Sole survivor needs help!

On Friday the 13th of December at, or around, 3:00am a semi truck struck four horses wandering about Hwy. 3 in Poulsbo WA. No one knows what they were doing on the Hwy or how they had slipped out of the pasture. There was no faulty fencing, there was no open latch, no gate left undone, still there were no people watching at 3:00am; we may never know how they found their way to the highway. What we do know is as simple as it is horrible, when struck three of the four horses were killed with only one surviving the accident. The surviving horse was rushed to Sound Equine where he is now stable. There was no wrong doing on the part of the driver, thankfully he was not injured in the ordeal. I can only imagine the horror he experienced.


There was no wrong doing on the part of the horse owner. I can not begin to imagine the grief and sorrow they are experiencing.


We are a small community, an even smaller horse community. News of the accident spread through Facebook like wildfire and the owners were found. Soon we were all offering to help, which is where this page comes in.


The owners are a nice family that loves their horses, this horse is in for a long recovery. He is stable, still he was hit by a semi truck. His recovery is going to be costly and long. We want to help. You can donate to his care, his recovery, by contacting Sound Equine (http://www.soundequinevet.com/) directly, alternatively you can donate here through this page.


The tragedy of this situation is bigger than my words at the moment. To face this alone would simply further the tragedy for this family. Anything you can do to help would be so very appreciated.


We will continue to update the page with progress and thank everyone for all the love and support already shown.
