How We Came To Be...
We were never looking for
horses. NEVER!!! Then we met Willie. I used to have horses and I never saw one get to this point. I was not familiar
with horse rescues, I didn't even know there was a need for this. All people don't love horses. Some people just see them
for the work they do, the ribbons they win or the money they earn. When they don't fulfill these needs, they are sometimes abandoned
to their own devices to fend for themselves.
I met Willie when his owner took him out of the pasture to meet us, we connected
immediately. Willie could steal your heart with his big brown eyes. He seemed to sense that we were his refuge, even before
we knew it. I didn't think he'd make it much longer, so I decided to make his final days more bearable. Hey, we can feed him, care
for him and love him. I had a feeling that if he did make it, I was going to be seeing him a lot more than I had planned. Did I mention
that I DID NOT WANT HORSES!!!
Well, my husband Greg soon had him adopted, moved to a better facility and was mucking and feeding
to pay his board. Willie began to blossom under his care. Every day you could see his eyes beginning to clear, he started putting
weight back on and his attitude got even brighter. He truly loved Greg and Greg him. And so our adventure of rescuing horses
Finding a buddy for Willie was easy!
Enter Quinn......love at first sight!!!
A broodmare for a time it
for her to settle in but she's at home now!
Our third rescue was Fight Talk....
a thoroughbred!! Spunky
and sweet. He is truly irresistible!!
Our family grew and Bit O'Luck Rescue was born. We just love helping these forgotten equines,
but, there's something about them. Even if you're in the worst mood, just being around them can brighten it. They show you a lot about
yourself. Good or bad!!! And they love you in spite of yourself.
