Each rescue that comes through Sea2Stable's gates is not just here to be "rescued". They are also here to teach. For each one has a story, and with that, it is our job, to open our minds and hearts and learn what we can do to help not only them; but any and all in the future. They truly leave a hoof print on our heart.
Ivy was my first foster. A gorgeous Welsh cob in her early 20's. Never having training and minimal handling. She had no reason to EVER want to have anything to do with people. She now has an amazing home and I still keep in touch with her "mom". This success hooked me in to keep going.
Lesson: It's never too late
Gorgeous Paso Fino. Having gone through several homes prior going to Horse North, he lacked consistency to feel secure. A very sensitive horse, he was very flighty. He was a litmus test for calm surroundings. It was perfect for him to move on to t important role as a therapy horse!!!
Lesson: People are to be safety
Lilly's half sister. Rescued from the same seizure, she waited for 5 years unadopted. To bring closure to this herds trauma, I got Jezzie!!! She never let her guard down. Always tense. With massage, calm training, and stalling, she was able to find time to decompress and thus relax.
Lesson: Stalling is needed for some
An older QH, this sweet older mare needed some motivation to simply halter and "join the party". Having solid training in her past. Once we got through that, she was one of the most solid horses I have met and quickly adopted.
Lesson: Don't take easy for granted
Koko was a 30 year old Paint, who upon leaving a life long home, developed some aggressive behaviors on arriving to the local rescue. I fostered her to address these issues and help her with her increasing vision loss. Unfortunately She passed due to a very sudden unavoidable torsion.
Lesson: Tomorrow is never promised
Alex was a young 2.5 year old unhandled Arabian gelding. Smart as a whip with a great brain. He learned all he needed quickly to wait to come of age to be trained under saddle with his new family as an endurance horse.
Lesson: Slow and steady wins the race
Molly was here as a foster from Horse North Rescue. She had chronic founder and Cushings . After years of rehab from many experts, we said goodbye to this sweet girl Jan of 2024. I loved this girl and her love for life. Kids especially loved her sassy inspiration.
