PREPARING FOR HURRICANE IRMA

Preparing for the storm

We spent Wednesday beginning our preparations for Hurricane Irma. Many windows were boarded up, but we still have much to do.
On Thursday morning, a number of our horses left for Tennessee.

 

Last minute kisses.

 

 


Seeing the horses off was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do but there’s comfort in knowing that they will be okay.
It is Thursday evening and I just finished tucking in Betsy Rose for the night. She’s slurping away at her soupy mash which makes me smile. This precious girl always reminds me to believe. Against all odds – she survived.

 

We’re keeping a watchful eye on Little E – when there’s a change in barometric pressure, he tends to get a tummy ache. But what a blessing it is to have all of the horses, including the ones that went out-of-state today and have thankfully, safely arrived, are tucked in for the night.
Magic and the others that are still here are collared and tagged. We used markers to paint our information on their sides. We’re still boarding windows and preparing the barn which is where we will remain during the storm.

 

We are so truly grateful for all of your support – for your prayers, well wishes and most generous contributions. And to those of you in Irma’s path – stay safe and keep the faith. You’re all in my thoughts and prayers, as are your loved ones from near and far who will worry about you. We’re going to get through this. Believe…
