April has been an exciting month for horses at Lifetime Equine Refuge and our horses are feeling the love!
These two beauties arrived last month and have been able to find tranquility on a very special private ranch, thanks to Randal. Randal is also an experienced horseman and he was quick to offer his open corrals the moment he learned about their need. Randal Kleiser has been an internationally known film director since the release of his first feature, Grease, the most successful movie musical ever made. Other features include The Blue Lagoon, Summer Lovers, Honey I Blew Up the Kids and White Fang.
We would also like to thank John R Murrell for his generous donation which made it possible for us to pull Carmel to safety. Special thanks to Saving Horses Inc and the Fans of Barbaro for the funds needed to pull Giselle to safety and for their support toward feed for a month.
Carmel, an off track thoroughbred actually took 1st place in her last race, winning over $30,000 and Giselle never had a chance to start. WFLF Lifetime Equine Refuge has taken in these two Thoroughbreds and we will be providing them with the care and time they need to fully recuperate and transition. Donations are needed for Giselle and Carmel's ongoing feed, vaccines and farrier. Your gifts are greatly appreciated.
Lifetime Equine Refuge would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the many supporters who helped us achieve the successful long term placement for three rescued Mustangs, Shelby, Smudge and Gypsy. We are honored to announce that WFLF LERR Board Member, Michael Blake (Dances With Wolves) has graciously become the new long term care provider for these three lucky Mustangs. They arrived earlier this month at Michael's private ranch in Arizona.
Whether it was luck or meant to be, these three Mustangs eventually wound up back together again. WFLF Lifetime Equine Refuge has taken them in and Michael Blake has accepted them as part of his family.
Through the generosity of Michael Blake; Shelby, Gypsy and Smudge will now be able to live out the rest of her lives together in peace. Michael has a lifetime of experience with both wild and domestic horses. He is dedicated to their well being and has created a special sanctuary for them to call home. To learn more about Michael's rich and colorful background with wild horses, read his recent memoir, "Twelve, the King".
This has been a collaborative effort and we are thankful for the assistance of Saving Horses Inc who raised the funds for the Professional Transport services. We also extend our sincere appreciation to the Fans of Barbaro for their generous support.
Thank you all for your continued support for the horses. Please visit our website to learn more.
