Adoption Update – Barney

We got to check in on one of our BLM burros a few weeks ago at his forever home in Woodstock, GA. Barney is enjoying life on the farm with Michelle Allred. He spends his days and nights out in the pasture with several other horses and ponies. He is still a little shy but enjoys getting lots of treats from the kids that come to ride at the barn. We are so grateful that Barney has found such a wonderful loving home.

Adoption Update – Sweetie Pie

Sweetie Pie is a 19 year old brown and white paint mustang mare that was captured as a yearling in Salt Wells Creek, WY. She came to MWHR several years ago with another mustang, Spark Plug. Sweetie and Sparky were trained by MWHR founder, David Hesse, and severed as our ambassadors for many years. We are happy to say that Sweetie Pie has finally been adopted into her forever home by Karen McClure and now lives with former MWHR burro, Poncho, along with another horse and pony on a beautiful farm in Milton, GA. We are sad to see Sweetie Pie go but so happy for her to have found such a wonderful family.

Volunteer Training Session

On November 27th our MWHR Volunteers participated in a training session to learn more about proper handling of the horses, hoof care, groundwork basics and loading/unloading on the trailer. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the training session and we look forward to doing another more in-depth one in the near future. Huge thank you to Kelly and Lee Bates of Cooper Sandy Farm for letting us use their facility and some of their horses and to Nick Thompson the farrier for making a special appearance. We’d like to give an extra special thank you to Lee Bates for spending the entire afternoon working with our volunteers.

Deck the Stalls

Last Saturday was another busy day for MWHR. We had a table setup at the Deck the Stalls event at Save the Horses (STH). We appreciate everyone coming out and supporting the efforts of both of our rescues! As our good friends at STH say “We Are Rescue” and it takes a village to save these horses.
