We have some sad news. Whiskey, who has been with us since the age of 8 and is now 15, is going blind. He sticks like glue to Trooper. So our plan (as soon as we are financially able) is to purchase corral panels, as we utilized everything we had left for the round pen project. Since Trooper is his buddy, he will be moving with him so their area will be good size and the shade is already up. Whiskey is a magnificent looking boy, with quite the sense of humor. We know how to care for blind horses as we have cared for several through the years. I have seen Recurrent Uveitis in many Appaloosas. Whiskey is sponsored by Patty Skidmore monthly. We are going to make this transition in his life as easy as possible.

We're searching for used panels. We will need 14 straight panels (12 ft long by 5 ft high) and a gate. If you know of any available locally, please let us know. We haven't had any luck yet and may have to purchase new ones at approx $120/ea. As you can see, this is a major expense and we'd very much appreciate your help. 

Please see the donate page on the MHR web for instructions on sending checks or making a paypal donation.

Please don't forget to check our facebook page. It's an open group, so you don't have to be a facebook member to see it.

As always, thank you very much for your assistance.

The cycle of life

As we await the little long ears that BradyLynn is carrying and seems not to want to let go of at this point, we have some sad news to share with you all.

Misty, the Queen of MHR&S and mother of Spirit, received her wings very early this morning. She has not been doing well for the past few months and has been closely watched. Due to the many, many breeding episodes during  her life, her body began to fail her. Her uterine issues came back this week and early this morning, the vet, Dr Henesler, was called.  She was in renal failure and he assisted her in getting her wings.

Because of irresponsible constant breeding by her owners, Misty was almost always in foal. Once she became "too old" but in foal she was being sent to slaughter when Stephanie and the MHR&S supporters found her and rescued her.
Her last delivery was Spirit, Barbaro's Spirit.

Now we await BradyLynn's last long ear foal. She will never be bred again.  This is our  solemn promise to all the mares at MHR.

Long live Queen Misty
