THIS is why we do what we do at Shanks racehorse retraining and hannigans royal equestrian .
To have a horse that has been started so young as a flat racer, to then be too slow to race and discarded....to fall into the wrong hands and end up on the edge of the end of his life due to misunderstanding !! A horse that was once fearful of people, food aggressive, COMPLETLEY UNTRUSTING OF ANY HUMAN CONTACT..... To learn to accept love, to trust, to be at ease with us, to not fear human contact...... To learn, to want to please.....to SEEK OUT ATTENTION.... THIS ladies and gentlemen..... is why the endless tiring hours of shift work, early morning starts, devotion, tears, worry and hope are all worth it.... To turn these horses around and give them a 2nd or even 3rd chance at life..... And receive utter devotion from the horse in return!
Love your horses, build a bond.... and grow the wings upon which you will soar!

its been quite some time that i haven't felt completely honest about who i am. the truth is i have changed. but change is ok. change is healthy & natural. we must constantly evolve to figure out what or who it is we are truly searching for, living for. if our path is leading us in the right direction or contrary to this, leaving us lost, insecure, broken and confused about an illusion or false idea that our future should be laid flat out on the table, then we are misguided. we must learn to trust our inner self. who we genuinely are. not our physical form, not our shape or size. but us, you, i. we. because i am you, are us. beings. souls. i need to be. now, the present. no influence. i'm deseperate to turn my inside out. i feel an urge to know myself better. i have been driven into caos by distraction which has led me to the stage of fragility and instability. no one is to blame. - for the best - is what i believe, what i have been taught. like a seed under soil, making its way through heavy dirt while blooming into something stronger, becoming beautiful and free, constantly rising, constantly growing, looking up, opening up to the world, universe, spreading serenity wherever. whenever. joy and love to those who look at her.
its a new page, a development of new skin. they tell me to let go. to surrender. there is so much beyond our imagination, & our existence is more complex than we ever thought. in comparison to what i believe in, we are insignificant. but we can be power if we connect, if we feel, we can be part of an infinite light. we have to believe first. nothing comes easy but its worth the energy.
its the new beginning for me.
its my s e c o n d c h a n c e ✨🌻🌟🌈🎆♡
**ADOPTION NEEDED** ROMO, A WELL BALANCED, HAPPY BOY
Romo arrived at the pound in May 2017 and was 2-3 years old on arrival. He is a male crossbreed who was found wandering the streets, presumably abandoned.
Height: approximately 50cm Weight: approximately 20kg
Romo arrived wearing a collar and in good condition so we assume he must have been loved before but he had no chip and nobody came looking for him. He’s been a bit poorly since he arrived so spent some time in the office where he received lots of TLC, showed what a fantastic dog he is and became a firm favourite of the volunteers. Romo is a good boy who gets on with other dogs and really doesn’t cause any problems at all. He loves people and is always first in line for a cuddle – a lovely boy!
THIS IS AN UPDATE ON THE FABULOUS ROMO - Dear Romo was one of the lucky dogs invited to the SSD Dog Show last Sunday 1st October. Everyone was absolutely delighted in his perfect behaviour! He happily travelled in a crate in the car, was very calm walking around the streets to the show and at the show he amazed everyone with his gentleness and good humour. Romo was fabulous with all the children at the show, he adores people and he got on very well with all the other dogs at the show.
Romo was so happy at the dog show, so excited at being out and about and realising what a wonderful life is to be had outside of the pound. Sadly Romo is now back in the pound and is waiting for a loving family to give him a chance to experience that happiness again.
TO SUM UP, ROMO REALLY IS THE MOST PERFECT, LOVING AND LAID BACK DOG WHO WOULD LOVE TO BE PART OF A HAPPY FAMILY - PLEASE CONSIDER GIVING HIM A HOME.
If you are able to adopt Romo then please contact our adoptions team at email@example.com Thank you!
We love the sun and strolls to the playground! Please share post to spread word or message if you know someone interested in fostering or adopting us. Lots of hugs and love await! ---- Abbott and Costello
It's Pit Bull Awareness Month and while I don't have one of my own (yet), I have to chime in with my story! ❤️If you know me (or watch my IG stories) you know that I'm crazy about dogs. This last spring I started volunteering @nwdogproject and completely fell in love with this breed. 😍I grew up outside of Denver, where there was and still is a ban on pit bulls. 😠The news taught me to be scared of them but as I got older I learned about breed discrimination and it broke my heart. 😞 Now bully breeds are often found in shelters and rescues. They are rescued from abusive owners, backyard breeders (often to be trained to fight or used as bait), and many are abandoned. I am so thankful there are rescues like @nwdogproject and @luvabledogrescue (and many more) who give these dogs a second chance. I can honestly say that the the best dog cuddles I've ever experienced were from a rescued pit bull. ❤️They know they have been saved and they definitely show their appreciation! ❤️I am committed to being a pit bull advocate and helping out whenever I can. Even if all I'm doing is giving them walks and cuddles. 🐶They deserve to be shown love. #pitbullawarenessmonth (the goofy girl pictured now has her furever family ☺️)

When Denver’s long-term partner breaks up with him, he flees his life, his career, and his bright future as one of the country’s leading trauma surgeons. Ditching everything but his dog, Denver returns to the quiet town of Cooper’s Ridge and his parents’ ranch.
Leaving twelve years earlier, Denver knew he would never be accepted as a gay man in an unaccepting town. So, when he meets Kes—an old school friend—in the bar he owns, he is shocked to find him in an openly gay relationship. Something he never thought would happen here.
What surprises him even more is the instant, mutual attraction the three men have. Accepting a job in Kes’ bar, they dance around each other, wanting them but not believing he would ever fit in with a couple so obviously in love. But, they want him. And they are not prepared to let him go.
Denver takes a risk and accepts their offer of a night out, finding a side of himself he never knew existed. Not trusting himself to be enough for the two men, the desire blooming in him is unprecedented and he can’t deny it: he wants them as much.
He finds his life falling into place, all because of two men. Is it possible he found his forever in a place he never expected it? ❤ @jessjhoney
Everyone deserves a #secondchance . Nearly 1.5 million people in Florida are permanently excluded from voting because of a prior felony conviction. Florida is one of only four states that still has a system that excludes so many people from voting. And there is a chance to add an initiative to next year's ballot to change that.
We need to gather 1 million signatures from registered Florida voters by December 31, 2017. If we get the required signatures, this issue will be on the November 2018 ballot, and we can vote to change the law.
On Saturday, November 11, join us for our next day of action where Floridians will head out in their communities to gather petition signatures. Learn more at the link in our bio.

Once upon a time, a girl loved a boy and he loved her back. They lived happily ever after.
But our story was never that simple.
I loved Josh with all I had, right until the day he left. Now, all these years later, he was back—and wanting me the way I’d always longed for him. Except now, I belonged to someone else. Someone who never left me the way Josh had. I figured that was the end of our story. I couldn’t alter the past.
I didn’t want to rewrite my future.
Brianna was always more than my best friend. She was the shining light in my black hole of an existence, and I loved her with every cell and bone in my body. I wasn’t good enough for her, though—more the villain than the hero in our fairy tale. When I had to leave, I vowed to come back a better man—for her. But when I finally did return, she wasn’t waiting for me anymore. She had someone new, her very own Prince Charming. Did that mean our story was over? I couldn't change our past.
It was time to rewrite our ending.

The great philosopher, Winnie the Pooh, is given credit for this auspicious bit of advice concerning time, “Yesterday is history and tomorrow is a mystery. But today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present.”
I agree with Winnie the Pooh. Today is a gift of heavenly proportions. Today was meant, by its Giver, for our enjoyment, for our betterment and for our use of it for grander purposes than we could ever imagine.
Today was never meant to be wasted but was always meant to be resplendent!
Today was never meant to be twisted by the pain of the past nor was it meant to be warped by the anxiety of tomorrow.
Today was always meant to be savored … one delicious minute at a time!
Today is the day! Today is your day for dreams to come true … for relationships to be mended … for books to be read … for songs to be sung … for prayers to be prayed … for trips to be planned … and for friendships to begin.
Today is your day!
Don’t allow the regrets of yesterday to become landmines in the glory of today. Live each day in the present tense … with purpose, power and passion.
“The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.” – Psalm 16:6
But even while you are living in today, remind yourself often that life always offers you a second chance. It’s called tomorrow.

A sweet testimonial from a client who is giving her closet a second chance: "Love these looks so much- I am hooked! And I feel SO ready for conference packing!! Usually I stand at the closet and say 'I have nothing to wear or pack!'- Not so anymore- packing will be a breeze! Thank you guys! I can't wait until next time! :)" #testimonial#secondchance#weloveourclients#happywords#editandstyle#closeteditor
