Sorry I've Been Slacking

Hi Guys,
Wow I can't believe it's been almsot a month since my last post. The time really does fly. Updates:
Many of the horses have been placed in their forever homes :) , but there are still ones that would love for the right home to take them and love them. Don't delay in getting your placement application in.

Many of the mares with foals at side, or in foal have headed to their new homes. I know Hannah has started a blog for the progress of her lovely mare Naimah (formerly white 91) you can visit that at
It sounds like the Horse Showcase over the weekend was a sucess, I wish I could have attended, if anyone who was there would like to do a write up that would be awesome.

Just a reminder:
If you are applying for placement, placement forms must be mailed to the PO box listed on the Rescue 100 website, information sent in an e-mail will not be accepted.
Once you have been approved the placement committee will be in contact with you to arrange a time for you to come out and help select your Rescue 100 horse. Please try and avoid coming without pre-arrangements, Keno Hills is a private stable and if there is not a Rescue 100 volunteer or placement comittee member present, clients may not be able to assist you.

Desperate Horsewives this weekend, I unfortunately cannot attend due to my little brother graduating but I'll get Melissa and Caitlin to give me a detailed report of it, so I could post.
If anyone has stories of their favorite Rescue 100 horse, their new forever friend, or volunteers please feel free to share, you can e-mail them to me at

UPDATE: Fundraisers, Babies, and more...

So I know it's been awhile since the last post, spring is always a crazy time. Show season is upon us, and everyone is busy prepping.

The horses continue to improve, and volunteers continue to donate their time to this amazing cause.
Slipperfoot (grey mare with the horribly overgrown feet) has latched onto her bud Sugarfoot (Mini-dude), everytime I drive by the field they are inseperable. As many of you I'm sure have seen on Facebook, she can now run and play like a normal horse.

We have had three rescue foals born so far, the last one we spoke about has been named Polly. A special request by a gentleman who wished her to be named after his wife. The other two I'm sure have been given nicknames already. Two of the mares and their babies were recently moved out of the barn and up into the outdoor arena, giving us room for the other mares who are I'm sure close to popping.

The stallions that had been kept in the stalls have now been moved to their own pens outside, the grey one spent almost half a day playing in his pen, glad I'm sure to be able to once again feel the sunshine.

There was as many of you in the area I'm sure experienced, a "lovely" storm on Tuesday evening. As the wind was blowing my car I slowed, as I always do, to take a look at the herd. Something looked odd, then I realized our large shelter was tipped over and the roof was being torn apart by the wind. I'm sure Kelvin was thrilled the next morning.

Thank you once again to all the wonderful volunteers and donors. The horses appreciate it so much more than they could ever say.
