HOW DO THEY BECOME RESCUES
Horses come to Shadarobah in a variety of ways:
Just getting them loaded on the trailer is a task in itself. Next we are ask them to enter a big barn full of horses & faces they've never seen! First and foremost we focus on making them feel safe and build a relationship of trust.
The Next Steps:
Assessment performed by Rescue Personnel
Determine necessary food regimen
Hoof Assessment and Treatment
Physical Therapist Evaluation – necessary for more than 80%
WHILE AT RESCUE
Most of the horses that come to Shadarobah have lost trust in humans and suffer from socialization issues. We focus on integrating them into a pasture group, handling them regularly, helping them to rebuild a sense of confidence and level of trust. Additionally we have a large number of severe neglect & malnourishment cases. We concentrate on getting them healthy and up to appropriate weight levels - which can be a slow gradual process.

Nothing we do could be accomplished without our wonderful donors and supporters. While medical & care professionals provide treatment and services at deeply discounted rates, the cost of care is still high and donations are needed.
