As you may or may not be aware, our founder/director, Mona Jerome,
passed in January this year. Her loss is deeply felt by all who knew her. Longtime co-director, and granddaughter of Mona, Lydia Boothby Studley, has stepped into the director’s position to ensure the continuity of the Rescue. Lydia, and the Rescue’s Board of Directors, look forward to upholding the fulfillment of Mona’s lifelong desire and mission to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home America’s wild horses. Family and close friends gathered on Mona’s birthday this year for a Celebration of Life Service – there was laughter and tears as we reminisced on the life of a truly remarkable woman.
In Loving Memory of
Mona O. Jerome
July 17, 1938 – January 21, 2022
Hello everyone! The rescue has been busy this year, and so has our family. We welcomed our third child, Carter Studley, at the beginning of April. Like his two older siblings, he loves going to the rescue and helping care for the horses. It’s never too early to get them started on a farm!
We’ve been quite busy around the farm this year as well.
We are happy to say we’ve had three successful adoptions,
moved the front barn, and continue to do much-needed
clean-up around the rescue. Of course, we still love to have
visitors and do tours by appointment.
On October 1st, we will host our 16th Annual Benefit Horse
Show at Hollis Equestrian Park. Spectators welcome!
Thunder was adopted in May of this year by
Miranda, who already has another former
Ever After Mustang Rescue, Paiute. Both
horses couldn’t seem happier.
Magic was adopted in 2021 by one of our
volunteers, Courtney. She continues to do
great with him. She brought him to last
year’s Benefit Horse Show and is planning to
get him to this year’s show as well!
4 Generations later and their love for the Mustang is built from Mustangs that came from the same location.
We wish to thank our volunteers and supporters, both financially and emotionally. We appreciate all the continued support while we are transitioning. As always, we couldn’t do what we do without you!
We want to thank everyone who donated bottles to the Rescue over the years. The revenue from your donations has helped us meet the needs of our resident horses. However, due to short staffing here and at bottle redemption centers in our local area, we find it harder and harder to return your donated bottles, causing a build-up at the Rescue, where we need space for horses.
Going forward, we will no longer be able to accept donated bottles. We genuinely appreciate all the support you have given us and cannot fully express our gratitude for your generosity.
