Capturing the heart of your horse story.

19 Over 19: Whisper

In the summer of 2004, when Angela was just 13 years old, fate intervened in the form of a horse found roaming near Hueco Tanks. The local dog pound picked him up to give him a temporary home until he could get adopted. Angela’s mother, spurred by compassion, rescued the wayward stallion. And so, Whisper found his way into Angela’s life, a silent presence waiting to be heard.

With a heart full of hope and determination, Angela embarked on a journey of trust-building with Whisper. Together, they overcame hurdles, both literal and metaphorical. Through patience and perseverance, Whisper gradually revealed his gentle nature, allowing Angela to forge a bond that would withstand the test of time.

Today, as Angela reflects on their shared adventures, she finds solace in the simple joy of riding alongside her children, Whisper’s presence a constant source of comfort and companionship. Through trails ridden and obstacles conquered, Whisper has been more than a horse; he has been a steadfast companion, a confidant, and a beloved member of the family.

To those embarking on the journey of caring for senior horses, Angela offers a simple yet profound piece of advice: cherish every moment. Though the road may be fraught with challenges, the rewards far outweigh the hardships. For Angela, the love she shares with Whisper is worth every obstacle overcome and every sacrifice made.
