Teddy

Age: All Ages    Gender:

Teddy came to Equine Voices in January of 2012. He’s an old ranch horse that was found abandoned in the desert with a permanent injury to his leg. Teddy was adopted out when we first received him, but came back to us in July of 2013 when his owner was no longer able to care for him. He is about 14 years old now and is roughly 14.5 hands-high. He is a very kind-hearted character and gets along great with his stablemates. Because of Teddy’s leg injury, he is no longer able to be ridden, but he would make a wonderful companion horse.

Unfortunately Teddy was suffering and in pain on a daily basis, so the decision was made to humanely euthanize him in October 2018.  He passed quietly and peacefully, surrounded by Karen and all the volunteers that loved him.

We’ll miss you Teddy, have a great time on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge…we’ll forever miss you!

In late January, Strawberry Moon suffered a bout of colic and underwent emergency surgery at Arizona Equine Hospital in Gilbert, AZ.  He returned home in early February, and has since been recovering in a separate corral next to his herd.  He will be reunited with his mom and friends soon.  Strawberry Moon’s veterinary bills were an unexpected expense.  If you are able to contribute to his medical fund, please contact us at 520.398.2814.  We thank you in advance for your help!

Newfies Pride

Age: All Ages    Gender:

Jan., 2001 – Nov. 2006
Newfies Pride came to us from a feedlot in Canada. A registered Paint, she moved like a show horse, and according to her registered name-was the pride of her sire. How did she & her foal end up cast away and unwanted? She was certainly cherished and loved by all at Equine Voices, which was to be her final home. Only 5 yrs. old, Newfies Pride became ill and passed away suddenly. Perhaps she was so special God wanted her back quickly. Perhaps her sole purpose was educating about slaughter. Perhaps she was given enough time to understand there are still those who care, before she left. We will miss you, sweet mare.

Dreamer

Age: All Ages    Gender:

Aug/Sept.2004 – Dec.2004
Brutally taken from his mother at only one month, Dreamer arrived at Equine Voices in October 2004, rescued along with 14 other foals who would have been slaughtered for leather – “ponyskin” foals. Unfortunately all of them became very ill with strangles. Despite heroic efforts to save him, this frail baby was too young & too sick. He succumbed 2 months later. How can people treat God’s precious creatures this way? Dear little Dreamer, we know the angels cried the day you left. We will always remember you.

Mistral

Age: All Ages    Gender:

May, 2006 – April 28,2007 (PMU foal from Canada)
We did not have him long. He died suddenly and unexpectedly from complications from a rattlesnake bite. Mistral was originally shy & fearful of people, but his comical & mischievous personality shone through as he taunted his pasture-mate, Sundancer, rearing like a young stallion. He was a horse with a sense of humor. Mistral had a connection with Deanna McCormick, a volunteer who worked training him. She discovered he loved vanilla chapstick, and would spend time smearing it on both of their noses and lips. He also loved splashing & playing with water. Deanna instinctively knew all training sessions needed to end on a light-hearted note with this whimsical colt. In Deanna’s words, who knew him best: “He was not a quick learner; but he tried hard. A lesson, once learned, was rock-solid. In this respect, he was like me. Thank you, Mistral, for allowing me to scratch your face & rub your neck. You touched my life briefly, but you touched my heart forever…” Deanna was there to hold & comfort Mistral as he drew his last breath. It thundered & rained, with gusts of wind that shocking and sad afternoon. Was this a trickle of tears from heaven? Perhaps in the weather, so like the ‘mistrals’ of France for which he was aptly named, was his message from above – “Please remember me.” Little Mistral, you will be missed.

Roy

Age: All Ages    Gender:

May, 2006 – June 4, 2007
Roy was a PMU foal, rescued with his dam from Alberta, Canada. This engaging young colt was a unique and extremely handsome boy. Roy’s coat shone brilliantly. He emanated libido, a free spirit, and something ethereal. Roy received a multitude of inquiries, but all were those interested in his appearance only. The right loving people had not come along. At 2, Roy became ill. The vet determined he had an internal abscess. Roy struggled vehemently. Incredibly, when he was at his weakest – when his weight had dropped to an alarming level, and his coat & demeanor had lost its sparkle, angels appeared in the form of a couple who so dearly desired to give him a home. Dani & Mike promised him they would adopt & love him forever when he overcame this malady. It was a long and torturous 2 months, with constant vet care. We prayed for a miracle, but it was not to be. Roy succumbed after a long & hard battle. His heroic and valiant efforts to live will never, ever be forgotten. Roy’s hopeful adoptive parents were crushed by his demise, but they vowed to take the least adoptable horse. A few days after Roy’s death, we learned of a club-footed horse who desperately needed a home. We informed Dani & Mike. Incredibly, Mike was born with club feet. Was this a coincidence? We think not, for dear, sweet Roy – we are sure you paved the way. Dani & Mike have adopted the club footed horse. May you be happy frolicking in that pasture which lies beyond, Roy. You touched so many lives…..forever.

Molly

Age: All Ages    Gender:

1992-July 4, 2007
Molly, a big yellow lab, was the mainstay at Equine Voices. She was a sort-of rescue herself. Molly was 13 when she arrived at Equine Voices, and her hip dysplasia was worsening. Her original owners were moving to Florida – Molly was not. Karen took her, and Equine Voices became her final home. Molly loved the ranch, the horses, and the people. All loved Molly in return. She took her job of “first to greet” volunteers & visitors, very seriously. In fact, this purpose surely extended her life. Molly died on the 4th of July, 2007 at the age of 15. Her dignity and forbearance will be remembered. Her sweet and gentle presence will be deeply missed. Over the Rainbow Bridge – until we meet again.

Jack

Age: All Ages    Gender:

??? – September 21, 2007
Jack was found anbandoned and wandering aimlessly on a rural highway. He was emaciated, with horrifically swollen hocks & knees, and sporting terrible sores. Although nothing was known about his history, the signs indicate that he was probably a drug cartel horse – driven mercilessly & relentlessly through the desert, with little to no food or water, and bearing a too heavy load – then left to die. He was brought to Equine Voices by the Livestock Inspector, where he was received with much love. Jack was an inspriation to all that knew him. He touched the hearts of many who saw his picture on our website, and were moved to sponsor him. His spirit was indomitable; his nature sweet and gentle. He was given care and nourishment, and he was coming around nicely. We had such hope. But six weeks after Jack arrived, he went down and could not rally again. His brutally damaged and swollen legs were a source of great pain, and his eyes were so very tired. However, we will never forget how hard this terribly abused horse strived to live. He probably did it for us. Jack was greatly cherished during the short time he graced our sanctuary, and this is his final resting place. We believe his spirit will always be present at Equine Voices, where he finally found peace and solace, and where he was held lovingly and tenderly the last morning of his life. Jack did not die alone……
We want to extend our great appreciation, and heartfelt thanks, to all who sponsored Jack. He truly was a blessing.

Blaze

Age: All Ages    Gender:

In memory of Blaze.   He was a severe starvation case but is now healthy, except for some soundness issues.

Age: All Ages    Gender:

Goodbye to Our Beloved M&M (Mystery Man)

Age: All Ages    Gender:

M&M was found tied to a fence over a year ago on the eastside of Tucson. Therapeutic Riding of Tucson (TROT) stepped up and fostered him for a short period of time while trying to find a home for him. After TROT could no longer keep him, Equine Voices and DSESC took him in and started medical evaluation to assess his condition. After much testing, X-rays told the story. M&M’s bones in his feet were porous and the front sections in each hoof were gone. Aggressive treatments by our dedicated veterinarian such as use of supplements, injections, and special corrective shoes were tried. Even with the treatments, M&M’s condition continued to worsen and our veterinarian was once again consulted on the best course of care and treatment. Without 2 grams of bute daily, he could not walk. M&M’s condition had worsened to the point that the bones in his feet were almost gone, we had run out of options.

Many of our volunteers have bonded with M&M and looked forward to their time with him. He too seemed to love his time with his humans, and showed his affection by sweetly nuzzling them during times of grooming and handling. He became a part of their lives, and their lives became a part of his.

M&M was humanely euthanized on June 9, 2010. For all of us that cared and loved him, this was the most generous act of love and dignity that we could do for M&M. He is resting comfortably now and is at peace.

Colibri

Age: All Ages    Gender:

Even his name was transitory. Colibri. A prophecy of what was to come in the waning hours of this lifetime. Like his namesake, he arrived for a fleeting moment, and then as quickly, he was gone. A warrior horse, who could imagine such power from one left so seemingly debilitated by human inhumanity. Even this did not dim the lessons he illuminated for the humans whose lives he touched. A different one for each, and each left to sort out what light he brought so their lesson will not be lost.

May each life he touched grasp the enormity of his presence, and be humbled by his own sacrifice. Go well into the next lifetime. You are remembered.

Chocolate

Age: All Ages    Gender:

I was rescued and came to EV as a starvation case; an old, unwanted horse with one damaged eye. I was somewhere around 30 or more, and I had been given such great care here that there were days I was almost frisky! No one knows quite what breed I was – but possibly a reservation pony. I was often let out to wander the sanctuary, and I checked on everybody, as I felt this was my job. I was old – but wise, and I had lots of personality & character. This was my final home.

M & M

Age: All Ages    Gender:

I was given to Equine Voices in February 2009. I was more than 10 years old and had special needs (navicular) disease that required medication to keep the pain at bay. I was very sweet and loved receiving attention.

Big Bud

Age: All Ages    Gender:

I was rescued in California to be Spirit’s companion by Karen. She brought me with Spirit to AZ when she moved and started Equine Voices. I had been beaten, abused, unloved, and unwanted for many years by an owner who decided to send me to slaughter. I was lucky to be rescued, and I call this sanctuary my permanent home. I am finally loved, and I respond well to the gentle care & attention I receive. Everyone here thinks I am quite grand, even though I can still get cranky on occasion. I do have arthritis and that can be painful. I need special care.

Godiva

Age: All Ages    Gender:

Equine Voices bought Godiva for $75 at auction in Nogales, Arizona. What value do we place on a beautiful life? Godiva was seized at a checkpoint in a trailer carrying drugs. She was put at the mercy of the state due to greed. A killer-buyer was on sight at the auction so we made sure to show up and out-bid him to save Godiva’s life. Godiva’s estimated date of birth is 6/10/10.

Mocha & Skye

Age: All Ages    Gender:

Thank you so much for wishing mocha and I good luck!! We had so much fun and mocha was better than I ever thought she would be at her first time staying somewhere over night and for 3 nights!! She was an absolute angel I couldn’t have asked for her to be better! She absolutely loved all the attention from all the families that walked by and visited with her especially the little kids she’s so gentle with them! She was absolutely amazing when I showed her, showmanship we our first class we did (which is an in hand pattern) and she did amazing she was so calm with all the pop up tents, a ton of people and big trucks that sprayed out water. I couldn’t have been more proud but to top that off she turned around and won the overall trophy for beginner western showmanship! It may not have been a big deal to others but it meant the world to me because of how hard we have worked to get the this point! Of course I cried tears of joy because I didn’t expect her to try this hard for me especially since it was only her second time ever being at the fairgrounds! She was also really good for our beginner western pleasure class (you just go in a circle walking, trotting and loping). She was a little more alert in this class because it was only her third time riding in an arena with other horses but she did amazing and did everything I asked her to do! We won a red in this class! (The judge had a hard time placing this class so she gave out several second places). I’m extremely proud of her I wish you and Karen were there to see her show but I have sent a separate email with  some pictures and videos for you guys! Unfortunately we forgot the camera so they aren’t super clear

Sassy

Age: All Ages    Gender:

Sassy is obviously not an equine, she is a Nigerian Dwarf goat.  Sassy was raised by a 4-H member who outgrew 4-H and sold her goats; all except for Sassy who she said was too sweet to go just anywhere.  She contacted us and asked if we would take Sassy as a companion animal for one of our horses.  How could we say no?  Just look at that face!  Sassy is looking for someone to sponsor her and help with the cost of her feed and care.

Apollo

Age: All Ages    Gender:

Apollo was brought to us in April, 2015 after being found abandoned in Dog Patch south of Tucson.  Apollo had a tumor in his left eye that we had removed the day after he arrived.  The cancer later returned and in December, 2015 we had the eye completely removed to keep the cancer from spreading to other areas of his body. Apollo is a very well-trained horse who came in with three shoes on, one apparently lost somewhere in the desert.  An older horse like Apollo that has health issues would normally end up going directly to slaughter. When we get cases like Apollo in, we have to wonder why someone would just abandon him?  Did he belong to an older person who passed on and the family didn’t know what to do with the horse so they set him out?  Did the owner not want to have to deal with the cost of surgery and figured since he was such an old horse they should just throw him away as he wasn’t worth keeping?  We will probably never have the answers as to why Apollo was abandoned.  We are just happy that this sweet, 30-year old guy ended up here with us where he can get the care he needs to enjoy the rest of his life.

His estimated date of birth is 6/1/85.  Apollo is now 34 years old and is quite comfortable in his surroundings, especially with his herd, Janelle and Samson.  He has a bit of arthritis and on cold nights needs to be stabled with a heat lamp to warm him.  But otherwise he is a handsome, confident guy who is always agreeable.

Logan

Age: All Ages    Gender:

In January, 2016 we received a call about a horse with an injured leg that was abandoned in the desert. Logan found his way on a property in Rio Rico and needed a place to go. After a couple of attempts in catching him, we realized we needed help and hired Zuzanna Runge, our trainer to assist with loading him in the trailer in order to get him home safe and sound.   With the help of, Ted Wilson, our Ranch Manager and volunteer, Erika Limmer a few hours later, Logan was loaded and on his way home.  Unfortunately, Logan has a severe leg and knee injury and is lame for life. This young gelding may have been used for roping practice, or in a Charro Rodeo, where cowboys rope young horses as they canter around a round-pen, only to throw them on the ground. Although illegal, this horrific “sport” is practiced in secluded areas around southern Arizona and New Mexico. Logan, is sweet, playful, and has quite an inquisitive personality.

Casper & Wendy

Age: All Ages    Gender:

I found Desert Springs Equine Sanctuary Center on the internet and did a bit of research. I soon discovered that DSESC had a partnership with Equine Voices. On a beautiful Saturday morning, my husband and I went for a tour of DSESC. As we walked from horse to horse and learned about the horrors that many had suffered, I was heartbroken. At the very last corral on the tour, I found a blue eyed, cremello colt that won my heart instantly. I learned about how this little colt had been born at DSESC and the story of “Hope” the foal’s mother. I was told that “Hope” and another mare “Joy” were rescued from auction by Equine Voices in March 2009 after being found packed with drugs and covered in pack sores. When Hope arrived at DSESC, she was so emaciated that they had no idea that she was well into her eighth month of pregnancy. As we drove away from Desert Springs, both my husband and I knew that we had found a new addition to our family.

Adopted June 2018.

Patches

Age: All Ages    Gender:

June and Patches. Another successful and wonderful adoption story. From not loading in the trailer, to riding in a few short weeks!


Patches is about 4 years old. She is very sweet and needs training. Patches is available for adoption or sponsoring. Won’t you consider adopting or sponsoring this beautiful girl and give her a forever loving home or help with her care? Patches was found in an area called “Dogpatch” where she was left abandoned and malnourished. She was picked up by Livestock  and is now safe at Equine Voices.

“Dogpatch” is the nickname given to a rural area of southern Tucson (just south of the Tucson Airport between Old Nogales Highway and South Swan Road) that has been used for many years as a dumping ground for garbage and animals to include horses, both dead and alive. The signs of neglect, overpopulation, and sometimes abuse of domesticated animals are more than apparent to an outsider of this community, but seem accepted or ignored by most of its residents. This is the second horse Equine Voices has helped rescue from “Dogpatch” in a month.

“Patches” now resides at Equine Voices Rescue & Sanctuary with Gulliver and his friends and she is looking for that special someone who would like to adopt or sponsor her.

Age: All Ages    Gender:

Little Miss was rescued by Equine Voices in the fall of 2004 from an auction house in Texas. She was delivered to auction from Manitoba, Canada, and was pregnant with Joy, whom she delivered the following spring. This was a very difficult decision we had to make after we witnessed Little Miss having trouble getting up. Her body has endured so much in the last six months, and as we know, her breathing, coughing, and high temperatures have not improved. Little Miss will always hold a very, very special place in our hearts and souls. She is now free from her suffering. A heartfelt thank you for those of you who helped Little Miss during this time. I know she was grateful, as am I.

Little Miss,
Rest in Peace….

With love, Karen

BEN aka BIG BEN

Age: All Ages    Gender:

Tribute: On the morning of July 20th, we said goodbye to one of the brightest lights of our world. Big Ben gave us the signal that he was ready to make the transition over the Rainbow Bridge. We knew that something was not quite right when he would not budge from the far side of his corral to come in to his regular stall for breakfast. He slowed down his eating and has had several mini strokes recently and the vet believes a brain tumor was also contributing to unilateral blindness and deafness. He is now galloping in the skies with his other friends, Pirate, Helen and many others. His final resting place is in his corral along with Little Miss and Big Bud and where his herd can visit often. He will be remembered as the Gentle Giant that made his rounds in the corral daily until he decided to stop and say goodbye. We are so thankful his “little” friend Ben could spend his birthday with Big Ben the day before. We are certain it brought him peace. Everyone who has ever met him will surely miss his presence, but his memory will forever be in our hearts.

Beginning’s: Ben, a Belgian Draft, came to us from Equine Well Being Rescue in the White Mountains of Arizona.  Equine Well Being thought he might enjoy being around our other big drafts and they were right.  Ben slipped right into the big herd with Gulliver and friends. Please consider sponsoring this big, beautiful, gentle giant.

Taylor

Age: All Ages    Gender:

Smokey Joe

Age: All Ages    Gender:

With a heavy and open heart, WE wanted to share with all of you that on Tuesday June 10th, Smokey Joe was once again set free. Smokey Joe was a free and wild mustang who in his younger days lived on the open range. He was captured by the BLM and sentenced to life in captivity. In his later years, Smokey Joe was starved and neglected, until he came to Equine Voices. Smokey Joe touched many. His gentle spirit and sweet soul had five years of love, daily walks, special supplements, and most of all, all the care he required. Smokey Joe is now running free with all those beautiful equines who shared the sacred space of the sanctuary and all of his mustang friends who also once ran free. Smokey, you will be missed, we love you!

Pirate

Age: All Ages    Gender:

Pirate is a miniature horse with a giant personality.  A victim of divorce, Pirate came to us when his owner could no longer keep him.  The owner asked that we take him as a sanctuary horse and let him live his life out here.  We are happy to have Pirate be part of our herd.  Pirate is 30 years old.

Little Deuce

Age: All Ages    Gender:

My name is Little Deuce! I am approximately 15 years young and was rescued from a slaughter truck in Canada by Equine Voices Rescue & Sanctuary. I am a handsome dun that measures 15 hands high and have been saddle broke for a year.  I know both of my leads, can pivot well, move in response to leg commands, and love to trail ride with or without pony company! I have even started on the barrel pattern, met and mingled with cattle and seen the sights of barrel races and team roping! I behave well in the trailer and will even load for you in the dark.

If I sound like the horse for you, please contact Equine Voices Rescue & Sanctuary at 520-398-2814 to discuss sponsoring me or possible adoption!

 Little Deuce has come a long way with our trainer here at the ranch, see video below.
