I've got distressing news

I am going to have to offer to give the donations back. The stable in Penang is closing- the land is being developed.

I was waiting to hear if the owner was going to try and move the establishment but he is not, I'm just glad I found out before I made the move because it was going to be a one gigantic hassle.

I simply do not have the cash on hand to offer refunds just yet. I've just contacted the funding site to find out if I can do it through their processing- or if I have to do it myself. If so, my sister is traveling in EU and will return in two weeks (Nov 21) and then I can refund donations as the funds are in her bank account.

There is an maybe still and option at a resort to give pony rides about 5 hours drive from Phuket- still in Thailand. I am in contact with them , but just not sure if this will work out.

I'm just sick about this - I was really looking forward to a new life in a fantastic city, Georgetown, Penang.

so [sniff,... sniff sobs] I have contacted all I can through emails and will be stopping the fundraiser. I will leave it up until I hear how to go about refunds.

Thank you so much to everyone who supported me - and the ponies.

OK back on track and THANK YOU to Olga Musson-Zepke down in Malaysia who sent in a $ 200 check. Olga has been a great supporter of the ponies- and me in the past even donating two brand new bitless bridles a few years back-bridles which I almost gave away with the horses that were adopted-but kept and now am glad I did !! THANK YOU OLGA !!

Last 2 weeks got a little side tracked with a couple of neglected horses in Phuket. Sadly, was unable to convince the owner she needs to let them go to a willing, compassionate buyer who wants to help with a fair offer and so,... not looking too good for them.

This leaves me to concentrate on what I can do for my ponies- now, with this campaign. Let me give a big thank you to Ankie Mooy for the THB 4000 cash donation on August 11th, (which is about $117 USD) bringing the fund up to $ 367 USD !! (And thank you to Reena and Glenys for helping Ankie find me !!)

Thank you everyone !

Two horses in the jungle, Born to run and needing an assist

An American maiden, Pleasant and humble, Under the gun and making a list

Let the maiden write your name, Cash your check to make the dream

These horses are in dire peril, The maiden is over a barrel

To another island they need to go, There they will be safe -- make it so.

Tap the screen or click of the mouse, Be warm in your house,

But remember the clock is ticking,

Let's keep these horses hooves a kicking !!

Together, seven folks have contributed 16 % of the goal in one week and special thanks to the gentleman in The Great State of Texas who not only contributed $ 150, but wrote this fantastic comment;

Imagine being on your own in the Equatorial jungle trying to save the life of two horses and simply wanting to help others with them. All you need is for a few comfortable Americans to pull together and create $4000. What do you do?

Thank you, all. And Lamburg and Pony-Boy are very grateful, too- in their horsey way.
