Man, it’s been pretty darn chilly these last few days! I think it’s safe to say that I can no longer pretend Winter isn’t creeping in. The cranes are slowly flying south, our horses are sporting fluff, and our pasture grass is fading. Though, I’m glad there isn’t any snow….yet (knock on wood).

Are you ready for Winter?
Waddles helping our farrier out this morning. She is too funny!
Clayton Pederson, a Wisconsin Cowboy, passed away on September 29, 2021. His family made a generous donation in his honor to Rocky Fellow Horse Sanctuary.

Second to the Lord, Clayton loved horses. Since a young man into his 80s, he had horses in his life. For many years he boarded and trained horses for others, often to the point where his children would be able to ride them as well. (Although, they hit
the dirt a time or two also.) Through this he experienced many different personalities of horses, as much as human personalities. He always belonged to a Saddle Club, where he rode with others in horse shows and competitions,
developing lifelong friends. Many people who had horses in the area or who bought a new horse would ask Clayton to ride the horse, helping others in their enjoyment of horses as well. Many can relate a horse experience they had with
Clayton. The last time he rode he was 80 and he got bucked off. Didn't get hurt, rode the horse home, but decided he would enjoy horses from the ground from then on. Throughout his life he was able to experience the Cowboy life by visiting
his son in Montana, Duke Pederson, who has carried on the Cowboy heritage Clayton started.

Saddle up Clayton!



Please keep Clayton’s family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We cannot express how thankful we are to have been chosen to honor this wonderful man.
Thank you to all of the sponsors for making these massages happen for some of our residents today!

A big shout out to Meagan Kutzler of Flying A Equine Services for being our go-to body worker! Our horses enjoy many of her services such as: massage therapy, laser treatments, KT tape, and MagnaWave!

She will be back out on 11/17.

Unfortunately, the Amish gelding never made it to our Sanctuary. He collapsed and wasn’t able to rise, and so the kindest option was to let him go. While I wish we could have given him a chance at a new start we are glad that he is no longer suffering. Hug your horses a little extra tight tonight in honor of his life.

Resident update: Jed

As most of you know, Jed was a nameless Amish buggy horse who broke down in front of our Sanctuary during the early hours of October 14th 2019. He had blood pouring from his swollen knees, a depleted body, and eyes that emanated defeat. I offered cash to the gentleman on the spot, who said he wasn’t his owner. They told me to tie “it” to a tree overnight and that they would be back in the morning. I offered to stable him and trailer him home so they wouldn’t have to drag him behind another buggy. Thankfully, they accepted. I spent hours with him. Carefully stroking and reassuring him that I would see him again. That morning, I wept as we loaded him into our trailer. He softly stared me as if he knew I needed comfort. What a blessed soul. Here he is, suffering. Truly suffering but wanted to bring me comfort. We had to wait a week until they called us with news that they tried to hitch him several more times - and he refused to move. With that, they accepted my offer and we brought our boy home. Forever.

Almost a year into his rehabilitation, he suffered a catastrophic injury to his neck in a freak pasture accident. The wound was so large and so horrendous that I nor our vet had ever seen anything like it. Fortunately, we have been blessed with the most amazing Veterinarian and team. They are the unsung heroes of Jed’s recovery.

He is now 100% healed and enjoying his retirement. He is a permanent resident of our Sanctuary and continues to inspire all who meet him. Jed is a quiet guy who enjoys roaming the pasture with a select few friends, hanging out with his love Twister, and meditating with me on the hill. He is a true testament of never giving up no matter how bleak the circumstances.

Jed will be our “special guest” for New Auburn’s 2022 Jamboree Days.

Sanctuary resident update: Lyra

Lyra is a permanent resident of Rocky Fellow and continues to be an inspiration to all who meet her. She adores attention, hugs, children, scratches under her mane, laying down and napping with people, and most of all…boots. This girl LOVES licking boots. Why? We have no idea! But it sure makes her day when we wear our muck boots.

She has come such a long way and under tough circumstances. Through it all she has never given up and put faith in her people to do what’s best. Regardless of her start, she has always radiated love and warmth. We can’t wait to share her with the community next year ❤️

My favorite time of the day, the morning roll call!

There’s nothing better than a herd of horses happily running to greet you! 🐎💨

This is our daily check in. It’s when we fly spray, give medications, and overall health checks are done. I personally love taking the time to connect and enjoy their company. We are truly blessed with such a loving herd. Their happiness fuels us.

So if you live nearby and hear this sound, just know that it isn’t a Bigfoot hollering. It’s me calling the crew! 🤣

What is your favorite morning routine? We’d love hear about what sparks joy in your life!

The lovers, Twister and Jed, enjoying each other’s company this beautiful crisp morning.

Hey Facebook! It’s been awhile!

How is everyone doing? We’ve missed you all!

Arrick and I have been keeping ourselves very busy since Spring rolled around. We’ve had a few babies born on our farm since we last posted! Our goat, Harper, gave birth to a bouncing baby buck we named Tater, after a dear friend’s beloved late golden. He has grown into such a character and if you ask him? He’s a human. Not a goat! 😆 Our second baby was a filly born from our personal mare, Missi. She honestly looks like a spitting image of her mother! We call her Ellie. She was named after one of our most favorite little girls we had the pleasure of knowing back on the East coast. And just like her namesake, Ellie is a bold and friendly girl.

Our herd has also been doing very well. This Summer we experimented with cold water sprinklers as a method of enrichment and a way to cool off. I think we will be adding a few more for next Summer since it was a pretty big hit! We also tried some diy popsicles and treat balls, which they took the easier route of grazing LOL. Now that Fall is on the horizon, it’s time to sort through blankets, winterize/add shelters, and plan out our re-set for the hay barrels (which the herd likes to play with). There’s always something to do!

In exciting news…drum roll….we will be participating Jamboree Days in New Auburn next year! Woo HOO!! Arrick and I will be bringing our petting zoo crew for all of the children and adults to love on! There will also be a certain equine joining…would anyone like to guess who that might be? 👀

We sure hope everyone is doing well this year! We have missed you all and can’t wait until this crazy pandemic is over with! Hopefully we can start having camps/programs for the community in the near future.
