“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.

A Filly Named WINTER – aiding in recovery

  • by

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.
