National Day of the Horse #NationalDayoftheHorse


This coming Thursday, December 13th is National Day of the Horse Day.
It's a good opportunity to help North Shore Horse Rescue & Sanctuary in our efforts to rescue and care for unwanted, abused, and in some cases abandoned horses.

As some of you know the rescue's first benefactor was Phoenix, a wild mustang.
She has lived at the rescue for 16 years now. Until last year she was of course standoffish when it came to interacting with humans. Through the many hours and days of patient bonding by one of our volunteers and her sponsor, Maril, she has allowed her to get up close to her and touch her.

And it is not only the wild horses that are affected.
Every year thousands of domesticated horses are sent to slaughter.

If a horse is deemed to have outlived it's usefulness it will most likely wind up in a kill pen. Thrown in with other frightened and cast-away horses where their ultimate destination is inhumane slaughter and to be sold as meat for consumption in some foreign countries.

We cannot save them all, but for the ones that we have saved and will save, we need to ensure that we provide them with the best life possible.
Winter is just about upon us and North Shore Horse Rescue & Sanctuary needs our help.
Won't you donate today in honor of National Day of the Horse?  Your contribution will help us to buy Hay and feed, provide Veterinary care, just to name a couple.

Please click the the links above to be taken to the website where you will find various ways to contribute. All donations are tax deductible.

I hope that you will join me in contributing in someway. Maybe a small donation in the memory of Sir. 🐎😊


Thanks for reading and please share this with your Social Media contacts.

I remain:

Sir's Human!

2018 Annual Appeal

Happy holidays loyal friends and supporters.
We wholeheartedly appreciate all you’ve given to our organization this past year.

This year’s annual appeal dollars will help us care for and re-home our latest rescue effort. We are looking to raise $3,500.00 for Meadow and Confetti who lost their longtime home. Their guardians, an elderly man and woman from Long Island could no longer keep them. Their owner is dying and will not pass on without knowing his horses, (in many ways) his children would not end up at auction.
That is when North Shore Horse Rescue and Sanctuary received a call for help and stepped in to ensure that Meadow a quarter horse mare, and Confetti a miniature Appaloosa gelding were in a trustworthy place.
They are adjusting to their new way of life with us.

Your donation will help to sustain all aftercare needs, including feed hay, bedding, supplements and any unforeseen veterinary care for this pair. Please know that past contributions aided the rescue of 42 horses over the years. As you might be aware of our Equine therapy program with Heart2Heart is paving the way as a credible mental health alternative. Our herd of rescues has become the most unusual compassionate therapists, in the most unexpected ways. A little-known fact is that horses have an incredible aptitude towards humans improving their mood and well-being.

As 2018 comes to a close, the Board of Directors, staff of mighty volunteers and our herd send whinnies, neighs and the light of the season thanking you for your caring generosity. We could not do this work without your support.

Remember, no donation is too small and all donations are tax deductible.

Donate at our website:, FaceBook Go Fund Me Campaign and Twitter.

Heart felt thanks!

I'm back!

Hi all

After a long hiatus I am back. I was having issues with the domain name and finally fixed it last night.
Since Sir has passed on I haven't been out to the Rescue too often. It just seems surreal to me going there and not having him there to interact with. But the rescue and the horses there still are close to my heart!
But in all fairness I have accomplished so much here at home. I even built a deck that has a roof for my wife. 😉

I still serve on the Board and do what I can to assist with the website and social media.
I still haven't figured out what this Blog will be about or become, but I feel an obligation to keep it going in honor of Sir. Without his brief time in my life this Blog wouldn't exist.
So if you have any ideas or suggestions let me know by either commenting here or emailing me at

I will definitely be using this space to announce events at the rescue and other fund raising initiatives.

I hope that I didn't lose too many of you, and I can't blame anyone who I have.

So please send me suggestions on what I might concentrate on here.


And always; I remain Sir's Human!
