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.

10/19/2017 - Huge thanks to Ingrid L. for transporting Gray Facts, now known as Levi, all the way to our vet yesterday and bringing him back to his Foster location this morning.

10/13/2017 - I took the above picture of Connie yesterday.  She was eating/drinking and seemed ok.
Connie has left TIER.  I noticed she was "off" this morning when I went to feed.  She was not interested in food or water and then she laid down.  No thrashing or pawing.  I administered 10 cc Banamine and ...
Lincoln: Whew! No Plastic Surgery or Laser Treatment for me
9/18/2017 - It has been almost a month since I had surgery on my face to remove the skin flap/rhinoceros horn from my charming face.

They also gave me some great PURPLE ...
DEACON (Formerly Moose): Cellulitis Follow-up & Farrier
9/3/2017 -
(Deacon cruising around prior to Vet/Farrier)
Had our regular vet out to do follow-up on Deacon's Cellulitis.  Swelling has decreased.  His leg has definition and looks like a leg instead of a tree stump.  The ankle still remains "puffy" and I've been concerned about it.  He has NOT taken a ...
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 ...
Lacey-Belle's Baby: Continuing Education
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
DEACON (Formerly Moose): Swelling is Going Down
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 ...
DEACON (Formerly Moose): My Leg Got Fat!
8/17/2017 - Went out this morning to give Deacon his breakfast & Previcox and found that his left hind leg was swollen from coronet to about 4" below his stifle.  I mean SWOLLEN.  This is the leg that had been injured prior to his arrival at TIER on 7/23/2017.  Intake pics/videos from previous owners on 7/19/2017 showed ...

DEACON (Formerly Moose): Labs are back!
8/11/2017 - Just talked to Dr. Johnson re: Deacon's labs.
Labs are normal for his age/condition with no major concerns right now. We need to get some weight on him and do have a diet in place.
It is hoped that he will gain weight well and perhaps the heart murmur will resolve or lessen. Dr. Johnson would like to do the surgery in 2 ...
Moses: I'm Ok...You Ok?
8/10/2017 - Since the passing of Garrett, we have been keeping a close eye on Moses.  They were best buddies and roomates for YEARS, and I was not sure how Moses would handle Garrett being gone. He was turned out to roam wherever he wanted to today and, after visiting with about 1/2 the TIER residents, he spent most of his time near ...
DEACON (Formerly Moose): Just Strollin Along...
8/10/2017 - We let Deacon out for a stroll today.  He did meet a couple of the other horses, did a big trot for a bit, seemed to have some energy and was alert. He is eating all his hay (except for some stems), senior feed, pellets and medication.  Seems to have put on a little weight, but it's really slow.  His left hind ...

7/30/2017 - Deacon has been at TIER for a week!  He is doing well.  He has had a bath and gets a rinse off every now and then because he sweats quite a bit.  It has been humid and hot this past week.  We are playing phone tag with the dentist and will hopefully soon be able to schedule the major dental care that Deacon ...
