To anyone who has worked with Miniature horses, it’s no surprise that these little horses can have mighty big personalities.
This is especially true with Henry, Maggie and Hope.
These three “minis,” as Miniature horses are often called, were more than a handful. These horses had never been trained, and after their owner died, they were taken in by another relative. Vanessa and her boyfriend had no experience with horses, but they loved their uncle, and they wanted to try to take care of the minis in honor of him.
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.
The Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS), the only globally recognized organization providing standards for identifying legitimate animal sanctuaries, awarded Accredited status to the Kentucky Humane Society Equine C.A.R.E. Program as of June 20, 2019.
The Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) has announced a new project to help keep owned horses out of risk and in their homes. The project is funded by a $50,000 grant from the ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals).
