We actually paid money to save Apollo from the meat proveur. He was up for sale and when no one was interested in purchasing him the auction house was going to send him off to be processed. He was an older horse but he had the kindest eye and it seemed a shame to have such a beautiful animal shipped off to the slaughter house - so we paid to keep him alive. He is a lovely horse with such a nice temperment; we have had the pleasure of taking him on a couple of trail rides just to get him out of the paddock and to stretch his legs- He always wants to please and I'm sure he has some sense that we saved him and is just happy to be a part of our family now.
Kali has been with us since the summer of 2006, she goes lame in her front with no warning or obvious reason. Her previous owner loved her and tried to get her properly diagnosed in order to treat her and hopefully correct the problem. Kali had been given the very best care her owner could afford. Her owner did everything she could for her, however the cost of her care and upkeep became too much of a financial burden for her. She had to make the painful decision to give her up. It was an emotional day for everyone when Kali arrived here at the farm; you could tell that it was breaking her owners heart to see her go and Kali knew something was up. Kali is up for adoption to the right home, she needs a home that can provide the proper care that she requires and someone that can continue the search to find out what the root of her problem is.
