I am sending you a link to my website pictures that show Chief, Bella (two Angel Acres horses) and Cherokee(stuffed horse) getting to know each other.
Chief was the only one to canter out to greet the new pony. Bella then followed along while the rest of the scaredy cats went running the other way. You will see in the pictures that they all finally came to meet her but only Chief and Bella actually sniffed her and thought of her as a real pony. Bella actually went to her back end and lifted her up with her nose and she fell! and my cute little bella then started grooming her!! next time I have to take the video camera out. It was so cute.
Cherokee is a stuffed pony we use for kids......
Chief is doing well and I LOVE HIM!!!
Gee is EXCEPTIONALLY kind, pleasant, quiet, well-behaved and is a fantastic mover on top of all that! He has no issues, no vices, no bad habits...just a good boy who will make someone a very happy horse owner...really soon!
Big thanks to Fran for her unending support of Angel Acres!
This is Gee waiting for the trailer to be ready to hop on...as you can see his is very anxious...NOT! LOL! Notice Pippin, our barn managers dog, just a foot away from Gee. He is SUCH a good boy!
He has some superficial bites on his back and hiney and is really low in the pecking order...we hope he finds his forever home soon after his training...he really deserves it!

They were fabulous!! They cleaned out Ole Blue (our storage van) and took down some seriously mean wasp nests as well getting her all organized and spiffy! Blue tends to get cluttered pretty quickly...she may not be on the road, but Blue sure earns her keep! LOL! Will post some pics tomorrow.
They mucked stalls for us, (THANK YOU!) they scrubbed water tubs, fed the sheep, goat and pot bellies. They also helped decorate a ton of shoes for our upcoming fundraiser!
BIG THANKS TO LEWISBURY YOUTH GROUP FROM THE ANGEL ACRES GANG!

Greg has been working all weekend for the rescue and every time he gets into a project, the weather seems to say...nope, buddy boy, dont think so...lol...and then it rains!
But...he got the driveway regraded, the entire property mowed, the big fields cut, and of course the obligatory electric cord repair...he is forever cutting it with some sort of equipment!
Will post a picture soon...
Have a great day everyone!

Mid Atlantic and Angel Acres work closely together to help as many horses in need as possible. This lovely mare was adopted out in 2004 and now, due to financial reasons, the sweet girl needs to be rehomed. Knowing our policy of always taking back our horses, the family called us and told us the situation. We were able to send the family money to cover her cost for 2 months while we find her a forever home...we could not do this without the help we have received from our readers and supporters from all over the country.
Big thanks to all who have donated to Mattie's Legacy Fund! If you haven't yet donated, please think about donating today!

Angel Acres Horse Haven Rescue is a 501(c) 3 non-profit rescue dedicated to saving horses bound for slaughter for human consumption. In addition, they also assist in cases of neglect and abuse. Thoroughbreds are rescued from kill pens and adopted into loving forever homes. All adoption applicants and horses up for adoption are screened thoroughly. For more information go to www.saveahorsenow.org.

check him out today...
Jack is doing sooo good!! We finally started taking lessons again so we can learn to control our racehorse speed a little better haha. We also started jumping. The other day we jumped 2'9"!! A friend of mine took us to the local riding club and he made me pround. He didn't spook at the cars on the highway or the dogs barking or the wind or anything. He was such a good boy...
Thank you again for my angel :)

We Rescue Horses
Thank you for clarifying your groups stand on slaughter and thank you for writing back to me. The confusion started when I called and no one could give me a clear cut answer about your groups position.
As you stated in your email below, you ask how many of a rescue organizations horses are sent slaughter...that lends itself to being misinterpreted as being a viable option which your group supports since it is immediately preceded by other outcomes such as adopted, kept until their death, etc. I realize now that is not the case, but maybe in your literature you could preface the packet you mail out with a letter stating your stand on slaughter right from the beginning, thereby ending any confusion before it starts.
I have received no less than a dozen emails stating the same concerns from other rescues you contacted via your equine rescue list email, as they were copied on my original email to you.
Maybe you can send out a clarification to everyone you originally emailed to clear up the confusion...we certainly want all the help we can get, but don't want to take a chance of being perceived as being aligned with the pro slaughter side.
Since your stand is anti slaughter, we would be happy & grateful to be added on your list.
Thank you for addressing this so quickly.

Like Lambs to the Slaughter
Pro Slaughter Groups Lure Unsuspecting Equestrians to their Cause
By Nancy Cole
"The American Horse Council will be presenting a forum on horse welfare issues in DC next week. Interestingly all of their speakers are pro-slaughter." States Nancy Cole. She couldn't be more correct!
