not being met.  She came to AAE in early January during our stormy winter weather.  She’s making steady progress and is looking great.  Here was Sandi upon arrival.
And Sandi, nearly two months later…
Sandi is a very sweet 5 y/o Arab mare.  She enjoys interaction with people, loves grooming, and never misses an opportunity to ask someone to rub her forehead.  She’s a sensitive mare, and lacks confidence.  She can be quite reactive when startled or frightened.  She is learning to trust her handler and respect their space, but she continues to crowd her handler and react before she thinks.  She does ok with hoof handling, but can be impatient and difficult with the farrier on her hinds.  She’s improving, but hooves are still a work in progress.  She loads and unloads fairly well, but doesn’t travel well.  She’s very nervous in a moving trailer and will need some ongoing help there, as well.  We were told she was ridden in a bosal, but due to her condition upon arrival and ongoing rehab, we have not yet explored her under saddle, but she’s ready.  She is a pretty little mare, but she doesn’t have the best of builds by far.   Sandi is now available for adoption, and she will continue her progress until her forever person or family is found.  At this time, she is looking for a solid horse-experienced home, and one that is looking solely for a light riding prospect.
Thank you, Judy G., for sponsoring Sandi’s feed.
Sandi needs a partial sponsor ($50/month) to support cover her basic care.

Amigo, Rudy and Gunner – Better Every Day! 


These three muskateers came to AAE in mid-January as a result of a neglect situation.  Amigo is a 29-ish ol’ guy that was in dire condition.  Not only emaciated, but he was covered with hundreds of ticks.  His old, dead coat camouflaged his bony frame, but this photo of him lying down doesn’t leave much wonder.
He’s not 100% yet, but he has come a long way.  This photo is from a couple weeks ago, not quite two months from intake, and he’s looking even better today!!
Amigo is a gentle giant and a true survivor.  We are super excited to see his progress and see him beginning to thrive.  He is such a mellow, patient guy, and his world simply stops with every stroke of a hand or brush as he seems to cherish every ounce of attention.  He’s had dental and hoof care, vaccines and deworming, and it’s only a matter of time before he’s back to good health.  Love, love, love this ol’ dude!
Thank you, Joe and Patti for sponsoring Amigo’s feed and basic care!!


  Rudy is about 23 years old, and thankfully, he was in a little better condition than Amigo, but still thin, drained, and also covered with a lot of ticks.  He was pretty empty and we weren’t sure how much fight this guy had in him, but he DID.
Given ample food and dental care, Rudy is looking amazing in this photo after only seven weeks.
He’s looking even better now.  Rudy is another gentle soul, and he’s an incredibly hunky guy.  We were told he was ridden and used as a barrel horse.  He has a few more pounds to go, and he has deep heal cracks that are still a work in progress. As soon as he is ready, we’ll continue his evaluation under saddle.
Thank you, Erin G. for sponsoring Rudy’s feed!!

  Gunner is a late teens guy, and thankfully, he was in much better physical condition than his two pals, but he was much less confidant around humans than Amigo and Rudy.  He avoided contact and kept his distance, even at feeding time.
Gunner after nearly two months.  Not a big change physically, but he’s coming along in other ways.
Gunner is slowly gaining confidence, and he seems to want attention, but isn’t sure he should indulge himself.  There’s no hurry; we’ll give him time to rethink his position with humans, and we’ll earn his trust.
Thank you, Carla R. for sponsoring Gunner’s feed and basic care!

More Updates


Blue continues to do well.  We are continuing to fend off some persistent granulation tissue.  We were a little too eager to let Blue be bandage free, and during the storm, the mud and wet, the mud masked his little scarred area, and it must not have been fully healed as after a few days, a bit of proud flesh returned.  It was trimmed and we’re back to bandaging and medicating so it can heal.  We are SO close, but haven’t crossed the finish line, YET!!  This was the lesion after a recent bandage change.  That little upper spot with some blood trickling down.  That little persistent spot!
Blue had a couple very special visitors, our friends Sutter and Harper Rogers from Coppercreek Camp.  Blue LOVES little ones, humans and horses, alike.  If you’ve never heard of this magical place, click on the link and check it out.  I so wish we were closer!!
In case you haven’t seen any of Blue’s before pictures (or don’t remember what it looked like), take a look at this:
Thank you, Dave F. for sponsoring Blue’s feed and basic care!!


Rascal continues to do well, but is still battling intestinal issues.  She seems perfectly fine, otherwise.  We’ll continue our efforts to bring some normalcy to her belly!  Til’ then, we continue to love on this silly, sassy, filly.  Love her!
Ohhhh, guess who’s turning ONE in just a few days??  April 5th to be exact, Lil’ Ms. Rascal has a birthday.  Rascal asked me to let you know she LOVES toys in case you’d like to pick one up for her at Lees’ Feed.  She said you could also order her one from  AmazonSmile and SEND HER A GIFT?  If you shop Amazon Smile, be sure to select “All About Equine Animal Rescue” as your Charity to support.  AmazonSmile donate 0.5% of your purchase back to AAE.
Happy, Happy Birthday sweet girl!!

This cute little guy finally had his gelding surgery.  He had a stubborn testicle that refused to drop.  Thankfully, it was not all the way up in his abdomen, so surgery wasn’t as difficult as it could have been.  We need an updated photo of this darling lil’ guy.  This is a few months ago.
Foley is a really great little guy.  He’s smart, willing, respectful and calm.  He does all the basics well, including loading and unloading  He will not be a big guy.  Mom was under 14hh.  He is well on his way to recovery from surgery and looking for his forever home.  He’s ready, are you??
Thank you, Janis J. for sponsoring Foley’s feed and basic care!!

Check out the new arrivals!

We did say it has been a busy 2018.  More to come, 
but here are new intakes at AAE since the January Seven.

Meet Cahill

Cahill came to AAE as the result of a family health crisis and related time and financial challenges.  We were told he is 19-20 and was a riding horse.  His initial bloodwork looked good, he tested negative for Cushings, and he is scheduled for hoof and dental care in coming weeks.  Stay tuned for more on this sweet ol’ guy.
Thank you, Beverly W. for sponsoring Cahill’s feed and basic care!!

Dream Catcher 5

These five young gals came to AAE as part of our continued efforts to support DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary as they continue their recovery efforts after the long illness and passing of their Executive Director.  These are young girls, estimated between 2 and 6 years old, and they made a stop at the Monty Roberts International Learning Center before coming to AAE.

Mare/Filly Pair

This ol’ girl had been living in the hills at DreamCatcher, and she came down to the barn to foal.  Because the weather was harsh with snow, wind, and cold, AAE offered them a more mild climate to settle in and get familiar with humans before adoption.
This mama and filly each need a sponsor ($100/month) to cover their feed and basic care.

Fosters Needed for 

Senior/Companion Horses 

  Once again, we’ve had a huge influx of calls from people needing help with senior horses, but we don’t have enough space/resources for more senior horse.  We have a wait list. Foster homes are one way we can increase our capacity.  Can you help?  Do you have a lonely horse?….an empty stall or pasture?..or simply a love for senior or special needs horses?  Costs associated with a foster horse are tax deductible.
If you don’t want to adopt, we offer a long term foster program for select senior/companion  horses to help support additional space needs for senior horses.  Again, there are potential tax benefits with fostering.
For more information, please contact wendy@allabouteq
