We want to thank all the people who have come out to our fireworks booth with donations for Ciara. We really appreciate your support for this sweet mare. Right now Ciara seems to be depressed. She is eating and drinking enough, but we would like to see her eating more. She still has to stay inside during the day due to her sunburn, but at night we are putting her in the pasture next to Jack and Jill, the donkeys, and that has helped. She seems to like being at the fence near Jack. He is a sweet boy who has helped other horses. She is still very weak. When she is stronger we will have her rechecked by Sweet River Equine Clinic. Everyone who has worked with her has fallen in love. We will continue to keep you posted. If you would like to make a donation for her care you can go to our website for information on how to donate, or you can come see us at our fireworks booth. We are open 10am - 10 pm and located in the 7/11 parking lot at 1138 W F Street in Oakdale.

We want to say a huge thank you to Equine Body Basics and Turlock Feed for their donation of 1 1/2 pallets of shavings for Ciara. Not only did they donate, but Adiana Correia, owner of Equine Body Basics, delivered the shavings to us! Ciara came out to say thank you. She is very happy to have a comfy stall.

Do you have a business and want to find a creative way to get new customers? How about making a donation to our first annual Benefit Barn Bash. There will be a silent auction to help raise funds. We are looking for donations of items for the auction. As a thank you for your support we will put your business cards, or other information such as a flyer out at the event. Plus we will mention you here on our website and on our Facebook page for the rest of the year.
Another way to help our horses and advertise your business is to purchase a table at the Benefit Barn Bash. We will decorate it with your business information. A donation of $250.00 will purchase a table that seats eight people.
Tickets for the Benefit Barn Bash are $35.00 per person if tickets are purchased in advance. There will be a limited number of tickets available at the door for $40.00 per person.
Tickets can be purchased now by clicking on the donate button and put Benefit Barn Bash tickets and the number of tickets you are purchasing in the memo box.
We'd like to thank the following businesses that have already purchased tables: Mr Equipment in Escalon, Celtic Equipment in Modesto, Quality Service Inc in Escalon, Brunn & Flynn in Modesto, Grossi Fabrication Inc in Hughson, Quality Well Drillers in Atwater, and Sisk Tallow Recycling in Turlock.

Adriana with Ciara
We want to introduce you to Ciara. Sometimes people call us to report on a horse they see that looks like it is being neglected or abused and we advise them to call animal control. This story shows why that is such an important step. These are pictures of Ciara. She came to us this week after a Good Samaritan rescued her from her abusers. But by doing that the abusers were "let off the hook". You see animal control does a good job at collecting evidence and building a case against abusers so they can not do it again. When we go around that step we put future horses in danger. If there is no case, the abuser can continue to take in animals.
What this Good Samaritan did for Ciara was an amazing deed. We would like to use this situation as an example for the public in the future. She did right by Ciara in every way she possibly could.
It is heart breaking to see horses in this condition. As horse lovers people want to help, but without the knowledge on how to feed a horse to get them back to their proper weight they can do more harm. We work with animal control and local vets to ensure abusers don't get off the hook and to ensure the horses are rehabilitated properly.
Education is part of our mission. We educate the public on how to handle situations when they believe a horse is being abused or neglected.
Now we have Ciara. She is safe, but has a long rehabilitation ahead. We will do our best to bring her back to good health. When we get horses that look like Ciara we hold our breath and pray they will make it as we do all we can to bring them back to health. She is 4 years old, 15.1 hands and only weighs 685 lbs. She will need vet care, lots of food and shavings for bedding because she has no padding. She could use a sponsor, or two... You can go to our website www.oakdaleequinerescue.org to sign up as a sponsor. You can also call Oakdale Feed at 209-847-0307 and make a donation to our account in her name.
We have been asking you to share the lists of some of the horses we have listed as available for adoption. Can you share Ciara's story? Educating people what to do when you see abuse is important. There is a lot more of Ciara's story. We will keep you updated as best we can.
