DreamCatchers has rescued hundreds of neglected, abused and starved horses over the years.
Below are just a few examples of the reason why we do what we do.
Buddy with Julie
"I love all the horse at the ranch. So many to enjoy, but one that is really touching to me is Buddy. Buddy came to us in very poor condition. He was left on the road side to basically die. When Buddy saw the trailer he ran right inside as if he was saying " Let's get out of here". He knew he was being rescued. So cool.
He was so thin and run down as you can see from the picture looking as "Why do I want to live". But due to all and the focus and care Julie and
everyone has giving Buddy he is just a fun horse and has the greatest personality as the picture shows how Julie gets him to stick his tongue out after receiving a treat. Just
too funny. Buddy will never leave the ranch. He is just part of it now, just happy and full of fun. Just a joy to have around.
Oh yes, you can see Buddy also loves his back scratched and you can see it on his face. Oh yeah, right there, oh yes, don't stop!"
Buddy Lived 4 years with us here at DreamCatchers. He crossed the Rainbow Bridge on November 23, 2015. He will always hold a special place in our hearts.
"Passion, her sister Rosie and her mother Shastina Rose were surrendered by an elderly couple who fancied themselves breeders. They had owned her sire too until he passed away. Because of the advanced age and failing health of the former owner, the horses were neglected, not starved but other aspects of their needs were not met.
The most notable of which were the lack of hoof care. In all her 5 years, Passion had never been haltered, never been taught to lead and never had her hooves trimmed.
As you can see from pictures below, her hooves were in terrible shape.
With the help of an awesome farrier, Sarah Graves, we took this girl from a completely unmanageable and lame to a fully functioning, intelligent, well behaved beautiful SOUND horse.
Picture of Passion Today
Because of the extraordinary collaborative effort of Sarah's Farrier work and Julie's commitment to the health and well-being of her animals, this is Passion today!
Her story and her
phenomenal recovery caught the attention of The Naturally Healthy Horse.com website and will be featured in February
