    They say to love a horse… it must be in your blood
    Then my blood gallops, jumps and bucks, every time I see her face
    Or when she leans on me to steal a hug
    Her smell sends me to sleep
    I would walk through fire for her and see no danger
    Just rainbows and pretty things
    For every time I walk with her, I am her shadow
    She leads me strong and bold
    For hours on end, she is my life
    The one that gives me Passion
    The one, that I was waiting for…

    Please remember there is equines out there suffering in silence. Hoping someone will save them…
    Please contact your local rescue or AHAR
    We will do our best to help
    Good night from AHAR, Passion and I xx

    The x ray showed three fractures. The pain she must have been in and for how long. Its an old break and has not been treated so now she must loose her leg. There is nothing he can do to save it. Poor old girl, after all the money she made with her pups. But Gail has booked her and after she recovers she will find her the perfect home. This one broke Gails heart. After all she suffered and all the pain she was in, but she never stopped wagging her tail.

    We had soooo much fun in Kerry dog pound today. We really do have the nicest dog wardens. Gail brought them ten little cakes. One from each of the ten dogs we saved.

    Gail worked so hard today too. She wouldn't even stop for a break, she just grabbed a cup of coffee out the window and off she went again. I love having Gail to help, you have no idea what its like to have another pro here. She just works away like its her own rescue. I will be soooo sad saying goodbye tomorrow. If feels like ive had a holiday with her help.

    Amazing powerful speech by Philip Wollen…. that everyone in the World should take a few minutes to watch the video below or read here.

    Water is the new oil. Nations will soon be going to war for it.
    Underground aquifers that took millions of years to fill are running dry.
    It takes 50,000 litres of water to produce one kilo of beef.
    1 billion people today are hungry. 20 million people will die from malnutrition. Cutting meat by only 10% will feed 100 million people. Eliminating meat will end starvation forever.

    If everyone ate a Western diet, we would need 2 Planet Earths to feed them. We only have one. And she is dying.
    Greenhouse gas from livestock is 50% more than transport . . . . . planes, trains, trucks, cars, and ships.
    Poor countries sell their grain to the West while their own children starve in their arms. And we feed it to livestock. So we can eat a steak? Am I the only one who sees this as a crime? Every morsel of meat we eat is slapping the tear-stained face of a starving child. When I look into her eyes, should I be silent?
    The earth can produce enough for everyone’s need. But not enough for everyone’s greed.

    Animal Rights is now the greatest Social Justice issue since the abolition of slavery.
    There are over 600 million vegetarians in the world.
    That is bigger than the US, England, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Canada, Australia combined! If we were one nation we would be bigger than the 27 countries in the European Union!!
    Despite this massive footprint, we are still drowned out by the raucous huntin’, shootin’, killin’ cartels who believe that violence is the answer – when it shouldn’t even be a question.
    Meat is a killing industry – animals, us and our economies.
    Medicare has already bankrupted the US. They will need $8 trillion invested in Treasury bills just to pay the interest. It has precisely zero!!
    They could shut every school, army, navy, air force, and Marines, the FBI and CIA – and they still won’t be able to pay for it.

    George Bush was wrong. The Axis of Evil doesn’t run through Iraq, or Iran or North Korea. It runs through our dining tables. Weapons of Mass Destruction are our knives and forks.

    Cornell and Harvard says that the optimum amount of meat for a healthy diet is precisely ZERO.

    Cutting out meat completely:
    This is the Swiss Army Knife of the future – it solves our environmental, water, health problems and ends cruelty forever. And farmers are the ones with the most to gain. Farming won’t end. It would boom. Only the product line would change. Farmers would make so much money they wouldn’t even bother counting it.
    Governments will love us. New industries would emerge and flourish. Health insurance premiums would plummet. Hospital waiting lists would disappear.
    Meat is like 1 and 2 cent coins. It costs more to make than it is worth.

    Meat is the new asbestos – more murderous than tobacco.
    CO2, Methane, and Nitrous Oxide from the livestock industry are killing our oceans with acidic, hypoxic Dead Zones.
    90% of small fish are ground into pellets to feed livestock.
    Vegetarian cows are now the world’s largest ocean predator.
    The oceans are dying in our time. By 2048 all our fisheries will be dead. The lungs and the arteries of the earth.
    Billions of bouncy little chicks are ground up alive simply because they are male.
    Only 100 billion people have ever lived. 7 billion alive today. And we torture and kill 2 billion animals every week.
    10,000 entire species are wiped out every year because of the actions of one species.
    We are now facing the 6th mass extinction in cosmological history.
    If any other organism did this a biologist would call it a virus.
    It is a crime against humanity of unimaginable proportions.

    Animals must be off the menu because tonight they are screaming in terror in the slaughterhouse, in crates, and cages. Vile ignoble gulags of despair.
    I heard the screams of my dying father as his body was ravaged by the cancer that killed him. And I realised I had heard these screams before.
    In the slaughterhouse, eyes stabbed out and tendons slashed, on the cattle ships to the Middle East and the dying mother whale as a Japanese harpoon explodes in her brain as she calls out to her calf.
    Their cries were the cries of my father.
    I discovered when we suffer, we suffer as equals.
    And in their capacity to suffer, a dog is a pig is a bear. . . . . . is a boy.


    Powerful Words Win Debate
    These powerful words by Citibank's former vice president and philanthropist, Philip Wollen, manage to move me every time. If you haven't listened to his moving debate talk yet, please watch!

    Could I submit the story of my dog to your page for you to post?:)

    This is Cody, and he's four years old. Until he was about two years old, he lived on a puppy farm, where he and his siblings were beaten and starved daily. The mother and father dogs were the only ones being fed properly, because they were being used to breed over and over.
    When we got Cody, he was terrified of loud noises, wouldn't look anyone in the eye, his fur was knotted, and his skin was a little bruised.
    Now we've had him for two years and he's as happy as ever! He follows me everywhere and got his courage back.. He's even brave enough to sleep on my bed whenever he wants!

    Advice to anyone raising rescue animals – NEVER hit them, even if you're scolding them! That could set them back months in their recovery and it's not nice!
    Also, watch our for buying puppies from puppy farms! ALWAYS ask to see where the puppies are kept. Then you'll be able to tell if the animals are treated properly.
