Equine Voices Event- Meet Touche
 
The Equine Voices fundrasier was yesterday and it went so well! I had to get up at 5am to be there by 7. The event started at 11:30 and there was so many people!! The event ended at 3:30pm and by the time it was over, I got an amazing tan. lol
I want to give a HUGE shout out to appyrider4life for donating some tack and books. The Tack sale was huge and we sold almost everything! Your saddle pad, wraps, and bridle got sold. Thank you so much!

During the event, the Equine Voices trainer, Carol Grubb, was working with Gulliver and her horse Touche. He is so freakin gorgeous you guys!!
He was saved 4 years ago from a couple who was using him as a stud and they used to show him. But the saddles they used on him didn't fit him properly and he now has unfixable back issues. His owners were going to send him to slaughter if no one would take him. He can be ridden lightly though. Carol took him in 4 years ago and they are an amazing pair, I love watching them work. So enough talking I'll share some pics of this beautiful guy!

First off, here is Carol.

They let him run around a bit before Carol started working with him.

Of course there were other horses there, there was also a mini donkey, JD.
JD was rescued a year or so ago from a couple who used him for kids parties. They would make him stand in one spot without food or water for 8 hours straight, in a costume, having to take photos for kids parties. He usually had to do this everyday! The poor little guy, he's so cute though and in good hands now.

Of course Gulliver and Kachina were there too.
Gulliver was not so sure about JD. lol

Smokey Joe was also there and a Arabian/Mustang pony named Beavis was there. Beavis used to be a drug running horse.

Isn't he? XD
A drug running horse is a horse that is used by people to smuggle drugs over the Mexican boarder and into the U.S.
