Frog Pond Draft Horse Rescue Moment of Silence

If you have never heard of Frog Pond Draft Horse Rescue, you should check them out. They do really good work. They specialize in helping out the work horses of the world and do their very best by them.

They have had some sad news recently. Two of their horses, Lotto and Titan, have extremely debilitating problems that Frog Pond has drained their funds trying to treat. Lotto suffers from severe canker in 3 of 4 feet. His story and pictures are here : Frog Pond Farm -- Draft Horse Rescue Titan has ringbone and is on the elderly side.

Tomorrow at 11, Frog Pond will be laying these gentle giants to rest. They have done all that they can for them and it is time to say 'when'. Please keep them in your thoughts.

They are encouraging a moment of silence tomorrow in honor of these horses passing. If you would like to join them, here is their facebook event page. Log In | Facebook

We have all suffered the loss of a loved one and these boys will not be forgotten.

= ( Aww I was literally just browsing through the website then I found your thread. Makes me sad....but happy knowing they won't be in pain anymore. Lotto and Titan will be greatly missed and the world will be losing two truly special giants, but on the bright side Heaven will be gaining them.

Sometime in 2005-6 I went there to pick up a TB/Percheron mare a fellow boarder had arranged to get from them. I was not aware they were a rescue facility at the time. The mare was nice, a light case of ringbone, had been used in college competition on the string that was kept for the visiting team. I was able to do some online work with her and ride a few times, very tall I could see into the hay-loft above the stalls from her back. She had a habit of bolting in the instant between halter off/bridle on though, without warning of course. She must have practiced it many times to become so good at it.
It is a very nice place, lots of outside space for the horses, an old shall we say "airy" barn, but clean and well kept. I would definitely recommend them. I would not want to attempt the driveway let alone the lane back up to the fields and barn in muddy conditions though. I certainly hope for the best for them, and peace on earth.

They are very nice to work with and are very very focused on finding their horses the best of homes. I respect them the most for actually keeping touch with the horses they place. Not just loading them up and checking in once a year. They keep tabs pretty closely.
