The Horses Still Need Help

0

The transformation with our three rescue horses are a very fantastic gift back to follow, but we cannot end our help only because they look great on the outside.

They still need our help with healthy nutritional food, their medicines, and dental work. Veterinarian visits, and sometimes x-rays.

We are running out of funds and truly need your help.

GummiBears Heart medicine cost 100 euro/month.

Blood tests to monitor how the medicines are working/helping

Vaccinations are 50 euro per horse/ six months (+-)

Farrier 60-80 euro per horse/8-12 weeks, since their hooves are still in bad shape.

Dentists are coming up this weekend, and that will be around 150 euro per horse.

We cannot give up on the horses because of the “costs” and our values. GummiBear, Rihanna, and Miracle have all worked so hard for us humans. For our pleasure and many times our ego. Isn’t it our job to give thanks back?

This summer we will start different new projects. Our horses play an important role in our “Horses Healing Children”,  and the Therapeutic Horse Program for Children with special needs. Keep an eye out for our announcement.

Also, we have several horses waiting to come to our Sanctuary. It’s amazing people all around Europe have heard about our fantastic transformation with the rescue horses.

They are getting all the treatments they need. We listen to the horse’s desires, and “special” compose their programs for the days. Not all rescue horses want to walk in a pasture all days.

In my experience, many of the horses have gone into their own “mind” to survive their daily work. Some are racehorses, polo horses, riding school horses, private horses, every horse that hasn’t been treated with respect can get a mental breakdown. When they come to us we let them rest and work only by observing them.

Healing and Animal Communication.

It only takes a few days until the horses open up. Trust has been built between us.

When the horse gets an ok from the veterinarian healthwise, we create what the horses want and need.

GummiBear 25 years-old, would like to eat the whole day 🙂 and he loves his walks and play ‘follow John” in the riding arena, be out in the green big pastures. Like an old man appreciating his retirement. He loves Rihanna, our other rescue power girl. He loves company. He doesn’t want to be “alone” among working horses anymore. So we let him have that (not overeating of course).

Miracle 28 years old (soon) loves to be part of the horse community, walking around together with me greeting them all, eating a lot of carrots, and be part of everything we do. Sometimes riding a little, but only slow pleasure riding looking at all the trees.  So we let him have that.

Rihanna, 20 years-old, our power Princess Warrior girl. What a fighter, and clear in what she wants (and not). Former successful jumper, then the success went dark. Tried as a Riding school horse, but to fast. Left in a box. The Lady at the place called and asked me to take her.

Rihanna is having an amazing mind of her own, and she clearly has shown us she doesn’t want to be on vacation. Rihanna loves to be ridden (carefully) at the jumping arena, to be among the other jumpers, to smell the atmosphere.

Now, can she still jump? Only “bunny” jumps, and we are not out after a jumping horse either. However, what makes her happy will make her into a content (happy) horse.

Surely, we make her be in the atmosphere of her past good memories, and we, we let her remember.

We let them all remember, what it ones felt to be appreciated.

That’s Amore!

Miracle January 2018

This Napoletano boy is fantastic strong and stubborn with a big loving heart. I am so proud of him, a true Miracle. Like I mentioned earlier, he is 26-year-old former riding school horse that we “adopted” to give him retirement.

In the last posting, you can read about his abscess that was really bad and painful. Thanks to great veterinarian team, great horse care and YOU all that helped with donations, we can today tell you that he has healed wonderfully.

Yesterday when we took off the bandage, he walked like a 4-year-old stallion.

Miracle is a true Miracle. So proud of his fighting spirit.

That’s Amore!

 

Update on Olivia’s​ GoFundMe Horses

❤️ Hi Everyone,
First and foremost, I want to thank you that has donated and shared this campaign.
The reason for me starting to rescue horses are many. I love horses, they are not only beautiful but also intelligent as many of you already know.
But what many doesn’t know is that after a terrible horse accident when I was 9 years old, made me depressed and terrified for life. I didn’t want to live!
After surgeries, my mom tried so hard to help me. — she joked with me asking if I couldn’t start playing golf. But I wanted to be among horses—
One day she found Hirschof Riding school and there was a horse named Sunshine.
He listen to me when I told him about my day. I could cry without him rolling his eyes. Together with him, I was in the moment, he brought me back to life.
Miracle is the handsome 26 y old horse that I rescued from Italy. He is amazing and can see when you are sad or happy. He sees your shattered heart.

Children Oregon
I want so badly to save Gummi Bear and Rihanna and create, not only a senior retirement place. But for other children with broken hearts that can come out and receive healing from these horses.
I want to give back! Please help me help other children to feel seen and not judged, to feel“I am SomeOne” To meet the best healers.
I won’t do this by myself. A beautiful child therapist will be part of my team and many other educated people.
Your gift will be given back to both Animals and Children!
From my ❤️
Yours Olivia

The Girl’s Past Helped her Become an Animal Lawyer

Outside my door stood a very thin girl in her too big t-shirt. By her side sat a messy dog.

The girl could not be more than seven years old that first day. When the social workers came to pick her up, she refused to accompany the assistant without her dog. One of the social workers was a big animal lover who had heard me tell how important animals can be for the humans healing.

The girl was interrogated while her dog, Duncan, laid next by her chair. She stretched and gently petted him over his coat. “He is my best friend. When my mother and stepfather argued, me and Duncan always crawled under the bed together. ”

Later I met them both, but the main character for me was Duncan.

He was calm and did not leave her side.

Bottles thrown, furniture being thrown around, punches, loud voices, followed by a spooky silence. Several times Duncan went to protect the girl. The dog even bit the man, but out of protection.

The social worker later confirmed that the girl’s stepfather had tried to get rid of the dog.

Children who come from a violent family can usually heal faster with animal therapy. The healing ability from the animals affects us humans strongly.

Over the years the girl and I have been in touch with each other and especially after the difficult time when Duncan died. Duncan fought against death to continue to protect, though his master was safe and away in school. He did not want to leave her.

We were many who were afraid of what the grief and sorrow would do to her.

But life often surprises us, I thought. You are many times fooled by your own assumptions, in advance of concrete actions of others.

Of course, she mourned. But after a while she started studying to become an animal lawyer. Her dream was to fight for animals that were not allowed to accompany the children in their new foster home. She spoke of her vision as “Duncan’s Law Firm”

She ends in the letter to me:

The way back is a lifelong path but definitely not impossible. It is a healing process on a long journey. We often wonder when we will come to the healing destination. But the wounds are also a way to learn to live, and together with Duncan I became stronger than ever.20170817mia1020
