Our rescue horses

Last year we adopted two rescue horses and I thought I'd share photos of them with you :o) 

This is Savanna when we first got her....

Savanna had been starved and neglected.  The rescue had her for a while, but she was still underweight when she came to live with us.  She was on a special diet for many months so she could gain weight.  This is a photo of her from this summer...

This is Logan when we first got him...

He was given to the rescue as a result of a divorce and was extremely easy to spook when he first came here.  He has gotten over a lot of his nervousness since he has been here.  Here's a photo of him from this summer....

They are both such sweethearts and so beautiful to me.  It was a dream of mine to own my own horses all my life and last year it finally came true.  Unfortunately, just as this summer was starting, I ended up with a head and neck injury which made it so I couldn't ride for a while.  I''m hoping that I'll be able to get back to that next year :o)


  1. What a difference in these two. They are both looking so beautiful. Thank goodness for the good people out there like your family that step up and help animals in need.

  2. The horses look wonderful now! How much I envy you, it was a childhood dream of my to have horses, but I think it will stay a dream only. But I always love to see horses and admire these special animals so much!

  3. Thank you for your comments! Yes, these horses are so special. Even though I can't ride right now, I still enjoy going out to spend time with them. It's funny... even the smell of a horse is therapeutic to me :o)
