Hi Everyone!

Sorry I haven't been here on ABR in awhile. I can't be everywhere at once.  But I did want to drop in with a few updates:

As of now, ALL the FoB sponsored "New Holland Five" horses are adopted out !!!!   The last to go was Sargeant, a big belgian who just was green and needed someone who didn't mind his giant size.  He lives just 3 miles away, so I see him often out in the fields. 

Equihab attended the FoB 2008 Celebration ( PHOTOS ).  Thank you for having us as your guest.   On Saturday we were allowed to bring horses, so we brought three Equihab horses, two of which were FoB saves: SweetPea Latte and Sasha.    THANK YOU, THANK YOU so much for everyone's support!  

Overall all is well at Equihab.  Our volunteers are working really hard to meet goals.   We're just working overtime to do fundraising before cooler weather sets in, so that we can buy enough hay.   We've updated our web site and will continue to add features over the next few weeks.    We also sponsor a new Equihab.INFO site to address reasons why horses may end up needing help from a rescue.     And don't forget our adopt-a-horse email list, to help horses who need homes find a new owner.

The horses are all doing well.  No injuries, illnesses, or deaths.   The economy is slower so adoptions are a little slower, but overall everyone is doing well. 

   Latte aka SweetPea that sweet little pony is still up for adoption.  We've gotten all her care/shots/coggins/dental/farrier done, and we'll even deliver her to her new home at no charge.  Adoption fee of $200.  Please spread the word.  Latte deserves a good, forever home.  :-)

Come see all of our horses for adoption.
