After reading so many horrible stories...... not that this started our happy - but at least a happy ending for people who care and beautiful horses.

A big special thank you to the Carney's for taking in all these horses...and having to contend with a contagious outbreak.

I recall that some very kind volunteers who helped out the horses that night posted comments that they hoped they would be allowed to adopt some of the horses. I'm so happy to read that their hopes have been realized. Best wishes to them for a long and happy relationship with their new companions.

Does anyone know why such very young horses were being sent to slaughter?
Whoever was responsible should at least be neutered!
