We had a beautiful sunset last night. The sun reflected off the mountains to the east of us, which is the view from our front porch. This is the backside of Mt. Charleston.

2009 is rapidly coming to an end. We have all endured so very much in this past year with the loss of loved ones, the economic times falling heavy on all of our shoulders and the trials and tribulations of everyday life.

We wonder to ourselves, "How will I make it?"

But we pick ourselves up by the boot straps, holding our heads high and we push forward with determination, facing each day as a challenge and overcoming the obstacles thrown in its path, Never Giving Up and Never Letting it Beat You.

All of us at Miracle Horse Rescue would like to thank you for your support during 2009. You made a huge difference in the lives of our horses and for this we are forever grateful.

May 2010 bring you JOY, GOOD HEALTH, and HAPPINESS but most of all PEACE

Thank you again to everyone for what you do to make a positive difference in our world.

Holiday wishes from AJ and Hope

Twas The Day Before XMAS

And All in the Barn

Were Nibbling Their Hay

As they tried to keep warm

---- --

The kids clacked their hooves

Creating a clatter

The horses looked up

And asked “what’s the matter”

-- --

Hope and AJ just smiled

“We have quite the story

Of a place called Miracle

Where horses live in glory”

-- --

“Where equines are rescued

From places so sad…

To find love and salvation,

A safe place from the bad….:

-- --

They talked of their Gwammie

Of Aunties galore

Who help unloved horses

Find love and much more….

-- --

The horses bowed low

First in shock and dismay

Then in thanks to you all

For all that you gave

-- --

Then they whinnied with joy,

"Goodness makes the world bright!!!

Merry XMAS, dear frens

Much Lub this Great Night!!!”

Good Morning All,

First, I would like to apologize for not being on or posting. Rob and I have had the flu. Amy had the bug for two days as well, so we have been dragging. Amy is better and came back yesterday. I am doing much much better, Rob however is still under the weather. Despite all of this going on, everything is good here. Even when you are not feeling well, there are some things that just make you laugh and the following photo taken yesterday had us in stitches.

Amy had been filling water barrels, and doing some mucking. Some of the water over flowed causing a good size mud puddle on the already damp ground, and well, I think you can guess what happened...yep Amy slipped and did a header in said mud and this is the end result. I know that we should never laugh at someone's misfortune but you must admit this is funny. Amy was even laughing.

All of the horses are doing just wonderful. I will try and get some photos for you today or tomorrow. I am feeling better but still feel a bit zapped.

Charity is doing remarkable she has gained so much weight. I am going to contact Dr. Hadland in a week or so to schedule an Ultra Sound. I would like to get an idea of about how far along she is.

Katie, Cosmo and Candy are doing quite well. Katie and Cosmo are putting on their weight as they should be. Cosmo's feet are growing and he is moving very well.

THANK ALL OF YOU for everything!

Good Morning All,

First and foremost...We would like to thank each of you for your moral support as well as your financial support. You have and do make a difference in the lives of our horses, especially for those that will live out the remainder of our lives with us. They will never be adopted due to physical disabilities, mental trauma..all from the hands of other humans. They are all very special horses, but the ones that are blind and crippled and even the ones with their mental issues, prove to be very very special. They do require a lot more, special feed, and vet needs and so much more comfort in their lives.

It has been, wonderful to see Half Moon in the football field. He has opened up to other horses, but he does have his moments, and the other horses seem to sense his changes and just stay away from him.

Little Bear has improved 1000 percent. He does not even look like the same horse, nor does he look like the dejected horse he arrived as. His ringbone will never go away but he does move somewhat better due to your support of supplements from Shadow Mountain Feed. You can all pat yourselves on the back for what you have done for the horses...incredible.

Today we are not suppose to be over the high 40's today, and wind gusts up to 30+ so kinda of a yuck day.

I do hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning to All,

Well, it was wonderful weekend. We were busy, and got to have a wonderful ride with Amy and Gail. We took Misty, Candy and BC and they did great. We took a ride over to Shadow Mtn Feed and the horses thought they were in a buffet. Candy gave me a few fits coming home and was giving a few signals of wanting to run home, so instead she got a few spins and walking away from home. She got the message.

Justice's lesson was a bit more difficult. He's stubborn and likes to do things his way, but we managed a good session. Little/big stinker.

Everyone s doing great! Apple is doing wonderful in her new home as well as Grace and Glory. What more could we ask for? Especially for horses that were destined to a horrific demise.

We had a wonderful article written in one of our local newspapers about what we do, and this also gave me the prime opportunity to discuss PMUs, slaughter etc. It is not on line yet, but when it is we will post the link.

Otherwise, all is well and everything begins to rock and roll next week for shades. Just in one section we have over 315' to cover, plus another 150' and then the turn outs. Progress. Tried to paint CJ's Memorial Bench but will have to wait for warmer day so it does not freeze and pop.

Take care all!

To All: Thank you all for your support during these difficult times for all. I cannot begin to tell you just how grateful we are that you have chosen MHR.

Charity was a wonderful girl walking to the other round pen, not one issue whatsoever, and she allowed Rob to pick up her front feet and clean them. She was not overly happy, only came up once, but went with the program. He did not try the back as he did not want to risk a swift kick. Today they will put the roof on her stall and we will then work out camera logistics. I may have to get another camera and have an auto switch to capture it all during foaling. Lighting will eventually be going up everywhere, but this all takes time. It's dark out here at night.

This morning as the sun was coming up I had the opportunity to view Spirit jacking w/ Sampson. He is such a stinker, messing with everyone....sigh and he wonders why they get aggravated with him....LOL

Little Bear looks wonderful, he has such a wonderful attitude. The ringbone is there but with the administering of therma flex, and B-L Paste (natural bute) he is doing well. He loves his grub and what a personality!

I was so proud of Justice, we are going to be practicing the round pen ponying for a bit, then we will move out onto the property for a while, so many places to ride. Then the big day will be when we go ride in the field. Of course, we will have to have photos. Justice wanted me to relay a message to AJ and Hope...he thinks it is so cool how far they have come, but he agrees it is not easy growing up and what is expected of him, but he thought he was a big boy. Mom is so excited about this, she acts so silly and giggles when I do something right.

Once again, Thank you all for your support and if you have the inclination, you may contact Shadow Mountain Feed 775-727-5527 and they will take your donation and apply it to MHR's account. Many, Many, Many thanks for everything!

Big day for Justice. It all went very well and we ended on a good note.

Candy is an excellent horse for this. She and I also went off property today and rode out in the field across the road.
