Its That Time Of Year Again

Mare At Rainier Seizure
Mare At Rainier Seizure

Intake season, as we have named it can be depressing and overwhelming. The questions of "how can people do this?", "how are we going to find enough adoptive homes? ", "how will we be able to responsibly take more horses on?", "do we have enough fosters and haulers for this seizure?", "will equine neglect ever slow down?" etc. etc.  It is a lot to take in, especially for an all-volunteer group with jobs and families. 

We used to say Thanksgiving was the start of intake season but this year we have already taken in Mocha, Shasta & in addition to the 21 horses from a seizure in Rainer, Oregon that Oregon Humane Society investigated. The number of horses under our care quickly went from 37 to 60.  That’s a lot of hay over the winter!

These thoughts where all going through my head as we caught and loaded those 21 horses a few weeks ago. Then I stopped and looked around at the horses in their current living conditions, looked at the bones I should not be able to see and looked into their kind yet scared eyes. We are making a drastic difference in these animals lives.  They are going to be warm, feed regularly and soon healthy. They will learn to trust people and then they will be some of the most loving and appreciative horses around. What we do is important and so is taking the time to stop and love on one of those horses whose world we helped changed for the better.  

We can never say thank you enough to our supporters and wish you a wonderful holiday season!
