Four Rescued Thoroughbreds!
In Spring Hill's care, they will receive nutritional support, with a careful diet designed so that safely put back on weight. They will receive all of the veterinary care they need - including treatment for painful ulcers on their skin from untreated infections, worms, and likely gastric ulcers, caused from starvation. We estimate the costs for their first two months in rehabilitation will be several thousand dollars.
We know you care about animals just as much as we do; and we, and the hundreds of horses we have rescued and rehabiliated, It takes a community to save these animals, and we have you to thank for your kind support of the many gentle spirits who have come through our barn doors. Please help us bring 4 more back to their former majestic selves! Thank you!
Our little Kate, the tiny Morgan filly we rescued last November, is pretty suspicious of these new horses! Kate, who was so shy; now has the confidence to "guard" her hay from these new horses in her herd! We thinks it's quite funny. They just look at her strangely and move to the other pile of hay. They know there's enough to go around! But poor Kate, she still worries about her hay.
We can't investigate animal cruelty complaints, or provide a safe haven to abused and neglected animals without your help. You keep our barn doors open and the hay plentiful for the abused and neglected animals we take in. So please consider a donation!
Jack Thurston of WPTZ/NECN came down today to cover this story. Thanks Jack for spending a cold, wet day out on the farm with us!
We are researching their race records. Sadly, three of them together earned over $100,000 on the track. They deserve a dignified, kind retirement. They have taken the first step, at our rescue.
