Hope 2014 is treating you well. We are working on the end of the year tax stuff and should have your tax donation receipts out in the near future. Of course this is when my computer decided to have problems, but thanks to our good friend Mike it seems to be working again. PTL!
Ikey is finally out of jail. He had his hernia surgery 6 weeks and one day ago, and was required to be stall bound for that time. I can tell you that it was not a picnic for anyone, as he wanted to run and play about two weeks into it. However, he has healed perfectly and is outside playing and running and being a real horse again.
Both Mikey and Ikey are ready to be adopted and travel to their forever home. As heartbreaking as it always is, the heartbreak is bittersweet when you know that these precious babies are going to a place where they can have the attention that they deserve and love. Although it is hard to let them go, I can't give them the attention they deserve when new little ones come in. They are ready to start the next step in their life journey. Mikey is the more quiet of the two, and possibly even a tiny bit timid. He obviously endured some rough handling during the auction, as he has shown uncertainty and fear of being hurt from the get go. Ikey is a bit more outgoing and was gelded when he had his hernia surgery. Both boys are bright, sweet and want to please. They both move very well and would be a wonderful addition to someone's family. Please call 530 474 5197 if you are interested in adoption, or you can email me at Palomino.firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are so grateful for all that y'all do to make our rescue a safe and functional place for these babies. I would really like to get Mikey & Ikey placed as soon as possible as foal season is nearly upon us. The nurseries are empty and ready to go, so if you know of a foal that needs our help, please call sooner than later. Every hour can make a difference in the outcome for these foals.
Thank you again for being part of our rescue and making it such an awesome experience. God bless you for all you do! As always, please enjoy the photos of what you have accomplished.
