UPDATE ON EMMA – THE FILLY THAT WAS SHOT MULTIPLE TIMES

02/23/17 Emma’s bandages are off, staples and stitches are out, and she’s sporting her new socks from Sox For Horses! These socks are a great alternative to bandaging and they’re easy to use and maintain!

In Memory of Eilian

June 2nd, 2016 Today’s voting to win $10K for the horses will done be in memory of Eilian. There are many cases I don’t post about because there is enough sadness on the Internet but I think it’s important for supporters to see how funds help horses and what we do. And, perhaps another horse…
