The day this picture was taken, these two lovebirds got a pretty good grooming session but apparently, Merlin decided that he was far too white for his own comfort so promptly walked over and laid in the mud. Leona and Merlin were taken off a muddy lot along with their buddy Jax and some other farm animals that Out To Pasture rescued. This was a day of cooperation between three Rescues. Sound Equine Options took on Jax, the most spirited of the group and more appropriate for their mission and resources. In cooperation with Out to Pasture, we took on Leona and Merlin. Good things happen when we all work together. Leona and Merlin are in training to get them ready to be adopted out. Through Positive Reinforcement (Clicker) Training, we are getting them to pick their feet up comfortably for hoof care, and be haltered and ready for routine Vet care. Once these things become comfortable for them, they will be great candidates for adoption.
