Willow and her filly, Jewel, arrived from a NV feedlot in May 2011. Willow's hooves and teeth showed extended neglect. Her toes were very long with sizable cracks and flares, and she had an enormous abscess in one hoof. As is often the case with the feedlot rescues, Willow was pregnant when she arrived and foaled in May 2012. Both fillies have been adopted but Willow is still waiting for her forever home. While she had lost trust for humans when she first arrived, Willow has made significant strides over the past year. She displays a calm, level-headed personality when given time to adjust to new situations. Big-bodied with lovely floating movement, she is looking for an experienced horse owner who will give her the training and confidence she needs to become their next dream riding partner.
Adoption fee subject to change based on training. Please refer to website for current information.

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.
