Ally finally arrived at the MWHR farm late yesterday afternoon. She has been staying with one of our sister rescues, Hope Reins, until we had room for her. We are so grateful for their help in picking Ally up and giving her a safe place to stay the past two months. Ally will spend some time settling in at the farm and then our trainer will begin to work with and evaluate her. We know she is 18 years old and was captured as a 2 year old from the Reveille HMA in NV. Her previous owner says she has been ridden so hopefully some TLC and a little training refresher and then she’ll be ready for adoption.
We’re excited to report that Smoochie is continuing to make great progress in his training and over the weekend he got saddled for the first time. Excited to see this handsome little guy finally under saddle
We love having the young ladies from the Pope High School Homeless Pets Club out at the MWHR Farm. Last Sunday only two of their members made it to volunteer, but those young ladies got to spend lots of quality time grooming the mustangs – Midnight, Molly, Smoochie and Wren. The horses loved their spa treatments!
We had another very busy and productive Work Day at the MWHR farm this past Saturday. Thank you again to all the wonderful volunteers who came out and helped clean up the pastures, groom horses, and fix fences. As usual, we were too busy to take pics but after all the hard work was done the horses were very happy
Sunday was an exciting milestone for one of our former mustangs, Flicka, and her adopter, Stephanie. Stephanie rode Flicka for the first time since adopting her 4.5 years ago. Flicka has a difficult past that took her a very long time to work through with the help and patience of a very special person. We are so happy for Flicka and Stephanie!
Last Saturday’s Yard & Blanket / Tack Sale was a HUGE success!!! We raised over $1,100.00 for MWHR which goes directly to the care of our horses. We are so fortunate to have such an AMAZING group of volunteers!!! I can’t thank our volunteers enough for all of their hard work leading up to the event. They spent almost 10 hours sorting, pricing and setting up everything for the sale. Don’t worry, we had a lot of fun along the way and even captured a few of our “silly moments” on camera.
