Brownie is a sweet, young colt that was picked up by animal control officials in Colbert County. He was very underweight and suffered with a severe case of rain scald and cracked hooves. Fortunately, he was taken in by a loving foster home that is providing him with lots of TLC. He has a long way to go but is already looking and feeling much better.
Sissy is a 10 year old mini mare with lots of personality. She was very distrustful of people when she first arrived at SRER's quarantine shelter but has made huge progress. She was recently adopted along with her best friend Bud. They will spend the rest of their days together being cared for by loving adopters who give them tons of attention.
Naomi was rescued by SRER after being picked up as a stray by animal control. We are not sure how long she had been wandering the roads when she was found. Upon initial examination, it appeared that she had been nibbling on rocks and dirt based on the condition of her teeth. She also had several lacerations on her body and thrush. After being fully rehabilitated, Naomi went to live in a beautiful pasture with a big red barn. It was truly a fairly tale ending for this deserving mare.
Breaking news! Joe is being adopted by a wonderful family. We sure will miss this big handsome guy. Joe, a 14 year old gelding, was brought to SRER by the Sheriff's Department after he was seized in an animal cruelty case. In additon to being very underweight, he had several abrasions that required treatment and was infested with parasites. We are pleased to report that Joe has made good progress over the past few months and is ready to be adopted into his forever home. He is a very sweet boy who leads, loads, stands tied. He also shows good manners with the farrier.
More great news! Flash has been adopted on Saturday, July 13th and is now happily at his forever home. Flash, a 12 year old stallion (now gelding), came to SRER after being seized by the Sheriff's Department. Law enforcement officials report that he had absolutely nothing to eat. He was so hungry that he had been reaching over the fence to eat the bark and limbs off of trees on a neighbor's property. Fortunately, those sad and painful days are behind him. Flash is now a very healthy and happy gelding who is ready for adoption. He leads, loads, stands tied and is very good while having his hooves trimmed.
Hank, a 20 year old sorrel gelding, arrived at SRER after the Sherriff's Department responded to complaints that he was being starved. Upon arrival, his ribs and spine were quite pronounced. We are pleased to report that he has gained a significant amount of weight and is now ready for adoption. He leads, stands tied, loads and is well-behaved while having his hooves trimmed. We suspect he has had some training and probably some experience with riding. He loves to be rubbed and groomed.
Waylon, a young stallion (now gelding), was brought to SRER by the Sheriff's Department following an animal cruelty investigation. He was near death upon arrival due to his emaciated condition. Waylon is now a beautiful, healthy gelding who is ready for adoption. He is almost 3 years old and is over 15 hands tall. He is easy to handle but does need an experienced horse person who is patient and willing to put in the time to train him for riding. Waylon leads, stands tied and loads. He also stands to have his hooves trimmed.
