Good evening to all,
In the past week, MHR has been asked to receive three extra horses. The first one is Cosmo who had been adopted from MHR five years ago. The owners, abiding by the contract, returned him when they realized they couldn't care for him any longer. He is a quite thin, but we hope he will regain his weight in no time. He is 11-12 years old. He's a sorrel gelding with a white blaze.
Additionally, a long-time client of Rob's has asked MHR to take in her two mares, Candy and Katie. She also is no longer able to care for them due to economic circumstances. This wonderful lady is doing what is right for her animals and has donated corral panels to MHR.
Candy - light colored dun mare 23. Needs a little weight at tail bone area (muscle tone). Her diet will entail rice bran, twinkies (bales of hay). Very gentle horse.
Katie - thin 18 - Sorrel ..A medical stall will be built for her. She has been fed grass hay only, but that's not good enough. Dr. Hadland has seen her and prescribed things for her, which her owner hasn't been able to afford, hence the surrender to MHR.
We picked up Candy and Katie this afternoon. It was heart wrenching for the owner this I can tell you. By the time we got them settled in and some other work done, it was too late to get pics but I will have photos tomorrow.
I am also still working on getting the cam up again. Gonna just kick the computer or shake the camera.
The girls and Cosmo are doing well..and so is our precious Charity. I will be having Dr. Hadland out to check Katie, Cosmo and Candy. I want their teeth checked for sure, and anything else that they may need. Supplements are going to be the big thing, Rice Bran, Sr. etc. if you would like to help these three, please contact Shadow Mtn Feed 775-727-5527 speak to PATTI OR RON CROSS (owners) and the will place on our account.
Thank you all so much for such positive support...you are helping the lives of what our mission is!!!
Stephanie and Rob
