Leah's Forever Home

The Sonoma CHANGE Program congratulates our sweet, people-lovin' foster horse Leah on her recent adoption. Read Leah's story here.

Leah's new mom, who uses natural horsemanship techniques in her training, spent many hours visiting with Leah at her foster home. Once she got to know this sweet mare, she was 100% committed to providing Leah with the training she needs. Leah is enjoying "playing" Parelli games and learning essential ground skills.

Leah joins her new 'brother,' a 2-year-old Mustang gelding. This is the most beautiful mustang we have ever seen! Besides being incredibly sweet and people-oriented, his coat shines so much, it makes your eyes hurt!

Big thanks go to the many supporters of the Sonoma CHANGE Program. Your help and donations fund our foster care program, which helped Leah go from a thin, neglected, unwanted horse in June, to a shiny, loved and wanted horse with a forever home in September.

Thank you, and congratulations to Leah's new family!

Please read about other Sonoma CHANGE Program horses (and a cute little pony!) who need loving, permanent homes.

Crystal Thanks Her "Moms"

Crystal gave big kisses to Bev Palm and Dee today (pictured here.) Bev Palm is her fairy godmother who donated money for her laser surgery at UC Davis, and Dee is her foster mom. Dee has worked hard to keep her surgery site clean and to administer her post-op medications. Crystal is doing great, she has not looked back... literally!
