Horse Rescue : Happy Tale!

Mount Horeb Freedom Valley Horse Rescue Horse Finds New Home!

Christine Markle-Welch of Freedom Valley Horse Rescue shares a happy tale about a horse that almost went to the meat grinder, but now has a happy new home. We hope you will enjoy this article from the Freedom Valley Horse Rescue blog too.

Finding Echo

March 17th, we outbid the meat buyers for a lovely 12 yr old chestnut-Arab cross gelding. He was trained to ride- they said that he was a trail horse. He handled very well,and is quite nice! After getting to know him,we decided to name him Echo.

Echo- Even Better Than Expected

I am thrilled to let you know how wonderful Echo turned out to be. He is older than we thought, and does need his teeth done. Echo rides and handles like a dream. He has a lovely smooth gait, I am so happy we saved him!!!

Echo Finds a Loving Home

My good friend came out to meet him, she was looking for a good older horse for her daughter. They took him home this morning.
Later this afternoon, we went to visit. Lo and behold, what do I see as we are pulling up the driveway? The youngest daughter already riding Echo! My heart swelled, and it did bring tears to my eyes! I felt like the proudest Mom in the world!! Echo is a tolerant fellow, such a good, good boy!! Oh MY GOSH!! To think he could have gone for meat last week! YaY!!!

About the Author:
image Christine Welch Christine Markle-Welch, and her husband, Howie, Welch, started their rescue in May '08 as a result of watching so many nice horses end up going for meat. To date they have saved over 65 horses from that terrible end, and are always ready to help more. They are a non-profit organization. Although they are not yet registered, they believe that profiting from their horses' situation would be wrong. Their goal is to save, and find homes for as many horses as they possibly can, and work on training those who need it so they won't end up in that position again.
