Oak Meadows Ranch Horse Rescue - Oak Meadows Ranch, Wildomar, California

 

Rescuing a horse because the owner can no longer have it or feed it VS. Rescuing a horse because someone abandoned it and the person helping it can not afford to feed it.

Many have never experienced a rescue when a horse truly needs to be rescued or it will die of starvation. In the case of Spirit she was left at home in Norco that had stalls. The owner simply just left his horse there and the homeowners didn't have money to feed the her. They waited and waited for him to return but he didn't and they could only give her a little bit of hay but not enough for her to survive on. She was scared and hiding in a corner. She was so weak she could barely walk. Spirit had given up on life and was ready to die. She was hundreds of pounds under weight.

Rescuing a horse that is starving and ready to die is very emotional. There are many horses like the case of Spirit not just throughout Riverside County but all over. Many of these horses have not only been abandoned, but they have been abused, many that have gone long periods without food or water. Not 12 or 24 hours without food but weeks and about to die. Like in Charlie's case chained to a chain link fence in 90+ degree weather with no food or water, Smokey with a wire around his neck attached to an abandoned barn with no food or water found hundreds of pounds under weight.

If horses like the one's just mentioned are found and rescued by good people and given the proper care and nutrition they become very attached to their new owner and horse friends. When rescued they run and leap into the horse trailer, when properly taken care of they don't want to leave and refuse to go in the horse trailer in fear that they will be taken away from their friends, new owner and abused and starved again.

Many people that think a horse rescue is just about today giving the horse their hay twice daily, giving them water and cleaning their stalls doesn't really realize the whole picture from the beginning to getting that horse at a good weight, healthy and being a trusting, loving horse again. Experiencing a rescue of a horse that desperately needs to be rescued or it will die is something someone that loves horses and likes helping around the ranch at a horse rescue should really experience at least once to truly understand what a horse rescue really does.

Oak Meadows Ranch is a private ranch that has horses on the property rescued by the Blue Pearl Project. We prefer no drama, the ranch is just all about horses and prefer everyone to leave their drama, gossip and opinions else where. This ranch is strickly about the horses and for those that want to be around horses.
