Skyline Jet & Banjo Jet
TIER for adoption fee & information
were contacted by a compassionate lady regarding a PMU mare (possibly
in foal) that needs a home. The mare is one of many in Canada
that would most likely be sent to slaughter if a buyer and a home
could not be found. We explained that at this time we were not
in a financial position to purchase/ transport/ Coggins any PMU
horses, and that all our funds are earmarked for feed for our
current rescues. This wonderful lady has already arranged to take
in several mares and indicated she was willing to pay the costs
involved to get her here if we could take her in and find her
a home. This lady reached out to get this mare out of harm’s

- We only had the one picture of Jet which showed her left side.
I had wondered what kind of markings she might have on her right
side. Well, today we received her registration papers which have
a picture of her as a wee tiny baby AND it shows her right side!!
here to see her registration papers.
just the cutest baby?? Of course, she is now a lovely full grown
girl and we are anxiously awaiting her arrival in the next few
- The pregnant PMU mare, Skyline Jet arrived at TIER a couple
weeks ago. She is filling out and shedding like crazy!! We had
hoped to have her feet done as they are really in need of a trim.
Michael Lagrone, the barefoot trimmer from Oklahoma, was here
and we attempted to address Jet’s feet. It was raining,
mud up to your ankles and Jet let us know that picking up her
feet wasn’t something she is used to!! Since conditions
were not the best, it was decided to wait until things dry out
before we try again. We didn’t want Jet or Michael hurt
as it seems that Jet has not had her feet handled in the past.
When the announcement
went out that Jet was coming and was available for adoption right
away, we had two people who were adamant that they wanted to give
Jet and her soon to be baby a home. Now that she is here, neither
of these people have returned phone calls or e-mails letting them
know that she is waiting to go to a new home.
to find a home ASAP as she is likely to foal in April.
Jet is a
sweet mare, but it is obvious that she has not been handled a
whole lot. She does lead, but is a little confused on backing
up, etc., but she learns quickly. She is unaccustomed to eating
carrots or other treats. She is currently being fed Pawier vitamins,
pellets, Timothy, Orchard & alfalfa hay. She is a petite girl,
although I have not measured her, I don’t think she is over
15 hands, if that!
needs to find a home ASAP!

wait for updates of their progress! Congratulations Kristy &
- Guess what we did last night?? Kristi's kids ages 10 and 6 rode
Jet! We just ponied them around on her bareback, she is a great
babysitter. The kids fight over who's horse she really is, it
is hilarious! Kristi groomed her up really nice and braided her
tail, she looks good. She is enjoying her rice Bran that she just
started on too... Her peeing issue is much better now... Jo Jo
will begin taking a bit in her mouth and will be lunged with a
saddle on next week. I'll let you know how that goes :) Her personality
comes out more and more....She is a very cute brat!
