has encountered. Horse owners should take the responsibly for their horses.Our vet charges us $30.00 to

ETHRS # 66 Happy

Hooves In Heaven
ETHRS was going to seize Happy from his neglectful owner and they opted to surrender
him to the rescue.
Happy is 31 years old and he won my heart in the short months he was with us, He was
always Happy to see us as he would nicker each time he seen us.
Happy was with us for four months as he progressed gaining weight he was so in-mobile
the lamina died in his hooves there for abscess developed and infections set in. Happy
would have never lead a pain free life.
ETHRS gave Happy the greatest gift of all, on November 21, 2006 we set Happy Free.
Happy runs pain free in “The Place We Call Hooves In Heaven”

we lost Travis when he became affected with West Niles due
to Travis being so wild we could not pen him or catch him to
vaccinate him against this horrible diseases . ETHRS is
seeking funds to build a pipe catch pen with a shoot to pen

Angel Horse was a victim of intent cruelty. He was found tied to a tree in the woods left to
starve to death. He was only four years old. He passed away on 5/18/09 in the rescues horse
trailer as we was getting him medical help. It is a shame that someone is so cruel to do this to
a horse and still walk free. The owner or person that did this is unknown.
