Our Rescues Tehya 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 although it’s clear she was not treated kindly in her previous life. We believe she’ll be a wonderful addition to our Veteran riding programs. We named her Tehya which is Native American for “precious” and this girl is most definitely precious. Tehya needs a sponsor! Livy is a Dun Roan 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 almost three 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. Sponsored by Sherri Woodruff. 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 made great progress in her training and has over 20 rides under her belt. 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. Sponsored by Bridget Bray and Alex Tedeschi 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 six years old, she’s gentle, strong, and beautiful. Victory is a permanent resident at the ranch and spends time with veterans and first responders. Victory needs a sponsor! 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. Gizmo and Georgie 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. Gizmo and Georgie need sponsors! Montez 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. Montez is sponsored by The Timmons Family Summer is a Mustang/Draft cross from the Sand Wash Basin herd in Colorado. She is a beautiful 21 year old and serves as a riding horse in our Veteran programs. Two Socks came to us when his loving owner of 29 years could no longer care for him. We retired him from work but he enjoys being groomed and loved on. He’s a sweet and grumpy old guy, and a favorite of everyone at Allegiance Ranch. Two Socks is currently living in a foster home as a companion horse. IN MEMORIAM We were heartbroken to help Shoshone over the rainbow bridge. During her time at Allegiance Ranch she made a lasting impact on all who spent time with her, including our community members, veterans, and children. She did it all, from working with veterans during horsemanship clinics, supporting children learning to ride, riding in the 4th of July Parade, and standing quietly for new volunteers learning to groom. Shoshone was sweet, sassy, and larger than life and we’ll forever miss her. IN MEMORIAM We were very sad to lose Kaine in April 2018. He was quite the character! When he was abandoned in the summer of 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.
