New Video of Rescued Horses Twister and River


It was the dead of winter and the grass was eaten down to the ground - there was no sign of edible hay anywhere on the Keating's North Carolina pasture. Eight horses - one pregnant mare, three mares with babies, and a stallion - had been eating bark off of trees in a desperate attempt to get something into their stomachs.

Rain, one of the eight horses would die from the Keatings' neglect, but thanks to the action of a concerned neighbor, the seven surviving horses were seized and are now recovering at the United States Equine Rescue League sanctuary. On the heels of their rescue, ALDF filed a lawsuit against Michael, Judy and Gayle Keating, the three individuals responsible for these horses' well-being.

Watch a new video of Twister and River, two of the young rescued horses, and follow our progress in court on May 18th as our team of attorneys fights for permanent custody of Groucho - the neglected stallion who has since been brought to safety, but whose legal ownership is still in question. You can follow ALDF's blog or Facebook page to keep up-to-date with developments on this case as they happen.


Please help sustain our fight for these horses and other animals in need. Together, we can lead the fight against animal abuse across the county and ensure that people who abuse animals are brought to justice!
