All the Little Horses – Rescued Miniatures to be Auctioned December 8

In his National Book Award winning novel All the Pretty Horses author Cormac McCarthy includes vivid and moving descriptions, such as this:“he was among the horses running and in the dream he himself could run with the horses and they coursed the young mares and fillies over the plain where their rich bay and their rich chestnut colors shone in the sun and the young colts ran with their dams and trampled down the flowers in a haze of pollen…

Happy Anniversary to Sara

It was a treat to be at Equamore last week for this very special event: the one-year anniversary of Sara and her “person,” Equamore board vice-president Ruth Kennedy. Being a “person” to Sara means walking, grooming, and visiting her — as well as proffering treats (Sara and Ruth share an apple at the end of nearly every day).

A Sad Necessity

Yesterday, we had to make one of the hardest decisions horse rescuers have to make when caring for horses suffering from severe neglect. After consultation with our veterinarian when new radiographs revealed that Hoover’s hooves were continuing to deteriorate, we made the decision to allow the lovely chestnut thoroughbred to go to his final rest.   Even though alert and apparently healthy, Hoover spent much of his time lying down. When he walked, he was forced to use his hind legs…
