SpiritAcres is a place that serves as a haven for horses in need. It is run by Kat, who has the heart and determination and resoursefulness to accomplish this great task. I have been there myself and have toured the place with Kat. I've seen the horses and have met some volunteers. SpiritAcres is definately a place that our area needs. Texans have horses...that's a fact. However, some people obtain this great animal without the understanding and knowlege needed for the responsibility. Unfortunately, often times, horses are abandoned, mistreated, starved, even purposely severely abused. In those cases, if the horse is blessed, it is rescued and can go to SpiritAcres. This is an endeavor that I support, though not nearly enough, with enthusiasm.
Kat and Spirit Acre Farms is awesome! Abandoned and neglected horses find a loving, caring home there...Kat works extremely hard to help these horses get healthy, put on weight, and find new homes. Horses do so much for us- they deserve our support!
I first became aware of Spirit Acres in 2006 when, due to financial problems, I had to give up 2 of my family's horses. It was a very hard decision but after visiting the farm and meeting Kat, president of Spirit Acres, our decision was a little easier. While our loved ones were awaiting forever homes we visited them often. We were always welcomed and Kat always had stories for us such as who their new friends were, how they all got along, when they had their feet done, what the vet said about them, who liked a stall and who didn't, etc. The volunteers at the farm were also very helpful. Kat found wonderful homes for our horses and we even visited them at their new homes and were able to see how happy both human and animal were. Without Kat and Spirit Acres I can only imagine what might have happened to our horses. My family and I have been volunteers since. All the horses there are very well taken care of. The volunteers at the farm obviously enjoy their work and love the animals. This farm Absolutely deserves this award.
