Questions like how could people mistreat, neglect, abuse, and abandon these magnificent sensitive creatures? According to Gina Perrin of HHH, "Our presentation of adoptable horses was a great success. Several horses were adopted after our presentation in June so we had room to take in more horses."
Heavenly Horse Haven is dedicated to the rehabilitation of such horses with the goal to place each one into a forever home. For instance, Buttercup the pony is an HHH success story and has a new forever-home with a little girl and her family.
Two of HHHís biggest rehabilitation projects get good news:
Achilles – A beautiful Gruella Quarter Horse gelding whose owner was going to put down due to founder.
HHH was made aware of the situation and Gina was called to come and visit the gelding to see if she thought she could help him. He was fat, over loved with the wrong kind of feed and not enough exercise. Gina brought him home, put him on a lean diet, had master farrier Rob Kalb work his magic on Achillesí sore feet and gave him the correct care. A year and a half later, this summer, Achilles had his first set of follow-up exams and x-rays, thanks to Cindy Lee of the Wags and Menace Make A Difference Foundation. His x-rays showed he had greatly improved from all his issues. He is on the road to recovery and the ability to be adopted into a new forever-home.
Topaz – A beautiful sensitive buckskin mare found in San Diego County was a horrific case of abuse and abandonment. She was found left tied to a tree without food or water. Her halterís nose piece was so tight that it had cut into her nose, damaging her nasal passages. She was skinny with rope burns on her legs, signs of repeated mistreatment and her back was covered with rain rot. Emotionally and physically she was a mess. Gina assigned her care to head volunteer Emily, who was in charge of figuring out the problems and developing a program for Topazís recovery. Emily showcased Topaz at the summer fundraiser. She accomplished much to bring Topaz back towards recovery for her ordeal and gave her the possibility of a new life. Topazís life has also been impacted because of HHH partnering with Cindy Lee of the Wags and Menace Make a Difference Foundation who has funded Topazís urgent medical needs, treatment, and care. Most recentlydue to new diagnostic tests, HHH staff now knows what is exactly wrong with Topaz and how to treat her. The good news is that Topaz is still healing and on the road to recovery.
It turned out to be a busy and challenging summer for HHH with fire, heat, humility and monsoonal rains. When the Mountain Fire posed a threat to horses in Mountain Center, HHH opened its doors to help. They took in horses that needed to be evacuated and helped in their evacuation when owners had to leave them behind due to evacuation orders. Now with cooler days of fall in sight, HHH is gearing up for its 6th Annual Chili Cook-off Fundraiser, Oct. 26th, starting at high-noon on the HHH Ranch in Anza.
Here is what Gina had to say about this upcoming event:
