Retransmission of a post on another blog. Lisa rescues a sick horse.



Lisa from Two Bears Farm has rescued a small mare that had serious health conditions.  This caught my eye because my daughter rescued a horse that was starving to death ( she really needed a $200.00 a month stable bill, but I understand why she did it.) so seeing someone else willing to do that surprised me.

If you would like to read about it, here's the link.  There are some good people left. It's too easy to start thinking that most people are a waste of air. That's not really true.

  1. As long as you have the resources all is well.

    And it's easy to think that way because most people make it easy if you get my meaning :)

  2. Thank you so much for sharing and for caring! Francie is doing well and I received enough in donations to go over and do the deworming program with the two horses I couldn't take!!

    1. I will ask Elizabeth if she knows anyone in horse rescue who might take the other two. She is really plugged into animal rescue, although aside from Seamus and the odd ferret she mostly has unwanted exotic lizards and snakes, because they fit in her little house. I put the link because I thought it was a good thing to know, especially at Christmas time.

  3. I know. Most people are alive only because it's illegal to kill them.

    She's a practical person. She had room at her place. My daughter now........

    4. It's a big place. Cats help keep mice and such out of my barn store room, and they help kill the snakes too.

  4. Harry - we get our beautiful manure for our gardens from a horse rescue farm...they currently have 22 rescue horses from around the island. oh man - but the poop! anyway, all of our 3 cats are rescues. a friend of ours found a fourth, called us to come and take it but it had run off. everyone here knows that if they see any animal to call us...thank goodness we haven't gotten too many calls because we would take all of them.

    your daughter and Lisa have very beautiful hearts and souls...that's how God designed them.

    you have a beautiful soul, too, Harry. you raised your daughter to be who she is.

    teehee. who would have ever guessed that Harry is a big softie and raised a beautiful daughter...and a beautiful son. i have read much about them from your blogs and from your emails...oh, i know. they get it from their mother right?

    Harry, there are some truly beautiful people still left in this crazy world of ours. i will always believe in them. thank you Lisa.

    much love to you and yours always. your friend,
    kymber

    1. Kymber, you have a good view of the world. Positive attitude is everything. I'm always a soft touch for animals. I like them and they never did me any harm without a good reason, which is a lot more than I can say of humanity in general. I think you must be right, my kids got my wife's genetic makeup.
      There are some good people though, I need to remember that. If I read someone's blogs they made the cut!

  6. I just wanted to say thanks again! One of your readers made a donation for the two horses left behind - so awesome. I hope he got my email saying thanks - the first one I sent bounced back. People are really making a difference :-)

    1. I'm glad to hear that. There are some good folks out there. I talked to Elizabeth a good while last night. She said if the remaining two are "gaited" horses she may be able to find an outfit near you to take them. She should be stopping by your blog soon if she hasn't already.
