The story of Pacifica, who we saved last month!






Last month, we rescued a mare – now named Pacifica.

The last hour before they were to ship the next morning, we received this photo from ASIAB.  The arrow pointed to a mare that they wanted to save in addition to the 42 they had already saved.

The photo was so sad to me because all of the horses pictured, were going to ship.  If I had won the lottery (or any of you, I imagine), I would have taken them all and housed them.  But, I haven’t won the lottery – yet.  So this sad and never-ending pipeline doesn’t end – especially with hay prices what they are in the West (I pay over $35 per bale of grass hay).

Since we cannot save them all, at least we can be happy about the ones we can save.  And, you had donated enough to the Keep Them Off the Truck Fund for us to save Pacifica ($780).  THANK YOU!

This is the photo I received of the horses left in the kill pen.

HER STORY

We didn’t know much about her except that she was skinny but healthy and in her teens.  The vet said he had no idea why she was in the kill pen… Pacifica is mannered and calm and healthy.  Manners really help with adoptions, for sure.  ASAIB feels that Pacifica will be an adoption candidate very soon!

Here she is, in quarantine just a day (and a bath) after being in the kill pen. She looks great!

Here she is after she arrived at All Seated In a Barn. She had a hoof trim and that’s it! This girl is healthy and ALIVE!

AN UPDATE FROM ASIAB TODAY!

“She is doing really good! She Is gaining weight, she actually has a pen by herself to help her gain more weight since being a thoroughbred they tend to need more feed. She is incredibly kind and gentle and will get ridden for the first time next week when Brian is here.”

Very pretty girl with an awesome fly mask!

My friend had two more BABIES!






My friend is a Morgan breeder in Vermont.  His facility is called East of Equinox Farm and they have the old style Morgan that I love.  Many years ago, I toured their place and purchased two colts.  One grew into a lovely black stallion (which I sold because I wasn’t set up for stallions) and the other grew into my most favorite riding horse ever –  Aladdin.

Me on the trail with Aladdin.

My best guy when he was showing as a 2 year-old.

IN A WHILE…

In a while, when I’m back in Grass Valley, I might be in the market for a baby.  Since I have no mares anymore, I will need to purchase a baby.  And, for me, why not go back to the well?  I have only purchased from two Morgan breeders.   Kohler Farms (where I bought Mama Tess) and East of Equinox.

Since I have enough of Mama Tess’ breeding, I am strongly considering East of Equinox again.  Hence, I’m following all the births.  And, of course, they are sending me texts with photos – as it is happening – so the hook is being set nicely!

This is a 5 month old colt from last year’s crop at East of Equinox. He won the NY Breeder’s Sweepstakes.  He is related to my Aladdin.

 

LAST WEEK, I SHOWED YOU THIS GUY…

Just born

24 hours later…

And now two two more East of Equinox MORGAN BABIES were born!

This filly was born!

And then this black colt!

Loook at that face!

A great shot of the filly and the black colt, napping. These two mares know each other well.

Then they put all three mares together and this is what happened! Such a great shot!  These babies will be a pack of craziness very soon!
