We love these two have found friendship in each other....
Have you ever had one moment in time change your life forever? This is what happened to these two: TJ and River (photo left to right).
TJ spent his entire life an athlete, giving incredible long distance rides for his people. Until one day one swift kick to the leg from another horse- OVER! River spent his entire life loved by humans. Until one day, when his owner fell ill, he ended up at an auction where a kill buyer bought him. His loving life as he knew it- OVER!
When their life purposes were extinguished on those fateful days it left them feeling lost and alone. Their stories are different, yet, the feelings of fear are the same. And like many people, these two are still very tied to those feelings. Much of what they experience today is still being put through the same resonance of fear even though their environment has changed.
There is a part of us that want to fix them, put the bandaids on, cover up the pain, make them all better. Then we take a step back and look at the entire picture and see they already are perfect. Following this simple Truth allows them to just Be. Just Be who they are right here, right now. We love and honor them. And this is where their sweet, quirky friendship began here at The Farm Way.
We are proud to be their Sanctuary.
We love you, TJ and Riv!!!!
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.
