Cassie

Cassie
UPDATE: March 2019:  Oh how we wish Cassie could talk. She came to CHANGE during the Tubbs Fire in October 2017. At age 24, this Arabian-Morgan type mare still has a lot of years ahead of her. Cassie is just lovely. Solid manners, uncomplicated, sensitive describes this lovely girl. She has been around the block. She is easy to lead, tie, brush, pick her feet, and wash her legs.

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.

UPDATE: April 2019:  Just 12 years old, Ethel is sweet and built like a brick house. She’s also a good girl when being tied, groomed and having her feet cleaned.

Wally (#Cloverdale12)
UPDATE April 2019: Wally is a lucky horse! Thanks to special donations made to CHANGE, Wally is going to spend 30 to 60 days at a trainer to assess his riding ability.  We have great hopes for him and expect that he will be a star at the trainer's. Wally is a calm, quiet and gentle horse but he is need of an adopter who will help to continue the solid foundation of training that he has received at CHANGE.  He is eager to learn- but is a sensitive fella. The foster barn reports that he listens to commands and clearly tries to please. He is sound and has excellent conformation... Read More
