Last March and April were so so busy with rescues and court/legal type activity. In fact, it was March 6, 2011, that we got the call about Shadow and Bella. That they were standing in a cattle feedlot (authorities called it an animal shelter, ha!) with a herd of horses eating cornstalks and getting no medical attention after they had been starved again. And, they were headed for the loose horse sale in a few days! Some rescue, huh? So life got frantic here for a while. The result was good. We rescued Shadow and Bella. But we did not get enough donations to rescue any of the others. And some did go to slaughter.
So anyway, if all I have to do is horse chores this year in March, I will not complain. Much. Though I could sure use a little help this week. It's going to be muddy now with these warm temps, and we often feed all 17 horses in their stalls when it's so muddy out. It's amazing how quiet 17 horses can be, just the happy munching noises. So just call if you want to help out. 359-0961. thanks.
here's a little picture story from 2 days ago, this past Sunday.
|Shadow's ready to work. Though he and Minerva both made faces about it at first.|
|Where would you like me to put this, Heidi?|
|So, I'll just watch for a while and see how Heidi does it. (Bella was afraid to even look)|
|ok, think I got it!|
|Bella really wasn't very helpful. Very affectionate though. Appreciative of her new home and good food most likely.|
