In honor of a beautiful soul, sienna
Animal Guardians Horse Rescue, Inc. is deeply saddened to announce the passing of our sweet angel Sienna, who lost her battle to a tragic colon twist colic emergency on March 25, 2018. To end her suffering, AGHR had no other option than to humanely euthanize this beautiful 28-year-old Morgan mare. She will forever live in our hearts as a playful, loving, youthful soul, with tons of love to give and joy in her being. We have created this memorial fund campaign to help recover the $1900 spent on Sienna's emergency vet bill, humane euthanasia and cremation. Please help us make a donation so we can sustain our funds for our other beautiful senior horses in the sanctuary and for Lullaby, our precious hardship case pit bull. We need help from the public to regain and recover, both emotionally, and financially, from this very traumatic and difficult loss of a beautiful life. Donors and rescue family members will be invited to attend a memorial ceremony by the ocean in a few weeks, when we say our last goodbye and throw a white flower into the ocean to show our respects and prayers for this beautiful horse who has given us so much joy. She will forever run in greener pastures, pain free, and mane flowing in the wind. We will also celebrate Texas, our sweet ranch horse who crossed the rainbow bridge in October 2017.

Your generous donations have earned us an additional $800 to spend on our precious 33-year-old eldest senior angel, Dakota. This came very close to meeting our $1,000 fundraising goal. We sincerely appreciate your generous donations and your efforts in spreading the word about our fundraiser to other concerned citizens to participate from around the country. Our hearts are full of joy and Dakota is the direct beneficiary of all of this love. We encourage you all to stay connected with our rescue organization and join us for some wonderful community educational outreach events, and future fundraiser activities later this spring and summer. With your continued help and support, we are better able to continue caring for our equine senior angels with the greatest possible level of love.
A Volunteer contribution by angel campbell
It is often said "to give is its greatest reward." Being part of Animal Guardians Horse Rescue has been that for me. My horse died in Oct of 2017. He was an old cantankerous guy who had lived an adventurous life from race track, to backyard project, to dressage school horse, to ranch trail, to finally retired pasture buddy. Not all of his life was pleasant, but his last 14 years were filled with love and attention. When he passed, I promised him that I would find an organization that valued older horses in their twilight years and volunteer. I wanted to be sure other horses had as sweet and loving final years as he had had. I have found such an organization in Animal Guardians Horse Rescue. The older horses thrive from love and attention the many volunteers bestow on them. Each volunteer has so many gifts to share not only with the horses, but with each other as well. Some of us are new to the horse world, and some are experienced horse people but all share in the belief to make these horses have a better life. As diverse as our volunteers are is how diverse the horses are. We have horses who have had little positive human contact and lack the awareness as to space and trust. They need slow and consistent interactions. AGHR provides training to work with these horses in a consistent, safe manner. There are also horses that are so loving and sweet you could put them in your back pocket. The joy of having a previously distrusting horse walk towards you with bent head and seek your touch is truly satisfying. To have an old "friend" greet you with nickers can only be described as rapturous. Through giving my time to these amazing horses and this organization, my life has been enriched ten fold. I encourage anyone interested in horses to become a part of this wonderful organization because to give is its greatest reward. You never know what blessings await you.
