Midnight is the perfect time to introduce halters and fly masks to the babies!

These days, no one really knows what time it is at Wildhorse. With feeding shifts around the clock, we all feel like parents to newborn human babies X100 and we’re loving every precious minute with these two.

Laurie, our Herd Health Director was on Midnight Feeding Duty and used the opportunity to try halters and fly masks on Gus and Jack to get them used to the feeling of them on their bodies.


Both were very tolerant and didn’t seem to mind wearing them a bit! And we must say, she sure picked perfect colors for these handsome fellas.

Baby Jack went back to the hospital on 5/27/2020 to have his cast removed. He's too small for a regular halter, so Deb and Terry, our directors, purchased a dog halter for him. It's working perfectly!

168 feed shifts, 12 per day, 2 hour increments for 14 days. Countless vital checks, medications, bandage changes, reporting, cool sponge baths and lots of TLC. That’s just some of what our amazing Volunteers have accomplished since the rescue of Gus and Jack.
These individuals are volunteering around the clock, ensuring that the babies have the nourishment, care and safety that they so need to grow into strong and healthy boys!
It has been an incredible journey for Wildhorse, and it’s just getting started!

Deb, one of our Directors and Colt Care Team Members, was teaching Gus some manners. Simon was fixing Gus' gate because he'd figured out to push it open. Gus reacted in protest.

"Hey Simon! Stop closing my gate!"

Deb said, "Gus, you are not allowed to bite Simon. That is very bad manners!" 


"Okay, I will take off his hat!" 

Deb -  "Gus, No. You are not being a good boy."

Sonora is such a helper these days!!

Construction Manager, Simon, was washing up in the sink and Sonora thought she’d “assist.”

Sonora is a beautiful, young rescue mare, mom to Mojave and Cimarron (both have been adopted). She’s easy to halter, friendly and is looking for her forever herd. She also does dishes ??!!
