Daphne

5 y.o. Welsh Pony Mare

Daphne is an adorable Welsh pony mare who had a rough start in life. She grew up without handling or care; this included complete neglect of her feet. Once in the CHANGE program, Daphne received all the care she needed, and she impressed everyone with her will to learn and get better as her abscessed feet were causing her tremendous pain. While her feet will always need special attention, Daphne in many ways has gone on to become a “normal” pony, and she will only get better as her education continues. She... Read More

Cassie

Cassie
Cassie is a small (14.2-ish) very cute mare (possibly Arab/Morgan). She came to us during the Santa Rosa fires last year. Our vet estimates her age at around 23-24, but she does not look or act like an older horse. Cassie is very smart and responsive, people oriented and very light on her feet with great ground manners.

The Cloverdale 12

As you may have heard, CHANGE recently had the largest intake in the history of the organization. On March 23, 2018, our field services coordinator and the president of our board of directors, Heather Bailey, received a call from Sonoma County Animal Services that they would be executing a seizure of 12 horses from a farm outside of Cloverdale.

Heather sprang into action, calling up CHANGE's network of volunteer haulers and foster barns, and coordinating with law enforcement. 

Annie (#Cloverdale12)

Annie (#Cloverdale12)
12 year old
Chestnut QH Mare
Annie is a small chestnut quarter type mare, 12 years old, with a lot of personality and a lot of heart. She is trots right up to the gate to meet visitors and is curious albeit still a bit unsure about her new world. When encountering questions she doesn’t know the answers to yet, she can still react a bit strongly. Annie, as are most other Cloverdale 12 mares, is struggling with her skin a bit after a lice infestation and other problems due to her previous living conditions. Overall, she is a very sweet mare who wants to please... Read More

Hallie (#Cloverdale12)
16 years old
Chestnut (with star) QH Mare
Hallie is small chestnut quarter type mare with a star, estimated to be around 16 years old. Hallie seems to have some life experience as she was familiar with most normal care procedures, although she was not thrilled about her initial trailer ride. She is a very sweet girl and thriving in her foster home. Hallie has had her dental work and vaccinations, and is ready for adoption.

Cocoa (#Cloverdale12)

Cocoa (#Cloverdale12)
18 years old
Bay QH Mare
Cocoa is a Quarter Horse mare, approximately 18 years old. She relishes all the care she is receiving and diligently cleans up all her food. She’s struggled a bit with both skin issues due to the previous living conditions as well as stocking up and discomfort in her hind legs, but it's difficult to say at this time whether it’s a leg problem or a skin problem. She leads and ties like a pro and is grateful for any and all attention. Her body says she’s been a mom multiple times, but she’s ready for a life that’s just about her. 

Amber (#Cloverdale12)

Amber (#Cloverdale12)
16 years old
Chestnut QH Mare with Blaze
Amber is a super flashy chestnut Quarter Horse, about 16 years old, and she too has had a hard time with her skin. But when she heals up? She is going to be a true beauty. She’s taken on all of her care like a pro, and she still has a Caslick, testament to a long life as a broodmare. She soaks up affection like a sponge and just wants to cuddle. She’ll be ready to be pampered very soon. 

Poppy (#Cloverdale12)

Poppy (#Cloverdale12)
12 years old
Chestnut and White Paint Mare
Poppy was very thin on intake and has struggled with her skin, but she’s blossoming into a beautiful copper chestnut and white mare, estimated about 12 years old. We knew she felt safe when she started napping in her foster home, finding a warm spot in the sun to curl up and snooze. Poppy has proven to be tolerant and kind, and seeks attention from her foster. 

Lakota (#Cloverdale12)

Lakota (#Cloverdale12)
12 years old
Registered Buckskin and White Paint Mare
Lakota is a gorgeous 12 yo registered buckskin and white Paint mare. Lakota loaded up easily, but then struggled to figure out how to back out at her foster home, proving she hasn’t had a lot of life experience. But, after only a few days in her foster, she was tying and being bathed and groomed like a champ. She has proven to be willing to work hard to figure out what is being asked of her and be a good girl. She has some old scars on her body as testament to tough times, but there are only good things... Read More

Shirley (#Cloverdale12)

Shirley (#Cloverdale12)
25 years old
Bay QH Mare
Shirley is the grandma of the group. At about 25, this bay Quarter Horse mare is still full of life. She has the best manners, and a photo from her past that has surface shows her being ridden by a pile of tiny children. Given her age, she’s looking for a nice, retired life, but she’s in pretty good shape and is polite and kind in all situations.

Katie (#Cloverdale12)

Katie (#Cloverdale12)
12 years old
Bay Pinto Mare
Katie is a darling bay pinto, about 12 years old. We strongly suspect she was born on the property and she has struggled a little bit with the change in geography, relying heavily on the guidance of Shirley in her foster home to feel settled. She’s terribly sweet and wants to please, but is a little more uncertain about this new life and all its experiences. But once she trusts her new person, you will have a companion for life. 

Gabby (#Cloverdale12)

Gabby (#Cloverdale12)
14 years old
"Dunalino" QH
Gabby is a 14-year-old “dunalino” Quarter Horse mare. She is struggling quite a but with skin problems due to the previous neglect and she is sloughing her hair pretty dramatically, but she is a bright and excellent patient. She has loved her medicated baths, provided the water is nice and warm. She is a diva in the making, so watch out world!

Ethel (#Cloverdale12)

Ethel (#Cloverdale12)
12 years old
Pinto Mare
Ethel is a 12-year-old pinto mare. She was one of the thinnest of the Cloverdale 12. Every bone stood out under her coat, but she walked right up to her rescuers and hopped in the trailer at first asking. She wasn’t too sure about baths at first, but she too loves warm water, and she will leave her food to get a grooming. She loves being groomed so much she likes to return the favor and groom the human back, turning her head to rub you with her lips while being brushed.

Wally (#Cloverdale12) On medical hold

Wally (#Cloverdale12) On medical hold
12 years old
Paint Stallion
Wally is a 12-year-old Paint stallion with a gorgeous marbled eye. He hasn’t had a lot of life experience and had likely never been anywhere before we got him out, but he tries incredibly hard to please. Thanks to an assist from the folks at the American Paint Horse Association, we know his pedigree, though he was never registered. Wally suffered from seriously uncared for feet, and has needed a fair bit of work to get them turned around (as proof it had been awhile, he was clearly confused by being asked to hold up a hoof and get...

Fred (#Cloverdale12) On medical hold
19 years old
Registered Paint Stallion
Fred is a 19-year-old registered Paint stallion. This horse just exudes class and kindness. He is a complete gentleman at all times, even in the difficult circumstances of his rescue. He has a gentle, calm spirit and the most beautiful head and eye you’ve ever seen. His feet needed a lot of help as they were long and terribly misshapen. He also had some truly epic dreadlocks in his past-the-shoulder mane. But he has loved getting bathed and pampered again, and stood happily to have the dreadlocks carefully combed out.... Read More
