Welcome to My Side of the Fence

Holiday 2019

This year was full of transitions; we lost devoted volunteers - several moved away, others due to medical issues and job changes had to stop coming to the farm; we lost devoted and longtime donors. Change is never easy but it is a part of life whether we like it or not. It opens new doors and opportunities, but we shed many tears, as well.
This year we were blessed by the generosity of many and we thank you. Our Equine Relief Fund gave out over $25,000 to help other rescue horses all over the country. We paid for castrations of several neglected stallions; now they have a chance to be adopted into good homes. We helped with the vet bills for a large scale rescue involving over 30 horses.

Our horse population is aging and we are seeing more of them having medical issues and it is a constant balance keeping up with everything. Everything revolves around their quality of life, keeping them comfortable.

Spring 2019

We are so grateful to all the people that came out to help us in the freezing cold to care for the horses ≠≠-- thank you. Many hands really lessen the load. The horses are ready for spring, too, and to have their winter blankets off. They are itchy from shedding their winter coats and look forward to feeling the warmth of the sun on their backs. ...

Christmas 2002 - The Definitive My Side of the Fence

'Ok, so they arenít ridable anymore.' It never ceases to amaze me how many people get rid of a horse that has been good to them for many years because they canít ride them. It just astounds me that people who have had the same horse for a long time, 10-20 years, just get rid of them like they were never a part of the family. Read More ....
