Gracie is the heart and soul of the Saving Gracie Equine Healing Foundation, which didn’t exist at the time I meet her.
When I first met Gracie she was standing in in several feet of manure in a very small paneled area, along side many other neglected horses. Each dealing with their own state of abuse, injury and malnourishment. Gracie had a long open infected wound on her hind leg. Our visit was being monitored by law enforcement so I begged for them to take her to the Vet. They agreed but someone had to take responsibility for her. I spoke up right away.
When she was released from the hospital, I brought her to a secret place to keep her safe. It took many months for her to heal.
It was a “saving grace” that we were able to save her from that situation. And, that was the beginning of The Saving Gracie Foundation.
