Cinnamon has been Adopted!

It took us nearly three years to agree that Cinnamon was ready to go to a forever home because she was not treated well before her arrival. When we did decide to place her as available we knew that she needed more individual time and attention than what she was getting with us.

Cinnamon has been adopted by a military retiree who needs her as much as she needs him. She immediately dropped her head to him and nuzzled for a long while. Cinnamon does not bow to anything. She will get the time and care she so deserves and hopefully will help to heal her new person.

We will miss Cinnamon – Shady is quite upset with us – but know that she will be in good hands.

Sugar is HOME!

Sugar arrived last year in June underweight and very sensitive in her mouth. Today she went to her forever home with Dean, Amanda, and their children to be part of the little herd they are growing. She’s no longer underweight (very much the opposite) and will allow most everything with her mouth. We are excited that she has a new home and will definitely miss her. Peanut has been letting us know that he misses her all day.

Daisy has been adopted!

Daisy met a potential adopter on Thursday and he fell in love!

Today during all the chaos Daisy moved to her new home in Riceboro. She was loved on upon arrival and got some serious grooming time.

Reports say she was missing her herd here but she should settle in just fine. She will probably be in charge at her new home instead of constantly challenging Cinnamon.

We are so excited and wish Daisy and her new family all the best!

Such a busy day!

Today was a very busy day at the rescue!

First and foremost

THANK YOU VERY MUCH

to Ayla, Brian, Jill, and Chris for coming out and helping with all the various chores that were accomplished today!

We started the day removing fence that had been damaged, this is a job all by itself.

Then we were all needed to round up Daisy, she didn’t want to be caught today. (More details in a separate post)

Then Brian went back to fencing while Jill was exercising Cinnamon, Shady, and Baydom.

Of course Fancy had to get in on all the excitement and first figured out how to open a ‘horse proof’ gate. Then she got her head stuck between the gate and the post.

Cinnamon does NOT behave like she is in pain. She does however behave like she has an old hip injury. She crosses her rear left leg in front of her right. So… further examination and hopefully explanations to come.

Shady just was not accepting a bit today. After further review he is due for a dental. He was then ridden with his halter and lead ropes so he could still get a decent workout. Shady is so very responsive when he’s not misbehaving.

Baydom DOES know how to trot! He requires a lot of prep and redirection but he wants to please his rider, he really wants to run too.

South Eastern Equine Rescue in Hahira, GA came by to pick up Ms. Leiva. This was bittersweet. Leiva is such a great big baby! She will definitely be missed but we are very happy her road to recovery with her feet will begin on Monday. Sabih is already missing his buddy.

Ayla and Chris grabbed Niache and worked on some trust building. Niache is a complete gem once she gets that lead rope on her. She knows it’s time to work and her war with people and horse takes a pause. Ayla rode Niache bareback and actually got a trot out of Mrs. STUBBORN.

The front fence near the entry gate was completely removed. An additional walk through gate and wood posts were installed. By the time renovations are done all the T-posts will be replaced with wood posts. We only have around 400 remaining.

We wanted to move Sebastian in with Sabih but he still doesn’t appreciate Gibbs the goat. Instead Cheyenne is hanging out with him to see if they will click ok. Did we mention Sabih is missing Leiva?

Sir John had a really good day and enjoyed his cuddles from our visitors. We found out some of the history on Sugar from one of her original owners. 

Do you remember we said a busy day? Early bedtime after a good muscle soak for the humans tonight!
