On May 14, the Kentucky Humane Society's Equine C.A.R.E. team joined the Kentucky State Police (KSP), Kentucky Department of Agriculture (DOA) and Office of the State Veterinarian (OSV) to coordinate the rescue of a large number of horses in Wayne County KY.
Following up on a complaint, the KSP investigated and found four dead horses and over 40 living horses, including many in poor condition and numerous pregnant mares. The KSP and DOA asked KHS to assist them in the rescue.
At just two days old, Owen was left an orphan. Without a mother, the wobbly kneed foal had nowhere to turn. And without proper nutrition and love from his mother, his life was in danger.
