Update 5/9/16: MVHR bought Jackie at auction in May of 2014 to keep her from slaughter. Emaciated and with only one eye, she was the poster child for rescue. In spite of her own terrible condition, Jackie was a steadfast friend to her corral mate Rosie, who was emaciated and also terrified. Turns our Rosie was pregnant, and gave birth to a colt just weeks after being kept from slaughter. Jackie was the good Auntie throughout her recovery, and helped raise little Indie, giving mama Rosie breaks from the little guy as needed. Jackie’s nurturing nature continues, and now that her nannying is over, she is helping with Equine Assisted Learning and Therapies and Riding Lessons here at MVHR! Thanks to Vail Valley Cares, she was sponsored in 2015 and again in 2016 to allow her to pilot that program.....and she met thousands of people!  Looking forward to more fun games with people!

Sponsored 9/3/15: A twenty-something one-eyed mare bought at auction in 2014, Jackie is trying out a new task offering Equine Assisted learning and therapies at MVHR!  As the “pilot” in this pilot program, stay tuned to see her in action! Thank you Vail Valley Cares for sponsoring Jackie and allowing her to stay with MVHR to participate in Equine Assisted Learning and Therapies!
