Welcome to Project Spirit
We have DYNAMITE horses!
Our main Computer bit the bullet and we've been unable to do updates.
Just bought a new computer so we will be doing updates shortly.
Melanie is a liver chestnut gaited racking mare, broke and ready to go, she crosses water, bridges etc without slowing down, has been ridden on hunting camps in Idaho on the Snake River and is a people friendly mare. Comes running everytime I step out of the door. UTD on dental, worming and shots etc. One I would love to keep here if I didn't already have too many.
Kelly is a 2 yr old bay Quarter horse filly. She is sweet, friendly and very gentle natured. We rescued her as a baby and have worked with her a great deal. She ties, bathes, trailers, etc etc etc and is now ready for saddle training and a life with the right person. Kelly is very special to me, so you had better bring really good credentials to look at this one. I will be the Mother-in-law from hell...thats a promise.
We are in dire need of panels or a 60 ft round pen. We had one, but the girls at the shelter had so many horses in last year they needed panels for holding pens. They borrowed mine and won't give it back. How rude is that? But I love them all so they will get away with it just this once.
I was lunging and training with a long line, then Auggie came. The 1650lb Clydesdale cross thug with the bulldozer attitude...and he yanked me off my feet and I found out what it felt like to fly...awesome. Landing... not so hot, but flying is fun. I had better not try him again until I get my training pen back, so if you have anyway you can help us get one again, I would give up my wings and go back to ground working my rescues. Donations have dropped and we are having a tough time keeping up with vet bills and hay, so buying one is not in the cards right now. If you have panels you could donate for a nice tax write off, we would be eternally grateful and I could stay grounded.
Two Mares were released to P.S. due to a death in the family.
The bay mare had a major hernia that was way too expensive to fix, her intestines were being held by skin only so her previous owner and Project Spirit agreed on euthanasia to prevent further suffering. Such a shame, she was a very beautiful mare.
Pepper is a very lovely mare, 20-21 yrs old and super trained. We had her teeth and feet done, wormed and ready to go to her forever home. She is about 15 hands and will follow you like a puppy, she has amazing manners and respect. Please contact us if you would like this lovely mare as your forever friend.
This is a sad story that turned out so well thanks to a kind neighbor. These lovely mares were left to starve on the mountain, unwanted. A kind lady took them in and called us. We picked them up, had their dreadful teeth fixed, feet trimmed, wormed and adopted all in less than 2 weeks. AND they went together to a ranch home where they will live until they die. I danced a jig for these two...so close to hell, then dropped in heaven. WooHoo, made my Christmas for sure.
So many people to thank for this rescue, you know who you are and I am forever grateful.
Thanks to Werner at Wrinkledog Inc. we now have a functional Web Site that we can keep current and full of new information. The donation page works so if you would like please check it out we would be sooo grateful. All the best from the Project Spirit Team, and Happy New Year.
These pictures are very distressing, but it was the spirit of this mare that made us decide to build the stable named after her. She was frozen to the ground, and still alive when these pictures were taken. We had the vet shoot her where she lay. This mare still haunts me, and the anger stayed with me for a long time. Wise words from my friend and helper Linda B. helped me change it into a positive force, to do better next time, and try to see this never happened again. We decided to move forward and build this little stable in her memory.
