Gotcha Day

Today is the 1 year anniversary of Sable, Ruby and Cookie’s Gotcha Day. That is, the day they came Home. It’s a term typically used in adoptions, and has been picked up by animal rescues as well.

For me, it’s a celebration of the day they made it here, to the Farm. Yes, we met and paid for The Paints much earlier…and we met and fell in love with Sable on Nov. 1st…but from the time we put the money down, to the time they arrived on the property, any number of things could have happened to change the outcome. For nearly a month, we were on pins and needles, waiting, waiting, waiting, for the call to say the Girls were on their way. To have a day that we knew they were coming. It was exciting, it was scary, it was worrisome…but, in the end, it all worked out. The Girls came home, and now they are in their Forever Home.

Mere minutes after getting off the trailer...released into their new pasture.

Every horse should have the chance to be loved by a little girl.

  1. Even though I personally find horses intimidating and a little scary the love you have for yours is joyously heartwarming and makes me like them as well (from a distance)
