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 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 up by the AAEP (American Association of Equine Practitioners). This guide can be viewed by clicking on the Forms icon, then AAEP.
Spring Cleanup Campaign
It's Spring! And to celebrate we are holding a Spring Cleaning Campaign. Here's your chance to get outside and get some grit in your teeth (and everywhere else). Seriously though, if you can help with any of these projects please let me know. We will be concentrating on these items the next 4 Saturdays. If you can't make it then, but still want to participate, just email me and we'll make it work. Or, if you'd rather not get gritty, we could use donations of the items listed.

Here Come the Babies!

Today the NMLB delivered 3 mares to FCER. Two are pregnant and one has already foaled. These horses were unclaimed by their owners and would have gone to the Sale Barn for public auction had FCER not intervened.
05-01-2013 - The call came in at 10:07 a.m. A foal about 10 days old had been orphaned or abandoned by her mother near Sheep Springs, N.M. They foal was trying to join a group of tame horses, but they would have nothing to do with her. An attempt to connect her to the local wild herd was fruitless. The filly had been without food for a least 24 hours. By 5:30 that afternoon Cricket was being treated at Animal Haven Clinic in Farmington. Can the miracles continue?
5-4-2013 - Sadly, they did not. The damage to Cricket's kidneys was too severe to overcome and she was euthanized.
We thank all the people that supported Cricket in her struggle to live.
Sometimes we just don't get to decide what happens.
