Spirit Acres Updates

Life on a farm is satisfying and rewarding.  But also challenging and difficult, both physical and emotional.  We promised to keep you updated on our dear Domino, a beautiful Appaloosa stallion and friend of 27 years.  He lost his battle with cancer and with much sorrow we had to say goodbye. 

We have also introduced you to Spirit, very special equine friends.  Spirit was abandoned as a newborn when she came to us.  She has been an inspiration and favorite to many.  We would like to reward her for her love and loyalty by helping to ease her joint pain with injects of much needed lubricants and natural medicines.  This treatment would be for a few months and then would drop to a maintenance dose once a month.  We would like to call on the generous hearts in the GlobaGiving community to help us with this expense.  

Because of GlobalGiving we have been able to accomplish so much and would like to express our sincere appreciation.  We are still hoping to acquire a much needed ambulance trailer to transport horses in need to hospitals and other centers for medical help.  We are a certified tech large animal emergency rescue.  To have a trailer to meet the requirements for specialized equine needs and safety   is our goal.  We have the equine gurneys now, so we are stepping in the right direction.  Please help this dream come true and help us help our horses in need.

Spirit Acres Update

An update on Domino, our Appaloosa stallion, who has cancer on the delicate pink skin on his underside.  Happily he seems to be settling into remission.  Our Vet prescribed a cream that we applied directly to the cancer.   Thanks to our global friends for the support and we will watch over this magnificent one and keep you posted.

One of our long time equine friends, Smokey, lost his battle with poor health and age.  He was a beautiful fellow and we will miss him dearly.

Spirit Acres Farm is a TLAER (Technical Large Animal Emergency Rescue) certified organization.  Feed and initial medical care are the first steps in getting a rescue on the road to recovery.   But so often owners or caregivers do not have transport for the horses in need of medical aid to be transported to a place of safety.  Presently, it is Spirit Acres goal to obtain a 3 horse trailer for this purpose.  Our work is not limited to our rescue and sanctuary.  With a proper ambulance for equine emergency, we can expand to serve many far and wide.   We cannot realize this goal without donations.  Please keep this need in mind when contributing to helping those in need.

Our good friend Domino

To be counted among the many groups and organizations Global Giving sponsors is a real privilege and blessing to us. They reach out to so many in spreading awareness of ways others can help. And because of the generosity of those that respond, Spirit Acres Farm Equine Rescue and Sanctuaryis still able to operate in helping the helpless rescued horses from neglect and abuse. Daily life on the farm is expensive with the purchase of feed, hay, medical supplies and maintenance of equipment. But it is the support from the Global Giving community that has helped us to meet and overcome the challenges of emergency care. Many of the rescued come here with severe dental problems. Chloe, a mare saved from slaughter, with proper care to her hooves, limited exercise, plenty of good hay and balanced feed daily is making a healthy recovery and can soon return to the fields and graze with her friends. The out-of-the-ordinary circumstances come with regularity and is the nature of our business. Thank you Global Giving and supporters for helping us meet this challenge successfully in helping these beautiful horses progress to health and finding new happy forever homes.
