Echo suffered emotional and physical trauma before he was rescued and found a home at another rescue. When they closed down, watching his friends leave one by one to their new homes affected him greatly and opened up old emotions and insecurities. Luckily, we were able to take him and bring him home to SRAS. Echo absolutely hates being haltered or having his feet touched, a fear based phobia that we are working on. We are very hands on here at SRAS and haltering and hoof trims are a must so we have been working on removing the fear associated with these tasks. Our equine caregiver has turned haltering into a game along with cookie treats and Echo now looks forward to halter time, no longer scared of it. We are also making huge strides on being able to touch his legs and feet. He is also receiving energy healing sessions to help him release old traumas, and has received chiropractic care and is getting TONS of love. He is settling in so much better and gaining the confidence that will help keep him grounded and joyful. Echo is such a sweet, sweet boy and seeing him begin to blossom again makes our hearts so happy.
If you would like to help care for Echo, you can make a donation or a monthly sponsorship. All the proceeds go towards the food and care of the animals.
