I’ve recently gained a lot of new followers, so I figured I would introduce myself, and share my story with those who don’t know me (The pictures I’ve posted will go along with what you are reading in the caption! Start from the last slide and swipe right the more you read!)! 😊
My name is Megan, and I’ve always had a love for all animals, especially horses! From the time I knew what a horse was, I was obsessed! I remember being a little girl, looking through books and searching on the internet for anything I could find to learn about horses, and I would beg and beg my parents to let me take lessons, and buy me a pony.
When I was five, I started tumbling classes. Not long after, I was hand picked to be on the gyms competitive team (I was too young to be on the competition team at the time, so I was on pre-team 🙈). I loved it so much that my gymnastics journey lasted eight years; however, in August 2017, I decided to end my gymnastics career.
A few months before, in May 2017, I had become a volunteer at West Virginia Horse Network (@wvhorsenetwork
). This was the first time I had truly been able to work with horses, and I was thrilled! I finally had the chance to do the thing I had dreamed of for years! I loved every second of it, and I had hoped to adopt my own horse eventually!
After I quit gymnastics, it gave me so much more time to focus on the rescue and the horses. I got really serious with it, and I started to learn so much! I was at the barn late almost every night, sometimes until midnight, working the horses and bettering myself.
In March 2018, my biggest dream came true. I adopted my best friend and soulmate, Major, who had been rescued in June 2017 from a seizure case (you can find the adoption post if you scroll to the bottom of my feed 🙂). It was the best day of my life!!
On July 11th, 2018, Major started to colic (you can read the whole story in detail if you scroll down on my feed). I stayed at the barn for three days and four nights keeping him from rolling, and keeping him hooked to his IVs. Very, very early the morning of the 15th, we made it to Park Equine Hospital in Lexington, KY.
