Equine Second Chance

Kathy and I visited the farm with sixty abused or abandoned horses. We took a bag of apples which was appreciated by the horses. We met Chance, the namesake for the farm and Chief a paint turned over to the farm by his owners. They said they couldn't afford to have him treated after he got tangled in barbed wire. A handsome bay 17 hands high will go to W. Virginia as a jumper early this month. The pictures of this horse before coming to Second Chance were shocking. He was all bones.

Warren and I plan to attend the Lippizan Stallions at WCU on January 15. We never thought we'd have the opportunity in the mountains.

I'm so happy someone is rescuing horses and helping find homes for them. I still want to go out there sometime.
Is this a non-profit group? How do they afford all the expense of taking care of these horses?

We saw the white stallions some years ago and it was a fabulous show. I was amazed. I hope to see them again one day.
When will they be at WCU?
