SAFER Sonoma Action For Equine Rescue www.saferhorse.com 707-824-9543
Dear Keepers of the Equine Flame:
We have a family of three Foxtrotters- owner was willing to surrender - that need our help. Stallion and mare were put together in a pen as yearlings. The mare was bred as a yearling in this pen. Not much worming or hoof care: And not nearly enough food. Now they have a starving yearling colt with them. Poor Mom has a chest barely a foot wide. She clearly gave all she had to her baby. And she is still nursing. What she is making milk from we do not know..... :<( We really are going to work hard to see that she makes it if she can. We will need two gelding procedures and lots of vet care and training. It's going to cost a bit to get them to where they can pass go. See more pics HERE. Its been just so unfair to them - the parents are barely 4 years old! Let's give them a chance! SAFER is willing to get take these three from rehab to great homes but we need your help. PLEASE make a tax deductable donation to the Foxtrotter Family.
ZINNIA AND we were at the auction today. Not very many people there. We brought home this beautiful and bewildered Sporthorse mare in excellent condition but with neglected feet. Another abandoned at stable case?? She too will need immediate care: vetting, shots, feet trimming and thrush medicine. She is just lovely to handle and probably very well trained. See her HERE. Please consider contributing to our "spontaneous Auction Actions" to help support the lives we save there. We are calling it "Back Into the Community."
Stable Acres has openings for Boarding
Correct Phone Number!
Even tho their website says they are full; since we are there due to Jodi's generosity - we happen to know they have a couple of openings. This is a fabulous place for a horse; all HUGE runs and paddocks and pastures. A round pen, an arena and wash rack. Located between Penngrove and Petaluma just off Old Adobe Rd. Calm and quiet - unless the horses are making the noise. Call Jodi at 707-540-3045.

A 17 year old 15 hand quarter appy. She has worked cows most of her life and is now wanting a trail job which she is VERY good at. See her HERE.
This 11 year old mare is 16 hands and very well trained as a dressage and equitation mount. She is stunning but not used to trails although she is fine with other horses around. Very sweet and compliant. See her HERE
Hope is a 6 yr old 15.3 QH mare who needs a trainer to become a nice saddle horse. She is
just plain beautiful, healthy and strong. She was in a neglect situation but all better now. See her HERE.
Rumba is 16 hands and 17 years. She is so very sweet and personable. Very easy keeper and easy to handle. Looks to be slightly unsound - training unknown. I love this horse - you will too. Is there not a gelding out there that needs a sweetie for company? Or another mare to keep company? See her HERE.
Wow! A sturdy 12 yr old 15 hand Arab mare with saddle training on her too. Vet checked sound and healthy. Sweet and sensible. See her HERE.
Our ability to do our work depends on getting the word out - please send these emails along and encourage others to join up. SAFER DOES NOT SHARE THIS LIST WITH ANYONE. We do however make announcements for others that may be of interest or helpful to our NorthBay horse community.
