Review from Guidestar
February 6, 2011

I began following Horse Feathers at it's inception in 2006, when I watched in awe as a horse blossomed, and thrived from a neglect situation so severe that I felt there was no chance for recovery. I continued to observe their operation, and liked what I saw.

Shortly thereafter, I began
to ask what I could do to assist this organization in continuing their mission. I began to assist with grant writing, fund raising drives, and made trips to the rescue to assist with evaluation of the horses, and work days. I continue to provide assistance whenever I can to continue their mission, and provide more services to the area they serve.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

On my first visit, I met several of the horses that I had read and heard about online. I knew what they were facing and their condition when they arrived, and saw what good care, and love had accomplished. Their friendly trusting demeanor spoke volumes in testament to their treatment, and level of care they had received since their arrival. I observed the children who come to work with the horses, and watched as they developed relationships with both animals and others, and the life's lessons learned.

As a member of the Board of Directors of this organization, we are continually working to provide better care for the animals, and provide a means to assist with their care. We are in development of an Equine Assisted Therapy Program which will offer the sanctuary horses a vital role in helping heal those who seek assistance, as well as providing the one on one interaction that these horses crave.

I first learned of Horse Feathers on a blog I was watching quite a few years a ago. The first thing that impressed me about Cheri(RT) was her committment to the horses under her care. There is no one that works harder for these souls than RT. There are many stories of how she has saved horses from near death and with love and care made them whole again. Her biggest struggle is keeping her organization solvent. She probably could take in more unwanted horses, but it takes a lot of money to take care of them. So she gives the one's in her care the best she can and relies on volunteers and donors to help. Those of us involved with her want her to succeed with her organization and will remain committed to her and the horses at Horse Feathers.

I have known Cheri White Owl for over two years now and her hard work and determination are amazing. She has a children's program and a program for our American veterans. She not only helps and heals horses, but she helps and heals children and veterans. Amazing place!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing the effects of the horses on those who visit.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I've not been there in person but those who are associated with Horse Feathers are just as committed as Cheri.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build a new barn, get a golf cart to help the veterans get out to see the horses easier and continue in the positive movement of sharing the experience of horses with those in need.
