I am so excited for my friend and attorney, Scott Beckstead. He has just been offered the career of a lifetime (well it is to me and HIM). He will be the Director of a new horse sanctuary being set up by the Humane Society of the United States. The sanctuary is located just outside of Roseburg, OR on an 1120 acre property that is an absolute paradise. They will take in a large number of PMU mares from Canada who were rescued as they were being shipped to slaughter, as well as a couple dozen mustangs. These horses will live on the property for the rest of their lives. After that, they will take in needy horses on a case by case basis, with the hope of rehabilitating them and finding them loving homes. I can’t begin to tell you the chills of joy that I feel for him and his family. They have dedicated their lives to the care of unwanted animals – especially horses – and this opportunity is well deserved. My deepest congratulations to them!

It will make you very angry that the practice continues across the country. Hot flashes are indeed unpleasant, but what is done to these magnificent creatures is criminal.
