I just wanted to give you an update on how I am doing.  I have a new girlfriend.  Her name is April.  She is kinda bossy, but then my Dad says, most women are like that.  My mom needs surgery, so riding is out for us.  She still plays tag with me and plays hide and seek with the cookies.  I have a new shelter build my Dad.  It is so great!!!

I will send pictures soon!

My life is forever blessed by Marg and the rest of you!  Mom is putting in...

A true story of Char and her Adopter Brennan

Posted by BTFL on November 16, 2013 at 4:35 PM Comments comments (0)


My son out grew his pony and we were looking for a step up for him. We decided to go to our local horse rescue Beyond the Fence Line horse rescue and adopt. My son fell in love with Kolt (known there as Char) and they were a match made in heaven. We took Kolt to Pella this year (which we only had Kolt a few months). This would be the first time my son would take her into the river. Neither my son nor the horse were familiar with the river depths or current and they ended up both...

Our Biggest Rescue Yet

Posted by BTFL on September 7, 2012 at 7:20 PM Comments comments (3)

The start of this huge rescue started when I received this email plea for help on August 24th, 2012.....

Yesterday I stumbled upon a neglect situation with approximately 25 or more mini horses, mini donkeys, and 1 Morgan stallion. According to the owner, 10 of these animals are stallions that  he keeps, 24/7, tied to a bar with a very short rope or chain(maybe a foot long, if that) or in a small stall with NO water and most without food. The Morgan had straw-like hay that he wasn&#...

Hello Everyone

Well the heat has past and Mom is busy keeping me happy, active, and healthy.  I have had to teach her how to use her seat and leg yields again, as I respond much better to them .  My mom says it makes her legs sore but she is not pulling with that darn bit in my mouth.  I am getting use to it though.

Mom and I have a new game we play.  It is called TAG.  She says I it and then I follow her sometimes walking, other times trotting and yes even cantering.  I ...

Hello Everyone

I just had my teeth cleaned and floated on Monday April 30, 2012.  The vet said my teeth are in great shape.

She said I was looking handsome, but we all knew that, right, and full of life.

I had all my 6 months shots but I was sorta sleeping due to my teeth floating.  Mom keeps trying to help me not get so scared of things!  I am still in a silly saddle called a dressage saddle.  Actually, I think they call it a DRESSage saddle because it make me look so smart ...

Hello everyone

As I reflect back on my last year of life, I am again thankful for all of you.  I remember this time last year being scared, hungry, afraid of human touch and feeling so cold that I felt I could have frozen in place and no one would have notice.

Now I am happy, mom says I am her shadow.  I am thankful for the blessings I am my siblings were able to recieve from BTFL rescue.  I just had my hooves done yesterday.  I am loving life again.  I ne...

My name is Dave Pommerening from Beyond The Fence Line equine rescue. I’m writing you to request a letter from you as to what a humane service my wife and I have done rescuing horses that you have adopted. Since we’ve started in June 2010 we rescued over 15 horses, nourished them back to good health, gave them some training and have adopted out to good homes. We have recently been advised by the zoning office, that we have to obtain a land use permit to continue our wo...

As you can see, Mom has put me in my new royal blue winter coat.  I am told that the reindeer are bringing special carrots because I have been so good!!!  My blind sister, Tanya and I are in horse haven here.  I always get extra treats, love and kisses.  I know Mom has had to let my coat out because I keep gaining weight.   I think it is the horse cookies!!!

I just wanted to thank everyone for sending me home to a place forever!  Mom always is telling...

Thank You

I just wanted to thank you again for coming to the Waushara County 4H Horse Association meeting to speak about your rescue and what is all involved.  I have already had youth come up to me asking if we will set something up this spring and do some volunteer work out by you.  If there is ever a time you guys need a helping hand, send me an e-mail and I will be glad to forward it onto our youth.  I also remember you saying you had a list of items you are looking to be...

Hello Everyone!

Mom and I have been practicing really hard to show you the new tricks I have taught her. I also have a new love I am living with.  Her naame is Dance.  She is an older woman, (35 to be exact) but she seems to dig younger handsome guys such as me!!!

So pass the word around, Jag is coming back to show everyone how easy it is to train a Mom and be so spoiled that everything I do, she praises me, usually with cookies and hugs.  I have had a body massage ...

Spirit makes A young girls DREAM COME TRUE

Posted by BTFL on October 10, 2011 at 10:15 PM Comments comments (0)

No pictures yet but I can't wait any longer to tell you the story of Spirits adoption. Faith asked me if I would mind bringing Spirit over Saturday morning. She knew of a family looking for a horse but wanted it to be a surprise. I obliged and the plan was that the little girl was coming for a lesson to be given by Faith. The little girl (Brooklyn) was also told that we wanted to be sure this horse was good with kids. Her birthday family party was Sunday. There were 2 little boys there that w...

JAG's Training

Posted by Mary Ellen Miller on October 2, 2011 at 11:05 PM Comments comments (1)

Jag has been very successful at training me with his likes and dislikes.  He also has set rules and limitations for his human adopted person.  They are as follows:

1.  NEVER, I MEAN NEVER, enter my royal area with treats.

2.  I will bow for a treat, but it better be a good treat and not some crumbs.

3.  I can move my head to both side of my body for suppleness, never did it before, because I did not have to reach for my treat that way.

4. ...

Jag had met his new farrier today.  He was excellent.  He does have a bit of a taste for the finer things in life such as baby sweet carrots, fresh apples, and horse cookies.  He even will help himself to the horse cookies in my fanny pouch.  He is a true gentleman and takes them gently.  I have been riding him in a dressage saddle with a hackmore and you know how we thought Jag did not like to trot.  Well, he does a nice extended walk and is just ...

Marinette county horse neglect

Posted by Mary Mullen on September 1, 2011 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (2)

Have you heard of this bunch of horses? I can't believe the police have been called out there since 2002 and only now are they pressing with charges against the owner. The cop says she got the fire department to water the horses in 2002!!
