AN UPDATE ON OUR BUCKET FUND FILLY FOAL, SINCLAIR!






GOOD NEWS!

Even though she looked pretty bad in the original photos of her rescue… this girl has bounded back!  She spent 2 nights in the hospital and now is in the house of LRTC member, Brittany Denoyer.

You can tell, if you look at the photos… Sinclair is in a room of a house.  It looks like they have stacks of new flooring ready to go.  She has a window, blinds and a baby gate.  I’m sure this is the easiest way for all to keep solid eyes on her and to keep her temperature regulated during all of our freezing storms here on the West Coast.  (Sinclair was rescued off of the Virginia Range near Reno, Nevada.)

All donations are 100% tax deductible!  THANK YOU in advance!  We are MORE THAN HALFWAY TO OUR GOAL in helping her rescuers with her meds, milk replacer and hospital stay!

She didn’t have a suck reflex… but she drinks! Click image to watch a video of her drinking!

This morning… and easier standing session

THE NAME… WHY SINCLAIR?, I asked…

LRTC watches over 3000 wild horses on the Virginia Range and throughout the Nevada state.  I was told that during emergency situations, they tend to grab whatever name they can think of and don’t put a lot of thought into it, like they do for regular, uneventful listing and record keeping.

So… the rescue team trying to save this baby could only think of the gas station on the nearest corner, which was a Sinclair.

The Sinclair Dinosaur.

Honestly, I have been in love with that green dinosaur for years… so it is OK by me!

HERE SHE IS… CHECKING OUT HER WORLD.

Standing steadily on her third day of life. She’s drinking and behaving like a regular baby, although weak. So far, so good.

A glimpse of Rojo!






As you all know, Rojo is living his best life at Skydog Sanctuary.

I adopted Rojo in 2011 from the Carson City Prisoner Trained Mustang Adoption event.  Rojo lived very happily on our Grass Valley ranchette.  However, he was NOT interested in being ridden…   Although he was very polite, this boy wanted to be free.  When we moved to Paso Robles, Rojo and Remi were miserable.  This terrain isn’t suitable for wild horses.  Luckily, Skydog agreed to take my wild horses and let them live free on their 9600 acre ranch.

Rojo’s ad in the Prisoner Adoption pamphlet.

Remi, Sam and Rojo, my wild horses, on our Grass Valley Ranchette. As you can see, the terrain there was perfect for wild horses. They self trimmed, had ample cover and hills/valleys/streams to use and keep them fit. When we moved to Paso Robles, our terrain was not good for wild horses at all. Skydog Sanctuary agreed to take Remi, Sam and Rojo so they could live free on their 9600 acre ranch. Sam passed in 2018 and is buried at Skydog. Remi lives at the Skydog Malibu ranch. Rojo is on the Oregon Ranch, with Hunter.

YESTERDAY, SKYDOG INSTAGRAM POSTED ROJO!

Yesterday, Skydog Instagram posted a short video of Rojo grooming with Hunter, another mustang living at Skydog.

WHAT THE SKYDOG POST SAID:

skydogsanctuary
Mutual grooming starring Hunter and Rojo. One of the most common social behaviors of horses is mutual grooming. It is expressed by the lateral parallel body position of two horses that allows for nibbling along the back or withers of each horse. While this behavior can be considered grooming, it is also thought to facilitate pair-bonding and dominance structure between band mates. The horse seeks to form a ‘pair bond’ basically a buddy which it will allow within its personal space. The original purpose of this was presumably to permit grooming between the two horses to reduce parasites, as seen in many other species. This mutual grooming also serves to reaffirm the bond between horses and reduce social tension within the group. Mutual grooming behaviors are an important activity because they help create social bonds. According to recent studies, “feel good” hormones are increased in horses that undergo mutual grooming sessions, and horses also have preferred grooming partners. One of the most adorable things is that if I start to scratch on a horse they will often try and reciprocate and start nuzzling along my shoulders or back which feels like an honor. One of the things I miss the most right now is a good massage as we are all working hard but sadly my preferred mutual grooming partner husband is down in Malibu ?????? so I might go out later and see if I can convince Cassidy ? #skydoghunter #skydogrojo #mutualgrooming #passthesafeact #emptythepens #livewildstayfree #adoptblmmustangs #mustangsmatter #stoptheroundups #savedfromslaughter #killpenrescue #mustangsanctuary #teamskydog #bekind #keepyourassathome
