My name is Whisper and I am a 17 year old mare. I have been through a lot in my life these last few years and found myself at J&M Acres Horse Rescue originally back in Spring 2013. I was at a terrible home with Douggie, you may remember him. The SPCA luckily stepped in and got us out of there and into the hands of J&M. I wasn't there very long before I was adopted by a really nice family two months later. We had wonderful adventures walking on the dykes, hanging out with the kids and being a family horse.
When they adopted a second J&M Acres rescue horse after a year, I couldn't help but be jealous. He was a nice older horse and I am afraid I was quite a bit mean and picked on him. I guess I just realized that the family was no longer right for me. I ended up back at J&M Acres this Summer after two years with them and I have been here for almost five months now. But don't worry - I am happy again!
I wanted to tell you my story because I thought you to know that sometimes we horses just need the right person. While J&M Acres Horse Rescue might not be my forever home, they have shown me real kindness and have given me a chance to bring out my real potential. I am not writing this letter because I want something for myself, but rather, I was hoping you could grant them a little extra Christmas magic this year. I am not the first troubled horse they have given hope to and I know I won't be the last and since it has been a tough Winter for them so far, I thought it would be nice if you could give them some extra help.
Thanks for reading.
