Review for Missouri Forget-Me-Not Horse Rescue And Sanctuary, Linn Creek, MO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have always loved horses...think that I was born with this love. Many, many years ago I volunteered at a local animal shelter and starting answering calls from people wanting to report abuse or neglect of a horse. I knew that there had to be somewhere or someone locally that could help these horses, but unfortunately there was not. I vowed that if, as an adult, I was ever able to move back to the country I would try to help at least one horse have a better life. Well, we moved and one horse led to another and another. Sad stories from people no longer able to care for their horse pets, horses neglected and starved.....all of this came to me and the more I delved into it the more shocked and the more my heart hurt. That was 18 years ago and now we have about 120 horses under our care, operate a volunteer only organization that has helped and rehomed hundreds of horses. I am so grateful to have found friendship with other horse loving people that help me and our board keep this going. We love the horse.....don't care how old, how sick ......we love them unconditionally and that is why we wake up every morning and care for them, feed and water them, brush them, and give them the love that some have never had. We want to make their time with us the best times of their life and to those that are adopted into their own forever homes, we send our best wishes to them and our heart is full that we did what we were all meant to do. At this point in my life I am often reminded that not only do we save the horses that need a helping hand and a soft place to land, but I think that they, in turn, save us!
