May Bucket Fund receipts! Last Chance Corral, Wild Horse Connection and All Seated in a Barn!






Welcome to my own little tornado lands here in Paso Robles… I’ve been a busybee, as you know, but it has also been very, very windy.  So odd.  I don’t remember it ever being this windy for this long – every afternoon/night.

First though, here are the flowers I received from Hubby for my birthday.  He sent ice cream and strawberries, too.  (He was out of town on work.). When he came home, we immediately had to race to the airport for a nice 3 days in Oregon – where it rained the entire time, such a relief for us thirsty Californians – for our nephew’s wedding.. and now we are home again.

BUCKET FUND RECEIPT – Last Chance Corral and Wild Horse Connection

In May, we had two Funds going.  The Bucket Fund for the Last Chance Corral and The Keep Them off the Truck Fund for whomever is left in the Killpen that we can save (reasonably).

Our receipt to Last Chance Corral.

And then a few more donations came in, so I spread the wealth and sent $50 to help this little guy!

Poor Braveheart…

For Braveheart

MAY 2022 – KEEP THEM OFF THE TRUCK FUND!

You all were very generous with this Fund in May! We were able to save a mare and a young colt.  I told you about the colt, “CC”.  Here is his story.

Poor baby CC, in the Killpen in Texas. He was so depressed.

And we saved a mare now called, “Pacifica”.  I haven’t written her story but here is a photo of her in the Killpen in Texas.

Pacifica was saved in the last hour… ASIAB sent this pic and I said YES! Her story is coming.

This is the receipt for both Pacifica and CC.

THANK YOU ALL!  MAY WAS AN OUTSTANDING MONTH.  THANK YOU.

For the love of a pony… Gwen has a new boyfriend.






Well… out of the best plans sometimes comes an unexpected reality.

As most of you know, I adopted one-eyed terror Shetland pony, Rocky Balboa, for Norma Jean.  Norma Jean is my 29 year-old donkey who has lost both of her long-time pony paddockmates in the past few years.  She had lived with them for 27 years… and she was lonely for them.  Norma didn’t seem to like other donkeys, so I thought I would get her another pony.  When Rocky came along, I assumed that this would be a perfect matchup.  Norma needed a pony and Rocky needed a home.

Unfortunately, Rocky wasn’t down with it.

Although Norma spent a lot of time trying to ingratiate herself to this elusive Shetland, Rocky just wasn’t having it.  Yes, he’d eat with her… but that was about it.  Most of the time, he would stand closest to the Big Girl paddock and moon at them.

Finally, Norma got the hint and started to hang out more with the other donkeys (Ethel Merdonk and Princess Buttercup Pebbles) because Rocky spent all of his time rubbing against the fence line closest to the Big Girls.

Although it was against my better judgement, I let Rocky into the Big Girl paddock and held my breath.  I was afraid he’d get kicked – badly.  But, as it turns out, he’s a plucky little badboy and I was more worried about Gwen than Rocky!  (BG wanted NOTHING to do with him – and he astutely stays away from her.)

After a few days of jostling and high squeals from both of them, Gwen and Rocky have come to a separate peace.  Gwen allows him to be her guardian and he moons all over her.  It is very cute.

Gwen, as an older girl, has a younger, smaller, toughy boyfriend.  Well… she probably doesn’t think of him as her boyfriend, but Rocky does.
