Hope is one of our first rescues. She was a nurse mare foal from the racing industry. She was adopted out to a family that kept her in their house. As she grew larger they had to find a new home for her and its unclear where she went from there. We do know that she was kept in a dog kennel for sometime which I am sure is not a place for a horse. She then went to two other families and neither could keep her for several reasons. When my daughter and I went to pick her up she was very unsure what was going on. She kicked out at us and played a good game as I like to say! She soon realized we weren’t going to hurt her and she gladly jumped in the trailer where she found security, love, and HAY ! I would say the hay sealed the deal!
