New Horses: News + Needs
SAFER was at the auction on the 18th and rescued a lovely 8 year old TB. She was so terrified she looked crazy. She was vibrating with fear. Probably why only me and the meat man were bidding. We found out she is a trained riding horse that was abandoned at a boarding stable. She has not been worked with for about a year but showed great willingness when asked to lunge and back up etc. She is thin and we will be evaluating her riding in a couple of weeks. She handles well. She is sound and a beautiful mover. She did a Happy Dance when she settled in at her new foster home. Thank you to Jennifer and Jamil Hope for offering her foster refuge! More info and pics are coming.
No horses on the 25th at the auction.
SAFER is taking in an off the track Thoroughbred mare - only 3 years old, with chips in both knees. A small and calm girl - only 15 hands. We need a foster home with a stall she can live in for the next 6 months. Can you help? The track vet said her only chance for a good recovery is to be fairly immobile for that time. SAFER pays for all food, farrier and vet. Call 824-9543.

One Truck that Runs.
Someone to teach me to take videos and post them.
Experienced Riders to evaluate horses occasionally.
Folks that will do Fund Raising so we can implement more programs for the community - like Train One - Retain One! (Or something like that.)
We need to train the youngsters that are being abandoned by their breeders. We will want these trained horses in a few years and now is the time to prevent their needless deaths. Good things can HAPPEN! Be a part of it!
