For some reason… FB took this post down… So I’m posting again. THE STORY OF BLUE, A ROPE HORSE helps equines in need






I posted this story about Michael Johnson offering his new book for the KEEP THEM OFF THE TRUCK FUND.  But FB, without telling me why, took it down – which doesn’t help the horses…  So, I’m posting again and we’ll see what happens.

HERE WE GO!

MIchael Johnson gifted us with his newest book, “The Story of Blue, A Rope Horse” to benefit the Keep Them off of the Truck Bucket Fund!  Isn’t that wonderful?!  I read an advanced copy and smiled the entire way though (the story is mostly told through the horse’s point of view, which I loved).

This is one of those books that you’re sad when it ends…

The book retails for $29.99, but if you purchase here, FREE SHIPPING!

I READ AN ADVANCED COPY!

I’ve read all of Michael’s books and listened to his entire audio library… THE BEST.  Any horse person, not just a roper, will find themselves nodding and smiling.  A total humanity boost.  I was given the opportunity to read an advance copy, and I couldn’t put it down. This is a lovely, lovely story told through the eyes and voices of Michael and his horse, Blue.  So  many times while reading this, I had to shut the page and reflect on what I had just heard… enlightening, humorous, uplifting and full of amusement through Blue.

I LOVE the voice of Blue.  He is a riot – we’ve all met a horse just like him!

This is not only a perfect Holiday gift for just about any horse person… but it benefits the horses in killpens being shipped direct to slaughter through our KEEP THEM OFF THE TRUCKS FUND!

THANK YOU ALL!

NEW BUTTON. DIFFERENT FUND. LET’S DO THIS!

FUND TOTAL AS OF TODAY:  $1020  (Thank you!)

I’m no genius. Just an average girl who has a passion to save horses in need. This is my idea going forward. If we have a constant fund going daily… we will have funds to give to those on the ground who are saving these horses in real time at the killing auctions.

Horse and Man Foundation, Inc has a new Fund button. KEEP THEM OFF THE TRUCK FUND. This fund will go on all day, all the time. It will always be here. If you want to save a horse from slaughter, you know we will do that here.

All donations are 100% tax deductible!

It’s not just humans who can pack on a few extra pounds – pets can gain weight if their diet isn’t looked after properly.

This adorable Bored Panda gallery of photos from around the world shows off some truly paw-some pet transformations after animals were put on diets by their owners.

There’s Buddy the dog who lost almost a third of his body weight, and Barsik the moggy who went from 41lbs To 27lbs.

One pooch was even facing euthanasia due to health conditions – but his owners managed to turn his life around by helping him shed the excess fat. 

Here, FEMAIL rounds up some of the most dramatic pet weight loss success photos:
