Janie is a chestnut Thoroughbred Mare born on February 11, 2008. Although she was tattooed and registered under the racing name of Faith to Faith, she never actually raced. In September of 2019, she was rescued out of a Pennsylvania kill pen by Gerda’s Equine Rescue in Vermont. She was completely emaciated at the time and had serious soundness issues. On February 26, 2020, Janie arrived at Equine Advocates to be a companion for a gelding recuperating from multiple surgeries and needed a stable mate with a kind and low key disposition. Janie still has soundness issues, but outside of the fact that she was bred in New York State by AIOSA Farm, very little is known about her background or how she ended up being scrapped for slaughter when she was only eleven years old. We are so grateful to Gerda for coming to the rescue of this very sweet mare and saving her life. Since her arrival here, Janie has adjusted well and seems to enjoy her new life at the sanctuary with her boyfriend, Tyler, in the area we call “Honor & Glory” pasture. We named her for the legendary singer, Jane Olivor who is a horse lover and a great friend of Equine Advocates. Photo credit: Melissa Murray
