Yard sale continued

Hi everyone

As I reported on the North Shore Horse Rescue's Facebook page the yard sale went well.
Over the two weekends we raised over $3800.00. We could not have done that without all of you who came by and purchased stuff, donated money and items, and the Volunteers who worked their tails off to manned the sale and fed the horses behind the scenes.

We missed Sue our Volunteer Coordinator who was always a staple at this and other events. But she has moved off the island and supports us in other ways.
It seems that at every yard sale someone donates ladies hats. And somehow one of these hats finds it's way atop Sue's head. So this year we all donned hats in honor of Sue!

We are all one big happy family at the rescue. We always have a fun time at these events and during the chores we do on Nomal  regular days.

Sir is doing great! He is eating and gaining weight and is so interactive!
Dr. Wen gave him an examination and reported that he is doing good. I breathe a sigh of relief upon hearing that news.

Thanks for following Sir and I here on the Blog. If you have any questions or have something specific that you would like me to write about drop me a line

That's it for now!

Until Next Time!

This past weekend's YARD SALE

Hi all

Well the Yard sale went well considering the forecast for the weekend.
Saturday was a roller coaster as far as the decision to do it or cancel it.
Ultimately the decision was made to roll the dice and see what would happen.

It was the right decision! We were able to get 4-5 hours of sales in before the rain came. And we did well in that short timeframe.
I did a Facebook Live video with Elizabeth and couldn't find the stop button so it ran over. lol But it was still fun. Elizabeth missed her calling as a news reporter foir sure ;<)
We covered everything up just as the rain showers started and retired to the barn to bring the horses in, feed, etc.
We had fun joking and laughing as usual, What a great group of volunteers! I am proud to call them friends and to volunteer with them.

Sir was awesome. The center of attention in the front stall. He is so much fun to interact with.
He is spoiled to no end and its well deserved!

Sunday as you locals know was a complete wash out. But we resumed on Monday Columbus day. It started out slow, but then people came in droves. We did really good that day too.
We had to close down a little earlier than we wanted to but we were short handed and needed to get the evening feeding done. And people were still stopping!

My Wife Lynn and Grandson Jack came by and hung out for awhile. Jackie was feeding the horses apples and was so proud that he fed two big horses and the minis too! They truly made my day!

If the weather holds this weekend we will do it again.
Hope to see you there!

Sir on the mend

Hi all

I went to the barn yesterday and could not believe my eyes.
Sir was in the barn on cross ties with his butt facing me. I wasn't sure it was him at first.
His ribs were not as pronounced as they were and his hips were filling in. He was gaining weight!!!
It seems like the meds that Dr. Wen prescribed are working.

He has an awesome appetite and is alert and interactive. His coat feels good too. There is no longer an oily feel to it. All in all he looks good and seems to be on the mend.That of course makes me happy!
Thanks for all of your prayers and support!

If you are in the neighborhood this coming weekend, 10/8 &10/9, stop by the farm for our fund raising yard sale. There will be lots of new items as well as saddles and various tack items. Of course all proceeds go to the care of the rescued horses.

And don't forget about the Paint Night fund raising event that is coming up on October 12th at Joe's Garage and Grill in Riverhead.

The rescue depends on volunteers,donations, and fund raisers for it's survival.

Sir and I hope to see you there!
