Sprite and Mystery

Sprite, a miniature horse, was found abandoned in a state park here in Kentucky, heavy in foal. Mystery was born shortly after Sprite's arrival at the KyEHC. THey were the center of attention, every free moment by both volunteers and employees were spent sitting in Sprite's pen with Mystery laying in their laps. They were adopted together and are now companion ponies!

Studio 54, one of our sweet Thoroughbred mares, is going to Park Equine Hospital in Versailles for further treatment of her sarcoids.

Studio came to the Center a year ago via one of our strong supporters, Thoroughbred Charities of America (TCA), as one of the herd seized from Charles Borell and his daughter, former trainer, Maria Borell. At the time of her arrival, she had very sizeable growths called sarcoids behind her jaw, along her neck, and in the vicinity of the jugular vein. This location is very problematic for treatment.

Over the past year, she has been treated by Hagyard Equine Medical Institute and Park Equine Hospital, and is now embarking on a critical path that we hope will get her to the adoptable stage. She will be undergoing topical chemotherapy through a regimen that is not widely available in the United States. At this point, we are unsure of the outcome, but of course are hoping for the best. Posted here are current pictures of her sarcoids.

Studio has a challenging road ahead of her and we could use your help. If you would like to donate to her care and that of her field mates, please click on the following link.
Please make a note that your donation is for Studio.

We will keep you up to date on her progress, and thank you for your interest and care!

STUDIO is HOME!!! Check back for updates on her progress and current pictures.

The KyEHC is a tranquil 70+ acre farm and safe haven for equines in need. Our horses come from a variety of backgrounds. Some arrive here surrendered by their owners and others have been rescued from abuse and neglect. Once healed and (re)schooled these wonderful horses are available for adoption to become someone's best friend and partner.

Our Mission Statement is:
​To provide humane treatment and shelter while working to seek adoptive homes and provide second chances for Kentucky's equines, regardless of breed.To educate the public and raise awareness for responsible equine ownership so that fewer horses end up in crisis.To work with and serve as a model for organizations with the same mission in other states: to save America's equines from inhumane treatment.

Help. Heal. Home.
