- White Bird Appaloosa Horse Rescue
Many Hands, Many Thanks!
It takes the talents and efforts of many people to care for rescued horses and this week, we’d like to say a big, whopping thanks to Boy Scout Troop 2880 from Richmond, VA. Shown are: Jake, Tina, Jaylin, Chase Gary, Cynthia, Robert and Nate, who spent last Saturday helping out at the rescue. You guys rock!
Today’s Clearinghouse horse is “Cinnamon” who is listed as a courtesy to the nice folks at the Washington County, MD Humane Society.
Cinnamon is a pleasant, 6-year old mare with nice manners who is being offered as a companion horse, only, because she contracted Lyme disease. She has been treated and cured of the disease, but a veterinary evaluation shows that she will not be sound enough to ride. This girl has had a very rough time so far in her young life but has kept her sunny outlook and fondness for people. With a little help from her friends in Washington County, she is now ready for her forever home. Do you have room in your barn and heart? For further information and adoption materials, please contact Kim at : 301-733-2060 and also find the application materials at: http://hswcmd.org/adoption/application/
Preparations are underway for White Bird’s Second Annual Silent Night Open House. There is much excitement over here because we had such GREAT time last year! This year’s event is on December 13, Friday evening from 5pm to 8pm at Triskelion Farm: 1688 Burke’s Tavern Road, Burkeville, VA. Visitors will be able to meet our rescued horses, tour the barns, have cider and hot chocolate, and there will even be pony rides for the kids on Ocean, our trainer’s pony, whose rides will support rescued horses. Lots more! Please come out and meet the White Bird community in person!
