We rescued 3 more foals. These babies were orphaned and injured. We drove the 4 hours one way to get them. We are so thankful for Paul, Glenda and Cash for their incredible kindness in saving these babies and keeping them safe until we could arrive.
We loaded the first baby. Paul was so overcome with sorrow that he just hugged this colt and cried.
We were able to get all 3 babies loaded in our hay cushioned trailer. They were so exhausted.
We drove the 4 hours to our ranch and arrived around 2:30 a.m. We unloaded 2 of the babies, but the Wobbly Little Girl needed to go to the vet immediately. Deb and Terry were giving her milk replacement in the trailer.

This past weekend our Wildhorse Wish came true.
We rescued Frankie "Blue Eyes" Kasper in 2018. He was born with a cleft palate, a hernia and some blindness. Thanks to our wonderful Volunteers and Donors, we raised the funds to have all his surgeries.
We knew that Frankie would always have special needs for his environment due to his blindness, inability to be in the sun and all the quirky things that go along with being "Frankie." Because of all that, Frankie was designated a Wildhorse Sanctuary Animal. This means that Frankie remains a permanent resident on the ranch.
Today, Wildhorse had the incredible honor to host Lisa Groves, her husband Paul, and daughter Maddy. Lisa’s mother, Andrea Mary Groves, was a Wildhorse Volunteer who passed away suddenly. Lisa’s father David, would drive her mother to her Volunteer Shift and lovingly looked on as she helped take care of our Wildhorse Animal Family.
Lisa and her family honored her parents' memory today by hanging a memorial plaque on our Welcome Cottage. While Lisa and her family had the entire ranch to choose the perfect spot to hang the memorial, they settled on the Welcome Cottage. This small building is at the forefront of the ranch and we couldn’t agree more with their choice. The Welcome ......
Baby Gus, a wild little baby horse who we rescued, was very sick and close to death on 5/4/2020 (the day he was born).
Thanks to the wonderful donations and support from our incredible supporters, volunteers and the amazing Baby Horse Transport Team!, Gus was finally able to romp and play in the side corral at Wildhorse Ranch Rescue. He was supervised by several Colt Care Team Members. He had so much fun! Thank you to everyone for giving him this fun start in life. We are forever grateful on behalf of Baby Gus.
