Welcome, Mezzanine!

DSC_0003Mezzanine the Thoroughbred was born December 16, 2014, a few months ahead of her due date. Through the dedication of her owners and determination of her vet, Mezzy pulled through and continued to thrive. Although she possesses some very impressive bloodlines, due to her health, Mezzy’s owners decided not to pursue her racing career. Instead, they looked for a home where she would be loved even if she can never be ridden. Although it is our hope that Mezzy will outgrow her condition, TheraPony is committed to this baby regardless of what her future hold. One thing for sure: that future includes no racing and no babies.

Mezzy and Maven have their very own Facebook page Two Worlds, One Family where you can follow their daily lives and adventures.

Special Thank You to Baker Ranch Equine Rescue for their generous donation of a gift basket

Welcome, Maven

DSC_0046Her wild mustang mother was rounded up in February of 2015 in Little Fish Lake, NV and little Baby Mustang was born at a holding facility on April 1, 2015, her freedmen gone. Her mother did not properly care for her, so the baby was raised by a very kind person from the time she was 3 days old. On June 12, 2015, Baby Mustang became a TheraPony horse. Since then, she has made great strides, gaining weight, strength, and improving her health. She may not longer be wild and free, but she has a promise of forever that comes with being a part of TheraPony Family. It is with great pleasure that we introduce to you Maven the mustang, a TheraPony horse

Pennies-4-Ponies

DSC_0190An easy way to help the horses without too much work: Take a Ziplock bag, empty your pockets of any change at the end of the day, help feed the ponies. It’s that simple. At the end of the month, either drop by for a visit with your baggie of change or cash it in at your local bank and make a donation to TheraPony via check or PayPal.

What’s in YOUR pocket?

Welcome Home, Annie Bananie Mae

DSC_0038Annie Mae is a lovely 16 year old mare who had a wonderful loving family that was faced with a very difficult decision to make. At the end of January, Annie was attacked by one of their rescued dogs with anxiety issues. Her family did all the right things, called the vet right away, started treatment and continued to treat her wounds and infection. Unfortunately, a tiny bite on the back leg developed into a nasty tendon sheath infection resistant to most antibiotics. After two months of treatment, the family simply ran out of funds for what needed to be done next. They also lacked the time Annie’s continued care required. They made the difficult decision to let Annie Mae go. There was no time to spare in Annie’s treatment. She arrived Monday night and started aggressive treatment Tuesday morning. A week later, Annie took a trip to San Luis Rey Equine Hospital for a life-saving surgery. Dr. Jessica Stokes and the vets at SLREH along with you, our village, are true heroes to Annie Mae. Three weeks later, we are very optimistic about her prognosis. It is with greatest joy that we officially introduce the newest member of TheraPony family, Annie (Bananie) Mae.

It’s time to start planning Splash Into Summer auction in June!

Happy Birthday, Bevan!

1781971_10153049252819467_8339896194504744952_nNothing makes a rescuer happier than to hear how wonderful one of our horses is doing and how much he is loved by his foster family. Except when we hear it from the stable neighbor. A completely unbiased person stopped us to say “I’ve never seen this horse happier” on our recent visit to Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center and instantly reminded us why we put so much sweat, blood, and tears, along with our savings and any kind of “personal” life into these horses.
Bevan (Always Crowded) has had ups and downs in his life, but there are no sob stories here at TheraPony, only happy endings. And this great-grandson of the great Secretariat and son of Sunshine Forever is celebrating his 20th birthday in style, surrounded by “his” family, with a little girl who is madly in love with him, and without a care in the world. He has never been happier.
Happy Birthday, Bevan!
