September 2012 update


Help us keep him well-fed and looking good!

Pathos’ story:

Pathos was BLM rescue horse, who was adopted by a man who only had him for seven months and did this…

This magnificent survivor came to the Last Chance Ranch Sanctuary weighing only 360 pounds, at the age of 2 1/2 years. He was covered from head to toe with lice, causing severe anemia  and had open sores from dehydration. Neglected from the get-go, he had close to a 100 lbs. of sand in him. In the long run, it was probably one thing that may have saved his life, simply because his intestines were not able to twist. Can you imagine, 100 pounds of sand? When it first started moving there was hardly any particles of food in it!

Pathos has come a long way considering what shape he was in when he arrived, in fact BLM called once a week for awhile to see if was still with us.

Pathos still has periodic bouts with sand colic, which will most likely be an on going problem….


Oh so thin.

Deconditioned and covered in lice.

Ribs showing.


Come on Pathos, gotta move that sand out!

Care Package Wish List

I’m no Mr. Ed, but I’d like to tell you about a few things I could use. Not everyone is comfortable sponsoring or donating, but maybe you’d like to send me a care package (gently used items are fine), so here’s my list: brushes, poop rake, halter, hoof picks, 10-foot cotton lead rope, hypoallergenic horse shampoo, horse wormers, psyllium, jolly balls, horse toys, carrots & apples & grapes, crimped oats, Equine Senior, and hay (can be arranged for through our feed store). If you really want to spoil us, we could use more horse panels. Please send to: Pathos, c/o Last Chance Ranch Sanctuary, PO Box 6763, Kingman, AZ 86402.  Thank you!
