Texasgal since it is snowing here I have footprints for evidence.
I would go out an make a plaster mold but I do not do the cold well. I also don't have any plaster either. So looks like you may get away with this one. Especially since Chupacabres have no hair therefore no DNA. Shalom

Just gotta say, WWarrior, I admire you and your wife for your awesome plans for your ranch! You are young enough to make it happen. I'm always amazed at the directions life takes us. Do you know of any ranches with similar programs? My adopted daughter is mentally ill and there were several facilities that had horses and/or equine therapy for girls in their treatment programs that we looked into when she was younger and at home. I can tell you that nothing on this earth scared her, and she never had a bit of fear with horses, either.
I hope that your plans work out, as the potential for helping/healing others would be tremendous!

Raining/sleeting here this morning...

In our area we have several programs for EAP and EAPT and OT but they aren't inpatient shelters exactly. They are outpatient come for a therapy session and leave. We want to do a live in ranch style therapy place. We will have licensed mental health practitioners but it will be predominately a place of escape and a way for them to get healthy interaction with horses and recover from the trauma they endured.

Between Iowa Park, and Wichita Falls, we have a place called Whispers of Hope. They do equine therapy. My boss's grandson has Aspergers ( I can't spell it), a type of Autism. The therapy on horses helped him sooooo much. ANd a friend in New York, has a son who has Cerebral Palsy, he also did horse therapy. She said it was amazing how much it helped him, with balance and strenghth in his legs/arms.
Good luck WW, hope ya'll get that dream!

Worshipwarrior I was going to volunteer my services as a mental health professional until I noticed that you live in Abiline. Set it up around Austin or San Antoinio or any place that winter intrudes very seldom and I might bring some horses too.

I am scaling back on therapy sessions and relocating to collin county and about 30 acres that I own there.
Anybody near the Nevada area. I should be there for about a year while the house is being updated. I am still going to travel back a forth to oversee the farm and conduct a couple of group sessions.
The house needs repairs and I need a break from the stress of my chosen career. Also need to focus on my own recovery and depression from a traumatic issue in my past.
I will still work with AIDS patients and a few of my Veterans but being a pyshcologist is not always an easy job.
Besides I am taking lessons for english and a few of the horses need to be trained and shown. Not many Arabian or english riders in my neck of the woods. Shalom

Also we already use 4 of her horses for equine assisted therapy as well. We have a program called HERO here that is equine assisted physical and occupational therapies and my wife is becoming certified in EAP which is equine assisted psychotherapy so we are planning to do some of that soon.

My wifes dream is actually to one day own a ranch for abused women and children in which they come and work and live and get therapy from working with horses and cows goats and things. We are moving in the right direction with what we are doing now and hoping that in the next 10 or 15 years to realize her dream.[/quote]

Please do let me know. I would prefer to keep them together as they have been barn mates a long time. Where are you located? I want to be sure they would go to a great place, and would want to come out to see your place if that was ok. My ultimate fantasy for them would be for them to be in some sort of equine therapy situation. I think they both have the temperment for it and I know they would be well loved.

DB we hardly have winter here. I mean yeah we get a few days of freezing or below temps but normally its around 50 or so during the winter. Though likely it would be somewhere in east TX. My wife would prefer some actual trees and not the mesquite bushes as she refers to them.

I was thinking about finding some property around Vernon possibly. I've got some relatives that live there and I've visited a few times and I like the area.
