Simply rescuing horse is not enough. It never will be. I remember a blog penned by a vet working in the small animals world, and his words have stuck with me the last year or so, and that was that we simply cannot sanctuary or rescue our way out of the issues animals in need face.
We have to be proactive and create real, lasting change.
The time seems right, and I suspect awesome change is on the horizon. I am finally seeing a small turn in the tide in the horse community. There are groups and organizations now having conversations beyond straight forward “pick up, rehab and house” approach; the horse industry seems willing, interested and open to the conversation, though we certainly will not agree on everything.
