Atlas aka jade's autumn sky
We are so happy that Atlas got adopted and has made his way to our neighboring state of Alabama. He will reside at another rescue where his owner will be boarding him and volunteering at the rescue. He was adopted just shy of his one year rescue anniversary with us!
Titan's life may have started off rough but he is living it up with his brother and Domino at their new home. The more shy of the two, it was amazing to watch him grow and come out of his shell. He and Remi are going to do great things when they get older.
Remi got adopted with his brother Titan and Domino (not pictured). It is rare we are able to adopt bonded pairs out together but this pair can grow up, train, and trail ride together when they are older. It was such a pleasure watching them grow big and strong.
Maverick went to an amazing home with someone who travels and guides trail rides in another state during certain times of the year. He is still a picky eater, but he is a big beautiful boy that we are so proud of!
Rayne came in with Stella. Both were emaciated and in bad condition. They were closely bonded, but so reliant on each other we struggled to get them to come in to eat. We made the difficult choice to separate them and Rayne went to live with a beautiful gelding who was very lonely after the loss of his companion.
Jericho came to us as a 19 year old stallion, and was extremely emaciated. He blossomed and grew into a fantastic and sweet horse. He could be ridden, but was frequently passed over because of his age. We knew if someone just came to meet him they would take him home. A young lady came to meet him and fell in love. He ended up being her surprise gift for her birthday. Their family also adopted Trax's little brother Blaze a few years ago.
Trax was with us for 3 years before he found his perfect home. He could not be ridden due to some deformities to his front legs that should have been corrected when he was a foal and was compounded by malnutrition. We had to be very selective in finding him a new home to ensure he would never be ridden. His new job is to be a companion horse and they spend their days playing and exploring.
Ox aka makin rain
Ox has been adopted by two of our board members. He has a very....selective personality about who and what he likes, and can be cranky with those he does not. We decided that it was simply not safe to adopt him out given his attitude and quirks. This situation grants him the best of both worlds. He is happy and safe, without putting anyone at risk.
Pedro has come so far since he was adopted. Under local trainer Jimmy White, he is blossoming into a confident, well behaved horse for his girls. We can't wait to see what he does in the future.
Phoenix is the son of Fiona and Moose. He has been lucky to grow up with no fear of neglect or abuse and is thriving and learning to be a gentleman with his new family.
Major Bingo. Our hardest case to date. His spirit was broken, his will to live gone. We had to lift him with a tractor every couple of days, sometimes every day, for over a month. We fought so hard to make him live. And live he did. Many of these photos are hard to look at. He was adopted by an amazing family with a fierce little lady who loves him dearly. His new name is Jackpot, because his family feels like they hit the jackpot in finding him. We think it is the other way around!
Scout, sire to Trax, Blaze, and Bones. This beautiful boy waited almost an entire year to find his person. We never understood why, just look at him! He deserves nothing but happiness for the rest of his days.
The middle brother of Bones and Trax, his mother is Leslie. He was in better condition than little Bones, but not by much. He was the most rambunctious of the bunch, not tying well, cutting a somersault when given shots...But with time, love, and patience he was ready to learn and became the easiest colt we have worked with to date. He now has a new home and a little girl to call his own.
Bones is the son of Dixie. He was extremely emaciated and dehydrated, and we weren’t sure he was going to make it. Once he began to get consistent nutrition, he began to grow! He is a little over a year old in these pictures but was the size of a 6 month old colt, if that. He now resides in Alabama with his new family.
Moose and Fiona were seized on February 28, 2018. They were taken from a property where we were too late to save their pasturemate. A 5 year old stud, he really came into his own when he began to feel better. If you look at his face in the pictures, you can see him grow from a boy to a man. Gelding settled him a good bit, but he still has the energy and spark of a young sassy boy. After he was rehabilitated he spent time with local trainer Jimmy White before he was adopted.
Fiona came in with Moose. Phoenix her foal, was born a few months after her rescue. She has some issues with her hips and cannot be ridden. She has not been adopted, but she is living a life of luxury.
leslie & dixiE
Leslie and Dixie came fron the same seizure case in July of 2018. Leslie was later adopted by her fosters. Dixie took longer to gain weight and struggled to find a home. Leslie’s family decided to come ride Dixie and give her a shot. As you can see in the final pictures in the slideshow, these girls are living their happily ever after together!
Beauregard came to us as a shelter transfer. Heartworm positive, recent tail amputation because of happy tail, and extremely emaciated. Due to being hungry for so long, he thought he was always hungry. He would eat himself sick, and keep on going if allowed. After he was rehabilitated, he caught a ride to California where he had a loving family and home. He passed away in his sleep, knowing love and comfort.
Klementine was kept at a foreclosed property. She was "old," and that was the excuse given for her condition. Age is a factor, but never an excuse for an animal to look like this. She, like other senior animals, needed some extra calories and care. She is now the companion to another senior horse with round the clock care at the same farm as Nakoma.
When Crixus came to us we weren't sure he would survive. He had been attacked by his kennelmates, and had hidden in the doghouse where his injuries were not immediately seen. When he was found, infection had set in, so badly you couldn't help but gag to be near him. We thought he might lose his leg and his tail. It took a while, but he healed completely. He went to California to a partnering rescue there and was adopted.
If you have been to our About page, you know Legend was one of the first horses we took in, and one of the worst we have seen. He came from a bad part of town, inside the city limits. He lived the best life we could have asked for with his owner. Legend was sadly lost to a severe bout of colic in 2020. We will always remember what Legend taught us, and all those who have been saved since in his honor.
