Last September over Labor Day weekend 2008, we lost our mare, Starr,
to a terrible accident. We didn't know if we wanted to get another horse right away but our older mare, Molly, was
very lonesome. So one day I went on the internet to find rescued horses and found Joanie and her crew at the Horse Protection
Society of NC. We called and decided to take a trip from Zebulon, NC to China Grove and look at the horses in early
October of '08.
Well to make a long story short, we found Silver Cloud and fell in love. He was what
we were looking for. What a character he was and still is! Our daughter-in-law had come with us and found Jasmine.
We visited a couple of more times and on November 22, 2008 both Silver Cloud and Jasmine came home with
us. Jasmine and our old girl, Molly, took to each other like they had always been together. They were as thick
as theives. Silver Cloud, being the gelding, acted as their protector like a main stallion.
and Bellyboy, as we have nicknamed Silver Cloud, are great under saddle and love going on trails. Everyone of our neighbors
cannot believe we got such great horses by "adoption".
As you can see, Silver Cloud and Jasmine really
seem to love their new homes.
