Doc and Ducky (aka Tom)

Aged geldings

 

Saving Baby Equine Charity was asked for assistance to place two aged geldings whose owner could no longer afford to care for them. American Quarterhorse Doc, 28 years old, and his 18-year-old grade pasture mate Tom, had lived in sub-standard conditions for many years. But as these two fellas approach their sunset years, they’ve got the best yet to some! Brenda Lewis and Dave Osage from Another Chance Equine Rescue (ACE Rescue) warmly opened their loving arms to BOTH geldings, allowing them to remain together! We were absolutely thrilled to provide not only professional transport for the 300-mile trip from West Michigan to ACE Rescue in Ohio, but also a donation towards their daily needs and care.

 

Doc and Tom - renamed Ducky as ACE Rescue already has a Tom! – arrived safely to their new home on November 19, 2014. Brenda kept them together in a small arena the first night, allowing the boys to settle in together. They are slowly being introduced to other ACE Rescue horses, increasing their circle of “friends”. On November 28, Saving Baby Equine Charity’s co-founder and Executive Director Joy Aten made the 10-hour round trip to ACE Rescue to see Doc and Ducky and finally meet Brenda, Dave, and some wonderful ACE Rescue volunteers in person. It was a great day…seeing these two old geldings in their loving, safe new home and at last giving Brenda and Dave the big bear hugs Joy had been longing to give them since they graciously gave Doc and Ducky a wonderful new life! THANK YOU ACE Rescue and Saving Baby Equine Charity supporters!

 

Doc - he might be an old fella, but he's as cute as a yearling colt!
