We are happy to announce Blue Apple Ranch is now officially accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS). GFAS has established clear, specific standards for the humane care of various species in captive facilities and for sanctuary governance and operational issues. This prestigious honor has only been given to 7 locations in the state of California and only 51 in the United Sates.
As honorees, donors and foundations can rely on GFAS to objectively verify that animal sanctuaries are providing animals the standards of care that they deserve. To learn more visit www.sanctuaryfederation.org

Owning a horse is a big responsibility which takes time, commitment and plenty of funds. Horses depend upon their owners to take care of all their basic needs such as food, shelter, medical care, physical and emotional well being. Horses do not have to be ridden, but they do need a significant amount of time spent with them to maintain their basic needs. Keeping your horse healthy will make ownership significantly more pleasurable in the long run.
Be responsible and reap the rewards. Find out more at the Humane Society’s Horse Care Guidelines.
The health and wellness of our equine companions is important to not only the horses, but also to us as equine owners and equine lovers. Maintaining a healthy horse will keep them comfortable throughout their lives, and help them to live longer more productive lives. The key to keeping your horse healthy and in the best possible shape is preventative medicine and good nutrition. These include regular vaccinations, regular dentals, and a good quality diet. Many of the problems horses have later in life can be traced back to a lack of good preventative care as young horses. Addressing these issues early can
also save you money later on. Diseases that could have easily been prevented with a $40 vaccination.
