A Season of Hope

| December 28, 2011 | 0 Comments

This past holiday season, Horses of Tir Na Nog had the arrival of two new residents.

Mariah has been in the Care of County of San Diego Department of Animal Services since this summer. In spite of six other horses being adopted during her stay, she continued to wait for her new home. Riah’s name was chosen as an abbreviation for Mariah. In Hebrew, Riah means “Not forgotten.”

Kris was picked up by Animal Services as an underweight stray in Potrero. Due to an old injury, he, like Riah, is not able to be ridden any more. But they are each healthy enough to enjoy a life of retirement.

“Kris Kringle was named in keeping with Animal Service’s Claws and Paws adoption event on December 11. Kris Kringle is a common name in Ireland for what most of us call a Secret Santa,” said Rigney.

Horses of Tir Na Nog celebrated Holiday for Horses on December 20 at the Town & Country Hotel. This event helps to raise funds to care for all of horses at the Sanctuary during 2012.

Horses of Tir Na Nog is a charter member of the San Diego Horse Coalition, a group supported by the ASPCA to provide guidance, support, and education for the equine community of San Diego County.
