Horses of Spirit Run Sanctuary

Not all horses that come to us can be re-homed and those horses become part of our sanctuary.  Most sanctuary members are here with us because they are hard keepers due to age, retirees, which makes it difficult to find adequate homes.  But not all!  We also have sanctuary members that have physical issues that require special environments to keep them safe.

Grace

Little Grace was discarded at an auction, blind, afraid and in pain from pressure due to glaucoma.  She was lucky to have been seen by the auction owner an pulled from harms way.  We were contacted and asked if we could help, so our journey with Grace began.

After traveling to a specialist to have her eyes examined we were left with only one option, to have both eyes removed.  Grace's left eye had recessed and left her susceptible to cancer, the right eye was extremely enlarged due to glaucoma and painful due to pressure.  

When I first met Grace her fear was very obvious.  She was in survival mode!  She had no idea where she was, just that they were taking care of her, she could not see new things in her environment as they changed but yet when I put my hands on her and spoke to her, she responded with hope.  Her body language was guarded but willing.  She needed a safe place and we had hoped to give her that.  As we traveled by trailer to meet with the vets and have exams Grace did everything that I had asked.  She loaded into the trailer, stood tied wonderfully, it was obvious to me that at some point she was loved and appreciated. . .  it was time to give that back to her.
