I have been volunteering at Whimsical Equine Rescue, Inc. since May 2009. In that short time I have seen volunteers come and go and I have seen horses come and go. I have seen Karen and Lisa make themselves sick trying to care for all of them. I have continuously tried to find ways that I could help because I truly believe in what they are doing. These animals are part of America’s history. We used them to work our farms before the machines took over. They run at our race tracks and make money for their owners, just to be tossed aside when they can no longer run. Some owners do care enough to see that they end up in places like Whimsical where they can find good homes. Some just send them to auction and the animals ends up who knows where. Whimsical’s biggest need is for money. I know everybody asks for money. I always have the same reaction “you and everybody else”. Back in October I saw the horses brought in due to neglect and abused. The horses were so malnourish, it broke my heart. With hard work and a lot of money they are almost ready to find their new homes where they will get the respect and love they deserve. What does Whimsical get out of this? Just the warm fuzzy feeling knowing they helped make it happen. These horses are receiving a second chance at a happy healthy life they deserve. I work a full time job and have a family to care for. I put in the time and financial support I can and I am proud to have just a small part in helping. I orginally wrote that story for the March 2010 Whimsical newsletter. Since that time I was asked to become a board member. Naturally, I said yes even though my only reward is that warm fuzzy feeling of doing what's right.
