Okey dokey everyone...here is the Angel Acres Tree...so far!!

Big thanks to:
  • Fran
  • Suzanne
  • Gloria
  • Becky
  • Cory (internet donation - card will go up tomorrow)
  • The Brubaugh Family

  • Everyone listed above has sent us a card with a dollar inside and some have sent more!! It's kind of bare now, but we are hoping for a full tree!

    If you would like to participate in our fundraiser just send us a holiday card and enclose $1 and we will put the card on the tree...several people have emailed saying they want to send an e-donation...we said GREAT...we will post a card for you!

    This is the easiest fundraiser...like ever!! By itself a $1 literally won't buy a cup of coffee...but together...WHAT WE CAN DO!! We have tons of readers, volunteers and supporters...and we are always asked what they can do to help...

    So...if you want to help, send a card, and pass on our fundraiser info! The horses would thank you if they could (but they are too busy in their stalls being all toasty warm and munching hay)...

    Our addy is...drum roll please...

    Urgent Home Needed For Older Appy Gelding!

    This just in from one of our humane officer friends in MD...Please cross post far and wide!

    Help is needed for a 20 + year old Appaloosa gelding he is located in Frederick County, Md in the Rocky Ridge Area.

    He is in an extremely neglectful home and is desperate need of re-homing. Owner is cooperative and is will to sign to horse over. He is in good body, but needs severe hoof care. He must go to a home that understands he is just a field ornament/pasture pal.

    Grass and hay is all that he needs… he is on some grain thanks to the neighbor but he doesn’t need it. He is a bit hard to catch but once caught he is a good boy. If you can help this sweet guy...

    Please Contact Officer Luther at BLuther@FrederickCountyMD.gov or call her at 301-600-3737

    Stormie - Adopted last weekend by Tokens Mom, Nikki!


    Stormie was another TB mare in danger...she is by a fabulous sire and just needed a chance at life...not making it on the track, she ended up at New Holland...fast foward... a few calls and a place to go (thank you Clare!), and she was safe!

    Now residing with her equine buddies in Erie, PA and new Mom, Nikki, she is settling in well. This photo does not do her justice...she is a gorgeous mare...we will update with new photos soon!

    Big thanks to Nikki and her family for being an Angel Acres repeat adopter...

    Pilot...20 year old TB finds forever home!!!

    Pilot and Jo leaving for home...Pilot was bought at auction a few years ago...turned into a lesson horse...then was going to be headed back to auction because he was no longer needed in the riding program. They said they didn't really want to send him to the sale, so they contacted a friend of ours, who tracked us down (not very hard to do lol) and we bought him from them.

    Pilot is an outstanding, wonderful guy and Jo was looking for a horse to help out/rescue and for someone calm and wonderful to ride...she had received our email about helping out Cloud and Belle...and since Cloud had a home (thank you Amy) we suggested she consider Pilot.

    And the rest...as they say...is history! Big thanks to Jo for giving this guy a wonderful, loving home!!!

    Tee Abandoned At Farm - Now Beloved Horse...Priceless...

    Tee and Thelma...Thelma adopted Tee about 3 weeks ago...looks like he's found his forever home!

    Tee was abandoned at a boarding farm in Northern York County and after 6 months, the owner of the farm needed to get him placed...and we give this gentleman a TON of credit!

    He took care of Tee, got his feet done, fed him, made sure he was groomed, etc AND tracked me down (we were away, then cell trouble, then sick son etc) and asked for our help...all while trying to track down the dead beat woman who owned him...he followed the rules of playing fair and still lost out on 6 to 8 months board...sigh...

    Why can't people take care of their animals and if not, ASK FOR HELP instead of avoiding the issue and putting their horse in danger? The gentleman could have sent Tee off to auction, but he has a kind heart and didn't want to do that, lucky for Tee...others horses have not been so lucky who were in a similar situation.

    Kudos to Charlie for taking care of him, Kudo's to our favorite Parelli Student/Instructor Amy for offering him a ride and refusing to accept a penny, and of course, Kudo's to Thelma for taking this sweet guy into her heart and home!

    Dumpster Diving For Angel Acres ;o)

    Well, well, well...lol...looks like Ms. Fran, Linda and Scott are on their way to a race track in Maryland...they are on a mission...Dumpster Diving for SHOW Program Labels to help the Angel Acres horses!! What a wonderful thing to do for our rescue horses!

    They will be rooting through lots of feed bags (scissors and stapler in hand) for the Legends, Reliance and Triple Crown labels (proof of purchase NOT bar codes) from the feed bags left for recycling at the track. Each label they collect earns us 25 cents...may not sound like a lot...but so far, Ms. Fran aka Dustins' Dreamer and Gee's Mom, has collected (in about a week) $72 worth of labels!! Thats at least 7 bags of grain for our gang!!

    Be sure to write to Fran for more info about the program!

    Thanks Gang!!

    Also...be sure to check out the Angel Acres Gift Store for great gifts for your horse and non horsey friends!
