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://www.lenjproductions.com

We will be trying to buy a good supply of hay when the new crop is available this summer. We can save money by buying in bulk. We can fit about 20 tons in the big shed. 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!

Why we don’t use Senior horse feeds.

I do not feed senior horse feeds because of all the unhealthy ingredients..many which can irritate the gut and are pro-inflammatory. Here are ingredients off feed tags. Peanuts, wheat, soy, corn, molasses- not healthy. They also may contain artificial preservatives, colors and flavors.

I feed the 32 year old stallion 2# of alfalfa pellets and 12# of steamed timothy pellets (all soaked). No hay, he has few teeth. I give him 1-2 oz a day of Purina Free Balance granules, an ounce of loose white salt, a cup of Coolstance, one tsp. of turmeric and a pinch of black pepper, to potentiate the turmeric which is anti-inflammatory. He has a salt block. That’s it and he is galloping around. He was on senior feed in foster before he came here in Jan. 2012 and arrived gassy.. foster said he was always gassy for his 6 months after rescue. He’s fine after getting off the senior feed. He had been starved and abused from age 19 to 29.

I googled and found these feed tags posted on the internet. The ingredients tend to vary, depending on availability, but here is an idea of why we avoid these processed feeds.
