LEVI
TIER was recently contacted by Riverside County Department of Animal Services regarding the stallions being housed at the San Jacinto facility. September 2017 Animal Services once more received a report of horse neglect at the same property Iris & Maisie came from. The horses were at the property during the March 2016 investigation. However, they were in much better condition than the other 23 seized by officers last year and were allowed to remain at that time. After a new report of neglect this year, the owner relinquished ownership of all the now underweight Thoroughbreds.

That said, TIER has taken in ID#A1393320 a 10 yr. old gray stallion.

We have identified this horse via the Jockey Club and his registered name is Gray Facts.

THANK YOU to Dana S. for making the journey with me to San Jacinto to pick him up. Dana will also be fostering this boy for a time. He will be having his feet done on Tuesday and we have an appointment to have him gelded on Wednesday once we can arrange transport. He will also have an overall health checkup at that time. He is underweight and not in the best condition at the moment. Just give him time and I am sure he will be stunning!

10/19/2017 - Newest Gelding with a NEW Barn Name: LEVI

Huge thanks to Ingrid L. for transporting Gray Facts, now known as Levi, all the way to our vet yesterday and bringing him back to his Foster location this morning. Due to the heat, traffic and being gelded, we thought it was best for Levi to stay overnight and be transported back this morning when it was cooler. THANK YOU INGRID L.




WOW, Thank you to EVERYONE that came up with Barn Name suggestions. There were so many to choose from it was mind-boggling. But, then again, my mind is easily boggled! All the suggestions were really good and it took us some time to settle on the name Levi.



He had his long overdue for a trim feet taken care of the day before the surgery and was ouchy on hard ground. Good thing his Foster Mom has such a nice/soft stall for him. He will be on Uniprim antibiotics for a bit, hosed and exercised daily to make sure the incisions drain, and to keep swelling down.


Levi sure was glad to get back to familiar ground. As soon as he unloaded from the trailer he started walking at a pretty good clip back to his stall. When his halter was removed he made a beeline for his stall.



10/16/2017 - A STALLION?? !!


We have identified this via the Jockey Club and his registered name is Gray Facts.  His Great Grandsire on his sire's (Faculty) side was Sham who came in 2nd behind Secretariat in the 99th running of the Kentucky Derby, May 5, 1973.
 
His grandsire on his Dam's (Sweet Character) side was Bold Bidder.  He was an outstanding stallion. The sire of fifty-three stakes winners, including two Kentucky Derby winners.  Cannonade & Spectacular Bid.
