Xaria Rose - New Foal

by Gena Osborn on 06/01/14

The little celebrity foal born at the Far View Horse Rescue on May 20th now has a name, Xaria Rose.   Lee Chandler and family are sponsoring the foal and as such received the honor of naming her.    They were challenged,  since the next name needed to start with an "X".   Putting their creative thinking caps on they came up with the appropriate name Xaria Rose which means Gift of Love.    

Xaria Rose continues to grow and trive at the Far View Horse Rescue.   She loves to wag her tale and kick up her heels.   She is truly a gift of love at the Rescue! 

Spring is in the air - Filly Foal Born

by Gena Osborn on 05/22/14

This May has brought more than warmer temperatures and longer days...it blessed the Far View Horse Rescue with a surprise miniature pony filly foal.    Venus is now the proud mama of this cute new filly.    The gestation period for ponies is 11 months, so when Venus came to the Rescue in October (8 months ago), no one was aware she was pregnant.   Kimberly Kissmann of the Rescue suspected Venus might be expecting but was surprised when she arrived at the Rescue on May 20th and found little legs were sticking out of mother Venus.   Kimberly and other volunteers immediately worked with Venus to deliver the little girl.  Kimberly, Carol (barn manger) and many others have been working with Venus and the foal helping to feed until Mother and baby can become self sufficient.   Watch the web site for updated photos of the new baby.
