Today was Cheyenne’s day. Before Cheyenne came to us she had gotten caught in a fence and injured her leg. Her owners were unable to care for it properly, and when she came to us she had some vet wrap that was tightly wrapped around her leg that had to be removed as it was cutting off her circulation.

At the new facility everything is going great. The horses are really enjoying the wide open spaces. Magic says “Hello” while he had his breakfast this morning.
This morning Regent was loaded up into the trailer for the long trip to his new home. He had no idea where he was going, but he knew it was going to be somewhere safe. Jason and Larry were making the trip with Regent today.
This morning Joey was being loaded up into the trailer. He was adopted yesterday, and today was the start to the journey to his home.
There was a lot of action today. The last of the horses loaded up into the big trailer for the short ride over to the new rescue. It was Dottie and Macho Man’s turn to move out to the new property. Jason and Tawnee say they will miss them, but know they will enjoy being loved on at the new facility.

Dear Friends of NorCal Equine Rescue,
NorCal Equine Rescue has come so far since our founders rescued that first horse from an auction back in 2003. Since that seemingly insignificant day so long ago, over 1,200 horses, ponies, minis, mules and donkeys have come through our open gate and into our loving hearts.
the last gift instead of turning those horses away. Humane euthanasia is truly the last gift of kindness for those horses instead of turning a blind eye as if they never existed as they are trucked off to slaughter.
The name is very important and we need you ideas. We do not want to be geographically limited in our name, as we rescue far beyond northern California, “NorCal” is no longer relevant to our name. Equine is an excellent identifier of which kinds of animals we rescue, but unfortunately many people are unfamiliar with the term “equine” and are confused as to what it means. Equine must be replaced with horse. Rescue will be replaced with Humane Society. Another important aspect of the name is it must sound official and authoritative.
An example of the kinds of names we are not looking for are “Happy Carrots Humane Society,” “Green Acres
Humane Society” or “NorCal Equine Humane Society of Oroville.”
There are three words that need to be in the name: “Horse, Humane, Society” not necessarily in that
order. We can have up to 4-5 words, particularly if the acronym is pleasing, so please contact us with your suggestions! It is you, our supporters, who have enabled NorCal Equine Rescue to become what it is
today, and we want you to continue being an integral part of what it is to become.

Jason & Tawnee Preisner, founders
