The Journey Home-Sanctuary!
Your generosity, along with assistance from the ASPCA & The Ark Watch Foundation has made their "Journey Home" (FREEDOM) possible!

We would like to send you our deepest thanks for your contributions which helped to transport TIER horses to Black Hills Horse Sanctuary in South Dakota and the Duchess Sanctuary in Oregon where they will live out the rest of their lives free from neglect and abuse.

Transportation, health certificates, and vet fees for such an endeavor were costly and with our budgets so tight to cover just feed and everyday care, we were afraid we would miss this great opportunity.

We would also like to thank Celine Myers, founder of the Duchess Sanctuary and Ark Watch Foundation for her hard work in making this effort happen by coordinating with the sanctuaries to get the horses in and transport details! This was endeavor that took months of planning and coordinating on Celine & TIER's part.

Also, we wish to thank Sandi Anderson and her husband Rick for assisting with loading the horses when it was time to send them on their Journey Home!

This is such an important event for TIER and for the horses. We can further focus on our remaining horses, rehabilitation, training, and finding great families to adopt them.

Thank you again for helping make this possible.

7/9/2015 - Journey Home...NEW Picture of the Girls

 


My heart skipped a beat and then swelled with joy when Andrea Wade showed me this picture of the girls at Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary running FREE! I was surprised and delighted to see that they are still together after their arrival 2 years ago. I see they've added a darling buckskin girl to their group. TIER - True Innocents Equine Rescue's profile picture on Facebook was taken the day they were released to roam free at the Sanctuary in May 2013. Thank you Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, ASPCA, Our Donors and Celine Myers for giving them a fantasic life!!!

1/13/2014 - Just received New Pics: Running Free!

It's the girls!  Running Free with new Friends!



Same picture without the names


1/13/2014 - Status Update

Since the 1/11/2013 update, we found out that all but Chino are now out in the Big Country.  Chino has stayed in the home pasture near the visitor center with new friends.  The new group of friends are very calm and he is doing well.

The girls (Autumn, Tigger, Jezzebelle, Mona, Mouse) are out on the Sanctuary in an area of sloping hills, pine woods, two small canyons and a stock pond.  They are traveling with another group that have lived there for some time, so they are doing well.  When given plenty of space horsey disagreements go by the wayside and they settle into the comfort of roaming free.

1/11/2014 - From Black Hills Sanctuary:  I know this is not all of them, I will try to get additional photos to you next week.  As you can see they are now out in the big country enjoying their new lives being "free to roam".

10/30/2013 - Katrina & Sugar Bear Photo Update!

Picture at Duchess Sanctuary taken 10/13/2013.  Katrina certainly looks as if she hasn't missed any meals!  Sugar Bear is looking wonderful!


6/11/2013 - More Photos

Here are some photos after the horses were turned out into the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary house field this weekend.  Here they can stretch their legs, munch some grass, and just learn to roam around.  We can see them from the Visitors Center and Susan can see them from her house.  We are still giving them a bit of hay daily just because they are used to it.







6/11/2013 - Journey Home Update-Freedom!

We are happy to announce that the horses have arrived at their final destination - SANCTUARY!

6/8/2013 Chino (front), Autumn (Left-behind Chino), etc. as they head out to their first taste of freedom.


The Journey Home - Freedom!



The look that these mustangs have in their eyes is one of wonder and confusion. There are seven in the group and they traveled here from California and Nevada together. After years of captivity seeing an open gate must be a mistake. Next they check all around the large pasture outside of the corrals and barns. This gives them a sense of security and if there is a problem they can easily come back into the corral. After around the perimeter they settle down to graze. One of the reasons we want all of the new arrivals to adjust to a period of time close in is that in times of danger they come back here as they know this is the safe zone. Most all of the mustangs on the Sanctuary periodically check out what is happening down here to see if they want to stay for a while in the winter. As soon as the grass starts to green up they are all ready to hit the open range.

5/22/2013 - A Lifetime Home!

It is TIER's hope for every horse that we help that they are safe for the remainder of their lives.  That hope/dream came true for Katrina & Sugar Bear this year thanks to Celine Myers, Ark Watch Foundation, the Duchess Sanctuary, help from the ASPCA via a grant to help with costs of transport and our generous supporters.




 




On 5/22/2013 Katrina & Sugar Bear left TIER to live out her life at the awesome Duchess Sanctuary. 


The Duchess Sanctuary, originally started by Celine Myers, now owned and operated by The Fund for Animals in partnership with The HSUS is an 1120 acre sanctuary outside of Oakland, Oregon, established in 2008 as an oasis for horses in need. 


Sugar Bear will live the rest of her life with Katrina and other horses in grass filled pastures under the watchful eye of Ranch Manager Jennifer Kunz. 


Celine Myers worked diligently for months with TIER to help these girls get to their lifetime home.


Thank you to Marlene Dodge for her care and attention while transporting our girls to their new home at Duchess!
