The horses are worth it
Editor, The News:
Re: Fighting for a horse's life (The News, Nov. 17).
Just two weeks ago, I trimmed this horse's feet.
Julie MacMillan called me and said she had just received a couple of horses that were in dire need of a foot trim and she couldn't get a hold of her usual farrier.
That's when I met Drifter. He was a lovable, friendly guy. Even though his back leg was swollen from a previous injury, he tried his best to pick up his feet so I could trim them.
All he wanted was someone to love him, someone for him to love.
Ms. MacMillan works hard at helping horses that would otherwise be sent to slaughter.
She receives no government help and relies on donations and the money she earns from her job to provide feed and shelter for these horses.
More often than not, the money is coming from her own pocket.
I am urging the public to please donate money or supplies to help her improve her facilities and to provide feed and other essential services for the horses.
It is hard to do it alone and any help would be appreciated.
The horses are worth it.
