2/28/04 - We were deeply moved today when Christian & Sierra H. gave us a laminated bookmarker and picture. Both of these are their personal creations. Christian created the bookmark in his art class at school where he had it laminated for durability. And Sierra put the finishing touches on her artwork today as we sat at the picnic table, eating donuts, and watching horses frolic as they enjoyed a day of sunshine after all the recent rains.

Thank you so much for thinking of us Christian & Sierra!!

5/16/2003 - Children from the school program have a hands on experience on how to worm horses!! Although TIER Youth Coordinator Melissa gave detailed instructions and help, it seems that Grace did most of the supervising!! HA!

 

My daughter's name is Annie. She's now the proud owner of a rescued
12-year old CMK Arabian mare, and they are the reigning Junior State
Champions at CSHA Trail Trials. And completely self-taught. Pretty good
for a "wild child" that could not even be ridden at the time we brought her home.

Thanks Lucy!

Local middle school children show support and caring for the rescue horses of TIER. Regardless of the age, ability or appearance of these wonderful horses, the children came out to help groom, bathe, and just love up on them. During the summer, fun was mixed with education and kids got a chance to see what a marvelous animal can come from of a horse that, at one time, had a very uncertain future. Grace, Jake, Dobbin and Pearl quickly became favorites because of their wonderful temperament and great personalities! Watching the special connection of kids and horses was just super.

Believe it or not, these kids are learning about horse anatomy! Part of the summer program included a fun game to help remember different parts of a horse. Of course, we turned the ever patient Grace and Jake into our Painted Ponies! By following written directions, these kids "competed" to show who knew their horse parts the best! There were hand-prints on necks, bows and braids, sponge painted arrows, moons and stars, stripes on legs and even a butterfly on the side! Is that glitter on Grace's knees? Hey, doesn't purple look great on a white horse?

Everyone did wonderful and enjoyed the "prize" of chips and soda after washing off the stars of the day. Jake and Grace got to enjoy extra hugs, treats and a good roll in the dirt!

Part of the terrific group of kids that spent a summer learning that one person's trash is definitely another person's treasure! Grace, a favorite of all, gave a couple rides around the yard and made a lasting impression on these young people with her giving nature.

Bath time for Dobbin and Jake! These fabulous teenagers came out do a beauty treatment for some super special horses. Don't they look great?!?


Riverside Garden School Grade 4

These students from Riverside Garden School got together to learn a little about some horses that needed help. They took on extra chores and dug into piggy banks to be able to donate what change they could in the hopes that it would help a little. Parents and children alike showed interest by asking questions and learned how one person's trash can become another person's treasure form the success stories on the web site. Donation jars were kept in classes for a few weeks but hopefully the perspectives on horses were changed forever.
