Journey’s End Ranch Animal Sanctuary Newsletter May 3, 2014

Our weather has gotten warm, all the horses are pretty much shed out now. Some of them line up to be hosed off as I fill the water tubs every day. Knickers is feeling great. He will be 32 soon. He still runs in for his 3 meals as he is quite the showoff.

It’s very quiet around here without Rhonda, and Carson was looking for her for several weeks. I am thankful that we were able to give her a few good years. It’s heartbreaking to see senior animals ending up in shelters where they have little chance of being saved.

Rainy and Mocha are two of our other dogs who had been dumped at the local shelter almost 5 years ago. They are shy and fearful of strangers, but are wonderful girls.

Lucky, the mustang with chronic lameness, is feeling and looking good. I think we will have the chiropractor out again to work on his hip issues soon.

I was lucky to see a small band of wild Cerbat horses recently. They often come to this side of the mountain in springtime, but we had little rain this winter and I don’t think they will coming back, as there is nothing growing in this area. The Cerbat mountains get more snow and rain and I suspect the wild ones will stay at higher altitudes. The band I saw consisted of a stallion, two mares, a yearling and a new foal. They all looked terrific. Len Johnson has made wonderful documentaries about the Cerbat mustangs. here is a 30 minute excerpt   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJquuyK4s2E   You can order DVD’s here-  http://lenjohnsonproductions.typepad.com

That is a 6 & 1/2 month supply and costs about $5,200. As always, we depend on our loyal and generous supporters and we appreciate you!

    Cathy, what a wonderful documentary by Len Johnson about the beloved Cerbat wild mustangs. He did an excellent job on this story. Was the elusive wild white mustang he saw and filmed the same one you see from time-time? I can’t imagine what you’d do if you heard the BLM helicopters in and around your area; I know how much you love seeing them and how protective of them you are. The ‘Gang’ all look wonderful…great job you for all of them! Bless you, sweetie!

    I see a grey stallion. The BLM does not mess with these horses.. and I hope that doesn’t change..because I would stand up for them. TY Sharon.
