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 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.

Just as Santa and his elves bustle in the workshop preparing gifts for Christmas, so do the volunteers at FCER bustle in the barnyard in a valiant effort to prepare the horses and the facility for winter. Albeit, our list is a little different - check the rain gutters on the barn, make one last stab at tilling the paddocks before they become impassable. Who’s growing a good winter coat, and more importantly, who isn’t? We’ll have to rearrange the population in the barn to accommodate those that need special attention in the cold winter months - the older horses all need supplements, and the horses still in rehab will need extra bedding and blankets. The barn now becomes protection from the cold winds, rain and snow that are sure to come. Water tanks need to be moved to sunny parts of the pens, and near electricity for the heaters. It’s supposed to be a wet winter, so the guys are busy stocking up on hay in the hay barn, knowing the possibility of not being able to get to the barn with more hay in the winter. The horses look at us with curiosity and wonder what the heck humans are doing now. Perhaps wiser than we are, they seem not to share our sense of urgency.
Amidst all this bustle we would like to pause to say THANK YOU to all those people that have helped us save horses this past year. Regardless of the size of your donation, be it money or time, please know that through your support we are able to continue to help these ever so worthy equines. Every little bit of help is more than we would have had without you. Enjoy your holidays and take pride in your efforts to help make the world a better place for the horses.
