Just a question, not related to the OP statement, but was wondering: I just came across an FB link, via a video I liked & sent to my sister, from a horse rescue called LEARN Horse Rescue, non-profit organization.
I was wondering if this is a large, well organized rescue operation, seemingly one of very few, that is doing a good thing. Does anyone know of this organization? Not that I'm looking to adopt from them or anyone else, but the site looked like something good to like-follow, just for interest.
A number of years ago I volunteered for a short time at a very small rescue not far from where I lived. The place was a shambles & obviously operating on a shoestring, but the people involved were doing everything they could to care for the (10, as I recall) horses on the property. Food was good, supplements for elder care provided, farrier care, vet care, dentistry. I din't see that anyone ws in a hurry to rehome any of the horses, but they were certainly being taken care of. One of my jobs, besides helping to feed/muck/water was to walk a blind old gelding, because he liked being handwalked by a human (while his barn buddy followed closely behind). Was this typical of a small rescue place? I've long wondered how all fared.
