Deck the Stalls for 2018
The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:
Join AAE as we Deck the Stalls with Boughs of Plenty. As the year comes to an end, we are sharing stories straight from the barn to show how your support has helped horses in 2017. This year was very special, and there are so many stories to be thankful for!
As we count down to 2018, please help us as we prepare for another year of helping horses. Your donations will assure we have ample funding for unexpected veterinary needs as we move into our next year.
We want to thank everyone for their love and support!
We hope you enjoy these stories as much as we do!
Have a great holiday season!
Let’s Deck the Stalls with Boughs of Plenty for 2018
On the 31st Day, there was Marshmallow!
Marshmallow is a 20-something young man that AAE brought in from another rescue as a companion for Patches after her two more youthful friends were adopted. Marshmallow has a light duty job in our youth programs, including Pony Pals Farm Days, Pony Parties, Field Trips, and anything else where he can shine as the center of attention. He is an amazing little guy, and he LOVES to show off for his little friends (and the big ones, too) in the arena jumping anything he can. Marshmallow is one of the best ambassadors of the equine persuasion you would ever want to meet.
Last year our sweet Marshmallow had an acute onset of cataracts and could barely see, but he didn’t let it stop him. He still waited at the gate in the morning to come down for his special breakfast. During playtime in the arena with Patches and Daisy, he walked around whinnying like he owned the place. You would have never known by his demeanor that his vision was impaired. Such a sweet soul! However, he was no longer confident running, and jumping was not such a good thing.
While Marshmallow was accepting of his situation, YOU, our generous supporters, made it possible to restore his vision in one eye. Earlier this year, Marshmallow had his cataract surgery. It was a success! Bringing back vision to one eye not only helped his every day life, but he was able to go back to doing what he does best….putting smiles on everyone’s face. He could run, he could jump, and he enjoys playing with kids in the arena.
Without you, Marshy would not have had this opportunity.
Marshy thanks you, we all thank you!
