Eclipz At His New Forever Home

“Welcome Home Eclipz”

Hi Karen,

Here are a few pics of our boy! He’s doing well and settling in now. I love him soon much, and am so grateful to have him as a member of our family.  Please tell Tom thank you again, he was a pleasure.

I will send you some video and more pics in a few days.  :)

Adoption of Eclipz – Our story by Leonard Patrick & Bonnie Redding

Adoption of Eclipz

Our story with Eclipz started with a 3-hour trip down to Equine Voices. We had never been there, although we had read a lot about Karen’s facility.

Arriving there, we were shown around the breathtaking facility by Karen personally. Being around the horses felt like instant therapy, and I must say the experience of being there changed my life for the better, until we met Eclipz and it became beautiful.

Never in my life did I ever have and feel a connection with a horse so powerful. Eclipz at that very moment stole my heart and filled my soul.

Driving away and returning back home we could not stop thinking about the experience and the amazing work Karen does at Equine Voices….and of course could not stop thinking about Eclipz.

Taking care of a horse is a huge commitment, in our view akin to having children, and thus not lightly thought of.

Eclipz however, for us, is that gentle being that makes it all worthwhile. For us, he is our boy and a big part of our family.

If you truly care about horses, stop by and visit Equine Voices. Adopting a horse is the expression of care and an unbelievable experience you will carry for life.

Good bye to a sweet horse

 I wasn’t flashy, I wasn’t big, and I wasn’t mean. I wasn’t tall, like Gully, I wasn’t gorgeous, like Illusion, and I wasn’t a biter, like some in my group. What I was, was friendly, dependable, and a friend to all that I came in contact with. Equine Voices gave me a great home for more than six years – what I gave back was a “sure, I’ll do that if you want me to. Sure, that stall is fine, and yes, I would like you to walk me.” I wouldn’t kick you, I certainly wouldn’t kick your dog, and, oh yeah, thank you for doing my eyes.  My last master wanted to end my life because I was going blind. You wanted to help me because I was going blind. My last caretaker was young and would have profited from my experience, but, alas, it wasn’t meant to be! So, instead I gave you my love and complete trust for many years, and even though I am now in greener pastures, I want you to know I appreciated you all. I had many good years, and like many others, sometimes the good die young. I had only two bad days in my whole life, and now I am resting, not too far from Big Bud. I want you all to know, the view from here is not too bad!

May You Rest In Peace
