Rescue Ranch and Foundation, Inc.
HERSHEL & SLO MO
Rescued 1991: Hershel & Slo Mo were captured by the BLM in 1979 and worked both on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and in the mountains above Kingman, Arizona, for many years. Upon retirement, Steve adopted the pair and they have been living a wonderful life of retirement just “horse’n around.”
Rescued March 2007: Trooper was left on a mountainside to fend for himself at and advanced age. His skeletal body was covered with long hair and cockleburs. This kind gelding lived with us for 2 happy years before dying March 8, 2009. He was 34 years old!
Rescued January 2008: Donkey came from a good home in Tucson. He had a lot to say and his owner complained that he sang off key. He’s kind of shy and loves mountain life.
Rescued January 2010: Tony, a Spotted Saddle
Horse, was employed as a therapeutic riding horse for several years. This beautiful gaited gelding needed a change in his routine and is enjoying time in the pasture.
Relieved of his pain July 2010: Relampago had a hideous cancer growth on his penis. His pain was enormous. Never haltered or handled the most humane outcome for him was to be euthanized. This beautiful and brave soul met his Maker in July of 2010.
Died at a very old age
on September 5, 2010.
Arrived January 2011: After spending several summers at “Camp Horse’n Around,” Charlie joined our family. His breed is unknown but we suspect that he’s predominantly wooly mammoth. Charlie is big enough to carry an adult and sweet enough to take care of a child. He is a great “heeling horse” and a good ride.
Rescued February 2011: Bo came from the Payson area with his friends Diamond & Zeus. His thin body was covered with a terrific winter coat. Bo is now healthy and strong and ready for the trails.
Arrived April 2011: Peaches is a quarter horse mare that came from a caring family. They bought her at auction for the kids. Peaches is as playful as she is gentle and promptly found herself stuck upside down in the water trough where she injured her shoulder. We are hopeful that the movement of pasture life coupled with some body work will solve her shoulder issue so she can go to a forever home.
Died at "40 something"
in March 2012.
