Since being rescued from slaughter in 2000, Pearl has been living at Double L Stable Equine Rescue and Sanctuary in Argyle, NY. Pearl, the oldest rescue at the ranch, is thought to be 50 years old, according to 2 different vets and a dentist. She spent most of her life plowing for the Amish and then learned to do all kinds of new things in her golden years.

Shannon Hahn, director of Double L said, “Keeping a 50 yr. old mule going is not an easy task, but the vet says she is doing fine.” This year’s summer card drive fundraiser is in honor of her. Please send her a birthday card with a single $1 bill tucked inside. We only request a $1, but anything at all is helpful–feel free to send more if you like. Feed coupons, gift cards and Nutrena feeds tags all are great.

The cards will be hung in the barn and the gifts go toward the care of the horses (in the summer months the rescue goes through 50lbs of feed a day!).  Cards can be mailed to Pearl c/o Double L Stable Equine Rescue and Sanctuary, 9 Tilford Road, Argyle, NY 12809.  Pearl’s birthday celebration is tentatively scheduled for  the fall at the rescue’s annual Open House.
