Circle F-riends

Rene Puppe with Storm

The title sponsor for our 2nd Annual Poker Ride/Walk is Rene Puppe, President, PSE Pro Stage Canada Inc. specializing in manufacture/repair of custom control panels for the tower crane industry.  He has lived in BC for 25 years-Abbotsford resident for the last 10-12 years.  Rene responded to the Abbotsford Times article .  He was particularly taken with the story of Storm and Thunder and after seeing the Horse Rescue Stories/video came to visit.  He had always  wanted a horse, but his lifestyle was not conducive.  He told me that he certainly would not want his horse to end up neglected like Storm.  After seeing Storm’s improvement and the rest of our facility, sponsoring the Poker Ride was simply the right thing to do said Mr. Puppe.

And all of us, including the horses, thank you so very much!

It was during the first week of my return to the Lower Mainland in the mid 1990s that I saw a sign for Circle F. I was intrigued, but filed it away for when – as I told myself – my life would be on a more even keel.

Circle F Barn Cats

This is our newest barn cat Smudge who found us in July; a very friendly fluffy tortoise shell. It turns out it was an owner surrender who has been defleed, dewormed & is UTD w/vaccines.

Contact Lisa with any cat concerns & notify her when cat food is low by calling/texting her cell.
