Horse Rescue

Last week we got a call from an animal shelter saying that they were gong to put down this four year old, lovely horse. She was terrified of people, was not getting adopted and was out of time, having been at the shelter for two months. We didn’t have room for more horses, but we didn’t want her to be killed, so we rushed down to get her. At first she was very scared and would rear up when we got too close. But we gave her good food, clean water, soft bedding and a warm place to lay her head and by morning she was feeling much better. By the afternoon we were able to hand feed her and softly brush her whole body and scratch her in all the right places. We told her how gorgeous we thought she was and assured her that from now on she would be loved, cherished and adored.

Once she was safe and sound at The Gentle Barn, we started calling sister rescues to see if they had room for a horse that with a bit of time, patience and training would be very adoptable. We found one that said yes! So early this week, Jay drove her to the horse rescue where she would have all the time and space she needs to find her forever home. If you are interested in adopting this beautiful filly, please email us at info@gentlebarn.org.
