Smiles Were Everywhere!

Sunday was a great day at SaveTheHorses rescue farm in Cumming, GA. We brought out 9 of our 10 dwarf miniature horses.
Saucy sitting pretty! She is 19 inches tall

 A cold wind was blowing but it didn't stop everyone from coming and having a great time. The Knee High gang of Dwarfs put smiles on everyone's faces. Girl scouts to Grandmother's along with Moms and Dads meet the gang.

As the little horses ran around entertaining everyone, some of the visitors asked great questions. Something non horse people make me stop and think. I was asked about Miniature horses. It is a breed of horse. They cannot be taller then 38 inches at the withers, which is the last hairs of the mane at their necks. This is an 'A' and 'B' division according to sizes. The dwarfs are between 18 to 24 inches at he withers. Most weight about 100-150 pounds. They have special needs because being dwarfs, they have deformities. Some more severe than others. They see a farrier who trims their feet monthly. 
As they get older, joint supplements will be needed more and more. We want to do everything we can to make them comfortable. 

Who do you want to love on first?

Some of the children pledged to sponsor the dwarfs for $5.00 a month. That is not a budget breaker but it sure will add up in caring for them all daily. I think we need to get a sponsorship campaign going.  

Not the best quality of film but you can see they are having fun.

What to sponsor a dwarf or a horse?  One time or monthly?
Great gift for a any holiday. As little as $5.00 is a BIG help.
