||There is something special about your first love. When the call came
from Isa asking if we wanted to board a horse, we didn't even have a corral.
But we went to meet Sadat and it was love
at first sight (perhaps first sniff… horses smell soooooooo good! So we
started clearing land, digging holes and installing fence. The work of
keeping horses was just beginning. Sadat taught us everything we needed
to know about horses, from what it feels like to get kicked in the gut
to the feel of a big slurpy horse kiss on your shoulder. He wasn't easy
but he was great and when his time came to move on, he left a hole in our
hearts we've yet to fill.
|An irrepressible charmer, Kelsey
was born at the Kern County SPCA to a mare who was part of a large rescue
effort. He was only a youngster when he came to us for foster care and
it took all of about 15 seconds to fall head over heels in love. At least
for us. For Angel it took a little longer. Serious neurological problems
keep Kelsey from ever being rideable and after 4 short (but memorable)
months with us, he moved to a private sanctuary where he roams free on
700 acres! Not too shabby for a horse who spent the first 15 months of
his life in a 12x12 pipe corral!
