Sound Breeze Thoroughbred's Journey 2015

Sound Breeze TB was surrendered to WRR in March 2011 after a racing injury.  A new life for him was born.
 
Sound Breeze was adopted then returned after a fit in heaven wasn't made. WRR was glad to have him back rather than he be unhappy and so the new owner.
 
Then Sound Breeze found his new owners, Carol and Daryl, in August 2011. Sound Breeze was suppose to be for Daryl, but as you know when you have a relationship with a horse you know it.
 
Sound Breeze then moved with his new owner and love of his life to Louisiana.
 
Sound Breeze now found his perfect fit with Carol and it had green grass too.
 
Sound Breeze was decorated for Christmas 2014
 
 
with more than just one halter.
 
And now 2015, Sound Breeze has his own name on his halter from Carol, who loves him more each day.  Thank you Carol for adopting Sound Breeze, a rehab Thoroughbred.

Delilah before and after 2014-2015

My name is Delilah. I am a Foundation Quarter Horse and i am between the ages of 5 and 7. Before i came to White Rock Horse Rescue August 2014, i was owned by a family that used me for eventing. When they could no longer use me because i was lame, and very thin, they surrendered me to WRR. Now i am sponsored by a girl named Lauren. She comes up to WRR to care for me and ride me 4 times a week. For the past 8 months she has been feeding me pellets, and i have shoes on all 4 to eliminate lameness. Now after 8 months, i am a healthy weight, and am happier than i have ever been because i know i am loved. Lauren and I are going to be entering in Gymkhana within these next few months. I love my new home at The White Rock Horse Rescue. See the photos before and after below.

Update March 17th, Is She or Isn't She, Pregnant? "no"

Update March 17, 2015:

Dr. Petrus came to WRR on March 16, 2015 and rechecked Stella.  As we waited with bated breath and the real sign came.  2nd Chance was returned to WRR and Stella fell in love.  Dr. Petrus said she was too fat.  All the signs point to "no".  Thank you for any interest in Stella and the Vet bill was reasonable.  Isabel


Stella, a black Quarter Horse mare, came to White Rock Rescue on August 2014, as a rescue from a breeding farm in Sky Valley California. She had just been taken away from her 6 month old foal, and was extremely out of proportion when she came. Stella didn't loose any weight but has continued to have milk. Please note WRR has no stallions, and a no breeding policy, so she would be in foal by the previous owners. Stella was a brood mare, and only halter broken, but sweet as can be with people. She is also available for adoption.
 A vet was called to determine if she was in foal, but because of her previous foal condition, the vet could not determine "yes" or "no." As you can see in the pictures, WRR is concerned if proper care is needed for Stella if she is pregnant. With this scenerio, WRR needs your help with donations to take Stella to Dr.Lenhert for an ultrasound. Any donations recieved for Stella will go towards Stella's condition. Any donations will be appreciated through paypal, via mail, or in person: 733 Geronimo Trail, Yucca Valley, CA 92284. Thank you for your consideration in Stella.

Birthday Party for Applejack, 1 years old 8/24/2014




 
September 15, 2013 Applejack was born at the Villa and a surprise he was.  Applejack's mom was a rescue from the Animal Shelter after she was hit by a car and then donated to WRR at Carol's Retirement.  Carol is his mom and she did hold him close to her, then:


Now 1 year later Applejack is healthy and a pet that is now Carol's dog.  Applejack cries when Carol pulls up and heaven forbid if she has a bag.  Applejack knows it is for him.  Applejack had 12 guests at his party, with treats and love from everyone.  His buddy Harold came to the party too.

Promise's Trip to 29-Palm Military Base

Promise's was starting a new life with Amba and James, and White Rock Horse Rescue was excited for her and her new family.  Promise moved right into her new stall in Landers and starting eating.  Amba was so excited about taking good care of her, the next morning Amba was going to worm her and start a relationship with her.
But as all good plans go, Promise had a different idea, she thought she would head out for the desert and site see.  So Promise took off and she was unstoppable heading for 29 Palms Military Base off Border and Reche.  James started tracting her on foot and when he reached Border, no entrance beyond this point, he figured Promise couldn't read because her foot steps kept going.
James and Amba called White Rock and away Dave and Brian sprung into action, with 4-wheel drive vehicles and a urgent call to the Base for permission to look for Promise.  After permission with the escort, Sgt. Adam Munoz, LCPL Cole Corwin, from PMO Special Reaction Team, came to the rescue with binoculars in hand. As the team went in different directions because Promise was now 4 hours without water, the task was on to find Promise.
 Dave received a call from the team and they had found Promise, so Dave went to get her in the truck, but she was only a dot in their binoculars.  The team could see her in the area where there was no firing but the town and area around had smal firing going on.  Save the horse........was the new owners desire.
So after going into the Marine Corp Base 6 miles by truck, Promise was now on her way home through the desert again but the other way.  Promise's feet hurt, needed water which was provided by the Team, and didn't like being pulled through the desert by a truck to get her to the safe area of Border and Reche for a ride home.  Promise was finally home with sore feet and and experience she will never forget or will Sgt. Munoz, LCPL Corwin, our heros.  WRR and everyone involved want to thank the Team and the Marine Corp Base for their help and understanding in our desire to find our horse and bring her home safely with no injuries.  Another job well done.  Thank you.
Promise, QH mare, 18 years old.

Why, Why kill the Donkey???

In the Naturet Park lived a little Donkey.  He came from Mexico and was given to White Rock by the Chen Family as a special gift for all to enjoy.  He lived very happy for months, but then one day or night, someone, something, destroyed him in one or two or even three blows to the head.  I don't know why he had to die, but we will be buring him this weekend in the Nature Park.   White Rock will miss him and hopefully, we will have another donkey in the fuiture for all to enjoy and love.
