MWHR is very happy to announce the adoption of Smoochie. Congratulations to his adopter, Prudence Pitcock of Rome, GA. We know that Smoochie is going to love his new home on 30+ acres and we look forward to seeing this pair in the future at some dressage shows and maybe even making an appearance as a mustang ambassador for MWHR at some of our events.
MWHR would like to give a very special thank all of our generous 2017 donors! Without you all we could not continue on our mission of rehabilitating and re-homing these wonderful mustangs.
MWHR would like to wish all of our volunteers, donors and supporters a very Happy New Year! We hope you all are enjoying the holidays and we look forward to another wonderful year in 2018!
MWHR is thrilled that longtime resident mustang, Wren, has finally found a wonderful home. She has settled in nicely as a pasture companion for her new buddy, Comanche. Best of all, she is only a few miles around the corner from us so we’ll still get to see her. Special “thank you” to Jennifer at Dr. Marcella’s office for sending this new home our way!!
In Loving Memory of Spark Plug “Sparky”
1/1/1998 – 10/25/2017
On October 25th, 2017 we had to say “goodbye” to MWHR resident mustang Sparky. Sparky came to MWHR several years ago with another mustang, Sweetie Pie and was trained by our Founder, David Hesse. Unfortunately, Sparky suffered from COPD which had to be carefully managed by steroids. One of the side effects of long term steroid use in horses is laminitis or founder. About six weeks ago, Sparky started suffering from a serious laminitic episode and despite all efforts, his condition continued to worsen. Ultimately there was nothing else we could do to help him and his condition was causing him great pain. MWHR is extremely grateful to all of those who worked so hard to help Sparky the past six weeks. A very special “thank you” goes to Dr. Kaylin Touche with KLM Equine for the countless hours of research and consultations, as well as loving support she gave Sparky not just in the past six weeks, but in the last two years. Sparky will be greatly missed but we know that he is finally running free again.
