We got some more ponies!

With a lot of patience, negotiations and time we finally were able to get 5 more ponies from the Highway 47 site. The conditions out there are still not good but they are definatley a LOT better then they have been in the past. There are now only 10 ponies left on the site and we are hoping to talk her out of at least 5 of those. All of the remaining ponies have a large pen with shelter and we are continuing to check to make sure that they are all being fed, wormed and cared for.

Here are a couple photos of the new residences enjoying a nice clean stall with plenty of food.


Rudy is a cute, very pathetic little stallion that just steals your heart the instant you meet him. He has the pretiest blue eyes I have ever seen and a sweet personality to go with them. Rudy loves to be brushed and pet, he just enjoys any kind of attention that we give him. He is best freinds with Frosty so we hope that they will go to a new home together.

Rudy was castrated in late April and adopted out along with his best friend Frosty to a wonderful home.

Eclipse - ADOPTED

Eclipse is an aged stallion with the sweetest personality. One of my volunteers fell in love with Eclipse the first time we went out to the site and would not let me rest until I got him out of there. His forlock is so long and thick that you can't see his face unless you move it aside and his mane is incredible. Eclipse is already adopted out but he is going to stay here until he is more healthy.

Frosty - Adopted

Frosy is an older mare, she is extremely shy and acts like she's been abused at some point in her life. We are afraid she might be pregnant. Frosty was brutally savaged by a stallion right before we got her so she is reluctant to be with other horses but she gets along really well with Rudy.

I have been spending a lot of one on one time with Frosty in an attempt to get her over her shyness. She is more comfortable with being handled and is easier to catch now but she is still a little fearful. I think with more time and patience she will come around quite nicely.


Ice is an aproximately 10 year old stallion that was used as a herd sire. He is a sweet, friendly little guy who really cries out for some attention. He appreciates any and all loving he is offered. I really like this little horse and think that with some time and patience would be a nice childs pony. He is going to need to have his teeth done and be castrated.

I am not afraid of death and I am not selfish therefor no animal shall suffer at the hands of my weaknesses.
