The following is from All About Equine Rescue:
For nearly 15 years, we have worked together to transform the lives of hundreds of horses. Today, we can continue to give more horses a second chance at a healthy, happy, and love-filled life, and you can make it happen!
Horses like Sierra.
Sierra was one of AAE’s first horses. In 2009 she was rescued from a feedlot with two foals. One was her own, and the other was an orphaned foal whom she had taken as her own while at the feedlot. Thankfully, we were able to provide the soft landing they needed.
Sierra was emaciated and weak. Despite being little more than skin and bones, and though she was tired and depleted, Sierra never gave up on her boys. She allowed both to nurse enough to keep them alive. She had likely been a broodmare, and she had little, if any, handling. Sierra was full of parasites, and her feet were tender because of huge abscesses in her neglected hooves. Even more sadly, shortly after her arrival, she delivered a stillborn foal.
Despite her rough beginning, Sierra made progress, albeit slowly. She gained weight, her steps improved, and she eventually learned to trust more. Our volunteers loved her and wanted to keep this brave, stoic, and loving mom safe forever, so she became a sanctuary resident.
Her boys were adopted to their adoring humans, and over the years, Sierra has continued to share her maternal side with younger horses who come to AAE. She shows them proper horse behavior and loves them as her own. Now she spends her days in pasture with Barney by her side.
Sierra is here today because people cared enough to give her a second chance at a good life
On average, it costs about $8 each day for feed and health care for horses at AAE. Expenses add up quickly when caring for 50+/- horses and other animals, and even more so when diagnostics, treatments, medications, surgery, and emergency care are needed.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 today and we need your help to get there!
Any amount makes a HUGE difference for the horses! No donation is too small. In fact, if every one of our followers made a $1 donation, we could surpass our GivingTuesday goal by thousands.
