Harmony Equine Center receives unprecedented number of starving horses

June 20, 2019

The Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center has received another 36 neglected horses from the Custer County Sheriff’s Office. This is on the heels of the 49 malnourished horses Harmony recently received from the Colorado Department of Agriculture.

The 36 Arabians from the Custer County case included stallions, pregnant mares and newborn foals. The horses’ health is being monitored very closely and all are eating and drinking well.

Receiving 85 starved horses in the last two months is unprecedented for Harmony. Communities are recognizing vulnerable and at-risk horses and no longer accepting this type of neglect, and Harmony is helping more horses than ever.
