Rescued CRR horse gives birth to colt

By Kandra Kent

CROOKED RIVER RANCH, Ore. – A colt was born at a Terrebonne horse-rescue operation early Thursday morning, just hours after its mother was seized from what authorities call a neglectful owner.

The mare was one of four horses taken into custody by Mustangs to the Rescue, an equine shelter.

“He appears very healthy. He is small, and that’s really typical of a mare that is struggling to get enough nutrients,” said the organization’s spokeswoman, Kate Beardsley. “They give it all to the baby. The baby comes out healthy, but small.” (read more)

Are we movin’? – maybe yes, maybe no – but we’re lookin’!

As many of you know Sky Hawk Ranch (SHR), current home to Mustangs to the Rescue, is for sale. Good offers for Sky Hawk Ranch are pouring in and it’s just a matter of time before it sells.

indexWhile the TBD new owners may want us to stay, one offer requires the immediate departure of all horses & people. Our agreement with SHR allows for a sixty day vacate notice, so to be on the safe side we are looking for a new base of operations.

We’ve known this was a possibility since the beginning and while we will continue to care for the horses in our charge, we will look for a new home.

We ask that you keep your eyes and ears open and if you see, or hear, of any potential new location for MTTR, please have the interested person contact us.

Thank you!
