We have taken in 26 horses, minis, donkeys, mules this year. That is quite an accomplishment. We have been able to do this due to dedicated volunteers, donors, adopters and a great network of people. To continue to do such work we continually need donations to feed and care for the horses we have. Without sufficient donations we have to reduce the number we save even if we have room for more. Please consider a tax deductible donation to our rescue. You can donate through PP at email@example.com or via snail mail at 125 Fishtown Road, Mystic CT 06355

Smudge, Bella and Mollie have gone to new homes. Corta, Angella and Mallory have been rescued and we helped find a home for a pinto Paso names Sugar. Corta is moving from foster to our rescue on Memorial Day. Shiloh is doing great at her foster in New Hampshire and is enjoying green pastures and room to roam. Savannahs foster said she wants to adopt her. Stella is still struggling but hopefully improving. Lastest antibiotics is getting our of her system and true test will be how she holds up after that.

We have saved 8 horses in part due to Mary and Brian and Eleanor opening up their barn and fields to take in horses when we were full here. We are totally full now and can not save any more until be place some. Since the beginning of the year we have saved:
1. Obsidian TWH- adopted
2. Storm TWH- adopted
3. Tumbleweed- registered Paint
4. Shy girl (Morgan/TWH? )
5. Cammy - TWH
6. Stella - gaited Morgan?
7. Bella - TWH
8. Pale Ale- Saddlebred?
Cammy, Shy Girl, Stella and Bella all were sick and we accumulated over 2000 dollars in bet bills- OUCH. Tumbleweed is lame and will be evaluated by a vet tomr. Bella is ready for her forever home- lovely gaits and trail horse. Pale Ale would love a home where someone can continue his training. Shy girl is looking for a home, Cammy we need to evaluate.
Let others know about our website, we also have a FB page- link over on right

Shy Girl (Camelot #359) was our latest Save joing 5 others from 2010 (actually two of those saves have already found homes!!!!) We have been busy saving lives.......need to continue to find ways to generate funds to keep up with expenses. Thanks to all who donate and support our various fundraisers! Vicki one of our volunteers is applying for some grants for some facilities upgrades/needs and hopefully something will come of this. Volunteers are busy as bees putting the various horses through their paces- Jade even has had a rider on her while being led o a lead line- PROGRESS; Smudge, Raven, Pale Ale, Chance are all getting worked at longe with saddle and bit to prepare for riding. Bella is being ridden, Tumbleweed was ridden and had nice W-T-C but was discovered to be off and we are now trying to identify problem and resolve. Need to lime and fertilize paddocks to prepare for some additional seeding once weather warms. Mollie our mini mule will be going to a foster in ~ April and someone is coming to look at Smudge our gaited pony next week. .

In Nov/Dec we saved a mini mule, three TWH and a gaited pony with help from fundraising from individuals through equine BB, ABR and AC4H. We had several folks- Fran, Doug and Vicki help out with fostering so we could save some additional horses. Thanks to all for this group effort that allowed us to save more lives! We have saved 14 horses/asses (this is meant as a term of endearment) this year because of suppot from so many. We hope to continue to save many lives in 2010 .We do have some rescues currently with us that may be more difficult to place but hopefully things wil work out .We have placed: Lily, Moonshine, Experanza and Rocky, with Savannah currently residing at a foster. We have had interests expressed for Shiloh and Tequila and hope that they all find loving homes in 2010.

We have a whole crew of new volunteers and they along with our older crew (not age- been volunteering longer) have been a busy as bees. A rescue we pulled a month ago and who was initially treated for a respiratory infection has now broke with Strangles :-(
We have several folks interested in our available horses so we hope we can place some so we can rescue some more! We have lined up an elementary school to come for a visit and they alos want to do a community project for our Equine Rescue. Still waiting to hear from IRS about 501c3 status , Buying a load of hay to get us through next 2 months......then have funds to get another 2 months worth. Hope to get some more donations to help increase our rescue funds. Our solar water troughs are to be delivered this week! Look forward to seeing how these work since our electric bill has gone through the roof the last few years heating three 75 gallon water troughs with a heating coil. Things are going very well and if we can keep the donations coming in we hope to save several more horses before years end.

We have completed the run in shed which has been primed by Rich of RAD works in North Stonington with primer donated by Cyr painting. Savannah is gaining weight and is ready for adoption and Jade is getting worked in our newly created round pen behind the barn with our trainer Tricia Babcock who is helping us out .Thanks Tricia. Ruby is getting larger and we need to get vet out to check her possible pregnancy status. Chance is ready to find a new home to go where she can be brought along in a specific discipline. Tomorrow we are picking up a SSH that is an owner surrender. We will then be full for the winter unless Savannah of Chance finds a home. We have had several more volunteers express an interest in joining us and we are looking forward to their contributions. Our auction was successful and should help pay for hay for the next 4 months or so. We purchases some solar water heaters for the winter as well as a a large number of corral panels. We are doing well but as always can use more cash donations or donations fo hay and grain. What a beautiful fall we have had. Heres to a mild winter:D

Jade is starting to work with a trainer- Melissa Babcock. Jade is a spirited lady who loves people. Savannah our recent rescue came to us very sick , skinny, bad feet and lots of old wounds on her. She is now on the mend and starting to eat. She is getting some spunk in her now and nickers when we come to the barn. She is very calm and sweet and we look forward to placing her in a loving home. She is a racking horse and has beautiful movements. We have finshed a new run in shed with an attached tack room and we have bought some additional fence panels to make various turn out areas in our new paddock. Our art auction is winding down and will provide badly needed dollars to buy hay for the winter. We have purchased some solar water troughs so we can be more GREEN. Thanks to all who have supported us. The horses are thankful too!
