Upcoming Euthanasia Clinic -Tuesday Aug 31st

We have come across some very sad situations where horses who were long overdue for a peaceful end are being left to languish. Today a 30 year old mare was left behind at a property. The water had been turned off on Monday and the feed she was receiving was sparse. People concerned about the horse left her some hay but contacted us about the empty water buckets They asked us to please do something so they didn't have to watch the horse die. The person living at the property stated he did not want the horse and signed her over. It was just in time as today was another scorching hot day .
Holly the sweet and now spoiled mare from the flea market gave the last ride her body could handle and should never have been asked to make.
Rather than take a chance on her tired body giving out on a trailer ride we were able to find a way to bring the euth clinic to her. So the clinic will be in North Highlands this time

A very special thank you to Melody and Jed Durnay . They have volunteered for us at past clinics,offered Holly a soft stall to rest in , took in the Thirsty 30 mare from today and offered the use of their property for the clinic . They are the kindest hearted cowboy and cowgirl you would ever want to meet.

We have been contacted by a few other rescues with horses that need relief from constant pain.
There is room for a few more horses if the horse truly needs the service and the owner does not have the financial capability to pay the normal costs .
The horses will be treated with kindness and the owners are allowed to stay to say goodbye if they wish.

The low cost clinic is Tuesday and you can contact us at for application forms and information.
We would appreciate anybody who wishes to help sponsor a horse, fully or in part, any amount will help us be able to continue these clinics. Any sponsor donations are tax deductible. Another clinic is planned for September as well.


  1. What you are doing to help horses and owners is so very kind. Thank you for caring like you do, and for truly making a difference. Keep up the great work. Best wishes to all those involved.

    "The Rainbow Bridge"

    There is a bridge connecting Heaven & Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.

    When a beloved pet passes, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. The old and frail animals are young again. Those who are maimed are made whole. They play together all day.

    There is only one thing missing: They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth. Each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly stops playing and looks up! The nose twitches! The ears are up! The eyes are staring! And this one suddenly runs from the group.

    You have been seen, and when you and your special friend meet, you take him or her in your arms and embrace. Your face is kissed again and again, and you look once more into the eyes of your trusting friend.

    Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated...

  2. I am glad to hear that relief will come soon for these horses. Sadly there are always more, not too far behind, but their owners may just be unaware of their options.

    Having buried a few of ours out back, it is something we face every day with each one.

    Anon just had to go and post the Rainbow Bridge. Now I am getting all watery eyed at work.

  3. I forgot to add a giant Kudos! and {{{HUGS}}} to the Durnays for what they are doing and have already done.

    Saying "Thank you!" is easy to do yet often goes unsaid. When you get to Heaven there may be a stampede coming to greet you. It will be all those you have helped, wishing to show their appreciation and grattitude.
