Wildfire aka teddy
Wildfire is now named Teddy and was adopted by the rescue's president. You can see his leg x-ray in the slideshow, but we found that at some point his leg was broken and fused above the joint. While he is pasture sound, we wanted to be sure he would never be ridden again and his comfort could be closely monitored. He is an amazing soul and it breaks our hearts he endured this injury with what appears to have been little or no care to help it heal correctly.
Pedro has come so far since he was adopted. Under local trainer Jimmy White, he is blossoming into a confident, well behaved horse for his girls. We can't wait to see what he does in the future.
Phoenix is the son of Fiona and Moose. He has been lucky to grow up with no fear of neglect or abuse and is thriving and learning to be a gentleman with his new family.
Major Bingo. Our hardest case to date. His spirit was broken, his will to live gone. We had to lift him with a tractor every couple of days, sometimes every day, for over a month. We fought so hard to make him live. And live he did. Many of these photos are hard to look at. He was adopted by an amazing family with a fierce little lady who loves him dearly. His new name is Jackpot, because his family feels like they hit the jackpot in finding him. We think it is the other way around!
Scout, sire to Trax, Blaze, and Bones. This beautiful boy waited almost an entire year to find his person. We never understood why, just look at him! He deserves nothing but happiness for the rest of his days.
The middle brother of Bones and Trax, his mother is Leslie. He was in better condition than little Bones, but not by much. He was the most rambunctious of the bunch, not tying well, cutting a somersault when given shots...But with time, love, and patience he was ready to learn and became the easiest colt we have worked with to date. He now has a new home and a little girl to call his own.
Bones is the son of Dixie. He was extremely emaciated and dehydrated, and we weren’t sure he was going to make it. Once he began to get consistent nutrition, he began to grow! He is a little over a year old in these pictures but was the size of a 6 month old colt, if that. He now resides in Alabama with his new family.
Moose and Fiona were seized on February 28, 2018. They were taken from a property where we were too late to save their pasturemate. A 5 year old stud, he really came into his own when he began to feel better. If you look at his face in the pictures, you can see him grow from a boy to a man. Gelding settled him a good bit, but he still has the energy and spark of a young sassy boy. After he was rehabilitated he spent time with local trainer Jimmy White before he was adopted.
Fiona came in with Moose. Phoenix her foal, was born a few months after her rescue. She has some issues with her hips and cannot be ridden. She has not been adopted, but she is living a life of luxury.

Leslie and Dixie came fron the same seizure case in July of 2018. Leslie was later adopted by her fosters. Dixie took longer to gain weight and struggled to find a home. Leslie’s family decided to come ride Dixie and give her a shot. As you can see in the final pictures in the slideshow, these girls are living their happily ever after together!
Nakoma has been through three seizures for neglect in her 7-9 years of life. When we seized her, along with 16 other horses and donkeys, we were determined it would be the last time. We found her a forever home where she will never want for anything ever again.
Beauregard came to us as a shelter transfer. Heartworm positive, recent tail amputation because of happy tail, and extremely emaciated. Due to being hungry for so long, he thought he was always hungry. He would eat himself sick, and keep on going if allowed. After he was rehabilitated, he caught a ride to California where he is in a loving home.
Klementine was kept at a foreclosed property. She was "old," and that was the excuse given for her condition. Age is a factor, but never an excuse for an animal to look like this. She, like other senior animals, needed some extra calories and care. She is now the companion to another senior horse with round the clock care at the same farm as Nakoma.
When Crixus came to us we weren't sure he would survive. He had been attacked by his kennelmates, and had hidden in the doghouse where his injuries were not immediately seen. When he was found, infection had set in, so badly you couldn't help but gag to be near him. We thought he might lose his leg and his tail. It took a while, but he healed completely. He went to California to a partnering rescue there and was adopted.
If you have been to our About page, you know Legend was one of the first horses we took in, and one of the worst we have seen. He came from a bad part of town, inside the city limits. He is living the dream, and we get frequent updates from his adopter.
Jagger was seized along with Sundance, who is still available for adoption, from a neglectful situation. He has fully recovered and has been adopted
