Cascade has been adopted and gone to his new home. Thanks to all who expressed interest in him.
I am a 3-year old gelding who found myself getting into trouble on a rancher’s farm west of Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. My brother and I got kicked out of our herd by the herd stallion who had enough of our shenanigans so off we went. It was fun at first roaming around in the forests and meadows but soon we wanted some company and found a beautiful mare. Unfortunately she lived on private land and we were not welcome.
With the help of the rancher and the kind folks at WHOAS, we were encouraged to get into their trailer and came to their rescue facility just west of Sundre. At first we were frightened but soon learned that the humans were bringing us lots of good food and water. Before you know it we had halters on and began to trust these humans who did not want to harm us.
Now you should see me. I look forward to being led into their barn twice a day where I get more good food. I can be brushed and touched and its okay. I have been gelded, had my wolf teeth removed, vaccinated and wormed. I have also been freeze branded (W or H right hip) so if I ever get lost or stolen I can be found again.
Here one our volunteers is leading Cascade around his pen. This is part of his daily training.
Cascade is ready for adoption and looking for his forever owner and home. Contact WHOAS at WHOASalberta@gmail.com and arrange to come out and see him. He is not going to be a big horse, maybe 14.1 hh but is strong with good feet. We have found these wildies are quick learners and bond quickly with their new owners.
