Last month our Bucket Fund recipient was Harley, the skinny draft horse who needed eye surgery.
You wonderful readers came through again to donate a bit over what he needed for surgery – which was wonderful as it helped with his aftercare. All the good thoughts, forwards and donations were such a lovely human gift to start the year. Yay!
Harley is doing very well and Dr. Ryan said the eye looks healthy and cancer-free! I will keep you updated.
*Theresa continues to try to get the buddy from the farmer. So far, no luck. But, I will let you know if she is successful.
UPDATE ON BODHI
Some of you have been asking for an update on Hubby’s draft cross, Bodhi, who we leased to family friends several months ago…
He’s doing great!
Initially, Bodhi was to be partnered with the tall and growing boyman of the family. Well, Bodhi is so well loved, he has been partnered with the entire clan!
Yup, the smallish girl rides him English, the larger boyman rides him Western and the Dad just rides him any way he wants.
I asked for pics today and Mom sent several (How fortunate that they happened to be gearing up for a lesson when my email came through to them!).
Unfortunately, the boyman was not available today so he is absent from the photos of this morning’s lesson.
Here you go! Fresh of the presses photos of BODHI!
Thank yous to ALL OF YOU for helping with our new February Bucket Fund “The Many” drive which started yesterday. Already (as I write this) we are over a quarter of the way there! Wahoo!! What a way to take a horrible situation and shine a loving light upon it.
Everyone handling and caring for the horses is very enthused by your support and overwhelmed with gratitude, as am I.
Atta Boys all around!
