This One's A Keeper!

     Hoka was one of five mustangs Equine Voices rescued from a sanctuary in South Dakota in 2016. He and the other mustangs were part of a mass hoarding situation which started out with 300 wild mustangs that years later turned in to 907. When Equine Voices received a call for help, we had room to take five; Hoka, Twizzle, Malcolm, Mamacita and Rowdy. Many of the horses died, were being neglected, were starved and had severe injuries.   

    Now safe at the sanctuary, Hoka is thriving. He’s a very tall and leggy mustang who really enjoys horsing around with his herdmates Twizzle and Noel. He has a very loving and sweet demeanor toward people, always stretching his muzzle out to greet visitors, volunteers, and staff.  

    Caitlin, our trainer, has been working with Hoka for a few months, and is preparing him for the saddle. Hoka is a quick and eager learner, and loves to please.  If you are interested in adopting Hoka, please visit our website at: https://www.equinevoices.org/horses/programs/give-horse-loving-home/ or call the office at: (520) 398-2814 to schedule a visit with him.

The King Must Fall

    The Farm Bill Affects Us All A Farm Bill must be passed this year in order to reauthorize essential programs upon which the agriculture sector heavily depends. During a markup of this important piece of legislation, the House Agriculture Committee voted to include a disastrous amendment offered by Representative Steve King (IA). The full House will likely vote on this legislation the week of May 14. The King Amendment is a vicious attack on hundreds - even thousands - of state and local laws protecting animals and consumers. It is a major threat to people and animals nationwide. To read more on this topic go to: https://us17.campaign-archive.com/?u=aa5fb46cacf98ba4fa0fb9b50&id=b68304f364



Poetry Corner

" When I'm An Old Horsewoman "


I shall wear turquoise and diamonds, 

And a straw hat that doesn't suit me.

And I shall spend my social security on red

    wine and carrots, 

And sit in the alley-way of my barn

And listen to my horses breathe.


I will sneak out in the middle of a summer

    night and ride my old liver-chestnut gelding

Across moonstruck meadow if my old

    bones will allow.


And when people come to call, I will smile and

    nod as I walk past the gardens to the barn

And show instead the flowers growing inside

    stalls fresh lined with shavings.


I will shovel and sweat and wear hay in my

 hair as if it were a jewel.

And I will be an embarrassment to all, who

    have not yet found the peace in being free to

Have a horse as a best friend.


A Friend who waits at midnight hour, with a

    soft velvet muzzle, a nicker and patient eyes

For the kind of woman I will be 

When I am old.
