Two New Horses and a Burro Join Our Herd -- Thanks to YOU!

Earlier this summer the owner of two senior horses and a senior burro passed away, leaving no one to care for these equines. They were rescued by County of San Diego Department of Animal Services. Given their advanced ages, close bond and medical conditions, Animal Services asked us to provide them with a forever home.

The mare, in her 20’s, has a number of melanomas. These are common in grey horses. Our veterinarian also suspects she has an allergy to fly bites. We are addressing this with topical medication and a fly sheet.

The gelding, thought to be at least thirty is visually impaired. Our veterinarian believes he has lost most, if not all of the vision in his right eye. He has likely lost at least a portion of the vision in his left eye. This vision loss has greatly enhanced the bond between these two. The gelding appears dependent on the mare for comfort and confidence. Unfortunately, they require dramatically different diets so we have to keep them separated. The gelding’s teeth are worn out. He can no longer chew hay enough to derive nutrition from it, so he is on a soaked pellet diet. We hope that we will soon see him gaining weight.

The burro is thought to be about twenty-nine years old. He is settling into life with our senior burro group.

During this time of unprecedented feed costs, we were only able to offer these two senior horses and burro a forever because of your on-going, generous support. We are grateful to each of you for supporting our efforts to provide life-long care for senior equines rescued by Animal Services.
