Mustang Sally

Mustang Sally bares the original BLM freeze mark that identifies her as part of the legacy of the old west.  Poor Sally fell in an accident while the farrier was trimming her hooves. When she fell her neck was punctured on the farrier’s stand.  Aside from the damage to her neck and neck muscles, the fall fractured her 6th vertebrae. The fast action on everyone’s part was a big step to saving her life and her steady recovery can be attributed to her determination and the special care she is getting from those who love this special horse. Check out her story and see her pictures and progress on face book. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Spirit-Acres-Farm-Equine-Rescue-and-Sanctuary/296418097416. Sally’s recovery for these 4 weeks is not without extra cost.  In addition to Veterinarian visits and supplies to keep the wound clean and free of flies, her treatment includes electrolytes, probiotics, pain meds and antibiotics. Our medical needs here at the farm average about $500 a month. Please help us keep Sally and others here with special medical needs stay healthy.

Spirit Acres Update

Here at Spirit Acres Farm there is an abundance of love and devotion to our beautiful horses.  Unfortunately
we are experiencing a scarcity of funds to cover the cost of medicine and supplies used to treat and heal horses with problems, some chronic, and help them regain their strength and health. This expense is about $550 monthly. 
Meeting this need is possible with your help.  How grateful we are to be in the GlobalGiving network where this message can reach those who have a genuine interest in coming to the aid of these horses in need. They, in turn, are there for our community and act as healers themselves for so many.

Oldies But Goodies

Here are pictures of some of our dear equine residents at Spirit Acres Farm that are getting up in age.  Like us, age comes with age related health issues.  Pocahontas, a mini horse, will be 35 years old this year.  Along with caring for her aging joints and hooves, she needs medicine to manage Cushing’s disease. Equine Cushing’s disease is one of the most common diseases of horses greater than 15 years of age. One of the symptoms in horses with Cushing's disease can be easily recognized by their coarse, wavy coat that often fails to shed out in the summer.  In the photo, her friend Laura helps her out with a personal grooming session. 

 Black Jack is a retired rodeo horse. He was quite a showman in his day. None of his riders managed to stay on for their 7 second ride.

Our herd of 7 mini’s represents 3 generations.  They are a true family in activity and life.

 All of our horses, regardless of age, need regular dental care.  This is a real challenge to provide proper care for some 40 horses at $150 each. We thank all who share our love and concern and support our work.
