BH March 16th, 2014 Update

Romeo is looking better each day! He’s such a kind and gentle soul. Magnum and Kylie yesterday – he’s a very handsome horse! The winds are enough to blow you away today!! Getting tangles out of Magic’s mane – I’ve been using a donated product called "Mane-ly" and it’s great! Magic is a good boy….

BH March 15th, 2014 Update

I wish all year was like this. Not too hot, not too cool. Not muggy. Just plain beautiful. Well, the warm temps were back today after a few nights of cold weather. But the flies and gnats are back too. Kamanchee snoozing after breakfast. He’s such a sweet, sweet boy. He is looking for a…

BH: March 10th – 15th, 2014 Update

March 10th Another day over – I don’t know where time goes. Maybe, hopefully, tomorrow, I’ll be in the office for awhile to respond to PM’s, emails, etc. after the morning rush is over. And hopefully, tomorrow will be better than today. Some of you may remember Sammi and Joy? Well, Sammi was admitted to…

BH March 9, 2014 (Saturday) Update

Lots got done this weekend and the weather was perfect. Julie, Roxy and Paul helped out yesterday at the farm while the very successful Sun Country Trail Blazers Poker Ride took place. I still have more photos to share but I’ll have to do it tomorrow after I get back from appointments in Gainesville in…

Saturday pm March 8, 2014 Update

I’ve have lots to update and photos from today, but I just came into the house to grab a bowl of cereal. I’ll post more later but it was a GREAT day! The day started out with a call about Ladybug. She lives just down the road, so I went right over. All of her…

BH March 4-5, 2014 Update

Here’s an adoptee from BH, Nash. Ex-racer, grandsire is Dash for Cash. His new toy, a horse "kong." We’ve been very busy here and one of the things we’ve been working on is our FB presence. We will, over the next few days, convert daily ops over to the Beauty’s Haven Farm and Equine Rescue…

BH February 27, 2014 Update

This is what is called a "1/2 pasture bale" of hay. We’ve bought many and they have ranged from about 592 lbs up to 915 lbs. They are great – the horses can’t pig out on them. We do have to check for metal rings that hold them together a couple of times a day….

BH February 23 – 25, 2014 Update

February 23rd I’m about to go read comments about Solace – I’ve been putting it off. My heart is still very heavy from losing him – it just isn’t the same. I find myself still looking out into the paddock to see how he’s feeling – but he’s not there. I hoped to somewhat regroup…

BH February 18, 2014 Update

It was great to have Jean spend the day here helping out and visiting with the horses! And Sherry surprised us and came this afternoon – we’ve missed her! Ginny and her husband, Mark, and Karol were here today but we missed Marie. A lot got done and we are so appreciative of all of…

BH Feb 20th Update – Solace – Not good news

02/20/14 I was praying I would have good news about Solace but I don’t. He made a remarkable recovery from death’s door after arriving here in December 2012. He grew strong, put on 250+ lbs, and he was happy and doing well. A few months ago that changed – all sorts of tests were run,…

BH February 15 -16, 2014 Update

February 15th Bryce and Serenity Seeing contentment in their eyes is one of the greatest gifts ever. Solace had a so-so day today. The weather was a little cool, but nice. February 16th Although he is in better spirits, please keep the new gelding, Romeo, in your prayers – his blood work results came back….

BH February 17, 2014 Update

Romeo had a fairly good day today, although this morning, he had a little trouble getting up once. His body is depleted of everything – his liver and kidneys are struggling. But this is not unusual in cases such as this. Our rehab program moves slowly but steady. One of the most important first steps…

Betsy Rose’s Valentine Surprise!

Betsy Rose had a pretty big package delivered and it’s almost as big as she is! ”Betsy Rose come and look at a package that came for you!" "Wait – Mommy Theresa, look! It says there’s an air hole – does that mean there’s something alive in there?? Hurry – let’s open it up!" "Hello…

Our Valentine Save – He Really Needed Us

February 14th, 2014 I just want to let everyone know that we picked up up the gelding this afternoon and Dr. Julia Simonson vetted him. Dr. Julia said he’s deteriorated in just the last couple of days and wouldn’t have lasted another day. He has diarrhea and was very dehydrated – his poop is full…

Horse in Dire Need, Dr. Porter’s Visit, & More

February 13th, 2014 This is the gelding that I posted about a few days ago. We would like to pick him up tomorrow. He is very thin, (1.5 on the BCS), he has diarrhea and numerous bite marks that are trying to heal on his back side and a mane is full of burrs. We…

Our Beautiful Magic

I felt like I needed some “me” time on Wednesday morning so I literally snuck away after feeding and chores – I retreated to Magic’s paddock. He had horrible tangles in his mane which can come about overnight and I needed a happy project. I knew I’d be there for hours. LOL Voila! Not just…

BH February 10 – 12, 2014 Update

Monday, February 10th We are so proud of our horses! This mare has come so far in the care of her adoptive family – she recently won an event at the local speed show and it was the first time she had even been ridden outside of her paddock! When she was adopted, she didn’t…

BH Sunday, February 9, 2014 Update

The 3 Musketeers "helping" Barbara and Katherine today. They are a riot! I can’t wait until it’s warm enough to clip them – they are fuzz balls. Bronson got some extra attention today too. It was SO good to have sunny skies! Serenity and Bryce are still having a tough time with their digestive system…

BH January 30th – 31st, 2014 Update

Somehow I managed to not send this out – I’m sorry for the delay! Thursday, January 30th Trying to get Serenity’s temp up a bit. It’s down to 95.5. We just put a therapeutic mesh sheet under her blanket which has been proven to increase circulation. She’s also under heat lamps. The good news is…
