To everyone who has been calling, emailing, stopping by to help, donate and support what I am doing here. All of your generous donations are so very much appreciated. I am completely overwhelmed with the outpouring of support. Thank you, thank you.

Today all of the horses were bathed and freed of their relentless mud balls. Some of them had to have their bellies shaved because the mud was so hard that it was pulling out their hair. All of the horses stood so patiently while we cleaned them up and when it was their turn to go into the arena they all bucked, farted and rolled in the sand. It was so good to see them moving happily around and they made it obvious that they were grateful to be free of the mud/poop balls that they had been imprisoned with for so long.

I am completely overwhelmed with the outpouring of support and deeply appreciate everything that has been done for these horses. Thank you so much and God bless you all.

We have Seven More Horses in for Rehabilitation

It's official, my barn is completely full to capacity with the seven new horses that just moved in.

These horses were in a hell of a mess and really needed some help.

With every rescue case I am involved in, I learn new things.

With every case I think, "Okay, now I've seen it all." Every time, I'm wrong.

There is always something new that I hadn't seen before.

And this is it. A Henneke Body Scale 1 that is still alive. Wow.

I've rescued a lot of horses in my lifetime, so many that I've lost count but I'm sure it's over 200. Never EVER have I seen a horse be as grateful and actually show their graditude like these did. It moved me like nothing has ever mooved me before. One mare, after being moved into my arena acutally walked up to me and layed down right there in front of me. If I hadn't stepped back she would have been laying on my feet. She just layed there and looked at me and if she could talk I swear she'd be saying, "Thank you so much for getting us out of there."

Upadate on Saphire and Jitterbug

As you can see from this photo they are living the life of luxury and Saphire is just about to pop! From the looks of it she is due any minute.

Thank you Shelby for this update.

Today was FUN!

I got to spend all day out in my barn and had lots of visiters comming and going throughout the entire day and of course the phone rings nearly non stop. But that is all okay, it's nice when people come to help with the animals, donate much needed supplies and consider adopting one or two of the residents.

I've been gathering together a bunch of tack to take to the Canby Tack Sale to sell and raise money for the rescue. I'm hoping to sell enough to pay to get some dental work done on a couple of my older horses and possibly buy some panels for temporary stalls and a couple of water troughs. If you plan on going to the sale, make sure you stop by my booth and see what we've got to sell. If you have any extra tack you would like to donate to be sold to raise funds, let me know. I can either come pick it up or you could drop it off here and visit all of the horses.

Debbie - Thank you so much for your continued support, donations and help. You always seem to know exactly what I am about to run out of.

Tammy and kelsey - Thank you for all of your help out in the barn and for giving Snoot a good home. It is fun teaching Kelsey how to ride and train snoot.

Barbara - Thank you for doing all of me legal work and especially for getting my 501 c 3 done.

Kathleen - Thank you for cleaning my stalls all week and dragging me out for trail rides, it's nice to get out of the barn now and then.

John - Thank you for being the best, most understanding husband on the PLANET!
I am not afraid of death and I am not selfish therefor no animal shall suffer at the hands of my weaknesses.
