The tiny Argyle Front Porch Forum continues to outperform expectations. See these two recent postings from Shannon…
Sadly I have been asked to help with a very hard emergency situation. One of our fellow Argyle residents is losing their home. They have tried all the options out there and the last effort to do a loan modification ended up not working out after all. It looks as though next Friday the 8th could be the last day this family can be in their home.
They have 5 horses who all need a safe place to go. They are looking for homes for them and they do not need to stay together. Each horse will come with aprox. 55 bales of hay. There are 2 horses who are 9 and could be ridable when properly trained. The other 3 are mainly companions although the oldest (30) could still work with kids.
I realize this is a tall order to fill in a week’s time. We just don’t have the space here for them either. If we split them up perhaps they can all land in a safe spot. Please pass this on, post it on your facebook pages or any place you think it would help. The 2 younger horses would be great training projects. The gelding needs all his training and the mare already has lots of training e/w and some dressage but freaks out if you raise your voice. She is an Adn. TBX. Gray.

And her follow up…
Wow! Was I surprised at the number of calls I got in regards to the 5 horses in need on Coach Rd. Over 100 calls! Not only did Argyle animal lovers step up but I had at least half a dozen calls from folks who thought they might have info that would help the family losing their home… I believe all the horses may be spoken for but I will update everyone if any of the homes fall though. Way to go Argyle! You picked up the post and really ran with it… I had more success just posting this on the Argyle Front Porch Forum to spread the word then I have ever had before, even posting it on our national Petfinder site!
