Many of you may have read the article in the Fresno Bee on Sunday about yet another horse neglect investigation. We have 5 of the horses we were able to rescue from that situation and they need your help! We still need to build more stalls and of course we need hay! We have tremendous appreciation for the wonderful donors that have come to support us with the rehabilitation of all of our horses so far. Thank you! The other area we really need help in is in finding homes for those horses now available for adoption. This helps in so many ways: it sends horses to loving homes, opens space for those needing rehabilitation, increases individual care time, keeps our Officers and staff going with hope and gives us more happy beginnings to share with you. Please share our individual spot lights of each of our special horses…meet Jason
Jason (ID#300146) is approximately 4 years old and is nice young man. He is a member of what we commonly refer to as the “Ex-Stud Club” as he was gelded, along with several others, at the shelter on 2-24-12. He is very friendly and willing to please. As with all the horses from the Clovis investigation, he hadn’t had much previous handling. When he first arrived he didn’t tolerate much but as time has passed he’s become more socialized and looks forward to and seeks out attention. He has improved immensly since his arrival and is willing to try out new things. Jason will allow you to halter him but has not learned how to lead. He enjoys being brushed now. He appears to be the type to bond to a kind handler. He will need structured exercise to build up his muscles. But, with a gentle hand, he would probably respond well to being broken in to take a rider. He’s an “Easy does it” kind of guy. If you move slow and give him time to process what you are asking of him, he’s very willing to go along.
If you are interested in giving Jason (ID#300146) a chance to show you what a good horse he can be, please fill out the adoption questionaire and indicate that he’s the one for you. He’s willing to give it a try….are you?
