An FOB mare named Velvet in KS   Horse Rescue Updates

Hello everyone...

I spent time yesterday at Rainbow Meadows Equine Rescue, Inc., in Sedan, Ks (way south almost to the Oklahoma border.)  It was a windy, cold but beautiful day as we rode through the beautiful pastures dotted with horses .  Some formed their own little herds...others seemed to prefer the company of no one. 

Rainbow Meadows is at the basin of the famed Flint Hills.  Suddenly, the most beautiful horse emerged up on a ridge.  Karen Everhart, director of the rescue, said, "that's Velvet...the FOBs saved her."

Velvet came trotting toward us.  She is a stunning mare.  She also exudes complete contentment grazing the green pastures that she considers her home. 

I didn't have my camera (I'm so mad at myself over that.)  But, I will be going back again in a few months and I promise to bring you glorious photos of a glorious horse.

Karen asked me if I would post this to you.  It is the first time I have actually initiated a thread...I'm so happy that it is about triumph rather than tragedy.

I hope this makes some of you smile!

Thank you, FOB Team Velvet, for my life.  I am a happy girl!

Love,  Velvet

Ok...I'll ask Karen to take me some (by popular demand).  I'm just so mad I didn't have my camera...I could have got some sensational shots!

Yes, the Rainbow Meadows website is great---Team Velvet is sponsoring Velvet there in retirement so she is "home sweet home forever"...a very happy ending for this beautiful girl.
