Trish adopted Dixie as a yearling several years ago. This duo is one for the record books! Trish is an absolutely wonderful Mom and now also has another horse TA - also from FCER. We are so thankful to all the people that have adopted horses from FCER. And all the people that support our efforts through donating time, funding, or both!
FCER is an all volunteer non-profit group dedicated to the rescue of horses, burros, and mules: their rehabilitation (both physically and mentally), and their adoption into good, loving homes. We will assist wherever, whenever we can, to help horses in need.
Located just outside Aztec, in the Four Corners area of New Mexico,we are licensed by the State of New Mexico, and follow the guidelines for rescues as set forth by the AAEP (American Association of Equine Practitioners). This guide can be viewed by clicking on the Forms icon, then AAEP.
The 2015 calendar is here! A great Christmas present for that hard to buy for person on your list! Each month features a different horse that is either in FCER now or has been adopted from FCER. See some great photos of rescue horses at work and play!
Calendars are $16 each including shipping. We can ship as a gift to a different address if you'd like.
It is November, and the weather is crazy. As I watch the news with snowstorms, high winds and frigid temperatures covering vast parts of these United States I can’t help but give a “thank you” to the Lord . The horses here have so far been spared from the life threatening conditions animals elsewhere are enduring. As the year winds down and we enter this season of Thankfulness and Giving, it is time to reflect on the year that is quickly coming to a close. The Year of the Horse has been a good one for horses here at the rescue, and in a broader sense, nationwide. New footholds have been gained in the quest to preserve these most noble of God’s animals, and it is encouraging to see more people come to a better understanding of the need to help.
Here the horses are preparing for winter too, growing their long winter hair that will shield them from the cold to come. Hay consumption is up, as they store fat for insulation and energy to create body heat. Going into winter a little plump is a good thing for them. Some of us humans are working on the same premise - Ho Ho Ho.
This Holiday season we would like to thank all the people that have supported our efforts here at FCER. From those that volunteer their time to those that volunteer their money, we appreciate you - one and all. Know that it takes all of us doing what we can to make the world a better place for horses. While some can help more than others, each one is essential to our efforts.
May the holidays bring much joy and good times to you and those you love. Be safe, be happy and be loved. But in all the hustle and bustle that is the Holiday Season, take a moment to acknowledge your participation in the struggle to make the world a better place. And give yourself a pat on the back. What the heck - you deserve it!
