Barbie – Horse Rescue in Puerto Rico

THIS FRAIL, YOUNG, DELICATE, & WEAK MARE HORSE IS NOW UNDER THE CARE OF HOPE4HORSES

  • Name: Barbie

$250.00 raised of $500.00

Barbie was tied without food or care and was rescued much thinner, weak, and delicate than the photos show.

This frail young mare is now in the care of www.DefensaRincon.org/Hope4Horses – She is off a rope, with grass, water, shade and a horse buddy in Rincon Puerto Rico!   We will continue to take and add photos/videos as she recovers. She is in need of a forever home so please contact us if you feel you can give her a great home!

Your donations will provide grain, trimming, teeth floating, and de-wormer. Barbie’s future looks bright and we thank you in advanced for your support.

    • AIBONITO LOST AFTER HURRICANE.  BUT BARBIE LOOKS AMAZING

      Our sanctuary in aibonito can not continue to grow due to the damage hurricane marie caused. Therefore we brought BARBIE and MO back to Rincón.  All this professional transportation costs money so we are asking for more donations and more shares.  Thank you.

    • BARBIE is now living a horse’s dream life in our Sister Sanctuary in Airbonito because of your support!!  Thank you all so much.  We feel short on her total amount raised but not on her happy forever home ending!   Thank you for making it all possible.  Please continue to follow, share and donate – it is because of your support we are able to help these horses.

    • BARBIE is doing great!   Thanks to her Volunteer Handler Jenn and your donations, shares and support.    BARBIE is still for adoption but she has the opportunity to go to our Sister Horse Sanctuary in Airbonito if we rescue another horse that could travel with her.  It is about a 3 hour trip one way and in a trailer it makes more sense and is more comforting to the horses to travel in pairs.     Please keep the donations and shares coming for BARBIE!!!

    • We are excited to update BARBIE .. with the news she will be starting ground training this week.   BARBIE is getting healthy enough to be adopted out and before we do that we need to make sure she is easy to handle!   Keep an eye out for photos and updates …. some videos too.   BARBIE has been so lovely already with just free visits and interactions we are certain good news follows!   Thank you for your support and shares!  www.DefensaRincon.org/Hope4Horses

    • BARBIE has been doing great.  We plan to move her to some easy access land so that volunteers can work with her – to assess her and really start marketing her for adoption!  We wanted her to gain some weight and health before moving towards this step.   Thank you for donating to and sharing BARBIE … …. she would not have had the chances for a beautiful life as she has now without your actions!   www.DefensaRincon.org/Hope4Horses

    • BARBIE is gaining weight little by little.    She just doesn’t have a huge appetite but in our experience that is likely due to not having food always available to her / prior to being rescued.  At a young 2 years old she will make someone a beautiful horse buddy!   As for riding …. we aren’t sure how that will go and ideally we will find her a farm to roam with other animals.   Your donations and shares make all our rescues possible.  But our horse rescues especially appreciate your shares because reaching people who can give a horse a home is huge for us!

    • BARBIE is living a dream-horse-life on a temporary & beautiful grass field piece of land in Rincon.

      BARBIE has 1 horse friend and 1 human friend living with her for now.

      Our goal with BARBIE is to just let her gain some more weight before finding her a forever home.

      BARBIE loves people and interacting with people.  Some describe her as ‘A Big Dog’!!

      This photo is BARBIE who ran across the field to greet Lisa – who BARBIE barely knows!

      This update will repeat a few times so we can get all the photos in from today’s visit.

      Your donations and shares make our Horse Rescue work possible!  Thank you all!

  • BARBIE with her buddy THE OLD WHITE MARE on a beautiful ‘short term donated land home’ in Rincon.    Please share and donate for BARBIE.   We are working on fencing at 2 more long term homes in Rincon – very similar setups.   The horses are off rope (which is unique for horses in Puerto Rico) in nice grass filled fields!   We are only able to rescue horses and run www.DefensaRincon.org/Hope4Horses because of your donations and shares!   Thank you all, Cynthia
