Birthday post, part 2.

If you guessed Jack, you are correct!

Today is Jack’s 21st birthday! He and his mini companions had a little soirée in the paddock today, complete with party hats and goodies!

Jack is the anchor for the Mobile Minis crew, visiting schools in Loudoun County, bringing horse powered learning to students. Jack is also a rock star at the farm in his work with children and adults.

We are so very grateful Jack is happy and healthy and we wish him many, many more happy birthdays!

Part 2: spending some time with Iggy in nature.

What do you see?

04/05/2020

With so much stress in our day to day lives, it’s so important to find 2 or 3 minutes each day to decompress a little.

We hope you enjoy these few minutes with Iggy in nature, as she relaxes on a lovely spring day. Turn the volume up and try to identify how many sounds of nature you hear.

We are full of gratitude for After the Finish Line and their extremely generous support of 2 of our wonderful Thoroughbred therapy horses, T R's Peanut (aka "Reeses") and Cat Player (aka "Foster")!!! They have generously granted funds to help support the important -- and costly -- medical and health care each horse receives on a regular basis. THANK YOU FROM ALL OF US AT PH!!! 🐴❤️🐴

April Monthly Grant #4
Project Horse, Inc.

After the Finish Line awarded a grant in the amount of $2,000 to Project Horse for routine and advanced medical care for Cat Player and T R’s Peanut. For Cat Player, this includes vaccines, sheath cleaning, dental, eye exam and eye ointment, chiropractic visits, cold laser treatment for his osteoarthritis, a UV fly mask and cartilage treatments. T R's Peanut will receive vaccines, yearly dental, eye exam and eye ointment, Cushings medication, Osteoarthritis medication, a UV fly mask, supplements, and joint injections. The organization is vigilant about daily wellness checks to ensure they are managing their conditions properly.

Project Horse is non-profit organization in Virginia that offers Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) services for children, teens and adults. They focus on interactions with horses that invoke emotional, behavioral, sensory, and cognitive learning. Most of their therapy herd consists of rescue horses, with several Thoroughbred horses. All of their programs are non-riding which means no horse has to be able to be ridden. This modality was established in honor of our foundation horse, T R’s Peanut.

I’m very proud of our small team and their creative, can-do attitude!!! We quickly reinvented Project Horse so we could continue supporting our clients, and in a way that is SAFE for everyone! We’ve shifted all sessions to a Virtual+ format… the PLUS = HORSES !

Today we held our first virtual equine-assisted therapy sessions, and they were a success!! B and Iggy were our equine stars, with Foster and Malachi looking on curiously. A handful of people made today happen, and a heartfelt thanks goes out to: Maria Kimble, Leslie Roberts, Jeff Kimble, Ellina S., Andrew Woessner, Darcy Woessner.

Things are a little stressful these days. Reeses wants to check in and ask how everyone is doing. She and the rest of the herd all watch out for each other, and suggests that we should do the same. Check in with your neighbors, friends, families, co-workers. Remember to be kind to one another and look out for each other. #stressfreeliving #takecareofyourself #takecareofeachother #goawaycoronavirus #projecthorse #loudouncountyva #horses
