Overview
The Pregnant Mare Rescue has written a series of books addressing tough issues children sometimes face. The inspiration to write these stories comes directly from our rescues. In over thirteen years, working primarily as a horse rescue, specializing in pregnant mares and orphaned foals, we have also saved the lives of dogs, cats, squirrels, guinea pig, donkeys and rabbits. All of these animals have experienced either grief, death of a loved one, violence, abandonment, abuse, neglect, fear, emotional trauma, family loss and all of them have shown how resilience and hope can help the healing process. Based on the real experiences of our rescues, the stories send a message of love, forgiveness, and the possibility of hope for children everywhere.
Description
The Pregnant Mare Rescue has written a series of books addressing tough issues children sometimes face. The inspiration to write these stories comes directly from our rescues. In over thirteen years, working primarily as a horse rescue, specializing in pregnant mares and orphaned foals, we have also saved the lives of dogs, cats, squirrels, guinea pig, donkeys and rabbits. All of these animals have experienced either grief, death of a loved one, violence, abandonment, abuse, neglect, fear, emotional trauma, family loss and all of them have shown how resilience and hope can help the healing process. Based on the real experiences of our rescues, the stories send a message of love, forgiveness, and the possibility of hope for children everywhere. The Pregnant Mare Rescue brought in a reading specialist, an equine therapy clinician and psychologist to critique, advise and comment as we created our stories. Our observation is that every animal has the capacity to provide healing messages of hope. We have witnessed their remarkable behavior.
About the author
In 2006 upon discovering that over 100,000 American horses were being sent to slaughter in Canada and Mexico, Lynn decided to get involved. She founded the rescue in May of 2006, relocated her family to the Santa Cruz County, applied for non-profit status and began pulling pregnant mares out of harms way. While working full time, and raising a family she remained relentless to the goal; saving pregnant mares and orphaned foals from abuse, abandonment and a trip to the slaughterhouse. The miracles began to happen. It has been well documented the remarkable and life changing experiences horse share in a therapeutic setting. The rescued horses demonstrated their gifts of healing and comforting. The idea came forth like opened floodgates. Calling in certified equine specialists Lynn began developing programs for children. The Pennies for PMR Program, The Wonder of Horses Program are two of the highly enjoyed well-received programs designed to help children experience "horse" and the value of giving. The series of books for children was a natural progression. The need to share this important gift! To best spend time with her children and help them maintain a connection to nature, the decision was made to leave the bay area, and head over to Santa Cruz County. The decision has been a great one. Lynn and her husband of 29 years enjoy ranch life, the coastal fog and the wonderful feeling of making a difference.
