Can you do me a favor and ask everyone on your buddy list to look at my Phoenix Rising Site, and to forward the link to everybody on their buddy lists, and so on?
It's gotten just critical here........this is such an awful time for the horses. I'm trying to buy
hay for the ones already here at the rescue; AND save lives of (at least) a handful of yearlings
or babies at the 2 upcoming local auctions. My friend Jim went to an auction a week ago; and the
babies were selling for $10 to $100 each. He said SIX TRUCKLOADS went to the kill
I am really, really pushing it right now to try and save whatever I can!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've been praying; and I believe this is Heavenly Father's will for me at this time.
Anyway; if even a few people down the line are able to donate a little; it will all help
the horses TREMENDOUSLY. Please let everybody know that if they want a receipt for
their charitable donation to help defray their tax bill, just to let me know.
Here's the link:
Thank you, for helping me get this message out there......I know I can count on you
to post this plea and forward it. We send each other a lot of emails through the months;
but this is one that is most near and dear to my heart - for this is my heart's work.
Once I get past these 2 auctions (one on the 29th - which is also my 45th Birthday! and one on
Oct. 13th) I'll be able to slow down and concentrate more on the 'real' world. But I just have to
TRY to do whatever possible right now.......it's the cloth I'm cut from!
Love ya In All Circumstances!
(if this picture doesn't come through...its the same one as above)This is one of the reasons I do rescue.
This gorgeous girl is a ten year old Thoroughbred mare, retired from racing. Her name
was "Slings An Arrow", but we've been calling her "Phoenix" as the new figure head of the rescue. She's a 'best case scenario' - she was cared for properly until recently, when her elderly owner found he was dying from cancer, and so he donated her to the rescue so he knew she'd be safe from being sold for slaughter like so many TB's are.
She's sticking her tongue out for the photo...LOL...but she has an extremely sweet and
eager to please spirit. Samantha is about 5'5" tall...so you can see how HUGE she
is. Unfortunately, not all the rescues who come into Phoenix Rising look like this...but
we are making a difference, right here in our own little corner of the world!
