Lacey Finds a Home

Lacey enjoying Spring grass

Lacey, the OTTB mare who has been here since December, has found a home with a wonderful woman in Colorado.  If all goes as planned, Lacey will be leaving here on Monday morning to start her new life.

I agreed to board Lacey here after she was rescued (for a second time) from an auction in central Kansas.  She had been rescued once before, and adopted out to a fellow who sent her to another auction.  Thankfully, someone who knew of her was able to purchase her from the man who was going to send her to slaughter . . . 
Another Colorado woman who has worked to help place other OTTBs, presented Lacey's need to a friend there who is a hunter/jumper trainer with a few students.  Lacey will be loved and trained, gently and firmly and consistently . . . What more can we ask for our horses?


  1. Awww, I'm glad she finally found a good home... I can't believe one of her former adopters sent her to slaughter again!! Grrrrrr.

  2. She looks very happy there. Thank you for saving her!


Thank you for connecting with me by sharing your thoughts . . . it's one way friendships grow!
