New home update for the horses....

Today we went to the facility where the two mares will be going... and to say the least, I am very pleased!

It is a very well run barn, that teaches natural horsemanship to individuals from young to old. The horses are not pushed into the program, and go through a holistic heath check to make sure they are in perfect health before they start their schooling. They use bit-less bridles, and treeless saddles in the program.

The facility is extremely clean, and the people are wonderful. The mares will share a paddock to start with adjacent stalls, and they all have outdoor time every day, and lots of people time with them as well.

I honestly cannot believe this solution fell into our lap, through some networking of family members. The facilitator told me she has turned away 100 horses which I believe is true. 

This is a dream home for a horse. No abuse, kind loving caring people running the program. The people who work with and handle the horses understand the horse, and if there is something going on causing the horse to be irritated or act out, they realize something is causing this and it is addressed.

The best part is that the person who is the barn/program facilitator and oversees the program is a strong Christian, whose desire and commitment is to apply the principles of scripture to both man and animal in her program, and it is working very well.

Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 

Now, how could this be anything but good for both the horses and the people working with them? 

We think the move should only be weeks away... my gosh, the horses will finally have a job!


  1. I hate to be the cloud, but I'd rather say something as I've had so many bad experiences with trusting people I shouldn't where my horses are concerned, but is there a contract regarding what happens to the horses when they can no longer use them in their program?

  2. It sounds like a good solution and if you've got recommendations from other people, that should help you feel more confident that what you are seeing is "real". Having gone from two horses to two, I know what a relief it can be to get things done to something you can manage. Good luck!

  3. I will have a contract going in to protect all concerned, and am able to prevent them from going elsewhere should they not workout. I would not consider blindly sending them away! The added benifit is my vet gave them approval and my farrier is now their farrier as well....which is wonderful!

  4. Once again I have missed a couple posts! This sounds like a wonderful place, I hope it all works out. The horses will love it!

  5. So happy to hear you have found such a great place for them. Also, I like your new blog look...


Thank you for your comments...I mean really...Thank you for taking the time to do that.. how nice of you!
