We hope you enjoy this special shout out!
Warren and Vegas
In learning about horses he rode and worked with a few of our rescues. He developed bonds with them, but it was nothing like the way he felt when he had his first ride on Vegas after she returned to J&M Acres in August 2014 when her adopter could no longer look after her. She was never listed because he immediately fell in love with her and has adored her ever since.
We are so happy he has found his very first riding partner and that our sweet Vegas has found her forever dad.
Ross and King
Ross and King's favourite thing to do is trail ride to our local beer farm here on the Sunshine Coast Persephone. The two of them share a couple beers and get lots of attention from the locals and tourists (Kings favourite beer is their Goddess Ale).
King's happy with kids running under him, round him, climbing on him and feeding him treats. The only thing this boy doesn't like is voluntary bath time. All his Thoroughbred girlfriends run to the fence for a cool hose down on a hot day, but King always says "neigh thanks"!
Ron and Rio
After 11 hours in a trailer on the hottest day of the summer, Rio walked off the trailer, looked around at the other horses on the ranch and immediately started eating - he is an Arab after all. He took my western saddle without a flinch, he was gentle with me on his back and over the next few years he became one of my best buddies.
These days he lives on my friend's 300 acre property, which he shares with 29 other horses, many of them rescues as well. He still is as gentle as ever and I can't think of a better partner. As an aside, my wife and I also have a Paint x Clyde rescue mare, a rescue cat and a rescue dog. I guess it's in our blood!
Thanks to Julie, Amy and the other wonderful volunteers at J&M for giving me the opportunity to have Rio.
Troy and Hunter
So far these past several months, Hunter has been doing great. She is very happy at our farm with her best friend "Maggie". She has blossomed into a lovely mare and has become quite the character - she even has a habit of licking the people she likes!
She sure is loved and we are looking forward to many more years and adventures with her!
Jeff and Buddy
Since having his surgery, he has fully adapted to having only one eye, but don't tell him that for he will prove you wrong - I think he thinks he has two.
We love him to pieces!
