Abandonment is not the Answer

6 Days Left, Shelby!
Shelby is one of several horses that has come to AAE after abandonment by an owner or previous owner.  Sadly, too many horse owners feel they have no other option than to abandon a horse and leave them to fend for themselves for food, water, and shelter.  Many end up in shelters in poor condition, while others are injured, or worse, lose their lives to injuries or accidents.
Shelby is a 6-7 year old QH-type mare that came to AAE in April of 2017 when her new owners realized they did not know enough about horses to provide proper care. They had taken her in after she had been abandoned in their neighborhood.  When we arrived to pick her up, it took about 2.5 hours to earn her trust and place a halter on her.  She was fearful and reactive, and acted as if she’d been abused or otherwise mis-handled.  She was in fair condition, but had several abrasions across her body.

 Merry Christmas!

7 Days Left, Sparkie!

What happens when a horse gets old? Do their guardians continue to provide good care and allow them to live out their lives in a beautiful green pasture and run free? More often than not, this is the case – however, there are horses who are not given the dignified retirement they deserve.  It’s not uncommon to find senior horses abandoned, neglected or worse, as was the case of Sparkie, a former rodeo barrel racer and cow horse.  Sparkie, a 20+ mare, had given her entire life to her owner.  Then she was thrown out as if her lifetime of service wasn’t worthy.  The pasture had dried and gone, and there was nothing more for her to eat.  She wasn’t fed, she wasn’t supplemented, she was just there.

 8 Days Left, Maya!

Maya is a beautiful 12-14 yr old mare that was rescued by her former owner from extreme neglect and abuse. She came to AAE at the end of September 2016 when her owner was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer and would no longer be able to care for Maya or work with her due to illness, and terminal prognosis.

Not having a place for Maya to go, Maya’s owner and daughter tried to rehome her via a Craigslist ad that turned into a pretty scary experience. Maya generated A LOT of interest, but all from backyard breeders, trainers looking for a resale project, and someone even wanted to make her a dancing horse. Her owner felt she deserved a forever home with someone who would LOVE her, not breed her or “train” her to resell at a profit. They contacted AAE and over a few months a place became available and the owner made plans to get Maya from the California, Oregon border to AAE.

 9 Days Left, Reba!

Reba and her adult filly came to AAE after the death of her owner.  Subsequently, family was not able to provide for them.  Reba’s daughter was adopted some time ago.

Reba was an amazing senior mare that we had hoped to utilize as a program horse at AAE. However, she has challenge after challenge as a “herd” horse at AAE. We make ongoing adjustments to try to keep her happy and healthy! Ultimately, Reba was not happy.  We needed to make that right.

10 Days Left, Blaze and Quinn!

Quinn & Blaze came to AAE when their family was preparing to downsize.  Another frequent reason horses end up at rescue is their family is moving and they can’t take their horse(s).  More often than not, people don’t realize how difficult it can be placing horses, especially older horses.  When the time comes to go, they have no place to go.  

Fortunately, Quinn and Blaze’s family was planning ahead, and when space became available, AAE was able to help, which is often not the case.  

Quinn and Blaze are looking for a new family to call their own.

Quinn is a very fancy 23 year old half Arab (registered) and half Saddlebred mare. Quinn tends to be higher energy and a bit impatient. Quinn was trained English and Western in the distant past, and she has been used in the arena and on trail.  However, she has not been ridden for about 5 years.  She was forward on trail, loved to go!  Quinn is a bit more complicated and needs at least an intermediate handler/rider.  She’s not always compatible with other horses, and is known to kick out at other horses when under saddle.  She has had a mild injury to her front right, but was lightly rideable in the past.  She was recently evaluated and okay’d for light riding.

11 Days Left, Smokey, Tilly, Mazie and Hildago!

Today’s story includes several horses, previously rescued, and they fell back on AAE this year as a sort of a safety net.   Too many times, people adopt a horse, and for one reason or another, and they are unable to keep the horse.  That’s how many end up here to begin with.

One of our disappointments in recent years is that AAE’s failed adoption rate has grown to about 10 percent.  Though AAE strives to match horses with forever homes, sometimes the situation is beyond anyone’s control.  Other times, it seems people far underestimate the effort, responsibility, commitment, and cost of horse ownership.  Sometimes the adopter overestimates or overstates his/her abilities, resulting in a mis-matched adoption.  Sadly, these things happen far more often than they should.

 12 Days Left, Legend and Jackson!

Last January, AAE learned of a call for help with 20 some horses that had been removed from the range in Nevada.  These were Virginia Range wild horses that were removed by the Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDOA).  The NDOA manages the horses that are on state lands.

In short, the NDOA has authority to remove horses that present a clear and continuing danger to motorists after failed relocation attempts.  Sadly, this group of horses had crossed the highway too many times and presented a threat to motorists.  The Virginia Range Sanctuary (VRS) works tirelessly to protect and advocated for the wild horses, and when they are removed, this amazing group works diligently to place the horses in forever homes.  When forever homes can’t be found, they look to other organizations to continue their work.

In January, one of our volunteers, Pam, reached out to VRS with interest in one of the horses that had been removed.  At the time, we were still hoping to help the Hallelujah Horses, but winter weather and the transport situation was not cooperating.  Since we hadn’t made progress in that situation, we refocused to a more local need.  Before you know it, we committed to four Virginia Range Horses that became five:  Onyx, Whisper, Annie, Legend and Jackson.  Today, we focus on Legend and Jackson.

14 Days Left, Lilly!

Sometimes good things take time.  AAE is committed to providing sanctuary to all horses we take in until a forever home can be found.  Like fine wine, Lilly’s adoption took time.  Lilly had been at AAE longer than any non-program horse.  She was one of the 2011 November Rescue Miracle horses rescued from the Nevada feedlot by Stinkin’ Rose Ranch.  She came to AAE in March 2012.

Lilly was untouchable and extremely fearful upon arrival.

He crossed the Rainbow Bridge this year, and he has been missed a ton.

 18 Days Left, Diego!
 Handsome Diego was originally part of a group of mustangs gathered by the USFS in New Mexico off the Jarita Mesa Wild Horse Territory in the El Rito Ranger District of the Carson National Forest.
After being offered for adoption by the USFS at two adoption events, he was not lucky enough to be chosen.
Diego, along with herdmates Scout, Diesel and several others, were taken to the Monty Roberts International Learning Center (MRILC) in Solvang, CA.

19 Days Left, Banjo!
Banjo, we said goodbye to another long timer at AAE

Banjo was relinquished by his owner in January 2014 after his owner developed health issues. He shared a pasture with another horse for 12 years, and he was very protective of his pasture-mate, much to his detriment.

Banjo had a very sweet side, but he also tested his handler, and displayed some naughty stud-like behavior. He was fearful of ropes, and he would challenged his handler when approached with one. We were told he was used as a child’s riding horse (hard to imagine) 12 years prior.

20 Days Left, Maci

Maci arrived at All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc. on September 4th, 2015.  She was one of four horses that came to AAE as part of a collaborative rescue effort in Fallon, NV that saved 56 horses at auction from purchase by a slaughter buyer.  Maci was a two year old, and the rest of the foursome included two yearlings, Bailey and Mazie, and Jolene, an older, experienced mare.  Maci, Bailey, and Mazie were not halterable when they arrived.

21 Days Left, Gentry and Foley

Last, but not least, AAE welcomed Gentry, a pretty young mare, and Foley, her little “red” colt from the DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary in September 2017. These are the last two, which made 13 horses helped from the DreamCatcher gang.  Nine have been adopted so far.  Can we make it 11?

Gentry had only recently been introduced to humans when she arrived, so she was a bit shy and unsure about the new humans that were caring for her. She is learning humans are not so scary, and she knows they’re the ones with the good stuff (food).  She always waits patiently at feeding time.

Upon dental exam, we learned she is only about 2-1/2 years old.
A baby with a baby, but she is such a good mama.

22 Days Left, Our handsome Ford!

The DreamCatcher connection continues…  
A handsome lil, young, gray gelding came to AAE after a failed attempt in a gentling program.  He landed at AAE for a layover in transportation with two other somewhat overwhelmingly dominant geldings as they were making their way back to DreamCatcher.  He seemed to find himself unwittingly between the antics of the other two, and the poor guy couldn’t seem to catch a break.  He had a kind eye and an inquisitive nature, but for intimidation by the other two.  We called him Ford.  He seemed to be a good fit here at AAE, so we held him back when the trailer came for the boys.

23 Days Left, Meet Cowboy!

About a month after lil’ Rascal came to AAE, DreamCatcher contacted AAE about another orphaned foal. He was born around May 5, 2017, but wasn’t found until May 8 when his mom was suffering from colic. She had been hiding him.  Mom was a senior mare, and her colic was severe.  Sadly, she had to go to horsey heaven, so her lil guy traveled all the way to AAE so he’d have a big sister to grow up with and lots of people to watch over and love him.

He arrived late on May 8th.  This lil guy had slightly bowed legs and an ol’ soul. It was like looking at an old cowboy.  Alas, AAE dubbed him Cowboy. After evaluation by the vet, and a selenium injection, he was on his way to happily ever after.  He quickly picked up drinking milk replacer from a bucket, and in a blink, he stole everyone’s heart.
