October 2012, on the HorseChannel homepage, I read about a trail ride to honor Veterans. I thought it would be great reason and opportunity for a HorseChannel member's trail ride.

I believe we honored our Veterans in style. We have decorated our horses, we have decorated ourselves, we took pictures with our favorite veterans, friends, family, and our beloved equines. See it here on the first HorseChannel Veterans Day ride page.

If you are a veteran, let us honor you with your shared photo.

Leave a blog letting me know you have a Veteran's Day photo and I will save it from your page and post it below.

I have dreamed of a trail ride with my HorseChannel friends. You made my dream come true. Maybe you have the dream of a special ride on your heart.
Make your dream a reality, sponsor a HorseChannel ride!

Love, a vote and an update on the Mare. From Tandra Hefley:
Update #2
Fox 10 News was just here. Jill Monier interviewed me and Miracle. I couldn't go into detail earlier about what was going on with her, but I want to let everyone know all their efforts to save her paid off! The Livestock Inspector Supervisor was the one that came to get her. She IS NOT being returned to the hell she was forced to endure. She is going to the state vets office to be evaluated and treated. There is a criminal investigation that has been started. So Miracle is safe! I appreciate everyone that came to see her and offered words of encouragement! I wanted to let everyone know earlier that what was being said was garbage! But I was asked not to until she was picked up so that no one could try to interfere. The people or person that tried to claim she was stolen and not left in the road will pay for what they did to her. All I have to say to the people that tried to defend them is check your facts next time! I know everyone that had something to say thought they were doing the right thing. But when an animals life is at stake it doesn't matter who you like or who you don't. All that matters is that animals life!

So thankful the mare has a good, home. 600 pounds under weight. It's horrible to think of what this beautiful creature has been through. God bless Tandra for rescuing her and bring those evil creatures to justice. Love and a vote.

This happened last week, just a few miles north of my house. So sorry this is long, but I had to share this with all of you, Evil. Don't know how anyone could do such a horrible thing. I left a vote, too.....Tandra Hefley posted this on her Facebook page.
Ok everyone so here's what happened about 2 am regarding the horse. I am extremely tired, so if I don't explain any of it well, please just ask and I will try to explain a different way.

I was headed home on 331st ave going north. Just as I was almost to Sunland Ave I saw what looked like a roll of carpet or maybe a large cardboard box. I swerved around it and decided I should remove it from the road so someone else wouldn't hit it. I turned around, pulled up about 10 feet from it with my headlights aimed at it, and went to get it. When I was a few feet away, the horse raised its head and nickered to me. I almost threw up! This poor animal was hog tied like a kidnap victim would be! Her front legs were tied, the nylon strap went to her back legs, then over her back to her throat. If she tried to move the strap would choke her. I didn't have a knife, so I tried to pull enough slack to get it off one hoof. She would panic when it tightened on her throat and I would have to stop. There was a car headed in our direction so I frantically pull on it and she trusted me enough to get one leg free. Then I quickly undid the rest and tried to get her to stand. She has deep cuts in her legs and throat from fighting, but I did get her up. That's when I saw the hair and blood on the pavement. Somebody had hit her as she lay helpless on the road. I slowly walked her to the side of the road and started calling people for help. Shawn Funkhouser got my trailer and came to help me. It took her two tries, but she loaded like a champ! We got her to my house and called MCSO. They came and made a report as well as called the Felony Animal Crimes Division to make sure whoever did this pays for it! This morning about 7 Natasja Pieters Robbins came and made a report for the Dept of Agriculture Livestock. She is already working to find the person who did this.

As injured as this poor mare is, she never tried to bite or kick me. She did everything I asked of her, even though she is in more pain than I even want to imagine. She has been starved for at least the last year. She is about 600 lbs under weight. She was tied and left to die on a dark road. She was hit by a car and her skin ripped off on the pavement. But she will walk right up and give horse kisses. She will nickered at me as soon as she sees me. And she allows me to clean and doctor her dozens of wounds without protest. No animal should have to endure what this sweet, kind, beautiful, and loving mare has had to endure!

Thank you to Angie Shelley Bassett, Frank Joseph Cooper Jr., T.j. Furness, and Pat Page for your help as well!

I put the other shelf up. So nice to have a place for my my horsey brushes, hoof picks, fly spray, etc. The shingles aren't on, yet. Austin and a friend are finishing it up for me. With school, an overload of homework and work, it's hard for Austin to have the time. He's done with School on the 22nd. Will have it finished, then. Love always and a vote.
