Thank you all for your continued support!

New horses and the story of an intake:  Sawyer and Jasper

Sawyer and Jasper recently came to AAE when their owner fell on very hard times.  They are super sweet, pony-sized kids coming three this Fall.

Sawyer

Sawyer’s was born November 2016, and her dad was a Spanish QH and mom QH/Shetland.  At intake, Sawyer weighed in at about 825 pounds and measured about 13.1 hh.  Sawyer is a fancy lil’ gal that came in with a bit of a spoiled/pushy ‘tude.
Sawyer is learning her manners, as hard as it may be because she really loves her human friends.  Sawyer is easy to bring in from pasture, and she’s lower gal on the totem pole in the herd.  She is enjoys grooming and lots of attention.  She has been trimmed once and is learning to stand patiently and give her hooves freely.  Sawyer is improving her ground skills, working in the round pen and will soon be learning to ground drive with a surcingle.
She’s taking it all in stride.  This little character will make a fun project for an experienced person.  Sawyer is available for adoption and will be ready to go to her new home after her dental appointment next week.  She is current with vaccines, deworming, and hoof care.  She has a microchip in place, and her DNA results are in ( 1st Galiceno, 2nd Quarter Horse, 3rd Belgian Draft).
If you are interested in adopting Sawyer, please visit her page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.

Jasper

Jasper was born October 2016, and his dad was a Spanish QH and mom a registered Paint.  At intake, he weighed in at only 700 pounds and measured 14.0 hh.  Jasper is a laid back kinda guy that came in a little bit shy.  He was thin, and his hooves were long and flared.  He had not been gelded, so we made immediate plans to take resolve that “issue”.
Jasper was warming up quickly with only a minor setback when his personal space was invaded, and we learned he was hiding both of his gems.  Wait, it wasn’t Jasper that had the setback, it was AAE when we learned he was a bilateral cryptorchid.  Neither of his testicles had descended.  To be sure he actually had testicles and wasn’t magically gelded by some equine angel in the night, we confirmed with a blood test.  “He does have testicles”, just what we really didn’t want to hear.  Needless to say, Jasper made his way to Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center for brain surgery, I mean castration.  Thankfully, surgery went well, and Jasper recovered nicely.
Jasper has come around to enjoy humans with little concern.  He still needs to build a bit of confidence, but all in all, he’s a sweetheart of a guy.  He’s learning his manners, and he’s learning patience, relatively well.  Jasper, the lil stud colt that he was, had some inherently strong, manly beliefs.  He’s slowly losing his enthusiasm around other horses, and he’s learning to be more respectful in the presence of others.  He has not made a transition to pasture yet, because he still has some belief that he’s “the man”, a stud, and he really likes the girls.  When recently introduced to pasture, he thought he’d show Blue up a bit.  Oops, not how we thought that introduction would go.  For now, he’ll spend more time appreciating the herd and pasture from the other side of the fence.  In the meantime, Jasper is enjoying grooming and attention.  He has been trimmed twice and is still learning to stand patiently and give his hooves freely; however, there was big improvement with the second trim.
Now that Jasper has recovered from surgery, he has been improving his ground skills, working in the round pen, and he will soon be learning to ground drive with a surcingle and wear a saddle.  He has some growing to do.  He’s filling out nicely, but seems delayed a bit due to malnourishment early on.  Like Sawyer, he’s taken it all in stride.  Jasper will also make a fun project for an experienced person.  Jasper is available for adoption and will be ready to go to his new home after his dental appointment next week.  He is current with vaccines, deworming, and hoof care.  He has a microchip in place, and his DNA results are in ( 1st Quarter Horse, 2nd Turkoman, 3rd Holsteiner).

If you are interested in adopting Jasper, please visit his page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.

The Story of an Intake:

While Sawyer’s intake was unusually straightforward, she’s waiting for her person to find her.  She’s getting an education and hoping the next inquiry is for her.  Might you be hers?
If you are interested in adopting Sawyer, please visit her page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.
Jasper is a great example of the many needs and challenges encountered with each intake.
He is also available for adoption and waiting to find his person.   If you are interested in adopting Jasper, please visit his page for more info and submit an Adoption Inquiry.
Stay tuned for the rest of the story, The Story of an Intake.

It’s been incredibly busy the last few months.
We wrapped up our Boots and Bling event, and we’re so grateful to everyone that volunteered, donated, purchased tickets, attended, bid on auction items, and supported the event in every way.  Thanks to  your support, we sold out (over 400 tickets), and with immense gratitude for the folks at the Western States Horse Expo, we had a fun-filled event at the fabulous Murieta Equestrian Center.  With your support, we raised approximately $55,000 to support AAE operations and assure ongoing rescue activities!

More GOOD news!

Barney Update!

Remember Barney?  He came in back in January from a family distress situation. He was sickly when he arrived due to a respiratory issue and chronic diarrhea.
Barney was slowly transitioned from a hay diet (2 flakes am and pm) to a pellet diet.  Today, he’s eating about 56 pounds of senior pellets per day.
Today, he’s feeling much better,
especially after his spa day!
Barney is grateful for everyone’s support in making his way back to good health.
Barney’s story is made possible, in part,
by all who support our annual fundraiser…..
Will you join us to assure we can share more stories like Barney’s?

It’s time for some GOOD news!

Blue Update!

Remember Blue?  Our Virginia Range mustang that came in with a large growth over his hind fetlock?
This week, he finished his last treatment with cautious optimism!
He is healed and only a scar remains.
Blue’s a gem!  A tough one, but we’ve learned
a lot from this guy!
Keep your fingers crossed for this lil’ guy.
Blue sends huge thanks for everyone’s support in helping him with the growth removal and the long series of treatments and procedures.  It’s been a long road, but gratifying in the end to be able to see it through and never give up!
Special thanks to Drs. Stolba and Errico, and the Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center team for always being here when Blue needed them.

Our most important fundraising event is coming soon.

Our Hearts Are Heavy, Again…and Again

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Calico Girl!

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.” – Eleanor Roosevelt. Strength, courage, and confidence defined Calico Girl.  This brave filly stood strong one last time after suffering a catastrophic injury late yesterday afternoon. Although we’re not sure how it happened, the herd had been frolicking in the pasture, and we’re guessing she took an awkward fall on slippery ground.  She fractured the head of her right femur beyond repair.  There were no options for her but to ease her pain.
Calico Girl came to AAE with her mom, Gypsy, in April 2018.  They traveled the road from She was just weeks old. She was an incredibly confident and proud little gal.  Her every move was bold and brave.  Calico Girl protected her mom from the fierce humans at AAE in the cutest way.  She’d stand tall and proud, the half-pint she was, and give a look that said “Stay back Mom, I got this”.  Really, it took her a long time to trust humans, even though she met them very early on.  She wanted, but resisted in such a sassy way.
Really, she was a clone of her mom.  She looked, she acted, she oozed of Gypsy.  Ironically, Calico Girl came to AAE DreamCatchers Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary for safety from the harsh winter elements.  These things aren’t supposed to happen here, and not to such a young life. Calico Girl has so much love and life to give.

Only recently was she really letting go and proudly enjoying human interaction.  Today, we’ll all grieve for what could have been, an exceptional, athletic, bold and brave life…that will never be.  How?  Why?  We’ll never know.  We only know this sweet girl was loved by many and will be missed by more.

Many of you know our horses that arrive without a name are given Country artist inspired names.  Calico Girl’s name didn’t follow that tradition.  There’s a reason.  Cali’s mom, Gypsy, was adopted from the Broken Arrow (aka Indian Lakes) holding facility in Fallon, Nevada, in May of 2010 and placed at DreamCatchers to live out her life as a mustang.  Gypsy had lived in Warm Springs Canyon, one of five Herd Management Areas in the Calico Mountains of Nevada, collectivey called the Calico Complex.  In late 2009/early 2019,  BLM captured 1,922 horses in “the Calico Gather”.  Because we learned of Gypsy’s history (thank you, Maya), and she had to leave DreamCatchers, we wanted baby’s name to be special.  Gypsy’s adopter, Elyse, decided “her name is “Calico Girl” in honor of, and to help us all/her future people all know and remember the wild horses. She is a proud descendant of hearty, lovely horses.”
Run free, bold and beautiful girl. You weren’t supposed to leave us so soon!
We’ll miss you, Cali Girl.  You will be remembered in our hearts, youngest one.

Another special friend to remember!

Many of you have followed our version of “Where’s Waldo?”.  Cupcake was AAE’s version of where ever you are, there she was.  Cupcake came to AAE back in 2008, before AAE was AAE…before horses…before just about anything else.  She was about 3 or 4, and one of three goats that brought life to a dead pasture and new life to a once shuttered barn.
 
Cupcake had her castle in “The Farm”.  She’d sit upon her throne, with a vision of a tilted crown on her head.  She was royalty around AAE.  She had a sore under her tail that persisted, and back in late 2017, it was biopsied.  Sadly, it was a squamous cell carcinoma.  It was between her rectum and vulva, in an area it could not easily be removed.  It was likely to progress rapidly.  Cupcake was not phased by the big “C”.  She was happy, healthy, and had a never ending appetite.  Right about this time, she became an escape artist.  She loved people.  She loved food.  She loved to visit the barn at feeding time and eat everyone’s food.  Since her days were numbered, the only thing to do was to name her Queen of the barn and give her authority to do anything and everything she wanted, without limits.
Well, maybe a few. Cupcake quickly became a curiosity.  She was dog-like.  She loved grooming.  She loved people.  She loved people food.  What could it hurt?
You’d think a big belly ache would follow a bucket like that, right?  Funny girl.  She grazed, she tasted, she was satisfied.  Cupcake was as sweet as her name, and she would eat anything, even cupcakes.  Day went by.  Weeks went by.  Months went by.  The “sore” grew, and grew, and time passed.   As the sore grew, the question of the day, often silent and often spoken, was “How is Cupcake today?”  Quality of life was number one.  As long as she was happy, otherwise healthy, with a good appetite….for food and life, all was good.  As long as she visited the at feeding time (am and pm), all was good.

Cupcake was everywhere, and she’d help herself to whatever was served to her….or she looked like it was served for her, good or bad.  In time, she’d wander down to the barn and join a circle of friends as if she was participating in the conversation.  Over the last few months she forged a special friendship with a new volunteer, Marina.  It started with just a “bite”, and became a routine, it seemed a daily offering, not only from Marina, but from all the volunteers.  Popcorn, Doritos, Sun Chips….all kinds of human foods, bought specially for Cupcake.  Bags of chips had her name.

This sore became an eyesore.  It was ugly, it was all “C”.  Yet, this gal remained unphased for nearly a year.  It grew, as did our love for her, this amazing lil’ goat.  She ate, she wandered, she visited the barn regularly.  She never missed a meal.  Sadly, the day came a few weeks ago when she pottied and she strained.  Damn!  A few days later, it happened again.  Quality of life was number one.  The day had come.  The dreaded call was made, and “the” appointment was set with several days for everyone to say good bye to this special girl, with the promise we’d make a special trip to ease any pain.
Cupcake never skipped a beat until that very day.  On her day, she was ready.  She didn’t visit the barn.  How blessed could we be that she chose the same day.
Wander and eat to your hearts content, sweetest one.
You’re brush is here any time you’d like to visit.
We’ll miss you, Cali Girl.  You will be remembered in our hearts, youngest one.

Forever In Our Hearts, Beau

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Ol’ Beau, Forever in Our Hearts!

Oh, Ol’ Beau, you’ll be forever in our hearts!  Yesterday, we helped Beau across the Rainbow Bridge after he experienced a very painful colic.  Pain meds were only able to fend of pain for a short period; fortunately, long enough that he was examined and transported to LBEMC for further evaluation.  He was diagnosed with a strangulating intestine, likely from a fatty tumor (lipoma) that wrapped around part of his intestine causing a blockage and cutting off the blood supply.
Sadly, due to the pain, surgery was the only option, but it was not a good option for several reasons (e.g. his age, arthritic hips, blood results, stress, etc.).  It is always hard to make “that” decision; but it seems it was the best choice under the circumstances.
Our ol’ guy is no longer in pain, running free…

Beau was just shy of his 29th birthday, a beautiful Arab and Arab through and through.He loved attention, but really seemed to expect attention (in a funny way).  Love on him all you want, but don’t expect any in return, LOL.  He wasn’t the affectionate type, usually.  On occasion, he’d slip and forget life was all about him.  Ok, that’s all funny stuff.  With the exception of anxious moments when his neighboring buddy was moved, Beau was one of the more dependable, go to horses around here.  He’d stand quietly when attended to.  He enjoyed being loved on.  That was gift enough, knowing you’d made his day a better one.  Knowing he’d enjoyed your offerings….a brush and hoof pick or just a “Hi Beau”.

I know I will miss just that, being able to send him a “Hi Beau-Beau” across the arena.

Though we have so many happy horses and forever home stories, these are the most difficult, yet still important stories to share.  Every horse is important, even the old ones.
They seem to be the most easily forgotten, tossed aside, and left behind.
Thankfully, before coming to AAE, Beau was much loved by his family, but the family situation was changing, and his owner could no longer physically provide his care.
Fortunately, we were able to welcome him at AAE.  Sadly, he wasn’t able to find his own person to share his golden years, but fortunately, he found his way into the hearts of so many AAE volunteers, and he found lots of love and adoration.
We’ll miss you, Beau.  Don’t forget all of your AAE pals, we won’t forget you.

LoneStar, Your Last Horse Helped In 2018

 Donate Today!

It’s AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018:

Lonestar

Because of your support, we were able to help one more.   LoneStar is AAE’s last intake of 2018.   LoneStar came from an elderly owner whose health was declining, and he was having a difficult time managing his care.  LoneStar was his wife’s horse; she passed about three to four years ago.
 He is a hefty, well-fed guy, but his hooves and teeth hadn’t been tended in quite some time. First stop was the farrier.  Much improved!
He’ll be the first vet check of 2019 this week, his teeth will be floated, and it looks like we’ll do a little blood work.
Soon, this guy will be back in tip top shape.
LoneStar is a mid-20’s Morgan gelding about 15.1 hh.  This guy is a big, sweet love bug.  He is under evaluation, and more info will be available soon.  Stay tuned.

2 days until 2019, YOUR donation means more horses can be helped!  Donate Today!

 

‘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!

A Special Tribute

0

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

It’s AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018:

Apologies, this was supposed to go out yesterday,
but time got away from us.
As we say goodbye to 2018, we wanted one last tribute to honor three very special horses we lost this year,
three of AAE program horses:  Marshmallow, Kasey, and Kaya.

Marshmallow

Our amazing little Marshmallow was helped across the rainbow bridge after a sudden decline with his health.  When he came to AAE in March 2014, he had been sick, and past owner’s efforts to help him failed.  After a plethora of diagnostics, he was diagnosed with either stomach cancer or irritable bowel disease. He responded tremendously well to medication (steroids), and he recovered quite well.  He had a fabulous four and a half years with us at AAE, and he brought smiles and happiness to SOOO many people.  Sadly, he started having occasional bouts of colic over the summer, and in November, he declined rapidly.  It was quite obvious he was not going to get better this time.  He made his last trip to Loomis Basin in the back of “his” van.  It was his first trip in “Marshy’s Van”, a mini van we’d just acquired for transporting him and other mini’s to retirement homes, youth events, and outreach activities. We miss this little man so much!

Kasey

Kasey came to AAE with his buddies Angus and Daisy in April of 2016.  Kasey was another magically gentle giant that befriended another herd of humans while at AAE.  His kind nature and gentle soul put everyone at ease in his massive presence.  Kasey battled hoof abscesses off and on almost the entire time he was here.  Usually, they’d resolve relatively quickly.  Until the last one.  Kasey fought valiantly.  After what was looking to be a long, successful battle; inexplicably, his coffin bone rotated severely in a matter of days.  As uncomfortable as he was, he gave his all.  His pain was simply too much to ask him to endure any longer.  

We miss this big guy a ton!
Click on the link for the rest of Kasey’s Story

KAYA

Kaya was another wonderful resident at AAE.  She was the go to girl for kids, parties, camps, and any time we needed a calm, quiet, and trustworthy horse.  Kaya came to AAE in February 2014 through another organization after she was saved from an auction.  She was lame.  She had served someone well for years, then she was dumped at an auction where known kill buyers shop.  Fortunately, she was saved, and with time and good hoof care, her lameness resolved.  Sadly, she colicked in January, then again in February, when we learned she also had a diaphragmatic hernia. A portion of her intestines had pushed into her chest cavity.  It would have been quite a surgery to repair both issues, and there was also a stone in her intestines that complicated things further.  It was simply too much to put her through and not the best of chances for recovery.  We had to say good bye.
This sweet girl is missed so much.
Click on the link for more about Kaya.
Thanks to your support, Marshy, Kasey, and Kaya were able to live out their lives at AAE with lots of love, and so many youth and adults were able to share the wonder of horses.

Where Would Yours Go?

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

Jesse and Jengo

These two boys came to AAE after the unexpected death of their owner left them alone, and family was strained by providing care because they lived an hour away.  Jesse and Jengo are two younger mustang geldings that are currently under evaluation.
Jesse and Jengo recently finished quarantine,
and we’re still getting to know them.
They’ve scheduled for hoof and dental care, as well as vaccines, deworming, and microchips.  Stay tuned for more info about these guys.
Sadly, too often we get calls from families who have lost a loved one, and they’ve left a horse(s) behind.  Often times, family doesn’t have the resources or experience to care for a horse(s), and they are burdened by physical and financial responsibilities.
Do you know what would happen to your horse(s) if something happened to you?  Have you set aside some funding to assure they’ll be taken care of?  It’s important to have those hard discussions, and make plans for unexpected emergencies.
Thanks to your support and foster care, two more horses in need have been helped.

4 days until 2019, YOUR donation means more horses can be helped!  Donate Today!

Rascal, A Little Miracle Thanks to You

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

Rascal Update!

This little Rascal faced a lot of challenges from her first moments on Earth! AAE’s call for help with Rascal came on April 5, 2017.  DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary was in transition after the long illness and passing of their Executive Director, Barbara Clarke, in November of 2016.  We are so happy they reached out for this little gal!
She is as special as they come.
Rascal was just hours old when her mom scaled a six foot paddock and left her behind.  She was located over five hours away, so we mobilized and met in the middle in Reno to pick her up.  She was very weak, and couldn’t get up on her own, so our first stop was Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center.  She was hospitalized.
The initial outlook was good until her blood values took a dive in the night.  Fortunately, by morning, she was fighting back.
As it turns out, she was fighting a severe selenium deficiency that caused white muscle disease, which also put her kidneys in distress.
This sweet little filly could not stand up on her own for the first 26 days of her life.
She’d wait patiently for a “boost”.  (This pic is after 26 days, but this is how she’d wait).
Thanks to your support, the excellent care of the staff at LBEMC for 13 days of her life and 24/7 care of dedicated volunteers at AAE for another 13 days, she Rascal was finally able to STAND on her own.
Rascal had several more hurdles along the way including two bouts with c. diff  bacteria causing nasty diarrhea, a large umbilical hernia surgically repaired (after the c. diff resolved), a massive hoof abscess, and a month after hernia repair surgery, chronic diarrhea that lasted for nearly a year.  A plethora of diagnostics were done to rule out the bad guys (it was not another bout of c. diff ), a variety of feed changes, a variety of supplements, a few changes in housing and locations, and various other efforts didn’t resolve the mystery or the runs.  Eventually, pasture life did.
Thanks to her umbilical hernia, she was often confused for a gelding.
This was surgically repaired.
Massive hoof abscess that rattled everyone, but we were all grateful
when it finally exposed it’s ugly self.
Chronic diarrhea, blood tests, abdominal ultrasound, and a variety of diagnostics couldn’t get to the “bottom” of it.

Looking gorgeous as ever, and still hiding the chronic diarrhea very well.  She had an adoption pending resolution of the diarrhea that never resolved.  Adoption fell through, but adopter fell madly in love with another cutie pie.  Rascal just wasn’t ready to leave.

Today, she is healthy and thriving, and most significantly, she passes normal poop.
For Rascal (and all of us), that’s reason to celebrate.
That being said, due to her history of white muscle disease, there is potential her muscles were compromised, so she is not considered a prospect for hard work (e.g. endurance, performance work, competition, or anything that might be too demanding on her systems).  Though she is very active in the herd and she runs up and down the sloped pasture at AAE, she is looking for a home where she can learn to become a casual, easy going trail horse or some other lighter activity.

Rascal is a gorgeous gal.  She loves people, is a bit spoiled, and she will need a confident handler to maintain boundaries.  She halters, leads, and is good with her feet, but can be a little impatient with the farrier.  She is ready for her own bff in her forever home.

Beau Needs A Santa!

0

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

unnamed-1

 

 

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

Beau

Beau came to AAE in mid-July when his aging owner was no longer able to care for him, and his family caretaker was moving out of state.  Beau is a 1990 Arabian gelding.  He was a truly beloved companion to the family, he had been with them his entire life, and he had carried many a rider on his back.  Still, his condition was saddening.

It was a bit eye-opening when Beau arrived.  He was a bit on the emaciated side, and he was “empty”.  Dr Stolba came to check him out and drew blood to evaluate his “systems”. His diet had been four scoops of senior pellets (AM and PM), about 20-25 pounds a day. You would think plenty for this lil guy, right? You could tell immediately simply eating was a challenge.  He chewed very gingerly, and food fell all over around the trough.

Sadly, when Dr. Stolba opened his mouth, the exasperated sigh was palpable.  Beau did not have many teeth, and the ones he had were much overgrown, some loose and one so long it was pushing into the roof of his mouth causing an ulcer.  He could not close his mouth to chew.  It’s no wonder the poor ol’ guy looked like he did; he couldn’t eat. Four larger teeth were extracted, one so sharp it could cut paper.  The few remaining back teeth were floated, and he was finally able to eat comfortably.
Boy, did he enjoy it.  Now it seems he’s eating for two.

Moving on to the other end, Beau’s sheath got some much needed attention, and he was beyond relief when a rock sized bean was removed. It didn’t take long to see the brightness return to Beau’s eyes and a little pep in his step.

Beau recovered very well and slowly redeveloping his svelte lil’ bod!
Well, does svelte have fat pads?  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, when he arrived at AAE, she hadn’t seen him for a few years.  His hooves didn’t appear to have been trimmed for a while.  Updated radiographs showed no obvious changes in his hooves since his episode seven years ago.  He had thin soles, and he was a tad tender footed, so he had shoes placed on his fronts.

Beau is current with vaccines, deworming, and hoof and dental care.  He has a microchip in place.  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 loaded 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 a diet 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 with a light rider 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 neighbors, so a home with 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 away from his paddock.

Skye’s the Limit!

0

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

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

Skye

Skye is a beautiful Arabian mare that came to All About Equine from a former Arabian breeding ranch in March of 2015 after the last member of the family passed away. She is estimated to be about 16 years old (per teeth).  She lived her entire life in large, grassy pastures that backed up to the Cosumnes River.  It didn’t seem she’d had any care for several years.  Skye was living with three other mares when we got the call.
She was social, but timid.
As a result of Skye’s neglect prior to coming to AAE, she experienced chronic laminitis.  She was not lame when she came in, but she had very long toes.  Radiographs showed she had developed a very slight tipping (ski tip) of her coffin bone.  She has not shown any signs of lameness while at AAE.  She was cleared for light/casual riding by vet, with the caveat that she might need shoes.
Skye spent several weeks at the Monty Roberts International Learning Center (MRILC) where she participated as a project horse during MRILC courses.  She was socialized, learned basic groundwork, and she was introduced to ground driving and started under saddle (light work, no rider).
Not long after she returned to AAE from MRILC, Skye was adopted (August 2015).  She came back to AAE earlier this year, in July 2018, after her adopter felt she wasn’t getting what she needed.  Though he loved her, he felt she deserved more.  While away, Skye got a ton of groundwork, and she was ridden a handful of times in an arena.  Per prior owner, she did better with an experienced, smaller rider.  He also thought he might be too heavy for her and worried about her hooves, but he said she never showed any signs of lameness.

Skye has grown into a very sweet, willing, mild-mannered mare (with humans), and she loves grooming and attention.  She is mare-ish in a herd environment.

Skye is up to date with vaccinations, deworming, and hoof and dental care.  She had a micro-chip in place.  Skye recently (July 2018) tested positive for insulin resistance, and she is given a daily supplement (ThryoVet) with her feed.
She is on an orchard grass only diet.
