Can you imagine a life like this? Imagine these poor beautiful beasts being kept in a near-constant state of pregnancy, each foal being taken away immediately, only to be inseminated again and again. Hooked up for urine collection day after day after day!
I'll keep my hot flashes gracias.
We are still grieving the loss of Onyx, our beloved senior mare who was ridden to near-death and then thrown away. We were blessed to have her for two years and two months before she passed at age 26.
Zeus, her partner on the trails for 15+ years and her loving companion during her retirement here is very lonely and is also grieving.
Later this evening we will be getting our next rescue mare. Meg was a Premerin baby and was adopted from Canada 11 years ago, all skin and bones. Unfortunately her savior can no longer afford to keep her due to job loss and divorce. She will have a forever home here for as long as she needs it.
She is Not a replacement for our beloved Onyx, but another mare in need and we are so very blessed to be able to have her. RIP Onyx, knowing that your Zeus will no longer be alone.
