Hi everyone, This story comes from Lisa & Zans Fancy Superstar. Just goes to show things happen for a reason.
I do have an interesting story about how my barn cat B.B. came to be here. It was a year ago in April. I live in the country but work in the city. I work the afternoon shift 2:45 to 10:45. So, on the this day last April I was hurrying to pack a lunch before having to go to work. I reached into the box at the bottom of the pantry and grabbed one of those small cans of fruit cocktail. I quickly tossed it into my lunch bucket and went out the door. So, there I am at work...in a machine shop. Around 5 o'clock I thought I'd have a snack and eat my fruit cocktail....turns out the fruit cocktail was a can of cat food. I have four cats who live in the house. So much for my 5 o'clock snack. Then as I'm laughin' with a friend about my mistake another friend comes up and tells me there's a little kitten out in the parking lot. Come on! I "accidentally" bring a can of cat food to work and there's a little yellow kitten, soakin' soppin' wet out in the parkin' lot? So, out I go with the can of cat food. Now the little kitten was not friendly and would not come up to me and ran under one of the bushes close to the building. I took the can of cat food opened it up and dumped it under the bush and the little fella' sang a BIG LONG meoooooooooooow. Hence the name B.B. As in B.B. sings the blues. He was eating the food when I went back in to the buildin'. So, after that I was hooked but had no way to get him home. I couldn't catch him. Soon the news of my little pal was all through the shop and another friend comes over to me and says he will bring in a live catch trap...I don't tell him I have one at home.....and I say that would be great. Then the next day I deliberately bring a can cat food and put it in the live trap. It's raining again or still, I should say...little B.B. was in the trap not 5 minutes after I put the food into it. I brought him in the building, out of the rain and put him in a quite stairwell until it was time to go home. It took three days for B.B. to decide there wasn't anything to be scared of. He was so funny at first. He would hiss at me as I was petting him and his little back came up to meet my hand at the same time. He was so confused! Now he is a healthy, happy, neutered tom cat who doesn't allow any rodents in the barn or in the immediate area for that matter. He is my sweet little Beebers and is Fancy's friend too. She puts her head down and he rubs his body on her face. Every time I pet him or even think of him it reminds me that things happen for reasons. And that sometimes what you think is a mistake is anything but. Thanks Lisa for sharing your story:) Joey, Ginger, & Angel Betsy

Hello everyone...One last blog about Hero. He is not my horse, he lives at Crystal Peak youth ranch in
Bend Oregon. I found his story while looking for therapy horses for blogs. I thought it was an important story to share with all of you. Please google Crystal Peaks and see all the horses.
In an effort to help Hero a small group of children from Paisley middle school endured a self proclaimed walk-a-thon and raised $1200 to help buy bandages for his leg. A 5 yr old boy opted to forgo his birthday right to presents and chose to give his b-day money to Hero. Held withing a brown paper bag his gift of $15.00 and several bandages. A stir of publicity around this kind little horse. Hundreds have contacted us with their own story of renewed hope inspired by Hero. One envelope came to the ranch containing nothing but a post-it note. No name or identification, it merely said "I was thinking of ending it all, until I read about Hero. I have decided to change my mind...Thank you. The message of Hero's life is straight forward, "If I can make it, YOU can make it.By his example, he inspires me along with all others to do the same:)
I got these stories from one of the owners of the ranch.I think the story of Hero is a wonderful display of Human and Equine compassion. Tune in tomorrow for some stories from HC members. Joey, Ginger, & Angel Betsy

There is a pic of hero on the bottom of Ginger's page :) Hero comes home...We have discovered Hero's rescue was not the "happy ending" of his story, but instead, it has become the very beginning. Now we know that avalanches are not restricted to falling snow! Since the release of the "Hero story" we have been buried under a wave of pure compassion. Our little hero has since come home to a real hero's welcome. His story of undying hope reached across the Northwest and beyond. While pulling up the ranch driveway with my sweet boy in tow, I could hardly believe the sight that greeted us. Tears streemed down my cheeks as I drove through a cheering hallway of waving arms all reaching out to welcome us. Over 300 people had gathered from all over the Northwest and Canada to hail this, once abandoned horse to his new family. A large contingent of media was also present to cover this inspiring story...Hero was finally home. While slowly maneuvering throught the applauding crowd, I was so deeply moved by every bright and cheering face. Amongst the crush, Hero backed out of the trailer and turned around to survey the the scene with his one remaining eye. He was not afraid, he was not nervous. His only expression was one of pure awe. I wondered if he might be contemplating if this is what it feels like to finally enter heaven. Surrounded by your beloved, many clothed in tears of joy at your long awaited arrival, cheering, clapping and embracing....because you've finally come home. Tune in tomorrow for more after Hero is home:) Have a great weekend, Joey, Ginger, & Angel Betsy

Happy Monday! I thought I would change things up a bit today, and talk about PHH (People Heplping horses) 13 retired horses in desperate need of help. A plea made in their behalf. PHH heeds the call, stepping in to form a sanctuary in California for these 13 animals in need, and in the future even more deserving horses. PHH is a locally based, nationally recognized organization dedicated to improving the horse to human relationship through therapeutic riding, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoptive services. As the equine community leaders, people helping horses brings caring people together to focus on the most important equestrian needs in the local area and mobilize resources beyond the dollars that are pledged through fundraising. We do this by building partnerships, gaining consensus, and leveraging resources to make a difference. Local partners include schools, government policy makers, businesses, humane societies, rescue and rehabilitation groups, 4-H, and FFA. Our life changing programs include Leg up for kids therapeutic ridig, our recently created sanctuary for retired horses, and our trailblazing rescue and rehabilitation work. From horses to people, and back again, we heal the heart, mind, body, and soul. To learn more go to peoplehelpinghorses.org Have a great day...Joey, Ginger, & Angel Betsy

Happy Sunday everyone...I thought I would add a few things my Daughter left out about Oreo the helping mule. Brandy had cancer and had to have surgery. I think that was the worst day of her life when we found out. I noticed over the next few months that she would go out to the pasture and sit with Oreo when things got bad. What makes Oreo a helping mule in my eyes is that he raised Dancer from a 3 month old filly and he lived long enough to see Brandy be cancer free. He died with his head in her lap. I'm not sure how things would have turned out if Oreo wasn't there to take care of Brandy. Hope you all had a great weekend...Joey, Ginger, & Angel Betsy

Today’s blog is a personal experience with helping horses. I was a volunteer side walker for therapy horses. We had a Mom with triplets, 2 boys and 1 girl, 3 yrs old. The little girl had no problems; however the boys had cerebral palsy. Each week she would bring the kids and we would put the boys on the horses. We used a stuffed animal to cover the handle on the bareback pad since neither of them could sit up on their own. The boys would rest their head on the animal and try to lift their head if even for a few seconds. One day we were waking the horses with the boys on board and Alex lifted his head. He made it all the way around the arena!! I looked at his Mom to see her in tears. She was so excited that he made it around with his head up. We had another girl 12 yrs old. She had been injured in an accident. She was left in a wheelchair and unable to speak clearly. I was so amazed that when we had her on the horse she would sing in rhythm to the horse’s movement. Our other little boy was autistic. He always came to therapy wearing his superman cape. He was especially nerve racking for me since he would bail off the horse at any given minute. I caught him more than once. It was cool to see him calm down after riding for a few minutes. Therapy horses are wonderful. If you ever have the chance to volunteer I suggest it. Every day I left the arena feeling like I was part of amazing. Have a great day! Joey, Ginger, & Angel Betsy

Hey! heres a vote for you today! I hope you had agood 4th. I'll stop by and vote for your two fillies too!

I rode Romeo yesterday evening. We worked on our lead changes. He can do a flying lead change to the right, but when going to the left it takes a little bit more work. I have a 4-H meeting again tonight and only one more after that before the state show!
