    My thoughts are, with closing the FB group, now people can't see what's going on. Shouldn't a rescue group be transparent (as has been stated but I'm re-stating for effect/purpose)? I'm a member of other groups but they aren't animal rescues.

    I should have joined the group early on, then just watched, but didn't. Too engrossed in the whole thing. I'm still curious about the trailer, though.

    I notice that page was just set up yesterday.

    Instead of the drama & theatrics of of closing their other page, they could have just set their privacy settings so that others couldn't post to their wall and comments had to be approved. But, they should be giving updates on the horses in their care.

    So, this is the new, revamped page? The 'everything is fine on the homefront but the real page is only for THE group' page??

    I'm glad CCH came back on and explained a little further.

    So, what happens now?? Now that's it's out of the bag the *ahem* rescue is possibly using a dog rescue's number to save horses? Or are there bigger fish to fry??

    They have pretty much made the "closed" page about other horses - people telling stories and posting pictures - usually the successful rescue story.
    Someone on there has asked the question "Is this a rescue site or not?" Is wondering why no available horses were up. Apparently they are now on the other page but Deanna says it's all in the "process" of being uploaded.
    Really not sure why they closed that page. Apparently website is not up to snuff either.

    Sounds like they have no clue how to effectively use FB groups, pages, and their own website. I know you are shocked.

    Well, just a little shocked, but, I have to say, I have my FB page and website for my business and, truly, for me, it's hard to keep up! I was totally clueless about the internet stuff and now have been shoved kicking and screaming onto it. I have adapted and learned to deal with it. Getting it streamlined has been a 'w'itch (think rhyming word) to deal with. 'That' I can empathize with.

    Still, I'd like to know about the licenses or numbers for this place.

    Oh, I can understand having to struggle to keep up with the technology. I've refused to do anything with Pinterest because FB and our website keep me busy enough for the rescue. BUT if you want to run a nonprofit, you need to make that commitment. I have seen how very much FB has helped the rescue.

    BUT they're not professional, and you've GOT to run a professional FB page and website to be taken seriously.


    And I'll learn about Pinterest after our big fundraiser (Bluebonnet Horse Expo) is over and I've taken a couple of days off to sleep. (I miss sleep.. ).

    True dat. I've learned I had to flat sit down and take the time to do things, and I still get behind. Not an excuse but it's a bigger commitment than I thought it would be in the first place. Heh...

    I am on Pinterest but it's my personal one and still haven't gotten around to doing a biz one, if there is such a thing. Twitter is my personal one but it's such a name, no one thinks it's personal.

    And another thing, keeping up with all the passwords?? Yikes. So, now I understand why a lot of companies have internet folks just for their internet stuff. I'm not that big....yet....

    What I love is that you can set up Twitter & Pinterest to automatically post the Tweet or Pin onto your FB wall.

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Pinterest; but sadly, I have cellular, which is limited and slow, broadband; so not a good match for Pinterest. But, I think it would definitely be a great tool for a rescue.

    Apparently I missed a discussion about CCH's horses.
    All the messages again got deleted.
    Someone said they were not prepared for the 31 horses coming in. Big shock there.
    Apparently Canada has closed it's borders to our horses for slaughter.
    Certain auctions were notified and they mentioned Fallon, NV.

    One person I know was banned from the rescue's page for asking if it was a page for a rescue or for posting pretty horses. She asked, very politely, if the rescue planned on posting pictures of horses or information about the rescue.

    She was torn to pieces by the members and then banned.

    It was copy/pasted on my personal forum.

    Tyra Rhnee Canary I am confused. Did this board turn into another place for people to share their horse pictures, or is it a rescue board?

    Montie Lyn Robison Liebsack I'm sorry that you are offended by our attempt to make the group a warmer place, and to get to know each other better with "all the pretty horsies", as we are all here to ultimately help the rescue horses. There is not a lot that is being posted by the rescue itself at the present moment, so this seemed like a good opportunity to bring something like this to the group.

    Brigette Norman I guess people think this **** happens by clicking your heals. Pay attention to the page and you'd see more than the pretty horses. Would you rather the rescue be out all day caring and nurturing these horses or making sure that the Facebook page is "proper" enough for everyone. Jesus Christ people SHUT UP. It was a great opportunity for everyone to brag about there rescues and maybe give someone else the courage to take on the task by showing and sharing there stories and after maths of rehabilitation. This page is wonderful and so is each and every one of the people contributing! You can't satisfy everyone nor should you feel obligated to. Someone who truly understood the hard work would realize it rakes time to get everything in order.

    Tyra Rhnee Canary No. Stuff happens by being honest, and not hiding things. And by not removing people when they ask honest questions. I am also intelligent enough to not have to use foul words and anger to get my point across. I tried sitting back and waiting for the answers to the questions that other were asking, but it seems none are forth coming. There are a lot of nasty rumors going around about this rescue, and I try to keep an open mind, and to be patient before I make a decision. However in this case, I seriously wonder. I am sure I will be blocked for not being all buttery farts and rainbows, but that is not what makes the world go round. I really do wish the hoses well.

    Montie Lyn Robison Liebsack NNER has been honest and has not hidden anything ~ there are certain things invovling the CCH horses that cannot be released at this point. We realize that not all answers are coming out as fast as some people would prefer, but again, the work with the horses comes first, before anything else. There are a very small group of volunteers who are close enough to help, so it limits the amount of time Deanna can dedicate to everything else with the rescue. You, Tyra have been here for 2 weeks, you really have no idea as to all that has & is going on with the rescue. Yes, we are well aware of the nasty rumors, and the nasty people who start them as well as the nasty people who believe them, but the horses MUST be our first and foremost focus. To me, it sounds like your "open" mind was made up before you came to this group. As for your buttery farts and rainbows, well, if you do not want to be part of the friendly community that makes up this group, you are welcome to leave at ANY time. We have removed & blocked people who were here to do nothing but cause trouble, and we will continue to do so, if need be, to keep this a pleasant group dedicated to helpking horses. If you would like top argue & ***** about NNER, well I'm sure there are other groups & forums that you could go to that will welcome you with open arm, lol! smile
