It finally happened!

 Hello everyone

Things are moving along at the Marlokai Rescue. Riding lesson bookings are increasing, a few events are taking place online, and fundraising efforts are showing results.

We are still in need of dedicated volunteers, so if you are interested you can reach out to me at There is always so much that needs to be done on the farm and we could use as many hands as are available.

So yesterday I spent the day at the farm doing chores with Patrick Stultz, he is my second son in so many ways. It was nice to have the help and his knowledge of horses is an added benefit.
We got so much done and the weather was awesome! A cool, crisp September day. Even the horses were enjoying it.

I began the day as I usually do by saying hello to Thor in his stall. I haltered him up and took him to his paddock, and let him graze a little along the way. I led him into his paddock and gave him an apple, which he gobbled up piece by piece. 

As i worked my chores throughout the day he kept a watchful eye on me LOL 
And he would call out to me, (whinny),  and pace the paddock fence.
He just makes me smile. 😊🐴

At the end of the day  I was exhausted and had hurt my foot so I was ready to get home. But before I left I wanted to spend some more time with Thor. 
So I haltered him and took him out of the paddock to graze. 
Aside from grooming him this is when I feel closest to him. It was the same way with Sir. Do any of you feel the same? Or is it just me?n 

 I brought him back to his paddock and started to take off his halter. And then it happened. That special moment when you connect with an animal. Or another being for that matter.
I untied his rope halter, expecting him to turn away from me and head over to the hay bag or to the water trough. But, he stayed. Hovered over me, rubbing his head on my shoulder, pushing his nose into me hand. Putting his chin on my shoulder, He was moving his lips on my hand and rubbing his nose on my hands as well. When I stroked/petted his neck he rested his head on me. When I stopped he rubbed my hand again with his nose and lips. 

I don't know how to explain it. Nor do I want to. All I know is that it felt special. It felt like we bonded. The connection was made, cemented. 
And I couldn't be happier! 

Sponsor a horse, or any rescue! They need the love and caring that we can give to them! 

And we need it to! 

Until next time.....

September 5th - Another great day at the rescue with Thor!

 Hi all

Wow! Can you believe that it's already September??!!!??? I guess dealing with COVID-19 moved the summer along so quickly for me. 
I have to admit that today was such a beautiful day. Temperature in the mid to high 70's and low humidity made doing chores so much easier. Even the horses were enjoying the weather.

I had Thor out to graze for a bit this morning. 
It's heartwarming that when he sees me round the corner of the barn he starts whinnying. I think that it's awesome that we are forming a bond so quickly. 
I put him back in his paddock and the work began. 
Lots to do which goes without saying. But it would be nice if there was more volunteers. 
But we make do with who we have when we have them. They are all dedicated hard working individuals for sure!
If you know of anyone who would like to volunteer have them call 631-689-1600 and follow the prompts for more information. You or they can also leave a message on the Facebook page.  You can find it by clicking here →Marlokai Equine & Animal Rescue Facebook Page. Please keep in mind that there are other Volunteer opportunities besides working with Horses. (If you are leary of getting close to one) 

I accomplished a lot today, and managed to groom Thor as well! He looked great afterwards and this picture that my friend Pete Casano took of us shows how shiny his coat was!

There are many horses at the rescue that are available for adoption and or sponsorship. Sponsoring is a nice way to support a horse without undertaking the expense of actually owning it.  
There are many ways that you can sponsor. Even pledging to buy a bag of grain, a bale or two of hay per month for that horse. Or you can up your game and make a monthly monetary donation towards  sponsoring the horse, If you live close enough you can visit the farm and the horse that you are sponsoring and spend some time with him or her. 
Again, if you are interested visit the website, Facebook or call the rescue at 631-689-1600. Or leave me a comment here and I will get the information to you. 

And if you want to, you can visit the Patreon page and become a Patron. Go To Patreon

Well that is it for now. I need to get horizontal and relax 😉

So please feel free to comment or ask questions. 

Until next time.......
