Q&A: Eastern Kentucky Free-roaming Horses

Many people are curious about the free-roaming horses in the Appalachian region of Eastern Kentucky. Why are they there? How many? What is KHS doing to help? We explain in this post.

The Kentucky Humane Society Equine C.A.R.E. program assists needy horses throughout Kentucky. Regrettably, we cannot save them all. Earlier this week, we were asked to help an injured mare, but the wound was too severe. She didn’t make it. One of our Equine C.A.R.E. staff tells this poor horse’s story - and how you can help - on our blog.
