Gypsy Goes Home
November 21, 2009
Sometimes one person (and each of us as individuals) can make a big difference and I think it’s helpful when we share reminders of that at every opportunity. Here’s a story I’d like to share with the hopes that it inspires and motivates…
Photos from the morning fellow photographer and horse lover Barb Young came over the mountain to pick up a very lucky little Mustang mare.
Gypsy had been part of a local seizure (which I wrote about earlier). Being an older mare with no training or much trust for people, she had few options. (She’s 13 and comes from the Piceance Creek-East Douglas HMA right here in Colorado). Despite the fact that she’s a pretty, sweet mare, (my favorite of the 17 seized) no one came forward to adopt her. As a last ditch effort, I posted Gypsy’s information on my Facebook page and Barb responded almost immediately that she’d take her. The process was started with Animal Control and the photos below tell the rest of the story. Gypsy has a wonderful new home and life.
Barb and Gypsy arrived safely at Rainbow Farm later that day. Barb even sent me some photos to share.
And even a couple of photos from her first morning on the farm.
***Check out another way this seizure inspired a talented young lady to get involved:
Kudos also to the folks at Jefferson County Animal Control for working so hard to find good homes for all of the horses (and Sonar the donkey) involved in the seizure.
