2/10/11 Update on Copperopolis Horses~by Re-Horse Rescue Ranch

Hello Everyone, We wanted to update everyone as to the progress and condition of the newly rescued horses from Copperopolis. All the horses have settled in and are adapting nicely to their new living accommodations.
We have so far had 3 hoof abscesses that required veterinary treatment. Many are in need of dental care and very underweight. 3 of the mares here at ReHorse have been "untouchable". In the last 3 days with the help of some yummy apple horses cookies we have been able to finally touch all of the horses. We are assuming that at least the 3 have never been haltered.....

We have been able to obtain more information about the older horses from the Morgan Horse Association. The owner did not keep up registrations as he was breeding. The stallion's registered name is "Apollo's Firefox" and he is 28 years old. The older mare that we call "GiGi" is registered her registered name is "Apollo's Lady Hawk" and she is 24 years old. One of the chestnut mares at Remington Ranch we call "Lace", we believe her registered name is "Erika's Crystal Lace" and she is 23 years old. None of the younger horses are registered but the Morgan Horse Association said DNA's for registration can be done.

We have been working with the help of volunteers to get the horses cleaned up. What you can see on the horses is not mud. It's petrified feces and dirt. It's like concrete and has proven quite difficult to remove. We have resorted to scissors. Hopefully most will come off when they shed out. What a mess!!!!

We appreciate all the support for the 10 Copper Horses. We have a long road ahead to rehabilitate these horses. Your continued support is appreciated.

Donations can be made at or sent to ReHorse Rescue Ranch, P.O. Box 494, Jamestown, Ca 95327.
