Huckleberry’s is pleased to introduce the Stable Stack Sandwich on focaccia bread with ham, pulled pork pickles, swiss cheese with Cuban sauce for $11.  $1 dollar for each sandwich sold will go to HERD’s general fund.

                        Edge Brewing was established in Barcelona in 2013 by two Americans who were so eager to join the craft beer revolution in Europe that they brought a brewery. Combining finely engineered American brewing equipment, the best ingredients available and many years of brewing experience, they are now making fresh, genuine, American craft beer for the local market.

National attention about the plight of slaughter bound equines

I am so proud of Heather, Stuart Evans, all of our volunteers, board members, all the people that have adopted a rescued equine and the people that donate to make this all happen! The recent article on HERD has made all sorts of national papers across the country. The more we all speak up for the lives being subjected to such cruelty, the more people that have no idea about the torture will hear!

A Wonderful Article on HERD In CHRONICLE of the HORSE / UnTACKED

In our wildest dreams we did not think we would save so many equines in 2017.  It took a lot of  time, money and pasture space that our HERD volunteers have donated.  Thank you all for saving and rehabilitating these lives!  It takes a HERD to make this happen and all of our HERD members,  adoption and foster families have made a huge difference!  I want to make a special thank you to our board members Stuart Evans, Sue Z Truitt and Elaine Freeman whose expertise was so instrumental, as well as Rick Millweard who heads up our dedicated training volunteers like Debra Carton and Karen Mastruserio.  There are just so many people like the Olivers at Edge Brewing Equestrian, Dot Moyer, Ann Swift, Barbara Claussen and many of our neighbors who donate space and time everyday, the list is just so long and all with such big hearts.

Ishmael the Florida Cracker horse dining out for breakfast

Ishmael and Walt

As Ishmael the Florida Cracker horse becomes a little comfortable with the routine, I introduce something different that he finds scary. It has been a slow process getting him to
trust me. Today, the morning feeding routine changed for him. We took a hike through Jo's meadow and up to the top of Meyrs' Peak so he could be fed by the God of Molten Steel. It took him a long time to relax enough to get to the bottom of the bucket, but he figured it out. Poor guy, the things that must have been done to him! He is such a gentle horse. Once he sheds this baggage about two leggers, he is going to be a great companion.

HERD CLINIC DAY 2 with KYB DRESSAGE

A little cool, a little drizzly but still great instruction   This was a very good and informative clinic this Saturday!

Yvonne Barteau of KYB Dressage tells the spectators that she often hears riders say that a horse being evaluated is to old to be useful. She disagrees. This beautiful animal is in his 20's! Her point in the discussion? Don't throw an old friend away to auction, they have plenty of uses. What rider wouldn't want to go to a lesson or show on this guy or what trainer wouldn't want to teach a client on-board this kind of experience!!! If a TB isn't fast enough on the track, a quarter horse isn't quick enough around the barrels, or age has made him not flashy enough for the big show. It's time to reevaluate their job description, not time to throw them away to auction where they most likely will end up on a meat wagon!

 In less than 10 minutes she had him not only walking across the tarp but standing on it.  Very brave and VERY in-tune with his partner.

HERD Clinic Day 1 with Yvonne and Kim Barteau from KYB Dressage

What a wonderful day in the Foothills of NC!  Day one of a two-day clinic being taught by renowned FEI Trainer & USDF Gold/Silver/Bronze Yvonne and Kim Barteau!  A big thank you to Trayce Doubek–Dierks and Eric Dierks, owners of  Renovatio Farms for donating their beautiful facility for this event as well as all the sponsors that made this possible.

Three of our HERD babies were brought in by trailer for Yvonne Barteau to assess.  Amelia, Stuart and Bob were excellent on their first off property adventure.  We are so proud of all the work our volunteers have done to bring these youngsters from scared, malnourished horses from a  kill pen to  what they are today, brave, happy horses ready for adoption.  You can learn more about these three at www.herdrescue.org
