The 2022 Sommerfield Stables Horse Show on Sunday, September 18th was a big success! Thank you for your participation
THE GRATEFUL DOGS
Linda had the wonderful opportunity to visit The Grateful Dogs owned and operated by Derek & Melissa. Derek calls himself a canine guidance councilor and likes to think of his place as a developmental program that allows dogs to learn and use their own language. Instead of treating problem behaviors, he creates mental heath by fulfilling a dog's needs and teaching their owners to understand what their dogs are actually saying to them and what their bodies are saying back. As I approached this phenomenal place dogs greeted me, all well behaved and obviously so content in their environment. I was in a circle of dogs and I loved it! All are personally owned by Derek and Melissa and all with their unique issues, but all living together in this amazing place. Every dog is well groomed as is the home where they reside.
Derek and Melissa take in dogs every day for Doggy Day Care and will board overnight. Melissa is the cat lover with 3 that roam the spacious house freely.
Everyone must get along with the pack and vice versa to be in this program. To watch them all play and interact is a dog lover's dream.
Derek had contacted us to see if he could help us with any problem dogs we may have and after our visit I am sure he can help any dog we may send there.
KAIA IS ADOPTED!
Congratulations Kylee and Gabby on your adoption of Kaia, your second adoption from Royce's Rescue!
Kaia is a 19 year old sweet little Arabian who would stand on the cross ties for hours completely surrounded by children grooming her. She has been a wonderful addition to our program and enjoys toting around all levels of riders.
Thanks for participating and attending the 2022 Royce's Rescue Benefit Horse Show at Sommerfield Stables!!
We all had lots of fun, won some wonderful prizes and ribbons, and ate delicious food all day! We were so glad to see everyone there!
WE SAY GOODBYE
With deep sadness, Stretch was laid to rest today. Stretch had the kindest soul, and he touched the lives of so many. He lived a full-life as a gentle lesson horse at @Sommerfield Stables, and enjoyed a long, peaceful retirement in Hilltown. He will be forever missed by Samantha, his companion Tulafais, and the entire Royce’s Rescue family.
