Horses that have been Rescued or Adopted
Since our inception in 2008 we have rescued more than 200 horses. Some were truly tragic cases while some just found themselves without a home, temporarily. Some have been incredible success stories.
Trey was rescued as a wild two-year-old. She was part of our string for a few years, then her feet went bad. Margareth took her in and is giving her lots of TLC.
Sweetie was a scrawny half-starved yearling. Both the veterinarian and the brand inspector recommended she be put down. We took that as a challenge.
Sweetie two years later. She found a forever home.
Lulu was an old sick starving mule with an abscessed tooth. A lot of TLC turned her in to quite a pet. She found a forever home with Scott and Jane Maller. They take care of our horses in the winter, on their ranch. They fell in love with her. At right, Jonesy's grandson Brannen hugs on Lulu. Lulu finally died at age 37.
Chase was the best $50 horse we ever bought. He had a badly cut foot and his owner was going to send him to slaughter where they make dog food out of horses. It took his foot a year and a half to heal but then we used him for several years until his knee went bad. Kathi adopted him as a pasture companion to Skipper, whom Kathi got from us a few years earlier.
The following were adopted by Nicole and Tim and their children Cody and Naomi, who live near Red Lodge, Montana. What a generous family to take in these horses, as each of them had problems.
"Purple", bad knee
Stringbean. Very old.
Peg, bad knee
Poor Cuatro he has really bad feet. The shoer put shoes on backwards to help take the pressure off his toe. Volunteer Deb helping out.
12 year old volunteer, Izzy, gentled and adopted Patience. A real labor of love with this wild filly.
Volunteer Deb gentled and adopted Gypsy, a wild three-year-old at the time. They LOVE each other so much! Deb is now on our Board of Directors. Deb resides in Idaho with Gypsy and Lilly.
Bob, Copper and Cuatro
Robert with Copper and Cuatro.
Dawn was adopted into a wonderful Jackson family. She was an older mare who was friendly and broke to ride.
Chiclet is a beautiful brown and white paint mare. We have had a saddle on her but she didn't like it much. Didn't buck, but was definitely nervous. She has a deformed right rear hoof, but she gets around just fine and gallops across the pasture. She just steps a bit short on that stride. Not gentled to ride.
Daegyn is a beautiful Morgan gelding. Dark Brown. He is rideable but has a limp. He currently has corrective shoeing and we are hopeful this will correct his limp. He is a very gentle & loving horse.
Nova (right)was adopted.
