How many times have you felt like you couldn't go on and extended your arms to a soft horse and sobbed in his mane? Or a fuzzy cat or your old dog.
Animal's are sent to slaughter and abused and it is horrible. I hate slaughter and am glad it is not allowed in PA. I do realize that some people are starving and yes, horses are like cows or pigs to people in other nations. I still wish that we didn't have to kill them. Animal abuse is the worst thing that could happen. Horses and other animals have done so much for us. I love them with all my heart . I help at a rescue. Here are some stories.
Out of the blue... and slightly blue is how we found a shivering little dog in a pile of snow one snowy, stormy January morning, apparently tossed into our fenced horse pasture at LCR.
A junior rescuer, Taylor was on her way to school and waiting for the bus, discovered the half-frozen pup, a Pug, sitting in the snow. She immediately, called for our help and with the school bus waiting, she pointed out the little pup and of to school she went. With a little perseverance and coaxing, we were able to corral and catch him.
Now, the story goes on 'til he is adopted to a nice house. But, how could someone do this. Obviously the dog was scared.. A horse adopted from this same rescue has been on to the Pony Finals in Kentucky, USEF Pony Jumpers, USPC Show Jumping and Linden Grays Youth Dressage Festival who is in training with Jeanne Shigo, a CCI Level Eventer.
Animals are precious and are forever companions.....
