The breeder's parents, living in Canada, needed care and the horses needed to be cared for because the Florida farm was being sold. There are many good Thoroughbred owners who care about their horses life beyond the track. She knew other owners who have sent horses to SaveTheHorses and knew they would never end up in slaughter if sent here.
We agreed to take Rose-A-Day and and Blazing Chief, along with another Thoroughbred mare, Lovely Timber, who is adopted. It's been 4 years and we are still caring for Rose-A-Day and Blazing Chief. We desperately need to find a sanctuary farm for the horses that may never be adopted. There are many, some older, some injured, some blind, some just so fear trained, it is heartbreaking to know their horror stories are not fiction but true and their distress was caused by humans. All these horses trust other horses, some may never trust humans and we understand that and will never let them get hurt again. The only way to keep that promise is to keep them under our care and watchful eye.
|Rose-A-Day and Chief are always together. Both 20 years old and best friends forever!|
When we have a sanctuary, we will have space to say 'yes' to more needy horses. We are planning to make this dream come true in 2017. Please be part of this venture and help us SaveTheHorses.
Think about 'Joining The Herd' and make a monthly donation of any amount. It all adds up to saving horses lives.
Thank you for your continued support and your compassion.
