Equine Voices Rescue and Sanctuary

I made a trip last Saturday morning out to a horse sanctuary called Equine Voices south of Green Valley, Arizona. I had read about their work in different newspaper articles and checked out their website ( What a great place! If you've ever heard of the plight of the mares and foals from the PMU farms, you will appreciate the work they do at Equine Voices. They rescue these horses and bring them back to the sanctuary to be adopted out to loving homes. They have an awesome mascot name Gulliver, who is a Clydesdale cross. He is one big boy, but as sweet as they come. It was a pleasure to meet Karen, who runs the sanctuary, and to meet all of the horses. They have a gift shop at the sanctuary and I will be adding some of my jewelry pieces for sale, with a percentage of the sale going back to help with the work at Equine Voices. See my "Gulliver" necklace I made for myself above. Check out the Equine Voices website, there is a lot of really good information.

Karma - gotta love it!

The other morning, I was on the etsy forums, and happened across a conversation (the subject of which I can't recall). The topic of bunnies came up and several members mentioned they had bunnies themselves, or had bunny related items in their shops. I went to check out one members' shop and found the sweetest little watercolor bunny looked just like one of my bunnies, so I promptly bought it. The seller ( has great stuff! Here is the print I bought:

And here is a pic of my bunny, Ginger:

Pretty cool, huh???

The karma part of this comes from the fact that while I was buying this little bunny print, the seller was buying some earrings from almost exactly the same moment!

It really made my day. :)

More Bunny Ramblings

I linked 4 of our bunnies' blogs from to this blog. MySpace for bunnies! If you love bunnies, you have to check this site out. Lots of great bunny pics. There are some serious bunny lovers out there. :) In my spare time (ha ha) we'll get the other 5 bunnies on there.

Bring me a bunny please!

I'm working on setting up this blog, with a little brown bunny tucked under my arm. She's the "original bunster", one of 8 bunnies in our house. I'll admit, this is taking me longer than is probably necessary to set up... but, it's my first attempt at blogging. Anyway, who needs a sleeping pill when you have a bunny...
