Howdy everyone! Thought you might like to hear the latest on some of the rescue horses!
Click on a name on the bar on the left to read that horse's story. The names in White are horses that have homes. The names in Salmon are horses who are residents of TIER and can be sponsored, or are residing at TIER until a suitable adoptive home can be found. TIER's adoptable horses can be sponsored until they find their forever home. Sponsoring or adopting a TIER horse will allow us to rescue another horse.

Travis Johnson came by today to evaluate Otis & Badger. Attached is the LONG video of OTIS' session. Sorry it is kind of "jumpy" as it is several short videos put together. It covers the major points of the session. Thank you Travis for taking so much time with these boys.
Sugs Lil Badger: Training Evaluation
8/10/2019 - Unfortunately, I did not get any pictures of Badger's training session as my camera was full after using it to record OTIS's training session. Travis encountered a nervous distrusting and reactive soul when he did Badger's evaluation. He spent a long time with this boy and by the end of the session he was much more relaxed. He ...
Sugs Lil Badger: Chiro adjustment & evaluation
8/7/2019 - Chiropractor Dawn Fletcher and her husband Thad came out and spent a long time with Badger.  A couple days later we had Travis Johnson come out to evaluate him. Badger is a pretty nervous/untrusting boy.  Dawn & Thad took their time with him and unlocked a few areas that were in need of release.  Thad spent ...
OTIS: OTIS has arrived!
8/3/2019 - Thanks to Ruby Lingo who transported Otis from Texas to TIER, he arrived around 7:20 PM in great shape.  Came off the trailer nicely (I was expecting him to leap down), stood with a dignified look while I smothered his face with kisses from his QT Mom Kathy and some from me, then walked calmly to his pen.  His ...
Lucille: Looking Better!
7/31/2019 - Finally! Lucille is finally looking better and feeling better.  She had gotten caught between the feeder and the fence and went down some time ago.  Plus, after a couple of visits from our farrier, her feet are not sore.

OTIS: Headin to California in a week or so
7/25/2019 - Transport has been arranged for OTIS to leave Texas and head to TIER on 8/2/2019.  If there is a change, we will update.  We purchased a Big D halter (large for his big head!) and lead rope for his trip home.  It should be arriving shortly at Kathy’s quarantine facility.  A veterinarian checked him ...
Grady: Labs are back!
7/25/2019 - Spoke to the vet this morning and the labs came back indicating habronema only!  Woot!  Woot!  No Squamous Cell Carcinoma thank goodness.  We will continue to treat his eyes with the steroid eye ointment and, IF necessary, go back to the vet for steroid injection in the tissue surrounding the eyes in a week ...
Grady: Vet Visit Saga & Pony Bun
7/19/2019 - Thanks to Dana S., Grady was transported to the vet yesterday morning (7/19/2019) to have the “lumps” at the inside corner of his lower eyelids examined.  After a brief attempt at a dash for freedom and the use of long line and a lead rope attached to his halter, we got him loaded in the trailer.  He was ...

OTIS: Got My Dancin Feet!
7/15/2019 - Farrier Day.  He had some trust issues with shoer. We got three of the four completely done. Fourth almost finished. He took all kinds if time with him. I think he will be fine with time.

Grady: Possible Ocular Sarcoids?
7/11/2019 - Grady will be going to see Dr. Thomas Hoyme next week about his eyes.  We sent pictures to Dr. Hoyme and he is thinking that the culprit is ocular sarcoids rather than a reaction to the flies.  There are NO sores on these lesions/bumps. The ointment we have been using with cortisone does reduce SOME of the ...
OTIS: I now have friends!
7/11/2019 - QT UPDATE:  We had an escape this morning. Well not really an escape but Otis was at one end of the pen ignoring me while I was trying to figure out how to get him better shade at the other end. Next thing I knew he had his head over the fence introducing himself to my gelding and donkey, so I left him. He has more grass, ...
Sugs Lil Badger: Lookin Good
7/10/2019 - Badger arrived with Jethro from the ship/kill pens in Texas.  He had quarter cracks in both front feet that were scarey!  His feet were trimmed while he was in Quarantine and our farrier trimmed him a bit after his arrival.  He is doing well.  VERY head shy and a bit nervous, but we will work with him on ...

He didn't care for the shots but as always, he was ...
