Name Game – 2210 – TY & Chance

Help us name our newest!

Here they are! 

On Sunday, October 16th, 2022, these boys arrived at SWFHR.

Meet our newest rescue intakes! These boys come to SWFHR from a rescue to our north. After the destruction & devastation caused by Hurricane Ian, SWFHR while delivering relief supplies to the community, answered a call for help in Myakka City for supplies. A multi-animal rescue had been ravaged by the hurricane and needed breathing room to recover from the mess.  As fortunate events would have it SWFHR fared much better than some and we offered to help recover these two boys.

It has been a week since arriving and we think it fitting to give them a brand new name to go with their brand new future.  We would love your help in choosing an appropriate name for our newest.

If you’re new to our “Name Game” the rules are written below.  The goal is to aid with future care costs (i.e. Coggins, Feed, Hay, Intake Exam, Dental, & Vaccines, Castrations, Farrier Work, Deworming, and Future Training).  So for as little as $1 you can be a part of these boys’ legacy.

These horses represent a side of the rescue world that doesn't happen too often. But when one rescue is in need other rescues should step up and help. We believe that Rescues have an obligation to work together for the better good of all horses.

Insight

In many situations, there are horses out there with a human who is currently responsible for that horse.  Even if the owner, who may have an issue (i.e. financial, physical, pure lack of interest, etc.), still has a responsibility to the horse(s) that they originally accepted the responsibility for.  We offer mutual help in these situations. But horses confiscated, released, or just plainly in the care of authority do not have a human responsible for them and that is what SWFHR believes its efforts as a “Rescue” should primarily be.
