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.

DEACON: Please send healing thoughts/prayers for Deacon
12/7/2018 - Deacon was off his feed yesterday and today.  When I went down to check on him, his tongue was protruding from his mouth as usual.  The difference this morning is that it was a big as my boot and the left side of his mouth was swollen.

9/7/2018 - I don't share a lot of personal opinions via the internet.  Believe me when I say that is a good thing.  Just ask anyone who has met me in person or had a phone conversation with me.

LILY: Vet Visit-Holy Guacamole!
