Throwback Thursday: Cotton and Candy

I’ll never forget the day I came home and found these precious babies had been tossed in the yard out front. I’ll never understand how someone could just toss their puppies into someone’s yard with no regard for the dogs or the person who they are dumping them on. Dumping animals is illegal and irresponsible. Thankfully I’m not the kind of person who would do that so we took care of this special brother and sister pair. We named them Cotton and Candy due to their fluffy white coats and sweet personalities. Candy, the all white female, was deaf and her brother, Cotton was her ears and her protector. Thankfully a special family understood their special bond and adopted them together. Special people like those who adopt dogs like Cotton and Candy make the world a better place. We were thankful they found Tbar and these two special babies. Cotton N Candy

Throwback Thursday: Cooper

This sweet hound dog is named Cooper in his new life with his forever family. When he came to Tbar we called him Blue and then Trooper for his strength in recovery. He endured and recovered from a broken leg and a terrible skin condition. It seemed that he’d never be happy again until he met the Silvey family. They adopted him despite his lack of hair in some places. They helped his soul heal. One of the best stories his new Mom tells is how he will now roll down a hill for pure joy. What a special boy and such a special family. Like this boy’s facebook post to show your support for special families who adopt special pets despite their differences.

In the bottom picture Cooper’s rehab foster Mom is on the left and Cooper’s adoptive Mom is on the right for a happy reunion.

TBT – Pony


Here is a pony being ridden in his new foster home. He was taken in about 8  years ago. They were called the Welsch Mountain Ponies and none of them were rideable or touchable. Thanks to this loving adoption home this pony is well trained and healthy and happy now!

Throwback Thursday – Dancer

Our #ThrowbackThursday animal is also our Pet of the Week! Dancer was removed from his owner by law enforcement. He had been left in a stall was starving and had overgrown hooves. His road to recovery included special farrier work, lots of nutrition and a month of natural horsemanship training by Juan Vendrell of TC Ranch Ventures. Now he accepts a saddle and rider and is ready to finish his training. If you want to know more about adopting Dancer email

Throwback Thursday – Sophie / Trixie

This sweet dog was found as a stray. She had a broken leg that healed on it’s own forming a new joint where the fracture had destroyed the old one. She recovered in rescue but didn’t completely heal until she was adopted and learned the joys of life from Carlie. Thank you Carlie for taking in this special girl and giving her the life she deserves!Trixie TBT

Throwback Thursday – Cartier

Sometimes we take in neglected horses and end up with a surprise. That’s what happened when Lizzy gave birth to this beautiful filly. Cartier is now three years old, has had lots of ground work and accepts a saddle. If you’re interested in a horse with a great start, Cartier is the one for you! Cartier TBT

Throwback Thursday – Deuce

This weeks TBT picture is Deuce. When he came to Tbar he was so skinny and sick we weren’t sure he’d survive. We were able to help him gain weight but he kept to himself and seemed closed off from horses and people. Then he met AJ!

Thank you AJ Greer for helping Deuce learn to trust again and thank you Olivia Moore for capturing that fairy tail ending in this picture! These are the happy endings that remind us of what rescue is all about!
