Thank you for helping our horses

Thank you for supporting our on-going efforts to keep the bellies of 106 horses full! The final quarter of 2020 brought an overall drop in donations, compared to that same quarter in 2019. As a result, your gifts mean more than they ever have before.

Your gifts allowed us to offer a furever home to two horses from a local rescue-therapy center. This rescue-therapy center made the difficult decision to downsize following the loss of corporate clients due to COVID. The group did a great job finding adoptive homes for most of their horses, but they had two that were not suitable for general adoption due to medical issues. We suspect that Gracie, a Clydesdale, has Chronic progressive lymphedema (CPL), a progressive, debilitating disease common in draft horses. While Gracie's case is currently mild it will require on-going care to keep her disease managed and her comfortable. She arrived in our care in mid-October.

On Nov 22, the second horse from the rescue-therapy center arrived at the ranch. Valentine is a twelve-year-old American Quarter Horse/Mountain Pleasure Horse cross. Valentine had arrived at the rescue/therapy center over four years ago in very bad shape and extremely fearful. She was given great care and is now doing much better. She is still slow to trust new people but puts effort into making the right choices. Valentine has Carpus Varus (outward deviation from the knee) in her right front leg. While it does not currently cause her discomfort, the rescue recognized that she shouldn't be ridden in order to preserve her quality of life for as long as possible.

Thank you for your support of the horses in our care. Thanks for your support, we were able to welcome two more horses in need to the ranch. COVID has definitely taken a toll on equine welfare organizations, as it has with so many non-profits. Thanks to your support, these two beautiful mares, Gracie and Valentine, have found a furever home, in spite of the uncertainty and anxiety that the pandemic is causing. Thank you!
