Horses in Great Need

Right now the HSUS has a seizure pending in Lincoln Co.
The horse is going to have a blood panel to be sure it can
be saved at all.

Assuming the horse can be, there is a need for a foster home
for this horse.

I have a potential volunteer, but I would like to find a few more,
just in case.


Second issue, there is a 16 yr old Standardbred gelding, who is supposed to
be well mannered, that was essentially abandoned by his owner in Logan Co.,
and the girl keeping the horse cannot afford to winter him. He is supposed to be
thin. He would be free to a good home. Transport is possible.

Here is what the girl says about him:

"This is from the girl who has him now:

"hes broke. he's had a lot of trail miles on him. I've know a lot of his previous owners, so he's been traded and sold a lot. he needs a advanced rider who has soft hands cause he seems to have a very s...ensitive mouth. his wolf teeth might bother him or his teeth need floated."
I am waiting on photos of both of these horses and more information.



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."
