URGENT Horse rescue: Foals need homes 

I went to see my foals this evening and was stunned by the progress they have made thanks to Susan Thompson at Dunrovin Ranch. They have progressed from completely unsocialized furry foals to friendly, sweet foals who love to be brushed (2 of them do, anyway). The other 3 are well on their way. They are all curious and relaxed with people and dogs. Susan says that they all have very sweet temperaments, particularly since they were never handled until they were 8 mos old.

If you know anyone who would like to adopt a few more, there is a truck coming from Alberta to Arizona in 2 weeks and there are 5 spots left on the truck. The prices are very reasonable, and the rancher is making no profit. He is charging what it cost him to buy them at the auction (to prevent them from going to slaughter), and what it costs him to drive them down in his rig.

Go to and see the foals and grown horses that are left to be rescued. There are beautiful foals and many "feedlot mares" who are unlikely to find homes. Many of the adults are halter-broke. If they are not rescued, they may very well go to the auction and then to slaughter. It breaks my heart to even think about this, knowing how sweet my foals are.
