Skydog Sanctuary sent a video of ROJO RUNNING FREE AND KICKING AS HE PASSED THE CAMERA! So joyful in his freedom. Thank you, Skydog.

Skydog Sanctuary was kind enough to video Rojo yesterday as he ran and played past the camera.

It was so gracious of Skydog to send the short piece to me.  Ahhhh… to see my boy, fat, shiny and sassy is AMAZING.  Thank you, Skydog Sanctuary, for giving Rojo his freedom.  I am forever grateful.

His black buddy is Jimmy (a rescued riding mustang) and the two Chestnut mares were rescued from Buddy’s herd – they were found in long term BLM holding pens (hence their tattoo numbers).

NAME THAT BABY! Goliath and Red Lady had a magnificent COLT!

Over the weekend, Goliath and Red Lady had a splendid foal!  A colt!  He is glorious and strong – and so coordinated for a tiny foal!  I am amazed at his baby skills!

HOWEVER, the really fun part is that Skydog Sanctuary needs donations for hay and all the other needs of 70+ horses… So they are offering a donor contest for naming rights to this new foal!  If you donate or purchase anything from their shop, Skydog will put your name choice into the hat – to be chosen by random draw!

He is so alert – and look at his muscling already!

Red Lady and baby colt!


But the bittersweet news right now, is that HARDLY ANY people have donated to the Skydog Sanctuary hay fund (tax time- ugh), so there is a HUGE chance that YOUR CHOICE MAY WIN!

How great would THAT be?!  You naming the very precious and last foal of amazing wild mustang Goliath?!  Wow!  What an honor!

What a strong baby!!

HERE IS THE MESSAGE FROM SKYDOG ON THE MANY WAYS TO ENTER THIS CONTEST (for a great cause – supporting Skydog Sanctuary!)

From Skydog:

Hello from a cold and clear Oregon Skydog this morning. Alright we need to name this foal and we need to raise some money for our Hay Fund !!! I would love to be able to pick a winning name in the next couple of days. To have the chance of choosing Red Lady and Goliath’s foal’s name you just have to go to our website at and hit donate. You can then either write the name you choose on your donation or come back and comment the name and say that you donated. So far we have had only 15 donations so we have 15 names to choose from. You can donate anything from one dollar upwards to have a chance to have your name chosen. ??????

If you would like some more creative ways to donate to our hay drive you can also go to the store on our website and buy a calendar, hat or t-shirt then come back and tell us your favorite name

You can also use our Amazon Smile link when you purchase anything from Amazon and a small percentage will go to Skydog. If you make us the charity of your choice you can also come back and let us know that and throw your name choice in the hat

Right now neither Red Lady or the new baby has a sponsor and neither do most of the horses at Skydog Oregon. We do better with the horses in Malibu because so many of our incredible volunteers sponsor them but let’s show some love for the horses up here. If you sponsor Red Lady or her baby you can even visit them and get a tour from one of our amazing ranch hands or ME. You will also get weekly photographs or videos to your phone of the horse you sponsor that nobody else will have and a certificate of sponsorship as well. All of that for only 100 dollars a month every penny of which will go to feeding and caring for your horse. To sponsor any of our Skydog rescued mustangs go to

You can also donate by starting a Facebook Fundraiser of your own for Skydog Sanctuary to help us care for the horses and rescue more – just look at your Facebook settings and go to Start A Fundraiser and just name us as your charity/non-profit ??????

If you would like to send your donation by check the address is Skydog Sanctuary, 23823 Malibu Road, Suite 50 Box 357, Malibu, Ca 90265 and on the website you can donate through paypal or

I was out this morning feeding our beautiful family and it was so adorable as baby had laid down in mama’s hay and was all snuggled up looking as adorable as he could be. These horses truly take your breath away when you see them up close and personal and it continues to be such a marvelous miraculous sight. Family. The way it should be.


Here is the link to watch a video of this very new baby!
