News From Live And Let Live Farm

Rescued horse Cody and his wounded warrior Veteran were one of eight human-and-horse teams taking part in a recent 3-day therapeutic session at Live and Let Live Farm. The successful program was aimed at making a positive impact in the lives of both the wounded military personnel and the rescued horses as well. by Scott Philbrick Live and Let Live Farm

Well, we’re now into December, and the entire Live and Let Live Farm community hopes you all had a safe and blessed Thanksgiving holiday with your loved ones and families. As we continue to accelerate deeper into the holiday season, it is our wish that warmth, happiness, and safety, carry you all through New Years and into 2016. Next month, January, I’ll be writing a full summary of all the highlights of the goings on at the rescue in 2015 (and believe me, there’s a lot!), but for now I want to tell you about another wonderful program that has taken place at LLLF. The PRLI “Patriot Resilience Leader Institute”, Camp Resilience, has coordinated with LLLF’s HHHRA “Heather’s Healing Humans with Rescue Animals” to bring healing and restoration to a small group of wounded warrior veterans, through the Veteran Equine Retreat… a therapeutic connection with some of the rescued horses on our farm. Be-

cause of their individual histories, many of the horses have endured their own form of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, so in many ways this is an ideal, mutually symbiotic match. Working with rescued

horses fosters resiliency leading to growth and well being for the participants and the horses. This is not a horseback riding program, it is an experience designed to bring about life changes through See Philbrick on 29

PET OF THE WEEK

“Visa”

Age: 13 | Sex: Neutered Male | Breed: Jack Russell Terrier mix

Visa may be considered “senior” but you would never be able to tell! This boy is as playful and energetic as ever! Visa’s favorite toy is any type of squeaky toy. He can entertain himself so long as he’s got a trusty squeaky toy and will even happily rest in his kennel as long as he’s got his toy to keep him occupied! He can be a bit mouthy when playing or accepting a treat so it is advised that Visa only share his home with adults and teenagers (13+). Visa is looking for a medium energy home. He is selective about his animal friends and would need to meet any potential dog siblings. Could this mature boy be a new member of your family?
