For “My” Horses

When I began blogging nearly eight years ago, I had no idea how many new friendships would result. Although we haven’t met in person YET,  one of those newfound friends is Beth Ann, whose blog is It’s Just Life.  And meeting in person one day is in our plans.

Beth Ann does something really unique with her blog.  Each month, she selects a charity and posts about it on the first day of the month.  THEN, for each comment left on her blog posts throughout the entire month, she and her husband donate 50-cents to that charity.

And…..I am SO happy to announce that, for the month of June, Beth Ann has chosen:


If you know me or have followed my blog for any length of time, you know just how special the CWHF is to me. There are some dedicated folks involved in that organization, and their sole purpose is to care for the wild horses of the Corolla/Carova area.

Just last week, a foal had to be removed from the herd after being attacked by a stallion (not his sire).  He’s been named Chris, in honor of the deputy who stayed with him until the CWHF folks could arrive on the scene. Chris, the foal, is now being cared for at their rescue facility, and requires round-the-clock attention. He has a surrogate “mom”, but prefers milk supplement from a bucket (!), and he has wounds that need special attention.  Please send special thoughts for baby Chris to make a full recovery.

I am so excited that Beth Ann has chosen this charity for her Comments For A Cause this month. She hasn’t yet visited Corolla, but as a faithful reader of my blog has been subjected to my many posts about the horses.  And I guess you could say she’s fallen in love with them too.

And I’m also happy to announce that my very special Motor Man said: “Tell Beth Ann that we will match whatever donation she and her husband make to the CWHF at the end of the month”.

So, readers, please visit It’s Just Life, and comment often.

Thank you so much, Beth Ann, for choosing CWHF for your Comments For A Cause charity this month. We can’t wait for you and your Chris (Mr. Diamond), to visit the Outer Banks, so we can take you both on a horse tour.
