How We Met

My friend Joanne and I adopted Ben from "Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue" in Woodbine, MD. They rescue draft horses from being bought by the "meat-buyers" at the New Bolton, PA auction. When these horses can no longer work 10-12 hour days, they get sent there. We have had him since April and he has blossomed from a shy, under-weight workhorse who didn't know why anyone wanted to pet or groom him and did not know what a treat was, to a big old 2,000 pound, carrot and apple eating, friendly, people loving and truly "gentle giant" who melts everyones heart that meets him. Take a look at their website:

Hi Big Ben! Just a vote for U and my owner said you remind her of her first mare, a sorrel quarterhrse with flaxen mane & tail. Flash was her name and she died a while back at almost 30 years of age. Stop by and see Petite Fleur

Big Ben is SOOOO Pretty!!!!!!
If it’s not too much to ask, could I ask 2 more votes out of you? One for Bullet #41020 for HOTD and one for Velvet #106799 for HOTM. TO FIND A HORSE BY THEIR PAGE NUMBER, LOOK AT YOUR ADDRESS BAR AND REMOVE THE LAST NUMBERS, TYPE IN THE NUMBER OF THE PAGE YOU WANT TO GO TO, AND PRESS ENTER. THIS IS MUCH EASIER THAN USING THE SEARCH UNDER ‘YOUR HORSE PROFILES’. Please vote for them and blog back on Sandy’s page, please! Don’t EVER forget to NOT to vote on the Campaign Page! Please and thanks, --Sandy--

so sad...
Are you an American Idol fan? Ever loose a good friend? Kristy Lee Cook, the darling country girl on the most recent American Idol, got the boot April 16 and she wants her horse back! She had to sell her nice barrel horse, Midnight, to make it onto the show. Any idea of how we can help her out? So far, we'll try to make the effort more known by word of mouth and SURELY the man who bought her horse will sell it back! Copy and paste this to at least TWO horse profiles that are NOT your own and help get the word around!

Come visit me, Awesome King, Jenna & Awesome Cougarand.
