McGarrah was born and raised here on the ranch that the horses own. Her mother, Darla, was one of several mares we rescued from slaughter. Despite her mothers abuse and neglect, McGarrah is a healthy beautiful little foal with a darling personality. She will be starting under saddle training Spring 2019.
Meet Our New Filly:
McGarrah will make her first (albeit limited) public appearance at her baby shower during the ASPCA Help A Horse Day on Saturday, April 26th at Red Bucket Equine Rescue from 11:00am- 3:00pm. There will be a lovely light luncheon compliments of the Red Bucket Craft Guild, and served by the Jr. Reds. There will be tours of Red Bucket as well as several workshops, including a session on gentling the foals of feral mares. Space is limited and reservations are required, we will not be able to accommodate walk-in visitors. Please confirm attendance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to introducing our new family member to you and yours!
Red Bucket Equine Rescue #243- McGarrah
Darla has proven herself to not only be a survivor….having survived the perils of starvation and the foreboding threat of slaughter, but also to be a very good mother. Darla’s miracle, a petite bay filly named McGarrah will not only have an April 17th birthday, but many birthdays in which we will not only celebrate her life….but that her life is possible. Rather than a perilous ending, this precious and innocent baby will be gentled…and gently loved, trained, and provided a true second chance, and a forever home…and gratefully, she will never know that her fate was gently redirected to a life of love and happiness. Happy birthday little girl…and job well done, Darla!
Saturday at the ASPCA Help A Horse Day, little 9 day old McGarrah stole the show. A major thrust of The Red Bucket participation was to educate people on the plight of the unwanted horse. We definitely experienced alignment from our 150 plus guests that these little lives must be both respected and protected. Our very own little McGarrah delighted our new friends by demonstrating her “tricks”, delighting her onlookers with baby bucks, sliding stops, her VERY healthy nursing technique….and of course….her power naps! We send a huge thank you to all those who supported the day, and of course to the ASPCA for making this important event possible.
