| Bella and Jasper, three years later:
that came true
When Bella and Jasper arrived at California Coastal Horse Rescue almost three years ago, the first wish for them had been granted: they had been spared from being destroyed.
As part of a group of pregnant mares that had been sent to auction, their fate would most likely have been being sent to slaughter.Thanks to the rescue effort that was mobilized by National Equine Resource Network and also made possible by a network of CCHR donors, volunteers and supporters, Bella and Jasper were saved.
The next wish...
Immediately upon arrival at CCHR, Bella and a week old Jasper had to be placed in quarantine for three weeks;
the fear was that they had been previously exposed to Strangles, a highly contagious disease that affects equine lymph nodes
in the upper respiratory tract. The hopes and wishes of everyone involved focused intensely on the well-being of these two horses.
Another wish was granted; Bella and Jasper came through quarantine without any health concerns.
And possibly the most important wish...
'Please let there be happy forever homes and companions for both Bella and Jasper'
Well, this wish
has come true in the happiest of ways; both Bella and Jasper have found the people who have become their most trusted friends, protectors and companions. Jasper was taken under Shannon's wing from the day he arrived at CCHR and it is beautiful to see the relationship that has developed between them as Jasper has grown in the last two years. This sweet and energetic gelding has found a loving and dedicated friend and teacher in Shannon. Bella, too, has found her special friend and companion in Kate. We are so happy to know that the last year and a half have been the great beginning of what is sure to be a very long and happy life for Kate and Bella. From the look on their faces in the picture below, it sure looks like they were meant for each other!”
