A note to potential sponsor:
Every horse needs several sponsors to fully fund their care, averaging $300 per month at Dove Creek Equine Rescue.
Angel is a 15 (2003) year old dark bay Thoroughbred mare. Registered with the Jockey Club, she came to the rescue in 2009 from another rescue when Laurie was privately taking in rescue horses at her ranch. Angel had mental and emotional problems and did not want to be touched by humans. It was heart-wrenching to see her fear and terror when we tried to work with getting a halter on and off of her. After several years spending time in the herd, Angel has come around in many ways. A greatly respected trainer and a friend told Laurie that Angel would probably not be safe under saddle, based on the work he did with her, and recommended to let her roam with the herd and "just be a horse." Now, and to our delight, she allows volunteers to groom her. A beautiful horse, with a tormented past, Angel has depth in her eyes. If you slow down and listen to her soft breath upon which her ghost story rests, you might tune into the deeper currents that lie within...tuning into the whispers of Spirit. Whatever happened to Angel before she arrived at Dove Creek, we will never know. What we have been able to offer has been a place to heal and soothe the wounds of her soul. Watching her run with the herd is a site that brings tears to our eyes and a smile within our heart as we get to experience her true beauty and essence, her ability to run free. We are grateful she was able to find us, thus allowing us the opportunity to witness her healing, listening to her needs, a real compromise in today's world.
