Megan Gebhardt is a fellow REALTOR, a friend, and a huge horse advocate in our community. This abandonment is just the latest to occur in our small community, I believe it, unfortunately, may be just a sample of what is in store for these poor animals and the wonderful people who try to help them.
As economic strings tighten, it is increasingly harder to feed and house large animals and some poor folks are faced with turning their equines loose rather than watch them starve. The sad reality is that these domestics aren't fit for survival in the wild and search and seek out the more familiar habitat of local ranches rather than head for the hills!
As horse owners and animal lovers we are saddened to see these drastic situations. We support the kind generous folks who open their homes and hearts to these four footed unfortunate souls.
