new arrivals

This afternoon we had 2 sweet horses come to Lone Oak. They were surrendered to the rescue by family members of the owner who had passed away. One is a grey Arabian gelding and the other a bay thoroughbred mare. Both are broke to ride. They are in need of groceries and are behind on routine care. We expect a full and speedy recovery and quick adoptions of these two sweethearts. Both are in need of sponsors, please help us with their recovery with a partial or full sponsorship
They settled quickly .....
They looked out to the herd who they will join after their recovery and quarantine periods
Once settled into their stalls it was all about the hay...
and the herd was busy enjoying another sunny day grazing in their wonderful pasture.

Things have been very busy for us at the rescue. We have had many visitors, new volunteers, new adoptions and of course projects. We were fortunate to have a great group of people from Habitat for Humanity come out and help us with one of our projects. We are completing an extra large stall and paddock to be available for foaling, and recovery from injuries that would require stall rest. The hardest part being the framing and roofing was completed in a matter of a couple of hours. We expect to finish the sides and run this next sunday. Please check out our face book for new pictures and be sure to Tag yourself!!

Here are some pictures to share...
