AMAZING ANIMAL LOVERS BLOG

The news you were waiting for...

This is my Mom's farm that I visit on a daily basis and about 2-3 months ago a women dropped off three horses to be boarded but my Mother only had room for two. This border new this and left one of the horses behind the barn anyways and we did find room for her. She paid her board for one month and one night (so the story goes), she came and picked up two of the horses and left one behind...
The horse is an Arabian and her name is Misty, but I prefer we use her nick name, Lucky!
Here she is...Cute isn't she! She is about 18-20 years old and has a few ailments, but nothing too bad according the vet. The horse vet lives next door. She has two melanoma's which is common in grey horses. I call her white though, but she can live with these for 10-15 more years. She does have a big growth on her shoulder, but again, it doesn't cause any harm or pain and you can still ride her.
SO it was me or the auction blog. She is a nice girl and very friendly. I have help at the barn to take care of her and the price was right, free! Lucky (Misty) was abandon and we have the letter to prove it. The person had their 15 year old daughter write a letter saying that Misty was no longer theirs. This is quite common now a days because it is hard to pay board and to feed. I am lucky because I don't have to pay the board and my mother is glad because she doesn't have to send her away to the auction block because the next stop is....I won't even say it!
Well, she will have a good life now because I adopted her. I am now her adoptive Mom and I have plenty of kids who will ride her from the barn (not mine) and I will do the grooming. I have not rode in years but I love being in the barn and around the horses. It is very peaceful around the horses. I can also keep a closer eye on my Mom and all the doings at the farm. I have to say I am very busy and I know that, but my daughter's fiance works their also and he will help for now!
That's the news! I guess you can take the girl away from the farm but you can't keep the farm away of the girl!

Ride on my friends!

What a lucky horse. You know I have a soft spot for horses, so I am extra glad to see that this ol' girl got a nice home.

She's very lucky to have you! I can't understand people just abandoning their companions, but no one who posts here can.

I grew up with ponies and horses, they were my first love and when I was younger I just assumed I'd spend my life working with them. Didn't quite turn out that way, but horses hold a very special place in my heart, all these decades later.

Give her a treat (carrot, apple, whatever) from me, and a good pat!

We sometimes forget how difficult life gets for the older horse when the owners don't want them any more. You are wonderful to care for Lucky - a beautiful horse. We hope you all have many good years together.

Well, Lucky has turned out to be very lucky, hasn't she? How close does your mom live, and is her farm a working farm? Does she board horses for a living? Are you keeping Lucky at your mom's place or yours? I guess I'm your newest follower, but probably the most curious as well. I love getting to know people. How great that the vet lives next door, but wait, is that next door to you or to your mom? Anyway, it looks like Lucky will now have a great new life with you, and it seems that this is where she was meant to be!

Congratulations!!! She is one lucky girl to have found you. There is nothing better than the joy horses bring to life. Doesn't matter if you are riding. Just spending time with them is enough.
