In Memory Of
Ebony came to us on March 29, 2017 and past on April 23, 2017... We rescued Ebony from Etters, PA - Shows you what is happening right in our back yards! Ebony was originally purchased from the Lewisberry Wild Wild West Day 25-30 years ago. Her owner had her the whole time until she passed 2-3 years ago - the owners son moved into the woman's home and never fed or attended to Ebony. A wonderful neighbor called us as soon as he saw our Central PA Horse Rescue signs. The neighbor saved her! The neighbor snuck grain and hay over to her while the man was not home. She had no safe shelter and a small area to live in which was swampy due to a creek running through it - but at least she had water. We rushed over with food that very same afternoon, got ahold of the owners daughter who said she was always forbidden to go the property by her brother. She allowed us access to come and rescue Ebony. I believe Ebony waited every single day for her rescue team to come - when we did - she came to live at the rescue and made many friends. She probably thought she died and went to heaven upon her arrival. She lived with us for almost a month and then she quietly passed one evening - and we found her peacefully gone in her brand new shed. Rest in Peace our Dear Ebony! Our hearts were broken. She is buried here at Central PA Horse Rescue to live forever - her forever home.
Rosie came to us on May 13, 2017. Central PA Horse Rescue received a call from a niece about her uncles horses that were in poor condition and ask if we could save them.
They lived in Bedford, PA - 2 1/2 hours away from us. We went the following weekend to rescue Rosie, Josie and their little buddy Smokey.
Both girls were in poor condition. They were living on a swampy pasture where we went into water to our knees.. Never having their feet done and living in a swamp left the Rosie and Josie with the worst feet we have ever seen. neither could walk without severe pain.
Living on pain meds the entire time - On August 31, 2017 Rosie just couldn't do it anymore... The pain meds were not working. We had to relieve her pain and allow the vet to come and put her to rest. Our hearts were broken. She is buried here at Central PA Horse Rescue to live forever - her forever home.
Josie came to us on May 13, 2017 until today - January 25, 2018
With Josie's back feet of walking on her fetlocks rather than her hoofs, the ligaments just started tearing more in a few days that we had no choice once again to allow her to be pain free.
The girls are together running with new legs and feet! Rest in peace my sweet Josie!
Our hearts were broken. She is buried here at Central PA Horse Rescue to live forever - her forever home.
