NEW From Oregon

I first became interested in the horse world last Feb. by a little colt by the name of WindChill..Since then, I have grown to love and hopefully understand this beautiful animal so much more.
I currently volunteer at Equine Outreach Rescue in Bend, Oregon. They have 75+ rescues on the property and match volunteers with a horse for ground training getting the horses confidence and ready for adoption.
I have learned so much in the past few months and continue to do so.

They have a new rescue that is in serious medical condition and underweight. Her name is Buttercup. I have been going and visiting with her, grooming and massaging her legs every day. You can see her and hear about her progress on her blog:
Buttercup - Equine Outreach's new rescue

Also you can read more about me and follow my training and experiences at EOI here:
Fostering a Horse

Looking forward to sharing and learning.
Bend, Oregon
