Updates transferred over from WindChill posts

August 30th, 10:25am: Good morning everyone – where does the time go! Been too long since we’ve sat down and had coffee together, hasn’t it? For the past couple of days I’ve been working more on the WindChill Legacy sites, adding to the blog, and posting pictures, etc. I’m trying to upload more of the BBQ today, hit a snag in the upload feature which had delayed some of those posts but it’s fixed and I’m starting to get more of them up there. Remember we’re doing the Windchill posting on the official blog so I won’t be saying as much about him here. This is just a place for us to hang out, have a steaming cup of coffee together – if you’re so inclined light up a cigar and just relax and watch the world race by.

I do want to bring to your attention that this morning we launched a section on the official WindChill blog that’s about YOU. It’s called “Hoofprints in the Snow…My Story.” A number of Windchill family have been kind enough to tell us their story. Here’s my post from the Windchill forum announcing the new section:

Hi herd!

As most of you have probably gathered from my posts – I’m more interested in and fascinated with your stories — how you chose your forum names, what brought you here, who you are as individuals (as well as what made you part of this herd of course!). I’ve always felt that WindChill’s story, and now this Legacy that you’ve all become a part of, is not about any one person – certainly not about me – there are others more worthy and deserving of being considered a ‘hero’. People like you. I see my role as encouraging you ‘the herd’, supporting the Legacy and shining light on all of you quiet heroes out there. Quietly, without regard for yourself or fame or glory you are rescuing cats, dogs, horses and other animals. You are opening your homes and your hearts to less fortunate beings and you’ve asked for nothing in return – yet received the love of a being who probably had no hope before you came along. I want to tell your stories.

This morning we launch a section on the official WCL blog site called “Hoofprints in the Snow…My Story.” Several weeks ago I asked a gentleman who has become a very good friend, Mr. John Henderson (the man who introduced us to another equine friend, Rowdy) if he would be willing to share his story. His constant emails of encouragement and support have been a source of strength through good and bad times.

John’s is the first story we tell. Others will be following. Will yours be one of those? I hope it is. If you’re willing to tell us your story please email either Kathi or myself and tell us. If you have a picture, send it along. If you don’t have a scanner, you can mail it to me and I’ll scan it at the office.

You can email us at: info@thewindchilllegacy.org

I hope you all enjoy this new section – I know I will, I love learning about you – the WindChill family.

Your friend and admirer,

Jeff

July 9th, 1:15pm: WOOHOO! After several weeks in the making, we are pleased to announce the first phase of WindChill’s website, the official website of The WindChill Legacy, Ltd.! The site is located at:

TheWindChillLegacy.org

A very special thank you goes out to Heather for her hard work on this site. She took the outline of what we wanted and turned it into art on the screen and she’s amazing. Obviously there’s a number of areas still under development – this will be a work in progress, just as it has been. This is the first phase of the website, the second phase is being worked on by a separate development team and the third phase (being worked on concurrently but will take a bit longer) is being worked on by a separate team yet.  Thanks to everyone involved and again, thank you to Heather for capturing what we hope is the spirit of WindChill on screen.

June 30th, 8:40pm: Since the Legacy website hasn’t launched yet, I’ll post it here – we are very pleased to announce that Oregon artist and animal rescue advocate Deborah Sprague has accepted our invitation to join the board of directors. Deb joins our other board members – Gary Niemi, Polly Niemi, Kathi Davis, Barb Caskey, Paula Moore and myself (Jeff Tucker) in our mission to fight equine neglect and we’re honored to work with such a diverse group of individuals committed to this cause. Welcome Deb!
