Emma's new home!!

Postby Nickie on Fri Sep 08, 2006 10:24 am

On Monday if things go according to plan, Emma will be off to her new home in Lyle!! Woohoo!! I have been afraid to say anything just in case it did not work out, plus I have been too busy to even log in here much! :shock: Everyone keep your fingers crossed that everything goes according to plan. Gary from Broken Oaks will be picking her up and taking her to her new mom, who is one of his volunteers. Emma will become a companion pony for an adorable little blind pony that has been needing a buddy. She will also be allowed to go at her own pace and just relax and learn to trust people on her terms. :D

I just want to give another shout out to Broken Oaks Equine Retirement Center. I emailed Gary about taking Emma and he has been amazing with helping me find her a home. Broken Oaks fills a void in rescue by offering a place for horses considered too old, "useless", and/or "worthless" to retire and spend the rest of their days in peace. If you can spare any change at all, please think about a donation to help them care for their permanent residents. As we all know, older and special needs horses are very expensive, so every little bit helps! http://brokenoaks.org/ (All donations are tax-deductable!! :D )

Fantastic news! I hope we can convince her new mom to post here and keep us updated. I think a lot of us have a real soft spot for Emma.

Hiya, Karen here (Emma's soon to be new mommy). Yup, I will absolutely post here and keep you all updated on how she does. We eagerly await her arrival, and I'm so glad to give her a place to call her own. I plan to take pictures when she arrives (my blind guy Peach is terrified of the sound of cameras, but with Emma to distract him, I'm sure I can get a few). I'll post all about her homecoming :)

Digital cameras are silent and make posting much, much easier.
No act of compassion is ever wasted, no matter how small.

Mine is digital. Just the sound of it making any quiet clicks is enough to send him running. Being blind, his hearing is excellent. He hears it in my hand and that's it. I've tried opening the shutter before I go to the pasture, but as soon as he hears those clicks while it sensors the light, he's gone. He was shot at, so I think he feels it must be a gun cocking or something. Poor Peach.
