Our fosters come to us through many ways.
They are the sole reason we can hold 150% more horses than our main facility is capable of at any given time.
Our fosters mean around 100 more horses are rescued each year.
AJ reached out about 6 years ago when her favorite stallion had to be euthanized after a horrible illness. She wanted to help. She has grown up in a situation where she saw a lot of Tennessee Walking Horses sored, and she wanted to be of use in saving horses.
It started with holding one gelding, then two, then pregnant mares, followed by youngsters and newly gelded guys.
She has her first foster still, as he was aged and not really very adoptable. He is probably into his 30s, Lannister.
She fosters 4 to 5 at any given time these days.
It makes the most amazing difference for horses to be in a relaxed environment with one on one care.
It has sure meant the world to Rizzo, pictured here today. She will foal anytime in the next few days. She has blossomed there.
Thank you to those who give by opening their barns and fields to horses in need of fostering.
