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 !

This is a Rocky Mountain gaited horse. Aged around 18. He gaits decently but his feet are angled straight up in his heals. He tries so hard and loves to play in water. He rode with no issues in the pen with other horses. Rider also laid all over this guy we have named Deano.

His bail was set at $675

Rescued July 25th 2020

Welcome Indy. From a kill pen in Ohio. She is 11 to 12 years old. Sweet as can be. Indy is in pretty bad shape as you can see. Stacy Cain and family brought her to Rockys since Sharon and Danny were indisposed. Thank you for dropping everything so late in the evening to bring her home.


Update 9/5/2020: 

Doc was out to check on Indys progress. We were very concerned that her outcome looked bleak until Sharon did the pictures of her spine. Didn’t realize how much weight this mare has actually put on in 45 days.
At this time her knee is still swollen. So a long time for healing there. X-rays were done and her knee is clean. So a tendon issue probably from a kick when she was out with some of the others. On top of that she does have minor stringhalt and appears to be abscessing on her left front.

Update 9/15/2020: Indy has been fitted with boots while her hooves grow. She just showed us a little bit of trot which is a huge improvement ! She is still on a weight gain program but feeling so much better.

Just rescued. 3 PMU horses. Owner could not take care off them .  Low body scores. In need of weight and basic health care. 2 stallions and a mare (sorrel). The stallions will be gelded very soon.  All 5 years old and tightly bonded. In your hand friendly. Currently on a strict weight gain plan. Transported like old pros. Being segregated in an area away from other horses. This was an emergency rescue so we were not  fully prepared. Their pen needs new millings desperately. Please consider any donation towards their care. 

Bucksin is named Traveler.  Mare is Annie. Paint is Beau.


Update 4/13/2020:  Traveler and Beau were gelded . Next comes farrier and dentist.


Update 5/6/2020: Annie and Traveler have gone to their foster homes to enjoy some time gaining weight and healing. Beau is still looking for a foster home.


Update 5/10/2020: Beau has now gone to a foster home as well.


Update  5/30/2020   Traveler has been transferred to GAIT rescue. A rescue to rescue transfer.
