L.E.A.R.N. Horse Rescue
A 501(c)3 non-profit
all-volunteer horse rescue organization
L.E.A.R.N. Horse Rescue is an all-volunteer organization, with no paid staff positions.
Since L.E.A.R.N.’s founding in 2009, we have successfully rescued, rehabilitated, retrained and re-homed over 300 previously neglected horses.
On May 29th we took in two horses, Spirit and Bailey, who were 2 of 25 starving horses from a cruelty and neglect case being worked on by Valiant Animal Rescue.
Spirit is an 10 year old chestnut grade quarter horse mare and she was a 1 on the Henneke scale. She required iv fluids upon arrival at LEARN and her condition was guarded. Bailey is a grade 15 year old Buckskin mare who was heavy in foal when she arrived, was a 3 on the Henneke scale and her condition was fair.
Heartbreakingly, Bailey miscarried her foal a week after her arrival at the rescue. Our vet believes the foal contracted equine rhinopneumonhitis because Bailey had not received necessary vaccines. He was approximately 30 days early and perfectly beautiful, a buckskin like his precious mom. We tried our best, gave our all, and prayed for a different outcome. Bailey's foal is buried at our main farm with others who have crossed the rainbow bridge.
Spirit and Bailey have been with us for almost two months now and are responding well to our refeeding program. Both mares are very bright and alert and they are quick to whinny a welcome when we arrive.
Thank you for walking this journey with them, with us, and sharing your love. We cannot continue this mission without your support. Please donate towards their continued care if you are able or come visit and donate your time!
Regardless of the amount, your donation to LEARN Horse Rescue will help provide much needed
