Darby Joe is currently in pasture.
He had been collected along with several others for his meat. While unimaginable, it is true. Most of the horses had at one time been race horses, once injury, speed, or in one case neurological issues prevented them from running, they were… “collected” with the intention of selling them directly to the kill buyer. They were also starved in the meantime, their very basic needs completely ignored.Today they are thriving, Austin has been adopted and is adored by Dena, some are being retrained for their second chances, others are enjoying pasture life. Darby Joe, is thriving living in a herd, but thoroughly enjoyed his wellness check and grooming session when the Red Riding Hoods visited pasture, armed with grooming totes and carrots. His life, once perilous and tragic, is now safe, content, and peaceful. His beauty and silly personality has always delighted us, but perhaps most rewarding is HIS happiness.
