Herd It Here
Maslena Rescue Ranch has been awarded the Gelding Grant by the Horse Plus Humane Society (www.horseplushumanesociety.org).

The Richard Eeds Show is a popular local events and news program hosted by the well respected Richard Eeds and promoted on SanteFe.com. On December 28, 2021, Jeff was a guest on the program to talk about the ranch, the mission and why the harmony here just works. We are proud of Jeff for helping tell our story and bring a little happiness to the listening audience.

“It’s an interesting setup, having multiple species living together,” said Alexanda Eckhoff, field veterinarian for the New Mexico Livestock Board. “It would be great if humans could get along so well.”
Eckhoff was at Masleña earlier this month, inspecting the sanctuary to see if it qualifies to be certified as an official state equine rescue facility.
Tori made a promise to a special hinny that no distance or time could break. Read the heart-warming story about a love that will last a lifetime.
Winter is a beautiful painted mare that came to Masleña Rescue Foundation several years ago. She wasn’t donated, but the result of Jeff’s direct intervention. Winter, blinded in one eye, was destined for the Mexican rodeo to be used as entertainment. Her disability made her “disposable” and an ideal candidate for abusive forms of tripping, roping and other rodeo activities that have been outlawed in other countries. When Jeff saw her he decided to immediately intervene and bring her to the sanctuary.
Masleña Rescue Foundation is now a certified non-profit charity.
