Mustang Rescue, Rehabilitation & Adoption
Shasta and Ranger Remembered....
Shasta and Ranger crossed the Rainbow Bridge only 2 weeks apart, Feb 14th and Feb 25th respectively. They lived in side by side stalls and spent their outdoor turnout together, grooming each other and enjoying their company. Shasta was in her mid 30's, Ranger 41years. We will always remember their kind and gentle nature and their gift to the many youth and adults in our programs. Our sadness is only relieved in knowing we were able to give them care and comfort right up to the final goodbye. Thank you to Dr. Sara Denning-Bolle and Adrienne Angelo for their financial support and loving attention to each of them.
A total of 68 grants will be awarded, including the organizations listed on the ballot and to the top 20 write-in vote recipients (at least two write-ins per region).

A brief portrait of Mona Jerome, director of Ever After Mustang Rescue in Biddeford ME.
Ever After Mustang Rescue is a nonprofit organization that rescues and rehabilitates previously adopted mustangs and either transitions them to new homes and useful lives, or offers life-time care to unadoptable horses.
We offer educational programs and mentoring to prospective adopters and other interested persons in the care, handling and training of the wild horse.
We promote interest and awareness in America's Wild Horse through presentations to schools, organizations and other groups.
Our goals are to protect and preserve the health and well being of the American Mustang after adoption.
To provide assistance to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and to adopters through all means available (mentoring, clinics, workshops, etc.).
To educate the public on the value and merits of the breed which in turn will increase the success of future adoptions.
And to reach out to young people "at risk" by creating hands-on opportunities to work with gentled mustangs.
Mona Jerome, Director
Bush Brook Farm was built in 1980 on 63 acres of land, to be home to a 6 year old mustang. It was a long time dream of Mona Jerome and made possible by her devoted husband Brad. It was just the beginning of something bigger and of greater importance.
Mona followed her passion for wild horses and volunteered many hours assisting contractors for the Bureau of Land Management at New England Satellite Adoptions, participated in yearly wild horse workshops offered by least Resistance Training Concepts throughout the west, and learning about the wild horse from those with many years of experience. In addition she has attended and participated in clinics with nationally known trainers.
In 2002, with the encouragement and help of Brad, Mona founded Ever After Mustang Rescue, Training and Education Center. Since that time it has been a refuge for unwanted, neglected and abused mustangs. With nearly 30 years of experience Mona has facilitated the healing of mind and body, restoring the horse to the proud, intelligent creature he is.
Education continues with every horse we work with and continuing to attend workshops and training clinics.
The rescue places an average of 2-3 horses a year to approved homes. The success of these placements can be viewed on the Alumni page (coming soon).
The Rescue Center is also host to several yearly clinics, workshops and training programs for horse owners and any interested parties. See our Events page fmi.
