SPONSOR A HORSE
Sponsoring a horse is an amazing way to help our ministry if you have the limited time or you are many miles away. With your sponsorship we can continue working to help many in their time of healing. With your sponsorship you will receive monthly updates of the horse you've chosen and their story.
"While your hoof prints may have faded, your imprint on our hearts will never disappear."
We dreamed of owning a Khemosabi foal but we didn't think it was possible since our financial resources could not support such a venture. Isn't it amazing how God steps in and totally rearranges your well thought out plans? Miraculously, I found a breeding to Khemosabi that it was being raffled off. I knew it would be difficult to get the raffle but with my last bit of hope I wrote on the ticket "Do dreams really come true". To our surprise we won the raffle. The only problem was that Khemosabi was getting older and our mare would have to go to his farm in California for the breeding. I was so disappointed. The added expense of transporting our mare to and from California, boarding her there for 90 days to allow her time to settle, plus the vet expenses would add up to more than we could manage. Our dream started to fade as quickly as it came. To my surprise, when I told my husband, Robert, about these new complications, he thought we should "Go for it."
Fortunately, our mare, Dawn, was in foal with the first breeding. The whole adventure went off without a glitch. We were even ale to go see Khemosabi as a family and had private time with him for an incredible visit. Dawn came home and delivered her son, Beracah. He was the first baby born on our farm on February 12, 1995. We chose the name "Beracah" because it means blessing, and that is exactly what he was to our family and all the visitors that came to see him. In all of our years of working with horses, I have never seen a stallion so gentle. If someone came out to see horses but had fear about interacting with them, Beracah was the first one we let them meet. He seemed to be sensitive to the situation and was able to calm their fears.
Beracah passed away unexpectedly at 20 years of age on November 11, 2015. His absence has left a huge hole but we keep him alive in our hearts with all of the precious memories. We have his babies that have grown up here on this farm to remind of him as well. What a blessing to have had an incredible stallion like him!
