Ruby and her colt, Gem, arrived from a NV feedlot on May 28, 2011. Ruby was very thin and in poor condition, as she was depleting herself to feed Gem. Her teeth in particular were in poor condition, with clumps of partially chewed hay falling from her mouth. With care and the needed attention, Ruby has regained her health. While she was untouchable when she arrived, Ruby has learned to trust and can perform basic groundwork skills. With her calm, gentle temperament, and older age, Ruby would be a nice companion horse to groom and love on.

All About Equine Animal Rescue Inc. -
All About Equine Animal Rescue (AAE) is a 100 percent volunteer-based, 501c3 charitable, non-profit equine rescue and rehabilitation organization located in El Dorado Hills, California.
AAE was founded in 2009 as a result of the down economy and growing number of distressed and auction-/slaughter-bound horses. Too many horses are being transported across US borders and commercially slaughtered each year, and many more inhumanely die each year from neglect, abandonment, abuse, or improper care. Most of our horses are rescued from a slaughterhouse-owned feedlot before they are transported to slaughter in Canada or Mexico.
We want to make a difference. With your support, we can make a change. Your contribution means the difference between life and death, one horse at a time.
Ã¢â¬ÅBy saving the life of one horse, we may not be changing the world, but we are changing the world for that one horse.Ã¢â¬Â Author unknown.
