Chloe has arrived!

She arrived last night at approximately 8pm Pahrump time. She was greeted by a very excited and tail-wagging MHR pack. The following pictures were taken this morning, and since BruNO is in charge he told her the couch was okay to be on...his rule not ours and he knows this as he high tailed off it when we got up this morning, throwing her under the bus.

Love is in the air

Here is the latest Valentine Couple, Freddy and Bright.

They are getting along very well! The engagement hasn't been announced but they are in the courting stages of their relationship, and Freddy is hoping that everyone who can will please participate in the Hearts for Hay fundraiser presently running through the month of February.

Your donations help to provide the always much needed hay for the horses at MHR&S

Thank you very much in advance for your kindness and generosity.

Freddy's check up

Freddy received his post trip exam by Dr Hadland and received TWO HOOVES UP!

Dr. Hadland and I went over all documentation received..allergies etc., past treatment so on and so forth which was all good.

He (Dr. Hadland) stated our dry environment is the best place for him. He is in great shape for his age. He said that once he sheds out we may see what he called heave lines. This is muscle that has formed due to the way he breathed. This he stated is not unusual and not to be alarmed. When it comes times for shedding he said "Stephanie, have a good time" He will probably be the first to shed out. Oh and Freddy is allergic to cat dander, but we are a kitty free zone. Not by our choice, but the choice of the dogs.

Thank you once again to Freddy's mom for opening a new chapter in his life.

Mr. Bean

Good Morning to Everyone!

There is something I would like to share with all of you. As we have stated publicly on our website and here, we were not taking in any more horses at this time due to the economy and it would have to be a extreme case. Well, as I write this, we have a special little fella headed our way.

We were approached a few weeks ago by an FOB who ten years ago rescued a Pony from auction, Mr. Bean, aka Freddy. Mr. Bean suffers from Heaves, a breathing disorder we are quite familiar with. For ten years, she loved and cared for him, but as time progressed the molds and spores of the area were taking their toll on him. Her vet advised her he either needed to move out west or be humanely put down. She contacted MHR&S.

With the information she provided me, I immediately forwarded this information to our advisory board (which is comprised of FOBs) for their advice and recommendations with all of them having a full understanding of the economy and the cost of feed. It was a united front and they said take him in! During this time, his attending veterinarian and our veterinarian have spoken extensively via telephone and our vet has received his medical records via the internet for review.

We have had experience with Heaves as we have received two horses from OH and PA who suffered from this. Both were older horses, and they both lived out the remainder of their lives breathing easy. In fact, Cowboy was adopted out a little over a year later to a family whose daughter suffered from asthma and he lived out the remainder of his life with them. He passed at the age of 32. Buttercup who was in her late 20s when she arrived lived with us until her passing in her 30s. Both breathing easy.

I applaud Mr. Bean's owner for giving him the gift of life...the 3rd chapter of his life, and for giving him all the love and care she did. It was difficult for her to say so long, but she did. He is in the best transporter's hand right now, and as of this morning is doing great. They are highly experienced professionals. Mr. Bean has his own stall and is happy to have other companions with him. They are presently on a layover and should be moving along within the next few hours, with Nevada being their first stop.

I would like to also take a moment to thank our Advisory Board for not only discussing this but for making contact with Mr. Bean's owner. They have classified him as our "Medical Emergency" a "Pony in Need." As his owner said, he has so much life and was not ready to say farewell to his place on earth, but he needed a place where he could breathe and not be afflicted with allergies. As her vet stated he needs to move out west.

So we hope that you will join us in welcoming Mr. Bean aka Freddy into our family. We anxiously await his arrival.

Thank you to all who have given him this.

Mama Dog

Today is a sad day at MHR&S as we must bid farewell to our Mama Dog. She has been an icon at MHR&S since 2004 and has met and been loved by many an FOB and others who have crossed her path. Her actual name is PJ but she received the nickname Mama Dog for her love of baby animals no matter what they were, as well as her human babies (our grandchildren). She was always there to guide the little toddlers no matter what. Mama Dog was a rescue from an animal shelter in Las Vegas. She was found wandering the streets of Las Vegas, skin and bones but we did not care, we fell in love with her. She has given so much to all of us and now it is our turn to release her with Peace and Dignity. Thank you Mama Dog for the joy you brought us and so many others.
