The Windmill Gang is made up of all of our old rescue horses. We started off with quite a few more, but over the years the herd has thinned. Age and time took some, and others I found the perfect home for…..these were the younger horses that needed owners of their own to love and cherish them: Jubilee and Jingo….Penny, the welsh pony that needed doting on and is now keeping another old pony company…..and Sid the pony who absolutely adored kids, he now has 7 to take care of.
My beautiful Promise, who was rescued at an auction for $25 because she could barely walk and I promised her I would keep her for the rest of her life. And I did. And Gallant Andiamo who has also passed over the Rainbow bridge and now joined by Gerbrich (although she was never a formal member of the Windmill Gang - she and Andiamo loved to hang out together).
In 2016 we lost Margo, the Evil Donkey. Her mum was rounded up from the Mohave Desert and abandoned her at 3 days old. Bottle raised and just a brat. Always trying to help, she was…..loved her anyway and Bru, who I had since he was 4, left us at the age of 26, a horribly abused Arabian of impeccable bloodlines. Trust issues and a hairline fracture repaired with a plate in screws that kept him sound for the rest of his life.
We are now left with four: Oreo, Bailey, Violetta, Iris and Abbagoat. They will forever remain with us.
