Day 2

The horses began arriving at Keno Hills around 12:30 on March 12. Our welcoming committee helped the poor horses off the trailer and into a small holding area where they started to halter, delouse and number horses. A total of 97 horses had arrived by 5:30 that evening and by the end of the day only 27 of the horses were caught, the others too mistrustful to catch at this time. The horses were fed hay and left to relax and calm down after their stressful trailer ride. The horses had ongoing supervision throughout the night to ensure that everyone was doing okay. We are going to need a lot of volunteers to help us rehabilitate these animals.
