Let’s help Butterscotch!

Posted on April 26th, 2014 in Stories




When I was reading Huffington Post this morning, I saw this story of a pony backing her foal in a corner during a barn fire and shielding her with her own body to save her and bawled.




Since then, I’ve become addicted to their Facebook page and been watching the updates on Butterscotch and her mom, Bella, after the owners surrendered them to the shelter.  On top of donating my own money, I’ll send a free autographed book of Blue Mermaid or a personal painting of a horse to anyone who sends them a donation!  Let’s help Butterscotch and Bella heal up and go back to prancing in a brand new barn!


Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!

    So sweet…it’s important to care about animals and humans as well, I don’t think we do enough of that in the world. People sometimes only care about animals or only about humans and we have a duty to care about all living creations & take care of each other. So sweet xx
