It's rare that we successful receive a surrendered horse. But when it happens, it's so much better for the horse. They are in the best health at that moment. Unfortunately, it is the most difficult to find sponsors because the situation isn't as desperate. Fortunately, Joey had Hilma W. in his corner! She helped make it possible for us to give Joey a better transition to his new life!
Joey has made friends here at the sanctuary. We're giving him a rest from his previous work and allowing him to be a horse. Soon, he will be evaluated for his potential for rehoming and his desire to perhaps enter a different line of work.
