Giving thanks

This going to be a busy week with family and friends coming for Thanksgiving along with the typical daily work. But enough about work, we all do enough of that.

We wanted to put our THANKS out to all of you before the day great Turkey Day arrives and we are all falling asleep from the wonderful meals we have been blessed with.

We are Thankful to everyone, for everything, even the smallest of things which are huge to us. We have a team of individuals who are constantly working behind the scenes in every aspect, from Fundraising to remembering Birthdays, Anniversaries etc., from taking the time to find that beautiful cake to celebrate that special occasion. It is the little things that matter.

We appreciate everything and we mean everything that comes the horses way. You Make the Difference. We are thankful to Jeri Young, who is an Avon Representative who contacted MHR and is conducting a fundraiser on our behalf (November 22 - December 5). Information regarding this can be found on Jeri's web page. *Important*** Don't forget to put MHR in the promotional code box on the check out page in order for MIRACLE HORSE RESCUE to get the credit.This info can be found via our blog and face book. With everyone working together we have many, many things to be thankful for.

So with this said, we wish you all a very special Thanksgiving, give thanks and know as you sit across from family and friends this special day that you are truly blessed in so many ways. Remember those that have left us too soon, and be thankful for the special place you hold in your heart for them and know that they are always with you.

Baby and Gus

I would not believe it unless I had seen it, and I captured the picture. As most of you know Baby is a horse who never ever was socialized with anyone but her mom. She arrived at MHR&S at the age of 22yrs old with her mom. She is now approximately 28 yrs old. You could barely walk her on a lead and doing her feet was next to impossible. Now those couple of things have been overcome, but she was not happy with other horses. Well, we do have something to be thankful for: she has found Gus. She is on the left and you just see her backside, but she is next to him which she has NEVER done with any other horse. I took this from the front porch as I did not want to disturb this peaceful moment in time.

The economy continues to deal painful blows here in Nevada. I'm sorry to say that it has now hit the family of Justice's adoptive parents and he will be returning to MHR this afternoon, Sunday, November 13, 2011.

Truth be told, it will be nice to see his face every day again.

Gus and Shania

From the very beginning of the establishment of MHR&S, our contract states that if an adopter can no longer care for our horse it must be returned.

On November 8, 2011, Shania and Gus were returned due to financial reasons. Gus was adopted long before any of us ever met and never made it on our website. Both were adopted by the same individual. They are healthy, cared for and loved. This change in their dad's life is a tough one, but he knows the importance of their welfare.

So with this said, we are going to have to add a few more bales of hay. We are not panicking, we are being ProActive not ReActive. This is all part of our rescues policy. We hope that you will join us in welcoming them home.

Gus is approximately 23 yrs old, he is a Quarter Horse. Gus came to us from a trail riding company. They felt he was all used up and had to go. Well, Gus was not all used up, he just needed his own person. After being adopted, Gus received six months off from any riding, but had daily positve contact. This was so good for him, he got to be a horse on his own terms. He then went on to spend many hours with his dad wandering the desert exploring trails. Gus is not for the weak at heart per his dad, do not let his age fool you. Gus requires a VERY EXPERIENCED rider.

Shania is 23 yrs old now as well. She was formerly owned by a San Bernadino County Deputy Sheriff and a member of a Search and Rescue Team. She has undergone some extensive training, we actually saw a photo of a helicopter hovering above Shania and three other horses while the riders were touching the skids. Simply amazing. Shania was retired from her duties as she began stumbling on the trails. With some foot work and hours of trying to figure out what was going on with her, it all came together. When Shania's mind wanders she will stumble, but if you keep her attention on what you are doing she does not have any issues. Her dad proved this, by the hours spent riding her and learning what he could from her and what she was telling him. Shania requires an EXPERIENCED RIDER who must be able to handle her on the ground as well. She likes to get ahead of you when walking, but you can get her to quit if you tell her so.

Welcome home Gus and Shania!

Today we said good-bye to our beloved Ewtie, who has been an intregal part of our lives and part of the whole MHR&S experience. She was my dream pup and we had her since she was five weeks old, that was 12 yrs ago. I taught her how to herd chickens, and she used to ensure they remained off the patio and would look back at you so she would receive her praise for a job well done. She loved going out to feed the horses, but knew her bounds. She would meet us at the gate no matter how long we were gone, whether it be five minutes or five hours she was always there. She will always be with us, as she has given us wonderful memories....See you at the gate Ewtie.
