Zena Is Home!

Thanks to you, Zena is home and recovering!

We are grateful! Zena came home to AAE yesterday after a nine-day stay at Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center.

She went in for treatment last week for a large, deep ulcer her right eye. She has also been treated for uveitis in the left eye, and while at the clinic, they found a pinpoint-sized ulcer on the left eye. On Saturday morning, we got the call that the eye with the ulcer ruptured, and before long, Zena had surgery to remove her right eye. Fortunately, the ulcer in the left eye resolved quickly!

We’re happy she’s home, and we hope she’s happy to be back with her AAE family.

We’re not sure! Well, she’s her big, beasty self, but she seems a bit nervous and agitated. She’ll settle in and adapt soon. Losing vision is not something anyone wants to experience. Fortunately, horses can do very well with one eye. Many of you remember Ralphie, and some even remember Angus? Zena will get better, so continue to send more of your healing energies her way.

Heartfelt thanks to all that have donated and shared in support of her treatment and care costs, and now surgery costs.

Thank you for helping us

For the LOVE of the HORSE, you came TOGETHER!

Because of your generous donations, opens, shares, positive thoughts, and simple kindness, you raised over $22,000 to help make a better world for horses.

“Thank You”, those two little words that mean so very, VERY much!

ZENA UPDATE!

Zena is undergoing another procedure today to protect her eye while she tries to heal. The ulcer in her right eye is dangerously deep. Vision in her left eye is already at risk due to uveitis, so we need to do what we can to make sure the “good” eye is able to heal. One of the surgeon’s at Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center will suture her eyelids partially closed to protect her eye and keep it moist. As with all procedures, there are risks, so this big girl needs some healing thoughts her way.

Thank you all for making this possible for Zena.

If you missed the opportunity to give big yesterday, you can still help Zena by giving today.

Exciting Announcements from AAE!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Gamilah Unbridled, The Journey Starts Today

We’ve got some exciting news! Patrick Sullivan of Modern Day Horsemanship will be visiting AAE April 8-12.

Patrick and his beloved horse, Gamilah (or Gami), are kicking off an epic adventure across America in pursuit of LIBERTY! It starts TODAY! Patrick and Gami have an incredibly special bond, and he wants to share it with you in his journey of a lifetime, Gamilah Unbridled. Their journey will take them 2500 miles across Highway 50, from California to Kentucky, as they promote the art of liberty, connecting with horses without the use of ropes or control devices. The most remarkable part their journey is Patrick will be riding Gami bareback AND bridleless the entire way.

As much as we’d like to invite everyone to participate, due to COVID-19 and other circumstances, this is a private training activity at AAE. However, Patrick’s journey will be shared via livestream and video on his Facebook Page, Gamilah Unbridled.

Because Patrick’s love of horses was molded by his experience working as a trainer at WindyHill Equine Rescue and Rehoming, Patrick wants to feature the work rescues do. Patrick selected one rescue in each state to stop and spend five days working with five horses to share what he and Gami have learned about the liberty training. All education and work along the way will be FREE of charge to the organizations, and donations during these events will go to each individual non-profit!

The deep connection between horses and humans is what inspires our every day work at AAE, and we are honored to be part of Patrick and Gami’s journey. The five lucky AAE horses selected to participate with Patrick are DieselJackClareChesney, and Teea. Patrick’s team will document each day, and by the end of the five days, we’ll see incredible results with each of the horses. Patrick and Gami’s adventure is dedicated to those who Dare to Dream. If you have a passion and love for horses, and you want to develop a deeper connection and stronger bond with your horse(s), be sure to follow their journey through social media. Feel free to send him a message, a word of encouragement, or a donation to help cover their expenses. You can even bring your horse out for a ride to join them for part of their trip, but be sure to contact Patrick directly.

Boots and Bling 2021, It’s BACK!!

We are so excited to announce that our 8th Annual Boots and Bling event will be Saturday August 21st! We are currently planning for this event to be in-person at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds. This event will feature a BBQ dinner, live and silent auctions, and stories from our barn including horses, volunteers and forever homes. We hope you will be able to join us!

We are looking for volunteers to help with event planning. Do you have experience with event planning, sponsorship and auction solicitation, event decor, ticket sales, and/or volunteer coordinating? If you are interested in helping please email BandB@allaboutequine.org

Adoption Story: Ralphie

Ralphie arrived at AAE last October after his family could no longer manage his health issues. Thanks to your support, he was able to have life-saving surgery to remove his eye due to a cancerous mass on his lower right eyelid. He also had a mass removed from on his hind pastern. He seemed to be doing well post-op; unfortunately, complications arose only a few days after surgery. His eye orbit developed a hematoma and subsequently excessive drainage. He returned to the hospital for nine days. Once back at AAE, thanks to the outpouring of support he received from all of you, he adapted very well to his new life with “univision”. His leg healed very nicely, too.

As best we knew, Ralphie didn’t have much training, so we sent him to work with one of our trainers, Ashley, who was one of our youth adopters from about 10 years ago. She started her training career with her adopted horse, Takela – her heart horse – and she did an amazing job! Sadly, she recently lost Takela to a very bad colic. Ralphie made great progress from the get-go. Much to their surprise, she and her family were so smitten with this big fella, they wanted make him part of their family, and so it was! The universe has such an incredible way of bringing us just what we need, exactly when we need it!

Boots & Bling Update

0

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

During these uncertain times, our thoughts are with you, our AAE community, your families and friends.
We have YOU, thank you!

 

 Important Updates

Out of an abundance of caution for your well-being and that of our volunteers, participants, supporters, and vendors, AAE made the difficult decision to postpone our Boots & Bling event from May 2, 2020 to a late Summer/early Fall date.
Due to the uncertainties with the current COVID-19 situation, our event venue has a scheduling moratorium in place.  As soon as we can we can move forward with scheduling, taking into consideration the safety of everyone involved, we will announce a new date.
Boots and Bling is critical to AAE’s annual funding, and it is also a very important event where all of AAE’s supporters can come together.
We assure you, Boots will not be canceled.
The BEST part is we’ll have more time to create a BETTER event!!
We hope you are as excited as we are to get the date set!

Again, out of an abundance of caution for our volunteer and community safety,
we have implemented numerous measures related to COVID-19 which have impacted our day to day activities at AAE.
Though we have many horses looking for homes, our ADOPTION VISITS are temporarily on hold.
If you are interested in adopting a horse, we are still working remotely to discuss adoption interest and review inquiries.
Our VOLUNTEER ACTIVITIES have been temporarily limited to small teams
carrying out essential activities to assure the horses are well cared for.
We continue accessing veterinary, hoof and dental care, as needed.
 
NEW VOLUNTEER ORIENTATIONS have been temporarily postponed;
however, we are still collecting information from
anyone interested in volunteering, once we resume normal day-to-day activities.
AAE’S USED TACK STORE is temporarily closed.
We look forward to re-opening and resuming store hours as we can.
Store sales and tack donations are vital to our fundraising efforts.

April’s QUARTERLY VOLUNTEER MEETING has been canceled.

We’ll resume quarterly meetings as soon as appropriate.
 
We know these are trying times, and we are all feeling the impacts on many ways.
For the good of the horses!

We thank you for your understanding.

We will get through this together!
From all of us at All About Equine, thank you for your continuing support!
If you’re able to continue support us through these uncertain times,
please consider donating today.

When you think of COVID-19, think of GLITTER

 

Unless you’re conducting essential activities, please stay at home and help flatten the curve!

 

SADLY, WE LOST HOPE,

but we haven’t lost hope

Though things were looking good for HOPE, they took a quick turn, and we were left with no good options.
HOPE came to us because of an eye issue that had been neglected for at least the last year and a half,
likely much longer.

After initial evaluation, no definitive cause could be determined with certainty (e.g. injury, infection, tumor, etc).
We made the decision to move forward with surgery to remove her eye.  Unfortunately, the surgeon found a large tumor (melanoma) behind the eye.  Because melanomas are not typically lethal, and because they can “respond in different ways” (e.g. become dormant, grow slowly, or grow rapidly), the surgeon felt the chance for a comfortable life was possible, and he closed the incision site, giving HOPE a chance.

 

HOPE made it through surgery without issues.  She was thriving.  Though swollen, she seemed much more comfortable, was eating well, and she was enjoying lots of TLC.  Two weeks passed after surgery, swelling was reducing, and HOPE was doing great!

A few days later, we noticed some new drainage above HOPE’s incision.  A quick trip to the vet for rebandaging resulted in some unanticipated sad news.  It appeared the skin/tissue was dying.

When the doc removed the sutures and the dying tissue, he discovered the tumor had grown rapidly.
The recently empty orbit was now filled with tumor.  Though we hoped for no to slow growth, sadly, luck wasn’t on HOPE’s side.  At the rate the tumor had grown, it was highly unlikely the eye would heal, and the tumor was so large and deep, and there was nothing more we could do other than help her across the Rainbow Bridge.
HOPE lost her battle, but our hope lives on.  HOPE touched our lives in ways we’ll never forget.
Farewell sweet girl, you deserved so much better.
We’re thankful HOPE had some relief, good food, and her final days were filled with love and kindness through the end.
Thank you for helping HOPE.

On another kind of BOOTS note,

we need your ol’ boots!

If you’re like many during the “stay at home” situation, and you’re doing some pre-spring cleaning….
We need your gently used, unwanted boots!
   
Our decor plan for Boots & Bling includes what, of course?
Boots! and we still need some more.
Also, the if you’re familiar with the R3C Wild Horse Program at the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Center, the inmate trainers are sorely in need of men’s western boots. They currently have 8 inmate mustang trainers, and they need boots. The soles are literally falling off of their boots. The program relies on donations of used boots and thrift store finds. But their sources have been slim pickins, especially since everything is now shut down due to COVID.
If you happen to have any Western boots you no longer need, we can use them for our Boots & Bling event or pass them forward to the R3C program.  These men work hard, without complaint (even about the condition of their boots) & are changing their lives while gentling wild mustangs.
After Boots & Bling, we’ll transfer the decor boots to AAE’s Used Tack Store, where all sales benefit the horses at AAE.  We’ll also be an ongoing source of men’s boots to support the R3C program.  You can donate boots for the R3C program at the store (once we resume store hours).  Be sure to specify the boots are for R3C on your donation form.

2020 Brings More Horses in Need

0

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

 

  

As we move into 2020 there are many more horses in need…

Meet our newest intake, Cody

                                            
Cody came to AAE after long-time family health issues with his owner and the passing of his caretaker.
Cody is a 1999 Arabian gelding, about 15.1 hh.  We were told he was raced as a youngster, but an injury ended his career.  He has been a pasture pet ever since.  Cody was much in need of dental care and he was being fed an alfalfa diet.  He was started on a pellet diet upon intake.  His teeth were floated, and he was vaccinated and dewormed.   His hooves were in pretty good shape, and he’s on the farrier schedule in a few days.  Cody now has a microchip in place, and he will be ready for adoption soon.  Cody is a sweet, youthful ol’ guy with plenty of energy.  He enjoys people, loves grooming and attention, and his ground manners are fairly good.  So far, he’s shown no signs of lameness, but we’ll wait for his weight improve before asking much of him.
Cody needs a sponsor until a permanent home can be found!

Did you know you can SPONSOR a horse at AAE? 

If you want to support AAE, our Sponsor program is one of our favorite ways to involve our community.  By sponsoring a horse, you are supporting our operations by the average monthly cost of care for a specific horse.  You can do this by selecting a specific horse and making a monthly donation in his or her name.  The monthly cost of care is estimated considering the costs for the horses diet, basic care needs (e.g. hoof care, dental care, vaccines, deworming, etc.), medical needs (e.g. supplements, daily medications, daily/monthly treatments, special care, etc.).  These needs can change over the course of a horse’s stay at AAE (from intake to adoption).
A full sponsor covers it all.  Likewise, more than one partial sponsor can cover it all.
You can sponsor any horse for any amount you choose, from $1 to a million dollars ;)
Our GOAL is to have full sponsors for every horse.  This will assure we have ample funding for the proper care of all of our horses, and your help makes it possible to help more horses.
Lots of littles make one big, so please don’t feel your amount is too small!
The best way to sponsor is to avoid processing fees by setting up an automatic payment via your bank’s bill pay system.  You can also set up a monthly payment on our website via PayPal.

All of these horses are in need of full or partial sponsors.

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!!
