This is beautiful Julia, a former Polo horse we truly would like to give a wonderful retirement too.

She is 16 years old and have worked so hard teaching us people about the sport.

Julia has been there every day. Now we would like to give thanks back.

Why the Hate?
Dear Friends and Followers,

img_5006
I feel compelled to address some comments that have come to my attention regarding Olivia’s involvement in our horse rescue campaigns and her role with AWL and our horses. It makes me very sad that I even had to take the time to write this, but I want to go on record with our petition.
Anyone who knows me, and AWL, will know that I have always included my children, where appropriate, in our rescue missions. I believe very strongly in teaching compassion and helping my children to learn how wonderful and enriching relationships with animals can be for our lives.

And I hope that one day they will help me to spread the word about animal rescue as they go out into the world.
Recently, my daughter Olivia has been playing an active role in our horse rescues. And she has been visible in our campaigns and fundraising efforts.
She has her own private horse, Sunshine and is on her way to becoming an accomplished rider. But I wanted her to understand the plight of horses who are not as fortunate as Sunshine. And to understand the complicated and very challenging process of rescuing those horses. And also, the care involved once they are rescued.
Somehow, somewhere along the line, some people have started to speculate that we are rescuing horse FOR Olivia. And the story is being changed into Olivia somehow having a very privileged position in this process. I don’t know the motivation.
Jealousy? Bitterness? Ignorance?
Whatever the case, it has resulted in Olivia being insulted, bullied, made to feel bad for doing something good that comes from her heart and her love of animals.
So going forward I am going to keep Olivia’s contributions to our horse rescue missions more private.
She will, of course, help me to care for these wonderful animals who need a team to keep them well. But I will not shine a spotlight on her until I feel it will be safe and productive to do so.
The animal rescue community is full of wonderful people. And so many times we must waste energy defending our good works against those who spew hate.
I continue to hope against all hope that I will not have to do this again.
Love,
Mia

Let me Tell you Something

I am old, however, filled with wisdoms.

When you listens without any expectations, you will know what to do, and what road to continue on.

Don’t always fight me to be right, see me as your teammate.

Don’t take out your frustration on me, I am not your punchbag. We are thinking living creatures that has emotions and thoughts.

Give back, and your heart will forever say thank you.

That’s Amore!

I am very sorry for the long silence!

It will become a change to the better, I promise.

A couple of weeks ago, I lost a very dear friend of mine. It really knocked me down in to many different grieving faces.

A tornado of feeling and fears. Questions.

Her husband didn’t want anyone to publish pictures of her. And I respect that very much.

I miss you 💫

They are both former riding school horses from the same place (24 and 26 years old.)

The palomino I picked up in October 2017 and the brown two weeks ago, brought to the same place.

Hello old Friend ❤️

When Your Body Speaks

0

Always listen to your body, they say.

It’s interesting how we can reject our inner hearing to our most important “home”, our body. For months, have I made sure that everyone from children to rescue Animals got a good start in their mornings, followed by snacks and dinner (lunch at school) Me, starts off with coffee and in the afternoon I realize I need to eat something… a croissant.

Dinner time, exhausted to make something for myself makes quick bites of whatever vegetarian food I can find from the refrigerator.

While Rescuing others …..made me realize that I forgot myself.

It’s never to late to teach an old dog sit! Time to change.

That’s Amore!
