I have alway loved horse, but being a city raised girl I had very few opportunities to enjoy them. In August of 2011 I read a wonderful article about a horse rescue that wasn't too far from my home and I thought "what a great way to be around horses". I went to the open house for Bright Futures Farm and met the most wonderful horses. I decided right then that I wanted to help in any way I could. Having no horse experience Bev accepted me as a volunteer without any reservations. Bev has taught me a lot about horses and the care they need. And in the little over a year I have volunteered there I have found these animals to be truly magnificant, more so than I could have imagined. The horses I work with are the permanent residents at the farm, which means they are the older horses who can no longer be ridden but are far from useless. To see the care that these horses are given by Bev is truly heart warming and very praise worty. Bev gives her heart and soul to these horses everyday and it is amazing how she continues to give. I am very proud to say that I volunteer at Bright Futures Farm and that I call Bev a friend.
