Helping rescued animals also includes having the animal examined by a doctor. Not an easy task.
“We all know how scary it can be to go to the doctor, especially when you’re young and you don’t quite know what’s going on. Now imagine you’re a wild horse or burro who isn’t used to human interaction, or whose only human touch has been negative, and you can understand why it can be difficult to provide medical treatment to some of our rescued equine residents.
But, with the doors to Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch’s newly-constructed equine handling facility now open, we are able to provide care to even our most timid and semi-tame residents.
Designed by Temple Grandin and Mark Deesing, the new facility is truly an industry leader in the humane handling of equines. It has an open design, modified chutes and wider lanes that allow the horses and burros to move through the chutes in smaller groups. In addition, the facility houses state of the art equipment that allows our veterinarians to safely examine all parts of the horse, while the structure itself makes the horse feel comfortable and safe.
Just recently we treated Buckaroo, a beautiful Leopard Appaloosa gelding, who came to the ranch ten years ago after being rescued from slaughter. His previous life had left him in poor condition and with a deep mistrust of humans. The new handling facility has made a world of difference and the process of receiving his yearly check up is now much easier for him.”
