Kami was born and raised here on the ranch the horses own. Her mother, Marlee, was one of several mares we rescued from slaughter. Despite her mothers abuse and neglect, Kami is a healthy beautiful marked chestnut foal with a darling personality. She will be starting under saddle training in Spring 2019.
Facebook Welcome – Happy Birthday:
Red Bucket Equine Rescue #244- Kamerick (AKA Kami):
Our Kami-Corder has captured a shot of 18 hour old little Kami stepping out onto her sun porch under the watchful eye of her momma Marlee (and the close supervision of the Red Riding Hoods)…. The fresh air and sunlight exposed a light sprinkling of freckles across Kami’s pink velvety muzzle as she took her first wobbly and tentative baby steps into her life as a “wanted horse”. Marlee, who continues to amaze us with her stoic and guarded protection of her baby has never laid down the entire time that she has been with us at Red Bucket other than to give birth and life to her foal. Marlee seems grateful for the safety of her stall, the endless supply of fresh hay, her misters….and her baby who has been given a second chance. We want to express our appreciation for the support, friendship, and after hour counsel of Kami’s God Mother our dear friend, Dr. Adrienne Moore…words are not enough, but THANK YOU!
With four newly minted and perfectly healthy little foals scampering, playing, bucking, and frolicking around Red Bucket, it is easy to get lost in all that adorable fun. McGarrah, Kami, Micah, and Mathe are completely distracting during their waking hours, and when they are curled up (or in Mathe’s case completely stretched out) they have the ability to completely derail our entire operation, as we cannot take our eyes off of what has presented itself to us as a miracle. We are however reminded of perhaps what is even more magical…their mothers who have endured terror, starvation, and the horrors of impending slaughter to
deliver, nurture…and love their babies. Yes, we have a tremendous commitment to these foals, who will never know the unspeakable abuse that their mothers survived in order to bring them life, and we will remain supremely dedicated to these glorious mares who demonstrate devotion at a level that is spellbinding. Red Bucket celebrates Darcy, Marlee, Angelica, Darcey, and little orphan Roulettes mother…wherever she might be.
