Justice & Jaden Need Our Support
Justice: Starved and terrified is the best description for this mare. From the moment we laid eyes upon her skeletal frame we knew she had been severely neglected. Looking at her foal beaten up and injured, it was clear some kind of trauma had occurred. We discovered a stallion had gotten to her in her first foal heat, and she was now starved, nursing a battered filly and...pregnant. Wide-eyed and trembling, Justice didn't know fate had smiled upon her. She had been rescued and spared a horrific death.
The support we receive from folks like yourself help us provide the special long term care and time needed that a damaged mare like Justice needs. We are so appreciative on the ongoing interest as we bring our mares back from the brink of death.
Getting to work right away we provided fresh hay water and quiet pastures to rest in. The filly Saffy is thriving. Justice aborted her foal as the stress was all to much for one life. She is slowly settling in, but this will be a long road for this mare. Your support ensures we can give her all the care she needs.
Jaden arrived starved as well, but thank goodness she was not pregnant. She too is extremely cautious and wary of humans.
The green tag indicates slaughter. It is her only identification until death. But we pulled her and set her on her way to rehabilitation and recovery. We understand it is a slow walk out of the depths of grief. We have seen the transformation as healing and acceptance begin to take place. Jaden is beginning to take hay from us, allowing us in ever-so-slowly. Her colt Echo is doing wonderfully settling in with the other foals. Again, time is a critical element in the healing. We often hear good trainers state "It takes as long as it takes." We couldn't agree more.
We are committed to providing Jaden all the time she needs. We can do this kind of work because of you. Every single donation, 100% of it goes to our horses and their care.
