Hello everyone! Many of you have noticed our page has gone rather quiet over the last few weeks. I (Kara) have been dealing with a cardiac issue and have been feeling under the weather. Thankfully, I have a wonderful group of doctors helping me figure out whatโ€™s going on!

Iโ€™ll be back to posting regularly soon! โค๏ธโค๏ธ

Even though we are a horse sanctuary, we also have goats and chickens that call our farm home. Some of you local folks may see our flock scattered around outside when you drive by. However, these last few weeks have been a little too cold for our feathered friends. As soon as I open their coop, they take one solid look outside and high tail it back in. Canโ€™t say I blame them. Itโ€™s nice and toasty in here!

100 days until Spring... but whoโ€™s counting? ๐Ÿคช๏ฟผ

Brrrr...Our highest temperature today was 3ยฐ but felt like -15ยฐ with windchill! ๐Ÿฅถ Every time I stepped outside, I felt like I morphed into the human embodiment of a maraca. ๏ฟผ

The horses however seem totally unfazed and actually romped around for the majority of the morning. ๏ฟผBy the afternoon, everyone was either snacking or napping. What a dream life, am I right? Weโ€™re happy to see everyone is staying hydrated and warm. Even our old geezers arenโ€™t bothered by the cold. However they DID mind when I tried to snuggle closely for warmth. They shot me judgmental looks of both disgust and disappointment with my inability to stay toasty.

Time for a Jed update!

As most of you know, on October 13th in the wee hours of the night an Amish horse broke down in front of our sanctuary. We cared for him overnight until day break and returned him to the Amish. I was able to purchase him a week later as he refused to pull their buggy any longer. He since has gained almost 100# and his wounds are healing beautifully! He continues to thrive and has the BEST personality! Heโ€™s a real ham!

We were devastated to find one of our favorite barn cats without life this morning.

Stanley was exceptionally loving, docile, and smart. He would greet us with a chorus of mews every morning and would tag along with whatever we were up to. He even enjoyed the occasional spin in the tractor or taking a joyride on Arrickโ€™s shoulder. Our hearts are broken. To some he was โ€œjust a barn catโ€ but to us he was a part of our family.

Rest in Paradise, Stanley. We will see you on the other side.

...and so it begins.

This is our herds first snow storm in the Midwest and thankfully everybody is looking good. Everyone is nice and warm, vitals are great, gut sounds are nice and loud, and most importantly hydrated!

After living in the South for fifteen years Iโ€™m finding myself wearing a questionable amount of layers. I look like the Michelin man. But hey, Iโ€™m toasty.

Stay warm and safe out there!

Sanctuary life looks good on you, Jed.

Itโ€™s Featured Friend Friday!

Meet Chunk!

This little meatball of a pony stands at a mean 38โ€ tall with the attitude and confidence of a lion. Chunk came to us after his owner got out of horses and had a history of laminitis**. Because of this, Chunkโ€™s diet must be strictly monitored much to his disliking. This cute little...I mean BIG guy...spends his time visiting senior homes, libraries, and schools to spread love and education about equine welfare. We often refer to Chunk as the farm clown due to his silly antics. Heโ€™s been known to open numerous gates (and somehow unlatch locks!) just to walk up to our porch for a snack. While he is full of sass heโ€™s also full of unconditional love. Heโ€™s been there to comfort others in their lowest times and never asked for anything in return. Though...Iโ€™m sure he wouldnโ€™t mind a tasty treat! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I seriously canโ€™t say enough about this sweet guy. He will be featured at our Open House on June 6th!

Best friend(s) at the sanctuary ๐Ÿด: Lollypop, Devo, and Applesauce.

Favorite treats ๐Ÿญ: Mrs. Pastures cookies!

Favorite activity ๐ŸŽ: EATING!

Lyra has gained approximately 45lbs since her arrival to the sanctuary! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

While she is still caked in rain rot, we seem to have a good hold on it and her coat is slowly improving as time goes on. Her personality is shining through and weโ€™ve come to know her as a gentle, kind hearted, and affectionate creature. Lyra will do just about anything for some hugs and cuddles.

Weโ€™re proud to say Lyra will be one of our featured horses at our open house on June 6th 2020!

Itโ€™s Featured Friend Friday!

Meet Cheddar!

This sweet boy is one my personal favorites. Cheddarโ€™s life started out on the race track racking up well over $200k in his career. During his time on the track he suffered an injury to his front right leg, which is evident due to the pin fire** marks. Unfortunately, after his injury he wasnโ€™t performing well and was sold. From our understanding he had a very short eventing career but his owner had a difficult time keeping him sound. When he finally made his way to us, he had gone through several homes. He was malnourished and missing 60% of his front left foot. We couldnโ€™t confirm what caused the injury but our farrier speculated it could have been from getting his shoe with clips ripped off. Cheddar has gone through intense rehabilitation to help him remain comfortable and happy. Thus far, our efforts seem to be working well. Cheddar is one of our younger residents being only nine years old. He truly loves people and wants nothing but affection and attention. Heโ€™s usually one of the first horses to come up for grooming and the last to leave the gate area in hopes to sneak in a few more snuggles.

Best friend(s) at the sanctuary ๐Ÿด: Jolly, Frankie, Rex, and Major.

Favorite treats ๐Ÿญ: Mints, stud muffins, meadow mints, and carrots!

Favorite activity ๐ŸŽ: Being loved on.

** Pin firing, also known as thermocautery, is the treatment of an injury to a horse's leg, by burning, freezing, or dousing it with acid or caustic chemicals. The theory of this treatment is to induce a counter-irritation and speed and/or improve healing. This treatment is used more often on racehorses than on other performance horses.
