Oh Summer, how we love you!!
How is it already July 25th??! Time is flying by this summer! So many things to update. An update on our Program Horses to start...
First we have our old boy CeeCee who was relinquished to us emaciated and depressed. His owners had given up on him, but he has recovered beautifully and is ready for his new home. He will need an adopter that can appreciate an old soul. He is mechanically sound, super sweet and friendly, and just a wonderful boy. He seems to love younger horses and appreciates company. At 15.2+hh he is a tall drink of water. He will be added to our available horse page soon!
Second we have our Goose. What a sweet, gentle, kind and funny gentleman he is! Goose came to us as a kill buyer intercept. His owners had given up on him due to him not holding up for their riding style (gaming). We have found however, that he loves to trail ride. He also is sound for arena work as long as it isn't the pounding that gaming requires. He will also be added to our available horse page soon! Both of these gentlemen are registered AQHA and we have their papers in hand.
Third we have Rizza. She is coming back to us as the therapeudic riding facility made some changes to their program and because Rizza isn't sound at the trot, she no longer fits their requirements. Rizza will be posted back on our adoptable page soon as well, please watch for her!
Fourth is Miss Kitty, pictured above. A law enforcement assisted surrender, Miss Kitty was tied to a stump in the middle of a field. No water, no food, no shade and it was over 100 degrees, covered in winter hair, sores down her back, emaciated, depressed, and suffering from severe diarrhea. Our amazing team was on site and had her loaded within 2 hours of the phone call from law enforcement asking for our help, a vet examination by Dr. Menks within an hour of her arrival into our care. Miss Kitty is slowly but surely recovering from her neglect and mistreatment, and we are assisting law enforcement with prosecution.
Fifth, Holly was adopted! Her sweet personality, gentle soul, and laid back attitude have allowed Jim to enjoy trail riding again after many years of sitting on the sidelines. Congratulations Holly and Jim!!
Now for some really big stuff guys, we have a desperate need for volunteers. We have 3 active volunteers who are trying to do it all and that is with full time jobs, families and herds of our own to take care of. The focus of our organization is outreach, but without additional boots on the ground, there just isn't enough time or energy to get it all done. We would like to have additional members who can take the reins and seek funding sources (grants), fundraising activities, public interaction, website updates, and to help with all that our communities need, and DESERVE, working side by side with us to make a difference.
Please contact us at 509.222.8994 if interested in speaking with us on how you can help and please keep the support coming, financial or otherwise. We can't do what we do without you!!
