Please Sign The Petition To Stop Donkey Roping – Get Them To Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue, TX

Donkey roping is an extremely cruel “sport” where the donkey is shocked with a cattle prod until he tries to run away. Once in motion two people on horseback run the donkey down, one throwing a rope around its neck, the other around its rear legs. Once roped the donkey is then stretched between the two horses. Broken bones and death are all too common during these events.





I have received these emails from 2 Van Horn City administrators. I NEED confirmation from Jason as well.
Preparing for the Future with respect for the Past.
Fran Malafronte
City Administrator
Town of Van Horn
T 432-283-2050
F 432-283-2839
The Town of Van Horn has heard the voice of all concerned and has convinced the promoter to cancel the event. Thank you for your concern, but be aware that Van Horn had nothing to do with this event and does not believe in promoting cruelty to animal.
Gilda Morales

I responded to Ms. Morales with the link to the promo poster https://donkeyrescue.donordrive.com/assets/donkeyrescue/images/$cms$/100/1459.jpg CLEARLY indicating that this event was PROUDLY PRESENTED BY THE VAN HORN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND CITY OF VAN HORN TX. CONTINUED ON ANOTHER UPDATE

I want to recommend that Jason Owen be politely encouraged to relinquish the 45+- donkeys to PVDR.

CANCELLED?! Continued from below update

from continued………….I also pointed out that there are photos and video (now password blocked) on http://www.justhorsinaroundphotography.com/p676930534/e17b0fa5e#h17b0fa5e clearing showing
donkeys being roped in Van Horn last July 2011.

I view this as a victory, partially. We need to get these donkeys to Peaceful Valley Donkey Rescue, we need a confirmation and promise from Jason Owen that he will not participate in any other donkey roping event EVER, meaning by purchasing donkeys for or promoting donkeys in a roping event.

Next we need this to stop all over Texas, and any other states that allows it. We need to pressure the law enforcement of Texas to actually enforce statue 42.09 http://donkeyrescue.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=cms.page&id=1122

Cracked Pots



Reading blogs this morning I found this post named Go ahead  select to view and turn up your volume.  “Thinking about how the human body is like a cracked pot to GOD after we have been here on earth a while.”  Trauma (loss, pain, suffering, death, drugs, alcohol, divorce, cancer, car accidents, and family division) can change our beautiful bodies into cracked pots. 

Guess what?  GOD can use a cracked pot to help others as we can all relate to real life issues more than book smart stuff. GOD is amazing!

God in Jesus Christ precious name uses the cracked pots (hurting people who have given their life to Jesus) to spread light to all of his children.  Some of us have physical scars from the trauma we have endured but most just have deep emotional scars from the suffering and loss of this most difficult world we live in. We indeed live in a fallen world but with Jesus life is peaceful and rewarding.  

I say let your light shine through your cracked pot and be a human angel to another living person or animal.  Age has taught me I am not smart enough to handle all of the problems in this world, I submit, I give everything to Jesus.  

Select The bible  to receive a free bible app for your computer or smart phone.  The bible is still my favorite book as GOD is amazing!

All that I am and all that I will become before I leave this human body I give to GOD as Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior.  Please remember how fragile each and every day is; live life humble and grateful for every person and animal that is in our life, as each day is indeed a gift from GOD. God is amazing! 

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!





Faith Is Something We Cannot See, Feel Or Touch


I found this blog and had to share it select A facebook find!

This really got me to thinking this morning when things are really tough in life and I just can’t see the light beyond the darkness I rely on faith from GOD to help me.  Faith is all I had to believe I would not die but live after surviving a life threatening car accident. Faith is what I hang onto when the pain is insane and I can’t take another minute of it, Faith is what I cling to when I cannot understand in my mind how things will work out. Faith is peace for me. 

 “Faith for me is believing (knowing with no doubts) I am GODs child and GOD can restore everything, GOD in Jesus Christ precious name will give me the super natural strength to move forward when my body and mind is broken and crushed.”  GOD is amazing, we must use faith when we cannot see what tomorrow will bring.

GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
