Happy Turkey Day

Kelly and Gingus Turkey have
been granted pardon on this Turkey Day
Residents at Double L Stable have
his to say about this day ....................
" EAT TOFU rkey"

The last few weeks have been busy at Double L Stable. Winter has arrived not quite with the usual vengence but there has been snow and ice on the ground and many cold frigid days. The barn has received a new member into the bunch. An Arab cross originally named Flame has come from the Pennsylvania ASPCA to his perminant residence at the sanctuary. We hope Flame has many many happy years with the sanctuary and becomes just as spoiled and loved as the rest of the residents.

The sanctuary is involved in many activities for the community. We have several groups who come as volunteers at the barn. Most of these groups are made up of adolescents who for varied reasons are in need of social rehabilitation. This rehab starts with the horses. They interact on a weekly basis, not only caring for the horses directly, but learning the responsibilities and discipline involved in caring for animals. The unconditional love is shared from human to horse many times over through the eyes and hearts of these kids. Next week some of the kids will be honored to take part in a newspaper article which runs yearly for the rescue. This article allows the Argyle community to learn more about Double L Stables, but it also kicks off their Annual Christmas Card fundraiser. Each year hundreds of cards pour in from all over the United States with donations of $1,$5,$20, or more. All with cards directly addressed to the horses. This money helps keep hay and grain in the barn during the winter months. If interested cards can be addressed to:
