A Feel Good Moment For All Horse Lovers

Rescued: Turbo and Diesel.

 

We wanted to share with you a beautiful photo, courtesy of Bee Sliver Farm an equine rescue facility in Chester, N.H. The photo says so much, I don’t feel the need to share anything more than it and the story from Bee Silver Farm:

A picture worth 1,000 words: This is seven months ago when we rescued this team of draft horses from slaughter. We were told they were a team for 15 years. We loaded them up onto our trailer and snapped this picture. It shows their first look at freedom from the kill pen and the joy of still being with each other.

Turbo and Diesel never leave each other’s side here at Bee Silver Farm, as we believe they give meaning to the words, “Until death do us part.” We will ensure they will live out their days here with us, together.  They will never have to fear separation. Once a team. Always a team.

Update: We just received notice that Bee Silver Farm has experienced some difficulties. Go to Bee Silver's Facebook page.

Get Rid of Puddles

By Cynthia Foley, March 15, 2014

I don't think there's a messier time of year than spring.  Melting snow and mud. Yuck.

We were hammered with snow a few days ago, and yesterday the temperatures were near 50 degrees.  Everything was wet, soggy and flooded.

When I put the horses in, I noticed that the doorways had three inches of standing water right in the door track. What a mess. Flooding snow, pooling right where the doors shut.

Spring is fun because days are warm and nights are sometimes very cold. Below freezing every night this week, which means that standing water will form an ice barrier all around the bottom of the door. Those doors will be frozen stuck! I had to do some water work and get the water to drain away from the doors.

I called my husband and said I'd be at the barn longer than I thought, explaining the situation. "That's no problem," he said. "Just put some snow in the water, then shovel it out."

"What? Add snow to the mess?" I thought he'd lost his mind. "Why would I do that?"

"The snow will soak up the water, then you can shovel it all out. It's already getting cold, so you won't have anymore melting till tomorrow afternoon."

So I grabbed a shovel, threw It worked like a charm and I was done in five minutes. I repeated the whole thing tonight, too. No frozen-stuck doors.
