Soon cold weathers and big rains and winds will come, and the horses will still be standing out there in the fields ... with no shelter or blankets ... with no feed, just acres of mud. They are the thousands of neglected, abused, and unwanted horses in today's American West.
Mywoofself has always loved tall neighing furriends. Since puppyhood, myself has met many rescued horses in California and Oregon.
It is good to be gettin' to know some of da most needy horses. It is comfortin' to learn about caring humans who rescue the horses or collect hay bank money to feed them.
Pawleeze document and report horse neglect, abuse, or starvation when you see it! You can contact a rescue organization for advice on how to do this properly. Also ask county sheriff's department and animal control the best way to get help for the horse who's in trouble.
Here are some good folks to know about:
Colorado Horsecare Foodbank
provides feed grants + emergency hay
Oregon Hay Bank
helps horses in Oregon + Northern California
Safe Haven Horse Rescue
horse rescue in Northern California
California Coastal Horse Rescue
horse rescue in Central California
California’s Thoroughbred Rehab/Rehoming
Equamore Horse Sanctuary

Wild Mustang advocacy in SE Oregon
natural horsemanship training
("starting" colts, not breaking them.)
