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.

11/14/2017 - Bo-Dee-Oh-Doh had shoes on all 4 way overgrown hooves. Heels were bruised from standing on stacked up feet. Pulled the shoes and he stepped out fine. Figure he is mid-teens?

RUBY TOO: A Little Relief
11/7/2017 - LOVE our farrier!!  I called him to tell him we had a new arrival that really needed his help due to very overgrown hooves plus past injuries that compromised her feet & her overall comfort.

Lovely: Too Soon...she has gone
9/21/2017 - Sadly, Forever Lovely has left us way too soon.  I realize that she was an aged mare that had suffered neglect for way too long.  But I really hoped she would be with us for at least a few years. 9/21/2017 I found Lovely laying in her corral and realized she had passed.  Mariah was at the feeder eating hay and ...

(Deacon cruising around prior to Vet/Farrier)

Lincoln: I'm a Super Hero!
8/22/2017 - First off, let me say that I am accident prone.  Seems I manage to to get cuts, scrapes, dings and dents just because I am jaunty, lighthearted and a klutz.  I put a dent, scrape on my face a couple months ago that made a flap of skin on my beautiful face.  It was cleaned & medicated regularly and I regularly ...

8/20/2017 - Lacey is getting some saddleblanket education at her adoptive home with Kelly. She doesn't seem overly impressed with the situation does she?  I kinda doubt that she will ever grow into that blanket.  I love that Kelly and Dana spend so much time working with her on new

8/20/2017 - Whew!  The swelling from Deacon's cellulitis appears to be decreasing.  His appetite is good (Alfalfa Hay, Purina Equine Senior, Soaked Alfalfa Pellets).  He was turned out to get some excercise on his own and he seems to think that the Hay in the back of the cart is better than the hay in his feeder!
He gets ...
