We just wanted to do a quick follow up post and say that they are both settling in wonderfully. Strider has been bonding with Barb's son and Barb herself is in the process of bonding with Bella.
I think that any horse person knows the healing power that these amazing animals are capable of. We are grateful that Barb and her family opened their heart and barn once again to two horses in need of a home and we hope that with the love of their new friends, they will be able to heal after the loss of their irreplaceable horses, Jake and Hawk.
It takes an amazing person to have the courage to open their heart again after such a tragedy so congratulations again, Barb. You have been a wonderful supporter over the years and I am sure your boys are proud of you.
