INSPIRATIONAL STORIES OF COMMITMENT
From Horse Owners Who Care
The stories here are real. The real “Hollywood ending” is about the healing power of love! Love has no boundaries and there is no end. These horse owners have been over their head in trying to manage this unforgiving condition, but they kept on going! As John Wayne would say, they have “True Grit.” They have all traveled—and continue to travel—a difficult journey.
HEAL honors these individuals and their horses. Unless you own a horse with lymphedema or a draft horse with CPL, it is hard to grasp the totality of this condition. Every small victory needs to be embraced. The lack of understanding about this condition and how to manage it leaves owners in isolation, enough for many people to give up. The sad part is they do! Lymphedema can tax you physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and financially. But there is hope! When you see a horse who refuses to give up, they motivate us to keep going. I hope the stories inspire you. After you read them, please say a prayer for each one of them to continue the fight so they can inspire others.
