Mustang Rescue, Rehabilitation & Adoption
Jazz is a handsome 18 year old gelding born in captivity. His sire being a mustang and his mother a POA, he definitely shows the best of both breeds. Our veterinarian has confirmed that Jazz is now totally blind.
His winter coat is pure white with black mottling around his mouth and nose, but shedding out reveals large black spots on the skin surface of his chest and sides. Truly unique. At 14 hands his mustang heritage reveals a stocky, solid body, strong durable legs and great hooves. Jazz loves human attention and is a favorite among visitors.
Due to his blindness, it is difficult for him to navigate his stall and daily turn out. Therefore, we would like to build him a sturdy shelter and attached, outdoor enclosure to maintain his safety.
Mona Jerome, Director
Bush Brook Farm was built in 1980 on 63 acres of land, to be home to a 6 year old mustang. It was a long time dream of Mona Jerome and made possible by her devoted husband Brad. It was just the beginning of something bigger and of greater importance.
Mona followed her passion for wild horses and volunteered many hours assisting contractors for the Bureau of Land Management at New England Satellite Adoptions, participated in yearly wild horse workshops offered by least Resistance Training Concepts throughout the west, and learning about the wild horse from those with many years of experience. In addition she has attended and participated in clinics with nationally known trainers.
In 2002, with the encouragement and help of Brad, Mona founded Ever After Mustang Rescue, Training and Education Center. Since that time it has been a refuge for unwanted, neglected and abused mustangs. With nearly 30 years of experience Mona has facilitated the healing of mind and body, restoring the horse to the proud, intelligent creature he is.
Education continues with every horse we work with and continuing to attend workshops and training clinics.
The rescue places an average of 2-3 horses a year to approved homes. The success of these placements can be viewed on the Alumni page (coming soon).
The Rescue Center is also host to several yearly clinics, workshops and training programs for horse owners and any interested parties. See our Events page fmi.
