A Favorite Christmas Story

RASCAL & MADDIE

Maddie and Rascal have been buds for a while. They are two very special girls that both had very rough entries into this world, but they are doing very well. This year, the best gift ever, they went to their new home together! Rascal’s story is a long one, poor lil’ thing went through so much, but her will to live was ferocious.

Rascal faced a lot of challenges from her first day on Earth! Many of you may have heard her story, but reminiscing about Rascal never gets old. AAE got a call for help with on April 5, 2017. Rascal was just hours old; she became an orphan when her mom scaled a six foot paddock and left her behind. She was located over five hours away, so we mobilized and met in Reno to pick her up. Her lil’ body was very weak, and she couldn’t get up on her own.

First stop from Reno was Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center. Surprisingly, her initial outlook wasn’t horrible. She was diagnosed with selenium deficiency…

She was hospitalized. The initial outlook was fairly good, but after getting blood results, it was bad. Then, we got call at midnight and her blood values were moving in the wrong direction. We were preparing for not so good news in the morning. HOWEVER, Rascal had different plans. By morning, she was fighting back, she was drinking milk replacer on her own. As it turns out, she was fighting a severe selenium deficiency that caused white muscle disease, which also put her kidneys in distress. Her blood levels started trending in the right direction. There was no doubt she wanted to live! She was a FIGHTER, and she battled to live.  Docs thought she was likely she’s dealing with the results of being rejected by mom, stresses of transport, and secondary effects resulting from mom’s malnourishment and selenium deficiency. but they were hopeful that with 5 +/- days of hospitalization and supportive care, she had a good shot at a relatively normal life. A BIG THANK YOU to LBEMC for their quick actions and the outstanding care provided for this little filly.

The days passed, and her progress was steady but slow. After 13 days in the hospital, she still couldn’t stand up on her own. We brought her home to continue treatment. That basically meant 24/7 care, but fear not, AAE volunteers rose to the occasion. This little gal had someone with her at all times. Rascal was playful and sassy, can’t you tell? We had so much fun with her, and she was a super sport!

Even this special volunteer kept a watchful eye. Like Holli, volunteers slept beside her at night, not the least bit phased by the enormous rats that ran across the rails of the barn and the roof. Rascal had to be lifted to her feet every two hours. Once standing, she was fine. She would romp around the inside of the barn at night, and she run around the outside of the barn by day.

After 13 days at LBEMC and another 13 days at AAE, Rascal was able to STAND up on her own.

As if selenium deficiency, white muscle disease, and distressed kidneys weren’t enough, Rascal had several more hurdles along the way including an umbilicus infection, two bouts with c. diff bacteria (diarrhea doesn’t begin to describe it), large umbilical hernia (some would say she was a he) followed by surgical repair, an enormous hoof abscess, then chronic diarrhea for nearly a year.  Once the diarrhea resolved, so did all of her health issues. Today, she is healthy and thriving (and she passes normal poop). For Rascal, that’s reason to celebrate.

Beautiful girl about a year old.

Growing up

Love this girl.

She had a lot of interest and a few adoptions fell through for one reason or another

Then this happened! We couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity for Rascal and Maddie.

This video never gets old

Maddie

You met Maddie with her mom, Tae, earlier this month.

Maddie was only a few days old when she arrived at AAE. This beautiful little gal was being rejected by her mom. Mom was young, and this was probably her first foal, but sheesh, she needs to eat (drink). It was truly hard to watch.

Mom would bite her every time she tried to nurse, and she had little sores all over her tiny body. Sadly, as we were observing, mom was escalating, and it seemed to be getting more serious.

Smart little Maddie knew how to think outside of the box; she was creative. She learned she could come in the back side to find a teat. Unfortunately, she didn’t nurse like that all the time. After a while, mom picked her up with her teeth, and she tossed her. Heartbreaking to see! At that point, it didn’t look like these two would work out, so we separated them. An hour, maybe two passed.

Without baby beside her, Mom began to worry. We tried re-uniting them once more, and thankfully, everything changed. From that point on, these two were a great pair.

Soon it was time to stand on her own, but really, Maddie has always been her own girl. She’s smart, witty, sassy, and strong (minded). This is going to be one dynamo partner, but you’ll need to assure her you’re the better leader.

Before long, it was time for school, but this lil gal is still young, so she learned the basics, then she waited. And, while she waited, you know what happened next! So grateful! Happily ever after!

RED

Red originally came to AAE back in July 2015. He had been at the Monty Roberts International Learning Center (MRILC) for several months. His owner passed while he was at MRILC for gentling. He had been rescued, but we none of the information about him or his rescue situation was available.

Though Red spent quite a bit of time at MRILC, he had a difficult time accepting human interaction. While at MRILC, he experienced a lot. He was socialized, learned basic groundwork and long-lining, and he was introduced to a saddle (no rider). All that considered, when he arrived at AAE, it was like starting over. It took tremendous time overcoming fear and accepting humans. All of his vet care was updated when he was ready.

Red was adopted by a youth adopter in Fall of 2016. and his progress continued, but due to the life circumstances and the realities of work and finances that come with adulthood, his young adopter was unable to continue to meet Red’s needs. Red continued building trust and learning about saddle work, even carrying a rider a few times.

Red returned to AAE the beginning of January 2018. His vet care was updated again, including dental and hoof care, vaccines, and deworming. Though disappointing, we were glad Red was back at AAE. He was always a volunteer favorite, and he was enjoyed by all of the horses,too.

Such a handsome guy! Not long after returning to AAE, Red suffered a freak pasture injury. Veterinary exam indicated he ruptured his peroneus tertius muscle.  This usually happens when the hock is hyperextended, likely in a quick turn or change of direction. Thankfully, it was a soft tissue injury, and not the ghastly fracture it appeared to be.  Red was on stall rest for more than a year, but he healed well.

Red is a super kind and willing guy, but still has considerable difficulty accepting human interaction and trusting that no harm will come to him. First contact with him is like 50 first dates…or 593,625 first dates by now. He snorts when approached. He snorts whenever he encounters something new….even if he’s seen it a million times. Once he’s been touched by human (or monster), he is relatively easy to halter, and he seems to enjoy grooming and hanging with humans. With his injury, after a few months, he was haltered and hand-walked almost daily, but you would never know. He still acts like it’s something new.

Red is sweet, smart, and honest, however he is reactive and perpetually snorty. He is always respectful of his handler’s space. Red was looking for a home where he would be loved for him and not what he could do, a home where Red would be a companion first, potential riding horse or not. Thankfully, Red finally found his person a short while ago!!

Hello from Hearty Hardy!

HARDY

Hardy came to AAE in July 2019. He retired from the Folsom Police Department in 2017. Hardy was originally going to retire at AAE, but plans for him changed. We were thrilled to finally welcome him about two years later.

We recently searched the Standdardbred registry and learned he was born March 9, 1997 in Marlborough, CT. His name was HeartofHearts. Very suiting for such a loving guy! We were told he was a pacer on the harness track until he was 11 or 12, before he was retired to another rescue where he was loved by volunteers. He was subsequently adopted to the Folsom PD where he served as a police mount until 2017.

We were told he was a pacer on the harness track until he was 11 or 12, before he was retired to another rescue where he was loved by volunteers. He was subsequently adopted to the Folsom PD where he served as a police mount until 2017.

He was on the thin side and arthritic on arrival, so our first priority for this big love was getting him back on track with his joint injections to make him more comfortable. At retirement, he was getting bilateral hock and joint injections, but those had not been continued for an unknown period. He was also started back on daily Equioxx tabs to help, too. Then we updated his vaccines and hoof and dental care updated, he was dewormed, and he had a microchip “installed”.

Hardy is a beloved volunteer favorite, and the feeling is mutual. When he’s not getting the love of our volunteers, these days, we find this big hearted guy wandering the barn and keeping a watch over our operations and all of the horses.

He’s also known as our “taster”. As if we were a winery, he takes a little nip of everything he sees (except his own food)! And then, he acts like “What??? Me?? I didn’t do it”!

Hardy is truly one of the heart horses of AAE. He is a deeply soulful old guy that gives something to everyone without even knowing it.

He keeps a watchful eye over all of his equine friends, small and large, and we are grateful to be able to keep a watchful eye over him.

Hardy wishes everyone a happy and hearty holiday season. Happy holidays to you, Hardy, from all your AAE family!

MARLEE

Marlee came to AAE from a small sanctuary in October 2020 during a family distress situation. She was a bit thin, and she had a large summer sore in her right eye. Marlee was a bit timid and anxious. Apparently, she was a kill pen rescue that didn’t work out with her original rescuer.

Her summer sore was treated right away. It’s healed nicely and hasn’t had any residual issues. Her spa days came later. Her hooves were trimmed. Then she got her dental, vaccines, and microchip.

Marlee is a very sweet and pretty mare, and she enjoys grooming and attention. However, she lacks confidence and tends to worry, though since she’s been in a herd environment, her confidence has grown and her worry lessened. When alone, she paces and is constantly on the move. That said, since arrival at AAE, her confidence is slowly growing, and she’s becoming more social.

​Marlee has abnormal stifles, and she is not sound for riding. She is nervous with farrier and hoof handling, in general. The separation issue doesn’t help, but it seems it may be uncomfortable due to her stifle condition, as well.

Marlee is available for adoption and looking for love! She is current with hoof and dental care, vaccines, and deworming. She also has a microchip. She is best suited for a non-riding, companion home.

Marlee has bounced around a lot the last few years. She needs one last soft-landing to call her forever home. Can you be her last stop to call home???

The sweet Miss Mabel!

MABEL

Mabel, a mid-teen donk came to AAE in August 2019 with her two year old (intact) jack, Max, when their caretaker was unable to meet their needs. We shared some of Mabel’s story last year, and we have more updates. Before coming to AAE, Mabel endured enormous, deep sores on her legs, and irritating bites across her body. Their owner moved out of state and left Mabel and Max behind with her elderly mom who was unable to provide Mabel the care she needed to support severe fly sensitivity/allergy. Rather than see Mabel suffer through another summer, she was going to euthanize Mabel. As fate would have it, Mabel had a special friend that advocated for her and asked AAE if we could help.

Who could resist those faces? Mabel is the sweetest donk on earth; well, most of the time. She didn’t used to be. When she was initially seen for veterinary treatment in 2018, she was basically unhandled. In time, she understood her doc was helping her. Through that long healing process, she learned humans were ok. That made it much more practical to change her bandages and treat her legs. Mabel enjoyed her little donk pals, too. They looked up to her.

If you want an idea of what this poor girl went through, you can see Graphic photos of Mabel’s legs during healing at AAE, and photos from 2018 before coming to AAE.

If you noticed the swelling on her right cheek, Mabel also had a supernumerary (extra) tooth that was extracted when her dental was done shortly after arrival.

There was one more thing Mabel came with, but we didn’t learn about him until February 29, 2020. Mabel and Max had lived in separate paddocks a their previous home, but sadly, we were surprised to learn they spent at least a little time together before coming to AAE. Turns out, Mabel was pregnant and aborted an approximately 9 month old lil’ jack. We named him Maddox. Half of her placenta passed sometime in the early morning. When we found Mabel in the morning, she was calm and quiet, stoic as ever, seemingly unphased. It was an extremely difficult situation (baby was breach, and the cord was around his neck and between his two front legs). The vet came to AAE but was unable to remove Maddox’s lifeless lil body, so Mabel was transported to Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center. The docs struggled to remove the lil’ guy, and it wasn’t until their last ditch effort of suspending her hind end, were they finally successful. Though sedated, this was one stoic girl, and we are so happy she survived the ordeal like a champ.

Through all this, Mabel is still an incredibly sweet gal, and she’s grateful to all for helping her heal. She’s recovered well, and her legs have healed in all but one small spot on her left leg. It’s a highly mobile area, and the skin is tight with scar tissue. There’s about a quarter sized spot that is as stubborn as Mabel. On a positive note, Mabel made it through the 2020 fly season with minimal issues; however, she was on a steroid and antihistamines to help with itching from flies. We also used a war chest full of fly products and used hock shields to protect her scarred areas. It all worked quite well.

So, the bestMabel has an extreme sensitivity to flies, and she is high maintenance during fly season. She needs an adopter who can commit 100% to her fly control/fly management two to three times a day. This year, we used hock shields to cover the scarred areas, and they were effective, but they can’t be used long term because they cause rub sores. Mabel is a sweet and friendly donkey who is mostly easy to handle. She’s not crazy about the farrier, but does well with sedation.  Mabel is looking for an experience burro/donkey home. Mabel and Sandy, our other burro, are bonded and get along very well. Ideally, they will find a home together.

The most fun part of the year was when Mabel met Sandy…..or when Sandy met Mabel? Sandy hadn’t been around another donkeyburro for about seven years. The photos say it all. How sweet is that? They have been together ever since.

They’re waiting at the gate for you. Mabel says she really loves it here at AAE, and she loves all of the wonderful volunteers, be she’s really ready for happily ever after! Are you the one to make her holiday wishes come true?

URGENT 911 FOR MORE BABIES – WE NEED TO SAVE THE “CHRISTMAS CREW”. THE CLOCK IS TICKING – CAN WE SAVE THEM?

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

A winter 911 – The shipper called4 ??? (and possibly more) babies at the feed lot. No chance to save the rest of them, so we need to make sure we get these little ones to safety.

Without your love and support, I cannot save their precious little lives.

So please, let’s give these babies a Christmas Miracle. Their lives have been horribly disrupted. They have been rounded up and will now lose their entire families. I DO NOT have the option to save their families, and it makes it even more urgent that we save the ones we can.

This is NOT the time of year to be driving up to WA to get babies. However, God put them in front of me, so once again I am asking y’all to step up and help save these precious lives.

Please help if you can. Our funds are extremely low, and YOU, decide if we can save these babies. The Christmas Crew needs your help ASAP!

Thank you as always for all y’all doTogether we have saved so many lives. Let’s “git ‘er done”.

We have Lady Love’s eye removal, Big Matt’s sedation to get his feet trimmed and the goat’s leg amputation scheduled for next Monday,(If funding allows). We also still need to geld Grandpa and Hawk, (weather and funding allowed). Tucker is also scheduled to have his knee worked on. He has been on major antibiotics, but he is still struggling with his injured leg. I am saying my prayers it is not in his joint, but his leg is not improving like Doc hoped. So not only will we have the vet bills for the new kids, but are looking at a substantial vet bill in NV coming up.

So please, help us give the Christmas Crew a little bit of Merry Christmas…. Let’s save their lives.

ypsy is a mustang mare that was captured as a long-yearling in the Calico Roundup in one of the Calico Mountain HMAs in NV, so she was born around 2008. She was subsequently adopted as a long-yearling/two year old from the Broken Arrow (aka Indian Lakes) holding facility in Fallon, Nevada, then placed at DreamCatcher Wild Horse and Burro Sanctuary. Gypsy spent nearly a decade roaming free at DreamCatcher before coming to AAE in April 2018 after the long illness and passing of DreamCatcher’s Executive Director, Barbara Clarke.

Gypsy came with her young filly, Calico Girl, to avoid the harsh winter at the sanctuary. They were quite the confident pair when they arrived. Gypsy was very laid back and curious about humans, at arms length. She’d accept a rub on her forehead and neck, but she made clear it was on her terms (in a nice way). “Nope, nope, don’t think so”. She was bossy with the other mares and foals, and Cali Girl aspired to be just like mom. Quite boldly, and only weeks old, she would push the other moms and foals off feed. They quickly made their way to their own paddock so the others could eat in peace.

Gypsy is beautiful, stout and lest we forget, dominant, but with a kind soul. After weaning her filly, she softened incredibly and became a most agreeable, sweet, and willing gal. She became best buds with Blue in the pasture.

Later, when opportunity arose, Gypsy spent several weeks at the Monty Roberts International Learning Center as a part of the Advanced Course for Horsemanship where she had extensive groundwork and was introduced to a saddle. She made great progress!

When she returned to AAE, we continued her training and confidence building. She’s a smart mare and quick learner, but she had a very hard time connecting with and trusting her handler. Gypsy was willing, but reserved and seldom relaxed. We knew she had so much potential, and with the right person, she would forge a remarkable bond.

She met that person! Gypsy spent some time with a foster trainer; she broke through and the two developed a lovely bond. There were many moments of whoa, then go, but in the end, it was YES!! We are so incredibly grateful, her foster decided to make Gypsy part of her family! We can’t wait to for updates from these two. So happy for you, Gyps!

Today’s story is about one of the cutest boys ’round here!

Shelton

Shelton is a 16 year old Quarter Horse who came to AAE in June 2020 after his owner had been struggling with financial issues that were exacerbated by COVID-19. Though she’d had him his entire life and loved this big guy, she could no longer support his care. She made the difficult decision to reach out for help. We are not able to help all of the horses we get calls for, but Shelton was a lucky one.

Like our other new intakes, Shelton was quarantined, then his hoof and dental care and vaccines were updated, and he was dewormed. He also got a microchip.

Shelton was a bit pushy when he arrived, but quickly remembered his manners. He’s a sweet, goofy guy. He enjoys grooming and attention, and most of our new, inexperienced volunteers can handle him without issue.

When we began evaluating Shelton with forced exercise and saddle work, a hind end lameness issue became apparent in his hocks, predominantly the right side. It’s an intermittent issue, which we will continue to evaluate. He is also quite sensitive when handling his hind hooves, and he kicked the farrier when he attempted to trim the right hind. Not good! He will be sedated for farrier care for future trims. Because Shelton is still under evaluation, he is not available for adoption at this time. Please check our website or follow us on Facebook for updates on his progress.

Next up is the cutest lil’ dude we’ve had in a long time!

Billy

Billy is a sweet mustang born on the Virginia Range in Nevada around March 1, 2018. This lil dude was orphaned when his mom was run off by a bachelor band when he was just days old. He was fostered by local volunteers before coming to AAE to continue his recovery as an orphan foal. His rescuers suspected he had a hernia and additional veterinary needs were anticipated.

Billy came in with Luna, another orphan mustang. They were like kindergarten boyfriend and girlfriend. They were absolutely adorable together and together all the time, until Luna had to be a big girl and go to her new family. It was a bittersweet day, but she is doing very well.

Billy loved his Grammy Sierra! If he wasn’t spending time with her, he was hanging out with all the other littles in the pasture!

His castration was delayed a bit due to a suspected scrotal hernia as a foal and the need for surgery in the clinic, just in case. Thankfully, surgery went well, and no signs of a hernia were found. This big guy was ready for his forever home. While he waited, he spent some time with a foster family where he got to be a little brother to big mustang Moose and play dress-up with his foster mom (we think he liked it!).

Billy loved entertaining our volunteers. He was a volunteer favorite, and as you can tell, he gave us a lot of memorable moments. Everyone loved getting a chance to spend time with this guy.

This lil’ guy was absolutely adorable when he came in….and he got so handsome as he matured! Billy was very social and inquisitive, calm and easy-going, and he couldn’t get enough grooming and any kind of attention where he could simply hang out. He was playful, yet respectful, and almost a model “citizen” of AAE. He had the perfect amount of sass! Exercise, well, that’s another story. He was a lazy guy that would rather be a couch potato than out racing around the pasture. He could do no wrong.

Billy was adopted in May. He waited a long time to find his forever home, but sometimes good things take time!

ANOTHER 911 FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL BABY! MAMA SHIPPED YESTERDAY! ANNIE OAKLEY NEEDS MILK MONEY, AND FUNDS TO GET HER HOME!

0

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

ANOTHER 911 FOR A NEWLY ORPHANED BABY!

Annie Oakley is approximately 4 weeks old, and yesterday her Mama and band were ripped away from this little baby. Sadly, she was the only survivor, and the rest of her band was loaded onto the slaughter truck. She was pulled, but still needs your help!

Annie is only a month old, so she will need lots of milk money for her Foal Lac Powder and Foal Lac Pellets as she grows. I am working on getting her paid for, vetted and bringing her home. She is the perfect companion for Tucker while his leg heals.

We are still working on our hay fund raiser and the vet bills (which were close to $2,000) from the last 2 groups. We ended up with 29 this last time, and I am so grateful that we have more babies getting adopted. The coffers are low and the calls are not stopping. We also have 2 wild stallions waiting to be gelded, a goat facing a leg amputation, and Lady Love waiting on her eye surgery. The calls never end, so the pleas for your love and support continue as well.

Please help us save her, get all the injured vetted and the boys gelded, and help us navigate this winter and keep on saving lives. Thank you!

Sandy

Sandy is a 10 year old burro that came to AAE in late May 2020 when her owner was experiencing a health issue and could no longer take care of her. After being adopted from the BLM in 2013, Sandy lived with a small livestock herd including a llama and goats. Although she was handled frequently as a youngster, she regressed a bit over the years.

Sandy is a curious, friendly, and beautiful girl, but she definitely has a strong mind of her own. She is learning to soften and be respectful of personal space. She can be haltered and groomed, but she isn’t easy to catch in a large space – she sometimes retreats when she sees a rope. We are working on getting Sandy more comfortable being handled, but she can still be extremely difficult when we are doing something she doesn’t like, such as giving her oral meds or injections. One of Sandy’s go-to moves when being uncooperative is to squeeze you against a wall or rail.

Sandy is good with hoof handling for basic cleaning, but we’ve used sedation for the farrier to be safe. As noted above, Sandy can be very stubborn when pushed too far. She’s strong and knows how to use her weight. Does “bulldozer” sound familiar? That being said, she’ll stand for hours to enjoy grooming and general interaction, and when you want to leave, she’ll follow you as long/far as you’ll let her. She has a very sweet side.

Sandy is very bonded with our other donk, Mabel.

Sandy and Mabel are available for adoption, and they are looking for an experienced burro/donkey home, together. Both are current with dental and hoof care, vaccines and deworming, and they each have a microchip.

Mabel is one of the nicest donks ever….except with hoof trimming (that’s a work in progress). Stay tuned – her story will be coming soon!

Today, Georgia is on my mind!

Georgia

Georgia came to AAE in May 2020 after her family lost their home in a fire, and not long after, their life was further complicated by COVID-19. They were unable to make things work for Georgia.

Prior to coming to AAE, Georgia was placed in a lesson program, thinking that might be a good fit for her. However, working with different riders wasn’t a fit. She really needed her own person to help with her confidence.

Georgia was used as a family riding horse. She really enjoyed her personal time, grooming and any one-on-one attention. Initially, she was impatient with the farrier, but with a little work became more patient and willing. Similarly, initially, she was pushy on the ground and under saddle, but softened as she learned to stay focused. Georgia had very basic knowledge under saddle and needed more education.

Georgia met her perfect person to shower her with attention, build her confidence, and continue her growth.

We always enjoy updates from these two, and all of our alumni for that matter!

Today’s story about is about this macho man!

Twitty

Twitty is the last of the super seven to find his forever home. As a reminder, Twitty came to AAE with six other equine (JakeShayLady RoseSammyConway, and Brantley) after the passing of their elderly owner. Due to the owner’s health conditions and physical limitations, this herd had not received adequate care for quite some time. Twitty was dangerously overweight, but isn’t he one of the cutest minis ever?

First thought, Thelwell pony model, right?

Twitty wasn’t the typical intake. Usually, we work on putting weight on the horses that come in and try to get them back to normal weight. For this guy, it was the opposite. He started a new diet to try to take weight off to get him back to a normal weight. See the theme, though? Feed trough.

He grumbled about his meals all the time, can’t you tell? The measly meals are unfair when the rest of the herd gets a buffet. We reassured him it was just as hard for us to keep his meals small as it was for him (he didn’t buy it, and neither would I). By the way, name…Twitty…he earned.

Slowly the extra lumps and rolls faded away, and this sweet lil’ guy found his family and a little girl of his own.

“Every horse deserves to be loved by a little girl”.

Brantley

Brantley came to AAE with six other equine (JakeShayLady RoseSammyConway, and Twitty) after the passing of their elderly owner. Due to the owner’s health conditions and physical limitations, this herd had not received adequate care for quite some time. Brantley had summer sores in both eyes, and he had not received hoof or dental care for a while.

Shortly after arrival, Brantley’s eyes were treated, his hooves were trimmed, and his teeth were floated. He was vaccinated and dewormed, and he got a microchip. We were told this handsome guy had been used as a trail horse several years prior. We started evaluating him under saddle, but he was cantankerous and irritable. He didn’t seem to have much training.

It wasn’t long before we realized Brantley was battling a hoof abscess, then another, and when they finally resolved, he was much more quiet and willing.

Before long, Brantley found his person!

Brantley was number six of this group of seven to find his forever home.

With the uncertainties and challenges of this year, we truly appreciate your generosity and support.

On the 4th day of December, AAE shared with me, a story of 4 minis

Wynonna

Ashley

Riley

Merle

Ashley, Wynonna, Merle, and Riley came to AAE in February 2020 after their elderly owner was struggling physically to give them the care they needed. They were truly loved, but sometimes love isn’t enough.

ASHLEY & WYNONNA

Shortly after they arrived, Ashley & Wynonna had a horsey spa day: hooves were trimmed, dental float and deworming were done, vaccines were updated, and microchips were placed.

This sweet duo are best friends with opposite personalities. Wynonna is confident and pushy while Ashley is shy and curious.

Ashley & Wynonna were adopted together in June!

RILEY & MERLE

The boys were on a diet of cob, rolled oats, and vegetable oil, along with a little bit of grass hay. They lived in side by side 12’x12′ stalls in a garage. Due to their owner’s mobility issues, they hadn’t been out for a long time.

When Riley arrived at AAE he had many health issues and had not been eating well. This sweet mid-teen gelding had Cushings as well as hoof and dental issues. The bottoms of his hooves were “soggy” and tender from standing in piled up manure in his stall and he suffered from laminitis. Riley’s lower wolf teeth were extremely overgrown and were penetrating his upper jaw.

Riley was a sweet little guy. He enjoyed attention and had a cute and sassy personality. Initially, he seemed to enjoy the freedom of AAE with his buddy Merle. Sadly, he was struggling more than we initially understood. His hooves were trimmed and his teeth were floated. It seemed the laminitis and jaw penetrating teeth were more than enough to cause discomfort, and he couldn’t process food. He slowly lost weight, and blood work indicated he was in kidney and liver failure. Unfortunately, he had a very poor prognosis. We did the kindest thing we could do; we helped him across the Rainbow Bridge. Oh how we wish all rescue stories had happy endings.

 

MERLE

When he arrived at AAE, Merle needed hoof and dental care, surgery to be gelded, and a change in his diet. He was shy and nervous around humans so we waited until he was a little more comfortable before scheduling surgery. He healed without any issues, which was a relief considering his age.

Merle is an older guy with arthritis, including a bone spur in his left shoulder and a hitch in his right hind. He takes daily medication to help. Despite his aging body, this little guy still gets around (albeit slowly) and seems to be happy.

He is still slightly shy around people, but Merle loves to watch the barn activity from a distance and when people visit his paddock for a chat. He is currently living with resident mini Dusty and the two get along well.

Merle is available for adoption. He is up to date with hoof and dental care, vaccines, and deworming, and has a microchip, too. The perfect home for him would be one with another senior mini gelding, no other mini/animals who might chase him or dominate him. He should also have a home where he wouldn’t need to move long distances.

If Merle sounds like a perfect match for you, learn more about our adoption process here.

Day 3: It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

0

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

As we count down to 2021, join us every day this month as we share stories from the barn that show how your support has helped horses in 2020.

With the uncertainties and challenges of this year, we truly appreciate your generosity and support.

Today’s story is about a sweet boy who joined us shortly after the new year.

CODY

Cody is a 1999 Arabian gelding who came to AAE in January 2020 after long-term health issues with his owner and the passing of his caretaker. When Cody arrived, he was very underweight and in need of dental care. He was unable to process hay, so we started him on a pellet diet and refeeding consistent with the University of California Davis’s program for refeeding emaciated horses.

Cody regained weight well and also received dental and hoof care, vaccines, dewormer, and a new microchip. It didn’t take long before he was both looking and feeling better! Cody simply needed food he could process, and enough of it. No doubt, dental work helped, as well.

Cody’s life prior to coming to AAE isn’t quite clear. We were initially told he had been a racehorse in his youth, but due to an injury, he became a pasture pet who was never trained. We were later told he never raced because he wasn’t fast enough for the track. So, we took it slow to see what he knew.

Under saddle, we were pleasantly surprised to find he had more experience than a former race horse that hadn’t been ridden since he injured himself on the track. He was ridden lightly a handful of times in the arena at a walk, trot, and canter, and he was quiet and easy.

Cody is a sweetheart who loves people, grooming, and attention. This boy was ready to go!! It’s not too surprising that within a few months of his arrival, he found his forever person.

Cody was adopted in June as a light riding horse and companion to his mom and two other horses. After his adoption, we learned from family that Cody had substantial training and experience under saddle.

Before and After Photos are always fun…

Take note, if ever you hear a horse is thin/emaciated because it’s old, think Cody. Often they are either not getting food they can process, or they’re not getting enough. Lack of dental maintenance is often a contributing cause, as well. Not always, but often.

Thank you for your support helping horses each and every day!

It’s Giving Tuesday… can you help?

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

As we kick off #GivingTuesday, I have a personal request.

A very generous donor has offered to match all donations up to $50,000 made today, which means your contribution — of any amount — is more important than ever.

Today is our most critical fundraising day of the entire year. We’ll rely on funds raised today to fuel our programs, staff, field equipment, lobbying and legal work into next year when the stakes could not be higher.

What we raise today, determines the strength of our work tomorrow, Meredith. So — for the love of our wild horses and burros — I’m asking personally if you’ll make a gift of any amount right now to ensure your donation has more impact than ever before.

Your donation today will be put to work, immediately — we have no time to lose. 2021 is gearing up to be a pivotal year for our wild horses and burros and we cannot afford to take our foot off the gas for even one day.

When you make a donation to support AWHC, here’s where your money is going in 2021:

  • Education and Advocacy — Often, we’re the only observers onsite at federal wild horse and burro roundups. We’re showing the world what our government is doing to these national icons, and we’re building the grassroots army necessary to finally win the battle for their protection.
  • In The Wild Management — Our humane fertility control program for Nevada’s Virginia Range mustangs continues to break all records as the largest humane wild horse management program in the world. Our team in Nevada is showing that humane management works and is leading the charge to make roundups and slaughter a relic of the past.
  • Legislation — We’re developing increasing numbers of champions from both sides of the aisle in Congress to speak up for wild horses and burros. Thanks to our work, dozens of Senators and Congresspeople have spoken out against cruel surgical sterilization and in favor of humane management, and the House passed a historic amendment to require funding for fertility control as an alternative to cruel and costly roundups.
  • Litigation — AWHC and the coalitions of animal welfare groups we’ve formed have won over 90% of the cases we file. We’ve filed multiple lawsuits and successfully brought about a federal injunction to halt the surgical sterilization of mares in Oregon, and we’re prepared to take legal action again to protect wild mares in Utah from this same cruel plan.

Today represents an incredible opportunity, not only to double your impact, but also to become a member of the AWHC family and the movement we’re building. Together, we will defend America’s wild horses and burros and ensure they remain wild and free. Donate today.

Thank you,

Suzanne

HAPPY THANKSGIVING – A TOTAL OF 29 HORSES FOR THIS CURRENT TRIP!

The following is from Chilly Pepper – Miracle Mustang:

UPDATE ON THE FAB 5 LOL

I am closing this rescue trip with the beautiful LADY LOVE. She is a slaughter intercept, and is blind in one eye. Her eye is a hot mess, and very painful. Doc checked it and said most likely I will have to have it removed when I get home. She already has a potential adopter, and is very sweet.

I was about to head home. Y’all had saved 1814 were adopted, and I had the perfect trailer load home. 2 adults and 6 babies. Suddenly, 2 days later, I have 19 to take home.

This turned into a 29 horse rescue. I need to get home, but am waiting on another trailer and the new paperwork for the latest group.

Thank you to everyone who has donated. I realize that funds are really tight, and I so appreciate any and all donations.

We still have quite a ways to go to finish paying the hay bill, cover the last vet bill which was over $1000+ for the first 18 Coggins, and now we just did another 11 blood draws.

I know God has this and that is why I keep on plugging away, even when it seems like it is just too much, especially being here by myselfI also want to THANK EVERYONE for the love and support. I could not do this without y’all.

More thanks to all the ladies (and Danny Dustin lol) who continue to step up and help find homes and keep me grounded.

I am so thankful for all of it. Please stay safe. help if you can, say a prayer and have a wonderful holiday!

THANK YOU to each and every one of you who has stepped up to donate, share, say a prayer and just send your love and support. You make this work, you save all the lives. So THANK YOU!!

Congress takes fight to BLM

0

The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:

BREAKING: Wild Horse champions in Congress are speaking up and we urgently need you to join them!

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is pushing full steam ahead — for the fifth time — with a cruel, dangerous and invasive plan to surgically sterilize wild horses. They propose using a risky and outdated procedure the National Academy of Sciences called “inadvisable for field application” and veterinarians call “barbaric.”  But here’s the good news: 58 wild horse champions in Congress are fighting back and so can you.

This week, these 58 Congress members, led by Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Representative Dina Titus (D-NV), submitted a bipartisan letter to Interior Secretary David Bernhardt opposing this terrible plan.

Will you speak up as well? Add your name and co-sign the letter to Interior Secretary Bernhardt to let him know Congress AND the public are demanding humane treatment of America’s wild horses and burros.

The surgical sterilization procedure at issue is known as “ovariectomy via colpotomy.” It involves a veterinarian manually reaching into a mare’s abdominal cavity via the vaginal canal, then blindly locating the ovaries, severing them with a rod and chain device known as an ecraseur, and pulling them out. When infrequently performed In domestic mares, the procedure requires extensive pain relief and aftercare that simply cannot be provided to wild, untamed horses.

Because it is so risky, the National Academy of Sciences advised that the procedure is “inadvisable for field application” due to the possibility of bleeding and infection. But the BLM intends to gallop ahead with the inhumane surgery anyway.

With our coalition partners, we’ve filed multiple lawsuits and secured a federal injunction that previously stopped the BLM from surgically sterilizing wild mares in Oregon, and we’re ready to stop this cruelty again.

Join 58 members of Congress in opposing dangerous and inhumane surgical sterilization of wild mares… Co-sign their letter today!

This support from Congress comes on the heels of the historic House amendment to direct $11 million of the BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Program budget to implement humane PZP fertility control as an alternative to traumatic roundups and surgical sterilization. We are building momentum toward real change!

Thank YOU for helping to keep that momentum going!
