Big Barney’s says, It’s Not Over Yet! There’s Still Time to Give Big!!

You are giving big today, and we are so grateful. This is the spirit that changes lives! We are so close to our goal, with about $2000 to go, and if you give more, we’ll add another load of hay to the list!

Barney is another fan favorite. He came to AAE back in January 2019 with a bundle of issues. Barney was underweight by 250 to 300 pounds, he had respiratory issues, he had an intestinal issue, and he had some basic care needs that hadn’t been met.

He rebounded quickly. At one point, he was eating 54 pounds of pellets a day. Now, he’s a pretty easy keeper and takes in 15 to 20 pounds of pellets a day. Barney likes his girls, too. At any given moment, if you see ol’ Sierra in the pasture, Barney is usually right by her side. Poor mare, there are days you can see her thinking….”can I please just have a day to myself???”

For those that don’t know, Barney is a 23 (-ish) year old Belgian Draft Horse! He’s 17.0 hh and weighs in at nearly 1,500 pounds. His kind eye and gentle giant ways have made him a volunteer favorite. When he arrived at 20-ish, we knew he was well into his golden years, and we were lucky to have a sanctuary spot for him. Now at 23-ish, he’s upping the average life span for drafts.

Barney has a current need we are exploring. As many of you know, AAE volunteers are the eyes, ears, and voices for the horses in the program (and beyond). One day not so long ago, a very observative volunteer noticed Barney had streams of water coming out of his nostrils while he was drinking from a trough. With the help of a scope, our docs discovered his epiglottis is displaced. Unfortunately, due to a few challenges with equipment that day, we couldn’t get to the cause. We’ll know more after another scope. There are at least a couple possibilities, one is a bit easier to fix than the other. If it’s on the good side, a reasonably easy surgical procedure can help him. If not, he’s not a good candidate for the other surgery due to his age, size, and breed. So, keep your fingers crossed for a good outcome for this big guy. Your help today helps us provide care needed to give horses like Barney the best we can.

Big Day for Big Barney, right? Well, he thinks every day is a big day. For now, he and Sierra will head off for an evening stroll, leaving us with a great rear view! Love those big butts!!

Barney says thank you for helping him when his life looked so grim. You picked him up and brought him back to a good place, and he wouldn’t have found is girl, Sierra if you hadn’t. He’s cheering you on to Give Big and help him, help others. We’re so close to our goal! Help us cross that line! Donate, share the link, share his story, and share your love of horses.

Jennings says “On Your Mark, Get Ready, It’s Time to Go, Give!!”

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Our gratitude for your support is immense! Thank you! Your support is changing lives, one horse at a time!! Super great news, we’ve met our match, and as we write, we are more than halfway to our goal with $19,385, and we’re narrowing the gap to $25,000.

Jennings is another special horse that’s here today because of you! He’s still looking for his very special person, too. Are you his forever?

JENNINGS

Jennings is a handsome guy that came to AAE from the same distressed mustang sanctuary situation in the latter part of 2020. Like Chesney, Clare, and Teea, the sanctuary had cared for him (and many more), for about 20 years before falling on hard times. The horses were living in desert conditions. Because a big storm took out portions of perimeter fencing on the property years before, most were in their own small stalls (24′ x 24′ at most), each with a small shelter (roof only). No turn out, no attention. Because Jennings had been ridden in the past (prior to landing at the sanctuary) and was readily halterable unlike some, he got privileges. Though he was in a stall when we first met, the next time, we learned he was in a rotation of horses that roamed the property and had access to a stack of hay. Not only was on the thin side and past due for basic care, he had a sizable and uncomfortable looking growth on the side of his sheath that urgently needed veterinary attention.

Jennings is a 2005 BLM mustang. He’s goofy, he’s curious, he’s playful, and he’s a character! He’s really a big personality. Though he’d like you to think he is, he’s not the most confident guy. He also loves the girls, and he will protect his girl fiercely (whomever she is at the time). Though he’s pretty good when taken from the herd, he doesn’t much appreciate his girl being taken from the herd (for grooming, hoof care, vet exam, etc.). He really enjoys attention, but has moments of insecurity that need a handler who is a bit more experienced to understand.

From the time we first met Jennings until we picked him and the others up two weeks later, the growth had doubled in size. And from the time we got him to AAE and the vet saw him until the biopsy results results came, it had doubled again. We confirmed it was a squamous cell carcinoma, and it definitely needed to be removed. Not only was it likely painful, but it was a fly attractant extraordinaire. Fortunately, surgical removal was successful, and we were elated to know that Jennings was left with clean margins around the prior growth.

Playful, charismatic, hilarious, that’s Jennings. He’s usually easy peasy to halter, lead, farrier, trailer, etc. Saddle or bridle him, no worries. Usually. Add a rider, and he gets a little less confident, a little less “usually”. That said, we really believe with the right person, this guy can shine, and the way he defends his girls so fiercely, we think he’ll care for his person just the same, if he’s given the time, patience, and effort he so deserves. Does that sound like a match for you?

He’s so playful in the herd, and sometimes he’s really a pest. He chases, he nips, he instigates, and he raises the bar. He and Ryder have a bromance going, and he even gets our senior, bitchy-broad (oops, did I say that) Bonnie to be playful in his games. My goodness, she rears tall in her antics with this silly guy, and it’s hard to believe that she’s in her 20s, but she sure gets it goin’ and gives it back! The right home would have another horse with a similarly big personality, so their playful antics can go on…. and on … and on! You won’t be bored with this guy, that’s for sure!

Jennings is still waiting for that home of his own. If you have experience with mustangs, are looking to make a special bond, and you have another playful horse, you might be the one he’s looking for!

Jennings so appreciates the opportunity you gave him for a better life! He says it’s a BIG day, and he knows you have a lot of nonprofits to choose from. He wants to pay it forward by asking you to help us meet our goal and help other horses like him. Donate, share the link, share a story, and share your love of horses.

DONATE

Thanks to so many of you, we’ve met our match, and we are inching toward our goal of raising $25,000 by midnight tonight! We are only a little over $5,000 away, and we have just over 12 hours to go!

Your support today will help with the rising costs of hay, feed, fuel, and other operational needs. We are confident you are going to get us through the finish line however you can: donate, share, share, and share more, spread the word about AAE, and put in a good word for the work we do.

Please consider making a donation to AAE in honor of Jennings!

These Three Girls!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

unnamed-1

As we’re settling into our new home in Pilot Hill, it seems the perfect time to reflect on some of the special horses you have helped over the years.

We are all so very thankful, incredibly grateful, and unbelievably blessed to have your support in making better the lives of so many horses!!

This beautiful trio is still looking for a home. Chesney, Clare, and Teea are so very bonded, the ideal situation is for them to move to a home where they can be together. They are mid-teens and each very unique!

CHESNEY, CLARE, and TEEA

Three red-headed mares, oh my! Chesney, Clare, and Teea came to AAE from a distressed mustang sanctuary situation in the latter part of 2020. The sanctuary had cared for these girls, and many more, for about 20 years before falling on hard times. They were living in desert conditions, each in their own small stall (24′ x 24′ at most), each with a small shelter (roof only). No turn out, no attention. They were in need of basic care, it had been deferred much too long. It was a sad sight, needless to say. Though not a lot of handling, they each wanted to trust, and they trusted enough to follow us quietly onto the trailer, as if they new it was the path that offered the hope of something better, a new beginning.

CHESNEY

Chesney was so incredibly shy and uncertain. She stood firm, but trembled. The fear in her eyes, and the quiver in her body spoke volumes, but she was willing. She allowed a slow reach below her neck and behind her ears to place a halter, then a lead. Slowly, she followed. She tried so hard to understand what was asked and then oblige.

Chesney is a 2006 BLM mustang. She got the works (e.g. dental, hoof care, vaccines, deworming, and a microchip) shortly after arriving at AAE. She’s slowly blossomed since arrival. She’s gaining confidence, and she becoming a greet you in the pasture kinda girl. Chesney still needs to grow some confidence, but she’s come a long way, and with a steady, confident person of her own by her side, she has a ton of potential. She halters, leads, and loads, though not fearlessly. She still needs some patience and reassurance.

Her hooves and body condition have improved immensely, and she’s absolutely gorgeous strutting her stuff with Teea.

CLARE

Clare was a bit more confident. She new humans were her ticket to food. That said, she had her limits, namely, anything around her hind end. Beware! We got one warning, and didn’t test her limits. That said, if we respected her hind end, she was easy peasy. Poor mare had been suffering some gnarly allergies. She had large raised scarred areas on all of her legs, like scar over scar over scar. She had a rogue hoof. It was much longer than the rest, and it sure seemed uncomfortable as it rotated outward when she walked.

Clare is also a 2006 mustang. She also got the works shortly after arrival at AAE (e.g. hoof care, dental care, vaccines, deworming, and a microchip). Her legs were treated with an antibiotic ointment long-term, and they have improved tremendously.

Clare (left) is a sassy one. She’s a mare for sure. Opinionated, strong-willed, and sweet as pie when she wants to be. She’s learning to live in a cooperative way, maybe not with all the other horses, but she’s understanding cooperation among the two-leggers is the way to go. Humor aside, she’s got a really sweet side, and she enjoys being in the company of humans, in the pasture or in a smaller space.

TEEA

Teea was such a red hot mess, a diamond in the rough. She was a pathetic sight with pancakes for front hoofs, and she, too, was so very scared. She trembled, but stood planted while introducing the halter and lead. It took a few times to assure her we meant no harm. Giving her time to understand and patience to earn her trust was enough. As the saying goes, with mustangs, slower is faster. She walked as if she had scuba flippers on her front hooves. If only we had nippers in the trailer, it would have made the long road easier. She loaded fine then, though she’s not so confident loading now.

Teea is a 2007 mustang. She too got the works shortly after arrival at AAE (e.g. hoof care, dental care, vaccines, deworming, and a microchip). Her hooves took a few trims to get them right, but she’s maintaining very well with maintenance trims now.

Teea’s confidence comes from her girls, mostly Chesney. If she loses sight of her, she loses her mind, kinda. It takes a big effort to bring her back to thinking about whats in front of her at hand. She’s getting better with time, but it’s clear, Chesney and Clare are her world. To separate them at this point would be an injustice to the bond they have. Teea is definitely most heavily bonded. With all of the space they have now, where there is one, there are three. They are looking for a home, together. Can you imagine looking out your window and seeing three beautiful redheads??? It would be the perfect ending to their time with AAE.

Chesney, Clare, and Teea are still waiting for that home of their own. If you have experience with mustangs, love the bonds you make with them, and would like to be a fabulous solution for these three big, beautiful personalities, it would be a dream come true for all of us!

No matter what, Chesney, Clare, and Teea appreciate the opportunity you gave them for a better life!

Big Day of Giving is the perfect day to honor them and other horses like them!

DONATE

Gentle reminder, a generous donor has offered to match dollar for dollar, every dollar donated, up to $5,000 for Big Day of Giving from now through midnight tomorrow, May 5! We are just over the halfway point at $2531 since the match was announced. We have just over 24 hours to meet our match!

Our goal for Big DOG is to raise $25,000 to help with the rising costs of hay, feed, fuel, and other operational needs. We are quite a ways from our goal, but we’re confident you are going to help us get there however you can: donate, share, share, or share more, spread the word about AAE, and put in a good word for the work we do.

Please consider making a donation to AAE in honor of the three redheads tomorrow for BDOG, and DOUBLE your impact.

Oh Danny Boy, We Love You So!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

As we’re settling into our new home in Pilot Hill, it seems the perfect time to reflect on some of the special horses you have helped over the years.

Another oldie but goodie is elderman, Danny! This ol’ guy is well known for his sweet demeanor and his hugs.

DANNY

Danny’s story isn’t one of neglect, abandonment, abuse, or poor care. Sadly, it’s one of human health and aging. Danny was loved beyond words. So much, his former owner considered euthanizing him rather than risk him having difficulties transitioning to a new home, ending up in a bad home, or worse, the fear of auctions and the slaughter pipeline. It was an emotional day for all when we picked Danny up and brought him home to AAE.

Danny’s owner’s health was failing, and she was unable to provide ongoing care for him any longer. He knew no other owner, as he was born to her mare. Mama rejected him for four days, and on the fifth day, Mama finally accepted him. Danny spent those four days with his surrogate mom while she held mom and made sure he was able to nurse, initially go get the colostrum he needed. It was a very rocky start, but Danny and his other mom grew a bond like no other. She trained him; she rode him; they competed together. They spent 27 years together until they had to say good bye. Fortunately, the timing was right, and Danny had special people in his life that paved the way for him to get to AAE. He arrived in 2017, and at 27, we knew Danny would spend the rest of his years with us.

You can see the pattern here! Danny loves everyone he meets, and he is very generous with his hugs. Similarly, everyone that meets Danny falls instantly in love the moment he rests his chin on their shoulder. The emotions are palpable! Everyone simply melts when he rests his head on their shoulder.

Danny is another sanctuary resident that helps teach new volunteers how to work around horses. He very much enjoys interacting with humans, and spa days getting groomed. Danny is the most kind, mellow, and affectionate horse we have known, and we are so grateful he is here.

Danny appreciates the kindness you’ve shown him and his herd mates! Big Day of Giving is the perfect day to honor Danny and other horses like him!

DONATE

A generous donor has offered to match every dollar donated for Big Day of Giving from now through May 5 up to $5,000!

Please consider making a donation to AAE in honor of Danny this week for BDOG, and you’ll DOUBLE your impact.

Is Amigo One of Your Favorites!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

unnamed-1

As we’re settling into our new home in Pilot Hill, it seems the perfect time to reflect on some of the special horses you have helped over the years. None is more special than our elderman, Amigo. At 33, he is the grand dad of all the horses enjoying their new views in Pilot Hill.

AMIGO

Amigo came to AAE with two of his pals in mid-January 2018 from a neglect situation. He weighed-in about 850 pounds, and we were told he was 29. As thin as he looks in photos, he was much thinner. His coat was thick with dead like an old shag rug that tried to hide his bony frame. He was started on a slow refeeding program, but despite efforts of a very slow introduction to food, after about a week at AAE, he had a bout of colic.

 

It felt so grim, but this ol’ guy was a warrior. Thankfully, Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center was on site quickly. It wasn’t a bad colic, but he battled through it like the survivor he is! He bounced back up to his like he’d waken from a bad dream, then never looked back. He was also covered with ticks, with a good 150 or so removed and finding more every day for several days, then more each day until they were gone.

A year or so later, he was transported to the vet for another bout with colic and was fortunately able to return home to the herd after a few days. Over the years, he’s had some ups and downs, but this old fart (yes, those that know him, know), has been the bestest gentleman ever to new volunteers learning about horses, and all of our volunteers that care for him every day, come rain, sleet or snow….and the hella hot days, too!

For a multi-tude of reasons: what he went through, his will to survive, his age, his demeanor, his kind and gentle spirit, and not last nor least, the way he acted so terrified at what must have been the first mini horse he’d ever seen, we all fell madly in love with this big oaf and felt AAE should be his last stop. He’s been a resident program/sanctuary horse since. Looking at him now, it’s hard to believe it’s the same horse!

At 33, this beautiful ol’ guy exemplifies how your support helps horses like Amigo. This old man got another chance at life when his world looked so grim. He got love, he got to live like a horse, he was treated with love, kindness, empathy, and respect.

He is an ambassador for horses to everyone that meets him. He is patient, he’s kind, and he’s one of the most trustworthy horses at AAE. He’s is a perfect reminder of how fragile yet resilient horses are. He holds no grudges for humans, even though he wasn’t treated so kind in his prior life, and he gives back so much to everyone he encounters.

Amigo is so grateful to have had your support giving him another chance.

Amigo is so grateful to have had your support. If Amigo’s story resonates with you, please consider making a donation to AAE in honor of Amigo on the Big Day of Giving May 5, if you can. If you don’t want to wait, you can give now.

If his story inspires you to do more, please share his story and how you help horses like Amigo.

It’s National Volunteer Week!

It’s time to shine a lil’ light on all of AAE’s volunteers.

You make a difference for our horses every single day!

Through rain, sleet, and snow, and through the heat you go!

Day in and day out, you contribute more than you know.

Thank YOU for all you do,

YOU are making lives better, one horse at a time!

We are adjusting to many the many changes a new home brings. Unfortunately, it’s not all rainbows and roses… we recently had a positive strangles case with one of our lil ponies, Minnie. She’s been with us for quite some time (more than a year).

We have been on heightened alert with the recent EHM outbreaks in local areas, and we have been extra careful, so it’s really a surprise. In 13 years, we’ve never had a serious contagious disease, and we’ve worked had to keep it at that way!

Minnie was tested out of an abundance of caution due to a cough and fever, but never did we expect a positive result by any means. She’s been a healthy lil’ one from the start, and it’s unlikely she was previously exposed (though not ruled out as potential carrier). She’s doing very well now, and she’ll be scoped tomorrow to flush her gutteral pouches and re-test. You can learn more about Strangles, here.

We have implemented multiple protocols to minimize risk of further exposure, and we are working alongside our vet to keep this under control, as best we can. So far, we’ve had no new cases, an

We have NO idea where it came from. We are diligent with our quarantine practices. We haven’t had any new horses in for over six weeks, and last was a mare that was in quarantine for about six weeks w/a confirmed dental-related (localized) sinusitis issue. She came from a situation where she was the only horse around for 3 to 5 months and hadn’t been off that property.

We haven’t seen any concerns with any of the remaining horses, yet, though one other was tested at the same time with negative results. We are under quarantine until the coast is clear. No horses will be coming in or going out until we are as confident as we can be that we are Strangles-free.

We have not done kill pen rescues for over 10 years. We have not done auction rescue for many years (but haven’t eliminated that option entirely). We can only guess it came in with someone or something. We have had biosecurity measures in place for our volunteers with horses or those involved in horse activities due to the recent outbreaks, as well, so that is always possible, too, but not as likely.

We want you to be aware. We have also notified our volunteers and nearest neighbors with horses.

Free to email with questions, and we will respond as quickly as we can. Please remember, we are almost an entirely volunteer run organization, and right now, we are stretched. Stay healthy and safe, all, and thank you for your support and understanding during this time.

We welcomed Gabby earlier this year after being contacted by a nearby animal control who needed assistance with a skinny mare. Well, skinny was an understatement!

She arrived at AAE very underweight and with some other health concerns, too. In her time here, she has gained 90 lbs so far (and still gaining). She had a chronic sinus infection on her right side due to some dental problems. It’s looking like she will need one, maybe two teeth extracted.

She’s got a ways to go, but this girl’s looking so much better! Gabby’s such a sweetheart, and we look forward to seeing her become healthier and happier in this next chapter of her life!

If you’d like to help with her care, please consider making a one-time donation or sponsor her with a monthly donation.

Need a little refresher on Gabby’s background?

We were told by the animal control officer that the person who had her had rescued her a few months before, but he had cancer and was unable to afford veterinary care because of his own health care costs.

When we arrived to pick her up, we met a very sad, very emaciated, and very stinky (localized sinus infection) older gal. She had a nasty smelling discharge from her right nostril and below her right eye was a large crusty patch. Her teeth needed attention. Though her condition was quite grim, she was so kind and forgiving.

Based on the one-sided nasal and eye discharges, and odor, too, we suspected she had either a tooth infection, a sinus infection, or both. We also found a lip tattoo, but it wasn’t entirely legible. If we’ve guessed right, she was born in Minnesota in ‘98, never raced, and she’s registered as Timber Buck’s Luv.

Gabby is a luv! She loaded into the trailer readily, she traveled well, and she unloaded calmly. She handles easily, too. The sweet gal was vet checked shortly after arrival, blood was drawn, sinus/tooth infection confirmed, and antibiotics started. She had her dental done and some head radiographs, now we’re waiting for to put on a little more weight before surgery. In the meantime, she’s looking better, feeling better, and she’s getting a little sass about her….oh, she’s a mare!

INTRODUCING…

Thank you to everyone who participated in our name auction last week!

The winning bid was made by Nick C. and he picked the name Ballerini (after Kelsea Ballerini) and it fits her perfectly. Thanks, Nick!

Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram if you don’t already. We will be sharing many videos and photos of this adorable lady, for sure.

Ballerini’s Story

In June 2021, we took in two reported pregnant mares as part of a nearby animal services case involving multiple animals. Shortly after arrival, our vet came for exams and ultrasounds. One showed a foal, the other did not. Dr. Stolba estimated mom-to-be was three to four months along, which meant baby was due in February or March. Fast-forward to February 22, 2022 (2/22/22), and mama gave birth to a beautiful filly!

Baby girl is healthy and so is mom. Mom has great maternal instincts, and she is the protector extraordinaire. They have bonded well, and they are doing great.

Meet Our Newest Mare

At the end of February, we were contacted by a nearby animal control who needed assistance with a skinny mare. No one had any background on her. We were told the man who had her had rescued her a few months before, but he had cancer and was unable to afford veterinary care because of his own health care costs.

When we arrived to pick her up, we met a very sad, very emaciated older gal. She had a nasty smelling discharge from her right nostril and below her right eye was a large crusty patch. Her teeth needed attention, too. Though her condition was quite grim, she was so kind and forgiving.

Based on the nasal and eye discharge and odor, we suspected she had either a tooth infection or sinus infection, or both. We also found a lip tattoo, but it wasn’t entirely legible. If we’ve guessed right, she was born in Minnesota in ‘98, never raced, and she’s registered as Timber Buck’s Luv.

She is a luv! She loaded into the trailer readily, she traveled well, and she unloaded calmly. She handles easily, too. She was immediately placed in quarantine as we always do with new intakes. The sweet gal was vet checked shortly after arrival, blood was drawn, sinus/tooth infection confirmed, and antibiotics started. This luv needs to gain some weight and stabilize a bit before she can be sedated to have her teeth checked/floated, radiographs, and possible nasal scope.

Despite her past, she’s a beautiful girl, and we look forward to seeing her blossom.

If you’d like to help us give her a happier and healthier life, please consider making a donation on her behalf.

Important information on the recent outbreak of

Equine herpesvirus myeloencephalopathy (EHM) in California

If you haven’t heard, there has been an outbreak of Equine Herpes Virus-1 (EHV-1) and Equine Herpesvirus Myeloencephalopathy (EHM, which is EHV-1 infection with neurological signs) in California.

If you have horses, are around horses, and/or volunteer at AAE, it’s important to understand how EHV can be transmitted and how to prevent the disease from spreading. See the following information shared from Loomis Basin Equine Medical Centers FB page:

Equine herpesvirus myeloencephalopathy (EHM) has been detected in multiple horses in several counties in California since February.

Equine herpesvirus causes respiratory disease, abortion, neonatal death, and the neurological disease EHM. It spreads in aerosolized secretions, by direct contact, and by contact with surfaces containing infected secretions. Shedding of the virus generally occurs for 7-10 days.

Horse owners must immediately isolate any horses exhibiting neurologic signs and consult their veterinarian; EHM has mandatory State reporting requirements. Owners must practice good biosecurity when they move horses in emergency situations or for veterinary care; avoid other horses and don’t share tack/equipment that hasn’t been properly cleaned and disinfected, including farrier and veterinary equipment.

Additional information on EHM, including updates on current EHV-1 cases and a map of affected areas, please visit the CA Animal Health Branch webpage. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your vet.

In case you missed her story when we shared it earlier this week…

 

In June 2021, we took in two reported pregnant mares as part of a nearby animal services case involving multiple animals. Shortly after arrival, our vet came for exams and ultrasounds. One showed a foal, the other did not. Dr. Stolba estimated mom-to-be was three to four months along, which meant baby was due in February or March. Fast-forward to February 22, 2022 (2/22/22), and mama gave birth to a beautiful filly!

Baby girl is healthy and so is mom. Mom has great maternal instincts, and she is the protector extraordinaire. They have bonded well, and they are doing great.

Important information on the recent outbreak of

Equine herpesvirus myeloencephalopathy (EHM) in California

If you haven’t heard, there has been an outbreak of Equine Herpes Virus-1 (EHV-1) and Equine Herpesvirus Myeloencephalopathy (EHM, which is EHV-1 infection with neurological signs) in California.

If you have horses, are around horses, and/or volunteer at AAE, it’s important to understand how EHV can be transmitted and how to prevent the disease from spreading. See the following information shared from Loomis Basin Equine Medical Centers FB page:

Equine herpesvirus myeloencephalopathy (EHM) has been detected in multiple horses in several counties in California since February.

Equine herpesvirus causes respiratory disease, abortion, neonatal death, and the neurological disease EHM. It spreads in aerosolized secretions, by direct contact, and by contact with surfaces containing infected secretions. Shedding of the virus generally occurs for 7-10 days.

Horse owners must immediately isolate any horses exhibiting neurologic signs and consult their veterinarian; EHM has mandatory State reporting requirements. Owners must practice good biosecurity when they move horses in emergency situations or for veterinary care; avoid other horses and don’t share tack/equipment that hasn’t been properly cleaned and disinfected, including farrier and veterinary equipment.

Additional information on EHM, including updates on current EHV-1 cases and a map of affected areas, please visit the CA Animal Health Branch webpage. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your vet.

Recapping 2021 as We Welcome 2022

In the midst of our move, 2021 is rapidly coming to a close. We’re sad we’ve not been able to share our traditional 31 stories for them month of December, so we thought we’d recap the year to show who you’ve helped in 2021.

Distressed Sanctuary Support to 9

In ongoing support to a distressed sanctuary, AAE took in seven horses (Mila, Rory, Jack, Nash, Dakota, Clay, and Duke) and two pigs over the course of the year, and the sanctuary wound down operations after animal control initially intervened. All but Jack have received much needed dental and hoof care, vaccines, and deworming. They were microchipped and DNA tested, too. Jack is a 12-ish mustang that was never touched (for years) at the sanctuary. Jack had five days of Liberty work with Patrick Sullivan when he visited AAE, then later spent some time at Monty Roberts International Learning Center with Clay and Duke. Jack participated in a mustang gentling program, while Clay and Duke participated in a starting program. Jack is slowly accepting human touch, but he’s still reactive and untrusting with humans. Mila had eye issues that were treated and resolved. Dakota had extensive heel cracks that extended into his coronary band in both hind hooves. On top of that, through his vet exam, we discovered he has no vision in one eye. Rory spent some time with a trainer and worked on a bucking issue. Nash’s needs were met with basic care updates. He’s a very handsome lady’s man. He loves his girls, and he let’s the other’s know it! Clay’s hooves were a bit of a wreck, and finally, after a few trim cycles, they seem to be unfolding like a flower blooming…everything falling in place. Mila quickly found her forever home.

Oscar and Oliver were severely overweight, so much so that fat pads covered their eyes (they could not see), and their bellies dragged on the ground. Their tusks and toes were much overgrown, as well. They were vetted. tusks and toes trimmed, and placed on a very restricted diet. It’s taken many months to melt away the fat and so they can see. Poor lil piggies, they’re still looking for a farm sanctuary or a better pig home to live out their days. Can anyone help?

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from our barn to you!

DID NOT KNOW… by Alissa Kelly

 

I did not know a horse could bring people into your life that end up meaning the most to you.

I did not know a horse could make the hardest days of your life bearable.

I did not know a horse could teach you to put others first.

I did not know a horse could remind you time and time again that your gut is always right.

I did not know a horse could break your heart.

I did not know a horse could pick you up when you have fallen apart.

I did not know a horse could teach you to dream again, after you thought it was not possible.

I did not know a horse could make you believe in yourself.

I did not know a horse could teach responsibility, work ethic, and dedication.

I did not know a horse could make you believe in something when no one else does.

I did not know a horse could make you learn to forgive and forget.

I did not know a horse could humble you faster than you can say humble.

I did not know a horse could make you a winner.

I did not know a horse could also teach you how to lose gracefully.

I did not know a horse could instill patience in you.

I did not know a horse could make you listen better.

I did not know a horse could give you their heart.

I did not know a horse could change your life.

I did not know a horse could do all these things…

…..but now I know.

A Christmas Story

In years past, today would be story 25 of our 31 stories for 2021. Well, suffice it to say, we’ve been really busy with The Big Move to Pilot Hill. We’ll have more on that coming soon; until then, we have the most heartwarming story to share. Many of you know how much we love our oldies, and AAE just had the good fortune to make a Christmas miracle come true for one ol’ guy.

AAE was asked to help with an old donkey. We were really hoping to find a new buddy for our lil’ Sammy, but because we’re smack dab in the midst of our transition to our new property, there was no way we could provide the type of care and housing this ol’ guy needed. That said, we knew there must be a way we could help.

Because who can resist these old ears, “the way” came to us. It was kismet. It didn’t take long for the answer to come to light. We got a call from one of our AAE families with an ol’ mare in urgent need of a companion, and it was an ideal situation. There was no question, it was meant to be.

Meet the newest member of AAE’s class of ’21, his name is Figgy Puddin’. When we were told it was old donkey that was all alone, we had no idea they meant really old…and really special. Would you believe, he’s 45. He’s quite arthritic, but he’s an incredibly sweet old man (really, really!).

He perked up when we told him we’d figure it out. We learned what we could, but there wasn’t much history available, but our best guess was that this guy hadn’t spent much time in a trailer, so we thought we were in for a long afternoon, especially considering his arthritis. Much to our surprise, when he hobbled to the trailer with us, Mr. Figgy tried to load. His ol’ joints were pretty stiff, and the step up was quite a reach for him. We helped him….one leg up, then another leg up. He looked like he was on top o’ the world. With a little ass-istance with his behind, he was up and in, and headed for the corner feeder. There was no resistance, no fight, no struggle….just an obliging ol’ guy ready to hit the road. (He got a little medical support to help him with the trip, too). Before we knew it, we were on the road.

We had a slow, easy ride, and when we arrived, this ol’, arthritic guy leapt out of the trailer like a spry guy that had done it a million times. He let out a big bray, and we can only hope he was saying, “It’s about time you got me outta there (the trailer)”.

He glanced around, and their eyes met. First the goats.

Then the girl!

We don’t think it was love at first sight, right?

His new mom took one look at his as he was exiting the trailer, and she said she loved him already. She assured him it was going to be ok.

We think he understood and enjoyed the loving hug and wanted another!

Before long, the two mosied off for a little grub. We were all relieved with how quickly Figgy settled in. He’s eating well, and so far, seems very content. It’s a lot of change for an old donk, but we’re hopeful he’ll transition ok. He’ll be spoiled with lots of love and kindness ’til the end. Once he’s settled in in a few days, he’ll get an eval so he can get some much needed hoof and dental care. He’s getting a new blanket, and whatever else he needs.

Til then, he wishes everyone a very Merry Christmas!

HAPPIEST OF HOLIDAYS TO ALL and

MAY ALL YOUR HOPES AND DREAMS COME TRUE IN 2022!

High five to Trace and the docs at LBEMC!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

There’s no rest for the weary. AAE is having a challenging September with three hospitalizations. The bright light is that two special horses are are getting a second chance at life because of you.

 

This sweet mare is in the hospital now, and she has a long road ahead.

She was dropped off at the vet for euthanasia because she’s been sick with a respiratory issue (non-contagious). Now she has a new life.

What matters is that we got the call, and we offered her a true second chance. Thankfully, owner agreed she could be saved if someone would take her.

We’ll have more photos to share soon. Please say some prayers for this young lady!

 

 

 

It happened not only once, but twice! This young man, now known as Trace, was retired from service from a local mounted police unit. He developed some swelling in his left eye due to a mass. After a series of diagnostics, there was not a definitive answer, but cancer was at the top of the list, and eye removal was likely part of his future. He was retired from service, but this guy was still so full of life.

We took a chance on this guy hoping, if nothing else, we’d be able to offer his a retirement filled with TLC while nature took its course.

Once at AAE, we discussed two more diagnostic options for a biopsy to get a more definitive diagnosis, either by scoping his sinus or by going into his frontal sinus.

So, off the to the vet he went so we could get a peak inside. The scope was inconclusive. Much to everyone’s surprise, once in the sinus, it appeared to be a cyst causing the swelling.

Tissue samples were collected and sent of to the lab, and Trace came back to the barn for a while. Several days later, we got some good news and some not so good news. Good news was the tissue was not cancer. Not so good news was that Trace needed another surgery to remove the cyst and make sure there was nothing more going on inside there.

Thankfully, the docs removed the cyst, cleaned things up, and put this handsome guy back together again. After post-op checks, he was released with great news. Though there is a slight chance the cyst could return, he has an excellent prognosis.

He is home and doing incredibly well. He’s demanding at feed time, and he’s not skipped a beat.

We are incredibly grateful that because of all of you, Trace also has a second chance at a new life.

As many of you know, our sweet Daisy crossed the Rainbow Bridge last week after an extended hospitalization for a prolonged colic. Trace’s first surgery was scheduled the same day Daisy went into the hospital. Needless to say, our vet budget took a big hit this month. If you’re able to donate toward their hospitalization costs, know your help has truly offered second chances for both of these lucky souls!

Run Free, Daisy Donk

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

unnamed-1

Today, we are mourning the loss of our sweetest Daisy. Our girl had a challenging nine days of ups and downs, and yesterday, we helped her across the Rainbow Bridge to set her free to run across green pastures with her ol’ friends, Angus and Kasey.

Daisy came to AAE in 2016 with her big buddies, Angus and Kasey, after a family health crisis. She was six. Angus and Kasey were older draft fellas, much beloved AAE residents that have since passed. Lil Daisy was the boss of these two big guys, and she exerted her authority when it came to meal time!

Everyone was so fascinated by Daisy. From Marshallow and Patches to the rest of the farm critters….well, except maybe the sheep! It didn’t take long for the herd’s hierarchy to play out.

Daisy had the best ears in the world. Besides adorable, they were soft and fuzzy, and though she thoroughly enjoyed her spa days, her favorite was ear massages. She loved having her ears rubbed.

She was a big character, too. Her lil’ personality was precious. There was countless moments of laughter when Daisy was around.

Those of you that know Daisy know that her bestest friend was lil’ ol’ Sammy-boy. This little guy is going to miss her sooooooo very much. Please keep him in your prayers and send him lots of love. For now, he’s settling in with the mini boys, Flame, Robbie, and Dusty. It seems Flame’s wisdom understands his broken heart the best. Hang in there Sammy, you’ll have lots of love to help you along.

What I’ll miss most about this sweet girl was the softness of her muzzle and the kindness in her mouth. She gave the most loving nuzzles and nibbles, always a warm, fuzzy moment from her. If you experienced those lips, you’ll know what I mean. Kind of odd from the lil woolly mammoth.

Oh, Dais…it was so long before your time. Thank you for giving everyone such wonderful memories….sweet, cute, precious, warm, kind, funny, and all the gamut of emotions. You were such a sweet and special soul. You were loved by many, and we’ll remember you, always.

Daisy spent the last nine days hospitalized at Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center where the docs worked hard to resolve her colicky symptoms. She initially improved, then had some ups and downs, we had encouraging days, but the last couple days became very difficult, to say the least. In the end, there was nothing more we could do to ease her pain. We thank everyone for the love, support, concern, and warm words during this time. As many of you know, the costs of care for hospitalization can be challenging. If you’d like to make a donation to AAE in memory of Daisy, we would very much appreciate the opportunity to pay it forward to the next equine in need.

THANK YOU!

Boots & Bling Still Needs Your Help!

Thank you to our auction donors, things are looking up, but we’re not there yet!!

For the past 8 years AAE has received significant financial support from the auctions held during Boots & Bling. Unfortunately, we are still short of our goal for items to be auctioned during this year’s event. We are requesting urgent help with donations of experiences, destinations, services, and unique items that will inspire our horse-loving community to bid, helping fund the care, support, and feeding of the horses as well as the infrastructure needs of AAE.

Examples of auction items that could help bring in donations include airline miles, a vacation rental or timeshare, hotel stays, travel experiences, tickets to a sporting event or any event, a round of golf, a sailboat experience, an activity, a fishing trip, theatre tickets, an excursion, a wine tasting experience, a lunch date with a wizard, an educational opportunity, appliances (air conditioner, wood burning stove, refrigerator, grill, television, etc.), skis or a snowboard for the slopes, a boat, a truck, a trip to the Amazon, wine, beer, other spirits, gift cards of any kind, or any other ideas you might have!

We are truly an organization that is powered by our community through your support, donations, and volunteerism – please reach out through your network to secure auction items, helping AAE to continue rescuing animals in need. Even if you don’t have items to donate, if you have any ideas or contact info, that would be greatly appreciated, too! This year is especially important to us as we continue in our transition to the new property in Pilot Hill. We know the past year with Covid has been hard on everyone, but if you can find a way to give, please do.

Examples of auction items that could help bring in donations include airline miles, a vacation rental or timeshare, a travel experience, tickets to a sporting event or other event, a round of golf, a sailboat experience, an activity, a fishing trip, theatre tickets, an excursion, a wine tasting experience, a lunch date with a wizard, an educational opportunity, appliances (air conditioner, wood burning stove, refrigerator, grill, television, etc.), skis or a snowboard for the slopes, a boat, a truck, a trip to the Amazon, or any other ideas you might have!

We are truly an organization that is powered by our community through your support, donations, and volunteerism – please reach out through your network to secure auction items, helping AAE to continue rescuing animals in need. Even if you don’t have items to donate, if you have any ideas or contact info, that would be greatly appreciated, too! This year is especially important to us as we continue in our transition to the new property in Pilot Hill. We know the past year with Covid has been hard on everyone, but if you can find a way to give, please do.

THANK YOU!
