Cookie’s Cancer, an Adoption, & Updates on Many

April 10th, 2014 Dr. Porter examined Cookie’s eye – the cancer has progressed. We will be taking her to UF – it’s highly possible that she will lose her left eye. Sisco’s front right was x-rayed – he’s been on and off lame. He walked pretty good for Dr. Porter yesterday but we did x-rays…

BH April 5th – April 7th Update

On Saturday, I bent over to put two feed tubs on the ground. As I was standing back up, one of the horses quickly turned her head and pinned her ears at another horse walking towards her. We bumped heads pretty hard. My nose is broken and my right cheek and right side of my…

BHFER March 31st – April 2nd Update

March 31st We never know when we respond to a call what may be in store for us. On the way to a doctor appointment this morning, I listened to a voice mail from an elderly woman that was crying and in obvious distress. Her message was that her mare’s companion goat had passed and…

BH March 25th Update

Silly Peaches! She doesn’t even like the apple flavored dewormer. Aren’t they just beautiful? They are all doing better by the day. They are happy horses – that makes me very happy. Serenity, Eliza, Bryce, and Mahogany. Bryce and Serenity are doing great – they have put on some much needed weight and are happy…

BH March 22nd – 25th, 2014 Update

March 22nd I’m back! Hubby hijacked me on Wednesday, March 19th, for a free 2 night stay that he won at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Kissimmee! The weather was perfect – we had a great time – it was the first "vacation" we’ve taken in over 10 years! The rescue was covered by some…

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…
