Activity Log Horse Rescue 2021
 

  • Wilt” 11/2/21 we took in an older black gelding from Shane 307-690-6992. We named him “Wilt the Stilt” after Wilt Chamberlain, the basketball player who was tall and black and thin, just like this horse. He is thin and old. Needs grain daily. Probably needs teeth worked on and worming.

  • 11/1/21 drove 130 miles round trip to get 40 bags of grain from Farmer’s Feed Store in Thayne. They have the rolled barley that we like so much and it is quite a bit cheaper. Also, Deb Cox will take care of five horses this winter and most of the five need to be grained every day.

  • 9/28/21 Linda and I drove to Pinedale and picked up whiskey (Palomino geld) and roller. Whiskey has really bad front teeth don’t know what the inside of his mouth looks like. Roller looks in pretty good shape but he has some tendon -itis.

  • 9/16/21 agreed to take in two horses from Cora Wyoming, Roller and Whiskey. We will put Whiskey down for the lady because he’s just too old. Rollo limps from tendon injury. “Should get better.” We will keep Roller through the winter and next spring if she wants Roller back plus one of our pasture pets she will take him back. This is Sally Adler and her husband Larry and they will donate $1000 to Jackson Hole horse rescue through old bills. Listed in phone as HR Sally Larry donate Roller.

  • 9/13/21 we will take Reno from Jenny Lake Lodge. 26 year old gentle horse. Retiring him.

  • 8-4-21 Dolly a 26 year old Forest Service mare came to the JHHR under weight from Winter pasture. We provide supplemental feed plus she is in the pasture with access to feed 24x7. 9/13/21 we will take Reno from Jenny Lake Lodge. 26 year old gentle horse.

We renamed Whiskey to Bourbon because we already have a horse named Whiskey.

  • 5/1/21 drove to Crowheart and got 4 horses from Warren Fleming’s winter pasture;

    Sampson, Huckleberry, Trixie, Weldun. Had neighbors come help unload them. Had a minor accident; I was loading the horses in the trailer and Weldun turned around and tried to run over me. I had to jump out of the trailer. Fortunately I survived the jump; no knee damage.​​
