Volunteers helped to look after the horses and one of them, Janice MacLaughlin, decided to adopt one of the horses named Becca.

  4. Amazing how sometimes, horses can make it back from hell they’ve been through. Nice job ladies in News Brunswick! And hay, SPCA did their jobs there, in that situation. Also,so good to read that.
    I wish they could give Luckett and Vicki Crocker, the attitude adjustment they both need here in Ontario.
