Ontario farmer awarded for preserving breed fears about 25 of her ponies could be auctioned off for slaughter

A farmer from northwestern Ontario is appealing to people online to help save her stock of a rare horse breed from being auctioned off in Manitoba — and potentially sold for slaughter as meat. In a social media post on Thursday, Fort Frances, Ont., farmer Rhonda Snow said she has been forced to sell off 25 of her roughly 50 horses, including several Lac La Croix, or Ojibwe, ponies — a breed so rare, it's estimated there are only a few dozen left in existence.

Had great weather for the second Hunt of fall 2017!

Also, to note, this is a drag hunt club. The hounds follow a synthetic fox scent (they are not live hunting wildlife). :)

Hopewell Creek Stables helped out Sunrise Therapeutic Riding center in a big way!

We raised over $1700 to support the center in their annual Hoofbeat Challenge held Sat. Sept 30. https://sunrise-therapeutic.ca/

A true horseman does not look at the horse with his eyes, he looks at his horse with his heart.

When we think of those companions who traveled by our side down life's road, let us not say with sadness that they left us behind, but rather say with gentle gratitude that they once were with us.
