Sable is a 3 year old filly original from the Spring Creek Herd in Disappointment Valley near Cortez, Colo. She had been adopted along with 2 others which were all later found starving. The BLM repossessed the horses and we took in Sable, as she was in the worst condition. She is doing well and adjusting to domestic life.
FCER is an all volunteer non-profit group dedicated to the rescue of horses, burros, and mules: their rehabilitation (both physically and mentally), and their adoption into good, loving homes. We will assist wherever, whenever we can, to help horses in need.
Located just outside Aztec, in the Four Corners area of New Mexico,we are licensed by the State of New Mexico, and follow the guidelines for rescues as set forth by the AAEP (American Association of Equine Practitioners). This guide can be viewed by clicking on the Forms icon, then AAEP.
The 2015 calendar is here! A great Christmas present for that hard to buy for person on your list! Each month features a different horse that is either in FCER now or has been adopted from FCER. See some great photos of rescue horses at work and play!
Calendars are $16 each including shipping. We can ship as a gift to a different address if you'd like.
The first of October saw the skies turn dark and over an inch of rain fell in 24 hours. In a place where our annual rainfall is 12 inches, this is indeed a flood. Streets in town were shut down, traffic lights were out and cars stalled everywhere. Here at the rescue our poor horses thought perhaps they should have been born with webbed feet. Mud and muck are not friends of the horse. Foot problems abound and tempers run short in the barnyard. The long range weather indicates a wet winter for us. So efforts are underway to make this winter as comfortable and healthy as we can for our horses. Work is on trying to get additional shelters ordered and put up before the mud hits. We're cross fencing pens so no horse that is the "low man" in the herd is left out in the elements. And hoping the weatherman is wrong.
