Senior Project Product and Pictorial Log
Log #1Getting Started
Date: Sunday, January 15, 2017
Time: 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
Hours: 5 hours
Activity: I talked with my facilitator and walked around showing me the ranch. I got to ask her how to get started adopting out horses to a good home for a deserving horse.
Here's the pony’s pasture and ponies that Cheryl showed me while we were walking around. They're very friendly but shy for being abused.
Log #1 Commentary
Mrs. Cheryl also showed me how horses are herd animals and like to stay together. Here the horses are free to do whatever and get to move freely.
I contacted my facilitator Ms. Cheryl Flanagan through Facebook messenger asking to set up a day or call to come to the ranch and talk about how to get started adopting out. We met at her ranch and discussed who is up for adoption and what their needs are. She showed me around the ranch and visited the horses in the stalls. we soon later sat down and talk more on animals behaviors, personality, and actions. I started working with two yearlings, both mares. They came from an abuse case in Gainesville, Georgia. It takes a lot of work that I learned to work with an animal to make them learn again to trust people and their surrounds. Even my facilitator has a hard time getting near them. So I switched off to befriend another horse and got time to see the differences in each horse.
Log #1 Leading Horses
Date: Monday, January 16, 2017
Time: 2:35 pm – 4:05 pm
Hours: 1 hour and 40 minutes
Activity: I became an ambassador for the homeless pets club at save the horses. Getting to work with the yearlings also seeing how they take treats, halters, lead ropes, crops, and how close I can get to both of them.
Commentary: When I was there that day I got to learn about how more difficult it really is to run a ranch having volunteers running around helping as much as they can also. Ms. Cheryl always takes Sundays to do all of the paper work for that week or month. She explained me that I could make a website for the two yearlings and share it on social media so that the news gets around and whoever is looking to adopt can adopt these two. So my next move is to work with them and creating an adoption page for them to help them find a willing person. Ms. Cheryl said that I can come every weekend and talk but the only negative thing is the distance.
Mrs. Cheryl told me that I could get a lead rope and walk the few horses that were still in the stalls that needed fresh air. Just giving them a free walk takes off a lot of unknown stress go.
My facilitator and I walked around telling me about the rescue stories and joineries of each animal. We both walked around checking in on the horses conditions and health status.
Most people would think this is a stressful job it is but its also rewarding to see every horse’s progress continuing. We also walked to the other pastures on the property and saw Roscoe rolling around after a bath a volunteer gave him.
As soon as we got to hang out with Trudy, she enjoyed our company because she barely gets out of the stall for safety reasons. Ms. Cheryl also told me how she has an undying love for horses in her heart.
We went to the min’s pasture and petted all of the little ponies expect for Dora, because she was afraid of people from being in an abuses situations. Leaving the ranch I got to take back information regarding about the horses I met.
