A great big thank you to Gemma Kepinska for donating these barefoot tools. They have made it here to us from our volunteer from the UK!

Oy. Poor Stella ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿฆ„ . Stella got very freaked out about being touched last week and it took a bit to see that her rain rot had come back with a vengeance ๐Ÿ˜ซ Our vet came out and started her on SMZs to try to knock it out, and she's still on #coatdefense powder  but right now I can't rub it in too much. It looks like it's been creeping around any area I hadn't yet touched and then just exploded again. On the bright side she's really good about getting meds. Here's hoping Stella feels better fast! . #wildponyeventing #frostmoonfarm #mustangstellasjourney
Horse Care #101 (Let's Learn About Thrush) — Our pal, Blue, has thrush so we thought it might be of interest to learn a bit more about it.  Thrush is a bacterial infection that occurs on the hoof of a horse, specifically in the region of the frog. The "frog" covers about 25% of the bottom of the hoof and acts as a shock absorber for the foot when it makes impact with the ground, decreasing the force placed on the bones and joints of the leg. The frog is also an important part of the horse's circulatory system — it pumps blood up the horse's leg each time the frog makes contact with the ground. Therefore, farriers try to keep the frog as large and ground-covering as possible when they trim or shoe the feet.  The bacterium that causes thrush occurs naturally in the animal's environment — especially in wet or muddy conditions. Some horses are more at risk of developing thrush, especially those with deep clefts, or narrow or contracted heels. Such appears to be the case for Blue, who has had thrush previously on this left front hoof, but now has it on his right front hoof. (You can see the difference between Blue's healthy hoof and his infected one in the photos. The frog is the triangular part of the hoof.) Our #farrier, Scott Beebe first noticed that Blue might have a new infection a couple of weeks ago and suggested we have our vet, Dr. Paul Patton, take a look at it. Dr. Patton wrapped Blue's infected hoof (see photo) and prescribed a care regimen, which included having Scott put shoes on Blue's feet and apply fresh wound dressing. Scott has also added a steel plate over Blue's shoe to help keep the infected foot dry. We're happy to report Blue is recovering from his infection.  We'd like to extend a big "Thank You" to Patton Equine Services and Scott Beebe for their ongoing, excellent care of our horses. We'd also like to thank  everyone who donates to Camp Able - your generosity makes providing this care possible.  Once fully rehabilitated, Blue will

It's #testimonialtuesday! ๐Ÿ’“ Thank you, Elizabeth for the generous words concerning our work to stand up for wild horses and the current #blm round ups of horses and burros.

In 2018, 9,749 horses and 1,723 burros – were permanently removed from public lands – the largest number in nearly a decade. The 2018 removal number represents almost three times the 4,209 animals removed in 2017.

UPDATE……MARCH 18, 2019……. Okay, kids, I know I haven’t done one of these in several days but, hey – that’s just the way it is, huh?  This coming Wednesday – the day after tomorrow – young Jumpin’ Jack Flash (see pics from this morning) is going to be gelded.  We know that, although all of our volunteers just love the little rascal & would probably find the entire process very interesting, Dr. K will do it in the early afternoon when there won’t be an adoring audience.  It’s surely time, too.  Every time one of the mares walks back & forth to the arena, young Jack goes nuts, whinnying & carrying on to the point where he tries to climb his front gate. None of us needs that, now, do we?  By the way, Jack’s little operation will run us in the neighborhood of about $500, when you factor in the tranqs, the surgery itself, the follow-up meds, Doc’s follow-up(s) & all that.  We’d really appreciate it if you could see your way to helping us a little on that front.  You know the drill: hit the ‘Donate’ button on this page or on our website or PayPal or via a check through the mail.  On behalf of a young guy who’ll feel & act a whole lot better in the end, thanks in advance!  Speaking of young Jack, how’s Journey & her impending baby?, you ask.  Well, she’s bellying down pretty good, that’s for sure. Her udders haven’t really shown us that she’s all that close, yet, but you never know – especially with a horse that’s given birth at least twice & probably more while in the wild. Our best SWAG (Scientific Wild-Ass Guess) is still around the first of April, but hey – who knows, right?  Within the next week or so, I’ll have to buy nine (I counted ‘em) 4’x8’ sheets of plywood & we’ll attach them on the inside of the fence in the ‘out’ part of Journey’s house, like we did when Sunny was born. We don’t want the young’un to get injured by getting hung up on the fence or anything.  Just so you know, we’re

#mindfulmonday: Meet Sheena, everyone! ๐Ÿ‘‹ Sheena, a white Percheron, is a former work horse. Born in the late ‘90’s, she was forced to work past the age of twenty during which time she sustained several permanent injuries. We heard about her situation and came to her rescue to prevent her from ending up at auction.  Although Sheena was not turned out regularly with other horses before, she surely has adapted well to sanctuary life and being in the company of other mares since arriving at Equine Advocates.๐Ÿด . . . . . . .  #equineadvocates #pmurescue #horserescue #equinerescue #horsesanctuary #equinesanctuary #chathamny #upstateny #hudsonvalley #columbiacountyny #charity #nonprofit #goodcause #philanthropy #sanctuarylife #sanctuarylove #equinelife #equinelove #drafthorse #donkey #mule #rescue #animalrights #animaladvocacy #equinetherapy #fortheanimals

#repost @little_brook_farm โ˜˜๏ธ Happy St. Patrick’s Day โ˜˜๏ธ In this photo is Irish (registered name: Royal Flush), the only horse at Little Brook Farm who used to live in Ireland! After being imported to the USA and spending many years as a successful show horse, his owner lost interest in riding and he wound up in a horrible, neglectful situation. Shortly before we got him, he had his jaw broken from being kicked by a horse he didn’t know. He was lame, emaciated and about to go to slaughter. Fortunately, the luck of the Irish was with him and he found his way to us! We feel equally blessed to have him here. He is one of the kindest, most generous horses we have ever met. In this photo, @summer_lbf is loving on him.  @little_brook_farm holds a special place in my ๐Ÿ’š. Their dedicated staff does remarkable work with great love and care.

It's particularly poignant to see the ex-racehorses here at Springwood what with all the Cheltenham horrors occuring recently. As you can see, the way these horses want to live, and choose to live when they are given the freedom to decide, is a far cry from the trauma and stress of the race track. Missy (in the first picture) was bred for racing and came to the sanctuary with a lot of trauma. She's come a long way  in trusting people now that she is being given respect, love and healing. They are incredibly forgiving animals. You can sponsor Missy at www.springwoodsanctuary.com Every single penny goes towards keeping their tummies full and their minds peaceful ๐Ÿ’™ #rodneydonkey #horsesanctuary #rescuehorse #rescueracehorse #animalsanctuary #rescueanimals #donkeysanctuary #rescuedonkey #horsesofinstagram #racehorserescue #racehorse #donkeysofinstagram #mindfulness #mindfulnessretreat #mindfulnesscoach #mindfulnesswithanimals #vegansanctuary #veganretreat #accidentlyvegan #vegan #sussex #westsussex #handcross #donkeyoftheday #donkey #donkeylove

With nearly 50 equines under our care, fence repair is a constant maintenance task at Camp Able. The other day we got a little extra help with this chore from Ed McGlothlin, from McGlothlin Associates Construction, and his grandson, Dalton. They were out to the ranch to work on another task when they noticed a problem with one of the fences. Luckily, they had their welding equipment on their truck and they quickly made the repairs. Thanks Ed and Dalton! #magichappenshere #equinetherapy #therapeuticriding #horsesanctuary

Two weeks from tomorrow is an event you don't want to miss! It's not every day we get to throw a baby shower for one of our horses, so help us celebrate the impending arrival of a very special - and very lucky - foal!  Journey and her young colt Jack were rescued from auction on June 2, 2018. They and several other wild horses had been rounded up on the Tohono O'odham Indian Reservation and through a collaborative effort with many horse rescues - all herd members were saved.  Little did we know that when we brought mama and baby home to safety at Tierra Madre, there was already another little one on the way!  We anticipate Journey's foal to arrive at the beginning of April, so join us for a baby shower open ranch to celebrate! We'll have games, a raffle, snacks for purchase, painting with horses, tours galore, merchandise for sale, and crafts for all ages. See you there!  #tierramadrehorseandhumansanctuary #tierramadrejourney #horsesofinstagram #horsesanctuary #pregnant #mustang #babyshower #nonprofit #fundraiser #cavecreek #cavecreekaz #horse #horseranch #horserescue #horsesanctuary #thingstodoinphoenix #familyfun

Benny showing off his lovely bilberry lips ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿด Was lovely to see Benny again who enjoyed the spring forage I had collected before the session of young Cleavers, Yarrow, Wormwood, Comfrey, Angelica, Dandelion and Wild garlic with gusto.  Had a lovely Flehmen response at the start of the session to the Angelica root essential oil. This is usually in response to a substance or area that is particularly interesting and transfers the scent to the vomeronasal organ.  Benny was much more interactive this time and enjoyed a variety of herbs, including nettle, rosehips and the bilberry. As these contain a wide range of vitamins and minerals they should be supportive for his Cushing's, along with the chaste berry he selected.  Benny also selected many herbs that had cool and drying (or astringent) energetics which could be associated with and supportive for his arthritis.  Hoping to set up a small herb garden at the Sanctuary over the next few months which am excited about.  Once again thank to the staff and volunteers @onlyfoalsandhorses who do a fantastic job.  #horse #bilberry #springforage #herbalsession #herbal #zoopharmacognosy #selfselection #cushings #flehmen #sanctuary #horsesanctuary #herbs #essentialoils

BREAKING: BLM rescinds disastrous sales policy  We applaud the BLM's decision to RESCIND the sales policy it set in place in May 2018, which allowed the agency to sell up to 24 horses to one buyer at a time, with no restrictions on the number of times that someone could purchase horses.  The BLM yesterday restored the 4 horse per sale limit which was originally put in place after the BLM was exposed for illegally selling nearly 2,000 wild horses to a Colorado kill buyer who sent the horses to slaughter in Mexico.
Meet Selena! . Following the Forest Service roundup and removal of 220 wild horses from the Devils Garden Wild Horse Territory in 2017, a group of 28 "weanlings" were separated from their mothers at the BLM Litchfield Corrals. Shortly after, 25 of these babies died from antibiotic-induced colitis and Selena, the beautiful bay featured below, was just one of three survivors of this tragic incident. . Selena is nearly two-years-old, has long legs and a stunning face. She is personable, willing and extremely intelligent! โœจ[Learn more at link in profile!]โœจ

This #throwbackthursday we’re honouring Boo, who arrived at Redwings 10 years ago this month! ๐ŸŽ‚  Our very own gentle giant, Clydesdale cross Boo very sadly came to us after he was cruelly shot in the eye. Having previously lost his other eye to cancer, poor Boo was left blind. His owner contacted us for help and we welcomed him into the Sanctuary where he could receive the specialist care he needed for the rest of his life.  Despite his sight loss, Boo doesn’t let it hold him back and this special boy certainly lives life to the fullest! He currently lives with his best friend companion, Flynn, and loves coming up to the fence for a cuddle and scratch whenever he hears people approaching. A true inspiration! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’• #redwingshorsesanctuary #horsesofinstagram #equestrian #instahorse #horsesanctuary #inspirational #blindhorse

POWER UP, JANI!  MARCH 13, 2019 UPDATE……. Well, Dr. K & Brother John & Cousin Joe were here all morning, working on our girl.  Doc tubed her again & gave her another (& final) dose of DMSO - which, by the way, seems to be helping Jani quite a bit. She moved a little better – a little less sore – this morning as we brought her up into the breezeway to work on her.  Doc took radiographs of Jani’s front hooves & they showed that her coffin bones haven’t rotated & that she has plenty of sole depth. Very good.  Because Jani also has arthritis in her pasterns & carpus (knees) in both front legs, Doc wanted to be absolutely certain that her soreness is in her hooves & not somewhere else north of there. So, she ‘blocked’ her – deadening the nerves in the hooves - &, yes, Jani walked better, with less soreness. Meaning, of course, that our assumptions were correct: the problems are in her hooves.  That done, & armed with plenty of intelligence – radiographs, nerve blocks, hoof testing, etc. – it was decided that John & Joe should put ‘clogs’ on her. If you’ll recall, Jani had 'castings' on toward the end of last year, but this is her first time in clogs.  I’ve posted several pics, but here’s the general description of clogs, although I’m probably off an iota or two on some of the details:  John traces the bottom of Jani’s hooves & draws the tracing onto two half-inch sheets of plywood. Once they’re cut with a hand jigsaw, he hot-glues two together for each hoof, also holding them together with wood screws.  Then, he puts two different kinds of cushioning material on the bottoms of Jani’s hooves before attaching the clogs. One kind of cushioning is for the sole & the other is for the heel.  Then, he puts fiberglass over the whole megillah which, when it hardens, holds everything together.  The entire ‘clog’ process for both hooves takes nearly two hours from start to finish. It’s a lot of work & entails a good working knowledge
