Two More Together Forever!
The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:
‘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.
We want to thank everyone for their love and support!
We hope you enjoy these stories as much as we do!
Have a great holiday season!
It’s AAE story-time! Horses of 2018:
Quinn and Blaze
Quinn & Blaze came to AAE when their family was preparing to downsize. Fortunately, Quinn and Blaze’s family were planning ahead, and when space became available, AAE was able to help, which is often not the case. Quinn and Blaze were in good condition when they arrived.
Quinn was a very fancy 23-year-old half Arab (registered) and half Saddlebred mare. She had a mild injury to her front right leg but, was lightly ridable in the past. Quinn was a sweet ol’ girl that tended to be higher energy and a bit impatient. She was trained English and Western in the distant past, and she spent time in the arena and on trails. However, she had not been ridden for about 5 years. Back in the day, Quinn was forward on trail and loved to go! Quinn was a bit more complicated and needed an experienced person.
Not long after arrival, Quinn’s teeth were floated and hooves were trimmed. She was dewormed and vaccines were updated. She was also evaluated by our vet and okayed for light riding. Quinn was on the lean side and not gaining weight, and she had some hock sores that were not healing. Subsequent blood work showed she was positive for Cushing’s, and she was started on daily medication.
Blaze was a very handsome 21-ish year old (~1996) Arabian gelding. Blaze had no formal training, but he was used as an occasional trail horse. He hadn’t been ridden for about 5 years. Shortly before coming to AAE, he suffered a mild bout of laminitis.
Not long after arrival, Blaze’s teeth were also floated, and hooves were trimmed. He was dewormed, and vaccines were updated. Blaze’s hooves had much improved, and he was doing very well.
Quinn and Blaze had been together for several years, and they were bonded seniors. Fortunately, the stars aligned, and they were adopted together into their forever home. Their adopters are a horse experienced home with two young children. They were looking forward to the companionship of horses again and what a perfect opportunity for these two!
Quinn and Blaze’s adoption took them to Paradise, CA. In November, the Camp Fire devastated the town of Paradise. Most homes were destroyed and the community has been displaced. Through the darkness, there is light. We are relieved and happy to report Quinn, Blaze, and their family are safe!
Our hearts goes out to everyone that was impacted.
