It was Friday afternoon (Feb. 10) when the call came in, reporting a starving horse near the road leading to Mt. Baldy ski resort.
Theresa Nolet co-ordinator of Project Equus of Critteraid took the call. She thought it might have been one of the wild horses in the area.
Nolet says she left to pick up the person who had reported the horse hoping that it would still be in the area and could be assessed to see what could be done to provide some aid to the horse.
“Once the horse was located it was obvious that this was an emergency situation,” says Nolet.
She says she slowly approached the horse and to her amazement the horse was not wild and was in fact very tame. A halter was slipped over his head and a call was made to Ken McRae of D-bar-K ranch in Oliver who quickly agreed to transport the horse to the Critteraid farm in Summerland.
