Wanda and Halla

I first saw Halla on Facebook looking straight at me with doleful eyes.  Oh No! Not again! (I said to myself).  Long story short.  I brought Bint Halla home, registration papers and all.  Halla was born in 1992.   I adopted her in 2013.  All she had to do is enjoy life.  She came to my…

Wanda and Babs

My name is Wanda Holloway.  I have owned, bred, shown Arabian horses since 1970.  My, then, husband and I were known as Don-Wan Arabians.  Our bloodlines were mostly Egyptian.  We knew pretty much all the Arabian breeders in the area. Time passed.  I became single, moved North of Moses Lake in 1995.  Still I had…

Erich and Charlie

I adopted Charlie in 2014. My wife and I had fostered him for several months before we decided to adopt him.  It was his “hello” nicker every-time I walked out the front door that made my heart just smile!   Rodeo City Equine Rescue took in Charlie because his owners were no longer able to care for…

Nicole and Bisquit

I adopted Bisquit in 2012. Bisquit was a young unbroken filly, who had been rescued from a starvation impound. From the first time I met her… I felt the connection.

Kim and Rane

The first time I saw this beautiful Appaloosa filly was at the Rodeo City Equine Rescue spaghetti fund raiser.  She was pictured on a placard that was placed on all of the tables.  I couldn’t take my eyes off of that picture all night.  I just knew she was something special.  But she wasn’t available…

Judy and Belle

For several years I’ve been a foster home for Rodeo City Equine Rescue, fostering 19 horses. While I have loved all of the horses that I have fostered none of them stole my heart the way the 19th horse, Belle did. From the moment I met her, it was love at first site. I fell in love…

Lacy and Riley

Adopting Lacy has been a blessing to me and my family. She’s so gentle, sweet, caring and anyone can ride her because she’s so well behaved. Lacy is the perfect horse for me and I know I’m the perfect girl for her! I am so thankful that we were able to give her a good…

Chance and Lisa

After I turned 50, two kids grown and on their own I was hoping to adopt a horse but never thought I could as they are expensive and my riding experience was limited. I only rode as a kid on a neighbor’s horse and at camp.  I have worked with many rescues and realized there…
