Seems like ages, eh? But today, yes, today we’re having a name that soap contest! Actually, we’ll be naming three soaps, so get your thinking caps on and start offering up some names, cuz there’s three chances to win! And when you’re done here, why not trot on over the The Store… It’s bare bones at the moment, but you can still do a bit of online shopping and support the Wild Horse Rehab project. I’ll actually be working on it off and on today and the rest of the week, so come back often for new items!
In the past few weeks since writing to you about the CBER rescue and the mustangs at the feedlot, I’ve received countless forwards via email and the mustang forum for horses that are being sold at record low prices. Mustangs who’s owners haven’t had the time or the skill or desire to to train their horses and make them productive members of equine society are being sold for less than puppies at pet stores, or even given away for free.
Neglected feet can grow long enough to look like skis. Even this long, they can cause discomfort and lameness in horses.
A horse with a job is a valuable horse. They have a place in our world. Very few people will take a horse and allow it to live wild in their backyard, feeding it year after year and caring for it’s medical needs. You may recall Sunny’s hoof trim; because she was still too wild to handle, it took both the vet and farrier and $300 to get the job done. A horse is a pricey pet, and the cost of hay at an all time high this year. Many good riding horses are faced with a bleak winter with owners who haven’t got the funds to feed them. The prospects of a mustang who’s owner has neglected his training is even bleaker.
Which is why we’ve started Wild Horse Rehabilitation and Rescue. Hopefully there are enough folks out there who are compassionate enough to want to see at least one of these horses make it through the winter and find a good home.
Now…back to the soaps!
Three soaps need names
These are all sheep milk, so ewe’ll need to keep that in mind. Remember, we’ve got things such as Ewe Stink, Ewe Da Man (thanks to Paul), and Cool Ewe. That’s the theme for ewe to follow! The fragrances are Lavender (blue swirl), Cottage Rose (pink top) and Ginger Orange (brown.) If your name is chosen, ewe’ll win the soap! Winners will be named tomorrow. Good luck and have fun!
