Belleville, Ontario – Homes, hay needed for rescue horses

Adoptions and donations of hay are needed for three horses rescued by the Quinte Humane Society.

“For horses that haven’t had a lot done with them they’re really friendly,” society manager Jenny Duffy said Monday.

The horses — two colts and a filly, all yearlings — are, however, in need of care. All three have hernias and it’s not yet known if the society can afford the surgery.

“We’re hoping a local vet can do it,” Duffy said. “To send her off Guelph would be money that we just don’t have.”

All need grooming and are underweight, but the colts are in better shape and may soon be ready for adoption.

Duffy said the trio was bought for $5 per horse at the auction barn in Hoard’s Station, northwest of Stirling-Rawdon. But the “well-meaning” buyer died, she said.
