Ember is a lot of fun to train!  She adds a lot of spice to our training sessions with her spunky personality.  She been learning about how fun different objects are - including the ball.  Not much bothers her! 🀩 Who else notices how much better she looks now than six weeks ago ? πŸ‘  CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO!

  After some issues with Alamo not accepting Ember, my little herd is finally all together!  I am very grateful. πŸ˜…

The other day I was going through my pictures from our trip to visit the Pryor Mountain Wild Horses two years ago and came across this action-packed shot.  Pictured is Quanah and Oro - both are successful, young band stallions today.  May they forever stay free. ❤️

Happy Independence Day! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ Today is such a special time to celebrate our freedom as Americans. I’m blessed to spend this day, for the first time, with two icons that represent freedom. Although their freedom of living wild was taken away, I’m grateful to have been able to give them back their freedom of choice and thankful that they have chosen to accept life with humans! Alamo, who is a true mustang warrior, inspires me every day to keep fighting for the mustangs and burros’ freedom. I hope that you’ll be constantly reminded throughout today to thank God for our freedoms and for those who thought of the future generations over themselves, and paid the ultimate price for our freedom. May their sacrifices never be forgotten or taken for granted. I pray that each of you have a blessed, safe day celebrating! Please take a moment now to thank God for our freedoms.

  Pickup + Week One with Ember!   Follow along in this video to experience the first week with this little mustang mare. She’s doing so well with her training!

Thanks to all of you, this little mare is safe! She arrived at our rescue yesterday and is doing so well. Her expression gets brighter and more alive every time I go out to check on her! She is very thin, but I can already notice her gaining weight. She gets all of the hay she wants and is enjoying Alfalfa Pellets. I can’t wait to get her on the feed I give my other mustang, Alamo, as it has done wonders for him. As Rune has just stepped into a new life, she needs a new name, too. I’d like to introduce her to you as Ember! Ember represents all the mustangs in kill pens, and she is a wonderful reminder to me that there is hope for those horses. Thank you again for your support and prayers! It means so much to me, and I thank God for all of you. ~Erin P.S. There’s a big story behind our drive home with Ember… stay tuned for a blog post about her rescue story!

Thank you so much for your donations, kind words, prayers, and support! Rune is safe and in the care of a wonderful mustang trainer, who is keeping her for a few days. I am so grateful to God for working everything out. It is a comfort to know that He loves and cares for each of these animals. Four days ago, Rune was the typical mustang in the horse slaughter trade - her future looked grim. Now, her future is filled with hope because of your generosity and prayers! However, we are still raising funds for round pen panels and Rune’s care. You can still donate here . Again, thank you so very much! I pray that God blesses each one of you abundantly! ~Erin Phillips

Hello Everyone! Thank you all for your incredible support, prayers, and kindness! It is such a blessing to see so many people come together for a little mustang. Tomorrow morning is when I have to decide whether I can take Rune or not. Please take a moment to pray and share Rune’s fundraiser with your friends and family - it will save a life!   We want to say “yes” and defy the odds against Rune instead of saying “no” and allowing her to be slaughtered within a week. She is the face of so many mustangs in kill pens, and it is my hope that her story will inspire others to pass the SAFE Act and end horse slaughter. Please share our fundraiser for Rune! Thank you again for your incredible kindness shown to this beautiful wild horse. ~Erin Phillips

Help Save Mustang Rune!

Image
  This little mustang, Rune, needs your help!  We have until Friday to get her out from a kill pen in Kentucky, before she ships to be slaughtered.  Rune was gathered from Nevada a of couple years ago, and has been let down by humans ever since.  She is a mustang with so much potential and doesn't deserve such a horrific ending.  As a "nationally protected icon" Rune shouldn't even be in this terrible situation.  She should still be living wild and free with her family band in Nevada. It is our goal to rescue this little mustang, defy what her grim future looks like now, and give her the best home she's ever known out of the wild.  Giving her a happy ending requires community effort - please donate if you can and please share this fundraiser with others.  It will cost $600 just to bail her out.  We will be quarantining her on our property, but we need funds for vet care, transport, feed, and hay.  Please consider helping Rune - it would save a life!
