Today is a very special day for one of our horses! Max A Million is one of 21 horses that were rescued in 2015 from Peaceable Farms. It's been almost 7 years since Gentle Giants and many other rescues throughout Maryland and Virginia were called to help take almost 100 horses that were suffering unimaginable neglect and cruelty.

Since that time, the horses who recovered and became available for adoption each found their forever homes and one by one left the rescue. All of them but Max. He's been patiently waiting for so long and today was finally his big day. I write this with happy tears streaming, so grateful this sweet boy, who once suffered so much, has finally taken the final step in his journey and at last found his home. He's touched so many lives since he's been here with us and we're going to miss him so very much.

Max's adopter is author Tonya Royston - looks like these two will never be short on tales to tell each other! Check it out:


Is your horse in the 30%?
PPID (Pituitary Pars Intermedia Dysfunction), formerly known as Cushing’s Disease, is the most common hormonal disorder affecting horses and ponies; however, warning signs often go unnoticed.

Should your horse develop PPID, would you know what to watch for?

Better understand PPID with these five FAQs.

What is PPID?
PPID causes the horse's pituitary gland at the base of the brain, which controls body functions through hormone levels, to work double-time, resulting in a variety of lifelong problems for affected horses.

How common is PPID?
PPID impacts up to 30 percent of horses and ponies more than 15 years old. While PPID occurs most frequently in senior horses, young horses are still at risk. Horses as young as 5 have been diagnosed with PPID.

Are there breeds at higher risk for developing PPID?
All breeds, including both horses and ponies, can be at potential risk for developing PPID.

Which warning signs should I watch for?
Often, signs of PPID go unnoticed. How can you tell if your horse may potentially have PPID? Watch out for the following:

Decreased athletic performance
Loss of muscle mass
Change in attitude or energy
Delayed shedding or no shedding at all
Excess fat on tail head or neck
Abnormal sweating
Experts recommend that horse owners perform frequent health checks to identify early signs of PPID. Catching PPID early on can have a profound impact on how the horse responds to treatment before other signs appear.

What are treatment options for PPID?
While unfortunately, there is no cure for PPID, horse owners can alleviate the impact PPID has on their horse’s well-being. Treatment with PRASCEND can reduce clinical signs of the disease and improve the quality of life for affected horses. PRASCEND is the first and only medicine available in the U.S. that is FDA-approved to treat PPID, providing a safe and effective treatment option. Command IR Ultra is an effective supplement used to support horses with PPID, aiding in reducing fat pockets, restoring body condition and addressing the metabolic condition.

Through management techniques - focusing on stress, health and comfort - horse owners can reduce the impact PPID has on their horse’s life. To reduce stress, implement a strict routine as well as avoid turnout with overly excitable, aggressive horses. To help ensure the horse’s overall health, continue to deworm regularly as needed, and vaccinate against emerging disease threats. Additionally, horses with PPID may have varying consistency of coat shedding, some shedding too frequently while others barely shed at all. Their comfort can be increased by clipping their coat in the summertime and providing heavy, water-resistant blankets for cold weather in the wintertime.

If you give your child a pony, they will want to ride. You’ll buy them the best pony you can find, followed by a helmet, boots and all other things pony.
You look for a local barn to ride at. And then life as you know it, will end.
Before you know it, they want to show so you find a circuit …..There will be no more lazy weekends watching tv. You will see more sunrises than you ever thought possible.
Every spare minute of your time will be spent hauling horse trailers and horses and enduring a crazy addiction to practice for the next show.
Your house may be a mess, and your car will be dirty. All because you gave your child a pony. Your weekends will be spent freezing or burning to death on a fold up chair. And their weekends will be spent gaining confidence and friends, learning new skills and having fun and getting dirty!!!!
You will be there the day he or she takes the first few steps of canter, the first taste of a jump, first ribbon, first championship. And they will make you SO proud. And right before your eyes, your little boy/girl will be transformed from the baby who bounced around on their rocking horse into an exceptional young horse enthusiast on the hunt for the next pony finals or maybe even the Olympics!
When you give your child a pony , you give them more than just something to ride. You give them a sport, a talent, hope and dreams. Friends, a new family, a place to learn about life, room to grow as a person where they can push their limits, and bravery, and courage, and memories.
Then one day, many years from today…they will be in their room and a certain trophy will catch their eye. And they will pick it up and realize instantly that when you gave your child a pony, you also gave them a childhood that they would never forget, at this point, you realize that everything you gave up along the way and sacrificed was totally worth it…..
All because you gave your child a pony.

OMG! How cute is this baby opossum? Do you know what to do if you find a young opossum? If they are 7" or less in length from head to rump, they are too young to be on their own. Call a wildlife rehab center or the Department of Natural Resources to care for them until they can be released into the wild.

April 7th, around 8:30 PM, Earth will get to witness the biggest moon of this year, often called as a pink super moon. In case you didn’t know, a super moon occurs when in the elliptical orbit, the Moon is the closest to the Earth -- making it look larger than ever.


Almost 1 week since I have been under cover in their pack and they still haven't noticed anything.
