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 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.
At 8 a.m. Monday morning (7-18-16) the phone rang. A family had found a foal orphaned over the weekend. They found the Mom, dead. By Monday the baby was in serious trouble. Could we help? FCER volunteers Debbie, Nora and Kristin met them half way, about 30 miles out. And loaded a non responsive cold baby into the trailer. We covered her with blankets and headed for Animal Haven Clinic in Farmington, calling ahead so they would be prepared for this comatose baby. Upon arrival Dr. Bracken didn't think the filly, now named Nina, had much of a chance, but we all agreed to give her the support we could. And if Nina would fight, we'd support her. It was pretty touch and go for 4 days, but she grew stronger. And she made it. We are hopeful that we will be able to bring her home to FCER tomorrow, July 27th.
