We have Seven More Horses in for Rehabilitation

It's official, my barn is completely full to capacity with the seven new horses that just moved in.

These horses were in a hell of a mess and really needed some help.

With every rescue case I am involved in, I learn new things.

With every case I think, "Okay, now I've seen it all." Every time, I'm wrong.

There is always something new that I hadn't seen before.

And this is it. A Henneke Body Scale 1 that is still alive. Wow.

I've rescued a lot of horses in my lifetime, so many that I've lost count but I'm sure it's over 200. Never EVER have I seen a horse be as grateful and actually show their graditude like these did. It moved me like nothing has ever mooved me before. One mare, after being moved into my arena acutally walked up to me and layed down right there in front of me. If I hadn't stepped back she would have been laying on my feet. She just layed there and looked at me and if she could talk I swear she'd be saying, "Thank you so much for getting us out of there."


Anonymous said... are a SAINT. I just found out about your latest rescue. Shelby & I will be up this weekend to help and bring supplies from your list. I ask anyone that can donate time, labor, supplies to help with these horses. Jamie has done more to change the policy's about livestock neglect & abuse in this county than anyone. Please help her rescue efforts with these horses. Tom & Molly St.Hilaire
