Stamp out Starvation of Horses had a group of UGA students from a community service fraternity come to volunteer at Doris Buckleys barn yesterday. What a delightful group of young people! This group spends time at nursing homes, animal shelters and other places and organizations that are in desperate need of volunteers. It gives me hope for the future.
This is Princess, the horse that was rescued along with the mare who had been ridden with open sores on her back. Cheryl Flanagan and her crew are taking very good care of this shy girl. She already looks a lot better. You can still see the scar on her face where the halter rubbed her raw. Princess is pregnant, and very lucky to have been rescued in time to provide her with the proper care and nutrition to keep her and her baby healthy.
This is a very important warning to horse owners!
