Heart of Phoenix Rescue ~ Foster Homes needed

Since we do rescue, we felt we needed a name. . .
 and even though we have done rescues before, of all of the rescue we've done, if we are going to give this effort a name, it should be after the little  paint mare, Phoenix. . .

she, of all horses, deserves the work to be named after her.

So it will be Heart of Phoenix

So now we have a name, and that is great, but that hardly set us on a path
for success. 

For now, I simply do not have the time in a day with the farm and kids
to hope to be a typical rescue in the regular sense, but I know that I
want to help and a rescue group in this area is so needed. . .

So what can I do?

What can you do?

I will continue as I have, taking in 1 or 2 horses when I can and
have space. I will continue to horses in need on Petfinder and
in other good venues, but I want to see a network of
Fosters for horse develop, at least.

I am going to try to work on heading this up in Southern WV,
and I already know a couple in Kentucky willing to help in their
location with fostering.

I'd like for anyone who reads this blog locally to forward
it to those you know who own horses or have property and
would have a heart to volunteer to do this.

Approval would be needed, and an agreement as a
Foster Home will be required.

Who knows? 

If enough people become aware,
we might be able to really make an impact locally.



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens
