When I arrived at the Rescue one morning, one of the sweetest faces that I had ever seen greeted me. I rushed into the barn ask why that horse was here? Was it abuse? Was it medical? Just what WAS her deal? Come to find out, she was there because of love. That's right! John and Robin had brought Precious (and Samson) back to the farm for a short stay while they found a new place to live that could accommodate the latest additions to their family. They knew that there, they would receive the best care and love that any four legged friend could want. I fell in love with Precious before I was even out of the car. During their stay, I was able to improve my horsemanship skills enough that Tony allowed me to take Precious out on the town for a ride. It was one of the best nights that I had had in quite a while. Since Precious didn't know that she was a horse, she found it difficult to restrain herself from greeting any and all folks who were sitting on their porches. (Yes, she even took a step to go the porch herself!) Tony said that I was having trouble controlling the horse. I say….how do you keep a 1500 lb baby from wanting to say hello, up close and personally! The kids on the street gravitated to her even though she was the biggest horse in the bunch. She fascinated everyone not only by her size but also mostly by her long lashed beautiful eyes.
