NER Staff Jason and Tawnee just arrived back at the rescue from being in Nebraska helping with the rescue effort at 3 Strikes Ranch. Around 192 mostly wild and emaciated horses, mainly mustangs, were removed from the ranch under the guidance of the Sherrif department, Humane Society of the United States, and many representatives from horse rescue organizations including NorCal Equine Rescue. From our perspective it looked like a majority of the horses were stallions, but we have not received word on a final count of mares, geldings and stallions. We cannot go into detail about the rescue as it is a criminal investigation, but here are news story links with plenty of pictures.

The third NorCal volunteer who went to Nebraska is still there to assist with the continued care of the horses.

Jason and Tawnee only received about 12 hours of sleep since Tuesday morning so today's blog is a short synopsis. On Sunday's blog we will be writing about this weeks events.
