Horses as Therapists

0

Max_Julia

Our rescue horse Julia, is an one of our amazing therapists. Helping other children and adults to lower their anxiety, depressions, and their inner negative monologues. People feel a connection without any words by being present together with the horse(s).

School, or work stress gets off their shoulders, and smiles appears on their faces.

Sometimes you don`t want, or feel ready to talk to a person, or answer uncomfortable questions. Only to be in the moment and breathe, with someone that is there for you with their love. (Little like a grandma feeling)

That’s Amore!

Summer Greetings from our Rescue Horses

0

This summer has been truly hot here in southern Germany. I guess the three of our southern Italy horses felt like home with the similar heat from the Campanian Region.

Most important thing is that all four are enjoying life, I can assure you that. Every morning are they out on the fields, being walked in the forest, eating good nutrient food a couple of times a day. And not to forget their vitamins and medicines.

We could never do this without your support. And we surely need your help.

There are many more horses that are in need of help. They have worked hard for their owners, and are not useful anymore.

AWL is having a great “thank you” program where we want to give back, to the horse(s), as a thank you for what they have done for the humans; Success, education and maybe money and prestige.

We are also turning it around, Horses as our Teachers. In October are we going to have a workshop here in southern Germany, where the rescue horses are going to be our teachers. Do you dare to “hear” what they have to say?

That’s Amore!

 

Transformation Can be Magical

Gummibear_transformation_five_months

These two pictures above are amazing, without any words. Just look at them! I am “motherly” proud.

However, I want to explain and tell you the story behind the pictures, and my passion. The passion me and my daughter are having rescuing Horses (all Animals) are beyond anything in life.

Can you imagine it is five (5) months between picture one, and two?

Five months!!

GummiBear is now a 25 years-old horse and was born in Munchen, Germany. Later he was sold as a riding school horse to southern Italy. After years of hard work at that riding school was he sold again, and this time to the other side of southern Italy.

Another riding school.

He worked hard again. He did his job with silence for many days, many months and many years. Then one-day GummiBear lost his power.

There were no pastures, no green grass to have any relaxation. Only a box on the backside without any view.

I received a phone call, to come and get him. When I flew down and saw him I lost my breath. He was so thin and totally out of shape. I prayed hard.

No one actually believed he would go through the veterinarian inspection, not even the Italians. Then a miracle happened, he got his stamp to travel.

GummiBear and another rescue horse Rihanna, both came up to us in southern Germany.

Our veterinarian took a blood test. It came out positive for Cushing, low iron, and very low immune system. Listening to GB heart she heard a murmuring sound.

His hoves hadn’t seen a farrier in months.

We were not worried about the test results since he was under our care now. Different treatments could start.

Thanks to your support, we can provide GummiBear with veterinarian care, medicine, herbal, farrier, and in a good stable with nutrition food.

Please, even if he looks great, we need to maintain him looking like this. He still needs his medicine, herbs, osteopath, box, and food. Not to forget farrier.

We are so grateful for your donations, it makes a difference, and we can make that together with you. Please, let us continue helping GummiBear giving back as a thank you for everything he has done for us.

And, his circle is coming to an end. He has returned to Germany, only four hours away from where he was ones born.

That’s Amore!

This is PorkyPine, one of our new members in our Rescue Home in Germany.

 

Many exotic animals are getting sadly abandon, and it’s horrifying to see them laying in plastic buckets on top of each other.
The veterinarian is walking on his knees with abandon animals they are supposed to treat and not keeping them.

Sadly, the exotic animals don’t have any value (strangely)

PorkyPine came to us (with his male friend) last Friday. She is being treated for an infection and I give her shots daily for seven days.

Every day we get requests to rescue animals. Every day!!! However, we cannot keep it up without your help.

I literally am walking on my knees. It’s been a tough summer!

With your support, we can continue to rescue animals. Exotic Animals that never asked to be smuggled in, taken away their freedom.

Then to be mistreated and sick.

We are in desperate need of a BIG aquarium, a (letter) scale, big rocks, and money donations to be able to pay for medicines and veterinarian care.

Be part in PorkyPines and his friends’ rescue mission. Thank you!

Welcome Rescue Horse​ Julia

0

 

We couldn’t be happier than to welcome Julia, a former Polo horse. She is 16 years old born in England, later moved to Switzerland, and now, Southern Germany.

When we saw her first time she only stood there, like a polo horse. My heart told me, even if we couldn’t afford another rescue horse) to bring her for retirement. Eat healthily, be out in the pasture, have body treatments, ride out in the woods, and a lot of carrots and kisses.

She has been with us for three days and she comes when she sees us. Can it be all the carrots?

We love her.

Please help Julia and our other rescue horses to be able to stay and get everything they need. I believe that the rescue horses have worked so hard their whole life for us. Now, its time to give back.

Give thanks. Please donate now, 5 euro or more….every euro makes a difference.

That’s Amore!

When a Rat is Getting Sick

0

One morning our rescue rat Samantha started to walk in circles and tilting her head to the side. We rushed her to the veterinarian last Monday. The veterinarian told us that it could be a neurological problem.

Samantha got three shots;  for pain, vitamins and cortisone. We made a re-check appointment a couple of days later. However, if not better, come in right away.

Samantha became a little better but still, she fell when she tried to wash herself.

Friday came and we took Samantha with us to the appointment. We were nervous, still, she wasn’t herself. She hadn’t been eating, only drinking, –plus yogurt–. My favorite veterinarian Stephanie (Frau Spotl) greeted us when we walked into her clinic. She took Samantha and looked into her ears.

Bingo! Samantha got an ear infection!

Bacteria test was being made and sent away to the laboratory. Meanwhile, Samantha got antibiotic, pain medicine and protein food with her home.

It was amazing to see Samantha a couple of hours later, eating and feeling so much better. Her caretaker Olivia was most happy. We all had been scared to lose Samantha.

Why I like my veterinarian so much, some have asked me.

She listens, she teaches, she cares and she laughs. That’s for me is a Golden Keeper. Down in southern Italy, I had the same veterinarian, Dr. Damiani for four years before moving to Germany. His passion and teaching will I always carry with me.

That’s Amore!
