Category : August 2012 Horse Rescue


Welcome to “The Redeemed.” A horse rescue program here at Mounted Ministries. Meet “Cricket.” Cricket was extremely malnurished. Sadly, Cricket’s momma died of starvation when he was just 4 months old. This fragile colt would certainly have followed had we not stepped in. Here is a picture of Cricket the day we rescued him.

Cricket Before

We are happy to report that Cricket is now doing fantastic! Here is a picture of him just 1 month after his rescue.

Cricket's After-shot

Along with Cricket, we also rescued his daddy (Peanut) as well as a 3 year old Paint filly (Grace). All 3 required medical attention the day they arrived. Peanut was infested with lice. We had to remove his forelock and mane in order to rid him of the thousand biting lice and eggs that were found living on him. All of the horses needed to be dewormed as well as required immediate attention to their hooves.

We are able to provide and protect these helpless and neglected horses through the help of our community and friends. Where God guides, God provides. If led to help, please make your tax deductable donation by either using our secure online PayPal feature or mail a check made payable to “Mounted Ministries” PO Box 71, Pickens, SC 29671.

Volunteers are needed on a daily basis to help us nurse rescued horses like Cricket back to health, administer medicaitons, and to just provide the tender loving care so desperately in need of. If interested, please contact us at 864-752-5142. God bless and thank you for your prayers and support.
