Baby Piper

As a follow up to my previous post, here is a pic of Piper when she was brought from the PMU farm in Canada to Equine Voices Sanctuary in October 2007.

She was only 6 months old when she made the trip from Canada to Arizona with a load of other mares and foals who had been saved from going to slaughter. The "105" that is shaved on her side was her "auction" number. We don't know what happened to her mother.

She spent six months at Equine Voices Sanctuary before she found me. :) As you have already seen from the previous pics, she is growing into a beautiful little horse. She is smart and willing to learn and easy to work with. She has been a great addition to our ranch! And to think that she might not have been here at all...

If you're not familiar with the plight of the PMU mares and foals, visit the Equine Voices website at http://www.equinevoices.org/ for information.

Oh that is so awesome you rescued this beautiful animal! What I would give to be able to live out on a horse ranch somewhere. I think I was a western cowgirl in a previous life lol lol. SO out of my element in New England.
Have a great evening

Oh, you have a Piper too! She looks gorgeous. I have a yearling filly called Piper, but she's small and hairy, not as elegant as your girl. ( but still a star!)
