It’s AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018: 

Waylon

AAE welcomed Waylon, one of three young geldings, from the DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary in June 2017 to support DreamCatcher’s recovery and herd reduction efforts after the long illness and passing of their Executive Director, Barbara Clarke in November of 2016.  Waylon was introduced to humans in May 2017 when the boys were separated from the herd and castrated.
Waylon is a 2015-ish captive born mustang gelding.  He had minimal handling, but accepted humans quite readily.  He was a calm, confident, and social guy that quickly took to grooming and hanging with two leggers.  He was sweet, calm, confident, and willing.  He could also be a little pushy at times.

Waylon was adopted in October 2017, then returned to AAE in May 2018 after being diagnosed with EPM.  Waylon was treated with a three month course of Marquis, and he responded very well.

In October, he was re-evaluated by our vet, and he had no signs of neurologic deficits.  Waylon is a super nice, big guy, and he is looking for his forever home.  He is a big, playful, people-loving boy.  He is curious, willing, and very active.  Due to his EPM history, he was cleared for casual/light riding.  He is not considered a prospect for competition, endurance, or hard/heavy riding.

Waylon is about 15.1hh and still growing.  He is current with vaccines, deworming, and hoof and dental care, and he has a microchip in place.

‘Tis the Season, time to join AAE every day this month as we share stories straight from the barn to show how your support has helped horses in 2018.   This year was very special, and there are so many stories to be thankful for!
As we count down to 2019, please help us prepare for another year of helping horses.  Your donations will assure we have ample funding for veterinary care to
help horses in need as we move into a new year.

Give Now and Help a Horse this Season!

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!
