Arty and Annie get a HOME!

Arty and Annie - full siblings - sent to auction by their aging breeder and owner. We so wanted them to stay together...

SAFER won the bid on them and then got them vetted with shots and dentals, wormers and trims. All thanks to the folks that support our work with their checks and paypals!!

Thanks to our Fosters - Tom Ramos and then Cindy Messick - we were able to house them and trial them under saddle - and get them ready to show well to adopters.

They went to a wonderful previous adopter! The same family that adopted Rosie -at 29 - 6 years ago. See them all three NOW together! HERE


This is Rosie at 35 greeting Arty in his new pasture home.

SAFER has started 2017 on the run! We are currently caring for 2 nice riding paints from the Petaluma auction (ADOPTED) , a starving TB who is doing SOOO much better, and a herd of feral ponies caught playing in traffic: now foaling out and getting gelded before they head out to a Sanctuary.

We went to the Cowtown Auction April 1st again and got 4 horses: Two mini's (ADOPTED already!) and a mare and gelding.

We are still looking for foster homes in the Santa Rosa, Lake County and Ukiah areas! Please consider and call 707-824-9543

And a very deep and heartfelt thank you to all our supporters that make such an effort like this possible. You are the real heros!


Eliza is 7-10 and a gaited horse. She is 14.3 hands ready to go to a great home with an experienced horseperson.
