    Sorry to everyone I had waiting for an update, thanks to Jason who stepped in.
    We had stood for 12 hrs today in the rain to raise funds but on the way home I got a call from Kathy to say Passion started acting weird….
    We rang Danny to come quick. In fairness he tore the roads to meet us. As you know she had a touch of colic but we saved her in time. Tonight she got a bout of really bad diarrhoea as a result but this is good as she has now has cleared out her tummy. Its only dangerous if left untreated. He also put a needle in her tummy to rule out infection. Thank god, all clear.
    Shes had loads of meds and is now sleeping but my heart is not the better of this fright. Danny said she will now be fine, just a bit of extra tlc for the next few days. Wont she love that.
    I want the world to know that Danny Holmes is such a dam amazing vet. He just blows me away, hes so talented and has just this gift with horses. I do laugh at the way he speaks to Passion. He calls her a drama queen and to stop acting like shes dying and straight away she cops on.
    He really cant wait till she is 100% perfect, she has tested him in so many ways from the start.
    But I think she has proved to me that Danny is worth his weight in gold.
    Tonight im having another sleep over with Passion, it might be easier to build a stable with a bunk bed at this stage, i'll let you all know how the night goes in the morning.
    Sorry to everyone who text me to see if she was ok, i ran out of credit.
    As for now…..
    The Princess…. sleeps xx

(You can vote every day) Here's a status update from Suzanne Gibbons from 'Animal Heaven Animal Rescue' "Firstly, I have asked my team if I could write this myself. I could have had it posted with all fancy words and loads of supportive quotes but my friends of AHAR are working class like myself and I would rather explain in my own words, I owe you that much for your loyalty and endless support. For the last few months as you know we have been saving every penny we could, to get enough for the depos it for the bank to get our mortgage secured. It was amazing to raise the 20grand deposit so fast to secure the sale of the farm for six months while we raised the rest for the bank. At first we were told 100grand deposit. As I watched the money rise, my spirits were lifted. I couldn't believe it. But then just a few weeks ago, they raised it to a 120grand without warning. My heart sank, i never cried so much in my life but Jason Morris pulled out all the stops and made it his mission to get us to the next level. Well he did. Jason is one of the most inspirational people ive ever met. He keeps giving his time to AHAR without question. We are so lucky he found us. Team AHAR means the world to me, I love all of you. Georgia is also away so im missing her to bits. She is my rock. Thank god I have Ted to burden or id really be lost. Just last week we were at our 120grand. We then could make this formal, we could ask for the loan. I could hardly breath with fear. But only to find out that we now need to raise another 10grand. In blunt they have offered us the loan but in two halves. A mortgage to cover 60% and I must get a personal loan to cover the rest. In short, I need to raise a further 8,500 euro but ive only one week to do this. There has been another offer on this farm. Only for the owners giving me extra time, id have lost my deposit by now. Thank you Liam Nolan. But a huge thanks goes to Joan O'Sullivan our accountant, you are one amazing lady. Some might say this is impossible, but loads said that from day one and we proved them wrong.The people that didn't say it are here with me now, reading this post….. my army. So I need you all one last time to help. We cant give up now, we have so many plans and dreams together for such a small fee, 8,500 euro and we are there standing together. Please help in any way you can, even if you have some good ideas? Im really exhausted and feel deflated right now. I need you to give me the energy to keep going. This has worn me down, its like smelling a cake in the oven but you cant get the door open…. yes I think im loosing my mind (as I smile, I don't know what else to do…) xx Suzanne"

    Just a quick fund-raising update as Suzanne has been delayed between running a street collection in Castleisland all day and looking after the animals. She will be on to give a full update later.

    But the good news is that we have already received more than €2500 in donations in the past 24 hours, for which our huge thanks to everyone who has already contributed.

    This means that our target is now down to less than €6000 to raise in the next six days to get the loan we need from the bank to secure our permanent premises and make the dream of an AHAR Rescue Centre a reality.

    If we can keep up the current momentum we can get there. So, if you can donate anything, however large or small, it all makes a difference & it all moves us another step forwards. The link is http://ahar.ie/donate/ Thank you so much!

    We have received a number of items to auction which are available on the following link – https://www.facebook.com/auctionforahar

    Please vote for Suzanne Gibbons in the Calor Community Champion competition to put her in with a chance of winning up to €10,000 for AHAR – the money is desperately needed at the moment to go towards the purchase of our new permanent premises for our AHAR Rescue Centre and this would make a huge difference!

    It's very simple to vote and you can vote ONCE PER DAY so please vote AGAIN even if you have already.

    Whilst the ultimate decision will be made by a judging panel, she needs to be in the top four for votes to be considered and obviously the higher the support we can show for her and AHAR, the greater her chances of winning.

    This is the link to vote – thank you!!

    Picture this…
    Close your eyes.
    Listen…
    Do you hear the drums sounding? As the drummer boy leads his army in to battle.
    In the darkness you can hear the hooves marching…
    You can smell the sweat from their leather, as they pass.
    The armour catching the shadow of their souls in the moon.
    They are here.
    Do you see the shadows of their breath? Catching every soul, as they pass.
    Taking them all, with their dream.
    (S.Gibbons)
    Good night from AHAR. Thank you to my army xx
