Bubbles was rescued in Dec - 2016
When we went to bail the mini donkeys from the kill lot, this skinny, grey gelding walked straight up to our trailer, pass the gates, disregarding the commands of the kill lot employees. He was intent that this was his ride out of there. We stood there staring as this old guy with crumbled ears from frostbite waited patiently for the group of mini donkeys to catch up so he could jump on the "freedom trailer" out of there. There was just no way we could leave him behind!
Thanks to your overwhelming generosity, we had just enough money left over to pay his bail. This sweet, old man won our hearts the minute he decided it was the perfect time to escape the kill lot. It seems that he thought nobody would notice him escaping if he simply mixed in with the mini donkeys!
Bubbles is now safe here at Becky's Hope where he continues to hang out with his mini donkey cohorts. If you need a gift for the animal lover in your life...consider giving them the gift of love by sponsoring Bubbles in their name. He has lots of love to give! #Bubbles
Big ole Duke is a Belgium mix gelding. He is approximately 17 hands in height and around 13 years of age. He was surrendered to us by a couple who had fallen on bad times and could no longer afford to keep him. When we went to pick him up, we were saddened to find him living alone in an unkempt pasture. Other than that, we don’t know a lot about his background. Though Duke has a calm demeanor and enjoys a little loving over the fence, he is slightly distrusting. We’re working with him on that though and think he’ll eventually come around. He has befriended several yearlings – Cisco, Angel and Shaw, and also is becoming friendly with a senior thoroughbred named Chance. They all enjoy their days together frolicking about in their pasture. Duke is very devoted to his “posse” of friends. Won't you please consider sponsoring Duke and help support him? Or if you prefer, make a donation towards his care and just let us know it's for Duke.
Brie is a 14 year old Rocky Mountain horse. She is almost totally blind and suffers from a condition called heaves. Having heaves is similar to a human having asthma. Her airways swell up and she has trouble breathing. Because of this she takes medicine every day, twice a day. Fortunately, she doesn't let all this get in her way too much – she roams the pasture and lives pretty much a normal horse life. You can see here from the photos what a beauty she is.
Brie’s medications alone cost around $1,000 monthly. She is hand fed daily, rain or shine, to make sure she gets all her medications. The compassion shown to Brie has given her the opportunity to live the most normal life possible. Won't you please consider sponsoring Brie and help support her?
Muffit is a 20+ year old BLM caught mustang. In 2013 we received a call about a small horse that was down in a field by herself. When we arrived at the scene this mare was discovered to be foundering in all four hooves and had an untreated abscess in a rear hoof as well. She was in tremendous pain, but managed to remain gentle throughout the entire rescue operation.
She was immediately seen by a veterinarian for all of her ailments and treated accordingly. She has hoof deformities in both of her rear hooves and as a result, she is regularly seen by a Master Equine Podiatrist. She and Becky have an extremely close bond.
Muffit is part of our Sanctuary family.
