Review for Our Mims Retirement Haven, Inc., Paris, KY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our Mims Retirement Haven is a home for retired broodmares from the horse racing insdutry, run by Jeanne Mirabito. I had the pleasure of visiting OMRH on May 1, 2011 for a volunteer working lunch. It was without a doubt the best afternoon I've ever spent working! The ladies (as we call the mares) are all "seniors" but you would never know it by looking at them! Eyes are bright, coats are shiny and they are all sweethearts to be around. It was wonderful to have a "hands on" experience with the ladies grooming them and feeding them treats. Jeanne takes excellent care of them on a daily basis. I urge everyone who loves horses and especially thoroughbred racehorses, to consider donating to Our Mims!
