The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

We are exploring interest in participating in the Veteran’s Day Parade in Auburn on Saturday, November 10, 2018.

If AAE participates in support of our Veteran’s, who would like to join us?

Please email wendy@allaboutequine.org with a head count.

Remember Beau??

Beau is an elder Arabian gent about 28, and he came to AAE after his elder owner could no longer provide care, and his family caregiver was relocating out of state.  Beau had been with his family almost all of his life.  He was much loved, but his family may not have understood the need for continued dental care, even when horses are old and have only a few teeth.  We know they only wanted to best for him and we are glad we were able to help. With so many horses in need, that is not always the case.
After much needed dental, hoof care, sheath cleaning, vaccines, deworming, and a lot of love from volunteers, look at him now….

Beau is at the tail end of his refeeding program, and he is available for adoption.  Beau is a lovely ol’ guy.  He loves attention and really enjoys a long grooming session.  He was ridden a lot in his younger days.  His last riding relationship was a couple years ago with a 12 year old girl in a lease situation.  We were told it was a great relationship, but not much more about his girl’s experience or what activities they did, only that he rode very well for his age.
In his younger years, Beau was part of a three horse team that rode across the US on the Pony Express Trail.  He rode about 800 of the 2000 miles.  About seven years ago, he had a bout of laminitis/founder, but thankfully, he recovered very well. Dr. Stolba provided care for this guy back then, but unfortunately, she hadn’t seen him for about three years when he arrived at AAE.  He didn’t appear to have been trimmed in a while, but updated radiographs showed no obvious changes in his hooves since his episode seven years ago.  He was a tad tender footed with thin soles, so we had shoes placed on his fronts for now.
Beau is current with vaccines, deworming, and hoof and dental care. He has very good ground manners, he ties and stands for the farrier.  With a long history of riding, he should load and trailer fine, but hasn’t yet been tested since he arrived.  He was tested for Cushing’s and results were negative.  Because he has only a few teeth left, he needs a strictly pelleted diet and with feed that is appropriate for a horse that has foundered.  His future housing should not be in a green, grassy pasture.
Beau is looking for a new home where he will be doted on and pampered like the good ol’ guy that he is.  He might have some light riding in his future, but priority should be a solid companion home, and the riding should be a bonus (not a requirement).  Beau should NOT be an only horse. During his time with AAE, he has bonded tightly to his buddies, at least a couple other horses might be best.  He gets anxious when he is in his paddocks and his buddies leave, are taken out/away or wander away from him.  He does fine when he is taken out and away from his paddock.
