I made a trip to the trainer's place on Monday evening to see him work with Lady. She is coming along nicely. She'll be there another two to three weeks. Cynthia, another volunteer the rescue, and her husband also went. Cynthia and I both enjoyed seeing Lady, in some ways she was a different horse. I've always known she was a girl with a big heart, but to see her being so affectionate and responsive to the trainer was so touching. Granted she does still need some work, but he said she is doing really well. The work he did with her Monday evening was 100% better than the previous time he worked with her he said. He also said he thinks that given time she might make someone a really nice horse. I'm excited to go out and see her again.

Thanks to all who came out to the Frontier Western celebration in ElDorado yesterday and stopped by to see us. The kids enjoyed the $2 horse rides... and we had several repeat customers too. One dad even asked if I knew where the ATM was. :)
We had lots of people ask how they could volunteer, others made cash donations. We also had one very nice couple from Butler County ask how they could get involved. They have some hay they'd like to donate to the rescue. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! It is because of the generosity of all you great people out there that the rescue is able to operate.
I will be posting some pictures to our website later today, or sometime tomorrow, but in the meantime... let me leave you with this picture of Dazzle, one of our rescues. She very much enjoyed sunbathing and catching some zzz's. Yes... she really is napping in this pic.

Was able to get out and take some pics tonight - this is one of my faves

And this one too... Star. Her mama, Lady, is currently at the trainer for 30 days. Star is an absolute sweetheart, and a beautiful girl. Definitely looks like she is going to be big and solid like her mama. She is already yearling size... but is only around six months old (sorry, I'm not sure of her actual birthdate).

Still haven't been able to publish the updated website. Customer service at the webhost company told me 48 hours ago that it'd be 24-48 hours before the problem on their end was fixed. Sad thing... I'd already been trying for the 48 hours prior to that. So... hang in there... I'll get them published as soon as they fix the problem. :(

We will soon have a few new residents at the rescue... stud colts. I'll post more information about them as soon as I have some. What I do know is that they will be at the rescue for 30 days... and ready for adoption. If you have ever wanted to start out with a colt and do all the training yourself... here's your chance. Email us and we'll get you more information!
