- Thank you for your speech .. it really made me feel more confident in this option ...You are really good at this ... you could even make me believe ill have superpowers if I eat poo ... ( don't do it ! ) :))
Srry for bothering you again with this but ... can you send me your e-mail adress in private ? I really reaaally want to send you something ... I will certainly regret it ... but you would probably like it ... even if it isn't good ..
- They do not see him as a predator or aggressor.....some may disagree with his non aggressive approach, but it has worked miracles on Beau and epona. Both horses were extremely violent and very dangerous when they came to us. Even Epona....imagine how frightening and dangerous an angry and violent 2,000 lb draft horse is!!!! We actually witnessed her attack her previous trainer. We feared for the woman's life. Of course, she was of the "be aggressive and violent" approach, and Epona almost killed her. Epona is now so gentle and calm, small children often pet her and hug her...
- Jared is an experienced trainer with a gentle approach and has transformed Beau from a lunatic into a friendly and affectionate and obedient friend. He has a way with horses...a special touch and manner that allows them to both respect him ....and trust him....no fear involved. So he is going to volunteer to train these horses so that when they are healthy, they are well behaved and friendly, which will increase their chances of someone adopting them. If they remain wild and fractious, most people won't want to deal with them. He's a superb trainer....no aggression, no pain, no dominance....rather he gains their trust, asks for their cooperation, and shows them what he wants them to do......approached this way, horses do not feel the need to revert to their innate "flight or fight" instincts.
- You MUST go there. You know it in your heart....those horses are calling out to you. You also know you can't change the world or how the facility is run.....but you CAN bring comfort and peace to these noble creatures who have not known such things in their lives....
Even as i write this, I am preparing to call our local SPCA and donate some hay as they recently rescued 21 starving horses, 3 of which have died. We are also planning to volunteer to help care for the horses. We are experienced in horse care and are going to donate time towards grooming, walking and stall cleaning...just like you will be doing. .
- Perhaps the workers don't know the danger. we shouldn't assume they know and just don't care...we can HOPE they just don't know the danger, right? Also, if you go there, of course you cannot change the entire workings of the shelter or the people who work there, BUT you can put some peace and comfort into those horses' lives. Even if all you do is groom them, well...that feels good to them because they get itchy and dried mud feels scratchy....and it helps their skin be healthier. So even something as simple as grooming a horse, can make a difference. Sure, you cannot change everything wrong with the facility, but you CAN do things, which seem insignificant to you now, which will brighten these horses' lives.....things like grooming them, walking them....and most of all showing them that not all humans are bad. Isn't that the most important thing you can do?? TEACH them, teach them some humans have gentle hands, soft voices...and kind hearts......
- Yes, they probably wouldn't listen to you if you mentioned the hay, which is my main concern...BUT you could print out or find some articles in magazines or on the internet which discuss why a horse's hay needs to be protected from moisuture and rain as much as possible and which outlines the horrible consequences that could happen if a horse eats moldy hay. Frankly, I am surprised there hasn't been alot of horses die due to the way that hay is open to rain and snow... unless there has been alot of deaths and no one really hears about it..... wet hay doesnt just give them a stomach ache ...it can kill them. Molds and worse...botulism spores.....can grow inside those bales if they get wet....and botulism is one of the most deadliest toxins on earth.
- The thing is ... as a volounteer I don't think they would take my opinion into consideration ( and even more because I didn't have contact with a horse in my life ... ) And if I'll go there I REALLY want to help them not just say ill help them ...
- Oh ... I didn't see the Arhive button there ... some there are videos not photos ... if you click on them you can see more ... I must say I didn't like some of the videos I've seen ... can you check them out too ?
"Cal injunghiat" = stabbed horse ( The man that stabbed him ,5 TIMES, was trying to get revenge on a barman that didn't want to give him beer for free ... and some of the people that were asked what happened there stated " What's so wrong ? We eat horses" ... looks like some people in my country eat horses too ... yet it was mentioned that Romania has an animal protection law .... what can I say more about this other then ... WHY IS THIS WORLD LIKE THIS?! )
"Iapa gestanta" = pregnant mare ( Yea .. I know Romanian sounds really awfull )
Btw ... today my classmate was reading a book called "The Host" by Stephenie Meyer ... one of the main characters in that book was someone called Jared ... does this book has anything to do with your sons name ? xD just asking ..
- The bricks and wood piles should be cleared up, but the fencing looks good... another concern would be the hay storage in the Doinita- iapa gestanta. I cannot tell for sure from the photo but the hay looks to be open to rain and snow. Hay for horses must be kept dry and protected from rain and moisture or it will mold. And that can be deadly for horses. so, the facility looks to have a few minor management problems, as in the hay storage and the piles of bricks/wood...otherwise it looks to be enclosed with sturdy fencing, which is very important.
The only thing that really bothered me was hay storage and the man with the big stick in the Cal Naravas photo. I would be very interested in knowing what the man in the photo was doing. He seems to be holding the stick in a threatening manner...I hope I am incorrect in thinking this.
