ChiefChief
Chief was seized with 2 other horses for severe neglect. He was all bones and could not stand, even with lots of people helping. TBAR spent the night in the pasture with Chief, hoping he would be able rise in the morning. But his weakened body could not recover. Now Chief is at Peace with all the food he can eat and lots of love. He will never suffer again.

Cowboy
Sometimes, no matter how hard we try to save them, it’s an animal’s time to go. Such was the case with Cowboy. Rescued from neglect, we’re thankful he new love, care and happiness in the end. Our hearts are heavy that he left us so soon.

Little Bit and Ben 3

Lil Bit and Big Ben
Lil Bit was so tiny, even for a mini, and Big Ben was so big. And yet they were best friends. They were the favorites of visitors to TBAR and will be deeply missed. They passed within months of each other. Lil Bit died suddenly as can happen with tiny minis. Big Ben was older and died peacefully while fighting a serious illness.

 

Sadie2

Sadie – TBar #D246
Sadie knew it was her time, so she laid down by her pups, Jasmine and Marcus and went to sleep. We’re comforted that  she knew lots of love in the end.

whitehorse1Toot – TBar #H090
Toot was seized by law enforcement and was severely starved. TBAR and the vets did everything they could to save Toot, but his poor body couldn’t come back. It broke our hearts to see such a young horse suffer so; and his story still pains us. At least now he is at Peace with all the food he can eat and lots of love.

Tbar Heaven 2006

Chai

Once upon a time (a couple of weeks ago), Melanie, founder of True Blue Animal Rescue (http://www.t-bar.org), was called to the local auction house to rescue a donkey that was slated for the auction, meaning it would most likely go to a slaughterhouse buyer.

Melanie shows up to pick up the donkey and is told by a woman about another horse that was brought in and tagged for auction – a small Arabian horse that was thin, but gentle, good with kids and had lots of years left in her. The owners said they’d pull her from the auction for $150.

While Melanie is there looking over the little Arabian, she notices another horse in the far corner of the pen with a glassy-eyed look – the one you see in a horse that has been run through the auction already. Inquiring about the horse, Melanie is told that nobody bought it because none of the killer buyers were there. He looked pretty sad – skinny, shabby and a swollen knee. It wasn’t hard to guess where he would end up.

Melanie continues to look over the Arabian; and to her surprise the other horse walks right up to her and puts his head on her chest. She thought “Oh no, not this one too!” Melanie goes back to checking out the Arabian. Well, the other horse walks over and puts his head in her chest again, so she hugs him. Now there’s no way she can let this guy go through the auction again only to end up at the slaughterhouse. As she said, “He didn’t know he already had her ‘at hello’, as was said in the movie Jerry McGuire”. As Melanie is walking out of the pen, this same horse walks in front of her and lies down groaning as he went. Melanie had to stop; and she told him “OK, OK. You can come home with me too.” So True Blue Animal Rescue buys the little Arabian and the boy horse, saving them both from slaughter too.

Move forward a couple of weeks now. Chai, as he’s now called, Hebrew for ‘life’, symbolizing his second chance at life, has been enjoying good food, a warm stall, lots of love from Melanie at True Blue Animal Rescue, and good veterinary care. Turns out he’s about 30 years old and a sweetheart. One morning, Melanie goes out to feed and finds that Chai passed over the Rainbow Bridge during the night. He looks peaceful, at rest, calm, and contented.

Do you see the sacred task that Melanie was asked to perform?

Melanie was CALLED to save this horse – he literally begged for his life; and she answered with a loving YES and took him home. Chai was able to enjoy love, comfort, peace and compassion and leave this life peacefully for greener pastures because of her grace and compassion.

This was the Divine working through Melanie. And she listened and followed the Guidance.All in the life of Animal Rescue…

fallon

 

Fallon is a 15 year old Llama that was donated to T-Bar because her owner wanted her to have a good home. She will be a permanent resident at a T-Bar facility so she won’t have to become stressed over another move. She is a sweet animal, but not especially friendly. She would rather just be fed and then left alone. We enjoy watching her and talking to her while she intently listens.

Nicole choked and had to be tubed by a vet to get the blockage out. This intervention caused damage to Nicole’s esophagus that she could not recover from. Even mash would make her choke. We laid her to rest in order to allow her peace.

Yoda – TBar #D127
Anniken and his brother Yoda were found in the middle of the street and were rescued before being hit by a car. Both were in bad shape – very sick little boys. They received much love, attention, veterinary care and prayers, and put up a fight. But in the end, Yoda couldn’t hang on and now Anniken must go on for both of them.

skye

Here is a picture of Skye. She was donated to Tbar when her owner could no longer take care of her. She was malnourished and had an injured leg that could no longer be straightened out. Because of this she was also foundered in her front hooves and could not stand up without pain. Sadly Skye did not live long after she was taken to the vet. She was weak and did not have the fight in her to survive her condition. We will not forget her.

tazTaz left us on June 27, 2004. He got colic from the rich grass that grew during all the rain we had been having during this time. The rich grass along with his cribbing was a terrible combination. The air he sucked in while cribbing caused the grass in his stomach to ferment quickly which caused the colic. Taz’s rolling caused a twist in his intestine. His foster Mom walked him and gave him bantamine before the vet came, but the twist must have already been there. The vet treated him and gave him mineral oil, but nothing worked. He was taken into the vet’s office where the twist was found during palpation. Poor Taz was in a great deal of pain and exhausted. He was ready to be set free so his foster Mom, Melanie DeAeth made the decision to put him to sleep.

He will always be grateful to Rama Santschi for saving his life. She took him in and helped him gain weight when he was the walking skeleton seen in this picture. Even after gaining weight he needed to gain trust in humans. He thanks his foster Mom, Melanie DeAeth for helping him to do this. He learned to trust her and felt safe in his foster home. He had a good life while he was here. He also had the special purpose of being the reason why True Blue Animal Rescue was created. This rescue was created to give sanctuary to Taz and other emotionally disturbed animals like Taz. He will never be forgotten and True Blue Animal Rescue will go on saving animals and giving them a safe place to live in Taz’s memory.

God Bless you Taz, I know you are running free in open fields and you finally are freed from all your sadness and worries. Thank you for giving me your trust.
