Broken bone; broken heart

Perry was an asset to The PEACH Pit.

One day, someone will create a technology that can fix the broken leg of a horse, so the horse’s humans won’t have a broken heart.

Perry, an off-the-track Thoroughbred, wasn’t supposed to have joined our team; he was sold to someone and then went lame. His partner, Cash, was being donated, and when Perry’s sale fell through, his owner asked if we could take Perry, as well.

Both immediately went to work during a women’s retreat and a trauma-focused training.

Lately, he’s just done horse stuff, grazing in the back pasture with Cash, another off-the-track Thoroughbred, a mini and a few other older horses.

As best as we can figure, the rain we had hoped for may have hurt Perry, the Alpha horse in the pasture. We think he slipped while chasing a horse away from food.

One day, someone will create a technology that can fix the broken leg of a horse, so the horse’s humans won’t have a broken heart.

We’ve lost a team member, and we’re brokenhearted.

We’re a finalist!

Ignoring a broken bone

Posted on Updated on

If your shinbone were sticking out of your leg, would you ignore it? It takes courage to ask for help. Be courageous. #youfirstdemo #firstresponder #eagala
