Candy’s Shelter Challenge Post

mon2

Good Morning !!!! And a Happy Labor Day to YOU !!!! May yours be bright and happy !!! And full of nums … I hope I’m gettin nums …. Today let’s vote for Candy !! Candy was a prize winning jumper. She did all kinds of contests. When she was 12 she had a terrible accident trying to do a jump that was just too big for her. She fell and was very badly injured. Her owner left with the ribbons she’d won …. but left Candy behind. After awhile the people who owned the pasture Candy was at said we’re gonna sell this horse to the market – not a nice place – cus nobody is paying her rent. And so Candy came to live at Rikki’s. It was another couple years before she was walking right. Now she can run and play and enjoys life. She’ll never be able to jump and she needs some special care and meds twice a day. And she’ll have love and friends and a big green pasture for all the rest of her days. Please vote Rikkis Refuge, VA, USA in the Shelter Challenge today … and every day !! Thank you, Opie
