I spend a wonderful (albeit HOT HOT HOT) day shooting horses (photographing that is) just on the West side of Pine Valley, in Guatay, California at Tir Na Nog . . . a horse sanctuary for neglected and abused horses.
Saturday the 22nd and Sunday (tomorrow) the 23rd the volunteer staff are hosting an OPEN HOUSE and ALL are invited to come out and ‘HUG A HORSE’, have light refreshments, and participate in a raffle. There are many first responders from the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, San Diego Fire and Rescue, The Border Patrol, and Volunteers.
The many volunteers present were so knowledgeable about every single one of their charges, especially a sweet little blonde gal (whose name I forget in my road to senility) but suffice it to say, for her age, she was one of the BEST ambassadors for the sanctuary, and extremely knowledgeable and polite to boot!
How can anyone look at these beautiful creatures and not fall head over heels and want to help preserve their lives in an environment where they will be forever cared for and loved??
