DECEMBER BUCKET FUND: This Mighty Trio of starved horses BROKE OUT OF THEIR DEPRIVED HIDDEN HELL and found neighbors to alert the authorities – JUST IN TIME! Please help feed these very starved and deserving horses!






If these horses hadn’t decided to break down their fence, they would have surely been dead in a week or two – max.  Luckily for this Mighty Trio, they escaped their hidden hell and were able to reach neighbors – who called the authorities.

This is an approximately 20 year-old mare.  A ‘1’ on the scale.  Her entire spine is palpable.  She is covered in skin rot so she doesn’t have a winter coat – in OREGON!  I’m told she is very eager to EAT.  She was taped at 600 lbs.  Let’s help this girl!

This is the elder mare (approx 20) of the escapee group. She is very sweet and so ready to eat!

Very sucked in. This girl had little time left…

The Sheriff asked Strawberry Mountain Mustangs to take the horses TODAY – and they drove together to rescue these sweet faces.  All have horrible skin diseases, all are 1- 2 on the scale and all need extra slow -re-feeding, medical attention and emotional healing during the rainy and cold weather in Oregon now.

Please let us reward these horses for breaking free… and help Strawberry Mountain Mustangs in their efforts to right this wrong.  Taking on 3 new horses in winter who need extreme care is a burden – but I when I got the call to help, I couldn’t say NO.  I want to help, don’t you?!

All donations are 100% tax deductible!  Any amount adds up in the Bucket!  Thank you in advance.  I greatly appreciate this help for these lovely equines!

THE OTHERS – all in horrid shape!

The authorities believe the gelding was the one who initially broke free and went to the neighbors for help.    He is approximately 13-14 years old.  Body scale of 1+.  His entire spine is visible.  He taped at 700 lbs!  His coat is horrible, as well.  This is the quote from Strawberry Mountain Mustangs:

This is the savior of the group, the precocious personality who kept escaping until neighbors and a paper boy found him and started the ball rolling with the sheriff’s department. All three horses lived in a very remote area and without the help of this gelding – would have never been seen. 

The third horse, a mare, is in the best shape at a 2+ on the scale.  She is a very large girl and approximately 10 years old.  She taped at 900 lbs!  She also has scabs all over her body.

This mare is the youngest at approx 10 years. She is very large but a 2.5 on the scale. Taped at 900 lbs.

TONIGHT, THEY HAVE WARM MASH, SOOTHED TUMMIES AND A ROOF OVER THEIR HEADS.  Tomorrow, the body healing begins.

These photos just came in from SMM.  Stalls were made ready so that they could have roofs over their heads – and soon their skin treatment will begin.  For tonight, they have fresh shavings, a warm mash and comfort, for the first time in a very, very long time.

THANK YOU, FOR HELPING US HELP THEM!

This is the elder mare, gobbling up her mash in the comfort of a STALL with a roof and shavings!

This is the smart gelding that saved the group! He is eating his warm mash outside on fresh grass. His clean stall with fresh shavings awaits. Tonight, he will rest safely.

THANK YOU! Look at this face!!
