An Adoption Story: Cahill and Maya

Maya came to AAE when her owner was facing a terminal health condition and would no longer be able to care for Maya or work with her.  Maya was initially rescued by her former owner from an extreme neglect and abuse case, and one of her former owner’s priorities was assuring Maya would never have to face abuse again.  She knew AAE would work to find a safe and loving home.
Maya was transferred to AAE at the end of September 2016.  She unloaded from the trailer after a marathon haul from near the Oregon border, and she was a tad lame.  Maya had some challenging trust issues and physical limitations resulting from a past hip injury from her abuser.  She also had DSLD, further limiting her adoption potential.
While at AAE, she was given time and space to settle in.  She was showered with love and kindness by her many special volunteer friends, and she was housed on flat ground to minimize the stress on her body.  Thankfully, her old hip injury and DSLD maintained very well, and she never showed any discomfort.  With the help of her special friends at AAE, Maya learned that humans weren’t all bad.  She started to really enjoy grooming and all the pampering showered upon her.
  
Cahill came to AAE in March 2018 when his family was unable to provide the care he needed.  He had also been rescued from a previous neglect situation where he had been living alone in a pasture and not cared for for years. The family that rescued him was told he was a former sheriff’s horse.   He was emaciated and in poor condition when they offered to take him in.  They tried to provide the care he needed, but they were unable to help him. They had a family crisis of their own.  They reached out to AAE and asked for help.
When Cahill arrived at AAE, he was very thin.  He also had substantial skin issues, a thick coat that helped hide his bones.  He needed dental work, and he was very depressed.  After starting him on a refeeding program and his vet evaluation, he had a much needed spa-day.  He had caked on dirt on his limbs, and he was given a medicated bath.  He enjoyed the water and the relief that seemed to come from treating his skin and getting rid of all the dry, caked on dirt.  There was hope in his eyes.
Cahill began to improve and put on much needed weight.  His skin cleared, but not before he lost nearly every ounce of hair on his body.  His head and trunk were practically bald in the cold of winter, but he was grateful for blankets and the hair that remained on his legs.  His eyes brightened, and he started acting with more interest in the horses and world around him.  He enjoyed his daily luvin’ from his volunteers, and day by day, he evolved into such a good ol’ boy.
 
We are happy to share that our long-timer, Maya, and our short-timer, Cahill, recently found their “golden pond” with their dream family in Nevada City.  When Maya met her new mom, it was obvious they were both experiencing a “love at first sight” moment.  Maya is not one to approach just anyone, but when she met her mom, there was no hesitation.  She walked up to her and there was instant pleasure in their exchange.  Cahill, on the other hand, took it all in and drew mom AND dad in as he relished in their attention.
These two lucky souls got their soft landing in the perfect forever home where they are lavished with daily love and attention, and in return, their new mom and dad are say their lives have been so enriched by these two, and they have been fulfilled in being able to make such a big difference in the lives of Maya and Cahill.
It’s so gratifying to see the transitions horses make when they’re given the love and care they need, not only the physical transition, but the new hope they share with humans. They hold no grudges, and they become such a reminder of foregiveness, resilience, and unconditional living.  Rescue horses are such a gift.
Thank YOU for supporting AAE and making possible happy endings for horses like Maya and Cahill!!

Featured Intake: Beau

Beau came to AAE in mid-July when his aging owner was no longer able to care for him, and his caretaker was moving out of state.  Beau is a 28 year old 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, but the ones he had were much overgrown, some loose and one so long it was pressing 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 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 end, Beau 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. For now, Beau is doing very well, and he is slowly redeveloping his svelte lil’ bod!

Starting midnight tonight, we are asking you to participate in another huge and historic event for our region, the BIG Day of Giving.  This event starts at midnight and you have 24 hours to join us. Once this starts, All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc. (AAE) will join with over 600 other nonprofits working to make our region #1 as the most generous community in the country on this national day of giving!
As many of you know, AAE strives to support and further our mission of rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming abused, neglected and/or abandoned horses and other animals, as well as those in the auction/slaughter pipeline.
This year, our goal is to engage at least 200 donors and raise $10,000 to help us FILL THE BARN to support our feed and care costs! 
Your donation of any amount will help feed a horse or offset the cost of veterinary care, farrier care or dental care. $25 helps to provide feed to a horse for about two weeks , $50 helps provide feed for a horse for about a month, and $100 helps with provide feed and basic care to a horse for about a month.

Help Us Make a Difference!

  1. Schedule a Donation Now (starting as small as $15) to All About Equine Animal Rescue by clicking Donate: Big Day of Giving – AAE
  2. Make a Donation after Midnight to All About Equine Animal Rescue by clicking Donate: Big Day of Giving – AAE

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! 

Amigo

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

  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!!
Rudy needs a partial sponsor ($50/month) to cover his basic care.
If you would like to be a sponsor for Rudy,
please click the link below to set up a recurring monthly donation.
 (recurring monthly donation)

Gunner

  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

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

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!!

Foley

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.
This pretty pinto mare is due to foal soon.  She needs a sponsor ($100/month) to cover her feed and basic care.  Her foal will need a sponsor, too.

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.
If you would like to be a sponsor this mama or filly,
please click the link below to set up a recurring monthly donation.

Stay tuned for more updates.  We’ll do our best to provide more info soon.
If you like what we do and want to help assure ongoing activities at AAE, please join us for our Boots & Bling fundraising event.  Scroll down to purchase tickets, volunteer, donate an auction item, sponsor the event, or get involved in some way.  This is our main event that provides a large amount of our funding that supports our operation throughout the year.

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

Sweet Kaya, Our Hearts are Broken

We’ve had a sad week at AAE with the loss of our sweet, sweet ol’ girl, Kaya.  Many of you may remember she colicked last month, and her docs found a stone in her tummy.  Sadly, it reared it’s ugly self again, and this past Tuesday morning, Kaya was not herself.  She hadn’t eaten her dinner, and she hadn’t pooped all night.  Not good!  We called the vet, and after exam, we took her to the clinic for hospitalization.  She was impacted again, and we were faced with the surgery question, again.  It’s a heart-wrenching question when faced with the cost of surgery, her age, recovery, and all the other horses in our care.  Just as importantly, all of the volunteers and participants that love each and every horse in our care and the participants that share their lives, as well.  Needless to say, this is one special mare that has so kindly touched the lives of so many people.

She gave so much to so many, and she had a very good prognosis for the stone removal surgery, so we were planning to ask all of her friends for help.  As we were preparing a special fundraiser for her surgery, the call came.  Kaya had a cough.  Not a good thing with consideration of surgery.  Sadly, the docs discovered she had a diaphragmatic hernia.  She had fluid in her chest, and some of her intestines were pushing into her thoracic cavity.  Sadly, this presented a much more complicated situation for our sweet girl, and we felt the best thing we could do is send her gently across the Rainbow Bridge.
Kaya came to us February 25th, 2014, four years and two days before she left us.  Kaya made many a birthday memories and she introduced hundreds of new volunteers to horses.  She served our veterans in a horsemanship clinic, and she was good friends with many of the seniors in our herd.
Please click the image to share in some more memorable Kaya moments.
No doubt, there are angel kids riding Miss Kaya, and
she’s making their time in Heaven extra special!
Kaya, we so miss you, Sweet Girl!!

Our horses & everyone at AAE 

Thanks you for caring!!

  We finished 2017 recapping many of our horse stories from the year, and along came 2018.  We’ve been quiet but we haven’t been idle.  AAE has been busy, and sadly, we have several new horses that joined us in January.  We have the beginnings of many new stories to tell, and we are hopeful we can share in just as many happy endings to come.
Many thanks to you for your continued support.
Without it, we couldn’t help horses like the ones below.

New Arrivals at AAE

To say January was a busy month at AAE is an understatement.  We took in seven horses; four were not anticipated, and we had to rearrange some paddocks to accommodate everyone.  Our volunteers worked diligently through winter weather in an expanded quarantine area.  It was a long few weeks, but everyone stepped up for the horses.  A huge thank you to everyone for their dedication to our horsey friends.  We are all very thankful to have a break in the weather, and we are looking forward to daylight savings in about a month!!
We have a long update, but we hope you will take time to read about each horse and get to know them.  They all need a sponsor.  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,
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’re incurring (and will incur) as these horses make their journey back to health, please click the link below to donate.

Meet Sandi

   Sandi came to AAE on Janaury 7, 2018, after her owner was experiencing a family health and financial crisis.  Sandi is a 5 year old Arabian mare.  We picked her up from her boarding facility in the midst of winter weather.
The facility owner said she had been moved to the roundpen because she ran right through electric fencing, “very hot” electric fencing.  Sadly, we found a very cute, but skinny lil’ mare enduring the elements with no shelter, no wind break, and no food.  We can’t help but wonder if she was in the roundpen because her owner was months behind in rent, or maybe she braved the “hot” fence because she was cold and needed food.
Sandi loaded quietly, but she didn’t travel well.  She danced in the trailer the entire ride to AAE.
Once at AAE, she had a difficult time settling into a paddock alone.
With a little time and some rearranging, she calmed and focused on food.
She’s making steady progress and is looking great.  This was only a week after arrival.

Thankfully, her vet check went well fairly well.  Besides her lack of weight, she has a few melanomas under/around her tail, not uncommon for white (gray) horses.  Fortunately, none are creating any issues that require removal.  Sandi needs dental work, which is scheduled in a few weeks to give her time to get strong and healthy.  She was a bit naughty for the farrier; she needs some extra work with handling her hind hooves, and she needs a bit of confidence.  She tends to rely on another horse for confidence and gets very stressed and reactive when no other horse is around.  We’ll work on building her confidence before we ask much more of her.
We were told Sandi has been ridden in the past, and she was described as “green, very green”.
Once her dental is done, wolf teeth removed, and her body condition improves, she’ll be evaluated more before she becomes available for adoption.
In the meantime, Sandi needs a sponsor.

Meet Dia

  Dia came to AAE with her buddy Noche on Janaury 14, 2018.  Her owner lived alone and was experiencing a major health issue.  She was unable manage the physical requirements of caring for her two horses.  These two girls were delivered to AAE, and they unloaded from the trailer like it was just another day.  Ho hum!
Dia is a super cute little (~14.0hh), 21 year old Arabian mare.  She has a history of showing successfuly in halter, and her easy going temperament occasionally allowed someone to hop on and head down the trail, even though she had no formal training.  Her prior owner indicated she had not been ridden a lot, but she took it all in stride and did quite well.
Dia’s vet check went pretty well.  She has multiple melanomas under/around/on her tail and a few in other areas.  Two around in her rectal area need to be removed.  One is ulcerated and could be painful, and flies will be a nuisance.  The other is internal, on or near her anal sphincter, and it is golf ball sized.  It is pushing her rectum to the side.  If not removed, it will likely continue to grow and push more into the rectum and block the passage of manure.  She also has one in the corner of her mouth on the left side.  This one should be removed so she can comfortably wear a bit, should she be ridden with a bit in the future.  Dia needs dental work, and she’s scheduled in a few weeks.  So far, Dia has been easy to handle; she is good with the farrier; and she enjoys grooming and attention.  She’s a bit bossy around food, but otherwise, a really nice little gal.  Once her dental is done and her melanomas are removed, she will be further evaluated before she is available for adoption.

Dia’s melanoma removal surgery costs are estimated to $550-800.

Meet Noche

  Noche came to AAE with her buddy Dia on Janaury 14, 2018.
Noche is a super cute little (13.2hh), 20 year old Quarter Horse/Paso Fino mare.  She has a riding history, and an easy going temperament.
Noche appears to be in good health.  She is in good condition, but she’s also scheduled for dental work in a few weeks.  So far, Noche has been very easy to handle, good with the farrier, and she enjoys grooming and attention.  Once her dental is done, she’ll be further evaluated before she becomes available for adoption.

Meet Amigo

  Amigo came to AAE with two of his buddies, Rudy and Gunner, on January 17, 2018.  They were reliquished by a private party.  A picture speaks a thousand words.  I need not say more.
Amigo is a big, ol’ teddy bear with a huge heart.  You can tell he is so thankful to have food and TLC because he smiles at you with his eyes when he hangs his head out of his stall “window”.  He’s about 29 years old stands about 15.2 hands, and he weighed only about 840 pounds.  His body condition is worse than it looks; he has a thick (dead) winter coat that really hides his bony frame, almost as good as a blanket.  So far we’ve pulled off a good 250 to 300 ticks that are embedded under his “body rug” hair.
About a week after arriving, he suffered a bout of colic.  It was mild, but scary nonetheless knowing how weak and deprived his body is.  He was on a slow refeeding program consistent with UCD’s protocol for refeeding starving horses, but still had a little struggle.  Thankfully, thanks to some compassionate veterinary care from our docs at LBEMC, he rebounded quickly.
While he was down, you could see the sad condition he’s in.  Fortunately, as sensitive as horses are, it was a reminder of how resilient they can be.  This guy is a fighter!   We did a happy dance when we heard his bloodwork looked good, all things considered.  Surprisingly, he was also negative for Cushing’s.
Amigo is making slow, steady progress, and you can already see some improvement.  We’re hopeful he continues on to a smooth path to recovery.  This past weekend, several of our volunteers showered him with love…a good bath and more tick picking.  Though we have tried to removed them all, more are discovered with each grooming session.  Thank goodness for the warm, sunny weather!
A wet coat is a flat coat, and you can really see the gravity of his condition, even nearly three weeks into his refeeding program.
So far, Amigo has been very easy to handle, he is very patient with handling his hooves, he thoroughly enjoys grooming and attention, and he water/bathing were not an issue.  He has a visit with the farrier this week, and if his body condition improves enough over the next several weeks, he’ll also have dental work done in about a month.  Once his weight normalizes, he’ll be evaluated more before he becomes available for adoption.  Love, love, love this ol’ guy.
We were told he has been ridden, but bucks if the the ride is too long.  Beyond that, little is known about his past.  We’re simply looking forward a quick recovery so this guy can move on to a bright future in a forever loving home.
In the meantime, Amigo needs a sponsor.

Thank you to Ms. B for being a voice for these guys and bravely facilitating their relinquishment by their owner.  More thanks to John and Buckaroo Leather for providing some leads and halters to help on rescue day.

Meet Rudy

  Rudy came to AAE with Amigo and Gunner on January 17, 2018.  Like Amigo, pictures speak a thousand words.
Rudy is a big, love, too.  He’s about 23 years old, stands about 16.1 hands, and weighed only about 875 pounds.  His photos are more representative of his body condition than Amigo’s, as his coat is not nearly as thick, heavy, dead.  So far we’ve pulled a lot of ticks off Rudy, too, but not close to the number from Amigo.
Rudy is doing well on his refeeding program, similarly, consistent with UCD’s protocol for refeeding starving horses.  It was a surprise though, as his teeth are in dire need of dental work.  His front teeth are in much worse condition than those visible in the back.
His hooves are also in need of a trim, and he’s scheduled this week.  Hoof neglect takes many forms.  Rudy has some gnarly heel cracks with deep thrush in all four hooves.
So we found some soaking “boots” (a little big for him, but they worked) and soaked all four feet.
Sadly, beneath all of the crust and crud are some pretty angry sores.  They’ll take some time and effort to heal his heels, but they should be on the right track path now.
So far, Rudy has also been very easy to handle, he is very patient with handling his hooves, and he enjoys grooming and attention.  He has a visit with the farrier this week, and if his body condition improves enough over the next several weeks, he’ll also have dental work done in about a month.  Once his weight normalizes, he’ll be evaluated more before he becomes available for adoption.
We were told he was been ridden quite a bit and had been used for barrel racing.  Beyond that, little is known about his past.  We’re looking forward a quick recovery for Rudy, too, so we can find a forever loving home for him, too.
In the meantime, Rudy needs a sponsor.

Meet Gunner

Gunner is the third muskateer.  He came to AAE with Amigo and Rudy on January 17, 2018.
Thankfully, Gunner is in much better condition than his pals.
Gunner is about 19 years old, stands about 15.0 hands.  He has some trust issues and we’re slowly earning his trust.  So far, we haven’ identified any major issues.  We’ve found some ticks on Gunner, too, but he’s not infested like his buddies.  He likely needs dental care, and his hoofs are in need of a trim.
Gunner is a handsome guy, and we’re looking forward to breaking through the surface of this guy and earning his trust.
So far, Gunner tends to be evasive for haltering, is fairly good leading, but needs more confidence; he seems to feel vulnerable with leg and hoof handling; and he is quite connected to Amigo.  That being said, he’s made regular progress, and he’s becoming more willing to interact with humans.  He’ll also have dental work done in about a month, and hopefully, we can help him be more confident with leg and hoof handling soon, so he can have a good experience with the farrier.  Once we earn his trust, he’ll be evaluated more before he becomes available for adoption.
We were told he was “broke” but regressed after not being ridden for some time.  Beyond that, little is known about his past.  We’re looking forward earning Gunner’s trust so we can find a forever loving home for him, too.
In the meantime, Gunner needs a sponsor.

Remember Red?

  Red came back to AAE in January after his adopter faced a financial crisis.  He was working two jobs to make ends meet and found he had no time for Red.  He knew it wasn’t good for Red considering his needs.
If you remember Red, you’ll remember he had severe trust issues and found it hard simply being in the presence of unfamiliar humans.   He was high maintenance in terms of needing continuous interaction to sustain a trusting relationship.  Red has come a long way, but now has to learn to trust new people again.  Before rehoming again, we’ll take time to expose Red to new people on a regular basis until he can readily accept anyone.
In the meantime, Red needs a sponsor.

Kaya, Our Rock Horse! 

No pun intended.  She has a stone, but not that kind of stone.  Kaya is a long time resident of AAE, and she is one of our most trusted, dependable, reliable, and beloved horses.  She is calm, quiet, confident, and willing to do just about anything, seemlessly.  She helps new volunteers learn about horses, and she’s filled a lot of children’s dreams, not to mention the love she bestows on our volunteers on a daily basis.
A few weeks ago, she suffered a rough bout of colic that had the vet out two days in a row, then she ended up at Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center for a few days.  Thankfully, she’s home now and doing fine.  It turns out, we’re not certain what caused her discomfort, but we discovered she has a golf ball-sized stone in her small colon (like a kidney stone, not really a rock).  The size of the stone is in one of those gray areas:  it’s small enough that it might pass, but it’s big enough that it might not pass.  She also had a little bit of sand in her gut.  Neither was severe enough to be an obvious cause of her pain, and it could have even been something completely different. Fortunately, it resolved, and she was able to come home.
The stone still hasn’t passed, and it may not….or maybe it will?  We’re hopeful, it will rest quietly where it is for the rest of her life!  Needless to say, her veterinary costs for two visits to AAE, a couple nights at the clinic, and all of the diagnostics were extensive.
If you’re able to contribute to Kaya’s veterinary costs to help “replenish” our veterinary fund, it will help support future veterinary care for other horses throughout the year.

DONATE 

As you can see, it’s been a very busy January, and we’ve already put that dent in our veterinary budget for the year.  Please help us continue our efforts on behalf of horses in need.

Fosters Needed for 

Senior/Companion Horses 

  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 horses without foster homes.  We have a waiting list.  Can you help?  Do you have a lonely horse?….an empty stall or pasture?..or simply a love for senior horses?
If you don’t want to adopt, we offer a long term foster program for some senior/companion  horses to help support additional space needs for senior horses.  There are potential tax benefits.
For more information, please contact wendy@allaboutequine.org.

Happy New Year!!  

 2017 was a very special year, and we are glad we got to share it with you.

We hope you enjoyed the stories and thank you for your continuing support during

 the Deck the Stalls campaign.  Although we haven’t reached our goal, we are in a much better position to get ready for another year of horse rescue.
In 2017, AAE started the year with 35 horses in our care.  We took in 36 horses, and we adopted 33.  That’s an intake to adoption ratio of about 92 percent!!  Intakes were due to a variety of reasons including two orphan foals (Rascal and Cowboy), Blue – the mustang with the large mass on its leg, an abandoned horse with a rope around it’s neck, a neglected and emaciated horse, several senior horses in need, and many wild horses and burros in need.  Sadly but compassionately, we helped four of our horses cross the Rainbow Bridge due to severe colic and pain/quality of life issues.
With 2017 in the books we are now focusing on the great stories we will be creating in 2018.  Our goal is for each of these adoptable horses to find permanent homes this year!

Let’s Deck the Stalls with Boughs of Plenty for 2018

1 Day Left, AAE Residents!

The heart of our volunteer activities begin with our residents.  it all begins with our minis, ponies, and our full-sized horses.  Our new volunteers learn about basic care and handling with our most reliable, trustworthy, and dependable horses.  They have their stories, too, but we don’t often talk about them because their story came and went.  Let’s revisit….

RUSTY
Rusty is our 31, soon to be 32-year old Arabian gelding that came to us in 2010 due to a financial distress and an impending deployment situation. Rusty was loved beyond words, but his mom knew she couldn’t give him what he needed, and she worried that when she was deployed, there wouldn’t be anyone experienced enough to provide the care he needed for as long as it might be.  So she made the difficult decision to find a safe home for him.

Shortly after he arrived, we discovered some really nasty summer sores on his “private parts”.  Sadly, they were well hidden, and they were discovered during his vet exam.  It took several vet visits for cleaning with sedation before he healed.  A while later, we found a sarcoid in his ear that started getting irritated and growing.  Ear sarcoids are challenging to treat because the meds can spread into the ear canal and damage the inner ear.  Once again, Rusty had several rounds of treatment with Dr. Stolba until his ear finally healed.  Fortunately, it has been several years, and the sarcoid has not returned.

Rusty has been an AAE steady since he got here.  Early on, he gave lessons.  Then he became our go to guy for birthday parties and kids programs.  He has given many a child their first horseback ride!  He’s also one of our favorites for new volunteers.  Many of our new volunteers come to AAE with no horse experience.  Some haven’t been around horses since they were a child.  Rusty is one we can count on to take good care of the newbies.  They love him, and so do our veteran volunteers.

Some call him Grandpa Rusty or Uncle Rusty, too.  He loves the youngsters.  When Rusty is turned out with the herd, you might find him acting like Rico Suave, as he swaggers up to the girls.  Or, you might see him acting like a young buck, rearing and playing with the boys.  He’s the best.  We love this ol’ guy to the moon and back!  Typical of a older horse, he’s worth his weight in gold!

KAYA
Kaya came to AAE in 2014.  She was rescued by another group at auction in Nevada after outbidding the slaughter-buyer, then placed with AAE.  Kaya was a 20-something ranch horse that had been neglected.   She was lame in front when she unloaded, but it shouldn’t have been a surprise.  Her hooves were excessively long, and she had on an old pair of shoes.  It looked like she was months past due for a trim and new shoes.  It took considerable time to work through her hoof issues.  Initially, you could see she was sore if you asked her to move any faster than a walk.  She would trot, barely, and surely couldn’t lope.  Fortunately, we stuck with it and when we finally got her hooves “unjammed”, we noticed her running with the herd.  This girl could gallop!

Kaya is a true gem.  She was a diamond in the rough.  She IS the most dependable, trustworthy, reliable, and safe horse we have at AAE.  Ask her for anything, and she’ll give you everything.  She’s a party girl, too.  The kids love her.  She loves the kids.  They could dress her like a doll, if they tried.
Kaya is another senior horse worth her weight in gold.

KASEY
Kasey came to AAE in Spring 2016 with his big buddy, Angus, and his little pal, Daisy after a family health issue.  Sadly, we had to say goodbye to Angus earlier this year.  Kasey is a 21-ish Clydesdale.  A gentle giant is truly what he is.  Kasey has a working history as a driving horse.  We were told he has a tremendous amount of experience working anywhere from a team of two to a team of eight.  Prior to retirement, he competed at the Draft Horse Classic.

Kasey is a big, handsome, lovely hunk of horse.  He loves attention.  He loves being groomed.  He’s simply a big happy guy that enjoys every moment of every interaction.  Well, maybe not every, like standing patiently for all four of his big heavy hooves to be trimmed or shod.  He’s got some arthritis so sometimes it’s hard for him to stand on any one leg for an extended period.  As big as he is, he’s pretty agreeable to most anything you ask, but beware of the head.  You don’t want to be on that side when he turns to see what the heck that noise was.  Big head meeting little head:  big head wins!

Kasey and Angus were the first drafts to come through AAE, and we hope they won’t be the last.  If you’ve never had the pleasure of meeting one of these big guys, you must.  Be sure to  visit sometime or get out to the Draft Horse Classic.  They are special.  Kasey is special!!!

SIERRA
Sierra was one of the founding horses of AAE.  She was a feedlot rescue that came to AAE with her two boys, Dayton and Clayton, in July 2009.  She’s gotta be getting close to 20 by now.  Clayton’s mom had shipped to slaughter, and he was left behind at the feedlot to fend for himself.  We can all imagine the horror that must have been for him.  Sierra and Dayton adopted him.  Actually, Clayton nursed on Sierra, and neither Sierra nor Dayton objected.  Reality, they were probably too weak to care.  The trio came to AAE in such sad condition.  Sierra was depleted.  She was skin and bones, and the boys were thin and pretty banged up.  Sierra’s body was working overtime feeding two lil guys, and she had little energy left for herself.  Her eyes were weepy, as if teary, and her head hung low.  Her hooves long, her hair falling out, and her mane dead.  Poor mare, but she fought so hard to live.

At AAE, we were only able to halter her because she was literally too tired to resist.  It wasn’t until a little later that we realized she probably hadn’t been haltered before, and she surely didn’t know how to lead.  Thankfully, she was willing to learn.  She took such amazing care of the boys, watching over them with her wisdom, always.  Slowly, she gained weight and started looking like a horse again.  Much to our shock one day after she had been here a month or so, we looked over, and she had a long, bloody strand hanging from her vulva.  My heart sank.  We had only been in the horse rescue world for a couple months, and we hadn’t established with a vet yet.  We called all the nearby vets, but none could come on an emergency call.  After hanging up from the last one, much to my horror, there was the reason in the distance.  Sierra lost a baby.  Sierra had passed a stillborn fetus that looked to be about about four months along.  It was horribly sad.  Not only for the loss of baby and mom’s loss of baby, but for mom.  What she must have been through.  It sheds some light on how hard her body had been fighting for life.  Not only her life, but she was supporting her lil’ guy and another mama’s little guy, and baby, too.

That IS Sierra.  She takes care of everyone at the sacrifice of herself.  That has been Sierra from day one.  In 2009/2010, we had 12 foals at AAE.  Our focus was mare/foal pairs and pregnant mares.  Sierra was like Grandma to all, even some of the moms.  You’d look out in pasture, and you would see Sierra eating from a tub, and she would be surrounded by five or six foals and another mom or two.  Always!

Even today!  Sierra has since been the matriarch of the herd.  No matter how many horses come and go, she is queen bee.  Everyone looks to her.  She has that presence; she has the look.  She’s had several mares challenge her along the way, but in the end, Sierra it is!

Sierra has not been an easy mare to handle.  She has some deep seated trust issues, and no doubt someone did her seriously wrong at some point.  She’s got a strong spirit; it’s palpable.  She’s one you recognize the privilege it is to be in her presence, to touch her, to feel her.  Sierra is a very special mare.

DANNY
We shared Danny’s story earlier, but he’s so special and now a resident, he’s worth sharing again for anyone that may have missed it.  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.

Fortunately, the timing was right and Danny has a couple special people in his life that paved the way for him to get to AAE.  Danny is the most kind, mellow, and affectionate horse we have known, and we are grateful he landed with us.  Danny‘s owner’s health was failing, and she was unable to provide ongoing care for him any longer.  Danny is 27.  He knew no other owner, as he was born to her mare.  Mama rejected him for four days, and on the 5th day, she finally accepted him.  Danny spent those four days with his surrogate mom while she held mom and made sure he was able to nurse.  It was a 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, and not because of death.  To say it was a sad day when we loaded Danny in the trailer is an understatement.  We all shed tears.

Danny will stay on with AAE as a resident, helping new volunteers learn about horses.  He will also participate in youth activities and any other related equine programs where we need a most trustworthy and dependable horse.  We are lucky to have this ol’ guy, and I think he’s enjoying befriending volunteers and visitors, alike.  Danny, you are loved!

FINN
Finn was born at AAE in April 2014.  Finn’s mom, Kai, was one of a group of mares rescued from one of the Nevada auction’s.  Mom had been here about seven weeks when she delivered Finn.  He was this precious little palomino package.

Sadly, mom had dripped milk for a week before a difficult delivery, and Finn didn’t get any colostrum.  He and mom were examined after delivery, and poor little Finn had no antibodies.  He got a plasma transfusion to boost his immunity.  It wasn’t enough though.  At about three weeks, he contracted some “bug”, and he was passing neon green diarrhea.  It was really bad diarrhea, and we all know how susceptible our little guys are when diarrhea strikes.  Finn was given fluids and antibiotics, but his condition worsened.  We ended up administering fluids and meds, and we were with him pretty much 24/7 for about 10 days before he stabilized and we could breathe a sigh of relief.
Finn grew to be a handsome young lad, but trouble he was!  He was adopted when he was bout 14 months old, but it wasn’t long lasted.  He came back about six months later because he was a bit of a trouble-maker.  Must be why we love him so much!  He’s been a volunteer favorite ever since, and since Uncle Dayton left for Colorado, Finn was the perfect guy to take his place.  Hoping to start Finn under saddle in 2018.  He’s ready!  He has some time to grow into one of our dependable, trusty  steeds, and look forward to his journey to a “dopey” old man.

So, many of our good stories involve senior horses.  Senior horses!   Senior horses are worth their weight in gold.  Sadly, so many people think an old horse is a throw away horse.  More sadly, so many more people won’t consider an old horse when looking for a new horse because they are an “old” horse.  My biggest wish for 2018 is that more people open their eyes and hearts to everything an “old” horse has to offer….the joys, the wonder, the wisdom, and the love of an old horse.  Old horses may be old.  They may not have a lot of years left to give, but they give you everything they’ve got.  They’ve been there, they’ve done it.  They’ve lived it, they’ve learned it.  When you consider pairing a 1,000 pound horse next with a child, consider a wise old horse over a young inexperienced horse any day!  For a small child that wants to learn, a few good years with an old horse is so much better than a few years with a “bad” horse or worse, a few moments with a young, not so wise horse.

If you are enjoying our stories and

Mini but Mighty!

Let’s Deck the Stalls with Boughs of Plenty for 2018

2 Days Left, Mighty Mini Ones!
Every day throughout the year, our mini herd is here to put smiles on the faces of our volunteers and visitors.  Our little guys are some of the best ambassadors for AAE and horses alike.  Each has his or her own story of how they came to AAE.
PATCHES
Patches, the little princess, ha ha!  Patches is an older mini (20-something) that came to AAE from a dog rescue in Fall 2012.  She was on the thin side and a bit lonely.  We thought she’d be perfect for the kids around AAE.  Little did we know, kids weren’t her forte.  She tolerated them at best.  Patches idea of a job is eating.  Eating hay, eating grass, eating pellets, eating anything.  Really, eating everything.  If Patches isn’t eating, she isn’t happy, haha.  Patches is cutest when she trots down to the barn for her morning treat.  She bounces, she smiles, excitement exudes from the tips of her hair.  The trail back to the “farm”, on the other hand, is a slow, dreary trip.  Ho hum!  Really, Patches is adorable.  She’s a little sass, and a little sweet.  She’s the perfect Thelwell pony that needs a story written after her.
MARSHMALLOW
You met Marshmallow earlier this month, but now you can hear the rest of the story.  Marshy-man came to AAE in March 2014.  He was quite sickly.  He had been at another rescue, and they were unable to solve his problems.  He had been rescued once by this rescue, gone to a therapy home, and returned to be rescued again.  The back story isn’t entirely clear, but what we know is that Marshy was a sick guy when he came to AAE.  This was not long after he arrived.
 He was bony.  He lacked muscle  tone.  His eyes said it all.  Marshy was eating but wasn’t holding weight and he wasn’t feeling good at all.  He’d stand parked out and wait for discomfort to pass.  We tried a variety of things from diet to meds.  He would have short periods of relief, but nothing helped for any length of time.  Nothing stuck.
 With the help of Dr. Stolba and Dr. Fielding throughout and an array of diagnostics one step at a time, we finally learned Marshy had an intestinal issue.  His intestinal walls were much thicker than normal, so he wasn’t absorbing nutrients like a normal intestine.  Fortunately, once the issue was identified, we were able to help him with medication.  Thank goodness!!  This little guy is truly a remarkable horse.  Unlike Patches (hehe), he LOVES kids.  He LOVES activity.  He LOVES people.  He LOVES working.  He LOVES life!  He’s a kind, curious, gentle old soul.  And he is old (at least 20-something, probably more), but he would say “PTHHH, no I’m not!”  Marshy has put smiles on so many faces at AAE.  We were so saddened when he developed rapid onset cataracts last year.  BUT, we were so thrilled last year when you all came to the rescue and helped Marshy regain sight in one eye.  Marshy is a gift to everyone that meets him, and our AAE community has been such a gift to him.  Marshy thanks you, we all thank you!!
DAISY
Daisy is a little (not) mini donk that came to AAE in 2016 with her gentle giants, Kasey and Angus, after a family health crisis.  Daisy ruled the roost with her massive counterparts, and it was quite evident in her waistline.  She’s lost quite a bit of weight since coming to AAE, and she could still benefit from losing a bit more.  Check out that neck.  Gotta love those ears!
Daisy is one of our teachers at AAE.  All the new volunteers are privileged to meet this girl, and no doubt most would like to call her a three letter word (*ss) before the day is done.  She teaches many of the volunteers what persistence and stubborn go together.  She teaches many that not all hooved creatures are like all others.  Daisy has a subtle way of teaching many what “humble pie” is.  Truly, she is the sweetest, cutest, and most stubborn lil’ critter around AAE.  That being said, treat her with kindness, and she will oblige.  We LOVE her to pieces.
ROBBIE & FLAME
These two special boys came to AAE in 2016, not because they weren’t lavished with love or not cared for.  Theirs was a downsizing effort, and we’re so thankful we had the opportunity to welcome these “mature” gents to our herd.  They came at just the right time.  Marshy had lost his vision and we did not think he would be able to “entertain” kids and teach new volunteers.  Robbie is a handsome and talented guy.  He enjoys working with the kids, celebrating birthday parties, walking in parades, and being a bossy guy in the mini herd.  Really, he has a secret crush on Patches, but wants everyone to think he’s just the big man on the block.  Go get ’em Robbie, you’re da’ man!
 Flame is more the gent of the two.  He’s loves attention, he loves working, he loves to entertain, and like Marshy, he loves life.  He’s a happy-go-lucky little one.  He and Marshy make a great team, now only if they’d like each other!  PTHHHH!!!  These two are the perfect blend of perfect, but they’re like oil and water when together.  For now, they have paddocks next door to each other and they are like grumpy old men when it comes to the “two” of them.  Maybe they’ll become the “Odd Couple”, bicker, bicker, bicker but hate to be apart.  ‘Til then, the four minis and the donk get playtime in the arena together, and some days, it’s really a great show.
SPARKY
Sparky isn’t a mini, but he’s part of our little’s crew.  Sparky was one of the first arrivals at AAE in 2009.  He came from a backyard breeder that raised ponies on a small lot in a mobile home development.  There were about 8-10 adult ponies, including a stallion, and a few youngsters.  Sparky was with his mom, and he was only a few weeks old.  They were kept in small pens and had no real turnout.  Their hooves were long, and they were sad.  Loading onto the trailer and coming to AAE was an adventure!
 Sparky is another entertainer.  He’s an absolute character.  Give him an inch, he’ll take it a mile.  Treat him with kindness, and he’ll do the same in return, usually.  He’s another teacher in the bunch.
There are lots of Sparky stories here, but he tells ’em best in person.
HOLLI
One more for fun…our favorite little four-legged friend around here!

When No One Else Would, We Did! Blue’s Last Hope

0

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Let’s Deck the Stalls with Boughs of Plenty for 2018

3 Days Left, Blue!

Blue is a young mustang gelding out of Nevada who came to AAE at the beginning of the year after being asked for assistance by Virginia Range Wild Horse Sanctuary and Hidden Valley Wild Horse Protection Fund. He had been carrying around a large mass of proud flesh (granulation tissue) over his rear fetlock/pastern area for some time.  He was not halterable when he arrived at AAE, and we knew we had a big job ahead in helping Blue.

Before we could evaluate the mass, he had to be gentled, haltered, and his legs/hooves handleable.  With a straightforward mustang, not a big deal, but Blue had some substantial fear/trust issues.  Initial efforts with befriending and haltering him were lukewarm.  Thanks to Dr. Stolba and Team LBEMC (throughout Blue’s journey), we were successful enough to sedate him, radiograph the bony area beneath the mass and collect tissue samples for biopsy.  We wanted to make sure there was not an underlying reason for the mass other than old injury before getting too deep into corrective measures if they would be for naught.  It was not an easy feat.  Even with sedation, he kicked quickly and with purpose.

What If Tomorrow Never Came?

Let’s Deck the Stalls with Boughs of Plenty for 2018

4 Days Left, Aziza, Nailah and Layla!
 
Today’s story is about four Arabian horses that came to AAE in early 2015.  It was back in fall of 2014 that AAE got a call from Janis Jones about several horses left on a ranch after the passing of their owner.  It turns out, there were four beautiful bay mares and a gorgeous black stallion.  These were the last of the horses at Coffey Arabians. Janis Jones, the former Mrs. Michael Coffey, assisted AAE in this rescue and ended up adopting the black stallion (now a gelding). Per Dr. Jones, “The Coffeys were known as one of the finest breeders of Egyptian Arabians in the United States, and these mares are most probably of the Shiko Ibn Sheikh line, a line known for beauty and performance”.
Mr. Coffey passed without a will or trust, and the horses were caught up in probate.  An administrator was appointed to oversee the estate, but there was no information about the horses.  No records of care or feeding practices, no veterinary history, no pedigrees, nothing.  No one knew who the horses were, how old they were, whether they had any health conditions or special needs.  However, it appeared they had lived on the ranch’s 80 acres of lush green pastures without much care.
Their hooves were long, and it appeared one had been dealing with chronic laminitis/founder for some time.  Fortunately, the administrator was a compassionate animal person and sought veterinary and farrier care.  Unfortunately, there were probate issues that limited her ability to provide for the horses via estate funding, so personal funds were used.  Further, being from well known breeding stock, there was belief that the horses had substantial value to the estate.  Reality was that without any specific information about the horses, they had little value to the estate, and the cost of care would exceed the value of the horses.  Ultimately, the horses were released from the estate about six months or so after the death, and AAE was finally able to pick them up.

Aging – Realities of Life for Horse and Human

 5 Days Left, 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.
Fortunately, the timing was right and Danny has a couple special people in his life that paved the way for him to get to AAE.  Danny is the most kind, mellow, and affectionate horse we have known, and we are grateful he landed with us.
