Second chances can’t happen without donations. We receive no tax-payer support. 100% of your donation pays for feed and care of each horse.
Both Gracie and Justice have overcome such hardships and have gained hundreds of pounds, regained healthy coats and feet. We are happy to report they are in great shape and soon available for adoption!
August 18, 2022, we accepted two starvation cases seized by County Animal Control. we named the bay mare Gracie and the chestnut gelding Justice. Weak, malnourished and suffering from rain rot, we had them vet checked and put them on a carefully planned refeeding program. We follow the University of Kentucky’s program which has been successful.
Refeeding a starved horse is an expensive endeavor. High quality alfalfa is part of the program and one of the most expensive cost components. Each horse consumes over $18 per day in feed and hay - three times what a healthy horse consumes.
We are thrilled to announce that Justice
Justice was a severe starvation case that took many months to recover. His refeeding program, continual care and handling, helped him overcome so many issues.
What an incredible soul emerged after such a tragic beginning. Justice is now healthy, happy and continues to be a volunteer favorite.
Gracie was a starvation case that was seized by Animal Control. Her condition was dire.
Our Gracie morphed into such a beauty. We are so proud of her transition and is available for her new home.
