Horse Success Stories: August 2013

Junebug

Junebug

Junebug came to TBAR as a result of an abuse case. Her companion did not survive, but Junebug fought to live. She is a sweet horse that deserves the love and tender care that her new home will give her for the rest of her life.  The scars on her body are evidence of her ‘life experiences’, but Junebug’s forever home can see her inner beauty and survivor’s Soul.

Band Aid Band Aid was born to Boo Boo shortly after arriving at her True Blue Animal Rescue foster home in 2010. Now approximately 1 year old, she would love to find a forever home along with her mama. By nature, mini donks are sweet, gentle, playful, and love human attention. They are easy keepers, get along with other animals, and are fun to have around.

 

 

 

 

 

Black Fury

WinsBlack Fury is a 3 yr old Welsh/Shetland pony gelding.

 

 

 

 

 

Boo BooBoo Boo was rescued along with 15 other mini donkeys when the Sheriff’s department found them wandering the streets. Shortly after arriving at her True Blue Animal Rescue foster home, she gave birth to a baby girl named Band Aid (Spring 2010). By nature, mini donks are sweet, gentle, playful, and love human attention. They are easy keepers, get along with other animals, and are fun to have around. They would love to be adopted together if possible. She is used to being handled and being led with halter or rope.

 

BuffyBuffy was found estray and when no owner came forward she was awarded to T-Bar. Buffy is a young horse who is halter-broke and aready to train.

This is Delta

 

 

 

Dream CatcherWhen Dreamcatcher first came to TBAR he was so skinny his knees wobbled.  Currently, DreamCatcher’s foster home reports that he has put on ALOT of weight, and that his top line has filled out nicely. He has a bit of a “hay belly” and no chest or butt yet, but nothing a little more exercise can’t cure. He leads well, is good for the farrier, and is doing well lunging in the round pen. He also enjoys a good bath, and loves attention. We haven’t tied him yet, we realized today, but we will try it out. He is still a little wary around strangers at first, but warms up quickly. We plan to pony him a little this weekend, see how he does with a group, in a new setting and how his feet hold up. They appear to be good and hard, but his heels were short and are growing out now.

Fancy

 

 

Fancy is a yearling filly, halter broke

 

 

 

 

GypsieGypsy was an estray and when no owner claimed her, she was awarded to TBAR. She is now healthy and ready for adoption. Gypsy was ridden previously and just needs a refresher.

 

 

 

HemmingwayHemmingway was wandering estray in a neighborhood and was extremely skinny. The authorities looked for an owner and when no one came forth to claim him, TBAR was awarded Hemmingway.  This older, 25 yr old horse is skin and bones but has already put on weight in his short time with TBar.  Slowly and surely, Hemmingway will be restored to full health.  His long white mane goes down to his shoulder and he has a wonderful, engaging personality. He loves cookies!

SteveSteve was seized as a 4 year old stallion in late 2006 – at the time he was wild and untouched.  At his first (and only) foster home he was gentled, castrated, and put into ground-work training – a couple months later he was started under saddle at a Ray Hunt clinic, and went on to be a great versatile trail mount, winning 2 competitive trail competitions in 2007.  The rider went on to interests outside of trail riding with other horses, and Steve has basically been turned out on pasture for the past 3 years. He has excellent ground manners, wonderful feet (never worn shoes), is an exceptionally “easy keeper” (never fed grain, and always fat) – he has a stocky build, very correct conformation, and good bones – he has never had a lameness issue and held up to heavy daily riding.   He is a fast learner and quick to please. The next home for Steve requires a handler/rider that is smart, consistent, and capable. 

Stormy

 

Storm was born a few months after his Mom was rescued from a starvation situation along with 26 other horses. Little Storm is available for adoption along with his mom.

 

 

 

 

 

 

TerraTerra was awarded to TBAR in a neglect/cruelty case. She has put on significant weight and is now ready to be adopted as a companion animal. She is a sweet mare that would look beautiful in your pasture. She would be a perfect companion for a young family or older person.

Description: Sirius and Cara are companions who have been together for 10 years and would like to be adopted together. These horses are great to be around.  Both are gentle and would make good pets for young children.  Both are broke and it would seem that they have been seriously ridden in their earlier years because of the bridle marks across the nose of each.  These horses are not pushy and tend to stay out of troubles way — like from larger horses.  They have been ridden recently are not subject to bucking or acting up.  Really, they are very sweet – probably Sirius is more apt to come to you before Cara but both are right there wanting attention.  Would trust them with children.   They stand very still for the farrier.

Geronimo2 Geronimo has been ridden in the past, but has been out to pasture for awhile, so will need a refresher course. He requires an intermediate to experienced rider. At his current foster home he is in a herd of miniature horses and donkeys and gets along fine with them. He in fact acts like the daddy. He will wait to be put up until he is sure that all the little ones are snug and warm in their beds for the night. He has good ground manners, but you might have to remind him to pay attention to you. When he is in a new situation, he likes to look around before you can get his attention. He is laid back under halter, easy to catch if you do not show him the halter but run your hand up his neck with the rope. Once you put the rope around his neck, he will lower his head for the halter.  Once he has been retrained or refreshed, he will make a great trail horse or anything his adopter would like to do with him. He is stocky, agile and beautiful. Showing the grace of his breed Granny 3-13-10   Granny, Sassy and the donkey Tonto were rescued together. Granny was extremely emaciated and was still nursing her 3 year old baby, Sassy. Granny is now healthy and at her ideal weight. She is ready for adoption.   Izzy   Izzy was a Texas A & M polo pony. She fractured her cannon bone and although she is healed and isn’t lame, she cannot be used for polo anymore. She’d make a great kids lead line or walk only horse. She’s well trained and very sweet. As you can see she’s very tall!   JeffBridges

Gracie

 

Gracie was days from death when she was rescued. Your support bought her TLC in the form of healing foods, veterinary care, and lots of attention. 8 months later, Gracie was healthy again and found her forever home. T-Bar couldn’t do this important work without you and your support. All donations go directly to the animals!

Gracie’s Story:

Description: Gracie was donated to TBAR and is emaciated. Her body registered a 1 on the Henneke Body Scale – as low as it gets. She’s only 2 years old and has been starved most of her short life. She has to be given food slowly because she doesn’t know that she will never go without food again. (picture taken at her previous home)  

Update: April 14, 2008: Gracie has put on a lot of weight and her winter coat is shedding out in chunks! It’s hard to catch her with her head up, she’s eating all the time. Thanks to your support, Gracie is getting the care and feed she needs to get back to health!

Update: October 1, 2008: Look at Gracie now! She’s beautiful, happy and healthy and ready for a forever home!

November 2008: Gracie and Valentino were adopted together! Thank you!

BrookeJul07Web Brooke had a bright future. A young, foundation quarter horse filly, with beautiful sorrel coloring; part of a herd of mares and watched over by several stallions – she had her  whole life ahead of her. But then the nightmare began. The grass was gone, the grain was gone, the hay was gone – for a long time. Brooke watched sadly as some of her fellow horses and cows died from lack of food. Only the strongest would survive. The old and the young were the most at risk; and she was one of them. One day, several people with badges came and brought food. It felt good to have a full belly again, even though it would be a long road for Brooke’s  body to look healthy again. With the help of a lot caring people – some with badges, some who rescue horses – Brooke  came to True Blue Animal Rescue. Now, at only 2.5-3 years old, Brooke has a bright future again. She’s halter broke, willing to trust, and ready to start under saddle. She would make a beautiful addition to your stable. buster2006

Mocha is doing beautifully, she’s in a stall with a  run  and she is coming up to us on her own now and letting us pet her she still flinches a little, when we first touch her but she LOVES attention, she likes to lick your hand, and she loves to have her face right next to yours, we got a halter on her and she seems much calmer now she didn’t even put up a fight when we put the halter on her. We just slowly introduced her to the halter and within a couple of days we got it on her. She just stood there while I cut her mane, she is such a good girl!!!! We’re working on leading her with the lead rope and desensitizing her back half now hopefully soon we can get ahold of that tail lol!! I have attached a few pictures so you can see her. Take Care, Gin’a

Breed:  Pony of the Americas (POA)
Registered Association: Reg #:  
Abilities: Can be ridden
ADOPTED – Thank You! Location: Brenham
Description: Riverdancer has had lots of groundwork and been ridden some with an experienced English rider. She is the alpha mare in the pasture  Riverdancer is cautious around people at first, but warms up and is then very sweet. She needs an experienced rider and will do great with children with some more training.. The little cloudy spot on her left eye is from an old injury, but it’s cosmetic – it doesn’t cause her any difficulty or vision problems.

Color: Red Roan
Breed:  
Abilities: She is halter broke, gentle on the ground. Rosey is rideable; and needs an experienced rider. 
ADOPTED – Thank You! Location: Washington
Description: Rosey’s life had taken a dire turn; and she didn’t know how much longer she could go on. She and 3 other horses shared a small pasture in the country that had long since run out of grass. Water was scarce, and there was no cover from the winter weather. When the owner did bring some food, Rosey and the 2 other horses let the baby horse eat first. Then the older boy horse, Chief, let the two girls – Rosey and Duchess – eat next; but it showed. He was skin and bones. Thankfully, the authorities seized Rosey and the other horses; and the court awarded them to True Blue Animal Rescue where they could be rehabilitated. Rosey is halter-broke, has fabulous ground manners and is probably rideable. A beautiful, 10 year old strawberry roan, Rosey is healthy again and ready for a loving, forever home.

Description: Once upon a time, a skinny mare was rescued from her sad situation and brought into True Blue Animal Rescue (TBAR) for rehabilitation. Turns out this poor girl was not only trying to sustain herself on the little food that was available, she was also trying to feed her baby. Fortunately, with the good food and TLC at TBAR, this mom had a healthy baby girl. Being the first baby born into TBAR, she was named True Blue. Fast forwarding to the present, True Blue has grown up into a beautiful three year old ready to start under saddle. She has deep brown, soft eyes that show her gentle, loving character. Her most stunning feature is the white heart on her forehead. If you’re looking for a young, beautiful horse to train, True Blue might be just right for you! She is current on her vaccinations and Coggins negative.
