A New Addition to Our Family!!


Hello everyone....this is such an exciting day because we have adopted another rescue horse. She is a beautiful Morgan named Sundance and she came from the same herd as our first rescue horse, Midnight. We got Midnight last February and 3 days later she delivered a colt but he died shortly after birth because of poor health due to her terrible living conditions. Sundance delivered her filly in March but the people who adopted her only wanted the baby so we brought Sundance home....can you believe some people!!!

Sundance has a reddish coat and is a little taller than Midnight but you can see how skinny she is. Midnight has gained back about 40 lbs and is in much better health so now we have to work on Sundance!!


This picture shows how skinny she is...



They are sniffing each other and will soon decide who will be the dominate one. Midnight, on the right, is all filled out and really looks solid. Sundance will need a few months of TLC and good grazing to fill out again.
They are doing their horse thing...vying for dominance.

They decided to be friends and went off together to explore the pasture.
Thanks for joining me on this special day!!!

How wonderful that she has found a new home with you! Both horses are beautiful, and I'm sure that Sundance will be fit in no time! That really is sad that the people wanted her baby and not her and this is how she was treated. :(

Joan, you and George are such special people to adopt large animals. I know they take a lot of work, and I think that Sundance is just the luckiest horse around today!

My DD and family rescued an abused child last December by adopting him, and I felt like that all over again when I read about your adoption of Sundance. You and George are wonderful people to take in another "child". God bless you both! It's wonderful to see how Midnight has gotten so healthy with your nurturing! Keep us up to date on how the friends are doing!! What uplifting news!!! Hugs to you both!!

I am such an animal nut and this story brought tears of joy to my heart that you and George would rescue another horse. I would love to come and see them. Congratulations on your new addition.
