Co-Sponsor the Bi-Partisan PAST Act of 2019!

The following is from the American Horse Council:

American Horse Council Action Alert

Tell Your Senators to Co-Sponsor the Bi-Partisan PAST Act of 2019!

Following up on commitments made to the horse industry earlier this year, Sens. Crapo (R-ID) and Warner (D-VA) have led a bipartisan charge to re-introduce the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act of 2019 (S. 1007).  Other original co-sponsors include Sens. Blumenthal (D-CT), Casey (D-PA), Collins (R-ME), Daines (R-MT), Feinstein (D-CA), Markey (D-MA), Moran (R-KS), Toomey (R-PA) and Wyden (D-OR).  If your senator is an original cosponsor, be sure to contact his or her office to express thanks for taking the lead on equine welfare issues.  If you don’t see your senator’s name listed, be sure to take this opportunity to send a letter to your lawmakers’ offices to urge co-sponsorship of the PAST Act.

As you know, S. 1007 will strengthen the Horse Protection Act and finally end the soring of Tennessee Walking Horses, Spotted Saddle Horses, and Racking Horses. The American Horse Council, along with most major national horse show organizations and state and local organizations, supports the PAST Act. To send a letter to your senators urging them to sign on as co-sponsors and move this important bill forward, please click on the following link:

New Agreement for Virginia Range Mustangs Fertility Control Program

On Tuesday, AWHC and the Nevada Department of Agriculture signed a new agreement to implement a humane fertility control management program for the Virginia Range horses. The program aims to reduce population growth rates in the historic herd, which lives in a 300,000-acre range increasingly impacted by rapid development in the northern Nevada area. Our program’s certified darters will begin working this week in cooperation with the tech company, Blockchains, LLC – the largest landowner in the Virginia Range — to deliver the PZP immunocontraceptive vaccine to wild horses in Innovation Park in Storey County! Read more about this critically important program below.

 

AB 128 Passes Out of California’s Assembly Parks and Wildlife Committee

AB 128, a bill to increase protections from slaughter for California’s wild and domestic horses cleared its first hurdle on Tuesday when it passed out of the California Assembly Parks, Water and Wildlife Committee on a 10-1 vote (with 3 abstentions). AWHC is proud to sponsor this bill in conjunction with bill author Assemblyman Todd Gloria, who has been a leading voice for the welfare of California’s horses and an outspoken opponent of the federal government’s plan to sell California wild horses from the Devil’s Garden Territory without limitation on slaughter. Read more about the bill and the latest developments below.

IN BETWEEN ORPHAN FOAL RESCUES – ANOTHER 911 CALL, A STARVING GELDING AND A PONY IN THE “SHIP PEN” NEED YOUR HELP TODAY!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

 

 

“BANDIT”, shown above, needs your help today!!Although we are on standby for more babies, I couldn’t ignore this beautiful boy. Seeing the despair in his eyes, and knowing that we can not only change that, but keep him off the slaughter truck sent me running to the computer. (Ok, so I can barely walk, but y’all know what i mean.) In all seriousness though, the clock is ticking…

I had to make an immediate decision, so once again I based it on faith. Faith that my Chilly Pepper Family will step up and make it possible to save not only him, but the 3 year old pony who was also scheduled to ship to slaughter. However, we can’t do it without y’all making it happen. Our budget is tapped out, and at this point, we simply don’t have funds to save these kids

Please help us save them. It is absolutely “baby time”, but every single life matters, and when God puts a certain one in front of us, I have to try and do everything I can to help.

So Please, help me, help him. Can you imagine how horrible just the trip to the slaughter plant would be in his condition? And then what would be waiting for him? It isn’t right, and since he and the little pony are “in front of us”, let’s save their lives too.

The babies are all hanging in there. Most of them have had scours and been sick at some point, and Goldilocks is still really struggling, as some of the others are. I have another vet bill for about $1500+, and between all the babies, there have been lots of vet visits. We are going through milk at a crazy pace, and so appreciate any and all help with these ongoing expenses.

As always, the Chilly Pepper Family Rocks!

Thank you!!

Below, the SNOW BABIES y’all saved!!

Update: Petition to Save Onaqui

1

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

The BLM is full steam ahead with plans to round up and capture 80% of the famous Onaqui herd in Utah. But we can’t let up.

We still need 5,318 more signatures to reach our goal before April 5, when we are delivering our petition and holding a rally outside of the BLM’s Salt Lake City office. We need your help.

Add your name now, and take a stand to protect the Onaqui wild herd.

There are only 486 wild horses in the Onaqui herd. If the BLM gets their way, only 120 horses will remain on over 240,000 acres. 

There are humane ways to manage wild horse populations that the BLM is just not using. Instead, the agency wants to move forward with an inhumane roundup, using helicopters to chase the horses for miles. Once captured, the horses will be forced to spend the rest of their lives in holding pens and pastures, adding to the millions of dollars taxpayers are forced to spend on this ineffective and mismanaged federal program.

The Onaqui horses are irreplaceable – not just to America as a symbol of our freedom and our heritage, but to the local communities who benefit from the tourism dollars brought by wild horse admirers and photographers.

Please help us keep the Onaqui wild horses wild. Sign our petition to save this iconic herd from devastation.

Thank you,

Suzanne

Barney Update!

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

Blue Update!

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

Our most important fundraising event is coming soon.

Congress Passes Spending Bill for Department of Interior

In what might be considered a Valentine’s Day miracle, the House passed a spending package last night which included funding for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Department of the Interior, completing Congressional action to avert a government shutdown with barely a day to spare. So what does this mean for wild horses and burros? Click below for more information.

Pine Nut Roundup Continues in Nevada

On February 7, the BLM began the roundup and removal of wild horses from the Pine Nut Herd Management Area (HMA) in Nevada. The BLM intends to round up 575 of the wild horses and burros from their home on our public lands in this area. So far 316 horses have been captured, and inclement weather has postponed the operation for the last three days. Read our field observers’ reports from the roundup below.

Navy Plans Expansion Putting Wild Horses at Risk 

On February 14, 2019, AWHC submitted comments on the Navy’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement for a proposed project to expand the Fallon Range Training Complex in Nevada. There are 24 Herd Areas, totaling approximately 1.5 million acres, and 24 Herd Management Areas, totaling approximately 2.4 million acres that are within the project’s region of influence. AWHC has asked the Navy to further explain any management plans it has for the wild horses and burros within the zone of influence for its proposed project.

CAN WE SAVE ARTIE? 48 HOURS TO SAY YES OR NO!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Another call – another life to save. Artie needs our help and he needs it now.

Artie is a Thoroughbred – Percheron cross. Sounds like he could be a big boy. Artie has to be off the property immediately, and Animal Control is waiting in the wings. His owner cannot take him with her. She loves him dearly, but he needs special help right now.

I believe he is approximately 11 years old? He is still a stallion and has been brutally traumatized, leaving him in a state where no one has been able to handle him. Dogs killed his pasture mates and there has been more trauma from nearby folks.

He can not be haltered at this time, and Animal Control has indicated it is “now or never” from what I understand. He needs his hoofers trimmed badly, and none of the local farriers are willing to work with him anymore. As they are unable to halter him, he can not be handled or taken to a vet for sedation.

Being a stallion that age, and not being afraid or respectful like a wild horse would be, he has the potential to be extremely dangerous if he is not handled carefully. He loves his mama, but sadly through no fault of her own, she cannot provide what he needs.

This rescue will be expensive when you add up fuel, lodging, and everything else that goes along with this kind of rescue. As usual, we are willing to step up and do everything we can to save his life. It is going to be roughly 1600 miles driving in the middle of all of our other deliveries, and that is going to cost quite a bit not to mention special vetting, sedation, getting his hoofers trimmed, and whatever else we will need to be able to safely handle him for his much needed care.

This beautiful boy needs our help. We were contacted specifically due to our experience and the fact that others have tried to do what needs to be done and have not been successful.

So the question once again is…… CAN WE SAVE ARTIE? Matt and I are standing by and ready to roll. Apparently we are not quite tired enough, lol. But in all seriousness, WE ARE HIS LAST CHANCE. PLEASE HELP IF YOU WANT US TO SAVE ARTIE!

PAUITE BABIES SAVED SWEETHEART AND STAR FIRE NEED YOUR HELP! RIP MY BEAUTIFUL BLACK BANDIT :(

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

YOU DID IT!! We rescued ALL 32 babies thanks to your love and support. Matt and I picked up 24 babies and brought them back to Chilly Pepper in Golconda. A friend of ours helped out by placing 8 in California, and babies are heading out to many different places. As always, we have incurred all the costs, so THANK YOU FOR SAVING THESE LIVES!

UPDATE – STAR FIRE & SWEETHEART. Both these babies are in extremely critical condition. Poor Star Fire tried her best to crash this morning. She was not getting up and her body temperature was dangerously low. Thankfully, we were able to help her bounce back. But that is what these babies do. They are like roller coasters, and it is literally hour by hour at this point.

So please say your prayers and if you can, help us provide the special care and feed that they need. Little things like running the heat lamps, tank heaters etc. can add a strain on the budget.

We had the vet here two days ago getting the Pauite babies ready to travel. They really like to eat, and we are going through about $3800 a month for hay alone, taking care of the horses here. So we really appreciate any help any one wants to give to keep these little bellies full.

Getting the Coggins (blood tests required for Health Certificates so horses can be adopted and travel) and helping Black Bandit go home to his Mama and the Angels also cost close to $1400.

We have a lot of folks willing to help take on some of these babies, and of course 99% are Out of State, _but it is going to cost quite a bit to transport them.

However, thankfully they will then be off of our books, as we still have 11 waiting for pickup in WA State. They had colds so could not travel prior to this._

As always, there seems to be heartbreak beyond bearing. One of our beautiful little colts had some extremely painful and serious injuries. We were prepared to try everything to save him, but it was not meant to be. The second he looked at me I fell in love with him. I honestly don’t know how to deal with all this hurt, but there isn’t time to stop.

We still need to get the nursery set up in preparedness for the babies that will be coming in soon. I am also working on the end of year donation receipts.THANK YOU AGAIN for ALL YOU DO! YOU are the reason this rescue does so much. Matt and I could not do it without you.

If y’all want to help us take care of these kids until they are placed, along with the other kids, we so appreciate it. We are praying for the day we don’t need to constantly fund raise for these precious souls, and they are safe from the evils of slaughter, but until then, we will do our best to “git ‘er done”.

Forever In Our Hearts, Beau

0

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

unnamed-1

Ol’ Beau, Forever in Our Hearts!

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

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

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

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

14 Hours to Commit to Saving the 32 PAIUTE BABIES from last weeks Round Up

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

Another call, another deadline. I was given until 6 am tomorrow morning to commit to a package deal OF ALL THE BABIES left from the “Stolen Horse Roundup” that happened last week .

We have a chance to save ALL 32 babies. I have to commit to purchasing the entire bunch by morning, but will have until Monday to come up with the funds.

We are in WA in the middle of another rescue, but are willing to step up, as always. We cannot begin to do this on our own. We need to raise close to $20,000. We need to purchase them, have enough funds to ensure we can feed and care for them until they are adopted, as well as transport them. It is a big responsibility to take on this many kids. So I have to know we can afford to feed them,

If we don’t raise enough to save them all, we will pray that we have a chance to save some of them, and will save as many as we can afford to.

For everyone who’s heart has been crushed by this illegal roundup, here is YOUR CHANCE TO ACTUALLY HELP, Step up and make a REAL DIFFERENCE. Preserve what is left of your heritage, YOUR HORSES,

We need help with funding, and ALL of these babies need a home. Bring them back to what they know!

AWHC Legal Team Scores Another Victory!

The U.S. District Court in Wyoming just ruled in our favor and stopped the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) from not counting foals in roundup removal totals, putting a stop to the tactic that the BLM employed to round up more horses than legally allowed from our public lands. This is a precedent setting win! Read more:

 

Surprise Roundup Devastates Local NV Herd

Residents of the rural community of Palomino Valley near Reno are devastated this week after a surprise roundup conducted by the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe last weekend. Horses were driven off private land onto reservation land and captured for slaughter. The roundup left the Valley devoid of its locally cherished wild horses and ensnared several privately-owned horses in the process.

ON SITE WITH THE 3 MUSKETEERS 2 IN LIFE THREATENING CONDITION CAN YOU HELP US SAVE THEIR LIVES?

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

IN THE NICK OF TIME? OR ARE WE TOO LATE? 3 LIVES AT STAKE.

We have been working behind the scenes to rescue these 3 babies for some time. I received a phone call about some kids who needed help asap. As always, it was a life and death situation and many of the moms were already deceased.

Today, only a few hours ago, we finally were able to pick up the THREE MUSKETEERS. These are some of the most precious babies I have ever seen, and we are currently on our way to WSU to see if we can save their lives Although we LOVE our local vet, one of the folks who is helping with this rescue has family/friends at WSU and requested we take the kids there this time, as there is a good chance that Honey Bear may need hospitalization..

Honey Bear has a horrific injury to her leg, and although we started to take care of it on our own as is necessary so many times, this is extremely life threatening as it appears that the bone may be infected. She has had this injury for months and never received any care or antibiotics, and it may cost her her life.

PLEASE help the Three Musketeers, Honey Bear, Star Fire and Sweetheart. They have been through heck, and Honey Bear, who has the most severe injury, was often seen laying beside her dead mother. It was a heartbreaking situation, kind of like South Dakota, but what is important now is that we concentrate all our energy on saving these babies. Star Fire was also starved for months and we are not sure if too much damage has been done or not. THEY NEED YOUR HELP NOW!

We are about 2 hours from WSU. (Washington State Equine Hospital). I am praying for enough of a budget to save these girls. Thank you!

LoneStar, Your Last Horse Helped In 2018

 Donate Today!

It’s AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018:

Lonestar

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

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

 

‘Tis the Season, time to join AAE every day this month as we share stories straight from the barn to show how your support has helped horses in 2018.   This year was very special, and there are so many stories to be thankful for!
As we count down to 2019, please help us prepare for another year of helping horses.  Your donations will assure we have ample funding for veterinary care to
help horses in need as we move into a new year.

A Special Tribute

0

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

unnamed-1

It’s AAE story-time!  Horses of 2018:

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

Marshmallow

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

Kasey

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

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

KAYA

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

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

Jesse and Jengo

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

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

 

‘Tis the Season, time to join AAE every day this month as we share stories straight from the barn to show how your support has helped horses in 2018.   This year was very special, and there are so many stories to be thankful for!
As we count down to 2019, please help us prepare for another year of helping horses.  Your donations will assure we have ample funding for veterinary care to
help horses in need as we move into a new year.

Beau Needs A Santa!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

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

Beau

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

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

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

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

Beau recovered very well and slowly redeveloping his svelte lil’ bod!
Well, does svelte have fat pads?  Beau is a lovely ol’ guy.  He loves attention and really enjoys a long grooming session.  He was ridden a lot in his younger days.  His last riding relationship was a couple years ago with a 12 year old girl in a lease situation.  We were told it was a great relationship, but not much more about his girl’s experience or what activities they did, only that he rode very well for his age.

In his younger years, Beau was part of a three horse team that rode across the US on the Pony Express Trail.  He rode about 800 of the 2000 miles.  About seven years ago, he had a bout of laminitis/founder, but thankfully, he recovered very well. Dr. Stolba provided care for this guy back then, but unfortunately, when he arrived at AAE, she hadn’t seen him for a few years.  His hooves didn’t appear to have been trimmed for a while.  Updated radiographs showed no obvious changes in his hooves since his episode seven years ago.  He had thin soles, and he was a tad tender footed, so he had shoes placed on his fronts.

Beau is current with vaccines, deworming, and hoof and dental care.  He has a microchip in place.  He has very good ground manners, he ties and stands for the farrier.  With a long history of riding, he should load and trailer fine, but hasn’t yet been loaded since he arrived.  He was tested for Cushing’s and results were negative.  Because he has only a few teeth left, he needs a strictly pelleted diet and a diet that is appropriate for a horse that has foundered.  His future housing should not be in a green, grassy pasture.

Beau is looking for a new home where he will be doted on and pampered like the good ol’ guy that he is.  He might have some light riding with a light rider in his future, but priority should be a solid companion home, and the riding should be a bonus (not a requirement).  Beau should NOT be an only horse. During his time with AAE, he has bonded tightly to his neighbors, so a home with at least a couple other horses might be best.  He gets anxious when he is in his paddocks and his buddies leave, are taken out/away or wander away from him.  He does fine when he is taken away from his paddock.
