    I'm not sure how many of you remember since it's been several months, but my grandma took in an auction rescue horse around October. For those of you who are new or need a refresher, here's a quick summery. A mare who was nearly skin and bones with last years winter coat still clinging to her...

    Things went differently than expected today. My grandma has been somewhat on the hunt for a new horse to put in with her pony to keep him company. We weren't able to find anything decent for a while, but recently, I saw a lady I know post on FB that she was giving away her mare for free to an...

    So over the last few weeks, I've had a few ideas knocking around in my head and I'd like to get some outside opinions. My grandma loves the main/first idea I had but I think that's mostly cause she has a soft spot for horses and is biased when it comes to me xD Hence why outside thoughts and...

    Hello everyone! I am trying to think of name for my miniature horse rescue and I need suggestions. Something cute and catchy, but not cheesy or long. My rescue will be focusing on ex-party ponies, which is a very big problem in my area (I live in West Texas). I have been rescuing horses for...

    We rescued a 2 year old filly in mid April. Mid to late June and into July we gave her SmartMare Harmony Pellets by Smart Pak because she seemed grouchy and uncomfortable. We just gave her the 2 months worth. We just now learned that the poor thing is pregnant!! She is just a baby herself...

    Hi everyone! This is my first post here. I rescued this precious mare from a nearby kill lot and there is no information on her at all. The lot estimated her to be 14-16 years of age. My horse knowledgeable friends and farrier are all over the place on their guesses. Care to take a guess...

She was thin and has put on alot of weight, but now looks like she could be pregnant. She would of been when i got her. She would be at least 6 months or more...

  13. Horse Conformation Critique
    Last night I was informed of a group of standardbred mares going to be processed through a slaughterhouse and couldn't get it off my mind. I knew they had until early tomorrow morning only, and didn't even have time to really go out and look at them. But I went out and had a look, and a very...

    All, Let me start off by saying that I do not think this is anything the rescue is at fault for. I realize this could be more specific to timing on things with me, so bear with me. Two weeks ago I adopted a Saddlebred who was pulled from NH earlier this year. I was told when they went to get...

    When a truck hits a horse the injuries can be fatal. Especially if medical help is not immediate. King Carty is a very lucky young horse. Not only did the Cart Horse Protection Association come to his help and take him to hospital, he was also adopted and now lives with his brand new equine...

    Here's the gelding from Camelot I'm trying to save up for. He was in super rough condition when he first got there, and he's doing better. I hope to have enough for him before he gets sent away :-( Check out his sweet face:
