Red Bucket Brigade – Sentinels of Hope for Hungry Horses

amazinggraysministry.com [cached]

Shari Frederick, founder and self-described "head pooper scooper", recently invited Amazing Grays Ministry to visit the rescue and work with a few resident horses with bonding or trust issues. Before moving on to my round-pen meetings, Shari took me and my husband and I on a walking tour to meet the residents of HHH; dogs, donkeys, and horses - lots and lots of horses.

Every introduction included the horse's name, story, and a brief overview of its personality and challenges.
Beauty dressed in plain Texas clothes
I don't know if it was Plato or other social commentator of the day who first recognized need as a prime generator of creativity, but if it is true that necessity is indeed the mother of invention then Shari Frederick may be Mother Superior.
Some folks like to support causes that are classy, well-marketed, and the darlings of the media. Just 'Think Pink' and you'll know what I'm talking about. Â Glossy wrappers don't necessarily mean that what lies underneath the smooth layers isn't worthy, but some challenges are so great there isn't room in the budget for coordinated clothing, equipment, or back drops for pre-scheduled photo ops.
At HHH the only obvious coordination I saw were stacks of matching red buckets and the design of horse shelters. Shari is a master of re-purposing materials to make improvements at HHH without having to fork over funds that could be used to feed, care for, and sometimes train rescue residents. No longer needed storage containers have been modified and placed in a neat row to protect feed and provide shelter for horses.
If you look closely at the photo at the end of this article you'll notice that the fence is not one simple line of pipe rails. Shari designed the alley where the Red Bucket Brigade musters daily with evenly spaced gates that create a long row of small pens when closed. The entire rescue is an ingenious work in progress designed to make caring for large numbers of horses safe and possible.
Seeking Connection, Safety, and Relationship
Coco, a beautiful gray quarter horse mare, had absolutely no history with humans before coming to HHH as an 8 or 9 year old. Â Shari believes it was divine intervention that made it possible for me to meet Coco in a large arena area used as a paddock without any other horses to distract her. Coco wouldn't allow anyone to walk up to put a halter on her, so getting her into the round pen was our first goal.
Coco may think I'm nuts, but she's paying attention!

While my husband and Shari chatted outside the arena I began the slow process of finding a beginning with Coco. She quickly learned that all she had to do was look in my direction.
...
Shari finished feeding everyone and we went in to lunch and thick towels to dry sopping hair and change shirts.
The rain was determined to win the day. Shari, Baber, and I enjoyed lunch and learned more about one another.
...
There are far too many interesting notes and details about Shari Frederick, her experiences, and the horses than I can cover here. Please visit her websites, learn more about the rescue, and if you have the opportunity to support her efforts - make a small donation or drive on down to Goldthwaite and muster in with the Red Bucket Brigade yourself.

Before leaving to drive back up to Weatherford, Shari made a point of asking me to say good-bye to Coco.

Visit these websites for information, scads of photos, and to connect with Shari and the horses. Her Facebook wall is updated daily with horse, visitor, and volunteer activity. You can spend hours just looking at photos!

Knowing Shari, hare mission, purpose, dedication, commitment, follow through and tenaciousness, I have to say this article captures the heart and soul of HHH and it's devoted steward. Shari is one of the most hard working, resourceful, dedicated horse people I know. I pray for her mission/purpose

I am MOST privileged to be able to call Shari 'Friend'. Her work is humbling to observe and I look forward each October when I can return for just 2 weeks to raise donations and HELP Shari


Her plea reached Shari ...

www.seraphim12foundation.org [cached]

Her plea reached Shari Frederick, founder and president of Happy Horse Haven Rescue in Goldthwaite, Texas, through the National Equine Resource Network. Frederick had launched her own efforts to find new "responsible, financially stable, pre-approved adopters" for these horses, if necessary. "For we rescuers our interest is, are there 300 horses? And do they no longer have a home and therefore need placement? I don't care who you are or where you are, I always try to help," Frederick said. "We save them, but then you have to put them somewhere. You have to find people to take them, to care for them and train them." Frederick found a buyer for the horses but still needed to find a place for them. y Saturday, December 22, the Humane Society of North Texas had gotten involved.

...
t appears, according to the article, the purchase organized by the Beards was after Shari Frederick "found a buyer for the horses but still needed to find a place for them."The Beards say they checked their buyer out thoroughly, but this may be more of a Christmas charade than a Christmas miracle on the part of the buyer.
