How We Met

When my Arabian needed to be put down after 22 years of him owning me (due to melanoma)I knew I needed another horse in my life. After much research I contacted the Standardbred Retirement Foundation. I adopted Saltea through them and it's the best decision I ever made. When you've owned the same horse for 22 years you wonder what it will be like building a new relationship but we fit like a glove and I'm so happy to have a new lifelong equine friend. He is a treasured gift..

Hey Argos here
Boy has it been an adventure this year first I had to save my herd from a neighbors crazy stallion. He tore our fence down and attacked us but I tried with all my mite to keep him away and ended up pretty battered myself. I saved them though only 7 out of 23 of us got attacked me the worst. Then I was excepted into the Sheriff's Posse and we went on a practice search and rescue I was nervous at first but soon found out that I like trail rides and like to look for missing people. Then in June I went to a horse show and trotted on my own without other horses around boy was Felicia happy we didn't do great but we had fun. So now we are looking for a new riding instructor and hopefully we can get a few lessons in before winter hits.

Thank you for adopting!! Every horse deserves a chance like what you gave Saltea. After reading your bio, I'm starting to think that Standardbreds are much alike....mine has a lot of the same likes and dislikes! Have fun, and here's a vote!

Come visit me, Ares & Alex.

He's beautiful!Here's a vote!I'd also like to share with as many people this favorite poem of mine:" All that you need is a horse"



When your day seems out of Balance

And so many things go wrong...

When people fight around you..

And the day drags on so long...



When Parents act like Children

in-laws make you think "Divorce"...

Go out into your pasture

and wrap your arms around your horse.



His gentle breath enfolds you,

and he watches with those eyes,

He may not have a PhD,

But he is Oh,So wise!!



His head rests on your shoulder.

You embrace him Oh so tight.
He puts your world in balance,

And makes it seem all right.



Your tears they soon stop flowing.

The tension is now eased.

The garbage has been lifted,

and you're quiet and at peace.



So when you need the balance

from circumstances in your day...

the best therapy that you can seek...

Is out there eating Hay......................
