A Home for Cinco and Ali

Bill and Monica moved to East Texas from the Houston area for one purpose: to provide rescue horses Cinco and Ali with a loving home.

In 2015 the Houston SPCA rescued 207 malnourished and neglected horses from a dairy farm in Conroe, TX. Cinco was one of the worst among those rescued, weighing in at 400 pounds underweight.

Ali had been rescued a year earlier from a different case. During their time together at the SPCA, Cinco and Ali became best friends and everyone hoped they would be adopted together.

“We saw these two guys and fell in love with them,” Bill said.

Driving home from their first visit to the SPCA, Bill and Monica asked each other, of all the horses they saw, which horse they wanted. They unanimously decided they wanted the pair who wouldn’t do well without the other. “We have to have them both!” they said.

Bill says, “And look at them now…”

Bill and Monica found some old family land that had been divided up in the East Texas area. All it needed was barn!

Bill and Monica chose a 36’ X 36’ Raised Center Aisle barn design with 2 side porches. The roof, trim and wainscot are Burnished Slate color and the walls are Light Stone.

Some of the options they included are an automatic waterer, wash area equipped with hot water, ceiling fans and stall lights.

Cinco and Ali know what to do!

Instead of the usual Dutch doors, Bill and Monica requested sliding side doors. It creates good air flow and offers a nice open area for the stalls.
