Time 4 A Lil’ Horsin’ Around

Cuteporter Vanessa checkin’ in again from The Great White North. “I recently discovered York Region, Ontario’s only Equine Rescue – “Segunda Vida” (Latin for Second Life.)”


“They are a working farm and boarding facility..”


“..which pays for a good portion of the rescue, but they are always in need of funds & would also welcome new volunteers.”


“Is there anything better than helping out rescued horses?”


“I didn’t think so.”

  1. What beautiful,beautiful pictures.
    I looked at the site,they have a registered Canadian stallion that is absolutely gorgeous!
    Wish I could take a dozen. *sigh* no $

  2. Absolutely beautiful! Gorgeous horseys, gorgeous photos. In the first photo, he looks like he’s up to somethin’ naughty. 🙂

  3. Such a wonderful cause! I adore horses. A lot of the horses were rescued from slaughter (noooooooooo!!). *shudder*

  4. I’d volunteer, except I don’t live in the York Region. Or Ontario. Or Canada. Bit long of a commute, is what I’m sayin’.

  5. Vanessa, I checked out and saved your webpage. thanks so much for your beautiful photos. it feeds my heart.

  6. Thank you, Alexa, for your very kind words. It feeds my heart to have you say that. 😀

  7. for the record, “segunda vida” is Spanish, not Latin.
    hurray for horses!

  8. Segunda Vida is a rescue I’m proud to have had the privilege to work around. Both with rescuing some horses and just helping out around the barn. AMAZING bunch of people, young and older. If you not sure, stop in and you’ll be sure its something worth doing. Good for the soul, both yours and the horse !!!

  9. Gorgeous photos, love your work Vanessa ❤

  10. Thank you so very much, Kathryn. You’re very sweet.
