On Aug. 27th of 2014, Hope, one of two pregnant Mustang mares saved from the slaughter truck, gave birth to a strong and healthy filly. She immediately captured the hearts of everyone with her spitfire personality and fear of nothing. A naming contest was held, via Facebook, for this little Mustang filly and from this she was dubbed Charity.
Charity, by definition, means "the voluntary giving of help to those in need" and it was because of the charity of so many kind-hearted people that this little filly was able to come into the world. She is truly a symbol of what animal rescue stands for.
Charity is a testament to the kind of environment we seek to foster here at End of the Trail Rescue, Inc. She has never known the abuse, neglect, and/or cruelty that brings so many of our residents to us. This little girl is cared for and trained by loving staff and volunteers who make every interaction she has with people a positive one. This has rewarded us with a loving, confident, and curious mare. She is afraid of nothing and no one and loves everyone she meets.
Charity is now halter and lead trained, and picks up her feet for grooming. A joy to handle, the young mare has learned her ground manners and how to lunge, back, disengage and accept blanket, saddles and anything else on her back. Charity is not very large but is well built and sure footed, as is typical of Mustangs.
Charity is currently up for adoption to someone with experience training young horses. Once her training is complete she will be adoptable under our regular guidelines.
