I just opened a second shop on Etsy. "Say it Stamped" I had alot of requests for personalized items that weren't horse related so I decided to open up a new shop for that particular line of jewelry. I still have alot more to list but here is a peak!

How You Can Help

On the night of January 26, Heresy Horses suffered a devastating loss when the barn on Julie's small farm was engulfed in flames. No horses perished in the fire and for that we are grateful.  We are also grateful for the outpouring of prayers and support from the equine community.  Thank you for coming to this page to see how you can help.  Below is the link to our PayPal donation account and a list of much needed supplies.

The Basics Are Always Needed, and now more than ever! If you live in the area and can deliver supplies, we are very grateful.  All equipment, tack, supplies, feed and hay were lost in the fire.   Halters, lead ropes, blankets in 70" - 74" sizes and square bales of hay are especially critical needs.

  • New or gently used lead ropes and halters in all sizes
  • Weight building supplements and wormers
  • Bedding materials for stalls
  • New or very gently used blankets in various sizes and weights; all straps and buckles intact and in good repair; clean and ready for a new owner
  • Parasite control products, such as fly spray. Be sure to check package labels to ensure products are not out-of-date, as these could be ineffective against pests
  • Industrial-type brooms, scoop shovels and stall forks
  • Grooming supplies
  • Cash to purchase hay and feed, to pay for veterinary services, and to cover the daily operating expenses. Click here to connect to PayPal and make a cash donation in any amount.
  • Gift certificates redeemable at feed, farm supply, and home improvement stores, gas stations and elsewhere. Tractor Supply is a good choice and readily available nation-wide and online
  • Volunteers, especially those with equine, construction, marketing, advertising, and fundraising expertise. In-kind donations of labor or parts that keep the truck and trailer rolling and in good repair are greatly appreciated.
  • The services of generous veterinarians, vet techs, farriers and other equine professionals are gratefully accepted as needed.

I would like to introduce to you my inspiration for making my jewelry, our beautiful horses! Horses have always been a part of my life and I couldn't imagine life without them. Two of our horses are rescues and that has made me aware of the many horses out there that are in need of loving homes. It is a shame that theses beautiful creatures become disposable. They have big hearts and so much to offer.

 T.W. Haus, aka, "The Amazing T.W.Haus" is a big, 10yr old Tennessee Walker. Most of his vision is gone due to moonblindness and has been from a very early age. Before we got him he was out to pasture for several years and very picked on by the other horses. He is a dream to ride, does trail riding beautifully, and even performs in the show ring. You would never know this horse is visually impaired.The first summer I had him he won a first place blue ribbon at the County Fair in Easy Gait Class.

Whiteout is the "Charmer". He has the sweetest personality and is quite the ham. He is an 8 yr old Standardbred. When we got him he was fresh off the track.Within a very short time we had him going down trail like a pro. He is extremely intelligent and is an awesome ride down trail. He is a rare gray and very handsome ( and he knows it too.) He is my husbands "Big Puppy Dog"! That is me in a rare pic of Whitey not making a silly face. He loves to make goofy faces for the camera.

Dude is our baby. He is a 5 yr old Reg. Paint. He was purchased by my Mom for just trail riding. He is a beautiful mover with alot of chrome....but Dude has a new job, Show Horse! My son took over training him and has had an awesome two seasons of very successful showing on him. Dude is quite lazy and would just rather eat than anything but when this boy enters a show ring he is a performer!! He will be showing Training Level Dressage this season.

I would love to hear your story about your rescue horse!
