Horse Buns and Sweet Feed
 By Winniefield Park   •   20th Mar 2018   •   1,127 views   •   0 comments
So many news stories appear on feeds that just leave you shaking your head. Thieves, abusers and bad choices deserve large helpings of fresh horse buns. But, there are stories that help renew your faith that not everything is awful. Sweet feed to those good people that just go on being good.

Pony Thief
Rockstar, a therapy Pony from childrens home in NC - www.heraldsun.com

Borrowed or Stolen?
Horse buns to the thieves who took three therapy ponies from a childrenís home in North Carolina. Staff discovered the empty ponies stalls on Saturday and then mysteriously, the ponies reappeared on Monday. Did the thieves only want a pony for the weekend? Or did they realize with the amount of media coverage that they were better off returning the ponies before they were found out and charged with the crime?

Animal Rescue
Director of Animal Shelter in Pittsburg - www.post-gazette.com

Who Can You Trust?
Most of us wonder how itís possible to neglect something as large as a horse, but it happens all the time. And we expect those who are involved with animal rescue to be held to a little higher standard. But, thatís not the case with a former director of an animal shelter in Pittsburg. The ousted head of the Western PA Humane Society has been charged with failing to provide adequate food, water and shelter to horses in her possession. Also charged is the owner of the property where the horses were kept.



Saddle, No Service
Well, Iím not sure whether to hand horse buns to the barista of the Starbucks who denied service to a teen on horseback recently, or a handful of sweet feed to the district manager who extended an invitation to return. The girl wanted to celebrate her birthday by going through the Starbucks drive-thru. Evidently, the barista had no idea how to handle the situation. Apparently the manager suggested if there were any special requests you want to make of Starbucks, to contact them ahead of time. Fair enough. That warrants some sweet feed.



Isnít that RUI?
Riding through a Starbucks drive-thru for your birthday is innocent enough. But if you ride your horse down a freeway, thatís just dumb. So loads of soft, squishy horse buns to the guy who did just that, endangering himself, his horse, the California Highway Patrol officer who issued him a ticket for DUI, and the other people driving on the freeway the right way - in cars, vans and trucks.

Go Duke!
Buckets of sweet feed to the 96 year old Prince Philip. He seems to be enjoying his retirement from public life. Recently, he was seen driving a horse and carriage through the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Less Protection for Horses and Other Wildlife
Boooo! Congress is moving closer to finalizing the US governmentís spending bill and the cost cutting measures include reopening horse slaughter plants, and other rules that protect endangered and hunted wildlife. The bill has an amendment to allow the BLM to slaughter thousands of healthy wild horses and burros roaming public lands. In the US, let your congressman know which side of the issue you are on.
