ASPCA Grant Awarded to Help with ISPMB Seizure Costs
As most of you know, Gentle Spirit Horses has been working hard after taking in 17 unhandled, thin, wormy mustangs from the ISPMB neglect and seizure situation in Lantry, SD this fall, which amounted to a 50% increase in horses in our care at our South Dakota location.

The lovely sorrel mare gave me a moment today that reminded us WHY we do this and a reminder of why we have a policy of treating each horse individually.
Welcome the Lucky 8 from the ISPMB Seizure

Bless the Broodies
May is Mother's Day month! Broodmares are one of the most needy horses - desired, loved, needed while they could have babies; often not trained, then when they are no longer needed or when breeders stop breeding they have no choices or options. Your support lets us help broodmares either retire or be trained for a new career and learn love for who they are and not just the babies they produce.
