First off, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit my site.
I have been around horses since I was very young and have ridden for most of my life. I have always had a love for animals and this carried over into my adult life. I own three wonderful horses, 2 of which I have rescued from slaughter (see below for their individual stories), 2 cats and 2 dogs (that I have rescued).
I created Barn Nanny because as a horse owner I have experienced the need to have a back up that is caring and knowledgeable. Also, have friends that expressed needs as animal owners. These instances created a moment of pause for me and I figured that if my friends and I were experiencing these circumstances, I am sure other animal owners were also.
Please feel free to email me with any questions that you may have.
Thank you and Happy Riding!
Just a bit about my hooved Fur Babies
Angel is my 16 yr old bay Morab mare that was a barrel racer in her past life before I purchased her May 2014. She's a very sweet, intelligent girl that keeps me on my toes! She has settled in quite nicely & in the past she has helped young people learn lessons in providing basic care & basic riding.
I realized quickly that she wasn't terribly happy being by herself and along came Beau...
Beau is a 16 hand, 16 yr old flea bitten Percheron gelding that I purchased sight unseen off a Facebook rescue page. This poor boy was put through 2 slaughter auctions & had a fast approaching timeline to go back to the slaughter lot. His photo captured my heart & although it has been a challenging road with trust, health & lameness issues, I wouldn't change a thing. This boy is my jokester, is amazingly smart, sensitive & now that I have work through his trust issues, he is a very sweet & loving boy!
On October 2016 Samson (18 hand 10 yr old Percheron gelding) stole my heart when I was at an auction to pick up another horse that ended up being terribly lame. I had to choose another horse or forfeit the money that I paid. One look at Samson and I was hooked! He was an owner surrender that arrived to the auction the day prior and was scheduled to be auctioned mid week. There was no way I was going to let him experience that! He barely fit in the horse trailer and made the 8 hr trip home like a champ with no issues at all! He is a gentle giant with a mind of his own. We are still getting to know each other and build the trust/bond. But I look forward to the lessons that this boy has in store for me!
I have learned so much from these fur babies! It's been quite a journey!
