The horses on this page are either new arrivals, or those who have health problems and who are not currently available for adoption. Often these horses all have special needs and you can help by making a donation to help pay for vet care, farrier work, and food.
You can help us help rehabilitate one of these horses by becoming a sponsor. Just choose the horse you'd like to sponsor, and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll set you up! Sponsorships are $100 a month. These guys deserve your help!
7-24-2019 We were unsuccessful in our efforts to correct the many foot problems Angela endured, which were caused by human neglect. The decision was made to relieve Angela from her misery. She was cooperative and willing throughout her ordeal.
The owners cruelty case was dismissed by the judge.
We had Angela for a scant 3 1/2 months.
Dulce was rescued from a small pen where she had lived for years without any connection to other horses. Her feet were in horrible condition, so bad that she had to be sedated and laid down for the first trim. She literally could not stand on the other foot long enough for one foot to be trimmed.
Tio came to FCER as one of 3 horses surrendered to us through what we call a "law enforcement assisted owner surrender". Tio is the only survivor. Due to extreme owner neglect, the other 2 horses had to be euthanized at Intake. If matters could have been any worse, one of the fillies was a scant 2 years old. The other only 4. Tio is 27 years old, but he's sound and friendly. We think he'll make it!
At 11 years old, Dreamer had spent 8 of those years segregated from his herd because he challenged the herd stallion - also his father. He spend those years standing in his own manure, up to 3 feet deep in his pen. No handling, no intereaction. Dreamer has severe mental scarring in addtion to his physical ones.
Serifina entered FCER on 4-15-2019 as an owner surrender. She was over 250 lbs underweight! Her owner had given her to a young couple as a riding horse years before. One morning he walked out to the corrals to find Serafina had been returned - in this condition. The end of winter is a hard time for people to feed their horses, and he only had enough hay for the ones he had. So he called for help, and Serafina came to FCER.
