At only 25 years old, Sophie has made a difference in so many animals' lives. The love she has shown as farrier (horse whisperer) to my little herd of manicure-shy rescues has touched my heart every visit. Now, because of the devastation of a wildfire, Sophie and her animals need help.
I wish I could post all of the pictures of her animals (all rescues), but there's only space for 1. So.... her evacuated family consists of 7 horses (5 seniors), 2 senior goats (Poco and Priscilla), 6 peafowl (3 had to be released on evacuation day and thankfully 2 have been sighted), 11 bantam chicken and 2 ducks.
Thankfully Sophie didn't lose her home, but the summer and winter paddocks are compromised, rails and posts burnt either to ash or enough that they need replacing. The winter field sides and front are burnt to ash. The summer field is missing all the fencing on one side. She is still measuring, but it's 500ft + of fencing gone on various terrain. Replacing fencing in the rocky areas is going to be complicated.
Sophie is such a trooper. Despite being out of home with only 2 outfits and still unable to return due to power outages, she continues to care for our animals. She is a very special human, and her animals need us to help her now. Even if it is $1 and a kind word, it will help.
Thank you for sharing if you aren't in a position to help.
