This month is when we reflect on all that we are grateful for. I have so many to thank, and so much to be thankful for and I know exactly where I to start...
With you, one of the most important people in my life and the lives of the horses. You have given us the breath of life that keeps our lifesaving work alive. Through your continued support, you make it possible for Lifesavers to feed and care for the 200+ horses at our Lancaster, California headquarters, the 120 horses at our California sanctuary, and the 225 horses grazing in South Dakota on leased land.
Your support may have been a generous donation, or it may have been signing a petition to stop horse slaughter, or it might be that you are one of our special volunteers,or maybe you are only able to share your knowledge and news of Lifesavers to others, or maybe you pray for the well being of the horses - anyway you help us...You Help Us.
You have made it possible for us to rescue a few more needy souls this year like most recently - Rains, Cora, Vannah, Teddy, Truffles and Ghirardelli.
You have shared many happy moments with us including the birth of Spring-A-Leak, Stormy Clare, Jiggy and Tennie. We wouldn't have been able to care for these babies and their Mommas without your generous support throughout the year.
You have shared in the sad moments when we have said Good-Bye to our loved ones like Tasha who lived a long life of safety and comfort with us after her early years of abuse where she was beaten and used as a pack horse in Colorado to carry hunted Elk carcasses that weighed too much for her back to bear.
And you support Lifesavers as we build partnerships with other organizations that share our interest in utilizing the spiritual healing properties of horses in therapy programs. The Wounded Warrior Project is one that we continue to develop new Horse Inspired Growth and Healing programs with to serve our returning soldiers who suffer from PTSD and other debilitating injuries. As you can imagine, the horses are generating new life energies in all of the participants of these healing programs.
I am ever grateful for you and I'm sure I don't say it enough, so I just wanted to take this opportunity now to let you know that you are the foundation beneath us, our pillars of strength, and
without you we would not b
