Yesterday, Ann Hepworth, from Best Friends, came over to play and went with us, (Lisa Golding and myself), to take Kelsey to Dr. Brinkerhoff's office. She went for a sonogram to check her for any tumors in her reproductive systems and hormone levels testing. A month ago when she came, she had exhibited stallion like behaviors, and we wanted to rule out any internal problems. Miss Kelsey, has been a dream, now that she has been outside and has friends to connect with, of her own kind. She has been treated for her ulcers, and her mental issues, (from being stalled, inclosed), they have all subsided. As long as it's not muddy, we continue with her Perelli training, she is so smart! And wants to connect with you. She loves to work and play! She had been in with all of our mud so she gets to play first, and then work. All reports came back great! Now it's time to find a new home, that she can work in. 💗

I developed a passion for horses while volunteering at Henry's Home Horse and Human Sanctuary in Houston Tx. in the fall of 2015. My husband and I planned to retire to the Kanarraville area and had a ...home built there. Which was completed in early 2016. As retirement drew closer, I knew I would have to leave my beloved Henry's Home. I began searching the Internet for a new place I could donate time and money.I soon found Dust Devil Ranch and was thrilled it was less then 5 miles from home. Feeling so strongly about the plight of unwanted horses, who would other wise end up sold at auction, going to kill lots and shipped thousands of miles to slaughter in Mexico and Canada. Their meat then sold to Asian and European countries. Joe and Ginger do fantastic work. Tirelessly helping unwanted, abused, ill horses. It's thrilling to see theses horses fed, rehabilitated and adopted into loving homes.I wish more people in this area would step- up and support Dust Devil Ranch's work with these amazing creatures, who have suffered so much. This horse - loving community could help accomplish so much, where the need is so great.The 2 days a week I volunteer, I muck stalls, spread manure, fill water buckets, ( it's really such good exercise ) and last but not least giving lots of TLC to these sweet, sweet horses. We could all make such a difference if we really wanted to. I know my life is so much richer because of DDR. I thank God for the opportunity to help with this worthwhile cause. Seeing how forgiving these horses are, humbles and reminds me not to sweat the small stuff. See More

I've always enjoyed following Dust Devil Ranch Sanctuary! So many inspiring stories. I really enjoying seeing the caring staff and volunteers working with the animals. I am a holistic professional ...and I also love to see the animals receiving integrative care. Dust Devil has a special place in my heart after the rescue of Elsa and Anna in January 2014. See More

How many women does it take to allure a classy, but skittish mare to hop on a trailer? An amazing group of women from the vicinity of Cedar City came to my assistance to take "Lady" away from her Hur...ricane home and on to Dust Devil Ranch Refuge. I am grateful and in awe of Ginger, Becky, Catherine, and Shannon. They spent 2.5 hours patiently trying to convince "Lady" that the trailer was safe. Lady resorted to all kinds of clever dances to avoid getting up there. Finally, when she was ready, she decided that Ginger was her friend and then walked up to the trailer and hopped on. I certainly encourage all people, but especially the southern Utah communities, to support much needed horse and animal refuges. See More

I am Heartbroken over the sudden and sad turn of events regarding Elsa and her recovery. While I don't raise or own horses, I do have poultry flocks and seeing after their welfare is an ongoing strugg...le which has led me to one conclusion, That you can do everything right and they will still die on you. Please accept my deepest condolences as you and people like you are more needed in our small world than all those who want to divide us into warring factions. Keep up you Noble efforts to help these neglected animals that most need and deserve their Right to be treated Humanely! See More

Amazing dedication and compassionate care for the severely neglected.

I feel they need a lot of support. Ginger and her volunteers have been forced into this awful situation of saving abused and abandoned horses. The bad economy, the high cost of feed (because of high... cost of diesel fuel, etc) is causing some of it. Turning them loose in the mountains? Or in the parks? The horse industry has been hit hard! Even papered horses have no market value. The legal system needs to catch up by strengthening and enforcing laws against abandonment. See More

I have followed this horse rescue since January 1, 2014. I have watch Ginger Grimes tirelessly take care and house all the neglected horses sent, brought to her or she had to go and get them. She us...ed to have volunteers but as time goes by, volunteers move on and then you are left with all the work by yourself. I have gotten to know this woman who followed a dream of hers for so many, many years to open a horse rescue to help the abused, neglected, abandoned, thrown away horses. She has done a remarkable job of doing this and I just can not say enough about this person. She has no volunteers and she ended up having to go to work a public job 2-3 days a week to help with the expenses of the rescues. I am talking about a horse rescue that does not have a hay barn, they have a metal barn that we all donated whatever we could to buy on off of Craigs List...it only houses at best 10 horses. This rescue has at least 30+ horses, the ground is dust and dirt, no grass except sage grass and they got a few places fenced in, but not really the ideal place, but at least the horses are safe and well taken care of. This woman does it all herself and she loves every part of it. She is quite talented, so she has made many, many things and painted pictures of the horses to raffle off and we all buy tickets so as to help with the expenses of the rescue. I have no idea but I am sure it costs a lot to care for all of those horses and I would have to say that she is lucky if she gets about five hundred dollars, maybe a tiny bit more, a month to provide food, vet care, hoof care, just everything needed for the horses. Can you imagine not having the money to help the horse when it is depending on you. This rescue has over 18,000 likes of the rescue. Goodness, if everyone would give one dollar, just one dollar, the rescue could have a hay barn or a real barn for many of the horses. I am praying every day that anyone who can help this rescue will do so. I pray that God will put on the heart of anyone who reads this review will send just a dollar or two. Every single dollar helps. There is one nice man who donates hay from time to time. The last donation got delivered, covered with tarps and then heavy rains with extreme winds came for about a week. About 1/3 to 1/2 of the hay was lost because it got wet. Please, please people keep this rescue in your heart and mind and if you can not donate, please share and maybe your share would get to someone who would like to donate. All donations are tax-deductible!!!!! I just read her latest post that I got and she has taken in two mini ponies that can barely walk because of hoof and feet problems. Had to go and pick them up herself. She already has the vet and the farrier coming to see what the status is, but she said she has them with hay to eat and a soft place to lie down in the metal barn. They are on antibiotics as well. She wants them to know what love, compassion and care is whatever time they have left before they cross over Rainbows Bridge. She does not know at this time if they can even be saved, but trust me, Ginger Grimes will do whatever she has to do to make sure they have a second chance and are happy and loved. See More

I was not posting over the weekend, I was away visiting my son, I needed a break. We only spent Saturday together, as our plans got cut short. I didn't get to Visit with the intuitive, Terry Foley or Crysteena Tillie, with Lou/Sammie on Tuesday. Needless to say this was not a great week for me. But glad I got to see Chris and his Girl Friend, and a quick visit with her family in from Washington State.

........ RIP STEVE...... ❤️🌈Harry and I will miss you! 🌈❤️.......

Steve died over night at the vets office, sometime after Doc went in to change his IV bag. My guess, around 2 am when I woke up and couldn't go back to sleep....😞

A year to the day..... We lost Morty to a freak accident....https://www.facebook.com/ginger.grimes.92/…/2032199237004074.... now prayers are needed for his blood brother, Steve. Who, I found lethargic and non responsive in the barn with Harry this afternoon laying in the Sun. Rushed him to Doc Thinnis' office in town. He has a blocked urinary tract. He maybe to far gone to save but Doc's going to try. He's staying over night, I'll know more in the am. 🙏🏼❤️
