Last weekend I had the honor of hosting some wonderful people attending the Homes for Horses Coalition Conference here in Nashville.
We had 11 attendees staying at my two farms representing rescues throughout the Southeast and California. These people work tirelessly and selflessly throughout the year to save & rehabilitate horses.
I made some new friends, learned quite a bit that I didn’t already know about the ins & outs of rescue and got to visit with two rescues that have been close to my heart. Lana & Becky from Therapony in California and Lori from Sunkissed Acres.
I am honored and humbled to be able to be a small part of the noble and important work these groups do. Please consider a donation…it is always greatly appreciated.
Here is a summary of the event from my friend Lori…who could have been a poet had she not gotten into horse rescue.
This past weekend, myself and 7 others from Horse Rescue United, had the opportunity to gather at the Rescue Horse Coalition in Nashville. It was well attended by rescues from all over the US. I had a chance to connect with some of the rescues I love. Deanna Kafka’s donkey rescue has always had a piece of my heart and more so now. She is so real and so passionate. A small group in California, Therapony, saving them one horse at a time with long term goals. We left with a lot of valuable information but even more so with the realization that we are all equal. We all face the same trials and tribulations. We all deal with the heartache and the successes. The struggles are shared clear across the board whether we have one or 150. Spending the weekend gathering information, sharing experiences and cheering each other on brings on a renewed energy. All the while watching Buddy and Henry both make it home added to the glory. It was a weekend I won’t forget for a while I can assure you. And sitting with the groups from Georgia who I work with on a daily basis, the best. We laughed, we cried, we planned, we committed. We are rescue.
