Horses Undergoing Rehabilitation
The horses listed are currently in quarantine or the rehabilitation process. We treat each horse independently based on their needs. Some horses need to put weight on, others need desensitization training, and some have substantial health concerns, but no matter what, our primary goal is to get these horses prepared to be adopted into their forever homes.
Doc came to us July 30th with a severe case of stringhalt. Poor Doc was unable to step down properly on his hind hooves, resulting in him coming down on the front of his rear fetlocks. It was really horrible. Doc sustained significant injuries to his back fetlocks. Despite his physical condition, Doc remained in good spirits. He has always been a gentleman to handle and work around. He was on stall rest for 3 months, in which now he can be hand walked and exercised daily. It is still not pretty to watch, however, Doc has made tremendous progress. We remain hopeful that he will be able to recover to a point where he can enjoy daily turnout with another mellow horse. Doc has proven to us that he has a fighting spirit.
Given Doc's incredible personality and ease of handling, we would like to make Doc a permanent Ambassador horse. In this position, he will be an educator. He will teach volunteers how to groom, bath, and handle horses safely. He will remain in our care for his remaining years. To keep and care for Doc permanently, we need a sponsor for Doc. Please consider becoming Doc's sponsor today.
Khalila is a beautiful 7 year old Arabian Morgan Cross Mare. We just confirmed that Khalila is in foal. We know that she is at least 4 months pregnant, which is how long she has been with us. Khalila will receive groundwork, desensitizing, and will lightly be ridden until the later months of her pregnancy. Gestation period for horses is 11-12 months. Therefore, we are in need of a sponsorship for Khalila and her unborn foal. Currently, the cost to feed her is $150 a month. During the later months and after the foal is born, that cost will increase to $250 a month due to more hay intake and specialized grain for nursing mares. Please consider sponsoring Khalila during her pregnancy and up until the foal is weaned.
Ahna Registered Name: Shakesphears Ahna
Ahna is a 6 year old 15.1 hh chestnut sabino mare. She has passed through multiple hands in her short life. Beautiful, lovely bred, she came to us very anxious, insecure, and a fence pacer, who due to this was about 125 pounds underweight. Ahna will need time to decompress, learn to trust, and then slowly begin groundwork and training to develop confidence and a willing partner. Ahna is highly intelligent. Once she feels safe, she will progress nicely. Due to her being passed through 6 different hands in 6 short years, we will need to give her plenty of time to settle and fell secure. This will take time, and money, then there is the training cost, once she is ready. Please consider sponsoring Ahna. It cost us $200 a month to feed her to try and get weight on her. That cost will go down once she settles, is no longer pacing the fence line and has put on weight. Sponsorships can be of any amount. Multiple smaller sponsorships are happily accepted and greatly appreciated, just as one large sponsorship. In order to provide for his care during this time, we are in need of a sponsor or multiple sponsors for Ahna. Please consider becoming Ahna's sponsor today.
