Mare, Baby, More Mares and Babies

Hello everyone!

Update on mare and baby taken from Ryons Kill Pen a couple of weeks ago: the mare turned out to be untouchable – whatever has happened to her has left deep scars and she will stop at nothing to try to protect her baby. Baby has a head injury which we are unable to treat because we cannot get close enough to him to treat it. The mare will attempt to bite people or kick when handled.

This presents a huge problem, because the mare is in foster care and the family that offered to help out did not anticipate this kind of a horse coming to their place. We did not either. The colt appears to be a half draft, so our best guess is that the mare is a STB or STB cross. She is beautiful.

They came with the usual problems that Ryons kill pen horses have – respiratory. We struggled with what to do, then called the vet. The vet was unable to get close to the horses, so prescribed an antibiotic to put on the feed. The mare decided she was not going to eat the feed if it had the medicine on it, so the coughing and discharge continued.

Our next strategy was to dissolve the medication in warm water, then add to the drinking water. Get the horses into the barn and lock them in long enough to get some results from the medicine in their water. It worked!!!! The mare and colt are now free of the respiratory problems.

ASAP is not prepared to deal with a horse who is basically full of fear and anger. We are seeking a foster home or adoptive home for someone who wants a project – and has the experience to see it through. Our hope is that the trauma they suffered will become a memory, and that both horses will be able to trust again. We are grateful to those who reached out to pay their hard earned dollars so that these two would have a chance at life……..we are hoping for the best possible outcome.

In the meantime, the vet bill was $200. If anyone sees it in their heart to make a donation, please go to our site at and use the Pay Pal button, or send a donation to us at:j
