Neat program......(tv)
 
Watching KETV (Kentucky public tv channel), they are featuring a great documentary on the racehorse rescue/rehab programs in prisons around the country. VERY good look not just at the programs but at the truth of the industry behind the horses. I knew they had BLM type programs at some prisons and dog rescue/rehab, didn't know about racehorse re-run programs until now (and we live all of about two hours from one of the prisons being featured).
It was really touching to see the healing that the men do for the horses and the horses do for the men. The warden of one program was talking about how his men take their "wages" (15 cents an hour) and use it all to buy treats for the horses from the canteen.
