Another emergency rescue Sunday July 26th. We received a call about 2 mares with colts at their sides at the kill pen. Both mares are 8 years old. They were hauled up from Tennessee last night and are exhausted. The larger black mare is a Tennessee Walker and the other is a Quarter horse. The quarter horse mare appears ridden and trained. She knew stopping and spinning maneuvers. The TWH mare was ridden at the auction in Tennessee. Neither colt appears to have been handled. The colt by the Quarter horse has a hernia which most likely will require surgery soon. Stacey Cain and family prepped the stalls while Sharon and Danny went to get the foursome. Thank you so much for your help. All donations of any amount  are graciously accepted. Donation link is below.

Names: The quarter horse mare is River and her colt is Burt.   The TWH mare is Whisper and her colt is Bandit.

Update : Shipping fever presented in River and Burt. First type of meds did not take care of it so on to second antibiotic. Quarantine being strictly enforced for all 4. 

Update 8/19/20:  River and Burt were swabbed and diagnosed with Equine Influenza. Both are now doing well. Dentals done on the mares. River had a wolf tooth removed. 

Update: 9/5/20: Burt and Bandit have been weaned and are in foster care with the Baker family where they will receive a lot of handling and attention !

 What is Rocky's Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation ?

Rocky's Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation is a 501c3 non-profit horse rescue ( EIN# 46-5656223) located in Rocky Ridge, Maryland. It is run and cared for with a 100% volunteer staff.  We rescue equines from all over the United States to give horses, donkeys, and mules a soft place to land after being abused, neglected, or thrown away at an auction to the highest bidder. We also assist in helping horse owners find a new home for their horse if we are unable to take them in to the rescue.

Our goal as a rescue is to rescue , evaluate , rehabilitate , and find them forever homes.  This process can be easy or difficult depending on the needs of the animal rescued. Many of our equines are adopted out to live their lives happy in their forever home. However, some of the equines we rescue can't be homed and these equines will live out their lives at our Sanctuary.  Most of our horses, donkeys, and mules can be found on the "Our Horses" tab above.
