A little background on Dawn - she is a hero in the horse world. She has opened her heart and her home and is living her life helping these beautiful animals. Often when she gets them they are not at their best. Perhaps sick or in need a good horse spa treatment (I wonder if she does humans)...
She is so in-tuned with her horses that within days she can tell you the character of the horse and foresee problems (yes Jim Carey personality can be found living in a horses - just read her past post of some of her hams). I can't tell you how many horses she has because there are always some coming and going.
Here is a sample of her blog article that was written and can be found at this LINK
I have a soft spot for every horse and feel that they all deserve quality of life.
For me, horses who are created by humans should be guaranteed a good life. But that isn’t what happens with Nurse Mare Foals. The plan for them is … well, there is no plan. These babies are ripped from their mothers at a very young age and just destroyed.
That’s it. Get rid of them. So TRAGIC and totally unfair.
Aw C’mon. Is that the best we can do? Really? Isn’t there a better idea out there?
Grrr. I have a real soft spot for innocent babies who are brought into this world just to be left out of it.
Today, we are going to help and support orphaned foals from the Nurse Mare Industry.
Now to the point of our partake in this.... I am asking all of my crafty friends to group together and put our heads together and figure out a way to help and show Dawn and give her our support. It seems that I have more quilting friends and thought (and just an idea) that maybe we could get several different quilters to do one block and send to whoever (my husband quilts) to have put together and auction it off and donate the proceeds to Dawn BUCKET FUND.
Or we could do one huge basket and collect a handmade item made from all of my wonderful crafty friends and sell tickets (just an idea) to auction this off (ticket drawing)
I'm asking for help and getting the best of the best to help me put this together.
