We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that offers a safe home for equines, particularly mustangs, as our funding permits. Our largest expenses are training and feed. Mustangs need to be gentled, then taught good groundwork skills to be safe for daily handling, and then taught to carry a rider safely. We are also caring for a tow year old who is too young to ride and an older burro with laminitis.
This is a small non-profit that takes in unadoptable or hard to place equines and provides care including training and medical care. The organization started with a single unwanted burro who had fears of people. Shortly afterward, two "three striker" wild horses off the range were acquired from the Bureau of Land Management. Late last year, a yearling that had been seized by local law enforcement was acquired. This year, a neglected burro with founder was acquired. We have provided gentling and groundwork training for all but our newcomer who has medical issues to be resolved first.
Red Cloud is a handsome five year old sorrel gelding, about 15 hands. He has good basic ground skills although he still cautious around new people. He has displayed aggression as a result of fear during training. He is not yet rideable.
Traveler is a handsome bay about 14 hands high. He has Spainish mustang bloodlines and good collection. He learns quickly and seems to enjoy interacting with handlers and learning new things. He requires a skilled rider.
Rosie is a darling jenny about 10 - 12 years old and about 11 hands high. She has a calming influence on the horses and clearly enjoys their company.
Smooth is a two year old paint. He was seized by local authorities from a neglectful situation. He is only two years old and too young to ride..He is fostered for Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society.
Carlita is a 15+ year old burro. She has founder and has trouble walking very far. Her hooves had grown upward and curled so she was in constant pain and had difficulty walking. She had been abandoned and little is known of her history, Now, her health is improving. While she still has a limp, she gets around quite a bit. However, her hoof growth is being monitored and she is still under medical review for founder.
Our wish list includes a used horse trailer; expanded run in sheds; and an upgrade to the floor of the barn as it fills up with water with excess rain. In addition, we need summer blankets, another halter and monthly requirements for feed and for hay when the dry hot Texas summer arrives.
Please donate to our organization to help these equines and to help more in the future.
