Did you know the energy of the Iris flower is like a wonderful detox, cleansing your system of old emotions and negativity? You’ll feel great just being near them. Your entire body will be recharged and you will beam with vitality. And if you ask Iris, she’ll tell you this describes her to a T. Come spend a day with Iris and The Irises and be reguvinated. And nudged, maybe a little muddied up, or possibly knocked over ;)
We do lovingly call her “the wrecking ball” because she has the perfect ability to sense when we need an extra nudge to knock us right back into our hearts AND, of course, clear out anything that may be in her way! Yet, she is as sweet and loving as she was when she fit in the palm of our hands.
We understand she was born into this world as a farm pig with a very different fate (her crossbreed is considered the “Kobe” of pork). But things can change. And we are grateful they did!!!!
We are honored to be her sanctuary.
We LOVE you, Iris.
In the fall of 2011, Mike and I moved to a small farm in Central Illinois where we immediately found ourselves rescuing horses. The rescue was not part of our original plan, but we felt the calling while doing a search for a pair of ponies we did plan on caring for on the farm. Since childhood, my entire extended family and I have been horse owners. Mike and I wanted to continue this tradition. Upon searching the internet for a pair of ponies, we were overwhelmed with the number of horses that needed a rescue and/or a home.
