We intercepted this beauty, a draft cross, at auction to prevent her from landing in the slaughter pipeline. At 8 years old, she's both gentle and smart. Currently under evaluation, it's clear that she was not treated kindly but is still eager to please. Her name Tehya is Native American for precious and this girl is most definitely precious. Tehya needs a sponsor!
Livy is a Dun filly who's rescue home fell through when she was just four months old. We were asked to give her a safe place to land and how could we refuse this face? Livy's now over two years old and has come a long way. Smart and sweet, her training is progressing nicely and she'll soon be available for a forever home. Sponsored by David Usher.
Tasha is a sweet sorrel mare who was rescued along with her young foal, Tilly. We offered a rescue home for Tasha and Tilly but funds were not raised in time. Tasha was set to be separated from her foal, but at the last minute a horse angel found a way to give her a second chance at life. Tasha was fearful of humans upon arriving at the ranch, but she's come a long way. Given the trauma in her past, Tasha is best suited as a companion horse and requires an experienced home. Available for adoption or sanctuary.
Tilly and her mama, Tasha, found themselves purchased at auction by a kill buyer. We were approached by good samaritans who bailed her and her mama, and we offered them a soft place to land. Tilly's a sweet and sassy three-year-old who's making great progress in her training. Available for adoption
Valor was only 3 months old when he and his mama, Victory, were purchased at auction by a kill buyer. Babies in that situation face illness and the risk of injury is high. We offered a rescue home to Valor and his mama, and they came to Allegiance Ranch in June 2017. Valor was very ill and we weren't sure he would make it, but he's a gorgeous young gelding making great progress in his training. He is one of the permanent residents at the ranch.

Victory and her foal (Valor) were very ill when they arrived at Allegiance Ranch. We nursed them to health and with patience and love, Victory is on her way to being a well trained horse. At five years old, she's gentle, strong, and beautiful. Victory is a permanent resident at the ranch and spends time with veterans and first responders. Available for sponsorship.
Mariposa is a lovely grey Arabian who was abandoned, tied to a post and left to die. We found her through Colorado Horse Rescue and she's part of our forever herd. Mariposa means butterfly in Spanish and she is as unique and beautiful as her namesake.
Georgie and Gizmo
These mini-donkeys are as cute as they can be and serve as the Allegiance Ranch mascots. When they first arrived at the ranch they were afraid of people and would run if you tried to touch them. Now they're equal parts sweet and ornery, but literally eating out of our hands. Available for Sponsorship.
We were looking for a horse and happened upon another rescue organization by chance. There we found Montez who was said to have been a ranch horse in Oklahoma, but at 16 years old was "all washed up". To our eyes he was perfect, and now he's part of our forever herd and will serve as a therapy horse. Montez means mountain in Spanish and he is the bedrock of our herd.
Shoshone was lucky to have been in a safe and loving home before coming to Allegiance Ranch. Her owner, however, was retiring, moving out of state and could no longer keep her. He wanted a place for her where she would be loved and have a purpose. We welcome her to our herd with open arms and she's already making a positive impact as part of our veteran programs. Shoshone needs a sponsor!
In Memoriam: Kaine
We were very sad to lose Kaine in April 2018. He was quite the character! When he was abandoned late last summer (2017), a multitude of horse angels saw fit to save him but he had nowhere to go. Allegiance Ranch gave him a soft place to land. Kaine was at least 300 pounds underweight when he arrived and dealing with Cushings disease. Kaine rebounded for several months and we gave him lots of love and groceries, but in the end he wasn't able to fight the deterioration caused by the disease. He was humanely euthanized on April 30, 2018.
