Micah was rescued within an hour of birth and has been raised here on the ranch the horses own. His mother, Angelica, was one of several mares we rescued from slaughter. Despite her mothers abuse and neglect, Micah is a healthy beautiful gelding with a darling personality. He will be starting under saddle training Spring 2019. He is best friends to Maverick.
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.
