Habitat for Horses received the call from Louisiana on Thursday, June 7 2007 about an injured mare in desperate need of special care. She had been dragged behind a trailer and badly hurt.As the trip started Saturday further details came trickling in. When found the mare was wearing a halter wrapped in barbed wire. She also had a hole than ran straight through her nose all the way through her sinus cavity presumably from impact with the trailer and of course her hooves had been worn down by the road.

We all began to marvel at the fact that this little mare had made it this far…we had no idea how far she’d really come.

I think your last statement is the bottom line. If we don't speak up, who will? I mutst wonder about the people who witnessed this abuse and did nothing. How can they live with themselves?

Here is one way to help with Naysa, the court date is coming up this summer. Almost 3,000 signatures. Keep them coming!


Stand proud of what we do and call for the criminal prosecution of those who purposely abuse animals. Speak loudly for those who cannot speak for themselves.

This is an unbeblievable story. How can members here help ensure that justice will be served?
