Candi's First rescue......
It was a Saturday afternoon late in January 09'.
She had just
finished working at Santa Anita doing some communication work with the Race
She knew that this day could quite possibly be the hardest day of her
life. Candi had plans to go under cover for a documentary. Armed with a hidden camera in her purse, she was going to visit a feed lot
where hundreds of horses were being held before they were to go to slaughter. As soon as she drove up, a starved and pregnant Palomino Mare starting calling out to her at the
top of her lungs. There were hundreds there, but this Mare was determined to
get her attention. Her heart sunk as she approached, fighting back the tears. As she gently put her arms around her neck the Mare whispered in quiet desperation "Save Me" and the rest is history........
Candi then asked the mare when was she going to have the baby? She said
NOW!!! Candi promised her at that moment she would come back and save both of them. The next day Candi went to save her and her unborn baby. With the birth of Baby Jazz, Sweet Water Ranch Inc. was also born. She is our Mascot.
