Foster Horse for the Month of July- Hiccup

Posted on Jul 14, 2015 in News

Hiccup came to Redwings because of a large seizure of horses by Santa Clara County Animal Control in Morgan Hill, CA. He was uncastrated and seemed to have some sort of leg issue on the rear leg. His past experiences did not stop little Hiccup from becoming one of the sweetest horses on the ranch. He is very affectionate and enjoys his human friends. Redwings staff is certain that Hiccup will make a great companion horse and possibly fit for light riding. He thrives on attention and loves to follow his human friends around the pasture. If you think that Hiccup would be a good addition to your family...

Foster Horse of the Month- Beauty

Posted on Jun 16, 2015 in News

Beauty came to Redwings as part of a neglect case. There were 110 mustangs living on a scant 2 acres in Montana. The owner had bought a few mustangs at the BLM auction, hoping to save the horses from a possible slaughter buyer. Unfortunately the owner did not geld the males and soon the mustangs started breeding. The owner got sick and was unable to care for the horses and they went hungry. Beauty and her mother Ellie were some of the first mustangs that came to Redwings to be rehabilitated because of the severe malnourishment. Because Beauty was young she became healthy and friendly in no time. She...

New Arrival!

Posted on Jun 3, 2015 in News

You may remember Circe from our most recent newsletter. She was one of five horses that we rescued from the Morgan Hill, CA seizure. She came with a yearling filly that we later named Atte. At the time of her arrival the Redwings Staff had no idea that Circe was pregnant. As far as anyone knew she had not been exposed to any stallions. But as the weeks went by Circe started looking more and more pregnant. Soon the staff started to prepare for the undeniable impending baby. We are happy to say that Circe gave birth to a healthy bouncing baby boy. We have not named him yet...

Foster Horse for the month of May- Atte!

Posted on May 5, 2015 in News

Our Foster Horse for the month of May is Atté, she came from a terrible neglect case in Morgan Hill, CA where 38 other horses were seized. Redwings rescued Atté and her mother, along with the other 3 horses that from the large herd. At first Atté was very skittish and clearly frightened of humans. After a few weeks of the staff working with her to gain Atté’s trust, she finally started seeking out attention from the staff. Now she is very comfortable and follows the staff around wanting to get a good scratch on the chest. She even does a little dance when she gets a scratch because...
