Eastern Pennsylvania Horse Community
Respond To Urgent Call
I have a client that moved from another state into a rental house while searching for a property in the area. The family horse was boarded at a private farm near the rental house.
The family visit the horse almost daily, working with her and also helping the farm owner out from time to time.
The family noticed that their horse was losing weight at the farm, which was very unusual. This horse is an easy keeper. She looks at food and gains weight. The horse also was not acting as her usual self. The family noticed that the farm owner’s horse had lost weight, too. Something didn’t seem right.
The one morning, the farm owner’s horse was found dead in the pasture. The owner claimed that lightning had struck it during the overnight storm.
At that point, local horse people opened up to my clients and urged them to move their horse ASAP. The situation there was not a good one. Others that had boarded their horses at the farm in the past said the horses were not taken care of, to put it mildly.
My clients asked me for help, at which time I reached out to the horse community here in Eastern Pennsylvania. A temporary place was needed for this horse and it needed to be moved ASAP.
The response I had gotten was amazing!! Over 30 horse people responded. All willing to help, offering places from pasture board to stalls that had opened up on various properties.
I am happy to say that this horse has been moved to a better facility, where she will be certainly cared for.
A HUGE THANK YOU goes out to the horse community in Eastern Pennsylvania!! I can honestly say, in times of need, the horse community here will reach out and help in any way they can.
