an email came in today…

Hi Jon,

I was browsing the available horses at the kill broker lot in PA that are heading on a slaughter truck on friday and a registered morgan mare named Rusty Sunshine has shown up there this week. I googled her name in hopes of finding some additional info on her and kept getting directed to your blog where I wasn’t able to find a picture or anything specific other than a reference to Rusty Sunshine’s barn.

If you are a previous owner of a mare named Rusty Sunshine, can you give me any information on her? Reason for selling? Did she have any lameness or health issues with you? What did you do with her? How is she under saddle? They say she pulls a cart… did you ever do that with her? If you are interested in contacting the rescue group that is trying to get her into a home before the truck heads out on Friday I can help you do that.

If you are not a previous owner of this mare, I’m sorry for contacting you…

Thanks,
Karla

Dear Karla,

Rusty Sunshine is a man, an old one that still gets up in the morning and heads off to do manual labor. He’s got horses, but he’s smarter than even the best of them.

You might also find his name in a poem by Jimmy Santiago Baca, a description of the light falling across a room. Baca was a runaway from an orphanage who went to prison at a young age and came out a poet.

Your email is a beautiful thing, an epic poem off the cuff. I can’t tell you anything about the Morgan who holds the same name, but it is a powerful name and I appreciate all your efforts to keep her alive. Let me know if there is some way to help. Thank you.

mr. rolston
