Thank you to the Gunning family for providing permanent retirement to two of our special horses.

“Hit the Bottle” Top Hit (USA) - Ayanna (USA) (In Excess (IRE) aka Jack came to us from thoroughbred trainers Briean Courtney and Ryan Bratcher back in September. As a 6 year old, he was retired from racing due to concerns of a potential neurological condition.
Upon having him evaluated by our veterinarian, it was found Jack had a condition called Shivers. Typically difficult to detect and can be confused with stringhalt. A great article which describes the symptoms and progression of the disease can be found here: http://www.thehorse.com/articles/19316/shivers-in-the-horse-a-review.s.

Jack has currently has more good days than bad, however we felt a life of being spoiled with treats and sunny days, turned out to pasture would be in his best interest. His buddy Hank(as you all may remember, we regained possession of him late this summer thanks to the guidance of the Pinal County Sheriffs and The Arizona Department of Agriculture) provides him comfort and The Gunning’s daughter a walk/trot buddy.

We believe every adoption doesn’t necessarily mean or require a second riding career, but sometimes simply a soft place to land. We provide proper education on all of our adoptive horses long term needs and we remain actively involved in all of our horses even after placement.

A horse visited our Padstow Heights Home today! Many of our residents loved reminiscing about horses they used to own and ride. The smiles say it all :)

Today, after being at our local racetrack and hearing of such heartbreak and loss in California...we didn’t have to think twice about sending supplies for fellow horse owners who need help. Many people have lost everything, several horses have perished and more horses remain missing.

We sent horse feed, cat food, dog food, halters, blankets, and a few buckets with Heather McGee for her to transport to those in need in California. She is one of a small group of horsewomen here in Arizona, who are loading up trucks and trailers with supplies and heading out first thing in the morning.

Thank you all for your compassion and helping those have suffered such devastating losses due to the wildfires. Sometimes the worst situation brings out the best in us and others. 🙏🏻
