Spirit, an American Saddlebred gelding, was born in 2000 to a mare who was rescued, along with 10 other Saddlebreds in 1999 by Equine Advocates. It was one of the most written about animal abuse cases involving horses during that time. We raised the money to go to court and purchase the horses at a bankruptcy hearing. Spirit’s dam (mother), Sienna along with all of the horses were adopted out, but Spirit came back to us in 2004. Spirit spends his days with his best friends, Kip and Bandit in an area of the sanctuary we call “Goodfellas.”
