Well, after seeing how many people remember Tullie from Horse Feathers,
I thought some of you might like to see Ernie, the once-emaciated
colt who struggled after hernia surgery.

Remember this little guy?

Well, here he is today:





I fell in love in love with Ernie the first time I went to Horse Feathers and it wasn't long before Ernie made it clear that I was to be his person. I worked with him for a year at HFER and finally adopted him in January of this year. He is sweet and so smart and the friendliest horse anyone has ever met. Cheri and Viet did an amazing job raising this horse that nearly didn't get a chance. Today he is happy, very healthy and still growing!

We owe a great debt to Cheri, Viet and all of the people who sent money and prayers for Ernie when he needed them. As we enter this holiday season, I wanted to be sure and let you all how much you are appreciated.

He looks AMAZING, Pia - thanks so much for the update and the picture!!

If I'm remembering right, there were the most wonderful pictures posted of Viet and Ernie, when Ernie was recovering from his surgery - hopefully I'm thinking of the right horse! I think in one of the pictures they had actually fallen asleep together, with Viet cradling Ernie. It was very very touching.

Thank you!

Wow!  I remember Ernie and most of Cherie's rescues.  She was one of the original rescues on the forum.  Ernie has certainly gone from a scared baby to a beautiful horse with wise and knowing eyes.  You are so lucky to have each other!
