She was neglected and in poor body condition. Horrible teeth kept her in pain as her body began to shut down. I hand fed her for days to get some nutrition in before the worst happened. She was my shadow and always in search of a kind touch. Adaiah became all I knew she could be and now resides in a most loving home.
I wasn't sure she'd survive the drive home; Not only did she survive, Rumour thrived and surprised us with a baby boy we named, Dasher. Her life began when I purchased her from a kill buyer.
Born small and bottle fed, Dasher still didn't get the colostrum he needed. I slept in the barn for 2 1/2 months to help him nurse, keep blood sugar up, hold him during seizures and many trips for surgeries at UT of Knoxville. Although told to put Dasher down, he wanted to live. He survived with prayer and beat the odds of hernia tangled with one testicle, blood & bone infection and "ballerina syndrome". He stands today beside me and remains a Whippoorwill.
A sad case of being seized by the state due to family issues, Doc was separated from home and family. Not in the best of health, he came here. In time he returned to his full potential and now resides in the best foster home I could have asked for. Doc today is surrounded by love.
With God guiding my heart, I happened upon the pitiful girl in a stud pen inside an auction barn. Already tagged by a kill buyer, she became a Whippoorwill instead. Today she is fostered by the most loving family. Esther was once a pacer and her tattoo brought to light some of her past but, now only her present life of happiness matters.
Our precious Cody came to us with a broken hip that ,after ex rays, were told could not be helped. His trail rides were over but, to us it didn't matter. His true value was that of kindness, trust and greeting all who visited here. He loved children and enjoyed the attention and occasional pony rides. His eyes were kind and his heart was huge. He won a wonderful place in a loving home but cancer was another battle he could not win. I've never met a sweeter horse as his joy was found in everything and every touch of kindness. He soars high and free now, on Heavens wind.
With angelic eyes and the face of a baby, Sable won our hearts instantly. We found out later that she was in her 20's. We got to her in the nick of time and enjoyed the changes as her body healed, becoming whole again. Never a moments trouble and a very affectionate girl, Sable is a angel. She now lives in her adoptive home surrounded by love.
This boy. So many days he'd waited to be seen. The day I laid eyes on him, I kissed his muzzle and promised I'd return for him. He was honest and kind from day one. Many fell in love with him and he became such a wonderful part of our lives. He now resides in Texas with the love of little hands and his adoring mother. What a BIG sweet heart.
Rescued from a slaughter house in LA., Priscilla was shipped to us for a soft place to land. From day one she was a beautiful girl to watch. She had, in the past, pulled buggies and turned out to be perfect under saddle. She now lives in her forever home in Texas with all the love she always deserved.
A friend had lost her heart horse and I wasn't sure she was ready to open her life to another but, I sent her a photo of a very sad boy. He was beginning to shut down physically but, he showed every sign of wanting to live. Charger was a fighter and he made a huge comeback. He lives now in his forever home with all the love he could dream of. Well and wonderful.
