Greetings from Figge Fulvio

0

Many ask whats the best part of rescuing animals?

I think the biggest joy is when we find a homeless dog his/her forever home, and receiving greetings and updates from the new family.

I can tell you, our smiles are big.

Suddenly, we have filled our minds and hearts with positive energy again.

Fulvio –now Figge was rescued in southern Italy. He really had some bad luck the first year, and his foster mom loved him dearly, but couldn’t keep him. Then, we found a wonderful family up in Sweden. Figge finally got his “own” family. He gets great love, exercise, and loves to window-shopping.

AWL was able to drive him the whole way up–

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!

Why This Hate?

Why the Hate?

Dear Friends and Followers,

I feel compelled to address some comments that have come to my attention regarding Olivia’s involvement in our horse rescue campaigns and her role with AWL and our horses. It makes me very sad that I even had to take the time to write this, but I want to go on record with our petition.

Anyone who knows me, and AWL, will know that I have always included my children, where appropriate, in our rescue missions. I believe very strongly in teaching compassion and helping my children to learn how wonderful and enriching relationships with animals can be for our lives. And I hope that one day they will help me to spread the word about animal rescue as they go out into the world.

Recently, my daughter Olivia has been playing an active role in our horse rescues. And she has been visible in our campaigns and fundraising efforts. She has her own horse and is on her way to becoming an accomplished rider. But I wanted her to understand the plight of horses who are not as fortunate as Sunshine. And to understand the complicated and very challenging process of rescuing those horses. And also, the care involved once they are rescued.

Somehow, somewhere along the line, some people have started to speculate that we are rescuing horse FOR Olivia. And the story is being changed into Olivia somehow having a very privileged position in this process. I don’t know the motivation. Jealousy? Bitterness? Ignorance? Whatever the case, it has resulted in Olivia being insulted, bullied, made to feel bad for doing something good that comes from her heart and her love of animals.

So going forward I am going to keep Olivia’s contributions to our horse rescue missions more private. She will, of course, help me to care for these wonderful animals who need a team to keep them well. But I will not shine a spotlight on her until I feel it will be safe and productive to do so.

The animal rescue community is full of wonderful people. And so many times we must waste energy defending our good works against those who spew hate. I continue to hope against all hope that I will not have to do this again.
