Our Fearless Leader is a man of many talents which of course includes running a very successful horse rescue for the past fifteen years, but he also keeps the facilities in tip-top shape, manages our volunteer recruitment AND he also writes from time to time.

Circle F-riends

'In memory of

Gordon Walker'

We are extremely blessed to be supported by a wide circle of friends.  A very generous donation was received from one of those friends, Charles Edward Walker on behalf of his son, Gordon Walker.  Gordon passed away last year and his last wish was that animal welfare be supported and horses were at the top of the list.  Mr. Walker visited several rescues and other organizations and chose us to be the recipient of Gordon's support in the form of a donation.  Gordon's full story can be seen here .  We were so touched by this story that we wanted to find out more about Gordon.  We contacted Southlands Heritage Farms where Gordon spent the last fifteen years, every weekday morning at the barn at 6:30am sharp, and Jennifer Maynard was kind enough to share this with us with Charles Walkers' blessing.

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome Kevan Garecki, H4 Services Ltd. as a new regular contributor to our Newsletter.

George ... was somewhat of a folk icon some years back. He was constantly getting into some predicament or another and  I wrote constantly about his adventures. Some were just downright silly, while others thoroughly bizarre.

Twitter Follower Sponsorship

May 2012

We have now been on this social networking site for almost one year and have 435 followers and The Winchester Family Business , a Supernatural Fan Site, have pledged their on-going sponsorship of our rescue as one of their supported charities.  There are several sites involved with the Supernatural Fandom and the total followers reach an extremely large audience worldwide. This gives us much increased exposure and we are very grateful. Thank you from all our volunteers and of course, the horses.
