Safer went to the Escalon Auction June 3rd and got 5 of the 7 horses. Pretty much just Don Gates (Gatz) and myself bidding. Melissa Wessel picked up 4 and took them home to our quarantine facilities at Jinifir Price's in Santa Rosa. Two I found out were bucking horse rejects - gorgeous though. Because of Melissa's contribution and effort I was able to go down to Cowtown in Turlock the following night.

There, in the 101 heat - with no AC in the SAFER truck - (just had to say...) we got 8 of the 20 horses there. There were more bidders at Cowtown. A private rescuer got 3 of the worst off ones, to my relief. AND she bid high for a gorgeous horse that was one of the ones Gates had outbid me for the night before - to my delight!

The following evening Jinifir Price - a local hero of great dedication - came with an 8 horse trailer and packed them all in!! Four hours each way she donated her time!! She is an expert horseloader - even in difficult situations! I was in my 3 horse. I packed the mini (yes we got one) in the tack room - refurbished for that purpose - and went back up to Escalon to run into the trailer the last bucking horse we had left behind. Got home at midnight Sunday night - with Jinifer waiting at the gate with a light. What a gal....

We had to put one down ASAP once in Santa Rosa - so very sad. Dr. Wood explained her hocks were completely beyond repair and she was suffering greatly.

Please see us on FaceBook or in the Horses Available section for adoptable horses!!
