Cassie

Cassie
UPDATE: July 2019:  ADOPT CASSIE! Cassie is in her early 20s, and we believe she is an Arabian or Arabian/Morgan type cross. Cassie was abandoned behind the fire lines on Porter Creek Road during the Tubbs fire in October 2017. She and her companion survived the fire and the days following, but the horses were in rough shape and the experience was hard on them. Sadly, her companion had to be euthanized.

However, she earns her keep as a sweet companion to horses young and old alike. Her specialty is taking care of weanlings and... Read More

Wally (#Cloverdale12)
UPDATE June 2019: Thanks to special donations made to CHANGE, Wally has spent the past 90 days at a trainer's barn, learning groundwork and being started under saddle. Wally is sweet and eager to learn, but a sensitive fella. Wally spent his formative years as a young stallion confined to a small stall and paddock 24/7, missing out on normal horse developmental experiences. The trainer reports that although Wally is a kind horse, but he struggles at times and he has not caught on very well in training. Wally does not enjoy being under saddle and gets very nervous. At this... Read More
