dixie’s first days…when she was quiet and sweet…(and small)…. (or…the calm before the storm…)



a couple of months later…( or…dixie getting the hang of self actualization and the freedom to do her very own thing…the wild thing!)



dixie last weekend (or…sigh…the re-birth of a new saints bossy queen…she is so beautiful..AND full of herself!)

(i was right mo…she has gotten bigger…with her head finally up, and being so puffed up and full of confidence in herself… she stands way taller than i do now…she makes me feel small!)

thank god she didn’t ended up going to slaughter…what a waste of a beautiful and vibrant life that would have been.

    BRAVO, Carol, once again you’ve taken an injured spirit and with great medical care, kindness, LOVE, affection and companionship of critters and humans SAINTS Rescue has given Dixie “WINGS” so her spirit can once again soar. Look out Ellie Mae there’s a new Princess in town. We love you Dixie. One of the things I love the best about being a weekend warrior is that you can feel happiness and contentment in the animals, regardless of their medical condition or their past history and you leave the grounds feeling contentment and happiness in your own life.

    That’s great to see such a wonderful change. She looks like a really happy horse now.

    hey has anyone else been on her riding. maybe next week if you like Stef can come out again and give her a go in the sunshine and not the pouring rain like the poor girls (dixies) first time…

    What an incredibly beautiful horse! She doesn’t look at all like the same horse as when she came to SAINTS – she’s beautiful, confident, and proud – you can just see it in the pictures! And her coat is AMAZING! Well done, as always! I’m cheering for Dixie and praying for Pops – they’re both EXACTLY where they need to be at this juncture in their lives.

    that would be great cheryl if stef is not busy…dixie needs something challenging to do besides bossing everyone (except pops) around….being the boss is just too easy for her!

  • Sue says

    THAT… is beautiful!
    Wonderful job. Just doing what you do and look at the results. Awesome!!! 🙂 You all have the patience of a Saint. Allowing these animals the time, space & loving patience to remember how to just…be.
    Thank you for all that you do!

  • Sheila,Would you please use some of the above photo’s of Dixie (horse) for my 5″x5″ card Dixie would be the epitome of the quote…..Please just ignore the request that I wrote upon my note enclosed with the cheque (posted today)…unless someone else has picked her then ignore this request….Thank you…Cathie K
