Hey everyone, so I’m kind of having a crisis of faith. I’m getting a little tired of writing, reading and researching all the nightmare-inducing and vile acts being done in the horse world. The horse world is supposed to be my happy place and, in addition to the atrocious images now floating around in my head, I’ve had to repeatedly cancel on my own horse. It’s not fair to him – he’s used to having 110% of my attention, and it’s not fair to me, I’ve enjoyed giving him 110% of my attention. For so many reasons, ones that I really don’t want to go into in a public forum, that horse is my sanity and instead of making the most of our limited time together I’m busy writing about idiots on craigslist. If I can’t figure out a way to use this blog and its wonderful readership to help the horses then it’s no longer going to be a priority for me.
I’ve really enjoyed writing Snarky Rider and am loathe to give up on it, but I really feel I need to concentrate on me and my own happiness – because ain’t no one else going to
Right now, I’m going to continue to feature Rosemary Farms for September, and I’ve spoken with LEARN and they’ve agreed to be October’s featured rescue. We have Jenna’s ornaments on sale, and a portion of the proceeds from which will be donated to the monthly rescues. I’ve emailed the contacts I already have in the Rescue Network Database to talk about options and how we can work together to proactively help the horses.
I’m open to suggestions on all fronts. If anyone wants to become a regular contributor and help keep the snark alive, I’d welcome the help! Ideas on how to use the blog to help horses (like the filly featured last week) – please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
