We rescued Bud in June of 2019. He was part of a large neglect case at a dude ranch. He was headed to the El Paso auction to be sold for meat weight to a Mexican slaughter plant. We were able to intercept him before he was sold. He served the dude ranch 16 years. He suffers from GI issues due to years of starvation & requires routine injections for arthritic changes in his pasterns. He is retired & will live out his days here with us.
Mystic was rescued off the same dude ranch as Bud. He was emaciated & extremely sick with pleuropneumonia. Despite all odds, he pulled through. He unfortunately does have some permanent damage to his lungs which makes him susceptible to recurrent episode of pneumonia which we monitor closely. He served the camp 19 years. He is retired & will live out his days here with us.
King is a OTTB out of Kentucky that was dumped at Bowie's Livestock Auction in September 2020. He had raised just weeks prior. He had severely bowed flexor tendons in both front legs. He spent 3 months at Equine Sports Medicine & Rehab Center for treatment before coming home. Following, he had recurrent colic episodes resulting in 2 back to back colic surgeries for displacements. Our vet was able to come up with a complete feed diet w/o hay that he is fed 5x throughout the day - he has now been colic free for over a year. Due to his extensive care & history - he will remain with us & under our current vet who knows him inside & out's care as a sanctuary horse.
Moosette is a draft horse we rescued in August 2021. She was dumped with a severe stifle injury at only 6 years old. We maintain her injury with injections & treatments as needed! To our surprise - she was pregnant when we rescued her. She gave birth to MaxiMoose in June! He was a bit dysmature, but after a few hospitalizations he is now a healthy with no issues! Moosette is the epitome of a mother's love - carrying her pregnancy through starvation & the stresses of the kill lots. Both with remain with us forever.
Stumpy is an ex Amish Haflinger. He was dumped to slaughter completely lame. We rescued him in October 2021. He has a severely necroses stifle. After consulting with radiologists & surgeons there was little studies on his condition & even fewer treatment options. We tried a few injections with no luck. He was overall happy & bright, so we decided to bring him home to give him a few months of love. Incredibly, Stumpy's lameness has improved drastically over time. It seems his bone is healing itself which is amazing. Due to his condition Stumpy is a sanctuary horse. His best friends are Liberty & Fiona <3
