UPDATE ON OUR FEBRUARY BUCKET FUND HORSE – TROUBADOUR!






Our boy is all cleaned up and starting to gain weight.  Even so, you can see here how stunted and skinny he really is…

I’ve been told that he is very vocal with “the ladies” at the barn.  So, he will be gelded as soon as he is strong enough.

To read his original story, click here.

TROUBADOUR! – 2 weeks later!

Here he is – after a bath and lots of love and grooming.

Look how stunted he is for a 4 year-old… That patch on his shoulder is his new ID for his future should he be adopted.

Skinny and stunted – but very handsome and alert… our Troubadour! I was told that he is really liking the ladies in the barn. So, he will be gelded as soon as he is strong enough.

FREEZE BRAND – WHY HEART OF PHOENIX DOES THIS.

I asked about the brand and this was the response.  Seems smart!

When adopted out, we keep first rights on the horse, so it helps prevent an adopter from ever thinking they could sell outside of giving the horse back to us, but if they did, if the horse is advertised for sale, the brand is well known, so whether it be a sales ad, private purchase or auction, it will likely end up resulting in us being notified.  when it heals, it looks like this (this is a previous HOP horse that kind of reminds me of True named Alfie from years ago)

This is a different horse who was rescued by Heart of Phoenix a while back. This is what the freeze brand looks like.

JUST A REMINDER…

These photos show where Troubadour was living… before Heart of Phoenix saved him.

LACY AND RIO (January Bucket Fund) are in their NEW HOME! LOOK!






Hot off the presses; I just received this photo of (dirty from all the mud and rain) LACY AND RIO in their new Houston home!  Look how much room they have!  Fresh water, a barn and a huge paddock – and proper care.

Thank you, everyone, and Dr. Kris for making all of this happen!

(I will post more pics as they come in – the donkeys have all been adopted but not all have been picked up from Dr. Kris’ home.)

Lacy and Rio – dirty an happy in their new home.  Look at all the room they have!!
