All the News…
Everyone needs a pat on the back once in awhile. And one of the things that really brightened our day was an email from HorseBreedsInfo, sending us a “Horse Rescue Award for excellence in helping horses in need.” Thanks for thinking about us! We love what we do and it helps us to know that people understand the needs of Appaloosas and other horses in urgent need. These folks, by the way, have a very nice site that provides potential adopters with a description of the various horse breeds. You can find them at: http://www.horsebreedsinfo.com Naturally, we would put Appaloosas at the top of the list for, oh, every purpose. But we are somewhat biased.
We’ve been busy! We have just moved our two new run-in sheds to the rescue (we love you, Craigslist). And our stock trailer, in mid rehab, is now sturdy and serviceable, but still needs repainting and a new bumper. We hope to get to that in the next couple of weeks. We are also preparing to undertake the clearing of the long-awaited quarantine paddock. This will be a real help to us in minimizing the risk of contagion from incoming horses. The contractor will be here on the day after Thanksgiving.
Rising rapidly to the top of the White Bird Star Chart is “Chance,” who has been in training with Allison. This nice boy is still looking for a home. Chance is a really sweet guy who just needs a rider with confidence. He just loves people to pieces and will follow you everywhere. Here’s lookin’ at you, kid!
