What a stack of new THANK YOU donor cards I’ve got here to mail. ALL HAND ADDRESSED By your’s truly, so I’m hoping the postal people can read my writing when they go in the mail tomorrow!





A silver buckskin Akhal Teke. . .

Pretty much the most amazing coloration I’ve seen. ever.





not only that, but horses teach me this every single day!





After a few days of intense ground training, Adrianne felt that last night was finally the right time to take the maiden voyage on our new “Boot Camp” rescue horse Skye.

If you haven`t heard the story, Skye was placed with us by Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue Inc. from Shoals, West Virginia. Heart of Phoenix rescued Skye from a terrible situation, and felt, after watching us for months on Facebook, that R & M Stables was the right place to send Skye to help her regain her trust in people, and to begin a sound (Under saddle) training program so that it will be viable, and safe to place her up for adoption. Thanks Heart of Phoenix for your trust!!

We obviously have a long way to go, but last night was a great start! Let`s watch Skye, and Adrianne work!!!








No signs of Beauty, the draft cross, on German Ridge today. She hadn’t come back to the hay and grain we left, so we are going to get a search party together tomorrow to comb the area. If you can come out, please let me know
