We've reached the end of our foster agreement. I'm pleased to say that looking at Sedona & Cash now, you'd never know a few months ago they were emaciated, starving horses. Sedona is looking very pregnant & would be a wonderful opportunity for someone who wants the wonder of having a foal without contributing to overbreeding. I can't imagine her foal won't be an absolute delight. She & Cash have fabulous, people loving temperaments. They've been gracious & gentle with all I've asked of them. Sedona now has the run of our "foaling paddock" as well as the front pasture/pond. She shares a fence line with the other horses where they hang out, visit & Cash still nurses about once a day there. Cash is the little man with my 3 mares. They had finished off a large bale of hay several days ago & had to get by with me putting out stacks in the evening, which of course run out. So they were all excited to have a new large round bale to munch on non-stop. As I was heading back to the barn after getting them set up...Cash looked up at me, left they hay bounty & started following me back. I stopped & waited for him to catch up. He came over, put his head in my hand & I swear said thanks....He knows someone is taking care of him & appreciates it. I imagine all rescues are special...but having know these two personally can say they ARE special. Follow the first link here to find out about adopting them & many other rescues available. The second link is to a slide-show of their progress since coming here. Will get some updated pics of them, this holiday weekend & post here soon.
This blog is an attempt to provide updates on the progress & goings on at our burgeoning little horse farm. Everything here is a work in progress from our facilities to the horses & of course my own horsemanship. After finding my way back to horses as an adult I spent several years learning about & enjoying dressage. Since that time, I've found my way to natural horsemanship & love not only the answers it provides but the focus on relationship. For that dream of riding off into the sunset with the perfect calm "best friend" is truely my ultimate goal.
