Sharon and daughter, Karen, have adopted a mare and baby, and their neighbor,
Audrey, also adopted a mare and baby.
worst of the lot was Gloria, a 25 year old mare who was literally skin and bones.
Not expected to survive, much less thrive, she arrived at the sanctuary so weak
she could barely walk off the trailer. The driver from Brook Ledge transport had
tears in his eyes as he led her down the ramp.
two months later she has gained 200 pounds and has started galloping madly around
the pasture, bucking and playing like a young filly. Check out the story of Gloria
