  • Rescue drafties arrive - hoooray!

    Not into debating rescue, but this Feb for various complicated reasons, I "bailed" a horse out of a kill pen- a big (really big) old draft (Belgian). Got him to a rescue in Texas, then bought him (and his new girlfriend) a second time to make sure they were safe.
    Boarded them there while I could make arrangements here so that their new digs would work out.
    Because Texas (and VS) they needed to do a full quarantine again so got a new shed, put in new fencing and I hope it will work for 30 days (or whenever they clear QT) they are! This was taken in TX. The gelding I rescued initially is on the right and his GF is the one with the long forelock (and nasty looking foot).
    Very sweet, easy going, lovely horses. Big thanks (so many thanks) to Horseworks who got him and kept them both for me, and for Charles Vondra transport for toting them here.

            I have a very big soft spot for Belgians. What a sweet couple. Thank you for saving them.

              Does the ground shake wherever Bonnie and Clyde walk?

              How old are they, do you know?

              They look like they are curious and wondering, contented to be there.

                      Love them!
                      They're like a little old couple sitting at the breakfast table just quietly enjoying one anothers company.

                      And they do have a job-being the cutest pasture puffs ever!

                        Belgians are my favorite breed. Thank you so much for helping them and giving them a home

                          They are so beautiful! Well done for giving them a new home. We don't have many belgians here in Australia and I have never met one, but I have always loved the look of them.

                                I am unable to determine their cuteness level on the amount of photos provided. Please provide more photos so I can properly appreciate this couple.

                                      Huge kudos to you. And thank you for giving this large, lovely couple their well-earned slippers and rocking chairs in their golden years.
