Where do I even begin with this story? Toby, our rescue's namesake, and love of my life, was a show horse. Before he was rescued he was a stallion and sired one baby. She was a girl named Little Bit. Fast forward 8 years. I get a call from a friend named Lyn. She was contacted about several TWHs that needed to be rehomed. They have been well cared for and loved but owners had moved and had been boarding. She felt it was time to place them. Well, Lyn connected the dots, discovered one was Toby's baby, and called me. She is all that is left in this world, aside from memories, of Toby. I said Yes, yes, and YES! speaking with the owner she asked if I would take Little bit's mom. She is 24 years old and has never been separated from Little Bit...YES! Then, she asked about Rowdy. Rowdy is an 8 year old TWH. He is a hunk of a handsome guy. How could I say no? So, he will be looking for a home. They arrived yesterday, are settling in. Miss Kitty will join our sanctuary group at the rescue. Little Bit will be our personal horse(not a part of the rescue), and Rowdy is available for adoption.
Tortuga joined the established league of geldings yesterday. The castration was a little less than routine and our veterinarian had to return and place some sutures in today. He is non the worse for wear and will be able to return to the pasture tomorrow. Darby has been fostering at Terin's house while her two babies were here for training. She returned last weekend and hasn't missed a beat in training. Be sure to check out her profile. She is available for adoption and I can't believe she hasn't been snatched up! Sadly, Cali was returned by her adopter through no fault of her own. We offered to let Cali stay for a little while to see if her adopter could get back on her feet. Unfortunately, it is not a possibility and Cali will be looking for her new family. She is such a sweetheart and I hope she is able to find her forever home.
