Update on our Recent Case Horses

Last week, the Humane Society of Ventura County took in four neglected horses at our Shelter, located in Ojai. Their conditions have improved dramatically since their arrival, according to HSVC Equine Specialist Christie Tracy. “A whole lot of love and proper feeding goes a long way,” said Tracy. She notes that all four horses are thankful to be here and that they are adjusting to their new surroundings. “The baby is doing great, she is happy to be able to run around and lay out in the sun." After daily bathing, ample water and a proper diet, the most evident change is in the appearance of their coats. Tracy continues, “Caring for these animals who have endured so much at their previous home, knowing that they are getting the best care here, is the most rewarding part of my job.”
