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.

Give her a try.

Vinny and Stormy: In memory

Our story begins with a call for help from Stormy the owner of Vinny.  She had given her horse, Vinny, to a private party and a call was made to her that Vinny wasn't doing well. He couldn't walk on his left hind foot and swelling had taken place.  They asked her if they could take him to auction.  Stormy was there in a minute to see Vinny.  May 2014

After seeing Vinny in a lot of pain with his back left foot, swelling and not weight baring, and into the 3rd week of pain, Stormy stayed with Vinny at that ranch for 2 weeks but Stormy didn't see the condition getting better.  The Ranch told her Vinny had a broken bone and an absess in his left hind.  Stormy took Vinny back with no questions, just love and looked for help.

Stormy had Vinny trailered to Laughing Stock Ranch, Toni, and from there White Rock Horse Rescue was called to see if there was room for Vinny to rehab at and be donated.  White Rock Horse Rescue took him immediately so Vinny could get better. But it didn't get better.  Vinny and Stormy were in pain.May 12, 2014.

After farrier, friends, and Dr. Lenhert with xrays, which were donated to WRR by Dave, it was determined Vinny had a nail hole in his foot and it was missed diagnosed at the previous ranch, and now Vinny had a bone infection which is painful and not successful fore rehab.  With all the right information, Vinny with Stormy at his side, is now at piece with no pain.  But Stormy had two wonderful days with him at the WRR and acceptance was reached.  Vinny will always be in her heart.  The experience for WRR was true love and devotion.  Thanks Stormy for being there for Vinny.
Always, Isabel
