In Loving Memory of Those Horses Who Have Passed...
Age: 14 yrs old
Annie was an 11 Year Old Quarter-Horse. She was lovely, healthy and a well trained chestnut mare. Another victim of the economy. Her owner lost her job and now is also battling a heart condition. Annie had 3 smooth gaits, great ground manners, trailers and loves adventures and trail obstacle courses to decode. Fun, affectionate. smart and an easy keeper!
Annie's’ story...An Honorable Rescue....Imagine having been a horsewoman all your life and never been without a horse at your side. Then life sends you some tough blows. You lose your job of many years, heart problems begin and other medical challenges surface. You can't afford your beloved horse-partner and good companion. Knowing the cruel fate that would happen to your horse at the auction buyers, you choose to put your hand up for help. So this owner calls a local rescue to help care for her horse and responsibly re-homes her equine partner.
Now that's what we call a true blue Horsewoman. This owner put the needs of the horse first and responsibly took action so that her horse could achieve the best possible outcome.
Too many times rescue groups are called out when the horse is already starving, neglected, abused or abandoned—and the horse needs critical care and many times, doesn't make it. It's too late. Instead, Annie came into our arms in great health. A beautiful little quarter-horse chestnut mare...responsibly placed into capable hands. We are most grateful and salute Annie’s owner for honoring her horse, her partner, her friend...first and foremost…before her own medical condition became untenable. She is a real horsewoman and we acknowledge and salute her for her courage and wisdom in this difficult decision. This is a GOOD story.
In the summer of 2016, our dear Annie couldn't recover from a serious bout of colic and she passed on over the rainbow bridge. Thank you for all you gave us. We love you.
