Come to California They Said. You Will Make New Friends They Said.
Jake (El Jahklan) and Toni (ToniTheTiger) arrived in California the weekend of January 6, 2018. The trip from Alabama was over 2,000 miles.
The boys arrived in good spirits, drank lots of water and commenced touring their temporary quarters.
Thanks to our friend Cindy B. for agreeing to house the boys until TIER is able to purchase a shelter for their new corral. WE tapped our reserves & Funds were raised to go toward transport, but we do not currently have enough funds for a shelter/delivery & install. We are working on it.
We knew there was some rain coming, and did not want the boys to be stuck out in the open after such a long trip. Fortunately, Cindy B. did not hesitate when asked if these boys could stay awhile. They have plenty of room to move about, a large 2 sided shelter to get under, Cindy's horses to converse with and some wooly new friends.
Until we get a shelter and have it installed, the boys will stay where they are, be transitioned over to alfalfa hay (they were previously eating a grass hay, pelleted feed and senior), and will be supplemented with senior feed. Cindy will keep a watchful eye on the boys as they experience a new climate, different feed and different water.
