Yes, K's paypal address is the same. Please note: She has never asked us for money. Last fall, 5 suggested that we should be helping out with the grain and hay for winter. So if people want to, they can send a little along. Remember if you put "gift" on paypal, K won't have any money deducted for paypal fees. K has footed the bill for everything since the "trust fund" that was provided last spring has run out.
No one is required to contribute. I never expected Funny to live a year after she was bought by the syndicate. Old ottb mares are so tough, I should have realized that since I've had 3 of them. Ottb mares don't quit.
I did not see Erin's post last November. Did she do an article on K and Funny? If so, can someone link the site here, please?
I think Kim calls her Funny or Momma. She was looking great last time I saw her! I will try and get more pics when I get out of this hospital stay, or if someone else wants to go that would be fine too. Kim is very gracious and welcoming, just let her know you are coming so someone is home.
I think it would be awesome to get together for lunch soon, any ideas on a good place?
JUST saw this thread. AMAZING journey. Could you post (or PM me) the paypal address for donations? I could do a dribble or two and this is just too impressive.
Will check out the FB page/photo album over the weekend.
With all the crap going on in the world (equine & 'real'), this is just the warm/fuzzy we all need.
Thank you all - original saviours - for what you did. You've earned your wings...especially BluenGray (Kim?)!
Oh - and for the record: The Ice Cream Man, Greenwich, NY; Guptill's Coney Express, Albany, NY; We-Li-Kit, Abington, CT ... And We-Li-Kit has Percherons...
Your mare is doing well, the vet thinks she has only 10-20 percent of her sight remaining. But she knows the farm well and her large bay boyfriend is always nearby. We were concerned about her mobility. She went through a period were she seemed wobbley on her feet. But the vet checked her out and there is nothing urgent. To reinforce the vet's point, she and her peeps were blasting around in the snow on Weds.
So, one year later, she is happy, comfortable and forever eating. I want to thank everyone again for their kind words and support. This has been a great year for Funny, and us. Thanks again to all her owners for getting her into a happy place. She deserves it.
There was an update back in August on her Facebook page that she was losing her sight but doing well otherwise. Nothing since then. I hope if she needs anything someone will post and let us know. I have sent dribbles a few times and would be happy to help our girl more if she needs it.
