Welcome! This is my first Blog attempt! So hang with me :)
Goldie, the horse in the photo was one of our first horses to come into the rescue! Beautiful registered palomino.
She had been a brood mare most of her life. The one day the owner decided to change their breeding program. She had club foot, so they didn't think anyone would want her.
She was an amazing horse! We didn't know if she had ever been broke to ride.
The owners where just going to put her down. I got a call from a friend, concerned about her future.
So we contacted the owner and asked her if we could bring her to the rescue and find her a Forever Home.
The owner agreed.
We were able to find her a home with a friend of mine, who adopted 2 horses. They went to South Dakota to live.
Both horses did really well. They even started riding Goldie. He also adopted Koda, our first rescue horse.
What a blessing! They both are doing well and getting lots of riding and attention.
Thank you, Kevin Klein for adopting our first 2 rescues!
Stay tuned for more rescue stories and up coming events.
April 26, 2018 is Help a Horse day! We will be having an open barn that day. There will be lots of things to do with the animals, drawings, items for sale, 50/50 drawing. Kids pics. with our Little Bear the Therapy Mini Horse.
We are also converting our old Corn Crib into a barn! It will have 5 stall, a small animal/baby room, hay storage, grain room and Tool Room! I am super excited about this! Donations are needed to help us complete it. We have had siding donated, we are buying reclaimed lumber to save money. We will need more Lumber, flooring, Clay, sand, gravel, horse stall fronts, Bedding, pretty much anything stall related.
Most of all we need volunteers to help Rodney build it! He is doing a great job, but it will go a lot faster with extra hands! Evenings or weekends. Bring friends or a group. We also need Volunteers, for Grooming, training, riding, Veterans are Welcome!
Please contact me for more information. Let me know how you would like to help!
We are a non-profit 501c3!
Hope to see you soon!
