What to do about ticks?

April 20, 2017 11:00 am By:Connie Willard 0Comments


We recently had a horse come into our rescue with hundreds of ticks. This prompted us to do some research about the best approach to eliminate them. There are many recommendations and we do not discredit any of them. This is just what we did and what worked for this specific horse.

If the ticks are a few, they can be removed by hand. It is recommended not to twist them, but rather to use firm, straight backward pressure. Twisting can result in the head remaining in the horse, causing infection and disease. A tick comb may be quite useful.

Adam was adopted from here back in 09 after we brought him back to health. He was rescued from a dreadful place in the north county along with 4 others. He went to his new home and was ridden on a ranch and has had good care. He was recently returned because he needed surgery.

We had the surgery done, he has recovered well and is now in need of a forever home.

A forever home is one where you will be responsible for his care for his lifetime. If he needs a medical procedure it is your job to do that, not ours. Financially this has put us in a very tight spot, but the kind actions of a lady called Linn has taken away that pressure. Thank you Linn.

Panels or round pen wanted for flying P.S. trainer.

February 27, 2012 5:11 pm By:Connie Willard 0Comments


We are in dire need of panels or a 60 ft round pen. We had one, but the girls at the shelter had so many horses in last year they needed panels for holding pens. They borrowed mine and won’t give it back. How rude is that? But I love them all so they will get away with it just this once.

I was lunging and training with a long line, then Auggie came. The 1650lb Clydesdale cross thug with the bulldozer attitude…and he yanked me off my feet and I found out what it felt like to fly…awesome. Landing… not so hot, but flying is fun. I had better not try him again until I Read More >

Bruising in all four feet of Pepper.

Baby, losing weight with so much good food.

Pepper stayed down so long we had to bring him water.

His heated water tank was only 10 feet away but he could not get to it.

Ponies leave for Idaho.

December 29, 2011 7:44 pm By:Connie Willard 0Comments


It was a sad day when our little Johnny left us for a new home. We never thought he would be adopted because of his blindness, but when Andre and Leanne came here, little Johnny picked them. It was amazing to watch, he was so resistant to peoples touch, but these two were a magnet for him. One of those things that is meant to be, so we let him and the little wild thing go to their new home in Boise.

All dressed up for the ride to Idaho, looking absolutely angelic.
