“Show me your horse and I will tell you who you are.” – English Proverb
Sistersville, WV – Mares – 10 years, 15 hands and another is 8, 14hh and both ride but it has been a few years back – No fee to approved home
It is my greatest hope that the horses in rescue find homes as quickly as possible.
Logically, of course. . .we hope this because that opens up a space to save another, another that likely has no hope beyond this organization’s ability to step in. . .
But that isn’t why I say this, I say it because I know horses are astute, sensitive creatures. They are in limbo, they are waiting. . .I know they are aware the rescue isn’t the end of their journey.
We as rescuers are stretched thin, always.
Did I scratch him, did I brush her, did I speak a kind word to them all, get current photos, give him a treat, too. . .it goes on. It all sometimes runs together. I can never learn all of their quirks, their sweet spots, their dislikes.
We rehab, we love and give what we can, but we are not the final place for these horses.
They deserve more. They deserve you, wherever you are, to find them, to offer what we cannot offer, to be what we cannot be.
Look outside the box. . .if you’re looking for a trail partner, a show prospect, a pasture ornament, a first horse, a last horse. . . realize that a purchase need never be your first choice.
Consider adoption. . .
Many of these horses have been waiting their whole lives for you.
