Our First Successful Adoption
Cayenne came to us from his owner after she suffered the loss of her husband. He was the horse person in the family and trying to care for a horse on your own is a lot of work. It was very difficult to let that piece of her husband go but she wanted to be sure his much loved friend would find a suitable home. After he had time to adjust to his new home we began working with Cayenne to determine what would be the best fit for him. We had a young lady who fell in love with him at first sight but we all felt that an untrained 8 year old gelding would probably not be the best choice for a first horse so she sadly walked away. His number one fan did however stay in touch and a year later inquired to see if he was still available. He was and he had now received some needed handling and training to prepare him for placement into a new and permanent home. The two of them spent a month working together with the help of a trainer and it was decided that they had both found the perfect match ...
Job Well Done
Full Circle is lucky to have young people like the students from the East Valley High School STAR Program volunteer their time to help care for the horses at FCERC! It takes teamwork and strong communication skills to provide quality care for the horses at Full Circle. Somehow when you are helping take care of someone who truly needs your help it just doesn't feel like work!
